~ Version 1 Features ~
So you're probably wondering to yourself "A mod involving clay? No Way! I need all the grey goop I can get for my brick castle!" Well put those tried, burnt hands to rest for a second and think about this: What if you could create your own miniature army out of clay and stage the most epic battles imaginable in a space small enough to be your backyard? Now before you accuse me of being a madman, take a look at this mod. Read ahead through the pages, and you'll see just what kind of violent mayhem you can cause with just a few simple materials plucked right from the ground.
- - - - -
Here's how it works: A clay soldier is an item you can hold in your hand. It is crafted using a clay block (for substance) and soulsand (for sustaining intelligent life). Specifically, one block of clay and one block of soulsand can be used to create four soldiers. Once you have a nice little pile in your hands (up to 16), right-click to place them all at once. They will quickly spread out and begin to roam the landscape. They walk slow and don't jump very high, but they have enough arm strength to climb up a single block. Unfortunately, since they lack a decent skeletal support structure (or even skin, for that matter), their delicate figures can be horribly mutilated by even the weakest of blows. A player can cripple a clay soldier in just a single punch. So naturally, they aren't hostile towards anything bigger than themselves. So, what in the world are they qualified to fight against? ...Other clay soldiers, of course!
Clay soldiers have a team-based mentality. They respect similar colors of their race, and treat their identical equals as brothers. But when colors other than grey come into play, things start to get a little bit more exciting! You can use red dye, blue dye, green dye, yellow dye, orange dye or purple dye to change the color of your soldiers, and then set them loose to start a fight! Grey soldiers are peaceful unless attacked, but all other colors will rush in for the kill without mercy! Their natural hatred towards members of a different spectrum allows for a lot of exciting events to take place in your Minecraft world. Build giant battlefields, arm your fortresses to the teeth, and let your soldiers transform the earth into a sea of crumbled clay!
...But then again, it's just a bunch of identical clay men, right? And there's nothing interesting about that, is there? If only there were some way to make things more interesting... OH WAIT, there is!
Of course it's not just clay! there's MUCH more you can do with your miniature armies! Choose from a variety of equipment, arm your men to the teeth, and have a showdown to see which type of assistance is more beneficial to survival! All you need to do is press q to drop an item on the ground for them. You can even drop a large pile, and the clay men will split it amongst themselves.
Since clay soldiers are so small, most conventional weapons such as swords and bows become unwieldy. So the most obvious thing to do is to start from the basics. A simple stick can easily be held by a clay soldier, and is their fundamental source of offensive power. It will randomly increase their attack by half a heart, or a full heart for 15 uses before it breaks.
Another thing to worry about is protection. Because they're so small, how could any kind of armor fit onto them? Well, it turns out that just one piece of leather can be easily folded into a handy chestplate, reducing every blow from a fellow soldier by 50% for 15 hits in total. Simple and classy.
As for the issue of health recovery, clay soldiers have the intrinsic ability to digest and break apart the atoms within carbon-based food products to produce raw element compunds that can repair their weakened molecular bonds. In short, they can eat food to gain health. Since one piece of food is too much for them, they will divide it into four meals and eat them correspondingly when their health gets low. Combining all four meals, any food item is enough to recover their entire health bar. This will work for any item of food (and for mushroom stew, they'll even eat the bowl). The only exception is cake - it's way too large for a clay soldier to carry all at once, so they won't accept it.
Moving onto more interesting things, clay soldiers seem to have the ability to recognize a monarch among their ranks. Gold is a symbol of power, so using their incredible metalsmithing skills they will craft a gold ingot into a crown and wear it. Each team will only have one king, unless the kings are so far away from each other that they can be considered as rulers of different regions. When one clay man becomes a king, the rest of the nearby team members will follow it diligently and stay very close. Some may wander due to the fact they technically have no eyes and cannot see their leader, but for the most part, they become a very tightly-knit society.
