What Would You Do If You Could Build Anything?

Who would you become?

Imagine you have the power to code anything you desire…

Imagine returning to your Minecraft server where everything is built from the ground up, the way you always wanted!

Without relying on limited plugins with poor configuration and inactive developers, or the endless hunt for developers actually can deliver what they promise and actually care for your server.

Welcome to Project Orion, the world’s largest Minecraft training bringing you from an absolute beginner, having never touched computer code before, to a beast having an absolute control of everything Minecraft has to offer!

A man thinking about Minecraft plugins

You Can't Win If You Can't Control

Limited plugins, inactive developers, poor support, constant bugs and bugs on each Minecraft update…

The way you’re treated is a giant slap in the face for any serious server owner…

In the end you have to install 100s of plugins, slowing your entire server down and making it look like a cheap clone of thousands of others out there…

And when you try to make plugins alone, the work and the time you have to put into it is frustrating.

Many servers are stuck on an old Minecraft version because of this. Many servers will close their doors this year.

The question is: Will you close yours?

Introducing Project Orion....

World's Most Advanced & Biggest Minecraft Training To Help You Learn Java, Become Self-Reliant And Change Your Life

Java training

Includes A Complete Java Training

If you've never coded before, you'll understand WHY things work and it's going to be FUN - everything we'll create are real, usable Java applications in 4 high-intense weeks of coaching.

- Beginner-friendly Java training optimized for Minecraft plugins without wasting time learning things you'll never need.

- Deep object-oriented programming module explaining how are things connected together and how to design your entire program the same way as high-paid professionals.

- Best practices when using static/non-static code.

And if you've already coded before in Java, Python or other languages, you'll fill in the gaps and learn advanced concepts such as:

- Multi-threading and async processing.

- Writing bots such as scrambling online websites or connecting with your server-side scripts.

- Static constructors and instance initializers.

- Writing clean, modular code that'll last for years without time-consuming rewrites.

Advanced Psychological Coder's Training

This is not your typical "how to code" training. After seeing 2,000+ students take our program, we've noticed that how you think affects your results more than how you work.

- "Facing off with the devil" module will teach you who's this force causing chaos, procrastination and laziness in your life and how to show him who's the boss.

- "War Map Calendar" and the exact same daily steps we've used since 2019 to build our entire MineAcademy with.

- How to motivate yourself and keep going despite failure, drama or uncertainty to turn you into an insatiable beast working for success and winning.

We'll basically rebuild you to think like a person who already got results. This is the #1 drive of success that we have seen in our program and it comes from this deep psychological shift.

GUI tutorial

Create Beautiful Menu & GUI Systems

Project Orion includes an extensive GUI system for menus. Create menus easily, automatically list items, add pages, buttons, navigation and more. Even live containers that players can edit which you can use for mini-games or entire server setups. It’s all there.

We also talk about settings and configuration (with automatic file updating) and server to player conversations with real-life examples taken from our successful plugins.

You will even be able to design your entire GUI system from settings and sell it as a high-end premium plugin (such as Boss™ that we've been selling since 2017).

Minigames tutorial

Design Minigames Like Big Networks

Learn to build your own SkyWars, Egg Wars, UHC, Monster Arena, CTF and virtually any minigame you desire (without spending $1,000s on developers)!

Learn everything from simple mechanics of a game to advanced logic and automated systems.

Spawn waves of monsters with increasing difficulty or use packets and resource packs to achieve a cutting edge game features like you’ve seen on the big networks.

Here’s what you will see us build (including source codes!):

- Monster arena
- Deathmatch, duel and team deathmatch
- Capture The Flag
- EggWars, BedWars, SkyWars
- Spleef

If you have a unique idea for a never-seen before minigame, this is your time. Using these skills you will be able to create virtually ANY game you can think of. The only limit is your imagination.

Custom monsters tutorial

Custom Monsters & RPG Systems

What would you do if you could modify behavior of every Minecraft mob? Attacking animals, villager pets, or totally innocent zombies?

