    This is pretty much the only reason I'd have to agree with Notch on keeping the pixellated and blocky textures. With realistic graphics Minecraft would be pretty freaky.

    I don't really get the point of land claim flags. Monsters not spawning in them is useful, but they would make everything far too easy for the defenders if only set people could build/dig in them. I want to tunnel under a base and blow it up, dammit. Is that too much to ask?

    You'll probably get a couple chances from time to time, especially when it comes to NPC towns, but you probably shouldn't count on being able to steal and explode your way through the game.

    You should. Do you realize how great that would be? I suppose a server-side option to enable or disable land-claim flags would fix this, so the carebears would get their own server and I could loot on others.

    That actually does sound like a great idea. A bit of chaos from time to time could be very fun.

    Hide your base fairly well and punish people for having their dirt/wood house right out in the open in the form of robbing them blind and killing them.

    Or attempt to do this, anyways, until you discover that they used land-claim flags and that you hid your base for nothing.

    Make the top of this structure several layers thick so that in order to flood it an enemy would need to lose massive amounts of health + run out of air to get through each layer; making them very vulnerable.

    Unless you for some strange reason didn't place a land-claim flag in your base or somehow aren't positively swimming in excess gold, nobody would be able to flood it, period, even if it was one block below the surface.

    posted a message on How to make a hidden base in /indev/ or /infdev/
    I will make my house entirely out of wood and leave it entirely unguarded with lots of valuable diamonds and ores inside, unless you would count placing a land claim flag as "guarding" it. Scratch the wood part if fire doesn't count as building or destroying in a claimed area for some reason, and place the chests in a sealed room if chests aren't protected from thieves by land claim flags alone.

    Hiding buildings is pointless unless there's some kind of gold shortage, which will probably never happen.

    I'll actually make use of land-claim flags rather than go to great lengths to hide and protect my castle.

    Hopefully Notch puts them in before MP...?

    or just make it so they can only climb half-block inclines. Couple that with the idea put forward by i-forget-her-name about using two bytes per block so any block can be a half block, and you've got win. Send a few guys ahead to blaze a trail to your new home, etc.

    I think I read somewhere that all blocks already take up two bytes... :P I'd still love to see a type of half block for every block though, since I'm sure 20-30 extra bytes or so shouldn't make any difference. It'd allow for real hills and stuff! :o

    Menen's dare : Make a giant stair case down to the entrance to hell with a nice glass floor over the portal

    I've done this twice before! It's easy. :B

    Frostdawn's dare: Make it so that there is an uninterrupted tunnel between said glass floor and surface, making it so you can see both the sun and moon at once. :<

    A hot air balloon would be a pretty great way of having a "flying" vehicle without getting too ahead of medieval-era technology.

    I'm thinking vehicles would be difficult to do, and probably have to be kept small though.


    for ****s sake! minecraft is not mideval themed! notch could put whatever the hell he wants in and it wouldnt be out of place...


    Notch himself said he wanted a medieval themed game!
    That's why I said it!

    Pretty sure they didn't have levers and logic puzzles and this AND/NOT or whatever stuff that I don't understand in medieval times, and Notch said he was going to add them. Did they even have cogs? I guess those might have been used in drawbridges and stuff...

    But, on mine there is much more water then there is land which makes them much more rare

    They can spawn in water too.

    Also, try jumping on top of one while looking down. Hooray for weird optical illusion things! :D

    It seems to spawn randomly, though the first one I found was along the obsidian line in the skyless void, just as the last stretch of sky was disappearing behind me. Unlike obsidian you can break the blocks, but like breaking every other block in the game, breaking it will not give you bricks.
