The whole "you have to restart the game" thing is void if we're able to attach a remote debugger to the JVM running Rising World.
Bingo! exactly what i was thinking.
That in itself is a whole lot of flexibility, on the fly updating and tweaking!
Once we're able to mod with java, best believe i'm going to be getting my hands real dirty with it!
OOOOooowww yeahhhhh... and I bet there would be an explosion of ex-minecraft modders crawling all over RW mod section
This is what I'm really looking forward to. Minecraft has a huge modding community but RW looks nicer and Red wants the game to be modder friendly so I look forward to seeing all sorts of mods like FeedTheBeast, various dino mods, Mystcraft, and ofcourse enhanced shaders like Sonic Ether being re-written for Rising World