Regardless if you code for Minecraft 1.8.8, 1.18 or newer we will show you how to achieve this without long hours tampering with NMS or reflection.

Create NPCs giving players missions image

Missions & Quests For Your NPCs

Enliven your server with human-like NPCs talking to players and taking quests!

We show you how to create NPCs giving players missions such as “Deliver an item” or “Find a certain location” or “Kill X amount of zombies in Z minutes”, and even how to connect NPCs with menu systems you create in this training.

Create a motivating system for players to complete quests to increase their rank, class tier or statistic or anything you desire. We even show you how to connect this with a database for BungeeCord or your website!

Self-Updating settings & localization tutorial

Self-Updating Settings & Localization

How many times you'll need to manually open your settings files and adjust after editing your plugin's code after our training?

Zero. That's right, that's the amount of work you (and your customers) have to do manually after we show you our self-updating mechanism.

We also show you how to store custom classes and serialize them easily into YAML or even JSON and how to send custom data to your database so you can synchronize settings over your BungeeCord network.

Our settings support # commentaries automatically being placed at the right location and are fully reloadable. We even have self-repairing checks in case your customers misunderstand and place invalid values to your settings.

Why MineAcademy?

We practice what we teach.

You'll be learning the top of the game coding practices we've been perfecting since the launch of ChatControl plugin in 2013. We do what we teach and we do it well.

Designed for busy people.

Many of our students have real-life jobs, studies and families. All of our training is on-demand, and if you can't attend live calls, watch their replay at any time.

Direct instructor access.

Figuring it out alone is frustrating and slow. We're here for you if you need extra time without shaming. That's why you'll get a direct contact with our instructor.

Clear structure. Easy to follow.

Learning from YouTube often feels chaotic or shallow. We take the extra time to update our training and explain why things work for maximum understanding.

Get Access To The Best Coaching
And Coaches In The World

Matej Pacan is the CEO & lead coach for MineAcademy. You’ll learn lessons from his over a decade in Java programming and tactics that 700,000 downloads and 900+ positive reviews.

Project Orion™ is a fully interactive platform where you watch videos, complete worksheets, download source codes and more. Take notes and record progress directly within the platform.

Skool & Discord are our private communities. Ask questions, find friends or show your code easily. Join our live calls every week and ask anything!

Build THE Community To Return To

30 seconds. If players don’t like what they see within that time period, they leave

The few servers that prosper and grow are the ones with laser focus on a certain game type and a community (fandom) around it.

Building magnetic experience is impossible if you glue 50 random plugins together. You want a great server, you have to make it custom-tailored to your players.

Once you master plugin making, you will be able to use anything Minecraft has to offer in unique, new ways, on demand. Without expensive developers, without months spent wasting finding out the perfect plugin. The perfect plugin is the one you create.

Get Personal Support Directly From Your Instructor

Here’s what Aikar, the creator of Paper said, when we first started:

Customer feedback feedback screenshot from Aikar

Every week our instructor is sitting down with YOU to answer ANY questions (no matter if they are “beginner-like”), and even if you don’t have a microphone you can chat and get answers in real-time. The level of support is the closest you can get from an educational institution.

We also have a private 400+ member group on Discord and Skool with private messages and group discussions. People use it to get help, find coding partners or share their creations.

Frequent Questions

Do you have more questions? Email [email protected].

Yes! Even if you like to play football and never coded anything before, the course is designed to help you ease into it and start within the first week.

You can complete this in your own time and always return to it when you need to. You have lifetime access. We have students who were clueless when they started and now are able to build plugins beyond measure. If you are willing to put in the effort you will learn quickly.

I totally understand… I tried EVERYTHING out there and developed various tools and techniques to help myself stay on track and push through that I am now sharing. I would not be able to deliver a 4.85-star rated course without them.

I am sharing specific psychological and practical tips in Week 1 of Project Orion!. I 100% believe that with these tools you achieve more than the ‘average’ people that are free of ADD would ever do.

