Doing The Minecraft Clone Asset Store Challenge

So, I typed in Minecraft to search the asset store. … go for the low hanging fruit … Was expecting to see just object assets, like characters, weapons, blocks. There’s numerous of them, as expected.

I was surprised to see full on voxel terrain generators.
I found three. One “Next Gen” version for Unity 4. The other two were more blockish in Minecraft’s style.

The one gem that stood out was the Emerald AI Asset.

Did not expect to see something like this at all. Could easily see me buying this.

So with $100 Bucks, I found I could kickstart development a minecraft clone prototype . Would have much work head of me to integrate assets together and a good deal of design work to make a whole application. One of the big questions not answered would be multi-player and getting that to work if the design required it.
