I spent hours, possibly days wondering to myself... What does Minecraft need, what do i want in Minecraft. Minecraft itself doesn't need anything. I prefer Minecraft to be mainly about survival... without witches and wizards. Fancy items and blocks would ruin the game for me.

Minecraft needs new game play. Some people want magic in Minecraft, in my opinion magic in Minecraft would be a disaster. Minecraft is a fun game the way it is, there are only several things that should be tweaked in order to improve the overall game play. Minecraft doesn't need fancy items implemented into it. If users are wishing to have "magic" in their Minecraft they should download mods. The rest who don't want it are forced to update if they wish to play on servers. Those who want to have magic implemented into Minecraft should make a game called Magiccraft. There, problem resolved.

I'd like to thank every single person who diamonded my contest entry. Thanks for all the support <333

Upgraded Biome
Biomes... You know.. Those almost useless things c:

My idea: Upgraded biomes - Biomes should be fun. Imagine in winter, feeding unicorns lush grass while admiring the beauty of the world around you. Imagine waking up to the fresh smell of bread being baked. Imagine if you could have most of that... at your fingertips, without even having to get out of your nice and warm seat.
Seasons: Instead of having tiny little boring same ol same biomes.. Why not have massive biomes! I really do mean massive.. When the season changes e.g Changes to summer... The leaves will change colour, the grass will into a light brown/green sort of colour, and few plants will live. It will be hard to survive in winter, as there will be few trees in sight. Each season will last about 2/3 Minecraft days..
Autumn: In autumn the leaves will turn reddish orange, the grass will be bright green, and the apples will fall.. It will be a mix of warmish cool weather., Sometimes being Sunny other times being rainy.. Autumn will be a peaceful season.
Winter: In Winter the leaves will turn bright green, and so will the grass, flowers will spring from the ground. The weather will either be snowy or rainy, Animals will hibernate.. Monsters on the other hand.. will be out alot..
Spring: In Spring the leaves will be light green, the grass will be light green, and the flowers will be fully sprung. The weather will be Cold but not snowy, there will be few animals above ground, and a lot of monsters out at night.
Summer.. As said before the leaves will be brown and so will the grass.. The weather will burn, occasional sandstorms will appear, few plants will live. Lots of monsters will be out in the day (Not the ones that burn) And so will animals... But the animals will die off quickly as not much grass to graze on.
Lighter Falling
Ever wanted mechanics to come into Minecraft? Well thats my next idea! The harder the object, the more damage you take from falling.. Wool for instant.. would give you say 50% less falling damage.. and grass would give you 15% less damage..

Wool. Wool Will give 75% Less fall damage.. (The more blocks high you fall.. the more damage still) Wool is a soft material,
Grass. Grass is kind of soft right? It hurts less to fall down on it then say.. Stone? Grass will give you 35% less fall damage. Grass is softer then dirt, harder then wool.
Dirt. dirt of course will give you Less fall damage, considering its alike grass a lot. Dirt can be hard though, if its compacted, which is why the damage will be randomised from 10% - 30% less fall damage
Stone. Stone is hard.. Rock hard! Falling on this hard substance will get you -2% more fall damage.
Wood. Wood is less hard then stone. But harder then those soft substances such as dirt and snow. Wood gives you 1% Less fall damage.
Obsidian. Obsidian is a very hard substance! Obsidian will give you -45% more Fall damage. Better look out for this one!
Clay Clay is generally a rock hard substance. But not in Minecraft.. In Minecraft it is considered some what Soft? Which is why it will give %10 Less fall damage.
. Glass I prefer not to land on glass.. Maybe because i dont use glass a floor, but its your choice. Landing on glass from over 5 blocks high will shatter the glass.. Causing glass pieces to fly out in a suitable direction.. each shard that hits you will give 1/2 heart damage..
. Snow. Snow.. That soft squishy thing you ski on!.. Once compacted it can also be very hard.. Which is why it can give a -5% - 85% Less/More fall damage.
Sand. Sand is squishy.. Duh! 40% Less fall damage.
Ice. That hard substance called ice! Ugh it annoys me.. It is extremely painful to land on! 20% More falling damage.
Bedrock. The hardest substance in the game.. Unbreakable.. Indestructable (By someone playing legit) So... it gives 75% More Fall damage!

Ever wanted a fancy little bubble pop-up to tell you how awesome you are at Minecraft?

How: Once you complete an achievement a pop up (in game) box will appear.. with 2 optiond, Claim now or Not right now. The idea of this is to give the new players.. Well some guide to how to play.. which brings me forward the the next idea... (Which is combined with this one) Tutorial.. New players which have just bought the game (Or have just downloaded) will be taken on a tutorial when the first make a world.. It wil lshow them how to survive, what everything means (Hearts, Hunger etc.) And give them some starting quests..

When i first started playing Minecraft, i was absolutely lost.. My brother had to help me.. figure out how to break a tree.. A tutorial would be an excellent idea for new players.. so they dont have the same OMI GAWD WHAT DO I DO Experience.

Upgraded Npcs

  • My Little Companion Npcs will be able to act as players, except a little different.. They will be given an inventory, and will be able to wield such items as swords, bows and even armor.. NPCs will have personalities, dislikes and likes.. An npc that likes fishing and absolutely hates logging, will often be seen fishing, and refuse to log. Npcs will have inventories, so instead of them having unlimited stock when they trade, they will only be able to sell whats in their inventory.. towns and npcs will not be active, when you are say 500 blocks away from the town.. this is so you don't just keep going from town to town and raiding everything and everyone.. Npcs wil lhave different attributes, you will find some npcs easy to gain trust from, and others hard.. which comes to my next idea, repetition.. The more you talk to npcs, the more your repetition will build up with them.. Getting over 100 repetition will make you neutral with the npc, and over 500 will make you friends.. Killing a town npc will lower your repetition with ALL npcs in that town.. Once you become friends with the npc, you can ask favors of them.. they will help you in battle, and may just give you the occasional gift. Yes, npcs will be able to talk, ever heard of skyrim, or the elder scrolls for that matter.. Talking to an npc will be like that.. You will have a selection of things to say... Kill an npc and they will drop whats in their inventory, but this means all the other villagers will become aggressive and start attacking you..

I like the seasons idea but there should be an option while creating your world if you would like to have seasons, or just a regular MC world
