    By making this, it would be too OP. If you have a friend with infinite lava, imagine what would happen to your 3 months worth mansion made of wood?


    Wow, you have horrible friends.

    posted a message on Expand the Stairs and Slabs!

    Why should wood and stone/brick be our only items with which to craft these? Why cant we use those same crafting patterns with more stuff?


    Just think of it...


    • Wool slabs and stairs for properly flowing elegant pathways and staircases, not just plain wood stairs interspersed by carpets.
    • Iron/Gold/Lapis/Diamond/Emerald/Coal stairs and slabs could really grab the eye in a build project. (Not Redstone Block slabs/stairs, though - too easy to mess with wiring if misplaced)
    • Craft yourself some Dirt and Snow stairs/slabs to smooth out those rough hillsides leading up to your fancy mansion.
    • Make your home uniquely stylish with the fantasy-story beauty of a glass staircase!
    • Heck, why not Glowstone and Obsidian, to really get folks' attention? (You just KNOW a self-lighted walkway made of glowstone slabs and obsidian stairs would look awesome as hell!)

    Really, the list goes on and on.


    Sure, it's mostly aimed at the artistic sorts who want stuff to look good, rather than how most suggestions are aimed at making Survival mode
    more challenging... but it's still worth looking into.


    Frankly, it almost seems surprising that it wasn't already in the game.

    It might be a bit tricky for texture-makers until they get used to how the stairs/slabs read the textures, but otherwise I see no more problems with texturing than there are for regular wood and stone ones already in the game.

    One more thing...
    Allow me to clarify - the dirt/snow terrain-block slabs would be just a nice craftable bonus for adding an extra aesthetic flair to building. I'm not suggesting they be naturally-occuring features.

    As for the iron/gold/etc. slabs/stairs, those would have the same texturing as the storage blocks, but would be made with the items, not the blocks - an iron slab would be made with three iron ingots in a line, lapis stairs would be made with three lapis ore in a stair-pattern, etc. That's all, just a craftable bonus for aesthetic purposes, same way the existing carpeting and such are.

    Lava buckets work as fuel for furnaces. Easy infinite lava means easy infinite smelting.


    Blaze rods are good fuel, too, and there's ways to get infinites of those.
    Quote from IcarusPhoenix»

    Building a large obsidian structure requires a LOT of lava. Obsidian is very strong, so it makes sense that collecting a lot of it should be a challenge. If there was infinite lava, it would be too easy.


    As I said, how is having inf. lava in the Overworld really that different from (build Nether portal, pop in with bunch of buckets, pop back out with full buckets from giant ocean of lava that is anywhere you look in Nether), aside from removing the delay/tedium of loading screens?

    I mean, come on, honestly. It's not like it would be any more gamebreaking than infinite water is.


    We've already got the Nether, which, albeit a pain to access/use, is basically an "infinite" lava source considering it's nigh-limitless lava oceans, so why not cut out the middleman and allow us to create in the Overworld an infinite lava pool the way we do for water?

    As my MC name is based on my WoW main, I figured a skin based on her would be appropriate (even if she is a gnome)... obviously, you'll need to scale things up to human proportion where necessary.


    3D effects would be ponytail & bangs, maybe earrings if you can pull it off.

    Use barriers, not glass. They're invisible. /give @p barrier


    Tempting, but I like the way the glass looks, especially with the connected-textures thing active.

    I found a picture of one if it helps you any. I think your's is too small to work. (Someone feel free to prove me wrong on that)



    Oh wow! Yes, that's exactly the sort of thing I wanna do! Where did you find that? Do they have instructions?

    posted a message on Need help with idea for lava/water spiral...

    As the subject says.


    I can picture it in my head, I'm just not sure how to do it.


    See, I want to make a huge glass column, with a pillar of glowstone at the center, and a flow of lava and water corkscrewing around the middle, kinda like DNA.


    I know the top, where the source blocks are, will kinda look like this (middle row is the source blocks and glowstone, lava and water are flowing clockwise):


    :: :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: ::

    :Glass: :Water: :Water: :Glass: :Glass:

    :Glass: :Indigo: :Yellow: :Orange: :Glass:

    :Glass: :Glass: :Lava: :Lava: :Glass:

    :: :Glass: :Glass: :Glass: ::


    My problem is, I'm uncertain how to arrange the glass layers under the top layer so it will spiral properly without either flow touching... I might need to make it bigger, I'm not sure yet - geometry is not my forte.

    People probably bitched about that too, This community will look for ANY reason to complain.

    Yup, but complaints don't always have actual merit, and that's the point.

    Without doubt, this is THE BEST thing to happen to Minecraft that was not actually created by Mojang themselves, in my not-so-humble opinion.

    You may not, But alot of people will scream that it makes alchemy overpowered and glowstone too easy to get for lighting purposes.


    Pfft. it's no more "overpowered" than when pigmen were made to drop gold nuggets.
