Ever wanted Minecraft to be FOSS? I know I sure did, but of course Microsoft will never do that, so let us as the community create our own client! Together with Cuberite as the server you can have a completely FOSS Minecraft experience!

Still lots of work to do of course, but it’s promising!

Why not support Minetest instead?

Because Minetest is not Minecraft. Minetest is a cool project, but it’s aims are different. I (and others) like Minecraft, we don’t want something different, we want Minecraft.

This actually has the potential to get a lot of Minecraft players over to a FOSS client, Minetest really does not as it’s just targeted at a different market.

Looks great, I’ll give it a try today!

A quick suggestion though: looking at the repo’s README I see there’s no section explaining why it was forked from Stevenarella, when that project is still active (last commit 3 days ago). I think it would be nice to have a little paragraph with that info :)

That’s really nice! Remember that until Leafish and Cuberite are completely ready there is already a minecraft alternative called Minetest. As I said, an ALTERNATIVE. It doesn’t work exactly as Minecraft, but is also really fun. Currently, much much less bloated than Minecraft imo (I really enjoy it).

I actually made several memes a while ago about making Minecraft FOSS, so I’m really happy about this. And there is even Cuberite, which I didn’t know.

This is an opportunity we cannot afford to miss. This client could replace all proprietary free minecraft clients and that way (much) more people could be aware of Free Software.

You get it exactly! Minetest is a cool project, but it’s a different game. It’s not the same, and it isn’t a replacement for Minecraft.

Yup! Who knows, maybe at some point millions of players will use this 😜

This is the nature of FLOSS, if you have the time and passion, why should you do what others say instead of what you want?

It’s conflictive, but it’s the truth.
