They should improve Alice so there isn't enough reason to hate it. It's mostly because of how buggy it is most of the time.

Alice with mods can be pretty awesome, though. Although, I still can't get the save to file object working

Would the person who said that they hate Alice be willing to step forward with their argument? I don't care if you don't, but it would be nice to hear a reason.

I think Alice is great, it has soem very lacking elements though and I would hate to have to use it for my school:

A. Because the teacher would be instructing me how to use a program that I could make games with when I was 12

B. Becuase I'd rather be learning something more productive, like acual Java. Sure, I already know Java, but I could probably get in an advanced class of some sort and learn more

I think that people would 'Hate' it because they'd rather do something besides sitting on the computer and doing something they don't understand/care about. They might want to watch TV, play video games, or play sports. It's great that people get to use this program and all, but it'd really suck to have a time limit on when to finish a project.

I'd rather do it on my own time on what I want, and have it be my choice to do it, no the schools. Man, people 'rant' alice more on youtube comments:

There is a dangerous bug that when adding an object like a house or barn the other objects can move THROUGH THE WALLS of that object...........
But Alice is a great program if you want to learn how to program

That happens because Alice doesn't have built-in collision detection.

You want collision detection, program it yourself.


Thank you for taking the time to read this signature. This signature loves you.

I actually like that Alice doesn't have collision detection. What if you wanted to make a program where you had to pass through objects?
