This is probably the greatest thing I’ve ever seen:
Incredible! I demand everyone go and tell the talented person behind this how great they are right now. Incidentally, if this video made you long for your own real life turtle, you can get one at the ComputerCraft shapeways store! All proceeds go towards keeping me alive so I can keep on making ComputerCraft.

As always, plenty of bugfixes and stability improvements!
Sorry this one took a while to get out! I’ve been very busy, and working on a secret project related to ComputerCraft that I should be able to announce officially very soon! Thanks to Cloudy for all his help with this port, and everyone who helped with Beta Testing. Happy Hacking!
ComputerCraft requires Minecraft version 1.5 and an up to date version of Minecraft Forge. Once forge is installed, drop ComputerCraft1.51.zip into your /mods/ directory, and launch the game.
Ported to Minecraft 1.5
Added Wired Modems
Added Networking Cables
Made Wireless Modems more expensive to craft
New redstone API functions: getAnalogInput(), setAnalogOutput(), getAnalogOutput()
Peripherals can now be controlled remotely over wired networks
New peripheral API function: getNames()
New event: “monitor_resize” when the size of a monitor changes
Except for labelled computers and turtles, ComputerCraft blocks no longer drop items in creative mode
The pick block function works in creative mode now works for all ComputerCraft blocks
All blocks and items now use the IDs numbers assigned by FTB by default
Fixed turtles sometimes placing blocks with incorrect orientations
Fixed Wireless modems being able to send messages to themselves
Fixed turtle.attack() having a very short range
I’m quite proud of this update. Wired networks are something people having been asking for for a while, and I’m really excited to see what people can achieve with them, especially their ability to control peripherals at a distance. ComputerCraft is also a Minecraft 1.5 mod now, which means Computers and Turtles can interact with all cool new redstone features of the latest update. As always: Thanks to everyone who helped with beta testing, and Happy Hacking!
As part of the ongoing ComputerCraft media rampage, this weekend I had the pleasure of appearing on The Shaft podcast. I talked about ComputerCraft, Feed the Beast, and other assorted nonsenses, and dropped some hints about a couple of new features coming soon to the mod. Here’s a preview of one of them:
ComputerCraft requires Minecraft version 1.4.7 (or 1.4.6) and an up to date version Minecraft Forge. Once forge is installed, drop ComputerCraft1.5.zip into your /mods/ directory, and launch the game.
Redesigned Wireless Modems; they can now send and receive on multiple channels, independent of the computer ID. To use these features, interface with modem peripherals directly. The rednet API still functions as before.
Floppy Disks can now be dyed with multiple dyes, just like armour.
The “excavate” program now retains fuel in it’s inventory, so can run unattended.
turtle.place() now tries all possible block orientations before failing.
turtle.refuel(0) returns true if a fuel item is selected.
turtle.craft(0) returns true if the inventory is a valid recipe.
The in-game help system now has documentation for all the peripherals and their methods, including the new modem functionality.
A romantic surprise.
Happy hacking! Thanks to everyone who helped with Beta Testing.
No, your eyes are not deceiving you: Photographed above are four Turtles and a Computer, set free from their natural habitat, and wreaking havoc in the real world! Unchecked, these critters will quickly start seeking coal and crafting copies of themselves, each one of them on a mission to excavate the Earth until it’s nothing but a flat expanse of bedrock. To save our planet from this fate, please: Adopt a Turtle today. By giving a turtle a safe home, you’ll not only be making a friend for life: You’ll be doing the Earth a favour.
It’s been discovered that a small change to the peripheral API in ComputerCraft 1.48 broke the popular MiscPeripherals mod by RichardG. A lot of people use this mod, so I’ve released this quick hotfix to solve the problem. You don’t need to install this update if you or your server don’t use MiscPeripherals (but you should try it out, it’s quite good!)
Update: It seems there is also a conflict between MiscPeripherals and Equivalent Exchange 3. If you have both these mods installed, you need to upgrade MiscPeripherals to the latest version. This is not a bug in ComputerCraft.
ComputerCraft requires Minecraft 1.4.6 or 1.4.7 and an appropriately up to date version Minecraft Forge. Once forge is installed, drop ComputerCraft1.481.zip into your /mods/ directory, and launch the game.
