Well, what we can safely deduce from this, is that there will be some new generated structures in the future, probably in desert biomes. And that it will most likely be linked to the mysterious desert wells that popped up, and have yet to be commented on by either Jeb or Jon.
I doubt the mystery surrounding the desert wells is accidental. Pay attention guys, I sense something big coming. Something that has been kept under wraps on purpose, either to surprise us or because they were not sure whether they wanted to do it yet. I think the adding of this texture is confirmaion that they are moving ahead with this secret project, whatever it is...
As long as they get their foot in the door, unlike red dragons..

I wonder if a new mob will be involved if they add ruins..

Its almost as they are setting it up for 1.3 so we can have mummy's.

I hope you are correct. Mummies would be awesome.

The block on the right also could be a dust devil type mob. Sort of like a blaze but in the overworld and only in deserts.

My opinion: Desert dungeons or strongholds.
There's nothing here

I can't wait, I hope they add pyramids or catacombs!

I'm thinking desert temples are coming, not quite as large as strongholds but significantly larger than a dungeon.

When I saw it I thought it could be like the stone slabs, that have a different texture than the stone block. I'm afraid I didn't get the texture when adding two sandstone slabs together though :P

It's nice having some non-brick artificial textures added.


If I see further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
Hey Jon, what about Giant Mobs, like the old giant, and the spider-for-screenshot Jeb made? They could be rare, like spider jockeys. Let's see the Golems fend off those =]

Who here remembers the Brick pyrmids?

Maybe these 2 new blocks are wall carvings (looks like it).

But jens, Before adding Pyrmids/temples, Please finish off the Strongholds.

First post with the new updated forums, looks nice.
Back on topic, i'm feeling some kind of abandoned structure similar to villages before they added villagers.
Me and some friends decided so start our own comedy series, please watch! :D

If it was in terrain.png, I doubt it somewhat, though you never know.

But that's one thing I love about Jeb_.  He adds new things.  A lot.

The heiroglyphs show a creeper, a block, an eye, and a person (steve?) the other block looks more like a 2d cutaway view of a pyramid with an antepyramid burrowed under the ground.
