-Revert 1.7's temperature mechanic and the terrain gen to pre-1.7.
-Gut the upcoming name change and texture changes.
-Make the Nether and End more interesting. They're good, but they could be amazing.
-Add more content to Oceans and Rivers.
-Enhance caverns, revert the cave changes to 1.6 levels, add more exclusively underground content, including mobs. Seriously, for a game called Minecraft, there sure is a lackluster amount of underground content. (Not adding ores unless there's a use for them. Not this silly Ruby armor crud.)
-Adding new rail content, and allow Minecarts to connect to one-another like a train. Minecarts have been powercreeped big time, and new rail vehicles would spice things up.
-Put the financial backbone to use, and push out great updates within a decent time span like the old days. Seriously, an update the size of 1.4 nowadays would take years.
-The sounds 1.4 changed to this day still sound uncharacteristic. I'd probably be undoing that if I had my way.
I'm sure I've missed a few things on my mind, but if I arbitrarily was appointed head developer, changes like this would be seen.
