I understand that @Ronnie. I get why parents might disable all IAPs. It’s very easy for a kid to get carried away and buy consumables or whatever without a second thought to the cost that it might be racking up. Heck, I get shocked when I see my wife’s Candy Crush purchases. But she has her vice and and I have mine
I just wanted to clarify a difference between the consumables that disappear and you always need more (but don’t “cost” the game company one single cent to produce) versus a service which the game company is actually paying for on their side. I just looked at the Minecraft PE app and their Realms offering is similar. Except, they require an IAP of $3.99(USD) to host a server for you and TWO friends. Just TWO, not 16, not even 8. TWO. Or if you really need TEN friends online (but who has that many friends?) you can pay $7.99(USD) a month. That makes Blockheads seem like a bargain eh?
Maybe some kids could present that to their parents and show how much money they’ll save by running a Blockheads server versus a Minecraft PE one.
@KP7 yes, hosting your own Minecraft server is be very much like hosting your own BH server on a Mac. It avoids the cost on you by not having any cost for Dave.
