Mineteria Boombox

I developed Boombox, a music player experience for the Mineteria Minecraft: Java Edition network.

The Challenge

Having an amazing in-game experience is very important, but sometimes the limitations of Minecraft: Java Edition can prove to be too much. The Mineteria team quickly realized that their existing approach of bundling music in the resource pack was ultimately untenable, especially with the amount of custom content they needed to include as well.

Results

As a result, I developed the Boombox, a simple client and server interface. The server allows the Minecraft servers to queue songs upon user request, and the client allows players to play songs. The server also handles moving between servers.
