i think that they will finish the api so that you can add mods through the client which would hopefully be working in multiplayer.
so that mojang does not have to add content themselves and each server/player can define their own content for their playstyle.
now mojang could fix the last bugs and maybe add a mod/patch sparsely but they could work on a new game maybe?
I think there will be more hostile mobs, and new biomes!
TimeBlows, I looked behind me, you're not in that location. O_O But what I think will happen (Hopefully) is an opposite of nether? No, I am not saying the Ether mod, but isn't it weird how we enter the hell lands but no good lands? That's just one of my thoughts. Perhaps add more use to Emeralds? Or maybe have more textures of mobs instead of the same texture every time? (Cows are not ALWAYS brown and white, nor are pigs solid pink) I know sheep are already like that, but why not the rest of the mobs?
Here's my question: Where's the magic in this game? Hear me out;
There's enchanting, brewing, sword fighting, and archery. Even books, for goodness sake. Minecraft would look really cool with some particle effects, no question in that. How about cool books that would have spells in them? Or maybe put a Skyrim-spin on things and have them accessible at specific places in the world, within X amount of blocks from spawn? Something that would be fair to all players on multiplayer servers. Or maybe not?
I could go on, but these are only some crazy ideas flowing from my brain as I type this.
But honestly, Minecraft is not the game it used to be. For better or for worse, is up to opinion. I'd like to see a real adventure update. Pets, magic, more ENGAGING mobs, even another dimension! Sure it's a lot of work, but it's more exploring, which is a main aspect of what captured our attentions and made us fall in love with surviving, filling us with pride when we made it through the night.
While Minecraft is a more family friendly game, I get it, it's totally cool. It's crazy what the human mind can come up with. Sporadic thoughts forever.
I appreciate all that Mojang has done for us. Microsoft owns the rights to Minecraft now, and I and so many others of us can only hope that maybe Microsoft can care and give us a fresh and new spin on this wonderful franchise.
