    I’d say it’s the fact that modders are able to fix the game that proves a point, but I’d rather say it’s the fact that modders fix the game SO SIGNIFICANTLY that proves a point. The fact that essentially all aspects of minecraft can be rewritten for efficiency just goes to show that Microsoft needs to divert focus for a bit.

      If a tiny team of people making a mod can do so much good then Microsoft is just being insanely stupid.

        Microsoft isn’t being stupid, given that they barely have to put effort into the game and billions will buy and play it.

          Microsoft is stupid to me in the same sense the way the US handles capitalism is. They could’ve stopped updating at 1.8 and people would still be playing it as much.

            Yeah, but it’d become a niche instead of the game that every kid plays. And, of course, updating lets them sell more stuff on their marketplace.

            Is bedrock even minecraft anymore? It seems a lot more like an EA remake.

              I’m pretty sure they’ve gone as far as giving Minecraft explicit lore, kind of defeating the whole point.

              Most of Bedrock is really locked down depending on what platform you use, on mobile custom modding becomes harder and harder. It’s really only the store that’s really viable to use.
