On Minecraft Mod Support

The Word of Notch has word on this weekend's MineCon festivities, as well as a bit on Minecraft, including an apology for forgetting about mod support:

The last few weeks have been incredibly stressful and emotional in many ways, and I feel so relieved to finally have a finished version of Minecraft to release to the world on Friday. But that doesn’t mean we’ll stop working on Minecraft! We’ll keep adding to the game just as we have so far, and we have many exciting plans for the next year.. some of these will be announced fairly soon.

One thing that kind of fell between chairs is the mod support.. Sorry about that, I take full responsibility for letting that get forgotten about. But when it comes to the new launcher, it got folded into a new exciting project I won’t talk about yet.

Yet only Notch benefits financially... Go go shyster Notch!

He doesn't charge people for others work so your shyster troll is unsurprisingly invalid. People can charge whatever they want for their mod and distribute it however they please, the fact is that most mods aren't worth paying for which is why we see so few paid ones.

I'm not sure the message we want to send to companies (small or large) is that they are liable for collecting revenues on behalf of mod makers either. That will be a quick way to kill modding scenes for new games, what little we see these days. I'd rather be allowed to do it within the context of the license myself, I don't want a publisher/developer doing it for me.

Why is this a troll? He sold something that wasn't even a finished product and made millions off it. Now, what he considers a finished product (officially released), requires mods to be what it should have been.

It's not a troll. You're just upset that I disagree with your viewpoint.
