Witch Huts


First of all, yes I DO know that there are other threads about this and that Dinnerbone has a similar idea.  I was not aware of it when I made this thread.  Please still take a look at my designs!


A simple idea, but one that I think would be really cool for the game.  I think witches should spawn in solitary huts in swamp biomes, where they live a hermit-like lifestyle and brew potions.  The little huts should generate (very rarely, since they have a lot of materials) with cauldrons and occasionally brewing stands.  I think witch huts could add some spice to a currently rather boring biome.

Concept Pictures:

Posted ImageAbove: A fence around the house would fit the witch's solitary lifestyle.

Posted ImageAbove: The interior of the house, with a cauldron, brewing stand, and chest.

Posted ImageAbove: Note the erratic placement of redstone torches for lighting.

Posted ImageAbove: The chest would contain brewing supplies and rarely finished potions.

Posted ImageAbove: The pointed roof is made to look similar to a witch hat.  The shape was inspired by the Baba Yaga house in "Bartok the Magnificent."

Posted ImageAbove: There would have to be a way for the witch to always stay in or near the house.

Remember to thumb up this post if you like the idea! Posted Image

It looks nice, but I think Mojang has an idea for a hut if they do spawn in them. But it looks great, nonetheless.

What don't you like about it?  I can always make changes, I just threw this together in a few minutes based on some ideas I had.

Less mossy and more cobwebs on the outside and it is perfect.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize.  But admittedly our designs are fairly different.  But since we both want witch huts implemented, there isn't a problem with two different threads about it.  You know what they say, two threads are better than one! :)

Um, when i looked at the concept pictures i thought it all looks nice, except the brewing stand, those should require you to go to the nether and build it, not get it from a witch hut, also the walls look very ncie and fit well, but the house should be rickity wooden and on stilits... but thats just my idea of what a witches house would look like.

Still really liking your concept images

lol, like, 4th topic about this and Dinnerbone has already mentioned huts being added

The design, doesn't seem... swamp-y enough. Darker wood, maybe incorporate leaves, netherbrick and netherfence

Only wood on the roof and use stairs rather than planks to make it look less sharp and it looks good.
I'm also not too fond of being able to get a brewing stand from only the overworld.

I tried only wood on the roof, but it looked rather monotone, and I'm going for a run-down, crude look for the hut, as if the witch had patched up the roof with cobblestone.

Brewing stands would have a very small chance of generating with the hut, and the hut itself would have a small chance as well.

I really like this idea good job. I wouldn't have a brewing stand in there though.

Great idea, but dont put brewing stations in it. That would take away one of the Nethers few useful features.
