Minecraft Recipe book
I am planning to write a Minecraft Recipe Book. The book would basicly be a handy guide of sorts detailing all the recipes used for crafting in Minecraft, and having actual recipes for cakes/cookies/sweet treats etc based on the available items in Minecraft mixed in. It would take the style of an old fashioned cookbook, but in the blocky Minecraft style.
To do this, I would need to use screenshots of the crafting screen and in game elements being harvested/in situ in the wild, as well as creating my own Minecraft-style character as the narrator/cook for the book.
I can see from the terms and conditions that screenshots etc are ok under the fair use, and that you don't want people to use them as the majority of the book, along with not using the word/logo Minecraft in the title or key words of the book.
I just want to double check this would be ok for me to do. I'm thinking the format would be something like:
List of wood recipes in game (for example)
Recipes to make food/cakes etc based on this section
List of metal objects
Recipes to make based on this.
Please can someone get back to me with advice if this would be ok? Id rather get the ok before I start than have my hard work wasted by having the book taken off sale due to breaking legal issues!
