Minecraft Buries Super Duper Graphics Pack

The Minecraft Blog announces Mojang is ceasing development on the Super Duper Graphics Pack, a free visual upgrade for Minecraft they first promised during E3 2017 (thanks Ars Technica). Here's the post:

Some of you might remember us announcing the Super Duper Graphics Pack during E3 2017. Super Duper was an ambitious initiative that brought a new look to Minecraft but, unfortunately, the pack proved too technically demanding to implement as planned.

We realise this is disappointing to some of you – there was a lot of enthusiasm for Super Duper from inside and outside the studio – but unfortunately, we aren’t happy with how the pack performed across devices. For this reason, we're stopping development on the pack, and looking into other ways for you to experience Minecraft with a new look.

Minecraft is available on a wide range of platforms, and we’re constantly trying to make the most of the technical architecture of each one. We’ll be able to share more on that subject very soon.

Thanks for your patience, and sorry for not following through on our plans!

Wise decision. Space Engineers started out with a similar blocky, simple graphics style, and would run on just about any computer. Devs got cocky and decided to up the detail and now the game runs like a snail on even good systems and load times are out the window. A big FU to the many early supporters with average computers.

I don't understand why you can't keep compatibility between the old version and new version.
Windows. Case in point.

The land in Minecraft is flat, Minecraft simulates the Earth, ergo the Earth is flat.

Yeah, I'm sure those XBONEX owners are real happy about this "one version to rule them all" philosophy now. They have to miss out on new features because phones and tablets can't hack it.
