    Mega's suggestion doesn't really seem like a joke at all, especially if you consider Coros' Pet mod. In it, you used a dominion rod to take control of mobs, even hostile ones.

    Mega's zombie staff would essentially act as a dominion rod specialized toward zombies.

    You could rationalize the item as either enticing zombies with the brain on the staff [zombies love them some brains :smile.gif: ] to do your bidding, or just (somehow) channel one's will through the brain-staff to control zombies.

    However, might I suggest adding some other, more difficult to obtain materials into that staff recipe?

    :RedShroom: :Ham: :RedShroom:
    [] :|: []
    [] :|: []

    redshrooms being redstone, the ham being the brain, and the white blocks being emtpy slots



    i re=read the post and realized where my mistake was, i thought that he was implying that one saff would make all zombies nice and follow you/ do your bidding. i would say 2 zombies per staff.
    but this is sort of getting out of hand, i never liked the suggestions that started out small and sweet, but turned into 1 simply obtainable item that would do everything and could be crafted into a hundred things.
    in minecraft items have only a few purposes, thus diversity

    I'm glad you think these things Squid, and the brain lamp idea was just something I threw out there.

    In regard to to the lamp's aethetic, I was thinking more on the lines of looking like an ornate rod with a bioluminescent jellyfish integrated into it.

    I know, the transition from zombie brain to underwater jellyfish torches seems rediculous, but its no where near as rediculous as exploring the ocean depths with a bunch of brains on sticks. It's at least plausible, videogame-wise.

    As to using the brains to craft automated defenses, your being put off by it isn't surprising, as I said it was rather "out there."



    The idea of the jellyfish-esque underwater torches is plausible, and i like it, i picture pinkish blobs on the ned of a stick that only light up underwater.
    they would simpley be crafted like this
    [] :Pig: []
    [] :|: []
    [] :|: []
    :Pig: =brain
    but you would only get 1 instead of the 4 you get from regular torches, because i picture these being more rare.

    I find it to be a rather creative idea. Someone else's suggestion to have the brains act as monster bait sounds like the simplest, and most practical application to the drop.

    I'd suggest other things like crafting brains in jars using the brain and glass. It would serve as a morbid decoration.

    Another idea would be to use the brains as a reagent for making potions (disgusting, I know, but any more than eye of newt?). Maybe a bioelectrical lamp for underwater light using light stone/redstone dust?

    One last idea, though this is rather pushing it, would be to use the brains, along with redstone dust and other less used materials, to make automated defenses like autoturrets or golems/cyborg guardians.

    At the very least, this drop makes ALOT more sense than zombies dropping feathers.



    crafting brains in jars is something i was thinking about but could never find a use for, then i read what notch said about him later implementing shelves and being able to decorate your overly large overly empty house, tower, castle, city, utopia whatever.
    making a brain in a jar with redstone wire and turning it into an underwater lamp would be a great idea, but maybe when you craft it, the brain would be replaced for a glob of glowing redstone? idk i just find a brain in a jar lighting up would not fit in to people's creations.
    potions, great idea. instead of a crafting box you could make something like a cauldron and add items like the brain into it, and maybe umm clay and redstone and you could get the golem type guardian

    maybe, lets say only zombies would go for it, and they would take only 1-2 seconds to break-eat it.
    ive never been an adventurer and avoid mobs as much as possible, therefore never payed attention to mob attractor ideas. maybe if they eat it, they would give you back the block if you kill them in..10 seconds? and they would drop 2 brains (the item not the block) instead of one.

    ok so i've been playing minecraft for a while now, id say 3-4 months, not that long but long enough to have my own opinions and ideas, and one thing that really bugs me is the zombies dropping feathers. :Zombie: I know that Notch :Notch: didn't have chickens when he implemented the zombie drops, and he couldn't think of anything for them to drop.
    So i thought up an idea, not very original, but it works.

    Brains :Pig:

    brains could be little pink square things with little black swirls in them.
    and you could craft them
    :Pig: = Brains
    :Pig: :Pig: :Pig:
    :Pig: [] :Pig:
    :Pig: :Pig: :Pig:
    and you could get a full brain block that would technically just be the same as the item except placeable.

    also you could have super intelligent computers run by brain!
    BRAIN IN A JAR

    so tell me what you think of this
    and if someone was bored enough you could make a mod :smile.gif:
