I really like the tool/ore suggestions, they would actually add something really nice to the game.
However, some of the mobs suggested are just insane.
Let me start with the ghast: Ghasts can currently be killed with one hit of their own fireball, I don't want this to change, it's hard enough to hit it back without the ******* moving.
Troll: Pretty tough, and honestly not overpowered, but throwing blocks/hitting you into the ground removes (potentially necessary)blocks from the world without (much) player intervention, causing imminent death in many cases.
Glutton: I see where you're coming from, but stealing my items isn't something a cheeseburger should do.
The idea of midas tears changing stuff into gold is kind of annoying, but I guess that's the point.
I approve with enthusiasm for everything other than some of the mobs(which I mentioned).
Woah you really did put a lot of information into this topic.
I really like the idea of a emergency portal and glowstone post.
Also here is my suggestion. That there should be ores in the nether. I don't know if that has been suggested on this post but I am sure it's a great idea. I'm sure you could come up with some ideas for the ores. I also know that there is at least one suggestion about adding ores to the nether in the suggestion section.
Is this topic alive any more? It seems like all of GreyAcumen and Sabata's ideas are dying... I support, though.
Probably because neither of them have been active on the forum since January (about 5-6 months ago.)
Ever since Notch's official Nether change we both threw our hands in the air and said "**** it".
I'm looking forward to getting some details on the Halloween update coming, but with the new "black skeletons" it's pretty clear the dev team prefers the "Nether Update" idea set over Grey and mine.
I'm glad to see that you guys are still keeping this thread alive though.
I was fully expecting to see a "Last post - January", but I've been thoroughly surprised.
I'll let Grey know you all are still fighting for our ideas. I doubt anything will come from it, but he should enjoy it just as I have.
Yofreke has moved on to building his own games, while I'm just trying to hold down a job. But we all talk every so often.
Who knows, If Notch ever gets that modding interface implemented we might come back.
I will say this, I like the idea of a new tier of tools. However, the idea of Overworld tools loosing double durability sounds kind of lame. I could see if they were made to mine excessively slowly, but thats just me. as for the new mobs, I think the salamander should also appear in the Overworld, the Troll should appear exclusively in the Overworld, but again, thats just me. I would like to see some kind of Nether bat, but perhaps a flaming bat from hell is a bit cliche.
Looking though the OP, I have to say, I love this idea, it would be awesome to have. Currently all Mojang is doing is adding random things into Minecraft, no set goal but to add randomness to it. We need to move forward with an expansion like this. I support the idea.
