Can we get some form of mini fortress/outpost structure(between witch hut to medium village house size) that spawns either a completely new mob or some form of bound box silverfish that drop nether dust to craft into quartz, that way we can create a farm for it, its the only farm id want to go out of my way to build asap.
There is much to be said for making resources renewable…
Netherquartz is a particularly interesting case because of the competition for this resource by disparate groups (builders seeking one of the nicer set of 'luxury' blocks and redstoners needing it as a raw material for components.)
Given the current (1.13+, but especially 1.14) climate of changes, with MS/Mj apparently out to grief resource farming, even were the idea to be exquisitely detailed and so perfectly balanced that it was universally acclaimed the best idea since considerably before sliced bread [pistons for those not old enough to 'get' the cultural reference], adding the ability to farm a resource would seem destined to die unwanted by corporate MS/Mj.
Seeing the idea detailed enough that someone in the modding community could run with it would be great, but hopes for MS/Mj to do anything with it seem slim unto nonexistence.
