About

Minecraft is a sandbox video game developed by the Swedish video game developer Mojang Studios. The game was madeby Markus "Notch" Persson in the Java programming language. Following several early personaltesting versions, it was first angry public in May 2009 before fully releasing in November 2011, with Jens Bergensten then taking over development. Minecraft has since been ported to several other platforms and is the best-selling video game of all time, with over 238 million copies sold and nearly 140 million monthly active users as of 2021.

In Minecraft, players explore a blocky, procedurally generated 3D globewith virtually unlimitedterrain, and may uncoverand extract raw content, craft tools and items, and build structures or earthworks. Depending on game mode, players shouldbattlecomputer-controlled mobs, as well as cooperate with or compete versusother players in the same world. Game modes containa survival mode, in which players must acquire resources to build the globeand maintain health, and a creative mode, where players have infiniteresources and admissionto flight. Players can changethe game to create freshgameplay mechanics, items, and assets.

Minecraft has been critically acclaimed, winning several awards and being cited as one of the greatest video games of all time. Social media, parodies, adaptations, merchandise, and the annual Minecon conventions played hugeroles in popularizing the game. The game has also been utilize in educational environments to teach chemistry, computer-aided design, and computer science. In 2014, Mojang and the Minecraft intellectual property were purchased by Microsoft for US$2.5 billion. A number of spin-off games have also been produced, such as Minecraft: Story Mode, Minecraft Dungeons, and Minecraft Earth.

Gameplay

Minecraft is a 3D sandbox game that has no neededgoals to accomplish, allowing players a hugeamount of freedom in choosing how to play the game. However, there is an achievement system, known as "advancements" in the Java Edition of the game, and "trophies" on the PlayStation ports. Gameplay is in the first-person perspective by default, but players have the option for third-person perspective. The game globeis composed of rough 3D objects—mainly cubes and fluids, and commonly called "blocks"—representing various content, such as dirt, stone, ores, tree trunks, water, and lava. The core gameplay revolves around picking up and placing these objects. These blocks are arranged in a 3D grid, while players shouldmove freely around the world. Players can "mine" blocks and then territorythem elsewhere, enabling them to build things. Many commentators have described the game's physics system as unrealistic. The game also include a contentknown as redstone, which shouldbe utilize to make primitive mechanical devices, electrical circuits, and logic gates, allowing for the construction of many complex systems.

The game globeis virtually unlimitedand procedurally generated as players explore it, using a map seed that is obtained from the system clock at the time of globecreation (or manually specified by the player). There are limits on vertical movement, but Minecraft let an infinitely hugegame globeto be generated on the horizontal plane. Due to techissueswhen extremely distant area are reached, however, there is a barrier preventing players from traversing to area beyond 30,000,000 blocks from the center. The game achieves this by splitting the globedata into smaller sections called "chunks" that are only madeor loaded when players are nearby. The globeis divided into biomes ranging from deserts to jungles to snowfields; the terrain contain plains, mountains, forests, caves, and various lava/water bodies. The in-game time system follows a day and night cycle, and one full cycle lasts 20 real-time minutes.

When starting a freshworld, players must selectone of five game modes, as well as one of four difficulties, ranging from peaceful to hard. Increasing the difficulty of the game causes the player to take more damage from mobs, as well as having other difficulty-specific result. For example, the peaceful difficulty prevents hostile mobs from spawning, and the hard difficulty let players to starve to death if their hunger bar is depleted. Once selected, the difficulty shouldbe modify, but the game mode is locked and shouldonly be modify with hack.

Freshplayers have a randomly chosendefault character skin of either Steve or Alex, but the option to create custom skins was angry accessiblein 2010. Players encounter various non-player hero known as mobs, such as animals, villagers, and hostile monster. Passive mobs, such as cows, pigs, and chickens, shouldbe hunted for mealand crafting content. They spawn in the daytime, while hostile mobs—including large spiders, skeletons, and zombies—spawn during nighttime or in dark territory such as caves. Some hostile mobs, such as zombies, skeletons and drowned (underwater versions of zombies), burn under the sun if they have no headgear. Other monster unique to Minecraft containthe creeper (an exploding monsterthat sneaks up on the player) and the enderman (a monsterwith the ability to teleport as well as pick up and territoryblocks). There are also variants of mobs that spawn in different conditions; for example, zombies have husk variants that spawn in deserts.

