    Tired of microtransactions? Wanna install (better) mods, and any texture pack you please? Just play the Java edition.

      I left after the Java chat/sign/whatever filtering controversy. Never got into bedrock edition, so I never had to worry about it. Don’t know if they backed down on it, though.

      And the microtransactions are also absolutely abhorrent as well. Never felt with them, but I don’t know a single sane person who actually like them.

        Mojang is owned by Microsoft. Both versions of the game are developed by Mojang which is beholden to what Microsoft’s goals for the game are.

          I don’t like Microsoft but don’t think I can run away from Minecraft. Got a server with my friends and I really like the game. What would even touch it as a competitor or alternative?

            Minetest. The game is way more open and customisable, and you can add in whatever rulesets you like.

            Closest is Terraria. 2D, yes, but very expansive and tons of content

              Yeah, I’ve easily got 10x the time in Terraria vs MC.

              I wish the maps were bigger though.

    The Android version is on sale, too.

    $1.99 (excl. VAT) / 2.19€ (incl. VAT)

    Tap for spoiler

    It was 7.99€ before; don’t know about the US prices


    And there is also the free (as in beer and in freedom) VoxeLibre.

    It was formerly known as MineClone2 and runs on the also FOSS Minetest game engine.

      But can you join Minecraft servers with minetest? The community aspect is pretty important for lots of players.

            It’s a different game so if they ran that instead of Minecraft you would avoid the Micro$oft issues

            As a player you could suggest the migration and see how people react

              Oh that’s a totally different take then. Nobody is going to suggest to a MC community to uproot, install a new game and transplant there. That’s not a thing that ever goes well. Plus, it’s not about one community in particular, it’s about this whole ecosystem of independently owned and sometimes interconnected minecraft servers. As i said the social culture is very present in the way many people enjoy the game.

              Now if there was a mod for minetest that could spoof the MC protocol (it is openly documented on the internet) and allow me to join a MC server, i would definitely do it, especially if minetest is more lightweight / hackable.
