1) Depending on how old she is, just take the money back. 2) If there isn't a big difference in age, take one of her dresses or shoes, and hide it till she gives the money back. 3) After completing step 1 or 2, enjoy your house :D

Do you, #8?! Because any Minecraft enthusiast would know that it is possible to make a backup file of your previous save. So when a mistake does happen, you can reload to a previous save where everything is fine before any accidents.

Minecraft automatically saves when you hit escape or close the game. Unless you back up the save to a different location you can't revert.

If it was worth $86 to you, don't you think you should've backed up your save (if PC)? Seriously, if it's that important, prepare for shit like this. Why the fuck is a minecraft house you only spent a week building worth that much anyway?

He's absolutely right. Why is he downvoted? You can backup on both PC and console to a different location. What is so difficult about taking 3 minutes of your time to copy the save folder to a different area? Even if my entire house was wiped out in a hurricane, my saves would be safe. Its called a cloud. This is the 21st century man.

I played minecraft before people decided to devote their lives to it apparently. When I played; when the creeper got your house, you just had to rebuild it. Sucks to suck.

There's also a thing called "don't take video games this fucking seriously". I'm a gamer but if my sister would have done this to me I would have told her "go for it. Just know I'm faster and stronger than you and I'm the one blocking the door".

you've obviously never played MC. its like taking an artist's drawing and threatening to destroy it, they'll pay. sure its just a drawing or digital building in a game, but its the work and effort that matters.

He probably assumed it would only be a temporary measure to stop her right then and until their parents made the little extortionist give the money back. Sadly his parents think their daughter acting like a criminal is hilarious.

41: from an artist, a house in Minecraft is not on par to losing a piece of unfinished artwork digitally or ruining traditional art, you can't recreate a piece of art detail by detail like you can in a video game about blocks - if he was on a public server, it was bound to be griefed eventually anyway.

#56 if she was on his account he would be screwed. but if she joined a server where you can get banned by griefing he could've just let her tnt it if they could do an undo command like on the coreprotect plugin it would be fine

Theres other ways of going about getting rid of a pesky sister than letting her blackmail him. If his parents are so nonchalant about not getting his money back, then I guess he could just kick her off the game for good. doesn't sound like his parents are going to do anything about it one way or the other. threatening behavior begets threatening behavior.

Could it be that between two bad things - game addiction and money-involving prank, parents decided which is worse? As (hopefully) former game addict (though not MC), I can tell you this - I hate pranks, but game addiction is horrible thing. I do feel for OP, but anyone ready to pay blackmail to protect game progress should pay it and pay it more, until they realize it is just a game and even if they wouldn't be able recreate the house exactly, they should not be wasting money on that.

# 41 & 56 As an artist who has lost work in minecraft and on multiple drawings, I agree with this comparison. Both take a shitton of work, and I could never do 90% of the things the minecrafters do. Losing either would frustrate me to no end.

i play on factions a lot, so i could lose everything i own except for an ender chest at any moment, and it has happened, but life moves on, and theres always more resouces

I'm just surprised OP had $86. I'm weird& carry minimal cash and just use my credit card lol. If I were OP, I would've been like "Sure, you want all the cash in my wallet? Here's $7."

yeah I wouldn't pay the ransom but id be pissed I wonder just how far she would make it because with every problem comes a solution. I don't play mind craft but if someone purposefully destroyed something I was working on there would would be a striking pain coming from their back

Yes, she's going far down the path of being a spoiled and manipulative bitch who will think it's okay to take whatever she pleases without consideration of others.

Putting all that work just for a game? I axe you to go out and enjoy the fresh air for a change.
