New Minecraft EULA Exceptions Created To Clarify The Monetization
The fact that Minecraft users have the ability to run their own servers has always been a double-edged sword - a small, low-res sword, however, one that is sharp on both sides nonetheless. Players can do pretty much whatever they would like on these servers which is fantastic, however they can also violate the terms of the game's EULA and this can land developer Mojang in trouble.
"Some privately run Minecraft servers charge in-game items like extra xp, or access to certain game modes. Some of them even charge quite a bit," Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson wrote in an article on his blog yesterday. Minecraft server list "I don't know how many emails I've received from parents asking for their 100 dollars back from the money their child has spent on an item package on a server that we don’t control."
To help protect from any future accusations, Mojang has created new rules regarding monetization. Mojang has provided the rules on its website, but it's essentially fewer restrictions on the creation of game-related items or other products that are monetized. Minecraft server list Make sure you communicate with your customers that Mojang is not involved in the sale of items that impact on gameplay, and that you do not charge real money for the in-game currency.
Oh, and one final thing, a direct message from Persson: "Herobrine is not real, please stop asking." [Image: Mojang]
