A set of them along the back wall might be nice. I've also gone to painterly.net and changed the grass and tree leaves textures, to create a seperate "Autumn" version of the texture pack, as this season is my favorite time of year.
The above is the only picture I've took so far. Just so I can tell which leave blocks in the old maze need changing.
A lava maze is an interesting idea. I may have to steal that.
I'm sure people have done it many times before. Scratch that, I know people have done it before. You won't be stealing anything
Also, keep in mind that lava likes to spread out on its source block, so I would sugest making a roof that only goes over the walkway bit so the lava doesn't make a huge mess.

I'd be interested to see the results if you did.
So something unexpected happened in my storage room.
As soon as you come down the stairs, on the immediate left there's a cobble & related chest wall, behind which is a "back room". This back room used to have a cobblestone generator in it, but since Alpha I have always dug a two-width path around lava pools, which is why I have so much cobble. When I built the generator is was one of those "Building it for the sake of building it", I never used it. Many many months ago, I removed the generator and just had lava falls encased in glass to back-light the cobble chests. (Which had glass behind them.) Extra lighting.
So as I was back in my storage room, I suddenly thought how pointless that back bit was and... what if I was to just incorporate it into the rest of the storage room! More space! Suddenly I wondered why I had never thought of this before and deactivated the lava falls and started build the back room out to eventually remove the cobble chest wall:
The obsidian floor was a pain to mine up, but the result feels like the extra bit has a bit of a curve to it. A bit of sorting and more snow in the roof later, it was done. Also the stairs coming down have always been two wide, but after the turn the last few steps down have always been one stair wide, so now I had room I changed them to two wide also.
Various storage implications resulted also. Opposite were this wall was, are a stack of single chests from top to bottom: bones, bonemeal, armor, tools and the last chest bows. Well, I've got so many bows of skeletons it had filled it's single chest and was spreading into the "Tools" single chest. So this changed has allowed me to move all of them over to the new extension area and give them a double chest at last. Similarly by the stairs, the single "Temporary Odds and ends" single chest (For temporary stuff I have on me that I might need - carpets, apples, healing potions for zombie villagers) has also moved to the double chest area as has the ender chest for my arrows with a new one right next to it.
In place of the old "Bow" single chest I now keep my sticks, which were also at the crafting bench by the stairs. The slight extension needs more glowstone of course, but I can also trade in my trading center for that. I also checked them on the way to the snow factory and back (Villagers in the trading area) and they're fine! I hadn't looked in on them in a while!
Recent investigations reveal a drastic cost cutting exercise at the welovetomine corp, but home owner leangreen76, the sentient Autobot from The Transformers franchise, denies any money problems after spending lavish amounts on glowstone for his private art gallery and new aquarium.
Stock picture: 4 years ago:
It comes after new development plans earlier this year were made to build a multi-emerald million Aquarium beneath the more recently opened trading center within the art museum. With hardened clay walls and the start of a similarly expensive lapis stained hardened clay floor, the project was abandoned speculating on the cost of the build. Already a rounded bay window under the sea bed had been build and filled with class., but once work started on the floor the new aquarium seemingly stalled, and no further work was done for a great amount of time.
How the Aquarium looked in the early build:
When asked leangreen76 replied, "sure I may be light on diamonds these days, but I've just come back from a massive nether expedition". That nether expedition funded a huge amount of glowstone in areas of the art gallery that were much needed., especially a small alcove extension to showcase the remaining ore artifacts - coal and diamond. All of a sudden work has now begun on the aquarium with the previously lapis stained clay floor being covered with a expensive, rich and vibrant blue carpet. Still the home owner denies cost cutting, "it's not a case of expense", said leangreen76, "It's just a case of what would be more durable for the floor" The question of why the sudden change from lapis stained clay floor to blue carpet continues to go unanswered.
Art gallery exhibits & the W.I.P Aquarium:
When pushed for whether his company welovetomine.corp has money problem, leagreen766 rrefused to comment and answer any remaining further questions. It has been suggested however that leaked documents reveal plans to condemn the current apartment block near his home and re-build it in a modern style, as well as a multi-billion plan to build a second science lab in his home that is three times bigger than the last housing 8 work stations.This all comes after earlier months of massive regeneration of Mount DOOOooom across the ocean.
So I'm just gonna do updates and if anyone is interested and wants to add their thoughts and suggestions they can.
In the "What have you done recently" thread I posted that last weekend I leveled the mountain next to the church so the back extension, the vestry; could have the proper roof it needed not joining onto the mountain next to it. With that done and the land becoming a new graveyard, the next big project was never far away...
At present the current underwater tunnel for the minecart, goes across via the church, Mount DOOOOm and stopping at my Multiplayer home/shrine copy from the first sever I joined, going directly underneath the bridge. To give you an idea of the time frame, I think it was before the [then] cobble bridge got re-vamped - and it was before the likes of night vision and water breathing potions (Potions in general.), as well as stained glass!
After the bridge got re-vamped, I've felt it looked a bit cluttered with the underwater tunnel directly underneath. So, in the home instead of an aquarium room (Underneath the art gallery & trading area via the library.), I will make that more of a comfy waiting room for the new tunnel. The new tunnel will continue out into the sea from the center of big bay window, with: a new circular design, made from light blue stained glass, exterior supporting rings (Probably stone-brick), nice floor and better lighting.
Thankfully I've got potions of water breathing and night vision this time (Had to make the latter today as I had none) as well as a pair of gold Depth Strider II boots I got of a skeleton once in battle. The DS boots are heaven! Side note: I've never actually made golden carrots in a survival world - needed for the night vision.
*With the new route, going down to and through the library to get to it will be a pain. I'll simply add a second set of stairs down outside (Exterior of rear home-in-a-mountain) down to the shore. There is already an exterior secret door from the inside and outside of the trading area of the art gallery above the proposed room (Was to be aquarium is below that.); so that'll be a quicker route to it.
*When the old tunnel is gone, both ends will have to be blocked off, thus will the stairs into the ground down from the church. I have already subsidized this however, as for the longest time there is a cave in the exterior ground at the vestry end. Although covered over currently, it lies directly besides and below the new grave yard. When the new tunnel joins the old one, I will make this cave a mini-station platform from the church - so still joining from the church will be an option!
