Description

Schematic2Blueprint is a program to slize MineCraft Schematic export files into single planes. Some people like I myself lack the creativity to build something great in MineCraft, but we still enjoy building stuff. With this program, it is possible to take awesome stuff other people made (and released as Schematic files) and generate a blueprint out of them for rebuilding them.
It also supports exports in either PNG images for the single layers or animated GIF files.

It is also usefull for finding hidden stuff in the schematics, for example, the Millennium Falcon (see below) contains a hidden smuggler chamber that most people probably wouldn't even expect.

A great source for such Schematic files is the website mcschematics.com

Texture pack support

Schematic2Blueprint supports MineCraft texture packs of the size 16x16. The process to do this is similar to the normal install process of the texture pack. You have to take the terrain.png and items.png images out of the texturepack, then open the Schematic2Blueprint jar file in an archive program like WinZip, go to the directory /klaue/mcschematictool/ inside it and replace the terrain.png and items.png there with those of the texture pack.

Screenshots

The Schematic used in the screenshots is "Millennium Falcon Flying.schematic", which is, as the name implies, the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars. Megatech rebuilt it inside MineCraft and was nice enough to let people have the schematic of it, downloadable here.

How to start

You'll need java version 6, but since MineCraft itself needs java, you'll probably allready have it.

If everything works, you can just double-click the bat (windows) or the sh (linux, mac (probably)).

Licence

Would be nice if you would drop a link back to me if you put it in another forum or extend it. As for the rest, you're only bound to the licence of JNBT. See the Licence directory in the jar file for the full licence text.

Schematic2Blueprint also uses the GIF encoder from FM Software

Just downloaded the latest (1.5.1) & opened a Schematic exported using MCEdit.. Getting 'there were some faulty blocks in the schematic. They were replaced by air'.

Managed to narrow it down to trapdoors that are always 'powered' (until player walks on pressure plates)

Suggestion: maybe Highlight 'faulty blocks' to make it easier to see where the problem lies, or just fix the problem for 'powered trapdoors'

Trapdoors do not actually change if powered or not. Only if it is open and where it's attached: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Data_values#Trapdoors
So I guess you got some problems with mods.
Also, as far as I remember, those faulty logs actually generate a message if you start it with the console

Any time I try to open a large blueprint it errors "Out of Memory). Is there a fix for this?

#168 Robert wrote at 05/13/2014 08:35 AM (EST):
To clarify my previous comment. The error is "Ran out of memory while opening schematic"

#169 Klaue wrote at 05/13/2014 10:59 PM (EST):
You can increase the memory it's allowed to use. Open "windows.bat" in a text editor and change the Xmx Parameter (standard 512 megabytes) to something higher like 1024m.

I am trying to download this program onto my laptop that has windows 8 and it won't let me open the file after I have extracted it. It works fine on my desktop which is a windows 7. Any way to get this to work on a windows 8 OS.

Most probably you do not have java installed yet

Many thanks for this awesome program! Would love to see an update for this! I use it a lot!

#159 _Xoft(o) wrote at 12/06/2013 01:13 PM (EST):
Would it be possible to update this nice utility so that it opens whatever schematic file I give it on the command line? That way I could assign it to automatically open .schematic files on windows. Thanks.

Any plans to update this to 1.7?

#158 Klaue wrote at 11/17/2013 04:41 PM (EST):
not really. maybe some day, but I'm tired of minecraft's constant updates

#161 aluc wrote at 01/29/2014 12:26 PM (EST):
that's a pitty. If you won't update this program, is there any other software we could use? We desperately need something...
