Starter Worlds

The "Starter Worlds" are designed to show you how to write your own Worlds for each of the different APIs.

Clone them and edit them to make changes. Many of them have a section of code called a "tweaker's box" at the top. These are simple lines of code, such as the names of files, that can be changed by anyone without needing to be a programmer. Go and try it:

  1. Pick a World.
  2. Clone it.
  3. Edit the clone.
  4. Change things in the "tweaker's box" and run it again to see what happens.
