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.

Why is this a troll? He sold something that wasn't even a finished product and made millions off it.

There isn't anything wrong with that, he was fully up front with what people were buying and has always offered a free version that functions as a demo. People were able to enjoy it and use the product regardless of its version number.

Now, what he considers a finished product (officially released), requires mods to be what it should have been.

That's just your opinion and you don't speak for anyone else. I played Minecraft without mods and fully enjoyed the experience. He's adding mod framework because people want to customize their experience with the game, not because the game is fatally flawed without it. That's part of what makes Minecraft so powerful that you don't seem to understand, it's many different things to many people despite being one core product. Many people choose to extend the replay value of the game with mods and that's their right, he is under no obligation to compensate people based on what people do with his game though.

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

No, it's a troll. The language you used and the inability to see or consider another view point are what clearly labels it a troll. Not to mention it was downright stupid, as if he should be liable to somehow distribute money to others based on random people doing things to his game that he probably doesn't even have knowledge of.
