And here”s another think I”m wondering about. Why is the universe call “Universe”? Implying there”s only one UNI?

Yes, and it would follow the player as he/she walked. I know that”s not how it works but at least it”s close enough.

There”s an infinite number of suns. They all travel in the same direction in the sky and are spaced evenly appart. Same with the moons.

Minecraft is not infinite, its surface area is about 8 times that of the real earth though. Someone once set off on a journey to the “far lands,” aka the edge of the world. He has not been heard from since.

As for the Universe question, it can be called the Universe because it is self defining, if it is the only one, then by default is contains everything. Things get weird when you involve dimensions, which exists in the same universe.

If you build a man a fire he will be warm for a day,
If you set a man on fire he will be warm for the rest of his life.
minecraft world size = infinite
minecraft sun and moon move around it

sun and move move around

MOVE AROUND

AROUND

ROUND

NOOOOOOOOOO!

now for srs.

sun speed to travel round world = infinite due to world being infinite
infinite – infinite = 0
0 divided by… oh crap.

Minecraft is only limited by data types. Of course it”s not “infinite” simply because there is no way to represent a infinite value using a finite number of bits. Minecraft”s limitations to a certain size are one of data types, not one of design. If the code was rewritten to use a BigDecimal instead of a float/double/whatever it uses, than the gameworld would be infinite and there would be no far lands or other weird issues or crashes. The game would run hella-slow though.

Basically, arguing that “Nu uh, the Minecraft world isn”t really infinite” is pointless; it”s an implementation detail. It would be like if I was to say “minecraft isn”t really A Java Program, it”s Java bytecode!”. It”s pointless and adds absolutely no value to the discussion whatsoever.

I think it functions much like a rainbow irl…..You can run towards it as long as you want but you will never get to it.

I never did get that pot o” gold =(

The only way for the sun and moon to exchange positions around an assumed infinite geometric plane would be for them to exist outside of the space the plane occupies. In this sense, regardless of the size of the world, the sun and moon must always exist outside of it. Instead of the sun and moon moving, I”d think it”d be more likely that the plane rotates about an axis, and the sun and moon are stationary objects.

They would have to exist in such a way that their declination appears the same from all points on the plane, even for two people standing at exact opposite corners. I”m not really sure how to theorize that. There would be no “time zones” this way, as the sun/moon would appear to be in the same place everywhere, creating the universal time we observe. When it is day at one location, it is day at all locations. The moon is simply facing the underside of the plane (if we are acknowledging the underside Void, then the moon would have to be behind it).
