Does anyone else cower in there house at night? It seems to me like a waste of gameplay spent stuck inside your dwelling. Or am I doing something wrong gameplay wise? At least until Notch adds holdable light-filled torches :D

It shouldn't be a dramatic change.

Day: 20 minutes
Night: 10/15 minutes

As has been mentioned I count 4 times recently, Notch has said he will NEVER add mobile light, as that would require despawning and respawning a torch with every step you take.

Night expeditions! Yay! Just watch your back.

---> If you don't like the fact that enemies spawn during the night, play Peaceful? :/
"I want to see forum posts saying "how do i kill dragon" with replies reading "lol"."
---> vede claimed Notch said this (and it is awesome).

I'd rather it be the opposite to enforce the survival aspect, and have more time of MC day I like!

I agree, while night can be fun I think there is too much of it. The days need to be longer.

On easy their could be longer days and shorter nights, and on hard their could be longer nights and shorter days.

Eh, I'd rather have day/night options.

It would help you transition mode to mode, like long night and medium day, with easy mode would help you in transitioning to normal mode with medium day, and short night.

I agree that day and night should not be equal length, day 20 minutes, night 10/15 would be fine.

Also there was another idea about sleeping that sounded nice, so if you don't really wanna do anything during the night then you can just go sleep to make time pass faster.

To be fair, TO EVERYONE, let there be day/night length options.

I would love there to be long nights, and longs days, and you want shorter nights, and normal days, and others want other assortments, so let everyone have what they want, OPTIONS.
