Texture pack support
How to start

Post comment (Allready 201)


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

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.

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)).

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

After looking at the pictures you have posted to build the Millenium Falcon layer by layer i really want to build it. It looks awesome and much better than most of the videos on youtube. Unfortunately i cannot download the files to print off. I have tried to download java and a zip file programme but i am useless with computers. I was wondering if it was possible for you to email me the pictures please. I have printed off the pic of 15 stages but they are blurry when i zoom in to have a closer look. Many thanks and look forward to your reply, Paul

Just spent a free weekend adding to your project. It's great, the framework was so intuitive and easy to work with!

So, here's what I did...

Added Acacia and Dark Oak tree types, slabs, leaves, stairs, saplings

Updated potions

Fixed a little bug with Lever - 0-15, not 0-14

Added "top Half" support to Wood Trap Doors. Haven't touched Iron trap doors yet.

Added Hay Bales, but can't do directions, because they don't use Block Data, now it's the new Block State system

Added all known Minecraft blocks to NameProvider

Added variants of Dirt

Added Red Sand variant, haven't touched the stairs or red sandstone yet

Added Carpet (and did a real crappy job)

Added Monster Egg blocks (a schematic I used had a ton of them)

Anyway, get a hold of me if you want to see/distribute what I've changed.

I would love to see your changes added. Many of the projects I have wanted to use contain the newer blocks not found on the original program all I see is question marks.

Wrote him a mail weeks ago now, never got an answer. Either the mail given in the comments (only I can see them) was wrong or he lost interest

#191 Edd wrote at 04/28/2015 02:05 PM (EST):
Oh well I was hoping that he would have the update. this is an awesome program!

Hi, sorry, life got busy. Here's what I've got so far.

thanks so much for doing it holy lord. I downloaded it however it won't open. :/

#197 Mike wrote at 08/10/2015 07:29 AM (EST):
Same as Alex, unable to get the new version to run. :( Getting errors that crash to desktop on a Mac (10.10 with JRE 6.x). Original works well, at least. :)

How can we add items ourselves?

#179 Lettie wrote at 11/23/2014 10:43 AM (EST):
One of my favorite little Minecraft utilities. As someone who's rubbish at building things that actually look nice in-game, it's nice to be able to take apart things that other people have built and try and get ideas from that to make my own builds look nice. Not to mention it's Mac-compatible. :)

Would be nice if it were updated to support the newer blocks in the newer updates, but hey, it's not a huge deal. Bet you have your reasons for not updating and I can't even begin to say how much this little program has helped.

#180 Klaue wrote at 11/24/2014 12:14 AM (EST):
I did check out what was changed.. Don't have the numbers in my head, but were somewhere around 20 blocks and 30 items, ubdating would probably require at least 8, probably more hours. And that for something I don't even use anymore as I don't play MC anymore..

#181 Nokraa wrote at 01/12/2015 06:01 PM (EST):
So, I've been helping out updating jmc2obj and I was thinking I could help out with this one too. If that's okay with you of course. I just need to know how you've set up the block types. jmc2obj uses config files to hold block data.

#182 Klaue wrote at 01/13/2015 02:57 PM (EST):
Well, I don't know what that is and the website seems to not want to let me know, so I dunno what you need.
but feel free to do with that as you wish, I now doubt I will ever find the drive again to work on it. It has been years since I really played MC

#185 xz wrote at 02/09/2015 09:33 AM (EST):
Source code? Would be helpful to get things caught up to date by anyone.

#186 Klaue wrote at 02/09/2015 12:37 PM (EST):

If you're able to update it Nokraa it'd be awesome if you could share it! :)

Can some one tell me how to open this on my mac. I double click on the sh file and it opens in note pad. Ive tried googleing it but none of the results are in language i can understand.

#178 Klaue wrote at 11/11/2014 04:16 PM (EST):
If you got java (if not, install that first), try doubleclicking the jar

#176 Alex wrote at 08/20/2014 06:47 PM (EST):
absolutely love this program, fantastic work! although it isn't fully up to date with all the newer blocks i've still managed to figure out what blocks are what. the main problem i've noticed however is that any of the new types of wood (dark oak, acacia) show up as "air" and i'm not sure how to go about having it tell me the item ID number (like it does with clay and glass panes) instead of a blank spot :(
