I have two ideas I would like to share for Xbox One Edition. Please post your opinions.
Idea 1: Mojang could add a machine into Minecraft to make our mining a bit faster, Along with the machine would come fossil fuels like gas and oil. Specs are listed below.
*Machine can be constructed out of 1 Engine, 2 Redstone Powder, 1 Minecart, and 4 blocks of Iron. (Expensive for an advanced mining platform)
*Engine can be constructed out of 1 Redstone Powder, 1 Bucket of Water, 1 Oil, and 3 Iron Ignots, Gold Ignots, or Diamonds for durability.
*Oil could be found in pockets/patches underground (Vulnerable to fire). Once oil is found, it can be used to create gas for the machine via the brewing stand using rotten skin, bones, and oil.
*Mining specs: 3 blocks are mined at the same time for every block the machine is pushed into. The machine can only mine blocks with air above them so players can't just ram through walls. Also the machine would have a socketed blade to let the player equip it with the desired tools for the job.
*Machine makes noise so it will attract mobs to you within a wide radius at night so use during the day.
*Machine will lose durability significantly faster if exposed to fire and or explosions. Machine will explode once durability hits zero if it is still on fire or if an explosion drained its durability to zero.
*Gas is required to run the machine just like food is required to stay alive.
Idea 2: The introduction of Tracer blocks would be amazing to those who have Minecraft maps that were generated when Minecraft first came out onto consoles. How these Tracer blocks would work would be to cover every block of your creation from the out side. Then you should be able to use a command in the pause menu that will scan the structure from the outside in. Upon completion you would be able to go over to your new map with all the current updates and paste the structure there. Only one structure can be carried over at a time to make things easier to transfer.
