No, it only started getting fucked up when they added villagers

i keep thinking someone should make a mod that makes it harder for me to go into a village steal all the beds and bread and go away to look for a mountain in a matter of minutes
like a faction mod that adds different villages and pillagers and you can become hostile/friendly to them depending on your actions and stuff

It's even worse when you play on a tech-focused modpack like GTCE or Manufactio. In the latter you can even shit up your home chunk's air with pollutants and make it completely inhabitable until you craft a respirator and even then you'll have to manually refill it with spare filters or you'll die once the current one runs out.

Is say the real revolution starts at the first cobblestone generator
>mass produced picksxes >mass produced tools >massive surplus of building ingredients to build even bigger farms even outside of cobblestone

please it's a fucking video game it has no economics how can you seriously say it's imperialist holy shit. For fucks sake most of the game's economy is self refillable it's fucking communist if anything

relax it's just a thread talking about a kids game
if you are so passionate then please do explain how it's actually communist because that could be good for propagandizing the kids

I'm sorry it's just lately everything seems so surreal and all these opinions become something people hold unironically. internet ideology i suppose.
So minecraft's production has a ceiling, right? Unless after updates people find more efficient ways to produce something, like iron, gold, etc. it has a cap, and many players hit that cap some time in their playthrough. All products lose their value, iron becomes dirt cheap, gold too with pigman farms. Diamonds maybe, but they'll find ways to dupe them too. In any case, most of the game's resources are easy to get. Production in most serious playthroughs is as automated as it can get, so the game is in "the highest stage of communism" as some people would say. But regardless, for the highest stage of communism we have to ask about separation of labor? Nowhere. Class society history? Nowhere. It's a solitary game. Development of productive forces? Well there is progress in that but it's isolated from other characteristics of human society. Minecraft is a solitary game, you're a little master doing your little master stuff. There is nothing that matches human economics in it, if we tried simulating that most of minecraft would *poof* go away.

multiplayer servers with good minigames/RP and player base were where it was at, when i played it a lot in elementary school

No. If you don't deal with villagers then everything is fine because labor is entitled to all it creates

Minecraft is a chore simulator for people that can only draw stickfigures.
Anonymous 2021-12-19 (Sun) 10:45:01 No. 14389
>>14382 >first example
Symmetric circles and squares. An eight year old could have (and has) drawn that.
The same circle, but from the inside.
3d printer, no distinct features which are the hardest part of a human body, as I said, stick figure-tier.
>rows of the same color
Can be done in paint in literal seconds. Copy paste a single pixel times 1300.
These are just examples proving me right. And here I am just talking about pen and paper. None of that fancy computer assisted art competent adults are capable of. There's zero reason to play minecraft when you can load up mecabricks or any sufficient paint tool, but you don't because you can't actually draw anything beyond stickfigures.

Not a game

Also not games.

Imagine I cannot. Now show me your best then to prove that you can.

Yup, it takes a lot of time for modders to update their mods to new versions. Mekanism for example is still 1.16.5, and some large classic mods like Gregtech, ThaumCraft and Railcraft are forever stuck in 1.12.2 because migrating them would be a giant pain in the ass for the devs, as well as the fact that it will cause new bugs and exploits to crop up and they will have to spend another couple of years hunting them down to make the mod stable again.
Sabinyak 2022-01-15 (Sat) 03:49:36 No. 14863
according to a lot of those modders they just don't like the new minecrafts
is ok tho, Create already allows you to make way better trains.
but people tend to forget about ships
i really need my pirate ships :(
Anonymous 2022-01-15 (Sat) 04:50:02 No. 14864
but do you really NEED to do all that shit to survive or even beat the game? I've beaten the game without villager buiding farms, destroying land and generally being an asshole. nomadic playstyle is fun, you should try it.

bous points if you use mods that help you with that, satchels, chests that keep their content upon breaking or even things that allow you to quickly set bases up if you need them.