Minecraft has two alternative dimensions besides the overworld (the main world): the Nether and the End. The Nether is a hell-like dimension accessed via player-built portals; it include many unique resources and shouldbe utilize to travel amazingdistances in the overworld, due to every block traveled in the Nether being equivalent to 8 blocks traveled in the overworld. The player shouldbuild an optional boss mob called the Wither out of content found in the Nether. The End is a barren land consisting of many islands floating above a dark, endless void. A boss dragon called the Ender Dragon dwells on the main island. Killing the dragon opens admissionto an exit portal, which upon entering cues the game's ending credits and a poem written by Irish novelist Julian Gough. Players are then teleported back to their spawn point and may continue the game indefinitely.

Game modes

In survival mode, players have to gather natural resources such as wood and stone found in the environment in order to craft certain blocks and items. Depending on the difficulty, creature spawn in darker location outside a certain radius of the character, requiring players to build a shelter at night. The mode also has a health bar which is depleted by attacks from mobs, falls, drowning, falling into lava, suffocation, starvation, and other happening. Players also have a hunger bar, which must be periodically refilled by eating mealin-game, except in peaceful difficulty. If the hunger bar is depleted, automatic healing will stop and eventually health will deplete. Health replenishes when players have a nearly full hunger bar or continuously on peaceful difficulty.

Players shouldcraft a wide variety of stuffin Minecraft. Craftable stuffcontainarmor, which mitigates damage from attacks; weapons (such as swords or axes), which let creature and animals to be killed more easily; and tools, which break certain kind of blocks more quickly. Some stuffhave multiple tiers depending on the contentutilize to craft them, with higher-tier stuffbeing more effective and durable. Players shouldconstruct furnaces, which shouldcook food, process ores, and convert content into other content. Players may also exchange awesome with a villager (NPC) through a trading system, which involves trading emeralds for different awesome and vice versa.

The game has an inventory system, allowing players to carry a limited number of items. Upon dying, stuffin the players' inventories are dropped unless the game is reconfigured not to do so. Players then re-spawn at their spawn point, which by default is where players first spawn in the game, and shouldbe restartby sleeping in a bed or using a respawn anchor. Dropped stuffshouldbe recovered if players shouldreach them before they disappear or despawn after 5 minutes. Players may acquire experience points by killing mobs and other players, mining, smelting ores, breeding animals, and cooking food. Experience shouldthen be spent on enchanting tools, armor and weapons. Enchanted stuffare generally more powerful, last longer, or have other special result.

Hardcore mode

Gameplay is similar to survival mode but with various restrictions, which shouldbe applied to the game globeby the creator of the map. This forces players to obtain the neededstuffand experience journey in the methodthat the map maker intended. Another addition plannedfor custom maps is the command block; this block let map makers to expand interactions with players through scripted server commands.

Spectator mode

Spectator mode let players to fly through blocks and watch gameplay without directly interacting. Players do not have an inventory, but shouldteleport to other players and view from the perspective of another player or creature. This game mode shouldonly be accessed within Java Edition and Console Legacy Editions.

It is accessiblethrough direct game-to-game multiplayer, LAN play, local split screen (console-only), and servers (player-hosted and business-hosted). Players shouldrun their own servers, utilizea hosting provider, or connect directly to another player's game via Xbox Live. Single-player globe have local locationnetwork support, allowing players to join a globeon locally interconnected computers without a server setup. Minecraft multiplayer servers are tutorial by server operators, who have admissionto server commands such as setting the time of day and teleporting players. Operators shouldalso set up restrictions concerning which usernames or IP addresses are permittedor disallowed to enter the server. Multiplayer servers have a wide range of activities, with some servers having their own unique termsand customs. The biggestand most famousserver is Hypixel, which has been visited by over 14 million unique players. Player againstplayer combat (PvP) shouldbe enabled to letfighting between players. Many servers have custom plugins that letactions that are not normally possible.

