The moving and wood collecting pretty much happened on it's own.:) I should have been more specific since I'm slightly off topic. I was referring to the Recipe Book notifications. They appear for every item with a recipe, seem to appear for each color of an item, restart on every new world and appear in creative mode. Like others I find notifications more annoying then useful and agree there should be some options for controlling them.
Except Microsoft has NOTHING to do with Minecraft Java Edition updates. At all.
Microsoft spent $2.5 Billlion for Mojang. They may not work on the JAVA version directly but I guarantee they influence it's overall market path. Based on their behavior with Windows 10... I'm expecting ads at some point in the future.
Anyway... I still find the notifications annoying.:) I don't think it's too much to ask for some control over notifications. I do like the recipe book with the crafting table. Makes blocking items easy.
I find notifications in general irritating. There needs to be an OFF button in the settings to disable them. Not only the forced tutorial messages but also the advancement messages and recipe book messages. I've gotten about 15 messages in a 5 minute period. The constant sliding on and off in the corner is annoying. I'm sure it will stop... once I've gotten every achievement and recipe. Then it will reset on every update. I personally don't care about tutorials, advancements or the recipe book. Have no use for these messages.
People need to complain. Companies count on lazy people to do the easiest thing. Especially Microsoft. This is most likely the first step toward Microsoft pushing ads into Minecraft. Get players used to sliding messages. Next... get players used to sliding ad messages. Finally... get players used to sliding ad messages based on their in game chat. Did you tell MineCrafter_56930848 that you liked movies? We noticed you were building a cobble tower... maybe you would be interested in the Two Towers by J.R.R Tolkien. Shearing a sheep... do you need a shirt from Amazon. Your laptop isn't working... you should buy a Microsoft Surface with Windows 10.
