Introducing Turtles: Programmable robots in Minecraft.

Current Version: Turtles 0.2 for CraftBukkit 1.7.9-R0.1.

This project is open-source! Check out the GitHub page.

Version 0.3 has been posted to BukkitDev and is currently waiting for approval!

How it works

Using this plugin is very simple!

To begin, craft an turtle:

Next, you need to take a book and quill and write your commands. (for a list of commands, see below)

You can seperate different commands with newlines (enter).

When you're finished writing your program, put the book and quill in the first slot of the turtle (this is important!).

Almost finished! The last thing you need to do is to apply a redstone pulse to the turtle and the turtle will execute all the commands that you gave it.


  • turtles.* - Access to all permissions.
  • turtles.place - Allows you to place a turtle.
  • turtles.break - Allows you to break a turtle of another player.
  • turtles.open - Allows you to open a turtle of another player.


At this time in development there is no configuration system.
