In my opinion, without those alpha and beta versions, we wouldn't have what we currently do in Minecraft. Also this is my first thread, so what's your opinions on the older pre-v1.0 versions of Minecraft?

The Alpha landscape never really sparked my building creativity, but I loved flooding maps.

I used to really miss the Beta landscapes until they finally brought in the extreme hills biomes. But I will occasionally make a map in Beta 1.7 because I liked the way it generated hills with natural arches, maybe a rare completely hollow mountain, & the bizarre Farlands biome.

In older versions, you could add a little code in presets that made little villages into huge cities. Sometimes they'd load right on top of eachother. I miss the way they used to load unevenly on the mountains, forcing you to create new paths & stairs to free the villagers, By the time you were done, the villages looked really cool.

I'm really not at all a fan of the improvements made to villages & villagers. New villager behavior; their need to wander & look for bells & workstations, pretty much breaks huge cities. You have to go into every building & set up beds & workstations & bells so they don't abandon the town. I also really hate the golems; they're always in the way & getting stuck in narrow spaces & fenced areas.

In the end, whatever I generate gets updated, because I like to build & I want as many types of blocks as possible.

I love 'em. The game wouldn't be what it is today without them, and it CERTAINLY wouldn't have as many downloads. The Beta/Alpha stages defined Minecraft, and the game wouldn't be the same without them.

i like java 1.8.9 bc it has more mods available for it, only reason i like 1.14 is a few realistic features, some of the new textures are awful though...

In my opinion the game brings back nostalgia and has brighter sun. I like the very green leaves and grass.

I haven't taken the time to play any of those alpha/beta versions of Minecraft, but I have indeed played pre-classic mode. I don't know what it is, but something about spamming spastic Steves while you only are limited to building with one or a few blocks on the ground just feels so satisfying to me. :3

I really liked the Alpha and pre-1.8 Beta stages of Minecraft. The Adventure Update (Beta 1.8) really lessened the "uniqueness" of cave generation in my opinion. Before Beta 1.8, caves were a lot more random and fun to explore. You never knew what the shape or size of a new cave would be until you explored it.

Once 1.8 was released and stuff like ravines was added though, caves began to feel the same. Before that update, discovering something like a ravine-shaped cave would be incredible and exciting. Now, there can sometimes be so many ravines and abandoned mineshafts connecting several large caves, everything looks and feels identical while mining a near-endless system of tunnels. Having to travel and venture away from your house to find more ore is far less necessary now because you find so much of it in these huge caves.

I hope that future updates to Minecraft will allow for more varied or customizable underground world generation. I think that it'll make mining a lot more fun.

(and also, the "classic" look that Minecraft had before smooth lighting was added in the Adventure Update looked incredible. 😂)

I really loved playing back in the Beta stages, it just added more challenges to the game! (Like not being able to sleep)

wish the new Minecraft was harder bc hard mode is too easy, and can get boring at times. New minecraft needs new challenges to make it exciting again. Tried mentioning a new dimension, they wont listen. They finally added emerald tools, though hard to get, unless Eystreem is up to his lies again lol

There's no emerald tools, but I hope they update the nether.

That's the biome in most need of an update, yet it never makes it into the vote at Minecon.

I started playing in Beta 1.3_01, so those versions are what I think of as like....the iconic Minecraft experience. :-P

Personally, I got the game at release 1.1, but seeing the game in earlier states might be cool. The sheer nostalgia associated with seeing pre-1.0 videos on Youtube overwhelms me, though.
