Heres what i think of this suggestion:
Painting-Good i like this. But only the creator of the painting should be able to edit it. Because greifers could destroy it. "I never painted this swastika"
Literature-Awesome. The books are taken care of in the 1.3 update. The bookshelves and scrolls are awesome thoh.
Music-Good, good. I like it. But make the texture for trumpet better. Atleast put black shading on the outside.
Well, the literature is going in, all you people living under a rock snapshot wise!

Christianity in a nutshell: We have all sinned, so we deserve eternity in hell. But God (God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit) loved us so much he sent His Son to die for us, to take the punishment meant for us. All we need to do is accept it, and we have heaven headed our way.
The wonderful geniuses at ABP Mods have turned this into a mod! Check it out!
How it is now: Right now, painting may seem in good shape as you can craft paintings using wool and sticks. However, what these painting look like is random and pre-defined by the texture pack used. No one sees the same thing (unless they are all use the same texture pack), and users have to go out of game if they want there own painting.
How it could be improved: Custom paintings! Allow players to edit paintings in game. Custom paintings will become unique, and will stay the same even if broken and placed somewhere else.
What I propose: Paintings stay the same (in terms of how they are crafted and displayed). However, a new tool is added:
The palette is crafted like this:
Some people have said that it should use yellow instead of green dye, to fit the primary color. Green is, however, the primary color in subtractive mixing, which is what I was using. Also, this would make it much easer for someone spawned in a grassy area (as they have flowers) then one in a desert.
Anyways, The palette is used to create custom paintings! You place paintings normally but when you right click on a painting with the palette, the painting becomes a custom painting. The size of the painting stays the same, so you can have any shape of painting that is in the game. The palette has durability just like any other tool, with each custom painting you create, the durability goes down. You could make 4 custom paintings with one palette. When you edit a painting, it opens up and editor that looks like this:
So how does this work? Pretty simple, actually. You see the colors on the right? Those are the colors you can use. It may not seem like a lot, but with these colors can create tons of fancy-looking pixel paintings. On the right is your brush size. They look pixely because the painting enlarged, so it must be so it can be shrunken down again.
Anyways, so you work on your wonderful pixel painting until it looks great:
Then, you just hit done, voilå! It is changed in-game:
But what if you want your custom painting moved? Not a problem! When you break your painting, it drops an item that looks like this:
This is a custom painting icon. It hold all your painting data, and is non-stackable. This is used to move your paintings from place to place. When you put it down again in a different spot, it shows the same painting:
And finally, custom paintings can be edited again just by using your palette again. Be ware of vandalism!
Oh dear. Better hire a guard for that painting exhibit.
Speaking of vandalism, some commenters have complained that griefers would use this as a tool to paint disgusting, inappropriate pictures across the walls. And yet, this is a game where you can write and profanity you please across the sky. So it wouldn't add problem we don't already have and are dealing with by banning people.
Why we need this: Imagine a multiplayer action house, selling great works of art to the highest bidder. Or a dark castle full of creepy paintings of dead players. Or a colorful menu for a warm smelling bakery. Or a dusty atlas of the near by coast line with a big red X where you buried your treasure. With custom paintings, you can make anything from bright green portrait of a creeper to a practical map of your underground base.
This... is amazing. The whole idea of the art of music is incredible. It really makes me wish I could get the deobfuscation working on my computer so I could mod... So someone please try and make this now thank you.
