wow. holy crap. the most i have gotten from an expedition is 5 diamonds, 24 red stone, 59 coal, 12 gold, 20 something iron and a few hundred stone. even then i have to dig most of it out by hand, is there a special way to find caves ?
what block would it generate ? it seems like it would be hard to make, as for traps dig a deep hole cover it up like this
then rig it to blow via lever at the end of the tunnel, so whoever is in the tunnel falls far down into lava / bottom of map/ more explosives ext. (P.S. i cant get the blocks to line up right, tnt explodes a 3x3x3 square around it, so make it so that they wipe out the floor, and nothing else, maybe have steel doors cover up either end so they cant get launched out of the trap)
good idea, but Notch wants a 100% original game. what might be good is a multiplayer game mode (ultra survival ?) where you have a few people have a set amount of time to make a base., and have a little war either against massive mobs (mode 1) or each other (mode 2). or possibly even give each person a "crown block" you have to steal to win the game. (traps would actually be helpful here)
I have only 2 suggestions. 1st, let us choose the climate zone we spawn in (I like mountains, im tired of spawning in the desert/flat places). and second, give us the ability to move our re-spawn (like a nether portal, but for re-spawn) so we can stick it in the middle of our house, not in the middle of nowhere. let me know what you think.
