    I'm actually going to buy Minecraft and play it for the first time. Is there anything that I should know about the game or downloads any mods or texture packs?

    No need for mods or texture packs if it's your first time. Be sure to check out http://www.MinecraftWiki.net for help. Good luck.

    I like R3D Craft Texture Pack, and use Optifine to get higher performance.

    Do note Optifine is still being bug tested, for 1.5 and things need to be ironed out. So it will likely change, as they work on bug fixes and compatibility.

    With every update there are fewer original multiplayer bukkit Minecraft worlds. When Mojang releases the official API for Minecraft there may be no more bukkit at all. That will be sad because websites like byteus which have maintained the same world since alpha will no longer be able to update. Oh well, I guess.

    I wish I could go to sleep and wake up 5 years from now ...just to see what Minecraft would look like 5 years from now.

    But hopefully when there is no more Bukkit we will no longer have to wait a week or more for an updated version so we can update servers. As a moderator on a nice server it bugs me to have to make my players wait a week before they can update their clients because I'm waiting on Bukkit to update.

  11. Dont need to pay for it just give your email address and you can download the client and play offline. After you run the app for the first time when asked for login id just put anything and when it says login failed just click play offline, hey presto you can play to your heart content and even host LAN games too

    Enjoy