Everyone knows that anything can be made at least 5 times cooler if it glows in the dark. With lightstone dust, you can turn your soldiers into living glowsticks, and any night time battlefield into a raving disco dance floor! Keep track of your troops by using lightstone dust at night. Best of all, it lasts forever, just like our current torches :smile.gif:
As if a gigantic clay war wasn't awesome enough, now you can add explosions into the mix! A clay man will instinctively incorporate sulfur into their basic body composition to make themselves appear "creepier" to their opponents. But those black specks aren't just for show! When a besulfured clay soldier meets his demise, a small explosion will bring his enemies along for the ride. It will also destroy three or four adjacent dirt blocks, but it's nothing to worry about.
For what they lack in cake-consuming ability, they make up for in their ability to eat sugar. Just one lump of it will send any soldier into a frenzied craze for a whole minute, making them more agile and greatly increasing their walking speed. They tend to be responsible though, and they won't eat another lump of sugar before the effect wears off.
In times of great despair, teammates fall and great armies die, leaving the tired souls of each individual fighter with nothing to do but rest for eternity. That's only the case for humans, though! Clay soldiers only become incapacitated when their bodies are too mangled to even bend a single joint. With a simple lump of clay, any soldier can patch up a fallen comrade's wounds and send him right back to the battlefield, effectively causing a full revival. One clay lump is enough to revive four fallen soldiers. Just don't expect any ressurecting to take place in the middle of a fierce battle.
Well, that information was all fine and dandy. But something just doesn't seem right... don't some soldiers ride mounts onto the battlefield so that they can really get the drop onto opponents? I mean, no army can truly be threatening unless it has the ability to harness the raw power and energy of one of nature's finest beasts. And well... oh, never mind. This mod does have mounts after all.
Indeed it is true, any clay soldier can be given the ultimate gift in times of war: something to sit on. Using dirt and soulsand, you can craft a few horses for your personal armies to use and enjoy. Horses have no team alleigance, so any soldier can use any horse. While a soldier rides a horse, he will experience greatly increased speed. Also, 50% of all incoming attacks directed at the soldier will instead affect the horse. The horse has 50% more health than the soldier, so in most cases, the horse will be taken as a prize for winning the fight.
When a clay soldier dies, his body will always be dropped on the ground in the form of a doll, so you can ressurect him again immediately if you just pick him up. You'll never lose a single soldier (unless you've given him gunpowder and he explodes), so you can keep the battles going for as long as you want! Make videos, post pictures, tell your friends, and heck, go outside and make some real clay soldiers or something. Just don't forget to download the mod, because you'll be missing out on one of the best things that ever got dug out of the sand!
~ Version 2 Additions and Changes ~
For those looking to make even tougher soldiers, look no further than your nearest arts and crafts store. With simple materials like flint and cloth, your soldiers can enhance the equipment they already have! If a soldier has a stick and there is a piece of flint nearby, he'll use the flint to sharpen his stick for additional attack power! And if there is a block of wool nearby, an armored soldier can grab a handful and make some padding to lessen damage even further. The flint and cloth won't be consumed in the process, so they can be used infinitely! Remember, a cozier soldier with a sharper stick is a happier soldier.
As if sharper sticks wasn't enough, now there's an even better way to fight dirty! Redstone dust is good for mainly two things - nerding out your Minecraft world, and making people's eyes sting worse than a snail in a salt factory. If you give your soldiers a handful of redstone dust, they'll throw it in their opponents eyes to temporarily blind them. And while blind, a soldier is completely defenseless and unable to attack! It works for up to 2 uses, but if I were you, I'd bring a pair of goggles just in case any dust gets thrown astray.
For those stubborn opponents who seem to walk around everywhere when all you want them to do is stand still, there's slime. If you give your soldiers a slime ball, they'll make like Dr. Scholls and apply that green goo directly to the feet of their opponents. One slime ball is enough for two counts of adhesive. While a soldier's feet are stuck, they cannot move an inch. They can't be pushed or knocked back, and will only get free after about five seconds - or if the block underneath them is destroyed. Until then, they're just sitting ducks, so you might as well get out the bread crumbs.
