Played around a bit. The new mob is interesting, but I still would like to see ambient fish, plants/corals and even birds for oceans and land. They don't have to do anything special. I am hoping the mod API comes through and I can get mo'creatures and whatnot added on a permanent basis - or so I hope.
The dungeon idea is nice, but I was hoping, and I speak only for myself and my spouse, that these things might occupy bodies of water at random, like squid and not just around a specific structure.
Those are my thoughts. Just gonna enjoy seeing what I can build with the new blocks
edit: what the pit is that creepy ghost thing?

I looked at the bug tracker site, but I'm not sure how to report a bug. I'm playing with a friend and we discovered that Dark Oak wood (the logs fresh from a tree) are bugged. When you harvest it, it's purple and black checkerboard, and when you try to place it, it crashes the game. Also, when I caught on fire (got too close to lava) all I could see (nearly the whole screen) was purple and black checkerboard, where the fire effects should have been. The other thing I've found is that stairs will not place properly. If you're standing facing east, then it's no problem, but any other direction won't place right.
why have nip mapping off, it doesn't affect fps at all
Why have it on? All it does is make stuff fuzzy in the distance. It's also both very obvious and stupid looking with things like ladders (they turn into complete fuzz like 12 blocks above your position).
Re: coarse dirt: if it's a replacement for "grassless" dirt then why bother adding in a new block? Isn't it just a texture change at this point?
The coarse dirt actually exists in 1.7 in savannahs but can not be obtained (even with Silk Touch), while in 1.8 it will be both obtainable and craftable with normal dirt and gravel. So you could say "coarse dirt" was already a thing, MogMiner just gave it a texture and some mechanic changes.
