It's the best choice because
- Minecraft has a big and powerful community with players, developers, and game hosts. (See reference links)
- We all love Minecraft
Even though Metacraft is a community-driven project and any value exchanges in the Metacraft metaverse will not be profited by the Metacraft team, we are aware that building plugins to extend a game whose IP is owned by others may violate any legal terms, or at least, disrespect to the original author.
For this purpose, after consulting with legal experts, we have carefully adjusted our tech stack to meet with the latest Minecraft's EULA. See the diagram below for a simple illustration of our software stack.
Players will still need to buy an official game license from Minecraft's current operator Microsoft to log in to the game.
We will publish an official legal opinion document to discuss the EULA Compliance in detail, once we have funds to hire a lawyer.
