Apparently this just got released not that long ago:
That’s certainly… interesting. I can’t say I don’t appreciate it. For whatever their faults, this isn’t one of them. Hopefully this is just a taste of what they’ll do in the future.
Java in Visual Studio? What is this madness!
True. Anyone who already works with Java/Minecraft probably doesn’t use VS. However, they’re providing a market where this isn’t one.
No matter how you slice it, Minecraft reaching new people can only be a good thing.
Slowly their invest in Mojang seems to make sense…
They’re trying to reach young developers which is great!
We’ll see where this road takes us
we still need better forge tutorials
other than that, its great that they’re supporting it. .w.
Forge documentation, it’s happening http://mcforge.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
Using Visual Studio for mod and plugin development sounds interesting.
I probably won’t be switching anytime, soon. The fact that the possibility is there is nice, though.
“Microsoft versus Minecraft”? xD What a great link name
It’s supposed to be Microsoft Visual Studio Minecraft.
You don’t say :0
From my experience, minecraft in visual studio is a horrible idea. I’ve always had problems when using visual studio. Java support in VS however… It will just be one more IDE that isn’t as useful as Eclipse. I would die (and oracle too probably) if all of a sudden developers used “Visual Java”. We already hate .NET as it is
Its so much easier because it sets everything up automagically right?
What’s the big deal? Some team worked hard on it stop slamming it cause its a lil foreign to you. Youll hurt the devs feelings!!!
Right, tell me you don’t know where everything is at first glance when it “automagically” does it’s thing? I know how it works, but it’s a pain. This brings in a level of abstraction, which doesn’t help a new modder at all understand the inner workings of modding minecraft. In fact, it’s actually noise because it’s a visual studio extension which contains vbscript. It should be for the professional modders. I still wouldn’t recommend it though.
Also, I have a history… I hate Microsoft. I have my reasons. I hate Apple too. I could care less if I hurt the developers’ feelings.
I have a really big feeling that their biggest reason for aquiring Mojang has something to do with their new HoloLens product.
