    I dislike the idea of one shot then you have to return to your crafting table. It makes it more worthwhile to make a diamond sword than a gun! I don't recall a point in history where swords were a more effective weapon than a gun. I personally say it gets insanely low accuracy, like 1/5 times it actually goes exactly where you aim, but give it an insanely high damage. Additionally, give it craftable ammunition, perhaps requiring a new form of bullet. Think of it like this:

    [] [] []
    [] :Iron: []
    [] :GP: []
    1 bullet

    In this event, ammunition is difficult to acquire, and the gun itself is unreliable. However, the last element to add to our firearm should definitely be an extremely high damage potential, like a 1 hit kill on most enemies in easy difficulty, and maybe a 2 hit kill on other difficulties. Although you make be thinking "OMG 1 HIT KILL OVERPOWERED OVERPOWERED", think of the rest of the idea. Tough to make ammo, inaccurate, unreliable, yet devastating if you manage to hit the enemy. Sounds pretty balanced to me. Oh and another note, make it make creepers explode if you shoot them. Makes creepers quite hard to kill with a gun due to being unable to get close to them to shoot.

    I construct landmarks clearly visible on map viewers, such as giant arrows. Then I look for these landmarks on the map, and easily find my way back.

    That sounds quite useful. I could use it for alarm systems and such.

    Yes you can. Just hit them like any other block.

    I make them into diamond blocks and put them in my vault room, along with all my gold.

    I had this a while back. Basically, you need to remember that everything you need is at the spawn island. What discouraged me frequently was the thought that "Oh no, there probably isn't any iron on this island!" or "There probably aren't any diamonds here!" It was these thoughts that often made me start over and look for a time I spawn on an island that logically contains these minerals.

    One time I found a lava spring coming out of a mountain, so I made a fort there. I used a bucket to harvest the lava for my ditch in front of my house. Then I made the horrible mistake of making a wooden bridge to cross the lava pit. Whole house burned. Fortunately, it only took like 10 minutes to fix.
