DS age 14 is obsessed by this game. I limit his screen time to 2 hours a day but it seems to be all he thinks about too. Does anyone know, is there any eductional value in it? It looks very basic from what I've seen, am I just not getting it?
It's great afaik but I'm not sure about the whole servers thing - where you connect with other players - I worry about that, I think ds just plays on the download so not connecting as such.? But he always wants to go on youtube to look at how other people play it. I don't worry about minecraft 'violence' or weaponry at all. It's funny, not threatening.
The other day I found him on Gunbuilder though. He said his school friend has it. I don't like that and got cross.
I'm a bit feeble and reactionary about internet use, I don't have a clue what I'm dealing with so probably get it wrong a lot.
I'm trying to find out about the data download usage rate. I fear ours is being maxed out (we only have 15GB p/m) by minecraft. How does it work vis a vis data usage? I think we use the single player option and as far as I know, there is no 'server' involved (7 y o person is using it)
