Have you ever needed to quickly sketch out a concept for Minecraft? We may have found the answer to your problem.

Minedraft is a web application created by Alex Cline that allows you to quickly and easily prototype your creations. This allows for much larger and complex creations to be designed without the headache!

There are a plethora of blocks that you can use, as well as mobs and other well-known Minecraft creatures that will complete the look.

When you're ready to show off your creation, Minedraft provides you with a link to share your creations with others. Here's the URL for one that we've made above: http://minedraft.net...7f79220b4000002

[color="#000080"]This is actually very nice.

It allows people to show a concept of there creations or new mod idea's or whatever they find nice.
Also very nice to make pixelart.

Could be very nice if you could somehow combine for example 5 images to create a 3d model, which you could upload to lets say MCedit. Or something.. but its really nice:P [/color]

Looks good!<br /><br />Now it's going to be much easier to explain certain designs, especially when it's about redstone. No more need for roses and mushrooms resembling torches and redstone dust.<br /><br />I'm definitely going to use this, maybe you can also add a link to the website in the comment field? That would make it a bit easier. <br /><br /><br />Hmm why are there these HTML tags in my comment?

For some reason, when ever I place a large amount of blocks, maybe something like 50, it starts to lag a lot for me. For example, I loaded up the one that is above, and it took a good 25 seconds for me to place something. Is anyone else having this problem.

It's impractical, unwieldly, and inelegant.  It's also only a 2d slice of what goes on.  This is akin to a refrigerator drawing on some 2nd grader's mom's icebox.

So you feature tools made by us now? Awesome :D<br /><br />As of the application, it's kind of glitchy, the interface is decent but I really can't see the use for it, especially considering it's missing one dimension...

Useful for showing others how to build a structure. (Mob traps, obsidian farms, etc.) Just do bird's eye view diagrams of each level. 3D modeling would be useful but this is handy until someone comes up with a 3D version.

Looks nice, but I wont use it. It's only 2d and paint can do this job as well.

This will definitely save me some time. I'm not that skilled at visualizing in my head before building, so I usually sketch it out on paper first. This seems much easier and more accurate than trying to sketch a bunch of cubes to scale, or using graphing paper.

I can see how some people wouldn't consider it useful with missing the third dimension, but being able to see if, say, your log cabin base would look better with all wood planks, or be better with all birch wood [i]before[/i] you actually build it seems like a good use to me.

It was at least worth bookmarking. I don't think I'll be using it, though, as there are<br />better things out there like the structure planner application.

Pretty decent for showing ideas over the forums. But it's not very good for elaborate planning. Also Power rails and detector rails seem to have been omitted.<br />

I bet someone will get the code, make a mod, and release it as a terrairia mod xD
