Hmm, if I call it Black Obsidian ******* then there have to be other color, no? I like what you did with the names though, I'll see what I can come up with. The spirit of dead obsidian... lol I get back with a name. I Sorta want to make it where he only spawns on or around obsidian too.
You would really do that? Thank you! I am terrible with photoshop and Paint.NET or even being creative lol
I;m going to make a major change to the recipes, I realized when playing that the obsidian shovel takes 2 diamond to make when the normal recipe cost for a diamond shovel is one... I never did anything specific with diamond rods so I will take them out. I'll post a updated version either later in the day or tomorrow.
I'm guessing it will be fairly soon. If you haven't already, you should check out the snapshot.
Also, I was noticing that, while the tools are balanced by the need for diamonds, the armour isn't. Obsidian is really easy to obtain, and for the armour to be as good as diamond or better seems a bit unbalanced. Maybe you could require obsidian blocks (3x3 obsidian in the crafting bench), or somehow refine obsidian using a valuable item like diamonds to make obsidian ingots.
In retrospection, although the diamonds do balance out the power of obsidian tools, maybe two diamonds should make one stick instead of two, just to even things out a little more.
Just my thoughts on the matter; don't feel obligated to follow any of it.
That's what I was thinking too, but then that would equal to a whole lot of diamonds being used and I would have to make the obsidian even stronger. Right now obsidian is only 20% stronger and faster than diamond. The armor is still a work in progress though.