It’s also worth to mention that you have lifetime access, there’s no pressure or time limit as for when you have to finish. Our private member group is always there for you. I’ve been coding everyday since 2013 so we’re not going away any time soon. Proof: here (see the date when ChatControl was published)

Videos can be paused, rewinded, you can change the speed to 0.50, 0.75, 1.25 or even 1.50x depending on how you like it.

Here’s what our students say:

If English is not your first language and you’re afraid that you will not be able to follow up, we have good news for you.

First, each video has a textual presentation of what we are going to cover, so you can just read it from the screen. Second, there are lots of downloadable materials you can just translate yourself.

You can go ahead and try it, with our 30 days money back guarantee, there’s no risk.

We decided to split the course into three packages to make it super accessible to everyone.

And if you still can’t afford it, I think you would agree that you need this program more than anyone. In fact, some of my most successful students have had their back against the wall financially when they started (as did I).

So I want you to eliminate the thought “I can’t afford this” and instead replace it with “How can I afford this”.

You need to get creative and think of how you can find the money, which is really just a temporary investment into yourself that will pay off for years to come. There’s PayPal financing, credit cards, loans, parents, friends, family, you could even sell something and use the money from that. Don’t just use that excuse, get creative and start thinking of ways that you can make this work. 

With our level of coaching and support, we’re currently among the most affordable platforms out there. You’ll get a lifetime access, no monthly fees.

What we teach will work on Windows, macOS and Linux.

In fact, we have separate setup videos for Windows and macOS. You will find links to your specific platform for all software we use along with detailed setup instructions.

You can use IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse or even NetBeans or any other tool to code.

The course is recorded using IntelliJ however it includes separate setup instructions for Eclipse as well.

We always support the latest Minecraft version down to Minecraft 1.7.10.

And if you want to code for an older Minecraft version, you can utilize our special automatic compatibility layer that will make your code work across all MC versions WITHOUT you having to write twice, three times or do complicated things like importing multiple versions etc.. You will learn this in the course.

Yes it will work for you, we understand that most people are very busy and have full time jobs, families, commutes and hardly any free time. We designed this program so that you can work through it even if you’re hard pressed for time. You can listen to the training while travelling, on the bus or even at your job with headphones in.

It doesn’t matter what your schedule is like, if you can set aside at least 3 hours per week you will be able to work your way through it.

Even if you can’t start right away… reserve your spot and go at your own pace. All important lessons are pre-recorded and available on-demand. You can complete them in your own time. And if you’re asking about the Q&A calls, those are live and, yes we record and archive all of them. So if you can’t attend, send us questions beforehand and simply watch us answer them in the replay.

I’ve tried that and, it costed me 10 years. There’s only a few 10 year’s in your life before your life is over.

When I started I had to learn everything from extremely poor sources out there like YouTube, outdated Spigot articles or decompiling source. Soon I discovered how painfully slow and frustrating it was. 

The problem with free YouTube tutorials, Udemy courses or Spigot forum posts is that they are painfully chaotic, disorganized, outdated, unsupported and offer terrible coding standards. Lots of people say lots of different things, leaving you confused, not understanding WHY things the way they do. 

What we do differently is we offer a proven system, detailed and high-quality content, expert mentorship and supportive community. There’s step-by-step process you follow, get help when needed and get results, everything is organized and updated regularly.

Next, in all of my paid products I use the Foundation library to remove repetitive code. People waste weeks coding from scratch and never really get to their ideas since they waste so much time on the basics that it’s driving me insane. That’s why I decided to take out that library, battle-proven and tested in all premium plugins since 2015, and teach using it.

Finally I’m a huge believer in self-development and self-mastery, and will show you how to get organized, disciplined and achieve greater results in the arenas of life you’ll set for yourself. There are honestly no courses in Minecraft let alone in computer programming with an empathy on self-mastery.

And you and I know that once you get stuck, frustrated or simply life happens it’s not just about coding… After speaking with lots of students I included self-mastery and self-development parts in our new courses.

I think the best way to explain what’s inside is to show you, that’s why we’re offering a free trial of Project Orion Platinum Edition here.
