The goal is to list every single new feature you get when buying the game. BE AS SPECIFIC AS POSSIBLE!

Expand the list for these items:
- Tools, weapons and items
- New block types
...And anything else in the actual list that you can expand on.

THE LIST:

GET ALL OF THIS AND MORE FOR ONLY HALF-PRICE WHEN YOU BUY THE GAME IN ALPHA, AND GET ALL THE FUTURE EXPANSIONS FREE!!!

- Custom skins
- Access to all game versions - e.g. Suvival Test, Indev, Infdev, and now Alpha/SMP.
- Infinite maps
- Inventory
- Crafting
- Farming
- cacti
- crops
- papyrus
- dynamic trees and saplings
- Caves
- Boats
- Doors
- ladders
- signs
- fences
- Minecarts
- Powered Minecarts (automated transportation)
- Storage Minecarts (the ability to move your base with you)
- Minecart Tracks
- Switches
- levers
- pressure plates
- Regular updates
- Scary caves and sounds
- Your creativity is your limit
- Redstone
- Latches
- Logic gates
- automated doorways
- combination locks
- direction-changing minecart tracks
- traps (TNT, pit, etc)
- clocks
- lighting you can turn on/off
- Mining
- Stone
- Coal
- Iron
- Gold
- Diamond
- Obsidian
- Mossy Stone
- Creepers that blow up in your face.

ORIGINAL POST:

I've been thinking about this for a while, and I would really like to try it out.

What I want to do is make a HUGE list of absolutely everything there is in minecraft alpha/a premium game account that there is not in minecraft classic. I think that this would really help persuade people to buy the game, and be really fun to make as well.

And, [meme]It would show how infinitely talented and wonderful Notch is.[/meme]

Memes aside, what I was thinking this thread would be used like this: People will reply with every feature that they can think of in minecraft alpha. Every time someone replies, I will add it to the list in this post, and eventually we will have the completed list to look at in awe. There will be no repeated features, either, so we can see how long we can make it.

If you like the idea, please contribute! It is for the good of all minecraftopia! (sorry, that will be the last meme.)

It really depends how deep in we get, but by seeing you listing custom skins, I'll start with other features are such a simple level.

2. Access to all game versions - e.g. Suvival Test, Indev, Infdev, and now Alpha.

I hear if you buy it now it is half price plus you will get all of the next updates expansions and all the rest FREE!!! so if you buy now you will not have to buy anything else for the game.

Yep!

Also, unless anyone wants to keep this thread going, I'm allowing the mods to lock it. We got a good list, and it will be useful to show people just how awesome minecraft is, but it's a dying thread anyway.

Now make an image for every one of them, tile them, and have each one clickable for a short explanation.
One cool webpage.

Edit: I'm now working on this. If anyone wants to work UP the list, making 32x32 icons, do it.
