    Whoa, I totally forgot about that being said... That'll be something that we'll need to address Microsoft with.


    It is something worth talking about, I have a suspicion that it might already be void (?) though haven't seen anywhere confirm or reaffirm it.

    I'm fairly certain that the intent here is not to keep on releasing free updates forever, but to come out with a Minecraft 2 (which won't have any such promises attached).


    It will be something of interest if they do charge for updates on the Minecraft, as there will be customers like myself who have purchased with the belief that all future update/expansions/etc. will be free.

    Season Pass anyone? Hahaha

    I've posted this else where, but not sure it has been addressed, for those of us who brought the game in pre-alpha/alhpa there was a 'promise' I guess you could say, that future add-ons and expansions would be free to those customers.

    http://notch.tumblr.com/post/2175441966/minecraft-beta-december-20-2010

    "We will also change the license to remove the line that promises all future versions of the game for free. Please note that this change only affects people who buy the game after December 20, so if you got the game for during alpha, you will still get all future updates for free, despite this change. A promise is a promise. "


    this was taken from the purchase page.

    "Here's what you get:
    You never have to pay again! You get all future versions of the game, including all expansions and addons.
    You help fund the development of Minecraft
    Custom skins in multiplayer
    Once you've bought the game, it's yours. No DRM, you can do whatever you want with it.
    Survival mode!

    Planned expansions:
    Zombie Siege Build your defenses during the day, fend off the incoming masses during night.
    Capture the Flag Defend your base and flag against the enemy team while trying to steal their flag.
    Various custom level mods Want to import a doom map? How about playing in a random dungeon?
    And more! "

    it is incredibly vague and isn't truly defined, but I am only curious as I did buy it with this in mind. Would Microsoft still honor this if they create any additional add ons/expansions.

    I think wood and fences etc. have some awesome applications in Minecraft, I particularly like to build something which doesn;t upset the space to much.

    I guess this Desert home is a good example:
