    Very much. I got very bored with single player in 3 days after I built everything + underground rollercoaster. Unfortunately there's a limit to how fast it can go.

    :hehe:

    I don't have a problem with anything, I just think it's funny how being a small (fine, one man) company makes you immune to greed in the eyes of some people. And I'm certainly not holding Activision in any kind of golden light here, just makin an observation.

    @SMC I don't for a second think he should lower the price, that would indeed be bad business. But I do remember reading all kinds of fuss over Betas and the possibility of paying for them happening in here not so long ago, and this is an Alpha...?



    :D

    It's not like you're paying for a demo though, as with these pay for beta things. You're getting the full game as it stands at any one time.

    Anyway you aren't really giving notch money, you're giving it to Paypal. Last I heard Paypal was locking his funds. I admit I'm not incentivising this much.

    That was all sorted a while back, he got such a huge spike in sales Paypal freaked and auto-suspended the account. After talking to them and passing over some documents, it's unlocked again bar a 5% of funds temporary held as a deposit for a few weeks if i remember rightly.

    In short, this issue is sorted :)

    Yeah I read that, I guess $300,000 in small amounts in the course of a single day might look slightly suspicious :hehe:

    Anywho, fair play to the guy, he made good. The only point I'm trying to make is; replace Minecraft with Modern Warfare 3 or some such and this discussion would be going in a very different direction.

    May or may not have been mentioned already, Multiplay's servers are going through final tests and should be live soon, no idea on pricing but I imagine the quality of service will follow with their other game servers.

    Shame, Minecraft just isn't for me.

    So I just watched all of coestar's Minecraft videos. 14 of them (so far). I am mentally pacing the room, waiting for episode 15. This is ridiculous.

    Yes.

    After reading the Minecraft site, Steam forum mentions and this thread, I would like to check it out.

    I would like to see a massive gfx overhaul at some point. Maybe Valve will sort that out?

    There is a high(er) res texture pack. Some people prefer it, I for one like the original textures for some reason.

    Ok, I bought it. My first world sucks, so far, it's all desert-islands, cactuses, trees on islands that I didn't spawn on, and only one decent rock formation so far. It's going to be a hell of a job to build a bridge or 3 between islands :eek:
