Gold is worthless at the moment, so don't feel too bad.

I don't like the idea of having to sit by and do nothing on a server when I die, but I don't want to just respawn in a set point. When you die, you should respawn around 400 blocks away from at least two players (so you're not completely out of the multiplayer action) and no closer than 200 from any player. (so you don't spawn in the middle of a town or something, you'll have to make your way to it.) And then it'd probably also be good to prevent the player from spawning too close to player-made blocks like planks and cobblestone, so you don't spawn in the middle of someone's fort while they're away.

What about having glass or something that has reflections also reflect the ghost for people that cant normally see them.


that or a respawning ritual that mainly speeds things up.


or a temporary slowness or SOME sort of temp penalty

One thing that I like about Minecraft is that it balances creative gameplay with destructive gameplay. I think that craftable instruments would be a very cool way to contribute to the creative aspect.

For instance:
(A is air, W is wood, S is string)
AWS
WWS
AWS

or something to that effect would make a three stringed guitar/lute thing. You could control the frets with the letter keys, so QWERTY would control the top string and ASDF the middle string etc, and strum with space, and maybe use the far end of the letter keys to just pick one string.

Playing a soulful tune atop a high tower of the castle you built yourself would be awesome.

I second, third, fourth, and fifth Fishy's suggestion. Being able to also write sheet music on paper and play it from it automatically would be sweet, especially in multiplayer. (Still Alive tune for sale! Get 'em while they're hot!)

Only drawback would be annoying novices randomly hitting keys and mashing the space bar all over a town... *shudders*

ADD RUGS


EDIT: actually add the dying stuff and add a rug machine or something that makes a patterned rug based on how many / what cloth blocks in it.



or root vegetables like potatoes and beets(could also be used for dyeing)

~I don't know who, they think they are, bashing a perfectly gooood... Lute?~
But yes, some form of music-making would be good. Mostly because we need something creative- something for players to do together instead of building. To do during all those lonely nights in your fortress. Some diversion would be good and add life to towns.

Dear C418,

If you ever plan on changing up the Slime's sound, may I suggest chewing gum loudly with your mouth open?
I don't see why.

I don't see why.

I was just reminded recently (on the bus  Undecided ) that it is a sound that starts out to not be that annoying but grows to be incredibly so. It also sounds like the sound a slime would make. Just a thought.

Ceiling Creeper watches you mine


And I heard Rumor of Notch putting in a magic system?  Apparently that's what gold will be used for.

Oh my god, this is probably the funniest thing I've seen all week!

I'm glad there's support for the instrument idea.

Other ideas:
(W is wood, R is reeds, L is leather, A is air)
WLW
WAW
WAW

makes a drum

AAA
RRR
AAA

makes a flute

I haven't heard the slimes my self, but the general census on the minecraft forums (warning, high 1-year-old-nazi density) is that the slimes sound like dramatic fapping.


Oh yeah, I'm making a cool castle.

Aw, my latest world has now become so big it just crashes when i try and load it. Damnit, and my tower was just showing promise too! Weirdly i didn't encounter a single natural cave system, whereas the land formations above ground were pretty awesome.

I can't remember if I posted here yet or not... but I just had to stop by to say that this game is incredibly addictive.  Even if I'm just doing stupid things like tunneling down to the lava and then trying to dig a really long passage underground in the hopes of finding secret block caves, I'm having fun doing it.
