I'll admit MC's mod community is the only one i've actually seen myself which is just about completely mental. There's a whole debacle about Adfly as well - basically a link/hosting thing which shows ads to anyone clicking them, the host of which earns say $0.004 per click. It isn't that bad an idea at heart, but the problem is adfly doesn't check or vet their ads at all meaning there's malware-riddled banners being shown to users, which then messes up their computers.
Bring this up with the people making their mods accessible only via adfly and they pitch a huge fit about you "trying to steal free mods" and going nuts that you're trying to rob them of the compensation they deserve for modding. I don't think i've ever seen a mod community before which actively thinks its entitled to something for carrying out a hobby.

So.. messing about with taller maps. At long last. Some floating islands up there, even higher up than the mountain.
There's also some kind of mysterious bar. Looks to be experience though it could also be stamina, since there was word of sprinting being added.

The usual spot for armor is now a bunch of meat hock looking things. Looks like we're looking at a hunger meter, possibly only for health regen though. I swear I've heard this already...

But yeah, pretty cool. I like that he's experimenting, and I look forward to more.

I still believe that the hotbar should simply be a hotbar, not an extra inventory row. >.>
And the crafting system is still unintuitive jank.

Big news heah. Big news!

“I’m a big roguelike fan,” explains Notch. “It’s really fun. The idea is that you level up really, really fast. You can grind away and level up fast if you want to, or you can just play as normal and level up that way. The longer you play, the bigger the risk of dying becomes. It’s the part that really works. If it feels like it’s too harsh, we might make it half or something like that. But the fact that you lose everything – you lose all your inventory anyways.”

I'm more interesting in the BIG FREAKING SPIRE

I actually made a design not long ago for a manor on a big spire, not expecting Minecraft worlds to be big enough for it. This makes me happy!

According to his Twitter, he's keeping it at 128 for design reasons. Trying it at 512 was just an experiment.

Booooooooo.

Oh well.

Hey, I took a peek over at Minecraft forums. The announcement regarding experience has been met with a ton of bitching and whining!
Who would have thought?

He should have put the announcement through adfly. You know, talk in their language.
At any rate I reserve judgement until we know what experience is for. If it's purely improvement upon the base abilities as we have them now, i'm cool with it. If we get nerfed and have to regain what we could previously do without issue, that's where I would take exception.

EDIT:
Oh yeah speaking of adfly, this widget should come in handy if you encounter it. No malware or wasted time for you, no filthy lucre for them.

The only problem with adfly is if you are dumb enough to click the ad and not wait for skip.


Anyhow, HOLY CRAP ON A CRUTCH