You'll discover as you experiment with the clay soldiers that it's unfortunately very easy to get carried away. If you spawn too many of the soldiers, they have a propensity to find their way out of their battle arenas and into just about every nook and cranny in your world. When worse turns to worst, there's the Clay Disruptor. A handy little device made of 2/3 clay, 1/6 redstone and 1/6 stick, it's incredibly powerful when in the right hands. Pressing the shiny red button on the front causes the device to emit incredibly powerful radioactive waves that are capable of instantly killing nearby clay soldiers and causing cancer in small butterflies. Every time you use it, all soldiers in a 16 block radius are as good as toast. It lasts for 16 uses before it implodes upon itself and ceases to exist in our universe. And for some mysterious reason, it seems to work on dirt horses too. So if you're looking to cause some clay genocide, this is the right tool for the job.
~ Version 3 Additions and Changes ~
So you've got a military force armed to the teeth with everything you can possibly give them. One problem: they are still made of clay, so when you talk about their guts... well, they don't really have a whole lot to talk about. That's where iron ingots come in handy. When you give a soldier an iron ingot, they will use it to craft themself a skeletal core, making them stronger and heavier. And as a result of this, the knockback of their strikes will be greatly increased! In turn, they will also fly back a much shorter distance when struck by someone else. Two ironed-up soldiers will cancel out each other, however. The downside to this powerup is that the poor old dirt horses can only handle so much weight, so a soldier with an iron core will not be able to ride one.
ARRGGH! WHY NOT BOWS! I WANTED BOOOOWWWSSSS!!!!
Woah, settle down there Mister Piggy. Let me explain. Clay soldiers can use a gravel block to create a supply of throwable rocks. One gravel block is enough for 15 shots. The clay soldiers will hold these rocks in their left hands, and throw the rocks when their enemies are within range. They will back off and try to play defensively, but if an enemy gets too close then they will resort to physical attacks. Also, do you remember those attack-enhancing powerups, like the slime and the redstone dust? Well those powers still apply to the rocks. With the right combination of powers, even just a few rock-throwing soldiers can be an unstoppable force.
Here's a little something I cooked up special for all of you. I'd like to thank a special fellow named "Popular Demand" for making this possible. Here's the thing: a ton of you seem to think this mod is about building a clay civilization with lots of pretty houses rather than fighting. You're incorrect of course, but I decided to do something for you anyway. And this is what you get: A clay soldier is now able to pick up STACKS OF AT LEAST 5 LOGS. Hear that? Not one log, and not two logs. A stack of at least five logs or greater and up to a maximum of 20 logs. What do they do with said logs? They build houses, of course! There are three different random kinds of houses they can build. 5 logs builds a small abode, 10 logs creates a lavish livingspace, and a full 20 logs will fabricate a fabulous fortress (with a bonus chest of sticks inside!). To build these houses however, they will need a good deal of space and no other clay dudes around. Unfortunately, a clay soldier who is holding logs will basically forfeit their ability to fight, climb walls and even ride horses. But if they are attacked, they will drop their logs and defend themselves.
Another largely demanded feature was a better way to manage clay soldier equipment. Well, here it is. A clay soldier near a chest may look inside of it and see if there is any equipment they need. It may take a little while for them to notice a chest, but they will see it eventually. They'll take what they need instantly and leave the rest for everyone else. And if a soldier has clay, they can even bring teammates to life if their bodies are stored within a chest.
And yet another largely demanded feature was the ability to control soldiers. Well, this is pretty much the best I can do! Use a fishing rod to guide a group of soldiers to a central location. I won't get into it, but adding the ability to control a soldier is both VERY difficult to do and causes LOTS of problems, mainly incompatibility with other mods. So, I had to compromise. As an alternate to this, you can also use a dye that is the same color as their team and they'll swarm around it.
Last but not least, it's everyone's favorite dimension-warping handheld tool again! This time, its power has been increased significantly. Not only can it instantly kill all clay-based lifeforms in the near area, but it can also instantly destroy all clay blocks in a 12-meter radius! This opens up a ton of possibilities for fun clay-based projects. Just make sure not to build a stadium out of clay blocks - you'll most likely regret it.
