I was playing Survival mode today, and after a bit of digging around, I started feeling sick, kind of dizzy. If I played for much longer I would probably throw up, so I had to quit.

Is there any reason for this?

Something to do with FPS's giving motion sickness sometimes, or it's coincidence.

LG_Legacy, it's not motion sickness, cause you're not moving. It's called simulation sickness, usually it shouldn't happen if you have the crosshair in the middle, because it's a focal point. But yes, you can try turning off the view bobbing if it's on.

You want to throw up? The feeling you get while vomiting isn't a nice one at all.

You have now discovered the secret 3rd option of Minecraft play:

Seizure Mode

How do you enable it? I can only get it to work by jumping down a rainbow tower.