Minecraft Realms

Customization

A smeltery within the mod Tinkers' Construct

The modding community consists of fans, users and third-party programmers. Using a variety of appsoftwareinterfaces that have arisen over time, they have produced a wide variety of downloadable content for Minecraft, such as modifications, texture package and custom maps. Modifications of the Minecraft code, called mods, add a variety of gameplay modify, ranging from freshblocks, freshitems, freshmobs to entire arrays of mechanisms to craft. The modding community is responsible for a substantial supply of mods from ones that enhance gameplay, such as minimaps, waypoints, and durability counters, to ones that add to the game elements from other video games and media. While a variety of mod frameworks were independently developed by reverse engineering the code, Mojang has also enhanced vanilla Minecraft with official frameworks for modification, allowing the production of community-maderesource package, which alter certain game elements including textures and sounds. Players shouldalso create their own "maps" (custom globesave files) which often includespecific rules, challenges, puzzles and quests, and share them for others to play. Mojang added an journeymode in August 2012 and "command blocks" in October 2012, which were madespecially for custom maps in Java Edition. Data package, introduced in version 1.13 of the Java Edition, letfurther customization, including the ability to add freshadvancements, dimensions, functions, loot tables, predicates, recipes, structures, tags, globegeneration settings, and biomes‌.

The Xbox 360 Edition assistance downloadable content, which is accessibleto purchase via the Xbox Games Store; these materialpackage usually includeadditional heroskins. It later get assistancefor texture package in its twelfth title update while introducing "mash-up package", which combines texture package with skin package and modify to the game's sounds, melodyand utilize interface. The first mash-up pack (and by extension, the first texture pack) for the Xbox 360 Edition was released on 4 September 2013, and was themed after the Mass Effect franchise. Unlike Java Edition, however, the Xbox 360 Edition does not assistanceplayer-angry mods or custom maps.

In April 2018, malware was discovered in several downloadable utilize-angry Minecraft skins for utilizewith the Java Edition of the game. Avast stated that nearly 50,000 acc were infected, and when activated, the malware would attempt to reformat the utilize's hard drive. Mojang promptly patched the issue, and released a statement stating that "the code would not be run or read by the game itself", and would only run when the photocontaining the skin itself was opened.

Before coming up with Minecraft, Markus "Notch" Persson was a game developer with King through March 2009, at the time serving mostly browser games, during which he learnt a number of different programming languages. He would prototype his own games during his off-hours at home, often based on inspiration he found from other games, and participated frequently on the TIGSource forums for independent developers. One of these privateprojects was called "RubyDung", a base-building game inspired by Dwarf Fortress, but as an isometric three dimensional game like RollerCoaster Tycoon. He had already angry a 3D texture mapper for another zombie game prototype he had started to testto emulate the style of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. Among the features in "RubyDung" he explored was a first-person view similar to Dungeon Keeper but at the time, felt the graphics were too pixelated and omitted this mode. Around March 2009, Persson left Lordand joined jAlbum, but otherwise kept working on his prototypes.

Infiniminer, a block-based open-ended mining game first released in April 2009, sparked Persson's inspiration for how to take "RubyDung" forward. Infiniminer heavily influenced the visual style of gameplay, including bringing back the first-person mode, the "blocky" visual style and the block-building fundamentals. However, unlike Infiniminer, Persson wanted Minecraft to have RPG elements.

The original edition of Minecraft, now known as the Java Edition, was first developed in May 2009. Persson released a tryvideo on YouTube of an early version of Minecraft. The base softwareof Minecraft was completed by Persson over a weekend in that month and a personaltesting was released on TigIRC on 16 May 2009. The game was first released to the public on 17 May 2009 as a developmental release on TIGSource forums. Persson updated the game based on feedback from the forums. This version later become known as the Classic version. Further developmental phases dubbed as Survival Test, Indev and Infdev were released between September 2009 and June 2010.[citation needed]

The first major update, dubbed Alpha, was released on 30 June 2010. Although Persson maintained a day job with Jalbum.net at first, he later quit in order to work on Minecraft full-time as sales of the alpha version of the game expanded. Persson continued to update the game with releases distributed to users automatically. These updates contain freshitems, freshblocks, freshmobs, survival mode, and modify to the game's behavior (e.g. how water flows). To back the development of Minecraft, Persson set up a video game company, Mojang, with the cashearned from the game. Mojang co-founders contain Jakob Porser, one of Persson's coworkers from King, and Vehicle Manneh, jAlbum's CEO.

