Theres new things coming in 1.2. Enemys can break down doors so if a creeper is following you i hope you have a basement. And also it will higher the distance to build so build a huge crater on tnt! I hope you all like whats coming.
p.s.Enemys might not break down iorn doors or make a door out of pistons.
I want zombies to be able to dig through dirt too. It's dirt, it can't break through dirt?
Creepers should also explode when the radius will allow access to you. The creeper will sacrifice itself so that other mobs may get at your position. That's good AI! It's scary, but the fear is a good fear. Embrace it!
If mobs can break doors, players will stop using doors. Duh.
This is true. It's the main issue with most of the "mobs able to break into things" ideas - building a house that even has entry points is strictly on the honor system.
For example, it's easy to build an elevated platform as your house. Put a ladder leading up there which you block off at night. Or even just pillar up to it through a hole in the floor. 100% mob proof.
That said, the idea of zombies opening doors is interesting, and would give zombies a niche like the other mobs have. Have a "barred door" (door + logs) that cycles open-closed-barred-closed-open, and you've got a bit more danger without making doors pointless. The iron door would be a useful upgrade then, as it can be made automatic with a floor plate, unlike the barred door.
Yeah, i heard there will be a new jungle biome with a new type of wood and leaves...
and also there's probably going to be a new specific mob that CAN be trained.
And now wolves can breed with meat.
but, let's find out when we download the pre-release, OR when the update is released. :biggrin.gif:
