    posted a message on A dirt house that is actually good?
    My brother was challenged on our realm the other day to build a dirt house that wasn't awful. He gladly accepted and made this masterpiece. what do you think? could you stand living in a dirt house if it were like this? I should say that it does however of course use doors, windows, torches and fences and also is furnished with a bed, crafting table and furnaces, but all other materials are dirt or close to it. What do you think? Good enough to live in?

    posted a message on [Corn!] A more challenging farm - Corn, Scarecrows and Crows in minecraft
    To whomever it may concern, I have a suggestion that I feel would really add to the experience of minecraft. The ideas will be split into a few parts for a more efficient framing of my idea; corn, crows, scare-crows, and finally a new enemy mob.

    Lets begin with corn. Corn is an idea my brother and I have been wishing for for some time, and I think it would be a fairly beneficial element to the game's growing agriculture options. Corn would be, from my personal hopes, a more permanent crop wherebye you grow the plant once and then remove the ears of corn as they grow by right clicking them. From the ears of corn, they could be cooked to be eaten or crafted to make curnels(similar to seeds from pumpkins/melons) which would in turn be the means of planting more stocks. To start a corn field you will find cernels in villages as you would other rare items or through trades. The actual stocks of corn would be 2 or 3 blocks high and unable to be destroyed by jumping, allowing corn fields to be an easy place to get lost or ambushed in by mobs. This sort of maze would be quite amusing and challenging, and would add some evening suspense. The corn would need to be grown in open air, no greenhouses or underground farm. There may be no blocks above the corn or else it will only be the stock that grows but it will not yield corn. (This is actually just a cheap fix for a problem some of us noticed in the comments, if someone else has a better solution please let me know.)

    Corn would not require watersource after the crop itself is planted. You need to let the stock grow in the same way you would any plant, but then after it has grown the corn will replenish itself regardless of whether or not the plant is in range of a water source block. Though corn appears more convenient aside from the necessity of finding a village or abandoned farm, corn will prove a challenge due to the next element of my idea: crows.
    .
    A sort of texture test done with some fences, hay bale and jackolantern, but in actual practice I would think that the scarecrows dimension's would be closer to a player's except with arms out wide and no legs(as he is on a pole).


    Crows being the main entity of this proposal, they would be the first real birds in vanilla minecraft. Crows will circle over corn fields and steal any and all ears of corn from the stocks as they spawn, making producing corn a challenge. crows are also natural scavengers would be attracted to rotting flesh, mainly zombies. Crows by night will peck at zombies, doing minimal damage, but doing just enough to act as a distraction from the player. However crows would also potentially attack players, should they be holding corn or rotten flesh. Crows would spawn in groups of 3-5 at a time, otherwise called murders (seriously, this is what a group of crows is, isnt that interesting?). When concerning corn however crows would mainly be an annoyance to the player, thus bringing in the necessity for my next implement.

    The scarecrow would be craftable using sticks, jack o lanterns and hay bales. It's purpose would be to both serve as a light source, and a repellent to crows so as to prevent them from stealing your corn. Similar to a watersource block, the scarecrow would serve only a designated area from it's source. This would serve as a new purpose for jack o lanterns, something I feel is lacking. It would both protect fields from crowa and from hostile mobs spawning due to light source in the scarecrow...admittedly that's all I have for that one, Im open to suggestions for more uses, butter honestly that seems satisfactory.

    The final proposition I have is a new boss or fairly challenging mob like the wither skeleton. To be spawned you would need to place a specific block(or group of blocks, I don't know something rare and difficult) in the middle of a crop circle. The player would need to design a specific shape in their cornfield to allow this boss, or very strong mob to spawn inside of it. I have very few ideas on what would spawn inside but again, this is just an idea.

    It has been suggested to me that the boss could be a kind of large, evil scarecrow (not unlike the pumpkin king from Nightmare before Christmas) bent on avenging the corn you have stolen. This is just an idea and I would appreciate more feedback to really shape the idea into something usuable and interesting.

    Another possibility could be to have abandoned farms with corn field's spawn. This would provide a source of corn to start a farm with, but it would be guarded by the enemy scarecrow mob.

    If the barn was still in use it could be a cool opportunity to implement then green villager!

    posted a message on [Red Dragon!] Extreme hills guardian!
    Okay here's the thing, I know that the red dragon is more likely than not is never going to reappear in minecraft. It has gone the way of the dodo, the giant and Rana. However, just for the fun of it, why dont we just consider a way that this majestic beast could be re-implemented.

    Habitat: The red dragon would live in the extreme hills biome, spawning very very rarely. It would fly above the mountains and the clouds, not entirely visible and would act rather neutral towards a player. The dragon would be very territorial however and would only attack when provoked. When a dragon does spawn, it will spawn a nest along with it at the top of a mountain with dragon eggs inside. These will have the same model as the ender dragon egg but being will have an actual purpose( we will get to that in a minute).

    Behavior: Now, the dragon will continue to circle and mind it's own business, perhaps attacking sheep and cattle from the air for food? The dragon will only attack when an egg, or a piece of it's nest is destroyed by the player. Immediately after any block is broken the dragon will let out a deafening roar audible from a fairly great distance (not like the wither I believe it is that is able to be hear all across the world, or maybe that's just the sky changing colour honestly I am not sure). The dragon will then relentlessly attack you with both a ranged fireball attack and the classic dragon tactic "I'm just going to run into everything and blow it up, because this is how a dragon do." Once the player has been killed the dragon will continue it's previous neutral behavior.

    Drops: This dragon will not be as challenging as the other bosses, but it will have a more unique feature about it in what it gives as an item drop. As I mentioned earlier about the dragon killing passive mobs for food, as well as the players it defeats, the dragon when killed will drop all the items it has collected. This makes the dragon a real source of food for a player, as well as any weapons and armor lost by previous warriors. As well as these items it will drop other various treasures because dragons are thought to be greedy for gold and treasure, and that's what I am focusing on in this dragon. In the dragons nest there will be blocks of gold, similar to underwater temples, this is because this is the dragons hoard which it keeps it's eggs protected in.



    ...Now for what everyone wants. The dragon egg.

    Let me be clear, I in no way want dragons as pets or tamable mobs. The eggs, WILL NOT be used to spawn baby dragons.

    The only suggestion from this I would support is the cooked egg and the corn. Everything else is either OP, or Useless.

    I agree with this statement, cooked egg is something I would really appreciate, as well as corn as you could probably tell.

    Quote from GarTheBargarian

    Hey Thaegrim, as i said in the previous comment, adding in Abandoned farms would be a must for corn to get implemented(as it needs a special place,being the special crop it is) so i spent a bit building a small Farm( no corn field though) on the latest snapshot below are some of the screenshots of the outside the interior and a root cellar(or more appropriately a corn cellar) Enjoy :)

    The Farm

     

    I love the idea and design of the root cellar, though I think the actual barn exterior should resemble the already present npc structures like witch huts and villages. I will build something similar to show you what I mean!



    This is just a little test ruin I built to sort of give an idea of the abandoned barn, building on your idea. I didn't get a chance to make a cellar like yours, but the entrance is depicted in image 3.
