How the Economy Works It might not seem like it when they are clicking away at the mouse to lay down blocks, but the game can have a big impact by teaching them that items are not infinite, and that they can and do run out.

Minecraft’s Role in Development

Client crashing in water!

I just updated my Minecrat client to the latest version and here's where the problems just start pilling up. Firstly I'm running optifine 1.14.3 with just a Shader mod, which was bad enough to get working. I saw another post about renaming the assets folder to ensure redownload of a possibly corrupted water sound file but that didn't work for me, unfortunately.

So it looks like optifine is the issue, but without OptiFine Minecraft is sooo laggy.
