I have the XBOX 360 version of Mincraft and I think the following ideas would be a very cool addition. Feel free to tell me what you think...
1> Glass/Stained glass stairs, slabs, fences, ladders, gates, and doors. The translucent blocks are among the coolest looking in the game and it would very cool to be able to create entire castles or fortresses entirely out of them with no opaque blocks at all. Excellent for a sky fortress. Also, ladders or at least glass ladders should be able to cling to glass/stained glass blocks.
2> As part of suggestion one, I would suggest the glass rod be introduced. Apart from being a crafting ingredient for some new translucent items, they could also be the basis for crafting suggestion #3.
3> Wands: Wands could be created by using a glass rod and a gemstone and they could be imbued with potion effects using a cauldron. Diamond wands could hold negative potion effects, Emerald wands with other potion effects, and Lapis wands with both. Wands could be recharged either using the same potions that they were created with or left on top of a burning netherrack for an extended period of time. Wands would hold up to 3 effects which would not change, and activating the wand would use 1 charge of all effects at once.
4> Villager House Assignment. Villagers could be provided name tags, and when night time comes, instead of looking for the nearest registered door, the villager would look first for the nearest sign with his name on it and head there, then look for the nearest house to take cover in. Assigned villagers would also tend to linger near their sign. This could be useful for finding specific villagers in largely populated villages, and for numerous villager driven creations.
5> Paint. Ever wanted the properties of a certain block, but not the look? How nice would it be to have an obsidian fortress that isn't a giant black ominous blob? Paint is the answer. A variation on the dye/tint mechanics, paint could be applied to virtually any common building block, including, but not limited to, sandstone, smooth sandstone, cobblestone, stone, obsidian, quartz, redstone blocks, slime blocks, sand, glowstone (which would allow for light to come through like when carpet is on top), gold, and iron. Paint could also be applied to stairs, slabs, fences/walls, gates, doors and ladders. A sponge could be used to revert blocks to their unpainted form.
6> Obsidian, Quartz, gold, and iron fence/wall, gate, stairs, ladders, doors, and slabs. When you want to build something out of a certain material, you may want it all to be built out of that material, either for aesthetic purposes or functional ones.
This thread is for discussing ideas to be added to Vanilla PC Minecraft only. Minecraft for Xbox360 has it's own section for suggestions, which can be found here.
You can report this thread, and ask a moderator to move it to the right section for you (just make sure it isn't breaking any forum rules)
Indeed, but just a reminder that it doesn't have to be the OP reporting their own thread to get it moved, anyone can report it for breaking any rules (also, being in the wrong section won't result in a warning unless it is something like spamming server advertisements). So if you see a thread breaking the rules, please report it in addition to telling the OP what they did and how they can fix it. It guarantees that a staff member sees it.
I will move this to the correct section, but they have the same rules about wishlists as our section, so I'm going to lock it before sending it that way. Please ensure you keep a suggestion thread limited to a single idea or closely related ideas.
