Ok,I know a lot of suggestions for higher power TNT have been suggested,I mean who doesn't want the ability to blow half a map up with 1 tnt?
But I was hoping that if such a thing were introduced,like say nuclear tnt,then using to many could have profound effects on your world.
For example,using 3 nuclear tnt within 3 minecraft months could cause a nuclear winter-an awesome but at the same time terrible event that destroys all trees except tundra and taiga trees(adapted to cold temperatures),decreases animal spawn by 100%,and plants can only be grown indoors with artificial light sources like glowstone,torches,etc.It would also make it dark as night everywhere.This event would last 6 minecraft months(I know a real one would be WAY longer but for the sake of gameplay).
I think the reason something like this would be awesome for xbox 360 is because the map has limits so instead of fleeing to another chunk,you're forced to deal with the consequences of your lust for blowing stuff up.
Oh and last thing,snow and ice will pile up everywhere(YAY WINTER!).
Thanks for reading I hope you like this idea and PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEAZ......critisize
This has 'Griefer' written all over it for multi-player....
You've added some design complexities that do not currently exist in the game, specifically the map wide biome shift for 6 months if 3 bombs are detected as well as the killing off of every tree that is not adapted for cold weather climates.
Although I do not think that this would be too overly hard to implement, it is a little bit against the grain of the current game design. Designers are balking at adding guns, so I doubt they will give much serious thought to tactical nuclear devices.
TNT was added to Minecraft (I believe) because it is seen frequently as a mining tool, the game centered around mining, and a sandbox game second. the Nuclear idea doesn't really fit well into either of those genre's in general.
