The only thing I'm worried about is how falling rain and snow will look when there are blocks above you. I don't want to be in my house and see rain/snow. Also, I don't want my water pit in my home to freeze when there's a roof over it already. I doubt I'm the first to think of this, though. I trust Notch will take this into consideration.
We need oil. OIl could be found underground and can power Cars? Motors? If you furnace it it could be asfalt. Which could be made into roads Which vehickels move faster onto.
what, are we trying to completely destroy the ecology of minecraft? Isn't coal bad enough? What's next? Nuclear energy?! :tongue.gif: /sarcasm
I think, what we really need is for notch to add all or the stuff he said he was going to add, has been added then removed, or has had some work done to it; like lanterns, gears, locked chests, that mystery block, maybe even sponges (but the mechanics of what they do will have to change), a natural way to get apples from trees, dragons, yadda yadda yadda.
