He makes a fair point but we won't know for sure until the game devs get hold of the tech.

As a 3D-programmer I can't do anything but agree with what Notch says. I've been thinking about the problem of the insane amount of data needed to do something like this all along. Obviously a scam. Also, the 1 byte of data that notch mentions that would be needed to save the translation of an atom is very optimistic.

If Notch said it, it must be true. After all he did create one of the greatest games

Minecraft is a piece of crap compared to most games. The game is repetitive to no end. Get resources, build, get resources, build, then fight off the creepers and repeat.

We still do not know if notch is right or not about his theory. Did he work on it?

In time we will know the truth.

What? None of that is even remotely relevant. Read his blog for christ sake.

Minecraft is awsome! But you sound like one of those "If Kojima says it it must be true" kind of people..

Like I said before, until this is used in a practical application,, it is just a fancy tech demo

Uuh notch is right in concept Minecraft is also kinda like a voxel render those cube.

And the math behind it is in notch's page.
Don't even think avatar used that much ram.

I thought it looked crap tbh.

Awful shadows and crap lighting.
