Alright.. So, I'm going to introduce myself. My names HeKTic_Virus and I've recently join playing the Alpha but I've been playing the Classic online for a couple of weeks. I've just recently brought the Alpha and I was wonder on what type of suggestion I could think of. I sat down and thought to myself, what would be a great idea to improve Minecraft Alpha.. I had a couple of ideas. Here are just a few of them.
Aswell as having Torches glued to the wall, could we have it as an item that we could carry around like a Sword or Pickaxe, that way we would have light in a certain proximity of your character.
Creating our own skin item, like a Can of Coke, Briefcase or even a simple item that stands out in the left or right hand, and run around and so that the other players could see it.
A simple Volcano that would sprout lava would dissapear after a couple of days...
What about different types of weather, like if it rains or a tornado could appear.
Detects if an enemy is close by or if it is targeting you and is about to attack you?
Fish that swim in the water, and being able to catch the fish that swim.
Create traps, that explode, freeze etc againts the dangerous Creepers. Hisss.....
These are the suggestions that I rememberd. If I remember most of the suggestions, I'll be sure to update them. :biggrin.gif:
Some of your ideas have been suggested MANY times before (torches being lit up while carried, Enemy detectors), some of your ideas are already present or in process (You can get fish in certain locations if you use a fishing rod, I think, and you can definitely build your own traps, put a pressure plate on top of a TNT block for your most basic one), other ideas are completely impractical (Minecraft only has so much space for each additional item, Notch would have to provide extra space for people to put their own stuff, and then a ton of extra space for people to put the stuff OTHER people have skinned, otherwise they wouldn't be able to see anyone else's skins) and other ideas are just completely goofy (Since when does a volcano just spout up and then disappear? If it's there, it should be sticking around)
