Every modder should get some money from donations if people decide to do so. However, saying you will not update your mod unless you get paid $400 is a bit crazy. You can say something about wanting donations but... Not updating your mod at all until you get money? That's just preposterous.
I think it's time to downgrade to minecraft versions that all ready have every working mod instead of feeding into the greed train. Won't be playing Minecraft any more much longer at this rate. Keep up the great community skills Mojang/Micro$oft.
You sold your souls because Notch is a scared child afraid of publicity. I guess you better join em too Dr. Z. and make out like a fat rat which could be your new animal addition.
Peace, I'm done with this trashy greedy game.
Not really sure if this is the death of Minecraft, as long as things like this don't continue to happen. People seem to say Microsoft will destroy the game but we can't say much about it until they start showing signs. Unless Microsoft decides they really want to milk the game even further we're okay. At least for now. I haven't been keeping up with vanilla Minecraft much lately so I apologize if this post is flawed.
