    Study it for a little while, then try to kill it.

    posted a message on If you could make a new mob what would it be called
    Gargoyles!

    During the day they spawn on top of high mountains in stone form and are only found in mountainous biomes. They can be killed in this form, but only if you have a gold pick axe.

    At night they come to life and attack the player. They can be killed with swords or arrows at night but it's not very effective - a golden pick axe is much better. They attack by swooping down at the player. After an unsuccessful attack they will land for a few seconds, giving the player a chance to deal major damage with their pick.

    I have two ideas for drops: first, gargoyle teeth. They can be used to make arrows that slow down mobs and deal damage. Second, tiger eye gemstones. These are used to make stone sentries that work with redstone.

    posted a message on If Endermen/Farlanders...
    I've only seen Endermen with dirt and sand blocks so I'm guessing they can only move blocks the player can break with their bare hands.

    When I see Enderman with a pick axe, I'll be worried.

    posted a message on What do you want the new "scary" mob to be?
    Every hostile mob does something unique.

    - Creepers explode and destroy your precious creations. They're also the only "smart" mob.
    - Slimes split into smaller slimes when attacked.
    - Spiders climb walls.
    - Skeletons strafe and shoot.
    - Spider jockies are two mobs in one.
    - Ghasts fly, shoot projectiles and destroy netherrack.
    - Zombies go "uuuugh."

    So we know this new mob will also do something unique. Possibly it could combine the abilities of other mobs, like ghasts and spider jockies, but I'd like to think it's something completely new. Possibly a flying mob outside the nether? Dragons are a possibility. Maybe it's a huge mob, like the giants? I don't think it's an underwater mob. Water mobs are pretty easy to avoid and that makes them less "scary." Anyway, enough speculation. Here's a list of "scary" things we haven't seen mobs do yet:

    - Break blocks with their bare hands.
    - Open doors. (Ohgodnoplease)
    - Pass through walls like ghosts.
    - Camouflage with their environment or turn invisible.
    - A mob that hovers several blocks above the ground and dive bombs the player (a melee flying mob).
    - Alternatively, a mob that jumps very high.
    - A mob that burrows.
    - Mimic passive mobs to trick the player.
    - Gigantic ground mobs, aka "boss mobs".
    - Start fires.

    I'm not saying that these are things Notch would implement. A ghost mob sounds pretty unfair to me, as there would be no way to defend from it. If we can guess what the mob does, we can figure out what it might be. Personally, I'd really love a flying melee mob.

    I have a question.

    I have a creeper rug near what will become my fireplace in SMP once the nether is implemented. The wool blocks are about three blocks away from the fireplace. Is this safe and, if not, how can I make it safe?

    posted a message on How will we reach the sky dimension?
    I'm thinking we tame dragons or some other flying mode of transport and when you reach the roof of the normal sky a loading screen pops up and transports you to the sky dimension. By this logic you could also simply build a giant tower to heaven. What do you think?

    posted a message on Why do zombie and skeleton burn in day while others cant?
    I think Creepers are actually a type of golem. Evidence:

    1. Their only goal is to destroy the player (or any mob that dares to **** them off) at whatever cost.
    2. They drop sulfur rather than anything organic.
    3. Notch has stated that Creepers are "crunchy, like dry leaves." This could indicate that Creepers are created with a mixture of sulfur and plant matter (possibly also bits of stone, which would fly out during their explosion and hurt the player).

    If Creepers are golems they are neither alive nor dead (nor undead), so sunlight would have no affect on them.

    Looks powerfull.


    It looked like he got hit by it but it didn't do any damage. Also, is it my imagination, or did the charged creeper appear to move faster than the normal creeper?
