    The Forbidden Dungeon of Ashndar

    "You live in the town of Armuskhal, inside it's protective walls, inside a large island.
    At this island, on the top of it's enormous mountain, existed a powerful city, called Ashndar, but they crumbled into ruins due to a disastrous research made inside an underground complex, just in the center of Ashndar.
    Nowadays, the remains of Ashndar citizens turned into undead, many of them wandering away from the city, in fact, even around the town of Armuskhal at nights.
    Your mission is to be the brave adventurer who will explore Ashndar and it's dungeons, be careful, it won't be easy."

    posted a message on RIP Adventure gamemode.
    When Mojang first released the Adventure mode of minecraft, I weeeeee-ed, I got really happy, I could make and play maps without being worried about breaking a block when a rule said I should not. And let's be honest, at least 40% of the custom maps today have this "do not break/place blocks" game rule.

    Then Mojang released a 1.4 snapshot update which stated that you can break blocks with corresponding tool. Okay, Adventure mode just got to look a little more like survival, but it's ok, we still can play custom adventure maps.

    Then November, 19. Adventure mode just got "destroyed", you can now break torches with your hand, and glass too! So this means I can just go and play a generated survival map in adventure mode because it's the same thing, the only difference is that you can't break a stone block with hand, OH WAIT! Who does that in survival? See? It would be just the exact same thing.

    Lets look at this example, you have a map with tiledrops gamerule off (blocks won't drop itself), and the Gamerule is set to Adventure. There is a custom village in this map, with some torches in houses and in streets so monsters won't spawn in it, then you accidently left click a torch, yeah just do it, a simple an inofensive left click on a torch... Boom! This torch will break and not drop itself, monsters are now able to spawn in this village, kill the villagers, and the map is literally destroyed by hostile mobs, all because of a left click on a torch.


    If someone at Mojang is reading this, then please, PLEASE, if this new (and in my point of view, useless, sorry) adventure mode is intended, at least make a "Gamemode 3", which would have the same properties of the 1.3.2 "Adventure Gamemode". I'm sure many map makers around here, including me, are being forced to use bukkit plugins and/or mods to make their maps functional the way they should.

    Thank you for reading, and if you agree, please drop your support, and upvote this.

    Have a good week, everyone.

    posted a message on The Red Moon
    I've been playing minecraft for a long time by now, and n :iapprove: tch said once about adding an update that makes every night has a small chance of having it's moon bright red, becoming many times more dangerous. Never happened as you can see.

    So my idea is to hope for someone to make a mod that adds this red moon in the game, I'll give more details, keep reading.

    *Every night has a 15% chance of being Red Moon.

    *The first night in the world have 0% chances of being Red Moon, let's be honest, nobody wants to face hell in the first night, lol.

    *You can always predict this night one day before, as this day will have a red apocalyptical sky (the day itself won't be more dangerous, it's just a warn).

    *During the Red Moon night, the amount of mobs spawned is increased by 6 times.

    *You can't sleep.

    *All hostiles sees you from 10 blocks further.

    *Creepers explode blocks to reach you, your house will only be safe if it's made out of obsidian (or bedrock, but I don't think you will achieve this without cheating).

    *Zombies runs as fast as pigmen.

    *Skeleton arrows set you on fire for a short time.

    *Spider attacks slow you down for a short time.

    *Nether Portals become unstable, trying to enter in one during Red Moon, or even the red day before, will just fail, and instead will cause an activity in Nether dimension that will call attention of the entities, spawning many Pigmen and maybe even a Blaze around it in real world.

    *The same happens to the End Portal, Endermen spawns around it instead.


    That's it, this idea was built by me and my brother-in-law, we just have no idea about how to mod. If a modder is interested in it, go ahead and program it, I'm definitely playing such a thing. Thank you everyone for reading, leave some feedback if you want.

    Thanks. :)
