I was playing Super Mario Bros. 2, and going through the desert levels, when I realized how awesome quicksand would be in Minecraft.

Slightly darker colored sand blocks that fall, just like regular sand blocks.  Standing on one of these sand blocks will cause you to sink slowly down, threatening suffocation.  You can escape a quicksand block by jumping repeatedly, which will keep you above the surface enough to make your way back to the edge.

Quicksand would also allow for some great traps.

It would allow for some great traps, yes. I could very easily see quicksand traps surrounding some sort of desert fortress.

It sucks that sand can't float, and there's not a block that players can pass through, but not other blocks, so i can't do something like this... (sand = quicksand and soil = normal sand)

and leave treasures for people stupid/adventurous enough to go into quicksand

EDIT: BREAKTHROUGH! It's called a torch.

So really all we need is a block that players can go through, but nothing else...

Would quicksand be able to be produced by putting water with sand, or would mineing it be plentyful enough?

So then...

:Teal: = Sky/Air

:cobblestone: = Cobblestone
:Glass:  = Glass
:Notch:
:Notch: = Player
:Yellow: = Quicksand
:sand: = Sand
:Lava: = Lava
:stone: = Stone



Basically, you make a moat of quicksand, with a wall of cacti next to it, protecting your house. Anything that comes towards your house steps in quicksand and starts falling through it. If they keep trying to move forward, they get hit by Cacti. If they stay in place, they sink, and get burnt by Lava. Their only choice, for survival, is staying away.
