I play minecraft on PC, I have two accounts and I am giving one to my friend.

She loves minecraft but only plays on xbox at the moment, but I want to play with her and I refuse to play on xbox.

How can you make the PC version closer to the XBox version. I am specifically looking for controller support and an easy crafting method. like the example below Example

  • @Caleb Not a duplicate - I specifically need it to be as close to xbox version as possible. there are many ways to incorporate a controller but not that i have found with the simplified crafting system that you have with xbox.

  • @Flaunting I have VTC'd just before reading your comment. I think it is a duplicate right now, since the questions is about playing MC with a controller. I will suggest an edit of the title in just a few minutes.

Controller Support

The question Caleb linked shows several options for Controller support.

  1. Use a program to map the Controller to Keyboard and Mouse presses, like XPadder.
  2. The Minecraft Joypad/Splitscreen Mod can also be used, and is far more integrated into the game (Tooltips and such). The XBox Gamepad is natively supported. Supports 1.6.4, 1.7.2 and 1.7.10 using Forge.

Crafting Grid

Looking around for a bit on reddit, your best bet seems to be CJB's QuickCraft. I think you will still have to deal with moving a cursor with a gamepad, but at least there's no dragging items into the grid.

According to the website, the latest version is for MC 1.6.4, though another site lists it for 1.7.2/4 as well, so you might try it out (If you do, feel free to comment or edit the results into this answer).
