we just need a giga server with 5,000 slots or so and a program that randomly assigns spawn points on a 50mb map....... so anyone who wants to donate vast amounts of money for this god server will be my hero....
Well, considering Notch already have 1.7million dollars plus from this game selling alone. Not to mention future updates and more people. He makes business with other companies and when actual advertisement comes into play. This game will be godlike. He should have enough funding for a server enough to do this kind of thing.

just think, we're one of the thousands of people who will have been written down in history for having played the almighty GOD LIKE GAME THAT IS MINECRAFT, a game like no other which will last for EONS TO COME. We're pretty fcking important as it is.
I have been thinking about the idea of finding a creation after months of playing you didn't make while also thinking about herobrine. For some odd reason I never had such strong cold chills I really think minecraft has the potential to be a frightening game. Just thinking that you know the world yet you know so little... more cold chills
That was pretty close to my initial thought of how multiplayer would work, since I had read something about our SP saves not being lost, that when MP was complete, he'd flip some magic switch or something and selecting MP would connect to the main server, and if you wandered off you might stumble upon someone's base or other people could roam through your lands. Unfortunately that's not how it works but from the little bit I have poked around in MP it's not too bad, I'll be more interested when it's more complete and people start investing some serious powerful servers to it. Honestly I think if Minecraft was an MMO like that, it'd easily make GOTY- ALL YEARS. I wish I had some programming knowledge or something so I could maybe toy with making it a reality or help Notch out and work for him. :B
edit: a 50MB map would be faaaaaar too small for it to be a comfortable reality; unless you want insane greifing and competition for minerals.