~ Version 3.5 Additions and Changes ~
As promised, this update brings you four new colors of soldiers! There's nothing too special about pink and brown soldiers. In fact, they fight exactly the same way as all the other colors. But if you really want to go through the trouble of getting cocoa beans just to have an additional color, then you have my sympathy! And of course, I didn't stop there. The other two new colors have some very special properties that could quite possibly change they way you think about clay wars...
That's right! White soldiers are completely peaceful. So if a band of ruffians shows up at their doorstep, they'll have no choice but to sit back and take the hurt! They spawn with slightly lower HP (15) than normal, and they won't pick up offensive items. What use are they then? Well, you could have a race to see which team can kill clay soldiers the fastest! And being peaceful makes them the only team which doesn't attack hostile mobs. Now, as for the other team...
Brawler is really the only suitable word for these furious fighters. Black brawlers are so full of rage and fighting spirit, that they will even fight each other! They will also avoid picking up team-based items, such as golden crowns and revival clay. And since they spawn with higher HP (30), there's no telling which one will be the last one standing! And as if that wasn't enough, the boundaries of war have been expanded even further with new items...
What's lighter than a feather? Not a clay soldier! But even so, troops can take advantage of a feather's marvelous air-resisting properties to parachute down from great heights. Once a clay soldier detects that it is falling from a high location and is at the risk of receiving fall damage, it will automatically deploy its carefully-hidden feather and glide down safely. But be careful! Any soldier which has a mount, a heavy iron core, or is carrying logs will not be able to use their feather.
It's the answer to two problems in one simple item! soldiers can't see far enough? Get goggles! Soldiers aren't cool enough? Get goggles!! This convenient piece of headgear extends a clay soldiers's sight range by 5 blocks and also functions as a stylish set of imitation eyes. And to make things even better, all you need is one glass block to make a set of goggles for your whole army! Just make sure to drop it on the ground with q.
Here's a feature that everyone's been waiting for. Well, most people. At least half the people in my forum inbox. Anyway, it's the new Snow Pegasus Mount! A soldier will treat a pegasus mount just like a regular dirt horse, except this one will hover above the ground as its rider traverses the landscape! The snow pegasus can also survive more hits than a regular dirt horse, but at the same time, is just a little bit slower. This new mount is craftable using snow blocks, soulsand and a feather. For more info on crafting, see the summary section.
Unless there's something terribly wrong with you, you probably don't like seeing horse and pegasus carcasses littering the battlefield during an all-out clay war. For those who do have compassion for our miniature equine friends, a new feature has been added! Clay soldiers now have the ability to revive horses, just the same as they would normally revive their friends. And they still use the same material to do so, which is clay lumps. It's hard to tell why that would actually work, but I'm not asking questions.
We're getting closer and closer to the end of our V3 features, so don't give up yet! This handly little addition enables any clay soldier to access a chest within a minecart! It even works as a unit shipment vehichle - load it up with clay dolls and clay lumps, then send it down the road! One cart could change the tide of any battle - and you decide who gets it!
And now, the secret feature! It is a secret so secret that not even the best secret-keepers know about it! It's so great, it's reason to celebrate! It's the ClayCam!
This incredible new feature allows you to view the action close-up! Just right-click a soldier and see the action from over his shoulders! Pressing shift will disable the ClayCam. The smooth and quick camera movement allows you to see the detail of a war like you've never seen it before - until the unit dies, of course!
~ Version 3.6 Additions and Changes ~
Despite the amount of clothes that clay soldiers are able to procure, there has never been a simple material for them to make a cape with. Well, now there finally is. Using a diamond, a clay soldier will not only craft himself a very flashy blue cape, but his abilities as a fighter will increase massively as a result! His health will be multiplies by twenty (20), his weapons and armor will last much longer, he will be able to use food and weapon add-ons for longer, and he will even have a permanent speed-boost effect! Just one super soldier can take down an entire army of foes! But exactly how long will one super soldier last? It's your job to find out!
