The purpose of this topic is to give the Minecraft team more village-house designs to work with and simply improve villages in general.
I've seen quite a lot of suggestions that just go on and on, so to keep your attention I'll try to keep this short and sweet.
The issue: when I first saw the pictures and videos of villages-to-be in 1.8 and beyond I thought "Great!" but some part of me felt that I could improve upon those designs.
Not to sound arrogant, but a lot of people in the community are more talented at building stuff than the team working on Minecraft. This is understandable, really, since they are busy with coding a lot of the time.
So hear my plea, if you have experience building houses and villages why not show us a picture? If its good I might even put it, or a link to it, in the Original Post.
Try to make decent sized houses with distinct designs, preferably something that'll blend in with the already existing buildings. The hardest challenge will of course be to somehow make Mojang aware of this since they get tons of suggestions, email and tweets every single day.
Last but not least; sharing a design in this topic means you are willing to let The Minecraft team use them if they so wish to improve upon future versions of the game, most likely without giving you credit.
If you think you can improve 1.8 villages with your building skills why not show them?
The NPC Villages article at Minecraftwiki: clicky!
A couple of examples of buildings that I have in my world:
If you think this is a good idea why not click that little green button down in the right corner? It'll make this topic more popular.
Adding more buildings to NPC Villages would only slow the update down. And notch already got pissed on someone that made an alligator, so dont think notch will be very pleased with this. Just leave these things to Jeb and Notch. They will add more buildings when they feel that they have time for that :smile.gif:
These village house designs are great for the npc villages. The veriety of buldings are a perfect additon to the village and add to the feel of it all. I made a village in my sp, but the buildings were too large and complex for an npc villge design, and the village was rather large also. Unfortunatly I do not have any screenshots of it. But anyway, Great work on your designs for the proposed villages!
Well of course they could do better in the NPC villages. Don't you think they'll constantly tweak and improve the game over time? That's what they do.
For goodness sake, NPC villages aren't even out yet. So don't worry, i'm sure Notch will improve the design of NPC villages over time, add some new ones. Something unique like a tree village, an underground cave village. Who knows what'll happen. :smile.gif:
