I'm looking for an official response to this question:
Would there be consequences for distributing worlds created in Minecraft with the intent of having multiple people host community run events without building their own worlds from scratch?
I know there are ways to take a save from my 360 and back it up on my computer. I've always done this for games I no longer play should I decide to come back to them one day, while freeing up space on my HD for more content. I'm not going to describe the process but using the same tools it is also possible to distribute save files for use on any profile. What I aim to do is not to fraudulently award achievements or rewards to players taking part in my events. I only wish to distribute the maps so that other players can host the same event without having to put in countless hours in preparation. Ideally, I'd like some sort of tool to upload the world data to a server that can then be downloaded by other players, similar to the Rock Band store.
My ultimate goal is to provide players with various games designed within maps such as PvP arenas, dungeons and team based objective games. Again, not to provide easy to obtain achievements, rewards and not for personal gain.I will also be going to the developer forums to ask if the functionality could be added in a title update.
Yes, I do understand that technically this isn't allowed, what I'm wondering is if Microsoft will devote the resources to taking action against myself and any of those who would help me.