And just when you thought the mod couldn't get any more intense... There's ZOMBIES! ...or VAMPIRES! ...or ALIENS! In fact, I don't really know what they are, but they're corrupted and evil! When a clay soldier grabs ahold of an enderman pearl, it gets infected with corruption. And suddenly, nothing else matters except spreading it. When a corrupted soldier attacks and kills another innocent soldier, it doesn't die... It gets all of its health back, becomes evil, and joins the corrupted horde! It doesn't matter what team he's on. A non-corrupted soldier is an enemy. And by the time you realize their piercing cries of agony, they'll already be gone. And they'll start coming... for YOU!!!
...And no matter what happens, don't let a super soldier get corrupted... or else you will have quite a problem on your hands.

This mod will work with any other mod (even The Aether, I know because I'm a developer). You do however need ModLoader to run this mod.
You must first install Risugami's Mod Loader before this mod will work. Please do not attempt to install old versions of the mod loader into the 1.0.0 client.
If you are using a Mac computer, search for a special Mac installation tutorial if you have problems installing the mod. "Minecrafter" or something like that might work.
Once you've successfully install the three requirements above, simply drag all the files included in the zip into the jar. Remember to leave the image files in the clayman folder, and drag the folder itself into the jar.

Also, This mod seems to have been featured on some site I'm not familiar with. I saw a cool Kenshiro mod on there. They asked me to post this image here, so here you go:
Despite the overwhelming amount of demand for the ability to control clay soldiers, I will not be adding this feature. The requirements for such a thing to be possible involve massive amounts of edits to the original game files, a lot of custom code from scratch and more time than I have available. It would take a miracle for the mod to actually be compatible with anything else as a result. Therefore I shall not be making this feature and instead will focus my efforts on SMP and other creative additions.
Aug 25, 2011[img]http://i.imgur.com/H2JXQ.jpg[/img]Posted in: Screenshots
I am making this so we can post any good furniture ideas that make our homes look nice. These are some ideas I have made/found that I think are pretty epic. Also, I may use a some offensive language. I apologize in advance if it offends you.
First we have these barstool-type chairs. They are made for a slab floor, and they are just two stone/wood stairs with a sign on the back.
Here is the side to give you an idea of what it is,
Next, we have another simple chair, consists of a slab with two signs and a plank back, for EXTRA SUPPPORT
Not much to that last one. Now we move on to tables! Exciting, right? Anyways. First we have more of a dining table, you can put some chairs around it and make it as big as you need to make it. Very simple, just four fence posts and some wooden slabs.
And if you need more of a smaller table for one or two people, you can try something like this,
Or something like this,
We all need a kitchen for storing all 7 of the ingredients known to minecraft. A place for storing meat and cooking cakes. And of course if you have the Charlotte mod, you know what to do *wink wink*. Most of the elements of a kitchen work well as a set, but I will show a few peices that work well individually. First is the class Refrigerator, requiring only six snow blocks and a button.
Of course we need a nice fancy range in which we saute mushrooms and roast some pork. Frying bacon too, for you bacon lovers out there.
Or if you just want a nice, fancy range hood, a few cobblestone will do the trick. Two slabs, one stair, and some plain blocks
Next, we require a dishwasher for washing those dirty bowls after eating mushroom soup. Just an iron block with a stone pressure plate on top of it and a button on the side.
Move it up a block and put some planks under it and it can be a microwave. Perfect for those lazy days when the last thing you want to do is use coal to manually cook some pork.
After a long day in the mines, and drinking enough milk to make a cow pass out, admit it. you have to take a ****. So that's where this section comes in handy. There are two kinds of toiletS I have here, one has a standard flush lever, the other has an old fashioned pull chain.
Now after you have done your buisness, your hands smell like **** and pubes. We don't want that on our pickaxe, do we? We need to wash out hands! There are two sinks here, main diffence, one is bigger then the other. they are pretty simple and explain themselves. (try to replicate the mirror if you want, I used an NPC as a joke. functional mirror in minecraft, **** yeah!)
With the new 1.0.0 blocks, Cauldrons make bathrooms THAT MUCH EASIER! Here is a sink, and a toilet design. Have fun doing your buisiness!
Bathtubs. Because you smell like Enderman ****. Just take a bath.
Now you are ready to do whatever you need to do! ****, vomit, masturbate, rapidly press shift while standing behind the Charlotte NPC. Anything.
