Ok, I was thinking this could be sort of an "official" thread in this section specifically for requesting options and preferences for Minecraft on the Xbox 360. It will also be more convenient for 4j studios to go through, instead of searching the countless threads I predict for this section. This is mainly for stuff that can be altered in the game's settings.
For example, I had the idea of the following options in creative mode (and possibly host privileges for adventure maps):
Having an option to turn off mob griefing and mob drops (like the PC has)
Having an option to turn off mob spawning altogether
An option to change the time as the need arises
An "always day" and "always night" option, for the people who don't want to have to sleep every 10 minutes just to have light.
These options can be for creative mode or survival mode. So if you have any ideas, no matter how crazy they might be, go ahead and share them here!
I would like to see the "can build and mine" option split up. Some maps may benefit it from players being able to place blocks, but not mine them and vice versa.also I would like to see more options to moderator like "creative mode enabled/disabled" or "can change time" having some players in survival mode with others in creative mode could be really useful. Lets say a hunger games map, if you die you may want to spectate? Well have the host give you moderator powers, allow moderators to turn invisible then bam nobody will notice, super effective for all kinds of maps.
Also I find it kind of annoying that on a world we can not choose our spawn point for players who just joined. I would LOVE to see the host of a game be able to stand on a block, push a button or even a combination of buttons and have players spawn on that block instead if a large area possibly far away.
Biome Selection - Check the boxes of all the biomes you want in your world. Say I want a Jungle, Extreme Hills, river, and ocean; it would only spawn those biomes in the world, so you don't have to go through tons of seeds to find "your perfect seed."
i really like the biome selecter. and the day nite options. along with the mine/build and spectate options. i think we shld get a text box and teleport. like the pc has and change of how far we can see. those are the things i want that i can think of
I also think that since there were a number of people who wanted baby wolves to stay untamed so that they can be given to another player, there should be an "option" (not a switchable option, but an option to do this while playing) to make newborn wolves untamed. Here's how it'd work:
If you just want another dog for yourself and don't want to waste the bones, you can use meat on two of your own dogs and the baby will be tamed.
If you're playing with other people, you can give meat to one of your dogs and another player can feed another of your dogs, and the baby will be untamed, and only need one bone in order to be tamed (or you could just LT the puppy to tame it)
I know it's a little complicated, but it would be beneficial to those who want to give away dogs.
