Wouldn't it be the new biomes & stained glass from 1.7 that would be the highlights from that PC release and hope to include the water monument/guardians from 1.8. Since they seemed to have combined multiple PC releases with the last console update.
Don't really need rabbits. Although the different wood and doors would be a nice touch.
Most of those sound good. But as for #9, do you want to do that so that you don't have to explore the map for dungeons? I think that is half the fun, exploring for rare stuff. On one of my worlds my friends and I have found 50+ saddles in all of the dungeons/mineshafts thus far!
In PC you can do all sorts of things that you can't do in console versions. I love creating things, but I also love exploration as well. I play both console (Xbox One) and PC. It would be nice to create furniture. I really like that idea.
Since we have had 20 something updates on console so far and nothing new to console only, I would guess we will get 1.7. Maybe a couple things brought forward from 1.8. That is how the updates have gone so far. We could also see another bug fix update.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I would like the ability to create a map wall as it would be a great addition to the town centre where everyone can admire the map but not a bunch of disjointed maps a nice seamless wall like the image below.
It would also be nice if we had some of the things that PC offers. (Banners, Stained Glass, More Doors to choose from) I just don't understand why console doesn't have these choices. Having the same ole door and window for each house, building ect... does get a bit boring. That's just my 2 cents...
I'm ready for dark oak from roofed forests. Also, They need to fix it so that whatever you make from different woods looks like that color wood. In other words, when you make a birch fence, it's light, when you make a fence from spruce it's dark. Doors and everything made from wood should follow suit. I'm ready for stained glass, new biomes. I'm ready to catch up with pc, but that may never happen. As for the comment about pocket edition above, They can't do anything with redstone. I wouldn't play PE because of that. That's a deal breaker for me.
