A simple schematic file reader for nbtlib

Project description


A simple nbtlib Schema for reading or writing Schematic files for MCEdit and other world editors.


Python 3.6 or higher is required.

pip3 install nbtschematic


To load an existing MCEdit or other schematic file from disk, run:

from nbtschematic import SchematicFile
sf = SchematicFile.load('tests/test_schematic/simple.schematic')
print("The block at Y=%d, Z=%d, X=%d has block ID %d" %
(2, 3, 0, sf.blocks[2, 3, 0]))

To generate a schematic file in python, run:

from nbtschematic import SchematicFile
sf = SchematicFile(shape=(10, 8, 4))
assert sf.blocks.shape == (10, 8, 4)
sf.blocks[2, 3, 0] = 42'example.schematic')

The size of the schematic should be defined at construction time. Resizing it will clear the blocks and block data.

Other fields of interest include:

  • data: Block data for each and every block
  • entities: Everything that is not a block
  • blockentities: Extended metadata for blocks
