That slowly hurt your health if you stay in them too long, but regain once out. idk something other then lava enemies and tall heights hurting you would be nice. :B

It would be so cool if natural disasters were added, like tornados and earthquakes. But the option for them should be there because if you were creating something big, it would suck so much if it was destroyed because of something like hail.

1.5 already ??? I rememeber 1.2 had 6 updates, and a lot of features (squids,dyes,cakes...etc) now you get a feature per update ? :p
Nah, I'm joking, keep up the amazing work, team Notch co. , you're heading to the right direction : maybe minecraft will become the greatest sandbox game of all times!!! Unfortunetly, my friends think 20$ are a bit too much ...

What it needs is to mix the snow and rain over the border dynamically, snow needs to take some clear blocks and rain needs to take some snowy ones. This will add to the feel of a non-static environment and blend the borders in areas like the one shown.

Too bad mojang probably doesn't read ModDB. And they're probably going to do something like this anyways.

Are tables and Chairs on that drawing/Planning board by chance?

MalekTaktak Apr 8 2011 replied:

I'd love the tables and chairs, they sound..indispensable!
I seriously can't believe a game like minecraft has crazy stuff like lapis lazuli,redstone,creepers!,nether,portals and don't have simple and fun things like birds,chairs,fish (entities)...
Anyone agrees ?

Adding rain and snow to 1.5.
Ice and snow will regrow, farms will autowater.
Ok, so it doesn't look GREAT on the border of two biomes..... --Notch
