It's never enough

Now that I have been playing Minecraft for a bit it’s definitely helped the kids bond with me. Charles spends a lot of time bugging me to install third party extensions (“mods”, from “game modifications”) that he wants to use. I think there’s something seriously wrong when my kids are asking me to do technically savvy stuff. It’s a source of continuing embarrassment for me.

They also want me to use my external editor to change stuff in the game. One of Charles’ (along with Corwin and Matt) big projects was building a model of a StarCraft battle cruiser. This lead to some conflict as various elements of the group had different ideas about the internal structure of the ship. Charles convinced me to duplicate it twice so each of them could have their own copy. But at least we’re interacting.