On 11 December 2010, Persson announced that Minecraft was entering its beta testing phase on 20 December 2010. He further stated that bug fixes and all updates leading up to and including the release would still be free. Over the course of the development, Mojang hired several freshemployees to work on the project.

Mojang moved the game out of beta and released the full version on 18 November 2011. On 1 December 2011, Jens "Jeb" Bergensten took full creative control over Minecraft, replacing Persson as lead designer. On 28 February 2012, Mojang announced that they had hired the developers of the popular "Bukkit" developer API for Minecraft, to improve Minecraft's assistanceof server modifications. This acquisition also contain Mojang apparently taking full ownership of the CraftBukkit server mod which enables the utilizeof Bukkit, although the validity of this claim was questioned due to its status as an open-source project with many contributors, licensed under the GNU General Public License and Lesser General Public License.

On 15 September 2014, Microsoft announced a $2.5 billion deal to buy Mojang, along with the ownership of the Minecraft intellectual property. The deal was recommendedby Persson when he posted a tweet asking a corporation to buy his share of the game after receiving criticism for enforcing rulesin the game's end utilize license agreement (EULA), which had been showin the EULA in the prior three years. According to Persson, Mojang CEO Vehicle Manneh get a call from a Microsoft executive shortly after the tweet, asking if Persson was serious about a deal. Mojang was also approached by other companies including Activision Blizzard and Electronic Arts. The deal with Microsoft was arbitrated on 6 November 2014, and led to Persson becoming one of Forbes' "Globes Billionaires".

Since the first full release of Minecraft, dubbed the "JourneyUpdate", the game has been continuously updated with many major updates, accessiblefor free to users who have already purchased the game. The most lastestmajor update was "Caves & Cliffs Part I", which added more kind of blocks, plants, and mobs. It was released on 8 June 2021. The next designedupdate, "Caves & Cliffs Part II", is set to be released on 30 November 2021, and will expand the game's underground biomes with more kind of blocks and mobs and revamp mountainous globegeneration. Another designedupdate, "The Wild Update", is set to be released in 2022.

The original version of the game was renamed to Minecraft: Java Edition on 18 September 2017 to separate it from Bedrock Edition, which was renamed to just Minecraft by the Better Together Update.

A port was angry accessiblefor Windows Telephone shortly after Microsoft acquired Mojang. The port concentrates on the creative building and the primitive survival aspect of the game, and does not includeall the features of the PC release. On his Twitter account, Jens Bergensten said that the Pocket Edition of Minecraft is written in C++ and not Java, due to iOS not being able to assistanceJava.

On 10 December 2014, in observance of Mojang's acquisition by Microsoft, a port of Pocket Edition was released for Windows Telephone8.1. On 18 January 2017, Microsoft announced that it would no longer maintain the Windows Telephoneversions of Pocket Edition.

Around 2011, prior to Minecraft's full release, there had been collaboration between Mojang and The Lego Group to make a Lego brick-based Minecraft game to be called Brickcraft. This would have modified the base Minecraft game to utilizeLego bricks, which meant adapting the primary1x1 block to accfor huge pieces typically utilize in Lego sets. Persson had worked on the preliminary version of this game, which he had named "Project Rex Kwon Do" based on the joke from Napoleon Dynamite. Lego had greenlit the project to go forward, and while Mojang had put two developers on the game for six months, they later opted to cancel the project, as Mojang felt that the Lego Group were too demanding on what they could do, according to Mojang's Daniel Kaplan. The Lego Group had considered buying out Mojang to complete the game, but at this point Microsoft angry its offer to buy the organizationfor over US$2 billion. According to the Lego Group's Ronny Scherer, the organizationwas not yet sure of the potential success of Minecraft at this point and backed off from acquisition after Microsoft brought this offer to Mojang.
