Before I watch it through, do they acknowledge the problems with 1.3.x? Or do they pretend everything's fine and it's the best thing ever?

They don't really acknowledge the issues with terrain generation. Jeb claims it's the thing he gets the "most negativity" about and he "doesn't want to change it again".

You shouldn't listen to anything above this line. It is lies and hearsay, I tell you.

If he gets the most negativity about it, why wont he change it?? That defies common sense.

He said problems- as in, plural.  That said...
Someone needs to smack Jeb upside the head- that kind of attitude is childish.  People tell you about obvious flaws with the game, you fix it- don't pull a Bethesda and ignore the problem.  It isn't about 'changing it', it's about fixing something that you broke.

And why the [b]hell [/b]is there [u][b][i]lag[/i][/b][/u] in my [b]singleplayer [/b]world?  We're out of beta, Mojang, weren't the snapshots supposed to be the developmental versions?

He gets negativity of changing it cause when he does we get chunk borders. Ever noticed between your 1.8 and 1.0, or your 1.1 and 1.2 worlds, when you explored new terrain in the new update, there would be an ugly border where it changes from jungle to Tagia in a straight line and creates a flatwall? thats what they're talking about

Um what lag? I don't get any lag in single player at all. I'm using fancy graphics, far render distance, all particles, and I'm also using a 128x128 texture pack.

Nah, it can barely handle Skyrim on medium. But what i meant by what i said is that even with those settings and the texture pack i get no lag. So it might be something to do with his computer or maybe it is actually something to do with the game itself.

Mojang not doing what they said they would?

IMPOSSIBRU.

I've long suspected they just wanted to merge singleplayer and multiplayer for the lulz of making the game lag for everyone and not just multiplayers.

Protip; take anything they say with a ton of salt.

you know.. i would LOVE to see one of you N00bs try to program yourself, im a junior programer and it would take me YEARS to do what they do in a week. plus, this probebly isnt what they do all day long, try to be more considerate for once. they may be working on minecraft for another 2 years. i can see the final update be at the end of 2014 and no sooner. just give them some time.
PRETEND THERE IS AN EPIC BANNER RIGHT HERE! oh, fyi, i need beta testers: http://www.minecraft...or-the-captain/

JFI: I'm a C coder for 12 years now.
But apart from that, they can of course take as much time as they need to achieve their goals. The one and only problem for me is, that they shouldn't promise things which they can't deliver.
First, the mod-API should be finally implemented in 1.3, then they said it'll come in 1.4, and now everything looks like it even won't come in 1.4.
