Player Skulls?

Posted Image


Many things have been revealed in recent Snapshots, from a new monster, to decorative stone fences, and the awesome beacon block.  Something that's been drawing a lot of attention lately is decorative heads - such as the skeleton, creeper, and zombie - which can be placed like a sign, to gloat over victories achieved in combat.  Recently, Dinnerbone posted the picture above, strongly suggesting the possibility of player-dropped heads.

Will they fall in combat?  Can they only be added for adventure maps?  Time will tell.

On a positive note, it's good to see Dolan's head finally hanging on a wall.

never ... i hope it at least :)
most mods have problems with the internal server-client split (e.g. zeppelin) but when this problem is solved by the APIs (modloader etc and maybe in the future the MCM-API) all mods will come back

Player heads?  Blocks that shoot light up into the air?  Decorative fences?  

Come on guys, that is kinda useless stuff.  Lets get some additional camera perspectives, new biomes, new interactions between existing game content, *insert 100 more useful things here*

I want to put Vechs' head on my wall. It will make me feel so much better after I come back from another disastrous effort at waking up.

[/quote]Yeah, like being able to control saddled pigs, or a new nether enemy, or new potions, or even a new boss!
