Kinda cool but I'm not exactly sure what it is.
I feel having directional lighting would, as others have probably pointed out, not really fit Minecraft much. Plus it would be very annoying to have giant shadows everywhere in my opinion.
Another thing, the idea itself is very vague and impractical. What would the crafting recipe for these special lights be, or would it be a creative-only item? Would it be like barriers and be invisible unless you are holding the block, or would it be always visible and an eyesore on an otherwise beautiful build? How would this idea handle with lower end computers that may barely be able to handle Minecraft as it is now?
They added blast furnaces for ores only for a reason. They made the time faster, but lowered the experience. Regular blocks usually don't give much experience, so this would be an unbalanced suggestion. I don't really think there is a very good way to get around the unbalance of this.
Like, would it cost thousands of dollars to fund a site like this? I'm sure the thousands of ACTIVE members would be more than willing to donate a few dollars to keep the site up. Otherwise, we'll have to migrate to PlanetMinecraft, which isn't as good as MinecraftForum.
9/10... Question 7 got me (the cookie one)
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?! O.O
P.S. how much is it?
