There's a 500 MB Limit for uploads to Realms? There have been several times now where I have been frustrated by how many things about realms like limits etc are not written anywhere, at least not when I looked, despite the fact that it is supposed to be a professional service that we are paying for every month. If there are limits of any kind they need to be clearly listed in the service description, whatever they are. Like the original limits in the number of times you could download your world. There were none listed anywhere and yet they did exist, I have the screen shot to prove it. That may have changed since then just like the download method has, due to my interactions with the support team early on.
Apparently so. I couldn't add my 1+ GB edited world with Mojang support also saying my "world was too big" which I I found stupid. For an official service that they want upped as a "basic" and official service I found that limit to be too small, too limiting, and too stupid. 2 or 5 GB would be fair. Having an upload limit at 500 mb and an option for it just defeats the purpose of having one.
I also agree that I haven't seen any limits of ANY sort written on their Realms page, though bits and pieces may be found on Wiki and the forums. You have to search for them if you want to know them. I was also annoyed when I heard that there was a download limit, but I guess that can be officially justified by bandwidth abuse they've mentioned loosely. I agree that everything about Realms needs to be clearly listed, just like how 1.8 needs a bug fix.
When I asked when they will up the limit or if they'll fix stuff has gone unanswered, probably for obvious reasons I'm not aware of. Minecraft has become a negative experience this August onwards for me that I'm not sure what to do with it anymore. My buddies also on the fence, or even striking from my suggestions and frustrations as well that Minecraft is not a fun game anymore. It's become a guilty pleasure and a negative experience I want to play it, it just doesn't want to be played.
