Craftus 3D Reloaded

Craftus Reloaded is a homebrew Minecraft clone for Nintendo 3DS. It's under active development. It currently features only a creative-mode-esque game mode with infinite resources.


It's been a while since I started developing this version of Craftus. I started to do a rewrite, because the old Craftus was beyond fixable. Probably 15% is copied from the old Craftus the remaining part is rewritten.


  • An infinte world(in theory)
  • Two different world generators
  • Blocks, of multiple variants, can be broken and placed down to build structures
  • A basic inventory system
  • Saving and loading, multiple worlds
  • Clouds and menus
  • Sneaking and Flying

Default Controls

The controls can be changed by editing the file which can be found at sd:/craftus/options.ini (instructions can be found there too).

Known bugs

  • I experienced once, that blocks, which are newly placed in a specific chunk weren't rendered anymore, but blocks placed in another chunk were, but I couldn't reproduce this bug. Maybe it's related to old savefiles I hope I fixed this bug, because I couldn't find a way to reproduce it.
  • Making a screenshot with Luma Rosalina menu leads to crash Somehow this doesn't happen anymore


  • People who made 3DS homebrew possible
    • Especially smea for 3dscraft which is good place for stealing ideas inspiration
    • Contributors of the 3dbrew.org wiki and ctrulib
    • Fincs for citro3d
    • More people I forgot about, even though I extended this list multiple times
  • XSSheep, for the textures, taken from his resourcepack which is licensed under CC BY-SA
  • Tommaso Checchi, for his culling algorithm, orginally developed for the use in MC PE
  • Of course all other MC devs, how could I forget them?
  • All people who worked on the libraries Craftus is depending on(see the dependencies folder)
