    Therein lies the problem; if you're using a real-life ore, you must carry some of its real properties into Minecraft to make it fit. Things like Iron being impossible to break with wood, or Gold being soft and weapons made of it breaking quickly. You basically have to fit a "public consciousness" view of the ore- and everyone knows that uranium is radioactive and deadly. Steve carrying it in his hands just clashes with that idea.Fixed. You now take damage if you carry the ore for too long.

    Furthermore, even if we assume uranium is somehow harmless in this world, having a brick of it doesn't directly translate to nuclear power if you drop it in an iron box. Reactors are damn complicated; you need cooling, control rods, and an ungodly amount of other things to make sure nuclear power is safe, and to even have it happen there's a lot to need. Sure, we can cut that down immensely for Minecraft, but it's still something that makes you stop and go "why the hell is this in the game?" when you look at Nuclear Reactors in the Creative menu.And that's why nuclear reactors have nuclear meltdowns and explode.

    As much as I hate to say such a thing, this just doesn't fit for Minecraft.


    Minecraft may be a weird game (especially when its low and high tech are 700 years apart)- but generally there is at least a basic explanation available for why something is there. For instance, a lot of the complicated systems you can build are because of Redstone being a magical do-it-all power-conveying substance, or TNT being constructable owing to the fact that gunpowder is naturally available.


    But when there's no explanation to nuclear power, it strains that already frail system to the breaking point. Case in point: Steve has no justification for being able to build nuclear reactors. This isn't some weird "Blutonium" substance that's safe to handle but powerful, it's bona fide uranium and actual reactors. Building those with iron and placing them in your house is just beyond any suspension of belief.





    There is a basic explanation for why nuclear power is there, its the uranium ores.



    Neh, its unMinecraft and won't fit into the vanilla game.

    What constitutes "unMinecraft?"

    Ofc redstone is less powerful, but its Minecraft, unlike nuclear power.



    Nuclear power can be Minecraft as well if it gets added.

    How about an ax and what ever is the closest to a sickle?

    I am actually interested in this idea. I also think other symbols should be in minecraft as well, but the Soviet emblem should definitely be in minecraft.


    SUPPORT!!!

    No one wants that.


    You don't speak for everyone. Just because you don't want it does not mean no one wants it.

    Nuclear Power isn't the same as redstone.

    For radiation potion, it will either triple your walking speed, mining speed, strength, defense or some combination of them.

    Mojang should add nuclear mechanics to Minecraft.


    Uranium: Uranium ores will be found underground. You need an iron pickaxe or weaker to mine it. If you use anything stronger, it produces a nuclear explosion. Nuclear explosions also occur if the ore is shot by an arrow or blown up by a creeper/TNT. If you carry it in your backpack or toolbar for too long, you start taking damage from the radiation.


    Nuclear Reactor: These are crafted with 8 iron blocks around the edges and uranium in the middle. Their size is 2x2x2 blocks. They work 20x faster and more efficient than iron furnaces. Instead of running on coal, they run on uranium. They will also make regular furnaces run this efficiently if they are within 20 blocks from them, plus regular furnaces won't have to run on coal when near a running reactor. The down side is that occasionally, they sound an alarm that they are experiencing a nuclear meltdown. If that happens, you have 15 seconds to take out the uranium in the reactor or else it creates a nuclear explosion. There is a 25% chance that reactors will create nuclear waste instead of the desired item. Nuclear reactors can also serve as redstone. Nuclear reactors can also power redstone very well and in a different way called "nuclear powered redstone".


    Cooling Tower: Crafting is complicated. The walls are crafted with 9 iron blocks. The walls are placed as a 3x3 circle and 4 blocks high. You then need to put water on top and it turns into a cooling tower. Its base is 3x3 and its height is 4 blocks. When adjacent to a nuclear reactor, it stops 90% of nuclear meltdowns. However, this percentage goes down the more heavily used nuclear reactors are.


    Nuclear Powered Redstone: Redstone powered by a nuclear reactor. It is more powerful then regular redstone, and poered redstone trails for up to 200 blocks long. Powered rails are 5x stronger than regular rails, and redstone lamps get brighter. Its restone effects also requires 1 uranium rod, where each rod runs the reactor for 5 minecraft days.


    Uranium Rod: Can only be made by smelting a uranium ore in a nuclear reactor. Used to make radiation potion.


    Nuclear Waste: They are completely useless, and just takes up space. If they are near plants, grassblocks, or mobs, it will slowly damage them with .5 hearts per second. They are best against facing a bunch of hostile mobs and storing them in chests or thrown in lava.


    Nuclear Explosion: They are huge explosions that are 100 blocks radius and form a huge crater. Anything in that explosion will get killed. After the explosion, the area will have radiation floating around where anyone in or near it will lose 1 heart per second. This effect lasts 30 Minecraft days. If you look at the explosion, your character goes blind for a minecraft day.


    Hydrogen Creeper: A special type of creeper that creates a nuclear explosion rather then a regular one. Their trade off would be they are really slow due to being really heavy. They look like regular creepers that have a radiation icon on their chests and are really fat.


    Radiation potion: Made by using a uranium rod and water. If consumed, there is a 50% chance you die and 50% chance you get stronger. For the 50% chance it makes you stronger, it will either triple your walking speed, mining speed, strength, defense or some combination of them.


    Nuclear Bomb: Craft it with TNT and uranium. It works like a regular TNT except it makes a nuclear explosion.

    If you get abducted and get experimented on, there is a chance the experiment will benefit you.

    posted a message on Bandits!!!

    Bandits are hostile mobs that spawn in a generated structure called a Bandit Camp. The Bandit Camp has tents made of staircases and beds, with chests, along with bandit spawners. Bandit Camps are generated in any biome as long as there is land. Bandits can also spawn naturally anywhere like hostile mobs. Bandits attacks does 3 hearts per hit and each hit they take an item from you. If they kill you, they take all your items (including what you wear) and make use of them. For example if they steal a potion or a sword, they will use them. If there is a bandit camp nearby, the items may get distributed between nearby bandits.

    Awful comparison. Zombies don't ... nor mess with the terrain?


    Creepers, and Endermen mess with the terrain.

    posted a message on Aliens!

    Minecraft should add a new mob called an alien. They would be a neutral mob that flies UFO's and can abduct mobs and gather blocks. The UFO's would spawn at render distance and flies around and abducts stuff. If you get abducted, they will do experiments on you which anything can happen to you. They also spawn on the ground and when provoked, they will shoot lasers which is an insta kill if it hits. If you kill an alien, you get their gun. They may also build an alien spaceport to make UFO's. There will be a rare occasion (five times the rarity of rain) that there will be an alien invasion where many UFO's spawn and try to shoot you from the air along with villagers. A bunch of aliens spawn on the ground and become hostile mobs and try to kill you and villagers.

    I support this. Maybe have it not rain at the exact same time throughout the whole map (excluding dry biomes which dont rain at all).
