    I would gladly let Notch add the Aether to the game. I wouldn't even care about money, I would just love the privilege of seeing something I helped create become a part of the actual game.

    Unfortunately it seems he's not too keen on the idea. :sad.gif:


    Thats right i forgot you created the Aether Mod.

    P.S. Can't wait for the Champ Mod!



    Quote from Trenix

    Go figure, you made the Aether mod. Of course you wouldn't want all your work to go to waste, so you'd prefer another dimension rather than something you've already made. I understand it takes time, he's not getting millions for nothing. If he wants to take on all that work, make him work his ass off. If he doesn't, than he should get more programmers. I don't see how that's your problem. Many fans want to give him some slack because of his popularity, but most don't understand that Notch has a job.

    A sky dimension would fit in the vanilla game. However, The End dimension, would not. It has very little to offer. If he created a basic sky dimension, many mods can arise from it. With The End, you need to be hallucinating to think of something so unusual to make that dimension interesting.




    I don't want an Aether, I just want a basic sky dimension without a nether theme.



    "Consider it confirmed." - Notch

    Are you honestly going to tell me that he didn't say that?

    And why are you attacking me, U mad bro?



    I never said you did. I said the guy i had originally responded to did and thats what i was explaining to him.

    And how do you know that will be it? They could just as easily add more later on. Just as you do not know that they will actually charge anything for these possible additions.

    This entire topic is grounded in mere speculations that cannot be verified one way or the other at present.



    This isn't mere speculation.

    It is FACT that anyone above Alpha will have to pay for updates.

    This guy provides a fair point.

    I don't think Beta players need worry.



    I don't really think Notch would allow a mod that just copied his update. Kind of stealing from him. Like a torrent but less serious.

    Notch shouldn't require anyone's permission to use the similar features of a mod. For all you know, Notch already thought about adding it way before the Aether even existed. The idea of sky islands is not a new thing.




    When people want him to use the exact features of the Aether? Notch may have thought of a Sky dimension before them but he did not think of one other thing in that mod.

    Thats what the guy i responded to said, he wanted to just completely add the Aether into MC, not just the Sky dimension part.

    The code freeze
    http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/723478-minecraft-code-freeze-in-effect/page__hl__beta release freeze


    For example, What is in the end right now which are Endermen and Dragons, that will be it, unless their are files i'm unaware of that just aren't in use but are in the code.

    um.. this doesn't mean that only people that bought Alpha get everything for free. It just means that notch can't charge them any money, not that they are the only ones that get things for free forever.



    Yes. The only thing anyone above Alpha gets is free are Bug fixes, which every company does so that doesn't really count.

    IMO Mojang should just incorporate the Aether mod into the vanilla game. They did it with pistons, not much harm in doing it for something a bit more extensive.



    I do believe the Piston Creator agreed to let Notch use it. Whereas the Aether guys probably haven't, or notch didn't ask.

    "I think everyone who bought the game before the release deserves what at one time was promised, which is free updates." - I have to ask you back this up.

    Source?



    I know that it was posted back on Notch's Tumblr when it was announced. I do not feel like going looking for it but it probably wouldn't be hard to find if you really need proof by searching the forum.

    Just to really repeat what everybody else said,

    I do believe they were added back in after being out of an earlier pre release. Just much much more rare now.

    Firstly, I am unaware. Granted, I don't follow things very much, but from what I have heard so far is that simply Alpha players get free upgrades; nothing about whether those afterward will have to pay or not, i.e. speculation.

    Secondly, Alpha players deserve that right, in my opinion. They were here from the beginning, so it seems fair enough that they get the privilege. It's like getting special stuff for pre-ordering games that I see advertised on ads.



    I think everyone who bought the game before the release deserves what at one time was promised, which is free updates. Yes Alpha did do a big part of the game, If Alpha had very little people Notch still could have gotten to Beta and released the game. I would call Alpha's success more of an inspiration. Notch noticed during Alpha that the success of this game would be big and he could make money off it after the release, which in my opinion is why it was changed

    I don't think updates and DLC are going to be the same thing, and I highly doubt that Mojang is going to pull a fast one on their nearly 4 million customers to squeeze out more money.



    They will, anyone who bought after Alpha will have to pay for all updates once the game is released.

    Code freeze = Feature freeze. Please don't get the two mixed up. A feature freeze means that Notch will no longer create NEW features, but instead finish existing features and any known bugs. He's using this feature freeze so that he actually finishes the game in time...



    Even then, the main idea i got from Notch's twitter was this was mainly for bug fixes and making the game bug less when it was released more then finishing unfinished work.

    I think a lot of people were so big on the Sky Dimension because they saw the Aether and thought "Wow this is what it's gonna be like when Mojang does it"

    So now that were not getting one their all sad.

    I think they should realize it wouldn't of been much different from the Main world, just in the Sky.

    Also people complain about how long it takes Notch to code stuff, if he had to waste all his time on something you could download with many more features, then people would complain that he is wasting time. Instead he scrapped it knowing that the Aether is the Sky Dimension with more features and uglier colors.

    *Before we start, lets have a rational discussion in the replies. I won't be trashing Notch in this so no trashing me or other people who reply.


    Okay, So we look at all these prereleases for 1.9. None of the add ins really seem finished yet and Notch has said on Twitter that their is now a Code freeze until the release. This means that anyone who bought after Alpha will get any more new updates for free.

    So did Notch add stuff in to make it look interesting, not finish them just so that they could Code Freeze, Release the game and make people have to keep buying the DLC he will be releasing when Mojang finishes up the rest of the stuff?