You want a flower pot, but bricks are too massive, and dirt is too ugly. This is a simple solution that's better then a sign. A trapdoor. Easy right?
Now haven't you always wanted to have your storage room look good enough to invite a creeper inside? Well here are some decorative storage methods that serve no purpose whatsoever! First is a shelf made from four wooden stairs and five wooden slabs.
Fish are grand. Even though you don't actually HAVE fish, the tank still looks cool. Just use some hax to get a couple ice blocks, and then you have a tank. Horah!
Lets just cut to the chase. Your walls are bland and empty. Paintings just don't cut it. You need a shelf to store your tools and supplies. Here is an easy design that only takes a few trapdoors and a couple fence gates. You will need a couple placeholder blocks to put the fence gates into position.
Are you a WARRIOR with class and [i]elegance/i]? Try making a display on your wall and placing the dragon egg inside. It makes you look ****ing epic if you got it the correct way. I have one in my house, and look at me!
And next is a wardrobe that still looks good, but serves no storage purpose at all. Just two wood doors, two trapdoors, and four wood stairs.
Decotative desk/shelf for a stufy area? You betcha! Here we have a shelf for use. You and the creeper will have a place to work!
Now lets say you want a nice looking workshop/kitchen area. This is a nice method of making your kitchen look FABU. Try putting trapdoor over your furnace! Or, try making a refrigerator out of six snow blocks and a button! I know you want to!
Outdoor furniture (patio)
Now come on, we all want to grill pork chops under the sun with our next door creeper friends! Come on! Here is where I will post some pictures of patio furniture. Now come on, you have to admit, a patio isn't a patio without folding chairs.
What about having a nice summer lunch in the forest? Grass is disgusting, and you can't eat standing up. Here is a picnic table made very simply, all it takes is woodslabs and wood stairs. Use the woodstairs to make the benches and the legs of the table, and then the slabs for the floor and the tabletop. Credit goes to CaduceusGUILT for his awesome idea.
And of course, you can't grill pork chops without a nice charcoal grill.
Next, we have a minibar, granted, I built it inside. I would suggest building it outside, so you can drink milk in the sun. Anyways. Pretty simple, just a few logs, levers, stone pressure plates, fences, and bookshelves.
Here, we have a couple small decorative trees, designed by DeadAlready. Basically, just have some fences, with a log at the top. Put leaves around the log. Fabulous for gardens and functions as a palm tree for deserts and beaches.
Lastly we have a hand pump well. If you want to stick with the overall theme of minecraft, I bet using cobblestone slabs would make this look AWESOME. Just set this up with an infinite water supply under the well, and it will look pretty good.
Admit it, you have to have something to do on those late nights, when you don't feel like crafting. Why not watch television, or play some pool? First, I show you a large plasma screen television! made only from a few simple supplies. It was built on a slab floor, but you could easily make it for a flat floor. This television features hi-def, 80 inch, and a built in DVR. check out those bigass speakers too. Due to my medieval TP, I guess we are watching the history channel.
Next up we have a smaller television. Prehaps if you have a not so mobile home, or your log cabin isn't a huge castle. Just two black wool, a painting, two signs, and two trapdoors.
Need some snacks to finish off your home theater? Popcorn and candy floss!
Now, we have some epic computers by DeadAlready, you can find him above. They are really simple and the definintely are computers. Pretty self explanatory, don't think I need to tell you how to make them.
Next we have a lovely set of stereo systems. There is a surround sound set, but if you want to lear about that, check out his thread. These are three sound systems with hi-def, bass boost, and of course, 15 channel EQ. But that's besides the point. These stereo's work great for blasting your cheesy pop, or shitty rap. Again, creds to DeadAlready.
Last but not least, we have a high end gaming computer. Sure it is frozen on one screen, and it only runs 16 bit graphics. But come on, you are the ONLY one with a computer! Feel special! Those creepers are going to be outside staring at you playing MineMinecraft for DAYS! Also has quad core, 8GB of RAM, and 240GB of storage space. Enjoy being pent up inside for days!
