I reinstalled Minecraft yesterday and hopped into my minecart system, only to learn that minecart boosters have been fixed. Boat elevators have been fixed too. A lot of the fun of Minecraft was exploiting cool, if buggy, Physics mechanics. I no longer have any interest in spending ages mining materials in order to build cool stuff if this element is removed, so I’ve decided that I’m going to play with mods that give you unlimited items and just try to build interesting things. I might even install a mod to replace boosters.

The upcoming creative mode is not quite what I want as I would still like monsters and the possibility of dying, but I’m not interested in spending hours strip mining just so that I can build things.

So normal Minecraft has become boring for me, but I’m still interested in sandboxing.
