Did anyone ever ponder on making a very very large minecraft creature? One that can jump around 5-10 blocks, is around 10-20 blocks in height, possibly length. Has a pretty large FOV (field of view) and is rather hard to kill? Being its main ability to destroy blocks and in the process damage the player.
Think of it as a "boss". Make them semi-rare. So after building a large building/base this rare creature appears only to wreck havok on your base. Your purpose to fend it off, by using arrows, or getting gutsy with a lot of food on hand and going face to face.
First question would really be - is this possible? The size of the Ogres in the "Mo'creatures" mode are rather large in size. They are fun to encounter too because they literally tear a hole in your base you get at you and once the battle is over you have a base to repair.
What do you think? It would add a little more purpose to the game - that is to build a base for protection, gather supplies, and fight it off when it comes by. When it dies, it can drop diamond tools, golden apples, etc.
Technically speaking it will get "more attention" because it is in a place where everyone is capable of seeing it. Whereas in a thread that already has over 180 replies, it'll never really go noticed, so your logic is incorrect.
Although I wasn't aware there were many threads created about the same topic, I was sure a few may have been but not a lot to the point of annoyance.
