I think that I have a good idea for Minecraft but I need to now if the community like it, so if you could leave some feedback that would be much apprieciated!!
First of all I think there should be a new biome called the Tropical Biome that is like a desert but instead of sand there is grass and instead of cactus there could be tropical crops.
The first drink I'm going to introduce is Tea. You would use the Tea Leaves and a bucket of water to make Cold Tea, which would heal 1 heart. Then you could put the Cold Tea in a furnace to make Tea which would heal 2 hearts.
The next drink would be coffee which is basically the same as Tea. The only difference is that you don't use Tea Leaves, you use Coffee Beans. Also drinking coffee gives you a 25 second sprint boost (you know, because of the caffeine)
The final drink or drinks, are Chocolate Milkshake and Hot Chocolate. Chocolate Milkshake is made by combining Cocoa Beans, a Bucket of Milk and Sugar, this would heal 2 hearts. Then if you put Hot Chocolate in a furnace you get Hot Chocolate which gives you 3 hearts, or 4 hearts in a snow biome.
I think there should be more drinks. Maybe different types of smoothies and milkshakes? Add bananna trees? Maybe barley and alchohol (barley --> alchohol) so you can make "adult" drinks maybe? I think that drinks could be a good addition to minecraft, but try to expand on it.
Good idea, poorly executed. Just make them new foods, w/o all the new biomes. Tea leaves in jungles or forests, combined with a WATER BOTTLE to heal some hunger. Same for all else, perhaps utilize bowls too.
This idea needs to be developed more. And your description of the Tropical Biome leaves me scratching my head. It sounds to me like you're saying "the Jungle biome, but flat like a desert and with no trees"... is that correct or am I way off?
Firstly, despite advanced in redstone technology and such, Minecraft is still mostly a non-modern game. Can you imagine going to an inn during the Middle Ages and ordering a milkshake? However, coffee and tea are ancient, and therefore would be fine.
I think I remember learning that one of the first uses of chocolate as a drink was in South America, but it was salted, not sugared, and would've tasted very different from anything like hot chocolate. Might be better for the Millenaire mod. Still, I support the expansion of cocoa beans into something... though I'm not sure cocoa is necessarily the way to go. (Note: Villagers ought to buy cocoa beans. They're exotic goods. I'd love to see a "trader" or "merchant" villager who likes to be supplied with unusual goods, such as cocoa beans, mushrooms, and lapis lazuli.)
Secondly, you should be required to make Hot Water in order to craft either Tea or Coffee. Perhaps it's time to move from the bucket to some sort of pot or tea kettle? Actually... I think it'd be cool to have a Stove block that you could place a Pot or Kettle on (in my head, it looks something like the flower pot for size), and the Pot or Kettle becomes an interface like the furnace or brewing stand. You can add ingredients (such as water) and watch when they heat up. I haven't thought about this longer than a minute, so I don't have more details, but it sounds worth developing... and in addition to making the kitchen a bit more realistic, it'd allow us to craft some additional food of some sort.
Thirdly, I'm not sure what effect the tea and coffee ought to have. They shouldn't be "the easy potion" but perhaps they could act somewhat like food. If Minecraft ever gets a temperature management system (I'm much in favor of this, but it must be optional - you can turn it off via the Options Menu), then tea and coffee could be a fast way to get from a low temperature back to normal.
But yeah, think about this and develop it a bit better, and we'll see where you get with it.
Maybe there also can be just plain chocolate bars and maybe villagers in a tropical biome plant cocoa beans and tea herbs and coffee beans instead of wheat try to expand more on the new biome. Maybe the jungle biome could be the "tropical" biome
