Um, unless I missed something, this is just a suggestion someone thought of; some like it, some don't. So what? What are the odds it'll happen outside of a mod? Y'all act as if it'll appear and mess up your personal beach if you don't shout down anyone who thinks it might be cool.

May 26, 2011My perfectly safe and stable fireplace suddenly set my roof on fire. Now, the fire burned itself out with only about half the building gone, but still -- I was under the impression that fire would be SAFER. A tree near my temple burned down, too. Just one, though. It *was* kinda too near the firepit, but no nearer than it was before the update.Posted in: Survival Mode
Glad I backed up my save. I restarted and then rushed over and extinguished my fireplace, then ran to the temple and saved most of the tree (it's a cool tree).
That, and my fountains froze over. See, refreezing in cold biomes makes sense. But not so much for running water. They look silly -- this 1x1 tower of dirt with an ice cube on top. They looked great when they were running. Either that is an unintended consequence or I'll suck it up and move or heat them somehow.
No sign of tall grass or desert scrub yet, which is a disappointment. Most of my grass is kinda brownish now (using both my regular texture and the default one).
My map is smaller than my regularly-used territory. At that scale I'm not sure how useful it will turn out to be. Well, it'll probably be useful, it's not like the whole thing is filled. And with multiple maps I could see quite a bit of usefulness.
Haven't really played with hatches yet, but I want to make a drawbridge with them.

Personally, when I learned they would be including lightning, I was surprised it didn't make glass. Not terribly useful, but I think it would be nice. Maybe just a percent chance.
It'd be even neater if it made, like, smoked glass that you could actually pick up.
IRL, lightning never struck sand
This is not true.

It makes sense, but would it add anything to gameplay? The range of materials is pretty good, would adding another help anything?
And agreed with others, stronger than diamond is silly.
Although, IRL obsidian is pretty fragile...
Apr 25, 2011There are some beautiful rooms here!Posted in: Survival Mode
I made a few things I'd like to show off. I can describe how I made them, but I think it's a matter of a picture being worth a thousand words here:
First, the Temple:
This is a side-chapel in the temple, showing the bank of candles.
Here's a view of the main section, showing the pews, the central runner rug and the Netherrack torches.
A view of some of the light fixtures up in the rafters. Yes, there is a portal behind the main altar, which for now is just two cobblestone blocks with cake on them.
Little barred windows in the basement.
Next, the little bridge:
From the end. The lamp post is a Jack-o-Lantern. Texture is Jolicraft.
A view of the railing.
And from under the bridge. Cute, huh?
I also have a covered bridge:
View from inside.
View from outside.
And finally, I have started construction on an asylum. Only the front office is furnished:
Tiled floor (dyed wool), desk and chair to the left, bookshelves and filing cabinet to the right. I got the idea for the "drawer" signs from this thread. In addition to torches, the room is lit with Jack-o-Lanterns embedded in the ceiling.
And finally, a shot of construction. Of note, to the right you can see a Jack-o-Lantern embedded in the (incomplete) ceiling. It will also light the floor above. The painting is one I made, I tinkered with the texture pack. It has four Jack-o-Lanterns in the wall behind it.
When I run out of pumpkins, I imagine I'll have to go hunting for glowstone. I wish it weren't such a durned pain.
