Now that animals can breed with wheat, squids obviously don't do the same, but they should be able to breed too.

What if you could get a squid to "smell" raw fish as animals do with wheat, and the squid will swim through the water behind you. If you go on land, it will wait on the edge of the ocean.

Right clicking a squid with raw fish will feed it the fish and make it fall in love. Get it to breed with another squid and soon enough: a school of squids!

This would also be useful for squid transportation. We've all tried it, and it rarely works. With breeding and following, you can just swim to the squid's destination.

This also gives fishing another use. Raw fish is pretty forgotten and useless if you ask me.

Defensive System

Now that animals run when you hit them, squids should have their own defensive system. If you hit one, they will squirt ink. If the ink hits you, your screen has a giant ink splatter on it, blocking your view. It will fade over time. After it goes away you will see that the squid swam away from you.

Inc Sacs as potion Ingredients

Inc sacs need a new use, badly. You should be able to use it as a main potion ingredient, creating an Inky Potion which lasts 0:30. Mixing it with redstone dust creates an Inky Potion(1:00). The inky potions force the inky screen splatter effect that squids use as a defensive mechanism. It is a negative effect and will fade when the potion effect is over.

I never said they don't love wheat, I only said that they don't go into some odd romantic trance upon consumption of wheat.

There's almost no point in squid though.

I'm hoping that Notch will eventually make squids drop squid meat and make apples have a 1/8 chance of falling from destroyed leaf blocks. Sheep should also drop meat.

To counter this effect, your hunger bar will decrease faster.

Another thing: Eating ANY type of raw meat should poison you like the rotten meat does, and when you are poisoned, your health should not regenerate + your hunger bar should go down quicker. :Skeleton:

1. This is about squid breeding, post in Small Suggestions with your own ideas.
2. Notch already said sheep won't have meat.
3. Raw Chicken poisons you, but if all raw meat did that, most of us wouldn't survive our first night in Hardcore Mode.

One jokes enough, that's irrelevant to the purpose of this topic. We don't care what you just said - what do you think of the suggestion, constructive criticism, and do you support are all welcome replies.

Please use caps at the beginning of sentences, how many times do I have to repeat it?

I like it, but other than getting ink sacs from them, what do squids have for you?

Also, what non-wool use does an ink sac have?
