    posted a message on Is jeb taking Minecraft in the right direction?
    They've been going down the right path with recent updates in my opinion. The content being added (at least for me) is really impacting gameplay and is adding quite a bit of variety. Even just having colored clay blocks has expanded the possibilities of what's at our disposal. Hopefully in the future they'll add more content to the weaker aspects of the game, like the ocean biomes and villages, but with that being said I really like what they've been implementing lately.

    Personally i think they Mojang should allocate their development resources on advancing the API rather than continuously delaying it.

    I can't argue that. Mods are always a good thing.

    Horse functionality is covered with nethergates and minecarts which will now become more time consuming to build relative to the horse eroding away another feature you have to work for.

    Interesting point, though it's hard to tell what Mojang intends to do with horses (if they do anything at all)

    I would like to for mojang to address the ease of first night experience and try to capture a more authentic survival feel. Early game is overly simplistic. Still i think too many people have too many different ideas of what MC is and those with the loudest voice don't want a survival game, they want a sandbox or Lego set. In this case i think it's best to accelerate the Mod API so minecraft can diverge into a different experience for various tastes because you will simply not be able to satisfy everybody by adding extraneous features from popular mods as many mods have tremendously conflicting philosophy resulting in no synergy and balance between them.

    If the Mod Api never does come around and you feel like Minecraft is missing that "rugged survival" feel then I would recommend the game Don't Starve. I'm not saying quit Minecraft, but if it isn't giving you the gameplay you expect then you have something else that meets your needs.

    Having nethergates and minecarts already grants us quick transit. Having dr Zharks mod integrated dilutes that aspect making it less relevant.

    Honestly I'd like Dr Zhark to help make harder vanilla mobs for Minecraft over horses, but I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't consider it. I'm not talking about more bosses, but more basic enemy variety.

    All options come at a cost. Something must be sacrificed to bring you horses. Advocates for horses must say nothing could possible be added to MC that is better than horses but would require comparable development time.

    In all honesty I wouldn't know what else to add to Minecraft, but if they say their going to add horses then I might as well go with it. It's a feature that has been requested for a long time and at this point there's no point in trying to change their minds (if their adding horses at all). If you know of a feature that should be added over horses then by all means tell them, but I personally couldn't care what they add as long as it's free content.

    If done right yes. But the horse is probably going to be superior to the pig, making optional paths negatively impact gameplay and balance, and that is bad game design.

    Considering the pig is more of a goof mount, no it's not bad game design. A pigs primary use is for food, just because you can ride it shouldn't make it competitive (speedwise) with a horse.

    I however wouldn't be opposed to the pig having an extra feature that the horse doesn't, like small saddlebags so it could be used as a labor animal that can cart goods, or as a mining companion.

    If you don't want to ride horses then go ride a pig. It's as simple as that. No one is going to force you to ride a horse, but if you do get tired of walking and feeling at a disadvantage then you could always go get a pig. I'll probably have both just for the sake of making a diverse stable.

    Aren't optional paths in games fun?!? You'd think so, but this community makes me have my doubts....

    posted a message on How Can I Stop Being "Perfect"?
    You might want to focus on building structures out of simple shapes like circles and squares. That way you can keep them "perfect" without a huge strain on yourself and spend the extra time doing other things.

    So what's the issue people are having with this buff? If it gets too hard for you then turn your difficulty down. No ones going to persecute you for playing on a lower difficulty.

    Quote from Phycozz

    It's been popular for the last 3 years, why would it just go away in a couple months? Although I love the game, I find it annoying when people constantly talk about it, most of the time being complete newbies...

    The game itself won't, but the majority of the fan base will lose interest and newer players will start picking it up. That's not to say all the old players will go away, but extremely "dedicated" fans like that tend to be a minority.

    It's just a fad. Give it a couple of months and they'll move on to the next thing to obsess about.
