Thanks for the feedback.

To drag the full stack click and hold a stack, we may change this to use the other mouse buttons.

As for the reduction in quick slots, I hear you. Though this is not that easy to fix. We moved them to the bottom because the corner was very akward to access, particularly in mobile. But then we don't really have that much space there. We will try to think of something here.

I understand that when we do changes like these, some people won't like it. We are creatures of habits and we hate change. You already went through the learning curve of the old interface, and for you to have to relearn it is not fun. We completely get this.

That said, the previous interface tested to be awful for new users. People kept asking "how do I split?" and people often gave up on the game out of frustration trying to figure out the game. The new interface has proven to be much easier for new users. This is something we tested, not an opinion.

Please take a look at the old interface and new interface side to side:
Blockstory.net

You can see how messy, cluttered and just generally bad the previous interface was.

So I ask you guys to kindly give the new interface a chance.

Try clearing the Desura cache, I am as frustrated as you by the fact that some people have this issue.

Else, get the standalone version

Thank you for your feedback Johnnyjsj

Some of the things you point out are being addressed. We are working on making an MMO with this technology, wich will feature characters that will match the terrain better. So right there we address multiplayer and the theme problem you are pointing out.

I understand many people don't like MMO, but there are lots of people that do and it will be a key differentiator from other games in this genre. With the MMO we will break new ground and that is something we are striving for. If you read "the origins of block story", you will see that has been the vision all along.

That said, I do plan to address private multiplayer. A user will be able to rent a server and invite his friends. I know this is not exactly the same as local multiplayer, but it addresses a lot of the same needs while eliminating the piracy problem we are having with block story.

Not really Quinn13, Infinite up and down and colored lights are impossible to add with mods, they require a rewrite of the voxel engine and light engine. Also the fact that we get 10 times the framerate. It is impossible to have compatibility between mobile and desktop with mods either.

Sure, some of the other stuff could be added with mods. With some mods you could turn minecraft into an RPG. Does that mean that there is no point in making any other RPG?

There are texture packs in the site, horses to ride are coming.

you lose experience when you die. It is very hard to level up if you die all the time.

For better water, turn on fog in the graphics settings, we don't do it by default because it affects performance on some devices.

Thanks for the feedback.

If you make 10 swords at a time that last 1 hit, it is the exact same thing as 1 sword that lasts 10 hits. The only difference is that this way you know exactly how long they last.

If I simply changed how I display the weapon duration and just divide the current number by 10 it would be what you are asking for yet not change gameplay in any way.

I have not played vox, but I can tell you some of the things we have that minecraft doesn't:

* Infinite up and down
* Colored lights and glass
* Quests
* Leveling up with skill points
* Vehicles like car, jetpack, diver suit
* Radar
* Teleporters
* 90+ mobs, including dragons, megalodons, trex and many others
* Very fast, framerate is about 10x
* Normal mapping and specular lightning
* Atlantis
* World up in the sky
* Full compatible with the mobile version, copy your worlds over from your pc to your phone and back
* Mana
* Flying
* spells you cast on monsters
* Guns

yes, there is mining and ores, lots of them, some in the sky world, some in hell, some in the ground.

The rpg elements are: quests, leveling up, experience, armor with stats, skill points

For crafting, use the 3 buttons for the mouse, to split stacks in half and
