Is Cracked Minecraft illegal? It seems to have become a big debate lately. Some people are really mad that one of the most popular mods on this game, which enhances the player’s experience by providing many levels of variation and customizability, is being banned. Other players are happy that the mod is free and available to everyone.
So, is Cracked Minecraft illegal? It’s completely legal and people can freely download and use any mod on the game. But, there are certain “terms and conditions” that must be adhered to in order for you to get banned from certain servers or from the entire server list.
One of the first things that many people are upset about is that some people are creating bots that are trying to get banned from many popular servers. There are several ways to create a bot that will constantly download and install shaders. One way to create such a bot is to fill out a lot of requests to popular modding websites and request that they put “cracked” into the title of your picture. You will then wait for the server administrator to ban you for using such a phrase in your username.
In fact, if you want to play the game in the most legal way possible, you should never use “modding” phrases in your username. This is because in the java edition, modders are not allowed to change any part of the game. Only the assets of the game can be changed. So, if you enter a chat. saying, “I made my own power generator”, you might get banned.
However, what about the servers that allow you to play with “creative” mods on them? Yes, they too could be considered illegal if you download content from them, but only if you have permission from the server owner. This means that you could find yourself banned if you do so. In most cases, servers that allow “creative” mods will require you to buy a license each time you want to use one of them. This is true for both the java edition and the “official” mcpkin editions as well.
If you want to play the game on a server where there is no one force you to buy the game, then you’re better off finding one. However, the “official” minecraft editions, and indeed the “official” mcpkins, are supported by the game’s developer, and will always have free updates. These versions of the game are packed with all kinds of new stuff, like weapons, levels, mods, cheats, and more. If you want to play on one of these servers, then you will have to buy the game, of course. The “official” minecraft edition costs around forty bucks, but the mcpkins and the “official” ones are often priced at a few hundred dollars.
However, many argue that you shouldn’t need to pay to play multiplayer on a site with legal ads; you can simply use a Java launcher. This is true, and if you are looking to play multiplayer on a Java-based game (such as Age of Conan or another similar game), then the Cracked Minecraft is perfectly legal. Again, if you choose to go this route, you will have to read the fine print of your particular program’s license, because many programs will not allow downloading of certain content.
If you are looking to run the Cracked Minecraft version on your Vanilla server, then you are fine, as long as you use a Java server. However, you might find the Java server software lacking when it comes to modding the Cracked Minecraft server. In fact, many developers (including myself) are finding that the “official” version of the Cracked Minecraft has too many bugs to be worth playing. If you really want to try the “vanilla server” version, then you can just download the open source version from the official site and install it (or copy it over from the original downloaded file). Many people are doing just that!
