I'm really not that excited for biomes. As for the spawn point, I'm hoping beds will be implemented, so you'll "wake up" in your bed.
Actually, I'd like to see beds implemented as a "fast-forward" through night, so you
wouldn't have to wait for morning.
Honestly though, I eventually want a hunger system :3
But yes, Biomes should accomplish the goal of improving the map generator, creating diversified and realistic environments, without looking odd or strange. In addition I eventually want weather X3 (But notch said it won't be this time around :/)
Jefe, forests sound completely plausible as a biome :biggrin.gif:.
I wouldn't give up hope so soon.
But I don't know how in-depth they will get. The current biomes are obvious (snow, forests, beaches, plains, etc.). But then again what can he do to make even more distinct biomes. Sand everywhere = desert? I mean I guess that will be cool but to be productive in that type of environment Notch will either need to add more objects for each biome or you will need to walk to another biome to get materials you need. If he made say...volcanoes, it's just a bunch of stone built on top of eachother with lava inside. Besides it being TOTALLY FREAKIN AWESOME you can't do much with it besides collect lava and stone if needed.
My point here is that if you were to spawn near a biome that doesn't have that many resources (trees, dirt, etc.) you are kinda stuck. If there were to be more biomes, Notch needs to make a hell of a lot more block types.
