    I'm not taking you on personally, Newt. So no conflict here. :)

    MC started as a building game, for the simple sake of creating something of your own design.
    To create a world of many of your designs.

    The survival mode added a level of danger and challenge, but what is the point of survival?
    In this game, since there are no end goals, it's obviosuly so that you can continue building.
    So when all is said and done, this is at heart, a building game.

    I have no problem with the people who like the survival mode and the challenges it presents, it is just IMO that a game that would challenge their building skills more than their survival skills would be a better fit for the ongoing direction of the game.

    I guess I look at it from the standpoint of a game like SimCity where the challenge was to build well and manage the building as opposed to protecting your personal self from from random spawning creatures.

    There is nothing wrong with the way the game seems to be evolving, and there are millions who like it, I am just not sure that it is the kind of game I prefer. I wonder sometimes if Notch will try to please everyone and in the end, please no one.

    As I stated up front, just my humble opinoin.

    If a stats and PvP system is impemented I can see this turning into runescape with 10-12 year old kids bragging they have more exp/levels then everyone else. This was a building game, why do they have to go and change it?

    And Kreij I can /agree with you

    The building part of the game was left when survival mode was started on. Yes, there is no real goal yet, but that is why the game is still be developed and new content is being added. The new content and developement that you don't like are leading to the goal that was set out when the old creative mode was abandoned for the new survival mode. The goal is not to build anymore, but the real goal is still being developed.

    is this game going to turn into one of those games where people brag about how much virtual items they have acquired? or will it remain a basic building block game?

    People who brag are going to brag about any and everything. The context doesn't matter.

    Considering the stats and achievements can easily be gotten by cheating, and Notch doesn't really seem that keen to change that, I don't see that happening. I think the stats and achievements are more for your own personal amusement, not so much about bragging(though it will be possible to brag I guess).

    No, because the players inventory is stored on the server, not locally. But admins/ops can spawn any item they want in multiplayer.

    Not too much difference from last one (on the surface). A few more roads and the temple change.

    Time to make more roads out of the center with more buildings

    Well, there's that huge glass window we're digging and the high dive but neither were meant to look awesome on the render.


    It's way outside the safe area so go for it.
