Flying possibly confirmed in the next update!?

This looks like it would be awkward to maneuver, walking up and down and all around. Maybe we can only walk at a certain height. Like just walking flat, but getting to see everything.

There's more than one way to control flight, and it can be pretty natural most of the time. Limiting to a specific level might be too restricting, but it's one option. But this is all speculation really, Notch might have something completely different in mind.

Have you ever tried the /fly command in the SSP commands mod? It's actually not too difficult to maneuver; sneak sends you straight down, jump sends you vertically, and you can just go in whatever direction was WASD. It's a little awkward, but flying isn't supposed to be precise.

I'm sure whatever Notch has in mind will feel pretty natural.

Sometimes I edit my sig so it continues whatever I was posting about.

Basically, from what I discern in the screenshot, I believe it will turn out similar to that Fly command you mention. Personally, I prefer a more airplane like layout, but I like airplanes a lot so I'm kinda biased towards that.

Another, speculative use for it could be perhaps completely different? Maybe it's a sort of floating moving platform that moves in a set path? It's would certainly garner some uses like that as well. I could see something like that in use for elevators, ways to cross chasms and ravines, transportation across gaps and could even be used for some interesting platforming elements.

Now that I thought of that I'm not sure which I'd rather see though...

Are we getting magic and quest like Notch said he would put in the game someday now? Well, a boy can dream...

Notch mentioned that the picture contained spoilers. How do we even know that the flying is the spoiler? That might just be him messing around and the spoiler could be something else entirely.

Just grasping at straws really. Does look a bit unusual though. 8)
