    Here's a bit of info on it... I had no idea they were about to go Beta!

    Protip... the price is going up, and he's changing the part about all future versions being free... but only for those that buy after the Beta, ie, Dec 20th. So, if you actually like this game and are on the fence about buying it, now is the time. You've got 4 days left... for 10 euro, you'll get the full game and all future versions and updates. After that, 15 euro and you get the beta only.

    I'm also curious if our current levels will carry or not... he did warn of the possibility that they wouldn't, saying "don't get too attached to them". Guess we'll see!

    I love this game. I haven't turned my TV on in two weeks thanks to it, lol. I setup a server for me and my friends to play on. If anyone wants to visit, feel free. Addy is mc.nischan.com:8000 for the regular world (where users are allowed to /give items), and port 8001 for the one I just created today (no cheats allowed). Info is at http://minecraft.nischan.com (maps and such).

    We just had to fix a big problem today. Yesterday some f' wit hit a pole and took out my power and internet. Minecraft really does not like being shut down abruptly. Where the view from our spawn tower used to look like this:



    ...it became this suddenly:



    It created random chunks of land at various spots on the map

    Thank God for MCedit.

    From the horse's mouth:

    "We will also change the license to remove the line that promises all future versions of the game for free. Please note that this change only affects people who buy the game after December 20"

    It's pretty clear that you won't be getting them for free.... unless you buy it before the 20th.

    ^Smokey wouldn't like to see this...

    I may have done the same thing trying to build my new house....

    Anyone else have Minecraft lock up on them?

    I just was in the middle of a 3 hour build and then it crashed. I haven't saved in hours.

    You are a man in this "world", you build shit. Then end.

    But really youtube minecraft day 1 and it will show you how to start building a home and such.

    Harvest Moon was the shit. If this is anything like that I might like it.

    Just looked up the game. Looks awesome.

    It is very interesting. Very cool that one guy made it and I have spent more time on this than I have games with huge studios behind them.

    Every once in a while, I kind of have a fuck this, this is stupid, there is no point to this game moment and quit. But I am always playing again within a couple of days.

    I'm thinking in about 10 years when computers can easily handle this game, it will be one of the most popular games in the world.

    That's what I mean When the graphics for this game get a lot better and it's more "refined" and there's way more stuff you can do, you will need a good computer to run it.

    Either you have a decent box or you are not very prone to notice lag heh. Even with the crappy graphics most of the boxes at my office have trouble with it on the best settings. I've never worked with Java but the programmers I know say it's bloated and slow; that may be why it has issues even with such rudimentary graphics. My workstation at work isn't horrible; 3.4ghz with 2GB RAM and 512MB PCI video card and the only way I can get a totally smooth lag free experience is by setting it to "tiny" view distance. Of course, I'm very sensitive to lag so it may just be me.

    Are you talking about on Twitter when he said Beta (after 12/20) users will get the full version of the game for free?

    Because "future updates" includes expansions and such after release, which Alpha users will get but Beta users will not.

    Though such expansions are really just a possibility, and not really planned yet. It may turn out that the final version of the game is it and Alpha users don't end up with anything extra for free.

    But the language of the agreement is still changing anyway.

    I want to buy this game but I will never buy anything over the internet with a credit card. Is there any other way to get it?

    Using a CC on the internet (reputable site) is very safe.

    If they bill you more you can just dispute it and it's very easily taken care of.

    I refuse to use any other form of payment on the net.

    Just make sure you don't shop on over an unsecure network (hotel, airport, starbucks etc) where you have no idea who's possibly sniffing network packets.

    Paypal

    I don't have any accounts linked to mine and it worked fine.

    I guess Paypal is the way. It's going to take probably 2 weeks though for it all to go through using Paypal because I have to put money in first, then it has to take 2-4 more days for it to go through, and blah blah. I hate buying shit over the internet...

    You'd be surprised how taxing this game can really be... my main rig can run it fine, but my "gaming laptop", which runs MW2 without a hiccup actually struggles hard with Minecraft. I have to set the fog to the second lowest in order to even play it.

    There's a lot of geometry to calculate, so you need a semi-competent GPU to play this game smoothly.
