Hey All

As I think you can all agree with me, Minecraft has added a lot of features into the game which allows players to explore more as well as craft more items. However, people seem to forget the items which have been taken out of game since new versions have released. Below I have added some items and features which have been removed.


- Brick Pyramids -

Yes Minecraft had Brick Pyramids in Minecraft which had no interior rooms and was spawned far away from the spawn-point. The Brick Pyramids were in the Infdev Version.

- Obsidian Walls -
Now the Obsidian Walls weren't giant walls of Obsidian which went miles high, but they were random pieces of Obsidian which were found often in rows.

Block & Items

- Rose -
The Rose is one of the most recent items which have been removed from the game. However they have been replaced with a new texture and are now known as a Poppy.

- Lantern -
The Lantern was planned to be added into the game in a Halloween update, however was never added. The idea was that torches would flicker and then go out after a while, and would have to be relight by flint and steel. However the large amount of negative reviews of the idea from the Minecraft Community, the idea was scraped.

- Crying Obsidian -
No, Notch didn't want certain Obsidian Blocks to cry. However the Crying Obsidian Blocks purpose was for the spawn-point after a player would die, however they were replaced with beds.

- Leather Chain Armour -
Leather Chain was added into Minecraft before Gold and Diamond Armour. However since Gold and Diamond can now be crafted into Armour, there was now purpose for then Leather Chain Armour.

- Ruby -
Not many people know, but Ruby s were added into Minecraft, however due to the developer of the Ruby Ore was colorblind, he found it hard to find the differences between the Redstone Ore and the Ruby Ore. So the Ruby was replaced with the Emerald.

- Pigman -
Now there is the Zombie Pigmen which are still in Minecraft to-day, however there was once a normal Pigmen which Notch announced they would be added as NPC in Villages.

- Environment -

- Sky Dimension -
The Sky Dimension was a type of world which had a series of floating island which players could fall off and die by falling into the void. This world type was taken out and was replaced with The End world. However, it is still debated if the world type should be added back into the game.

This is a few features which have been taken out of Minecraft however I did not want the blog to be extremely long. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed my blog post.

Pigmen weren't taken out. They were never there. Neither were leather-chain armor, crying obsidian, and lanterns.
If you read I do say that they were planned and then replaced with something else. Meaning that the feature was removed from Minecraft.
Anyone who is colour blind wouldn't be able to tell the difference between rubies and redstone--or emeralds. People who are colour blind have great difficulty seeing red and green colours as very different colours. So if the person was colour blind, I doubt he could easily spot the difference between red ores or emeralds--especially since emeralds are a very soft, light colour.

That's only if he was specifically red-green colorblind. There are other types of color blindness. For instance, I personally have trouble distinguishing between grays and blues sometimes. Either way, colorblindness was the official reason Mojang states they changed it.
True. My father has difficulty telling between green and blue.
But emerald ore has a different shape to it, the emeralds embedded in the stone are all simply squares, while diamond and redstone have the same pattern.
True. If they had kept the same texture but changed the colour it wouldn't have made a difference.

I'll be honest, I knew all of these. Don't mean to be rude, though!

I didn't know about the Ruby part...

I wish they had the sky dimension instead of the End...
I wish they had both!

Well then, I think the End is a bit dull after a while, just Enderman and a different block...
I do agree, however it is something which "completes" the game

Yes, the completion part is cool but I really think it's pointless (the ending that is). The End dimension is cool, for a little bit but it loses its meaning after a while. It just becomes a small floating island with enderman. I think of it as a giant death trap that is hard to escape. But the whole point is that the completion part is just pointless, nothing happens afterwards and you get back into your normal world of minecraft.

I really hate that they removed the slab lighting "glitch"... and then replaced it with a glitch that's about 10 times less useful.

They apparently had gears somewhere in the code, but they were never implemented into the game. They were kinda like redstone mechanics for vertical walls.

They also had gravel beaches, got rid of them, and brought them back in the newest update to some of the mountain biomes.

Gears were used, only in a super early version.
Later replaced with redstone.

Could use the spoiler text and rename the section Screenshots, would allow users to view the screenshots at the bottom of the blog without making the blog look messy.

i remember that the wither was apparently going to be in the sky dimension
Back in the day ;)
I knew about all of this already, but some of these features would be awesome in the game, such as Leather Chain Armor. Rubies, Pigmen, the Skylands and the Lantern.
I agree, however I think Rubies have officially been replace with the emeralds.
I meant Rubies as the currency you use to trade with pigmen, like was originally planned.
The pigmen got replaced with the Villagers
Rubies got replaced the Emeralds
I know, that's what I said :P
