I definitely agree with you. I too don't complain much, but just imagine a cow egg! Just a tad too far! I think notch is trying to make things too complex, and he should just keeps things simple. Let the animals mate at the most and that's it.
How is an egg too complex? Thats like saying the chicken farming system is complex. It's far simpler for an animal to just lay an egg than for you to have to feed them, and then wait for them to breed, and then raise the baby and finally slaughter them. I'd rather the chicken approach taken for all passive mobs as its quick and simple.
Eggs are a great idea. have you ever thought it's a way to find rare monsters in dungeon chests? or would you rather find a fetus, then have to find a female version of the animal and implant it into its womb? I think the only one here that is an idiot is the person who cares SOOO much that animals will breed from eggs
Can you imagine how tasty pig eggs would be if they existed? I mean and egg that would come from the same animal that produces the "holy grail" of meats known as bacon?! Tastebuds would be blown awaayyy!
Notch.. make this happen. All in the name of tasty deliciousness.
1. Please edit your post because complaints hold no merrit if they mangle the language they are written in.
2. Chicken eggs are good but no mammals should lay eggs, make the breeding like Baby Animals.
