Queensland Minecraft

Queensland Minecraft is a program to allow participants to use design thinking and game-based learning to construct their community within the Minecraft 3D environment. During the sessions, participants use mapping techniques to recreate their regions while learning about the history of landmarks and features of the area.

There are 2 different servers and the one you use is dependent on the if you are using a tablet or computer. Tablets use the Minecraft Pocket server, while computers use the Minecraft Java server.

The servers are not linked, so any users and creations on one server will not be able to see or interact with the other server.

QLD Minecraft, while a private server, does have a few rules that players need to follow to make sure everyone has a fun and safe experience.

  • Respect other players and moderators, and be courteous
  • No Griefing (intentionally destroying or stealing other players’ builds or items, entering locked buildings or building too close to others builds)
  • No swearing or inappropriate language/symbols in chat, signs, or builds
  • No trying to bypass blocks or limitations purposely set by the server (ie restricted build areas or changing the game mode from Creative to Survival)
  • No bullying or harassing others
  • No sharing or personal or identifying information in chat (including telephone numbers, personal addresses, age, real names)
  • No client-side mods
  • No spamming
  • No breaking through the ground to the void, causing other players to fall to their deaths

Treehouse opened on 1st March allowing participants to build a treehouse with other participants from their region, competing across the State for the ultimate treehouse championship.

This April school holidays program has been extended and will remain open for the duration of 2020.
