how's the university going?:) Did you tell someone yet about mineblocks?:D

It is going well so far, but it's making me SUPER BUSY! But my roommate is nice and I'm having some fun. Except when I accidentally missed one of my classes because of a scheduling issue (my bad!). xD

One of my professors already knew about Mine Blocks and had me talk about it in class. It was a bit awkward for me, because I don't really like to talk to people about it, but it was still pretty cool. Someone in the class even told me that they already played the game before, and that they used to have a lot of fun playing it. So that was a first - something I never really expected to happen!

What if Mojang liked Mine Blocks and wanted you to work with them , what would you do ?

DeathCop4000

Gosh I don't know. Probably!

I just have to keep in mind: I'm focused on college right now, I own all of the rights on my game development, and I really enjoy working alone. Everything would be turned upside-down if I worked for Mojang. I bet it would pay off in the end though - a "stable" job doing what I love, meeting amazing developers and helping build the community I always loved. Wouldn't that be the best job ever?

I will have only the awesomest of dungeons.

If you're asking about the Mine Blocks 1.27 update - nothing is changed in the world generator :)
I'm excited to add structures to MB2 though - those will be sweet, I'm sure!

Would you rather wear a snow suit in the desert or be naked in Antarctica?

Snow suit in the desert, because I could then proceed to take it off and use it to shield me from the sun. Then at night I would use it to sleep. :D

What's a good programing language to learn and where would I learn it?

This isn't a bad article to read about that http://www.wikihow.com/Learn-a-Programming-Language
I personally like coding in ActionScript, and learned by experimentation and reading the reference manual.

Alex, if you could change your age, what age will you be?

Macie Litzi

It would be neat to go back to being like 8 years old and practically start over with a fresh start :)

Not that I'm unhappy with my life decisions, just that I would never want to be older and waste the limited time of our 'short' lives :D

What qualities do you think are necessary to having a successful career path?

If you want to work for yourself, you should be passionate, adaptive, risky, and clever. Network with people who share your interests, and always seek potentially rewarding opportunities.

It helps to be able to know yourself well, so you can extract these qualities and improve them consciously :) You can't doubt yourself - believe you will succeed!

5) It'll be possible to add your own blocks or items (like modding the game)? 6) Can u give me all blocks' icons to upload 'em in the Wiki? :v 7) Will you add an option to change the brightness of the game?

Tobias Nahuel Alcaráz

Each block is a separate assets in the game, so "sending them all" will require several hours of opening them in an image editor, rescaling them, then saving to a unique filename.

So, it's not really a practical thing for me to do right now. I'll be doing it eventually though - possibly in 1.31!

What made you get into game development? :)

It was progressive. My first computer was a Mac, and I didn't have Internet, so after a while I got bored of games and started fooling around.

I ran into various things, such as animated gifs (I was amazed), Java applets (confused), and AppleScript commands.
I fooled around in PowerPoint and AppleScript for a while, making animations and simple commands. (Anything that would keep be preoccupied). Then I discovered that I could make websites in files on the computer, and dabbled with that.

One particular HTML book I got from the library contained a CD with a trial version of Flash MX 2005. I was attracted to the coding of it, and slowly learned how to make games.

Later, I got a new computer, a newer version of Flash, and regular Internet access at the library :) I started animating in Flash for a web series called The Alex and Lexis Show, which opened doors to music dev, web dev, animating, programming, and other stuff. From there I got much more attached to making games (I started making some for the web series too).

Then I started the Mine Blocks project, got a few actual fans, made a new website (zanzlanz.com), and here we are now :D

Wut if you were a girl? \o/

Plenty of things would be completely changed xD

I doubt I'd be a programmer/game developer, because I probably would have been more busy hanging out with the other girls in the area and never fooled around with code on the computer. (There were much more girls in the area when I was a kid)

That would mean my whole social life would be backwards and I'd be someone like-so-totally different. ;)

I'm not sure if it would be better or worse if I was a girl. In a lifestyle sense, it might have been better because I'd be more involved and less caught up with games and stuff. Although, I probably would have a harder time finding a real job, but I can't really say how my demeanor would have changed. Perhaps I'd find an equally (if not more) productive hobby.

How my future like would depend on how my social life would be different. Honestly, I see a lot of social people making poor life-decisions, and I have to wonder if I would be worse-off as a girl?
(As mentioned before, there's a likely chance I'd be more prone to hang out and be more social if I was a girl due to the kids in the area.

As for how my family and I connect, I wonder how that would be different. I can guess that it still really depends on how social I would be, but I'm sure the relationship between me and my half-brother wouldn't have been the same.

I can imagine the differences I MADE in other people would be off too. I can't really think about that too much, but I just know that if I was a girl, my group of friends would be very different.

I hope that answers your question :3
