Awesome! Though that means that we'll all have to actually explore the floor of the nether now instead of just tunneling through the roof.... Not to mention the fact that we'll need to recreate the nether dimension... But still, more nether variety? Great!
im surprised they didn't make an article on mushroom cows (yes those will be in 1.9,notch posted an image of one)
Huh, I thought they did. Looked around the forum. Props to anyone that finds it :biggrin.gif: But I'm looking forward to new stuff in ther Nether! Soul sand's too hard. Netherrack is like frickin' dirt. Lava a beeyotch. Nether Brick? Dungeon? Nether mineshafts? Nether strongholds? We shall se...

Oh, look at that.
I have seem to have stopped caring.
I'm less impressed by the possibility of a new "brick" type of Nether block, than I am by the form it's laid out in. To me, that looks like a broken bridge. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but bricks indicate crafted blocks. Crafted blocks in large formations suggest structures...and structures open a lot of possibilities.
Possibility of trading zombie meat to zombie pigmen NPCs.
Also, there's the fact that Notch wants to expand upon the Nether before he works any more on the official sky dimension. So, as we see more signs of improvements to the Nether, it seems more likely that we will get an official version of/alternative to the Aether.
I gotta say, this is a little interesting, but not really something that would want me to go to the nether. Especially if i can build the brick blocks out of netherrack. I want to see something like dungeons, chests, bosses, new mobs, and possibly a new gem/item that can be used to craft new weapons/armor. 1.9 I heard is all about the nether, so please don't let it be small.
