I'm going to assume op is talking specifically about the shadows and shaders and that in this hypothetical scenario, the bot update and putting the game on steam still happened.

After taking several years to reflect on it, I think removing maps was a bad move. The new shadows make the game look wonderful.... outside. Meanwhile building interiors look colorless and bland unless you build a forgetton of windows and make sure they're facing the right way. I always turn them off on any server where the majority of the action happens indoors cause it just looks so dark and bad. I was ok with this at the time because I was under the impression that wrench lights were going to be updated as well to make up for it, but that never happened.

Maybe maps weren't so great as people make them out to be, but they were an extremely popular feature. Most people were cool with them being removed after the update was announced, but I can tell you absolutely no one was calling for their removal prior to the announcement. Now that I know for certain that removing maps totally didn't pave the way for all the cool updates we were promised, I'm comfortable saying it wasn't worth it. Shadows and shaders were basically an attempt by badspot and kornman to make the game sell more copies on steam. I think it was successful in that regard, but it seems like most of the remaining active users these days have been playing since before v21, and most of the people who bought the game immediately after the update only played for a day or two then moved on.

With all that said, do I think that if maps had never been removed, the game would magically be way more active and prosperous than it is today? No. I really doubt all those steam boomers who clearly didn't fall in love with blockland would have stuck around this long just to explore the maps.

All in all, I think if v21 had never happened, the community in 2020 would basically be exactly the same. Only with more horrible post-modern meme maps. And frankly I'm sad we'll never get to see those.

You could argue that maybe if maps were never removed, there would be less of generally hateful attitude towards badspot in the hearts of certain fun characters who have pulled off certain fun and cool pranks in blocklands history and in the last couple months especially. But I doubt it would be significantly different since some of the literally pyschopaths in this game have hated badspot since long before v21.

Forgive me but how is buildbot any different from using macros? Macros have been an offical feature of the game since it was released. They still exist? Did they get removed at some point???

WHY. WHAT THE forget IS WRONG WITH GEESE. WHAT. WHAT DID GEESE EVER DO WRONG? WHAT LIBERAL PROPAGANDA DO YOU HAVE THAT TRY TO SLANDER GEESE? YOU MUST ALSO HATE BABIES AS WELL. IF YOU HATE GEESE YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY A PSYCHOPATH. SERIOUSLY. THEY ARE PRECIOUS LITTLE HONKS WITH SOFT BELLIES WHO ARE JUST TRYING TO LIVE DAY BY DAY. UNFORTUNATELY, THERE ARE PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO WILL TRY AND DEMOLISH, SLANDER, AND DEMORALIZE GEESE WITH NO HESITATION TO THINK ABOUT HOW THEY FEEL, OR EVEN TRY TO COMPREHEND THEIR DAILY STRUGGLES. GEESE ARE FRIENDS. THEY GRACIOUSLY EAT GRASS SO WE DON'T HAVE TO MOW IT. THEY WILL WARD OFF PREDATORS TO SAVE THEIR FLOCK. THEY ARE ONE BIG GEESIE COMMUNITY WHO CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER AND SUPPORT EACH OTHER.

The irony is, while a AAA studio would have the resources to respond to this situation much faster and more effectively than a lone dev, a AAA studio probably would have said, "eh, forget it, not worth the negligible amount of money we were making off this thing," and just throw the whole game in the trash. So yeah I'm quite happy with the fact that effort is being made at all to fix this.

My job is gone. It was a small business, probably run by the indian mob or whatever, but they were pretty poor so it probably won't come back when/if this is over. Which sucks because out of the 7 jobs I've had, it's the only one I've had that didn't make me want to kill myself and actually made me pretty happy. So when quarantine ends I probably won't ever be able to go back which means the end of me having money. Been playing blockland a lot, been drinking a lot more. Not dead yet but if I do, I'll let you know.
