I think jeb_ should make a huge block update, some generating blocks, some usefull blocks and of course many  decorative blocks.

This is way to general to get anything out of. Also this is the recent update discussion area not the suggestion area(although I'm not sure this even fits there).

Quite a few decorative blocks were added recently. Of which upsidedown stairs are my favorite :)
My next decorative wish would be vertical halfblocks.

I think they should just keep adding them when the appropriate time comes.  It would be weird for them to just add a bunch of blocks that most likely won't have a unique purpose other than building.

The upsidedown halfblocks were the latest I think and they have been greatly used by me since they were implemented. There couldn't really bee too many blocks in minecraft :) but I read that jeb wants a purpose for the blocks BEFORE he implements them, this is horrible thinking if you ask me but, whatever :/

Smooth-stone stairs anyone?
Columns?
Ramps? (for making real pyramids?)
Lapis stairs, slabs?
Iron, gold, Diamond stairs, slabs?

of course they were, but then on the outside were diagonal blocks or ramps, guess we'd need a capstone too (gold of course)

There will never be ramps in vanilla mc and you can quote me on that. the outside of pyramids are not diagonal blocks, where do you get your information?

Now that we have practically unlimited block IDs, why not?

Pyramids are not made of ramps. They are made of large blocks of stone. When you see those pictures of the pyramids, they are taken from very far away, which gives you the illusion of a ramp.

On topic, I'd like more new blocks in generated structures. Perhaps an NPC castle every once in awhile, or an abandoned swamp/jungle house.
I've been a Minecraft player since Beta 1.7, still my favorite game!

The outside caps of pyramids were carved into smooth ramplike blocks.

Slabs and Slopes would ruin the BLOCK part of the game, but I think stuff like different trees to add more colorfull logs and planks would be sweet. Maybe different type of stones?

You should make your own thread about these ideas. I love them all except ramps, they remove my blocky vision of Minecraft.

Slabs are already implemented into the game, unless... WHO FUCKED WITH MY CLIENT???
