Hey Guys! I don't know about you guys, but my favorite thing to do in Minecraft is build and farm. The Mojang crew have been really focusing on exploring in the past several updates and that is great! I love variety and i enjoy exploring every now and then, but i would really enjoy More Farming and building items/blocks. Farming:
I was thinking of maybe some Berries or some more kinda of Fruit to farm, such as blueberries, blackberries, cherries, bananas, oranges, apples, etc.
As for the farming of these the berries could be on bushes which are right clicked to harvest.
The trees are a little weird because i think it would be slightly annoying to have to climb up and harvest it every time you were harvesting. In this case i was thinking maybe if it wasn't to hard while a leaf block has the fruit in it(or multiple of these blocks in the tree), you could punch the bottom log block and it is like shaking the tree, the fruit have a chanceof dropping as an item or entity. Then he just resets the fruit leaf block to false or whatever and they don't drop anymore fruit until it regrows.
The building materials are really just more textures, materials, and colors to build with.
i was thinking you could have something that looks like scaffolding(like in Tekkit), like support rails. Besides this i don't look for entirely new kinds of materials i am looking for more variations. The thing that really caps the capabilities of talented builders i see is the lack of detail because it is hard to add little details unless you want to use gates and fences Everything else is a block thick. Make thinner versions of the normal blocks, you will be surprised how much detail these people will make if you just let them cut blocks in to 8 smaller cubes or even more. as more are added, buildings will improve.
For the color just make more kinds and colors of wood, stone, etc. Make stone like cement, marble, other things that would look nice for paths, etc. For the wood, stained wood, mahogany, etc.
I do believe a few updates ago they added more block and item id's so there is more space for stuff such as this. Also, for the cutting smaller cubes of blocks, they could use data variables like with wool i think, if not do it however the Tekkit people did. Anyway thanks for all that read this, feel free to leave your own ideas that relate to this topic in the comments, any problems that they may have with implementation and some idea of what solution he could use. In other words just make it easier for them to implement some of this stuff.
You know you CAN just go play tekkit. Thats what I do. So much better, and they don't need to add the tekkit stuff to minecraft, because it's already in tekkit.
Thats what I was thinking "This sounds like Tekkit"
But still, I'm up for any additions that add farming, and I like the bush idea, maybe its centered around 1 log and leaves grow from it that you break to harvest?
And I agree wiht the alck of detail, more detail would always be nice.
