Cubes have been a part of Minecraft since it was first created, with other shapes - spheres in particular - long thought to be both impossible, and out of place. However, the recent Snapshot revealed a curious quirk in game mechanics that would let you create spheres, rings, and other similar shapes using a trick of redstone, as demonstrated by Logdotzip. Give it a look, and see what you can come up with yourself!

This would be awesome. Spheres, smaller blocks, different shapes, it will be game breaking!

Could they eventually have smoother shaped terrain?

Sweet, unfortunately not possible in survival without command blocks, but still cool that maps can now have spheres in them

This feature is so... [b]POINT[/b]less.

I don't think Mojang intended for minecarts to get a[b]ROUND [/b]like this.

Quite interesting and cool, but still, Minecraft is Cubes, not spheres.

How in the world do you set a the minecarts perfectly in a ring, let alone a sphere?!
