The agent is a mob that helps players learn coding, by getting players to code the actions on the agent.


The agent is used in conjunction with Code Connection for Minecraft, and is programmable by a visual ScratchX interface.

The agent carries its own 27-item inventory, which can be manipulated by commands that the player programs it to use, or edited directly by a GUI that the player can access in-game.

The visual interface allows the player to drag and drop commands, structural constructs and other components into a sequence, and associate the sequence with a custom-named slash command, which can be executed in the traditional way, from the console.
