Read the subtitle, you get backstory and such. Thats covered, so now ideas.
One: The Fireplace.
Its much built makeshiftly, theres probably another thread saying to do something like this, but oh well. An actual fireplace would go much in the way of showoffy awesomeness. HEres a recipe:
Three things about this.
First, assume red wool is actually a magically transformed version of netherrack.
Three: The seeds are meant to be blank spaces that arent in the recipe.
Two: Fire Jet.
Flint and steel and stone. Or just put a flint in steel in a dispenser and get the same thing. Thatd be the best way to do it.
Make an actual cannon block that doesnt use tnt. Only gunpowder. No more needs be said.
Four: Customizability increase.
This would not apply to everything, only certain things like doors, slabs, stairs, and beds bases, as well as buttons and pressure plates and maybe fences.
Im not saying they should have this any time soon, im saying that maybe after 1.8 they could have this as the final update before full release. 1.9 update could have a ton of furniture and such, including fireplaces that could make your house look nicer.
Bars (the table-like things, not the beer bars) would be nice too.
Another cool thingd be dressers, where you could maybe store skins and change them in game at will, although your normal skin (mine is king arthur, monty python style) would be returned to after you leave the game.
A lot of people are asking for display cases, thatd be awesome.
Tables, of course.
Fences made specifically for staircases, like bannisters.
And lets not forget statues. Make a statue, which would start like a monolith. You attack it with a pickaxe and a menu would appear asking you what to change it to. It could be Notch, Jeb, A creeper, a skeleton, or you. Or customizable, although that would be difficult and waste space as well as be very tricky and likely ugly with only pixels, and large ones at that.
So many others. If you have an idea, post it here, and ill consider putting it up.
Mod Edit: Locked due to having multiple ideas in one thread
This thread == Wishlist
Wishlists != Acceptable
This thread != The Rules.
Its not a wishlist, its a list of ideas that i personally think would improve minecraft (or at least add some more lines to the code. Minecraft is hard to make better, you know.) and so on. I have a lot of ideas, and if i never say them the voices get angry with me. When the voices are angry bad things happen... :unsure.gif:
But its not a wishlist, i dont think so. If you can get a moderator/5 people to agree with you, then i will take it off immediately. If not, 1st Amendment. Im in the USA, i can speak. (Sorry if some of you dont live in the US, but thats my excuse.) I will keep it up if you dont, and anyways itll be buried in 5 minutes. I know. I have 5 threads that i started, same happened to each.
I also dont see that in the rules. Could you link it to me?
