    Because everybody has to work on any project they start forever. I'm sure Bill Gates personally writes code for each and every new version of Windows.

    So what are you people suggesting? That if you're a girl you either have to hide your gender or you just can't do things that are considered atypical for women?


    No - what is being implied is that people aren't interested in women who do atypically girly things unless they fit a narrowly defined gender stereotype like Minecraft Chick.

    Reminds me of the year I went to a music industry showcase and saw a booth selling guitars made "especially for girls." They were pink, many had butterfly stickers on the pickguards. I couldn't help but feel like some girls might look at those guitars and think they were being talked down to.

    I imagine a lot of girls look at the gender roles available for them in gaming culture and feel the same way.

    The pre-releases are intended to test changes that will be part of the final version.

    If you don't like testing things, you definitely shouldn't install clearly labeled experimental updates.

    Passionate communities build up around artists with integrity and unique visions, not around design-by-committee projects that try to cater to everyone. Notch is not your *****.

    Now the houses, libraries, even the blacksmith all seem like they were shooting for the least amount of effort and called it good.


    I just assumed they didn't want villages to be these huge, impressive cities littering the landscape -- and that they wanted the feel of minecraft over-world to remain wild and unexplored.

    I mean, it would sorta make building fortresses and castles and manors feel empty if the world was already full of awesome, complex structures.

    The point is you act like Mojang is special for allowing modders into their game when in fact it's pretty much expected.


    Whatev. Enjoy your little quibble. The spirit of my reply remains the same.

    Congrats to Mojang for the pop-culture cred.

    But sheesh. Is that show always so painfully unfunny?

    Tale of Kingdoms looks like fun - but its a totally different thing than vanilla Minecraft. I'd hate to see something so far-reaching and specific added to the game.

    And it's a lot easier for mod developers to pile on the content since the hardest part -- developing a working game itself -- has already been done for them by the people at Mojang ... who are kind enough to open their hard work up to modders.

    It used to be about exploring the land, and making creations so amazing, it would make people stop in their tracks.


    ?

    It is still about all of those things.

    Did I miss the update that made it so you can no longer explore the land and make amazing creations?
