More freedom with skin making.

  • I am a good artist, Why can't I have room on the face to make better eyes, noses, and mouths?
  • Why is just the head able to be 3D?
  • Why can't the 3Dness be extended on the head? [Hats and long hair]
  • Both arms have to match? why? Maybe I want one arm looking different than the other.

No building limit.
  • Why did Notch only make it to where you can build to 256? why not unlimited?
  • Why do chunks load differently when flying up then they do when you are ground traveling?
  • We have a world, how about some planets and space to go with it?

A heavenly portal that goes to a heaven world, just like the nether portal goes to a hell world.
  • I think a portal made out of snow with a golden glow in the middle would be cool.
  • Mobs like the villagers with halos above them?
  • Some new materials you can find there? like for potions and such.

New npc's that help you with your day to day minecrafting, so we don't just have the ones that destroy things. [Mobs]
  • Have a mob go chop wood for you if you feed it something. [or give it gold, diamdons, or whatever]
  • Have them go kill people for you? like domesticated Creepers and such.

New colors for wool.
  • Sometimes sand and brown wool are just not the right skin color.
  • Maybe you need a lighter red but not quite a pink?
  • maybe your art has more than two kinds of green and you don't have anything else to use?

Well for one this is what mods are for, and for two some of these things just ruin the MineCraft vibe. eg. guns
125th Diamond. I win.

The building limit was 125 (i think that was the number) to increase framerate. 255 is already a great
burden. I can hardly imagine endless. But everything else is good and i love all of them.

Also,speaking of wool,they should make wool slabs.

i would love to see an infinite world that is really infinite and not just horizontal... it could be done easily(well actually not that easily :P ) to, just needs some coding.

could be like the horizontal generation but then vertically:

currently chunks are rectangular blocks loaded next to each other in a certain cillindrical area around you which makes it possible to go infinite horrizontally since not all chunks are loaded at the same time, if you make these chunks square and stack em on top of each other both downwards as upwards, you could go infinitely horizontally as well as vertically, currently your pc loads a certain amount of chunk around you, it wouldnt be the different then, but instead of a cillindrical loaded area of chunk you would have a smaller spherical or square(whichever one is easiest to compute/code) loaded area around you your computer keeps the same load on it as it is now just the saves woud get bigger since every chunk square you go down/up would add a bit of extra info, same goes for horizontall as it is now.

i hope someone understands this :), it requires a small(?) rewrite of the world generation, detection and saving methods but thats about it. (no im not a coder but i do know how stuff works... just cant code it :( )

oh and im definatly for the better skin and player model you metioned... 2 different arms are a nice touch to :)

I do... I even have trouble with Python XD
the game isn't actually done yet so maybe some of those things will be added later. and a heaven world would be AWESOME!!

not if there's nothing generated above 256. so the only generated thing that would be above there (technically not) would be player created things and not generated landscapes.

He didn't make it unlimited because it would cause lots and lots of problems.

i think they are not putting this becuase it is very hard to code and to apply to the game :)

correct me if I'm wrong, but does the aether not count as heaven as the nether is to hell?
  • jerry71333

  • August 24, 2012, 5:26 pm
no the aether still has evil mobs in it. heaven is pure and has no evil whatsoever im a christian and this is how i see it

But who wants to go to heaven in Minecraft?
We all know there's no evil in Minecraft, but he means a world that resembles the common depiction of heaven (not to mention the fact that it's in the sky, which is also referable to as "heaven") to extent our survival worlds.
1 word. Awesome! ;)

I think that all of these ideas except the villagers with halos idea should be added, villagers are bad enough as it is.

I think these changes would be pretty awesome. Especially the Heaven World. But instead of killing things for the new items you mentioned, maybe help out NPC's or do something that's in good faith. You're in Heaven, after all.

with the height building limits are not unlimited because the world it self is unlimited would you rather want unlimited height building or infinite world minecraft couldn't handle it and is impractical

this has already been somewhat complied to, at least in terms of more color blocks. they have new wood planks now, and a couple of new sandstone types too.

Everything you listed under "No building limit" is either impossible or incredibly impractical to do form a coding standpoint without causing intense lag, or in the case of the planets thing would take forever to create.
And this:
[color=rgb(153,0,0)][bgcolor=rgb(204,204,204)]"Have them go kill people for you? like domesticated Creepers and such."[/bgcolor][/color]
I thought thats what wolves were for?

Everything else I agree with, good job.
ye good point
Yeah I agree with u yok

Planets is a good idea, i hate being on the same planet forever...

70th diamond, but the wool idea is more for creative. You see originally Minecraft was for a survival game. After that people started creating hacks and inventory editors (Inv Edit, Too many items etc.) so notch created creative. i can see you point with the wools for things such as designs and stuff now, but, notch and jeb are more based around the survival part. So they aren't going to update the wools any times soon. I would like some more wool as well, but think would Jeb and notch make 30 more wools or something like that?

Great job on those ideas of villagers! Instead of a villager maybe another creeper or a completely random skin like a chicken! I have heard lots of people asking for a heaven, I believe a heaven would be a good idea. Creating 'heaven' would be like recreating the game, like Aether mod so that probably won't happen for a while. A 3d skin could work, just depends on how you do it! Because it would be blocky and it could ruin everyone elses skin or make things worse! But i do think if you could make a mod, this would be it! An overhaul in skins and a 'heavan' and so much more! Good job!!!
