I personally don't see a reason for playing singleplayer. You can't use those worlds in multiplayer, and all your creations would be simple yours - you would have no-one else except you seeing them. Multiplayer adds a feeling of tribal survival at the beginning, and then later on forms into kind of a communistic community.

That is, assuming you are playing with good folk who are old enough. I usually play with people in their late 20s.

The server can be set to accept cracked accounts. Most of the players on our current server are running cracked accounts. The idea is that you will eventually buy the game to support Notch if you can. Having a legit account (like me and a few others on our server) means you can change skins where the cracked players have to settle with the default skin.

Lukipela, this video will give you an idea of gameplay in singleplayer survival mode:


*Keep in mind that this vid is a bit dated and 1.8 is supposed to have new mobs and npc villages.

The Minecraft wiki helped me out when I was a nubzorz, so I recommend checking that out too if you have any questions about particular blocks, enemies, items etc. Also has a great list on all of the craftable items and how to make them.

It kinda' pains me to say that I'm currently running a cracked account, mostly because it doesn't feel like there is much dignity to pirating an indie game. But hey, shareware rules apply here? Not sure how my Minecraft works in multiplayer, since the only server I've played on was using Hamachi.

You can quite easily set up singleplayer worlds for multiplayer use, it's just that you have to host the server yourself. Incidentally, that can be used to cheat (use the server console commands to give yourself items and blocks).

Jesus, just buy the fucking game. It's cheap. It's not like Notch is Microsoft or EA or some evil corporation like that.

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I've never played Minecraft. It's something I'll probably try long after its been officially released and its price has dropped.

Heh, thats a bit more brash than I would have put it but I certainly understand and agree. That said I'm also empathetic to the poor college student that would buy the game if they could. Or sombody that wants to try it first before buying. It would have to be a community decision wether or not to allow cracked accounts if and when we get the SC server going.

The game cost me around 22$ U.S. with tax. If you're lucky, you might get dinner for one at a decent resturaunt for that amount.

The Humble Indie Bunldle 3, which is pay-what-you-want (yes, you can buy it for 1 cent) contains a Minecraft promo code that gives you access to the game until the 14th of August.

Er, Shiver... Minecraft costs less *now* than it will when it's been officially released. It actually would have cost even less if you'd bought during Alpha.

Interesting. For someone like me, who could put in an hour or so a weekend and maybe 15 minutes every other day, is cooperative useful? I don't want to be a drag on the community either.
