Hi everyone,

It’s been a few days now from Mincrosoft buying Minecraft – maybe a good time to touch base and give some personal thoughts on the matter.

Selling Mojang makes painful sense. Notch communication about it was a bit awkward – but Notch communication has always been awkward about pretty much anything. Beyond that, it’s nothing else than business as usual. For the players, it means that there may be more things happening around Minecraft license, which could be very good news or very bad news. But at least that’s something.

Of course, there’s the issue of getting a nice indie project becoming property of a large group that does nothing but squeezing money for shareholders. But that’s the world we live in, not much we can do about it. If you want to support a nice indie developer, you can always check out this page ;-).

With regards to modding, the situation may evolve in different ways depending on Mincrosoft decisions, as well as modding community reaction to these decisions. As far as I’m concerned, the fundamentals needed for me to carry on modding are still there. I am keeping my commitment to BuildCraft.

Progress is going to be slower in the coming weeks though. As for most of us, modding is a side activity for me and the fall is a very busy time in my regular job. This explains recent decrease of videos and releases, which hopefully should be only a temporary problem.

Any help and support during that period of time is really appreciated :-)

Cheers,

SpaceToad
