Finally we can plant more than one type of tree

Though they could have also made trees grow differently in different biomes instead of seperate trees, that would free up space for newer items.

There is a Piston mod that is PROBABLY going to be added to the game,

Basicly it adds a block that extends when you power it with redstone, it can shoot players / items / sand / gravel an push other blocks.

While not sounding too exciting from just that, ppl have made regenerating walls / bridges with it, hidden bookshelf-entrences. Transportation systems... I suggest you check youtube for more information :iapprove:

You can't see sun/moon/stars while it's raining, and days are one level darker.

this threat should be reported!
It is just criminal for this post to be NOT stickied! Shame on whoever did not sticky this!

Sorry, just a brain fart.

What I meant to say was, keep up the good work :)
