    posted a message on Apple Rant*
    Quote from Nataru

    Well as far as I can see, and forgive me if its just my nostalgia talking, but I think you should only be able to get apples in vanilla minecraft the same old ways: Strongholds, dungeons (even though you can only find golden ones), and killing notch. Trees defeats the purpose of apples: to be rare and elusive.


    I don't think the purpose of apples was ever to be rare and elusive.

    Implying that since 1.6.6 is a long time.
    It isn't.


    Implying nothing, he stated a fact with a time reference. Regardless, time is relative.

    Get over yourself.

    Edit: I just noticed this was a case of thread necromancy :SSSS:

    Im using the term DLC to apply to more games, and to the fact its new content post release.


    Ah, well DLC doesn't really have a standard definition. To me, it implies optional content available for purchase, usually a significant addition. Continued updates/patches to MC will be free and likely include both bugfixes, feature enhancement and new content.

    How the hell does future DLC even justify releasing an unfinished game?


    Who said anything about DLC?

    Yes, if a game developer says the game will have this, you pay for it, and they don't do it, it's scamming.


    No, it isn't.


    My point is that the game is still on beta, but Notch is charging full price, and if you don't think this is wrong, why are you even replying?


    Because this is a discussion forum. I am discussing the topic at hand. If you don't like what I have to say or that I'm replying then that's your problem. The game is not still 'on' beta simply because it doesn't meet your personal vision of complete.

    Check the full price of these games. Especially Aquaria, wich is far more beautiful [The default textures are goddamm awlful] and better developed, and a lot bigger in development size. And is cheaper. Every single on of them is cheaper than minecraft.


    And I'll say it again: MC started out indie, it no longer even resembles that definition. Compared to other retail games with similar levels of popularity, MC is dirt cheap.

    Wow you just proved me that you don't understand the difference between a "Bug" and a "Unfinished Feature".

    A bug is a code error that allows something that should not happen, happen.

    A bug in skyrim: Ragdolls being too light.
    A bug in minecraft: Iten duplication, not intended.

    A unfinished feature is when you put something in the game, but it is not FINISHED. I'll explain it to you slowly.

    Notch said he would add a level-up system, where you should be able to choose upgrades with skill points you get for killing mobs, like better mining or something of the like [trying to find the tweet on this]. This was not implemented, but hey, we can level up, even though it does nothing, So I'ts cool right?

    Notch said we could copy maps and change zoom scales right before they where implemented. The game released and we can't.

    Nothing like this happened with skyrim.


    So what is your point exactly? I'll play along for a minute and assume for the sake of argument that MC is not 'finished'. Why is this is a problem?

    There are numerous examples of things Notch said he would like to add or how features should be implemented or expanded on in the future that ended up being different from the original vision. These statements or discussions he's tweeted and surely read feedback on are at the formative stages of a feature. They are not blueprints or promises. Reality and feasibility often get in the way implementation. Sounds to me like you're splitting hairs.

    Yeah, minecraft is cheap. Keep believing that.


    I will. Because it is. It is far cheaper than most games available. Sure, there are smaller indie games that are a fraction of the cost but MC is a fraction of the cost of numerous others. What next, you going to post a link to a free game?

    So many people take this game far too seriously. It is a very cheap, once indie game that doesn't require a subscription. I see so many people with the perspective that they are owed the world on a platter and if they don't get it then they'll leave. Good riddance. This isn't an MMO. Mojang owes you absolutely nothing, you already have what you paid for. Do us all a favor and ragequit.

    But, what is going to happen 2 months from now? Explosive chickens? As random as this game already is I think that mojang should stop with the random mobs.


    Considering spider jockeys have been around since alpha and charged creepers have been around for over 7 months, I'm not sure why you're concerned about what will happen 2 months from now.

    Umm... I have no idea, I wish it would.

    Notch should add that... oh wait, too late for that. :sad.gif:


    Not sure why its too late, 1.0 simply means the game has left beta and is now full release. It will still continue to be updated and patched.

    Then tell me.

    Is it better to play the game... for the game , or just play the game because of the mods?


    That depends entirely on what one enjoys the most. It's pretty simple.
    Quote from Arcebus Magister

    I never said that mods wouldn't extend the gameplay of a game, my critic is for buying games just for its mods.


    And that was never even on the table in this thread until you mentioned it. Nobody is doing that.
