Well having been not allowed to post on the forums for the past few days I've observed that there has been a commotion on roses being gone. Here are some random concepts, questions, and crap for you guys.
Me - What justifies roses being removed from the game? Why was it removed? Why should it not be brought back?
I think they should be brought back because
There was really no reason to remove them ( think of it as the accuser should justify their accusation )
* They have been in the game for a long time
* No negative impact from them existing
* The argument that roses shouldn't be in the game anymore due to repetition is
weak as there has already been examples of such repetition (of such small scale) even in the most recent snapshot.
They provided a unique aesthetic building item
* Has unique texture that is different from the poppy and tulip(red).
* Been used as a strong supporting aesthetic for many creations that people make or even the focus of a creation (ex : Rose field/garden ) and varying social function ( Valentines day, love in mc - no do not even start that debate on this thread -, etc. )
* Saying that you could just edit your resource pack to change the name/look of poppy is a weak argument because many people may want all four types of flowers ( rose, rose bush, poppy, red tulip ), on multiplayer it is almost guaranteed the majority of people would not have changed their resource pack, you could apply this logic to Mojang changing default textures to something ( say turn stone rainbow.... ) that may look horrible in the eyes of the community and having it being justified by this logic.
Possible Solutions That I Have seen
- Have both roses and rose bushes generate
- Make it so that bone-mealing rose bushes gives roses and bone-mealing roses gives rose bushes
- Be able to shear roses from rose bushes
So yeah here is my view ( and possibly others ) on the issue of roses
Please keep post civil (respect other people's opinions) and try to keep posts on topic.
I don't think we need the 400 topics discussing the removal of roses. How is this any different from other "Roses were removed" topics?
There isn't that much rose topics on the recent updates & snapshots forums. This probably sounds arrogant and condescending but I wanted to group all the things I've observed and post them in an organized manner in on a clean slate. This topic probably isn't that different from other rose topics except I have just summarized points and added solutions.
erm... yeah I'm not good at responding to posts like yours XD.
