Wow this thread is so wrong. Even your British stereotypes are wrong.

Anyway, 200m exp was never a Java limitation. They just manually capped it at that because "who will ever get 200m exp?".
The actual integer limit in through binary in Java is 2,147,483,648. So they easily could have made the cap over 2 billion exp.

actually the cap is in place because of the integer limit, there is a decimal point on exp shortening the visible number by one digit, they rounded it to an even 200m to make it look better.


And they could have always moved the decimal place. Like I said, manual cap. If they wanted to allow us more than 200m, they would have.
