I got some new ideas for Minecraft! More mobs, without the mob. The mobs I was thinking of was, (friendly) would be goats, horses, deer. (Neutrals) Boars (which would appear in deserts) and not much else. (Enemies) Scorpions, like boars in deserts but only in day, sharks, day and night. Here are some extra ideas to improve the game.
Boats: They are to fragile, they break just by shoving them or nicking a corner of a block. Notch should make them sturdier.
Lanterns: Sounds like they are suppose to be hard to make, they should be kept simple. Not as simple as torches, but maybe a glass, coal, and wood, or glass and charcoal. Not to hard, because lighting is VERY important.
Slabs of all Materials: Wool slabs + stone slabs = 2nd floor carpet and stone ceiling, that would be cool.
Dyeing Wood: Since wood and stone make the best walls and roofs, you should be able to put dye on them like you can do with wool.
Chairs: I'm working on a inn right now, (almost complete) I really wanted to make chairs, but the closet I could get was a block and 2 slabs.
Tables: Would look better than just the plane block.
More Ingredients for Stairs: I did try to make stone stairs once, but since you can only use cobblestone and wood for stairs, it failed.
The boats point; agreed. There not sturdy enough, you ram it into land, i get, but just bump or hit or knock, it breaks. Well, coding is not easy, I'm learning Java full steam ahead. Its really cool if you learn what it can do, for it does all of it. For PC only, suck it mak [mac], lol. Good luck Mojang team, u rocked it, now feed me.
Suggest something else, and by better blocks I thought you weren't going to add more blocks. You clearly added a table.
Oh and mob overhaul
I didn't think I was going to add more either, it came to thought while I was typing the post, and I didn't know that ALL of it was suggested, I just came to the forums really quickly to make the post because I think this would make Minecraft cooler, and I also want to craft chairs and tables for my inn. (My inn is now finished, currently wanting to make it a server) I'll go change the name right now.