Now if you don't feel like being a couch potato, you can do something like, play pool, or play pinball. Really cheap entertainment.
Maybe you don't feel like playing a game? You want to pump your guns, practice to beat up creepers, and impress the neighbors? GYM EQUIPMENT HOOAH. There is a punching bag design, and a benchpress design. Worse comes to worse, it will gather dust in the corner of your basement.
Furniture fit for a KING
Lets face it, some of have so many supplies that you just don't know what to do with them. Let's say you need some fancy expensive furniture. Check here to see all the fancy things you have to build. First is a throne fit for a king!
And we have a bed that is made from the finest imported silks, straight from the hands of Chinese children.
Nothing says fancy like a Grand Piano in your living room. Seriously. It doesn't work, but it looks ****ing COOL. Just some black wool, a couple fences, and some form of bench. The best material for the keyboard is some form of stair, but anything works.
Post any of your ideas that I didn't mention below, or if you just want to tell me how amazing/spectacular/stupid I am, you can do that as well. Thank you! I am looking for some good uses of the new 1.8 things. If you have any cool furniture ideas that involves the new blocks, I would love to hear them.
I don did make a banner for this fabulous thread. If you are interested in promoting the good word, just take this and put it into your signature! Thank you!
If you like my ideas, TELL ME! I want to know if you liked my work!

For the love of god, put that massive wall of text in a spoiler, like I just did.
Sep 14, 2011EDIT: Notch will disable the block-carrying ability of the endermen; they will no longer remove blocks. Notch admitted it was a horrible idea: http://twitter.com/#!/notch/status/116186387878920193Posted in: 1.8 Update Discussion
We don't debate mobtraps anymore, and we don't debate endermen anymore; the thread no longer has a reason to be. Thanks to all who participated with politeness, reason, and arguments!
I spent hours these past few weeks building a giant death factory for mobs - the hostile sort - and I finally managed to make a very efficient one. Now, I updated, and within two minutes of activating my death factory, everything went wrong. There was water where there shouldn't be. I suspected enderman. And I was correct. Upon inspection, tons of blocks had been removed; my channels were completely sabotaged and my whole construction rendered useless. It was a real pain to fix it up because it's all in the dark and made of channels you can't jump out of and etc.
Now it's fixed, but if I turn off the peaceful mode, they will once again destroy my creation.
I think enderman's ability to move around blocks should be cancelled. If they move blocks around in the wild, it makes no difference and you'd hardly notice; and when they remove blocks from your constructions, it's not particularly fun, and rebuilding is a major pain in the potato, especially if you have a device made to spawn mobs and kill them afterwards.
I read somewhere that endermen would only move natural blocks and not those placed by the player, but all the blocks I used in my trap were placed by me. Is this a bug that will be solved in the near future or will enderman always be able to displace player-placed blocks?
If enderman continues to have this ability, and if there's nothing you can do to stop him, then I must forget about my massive death factory, and much more, since I used this to get gunpowder to get TNT to flatten the land around my home and many other things.
If you too wish enderman couldn't remove your blocks, say so in this thread.
PS: If you disagree and like that enderman can remove your blocks, I'm sure you have valid reasons in other contexts, but if you have created a complex construction which needs to remain just as it is to function, you will understand how handicapping enderman can be: it's either peaceful mode forever, or forget about your inventions altogether (since my factory can't work on peaceful).
EDITS: I have been told a million times to lower the ceiling down to 2 blocks; new question: are we certain that endermen won't spawn in 2 blocks high rooms? and if they still spawn in there, can they remove blocks while suffocating?
EDITS: We are no longer discussing mobtraps, solutions were offered, discussed, and that debate is no longer up; the current discussion centers around the general landscape and how endermen will inevitably make everything look nasty; also, we discuss whether it's any fun to spend that sort of effort protecting everything by slathering our lands with torches or flooding everything.
EDITS: If, for a reason or another, you don't want to discuss enderman but merely remove his ability to move blocks, here's a mod that will do so:
Don't forget to delete some folder called meta-inf in the minecraft.jar file. If you can't open the .jar, know that it can be opened with winrar or any program of the sort. These were the two problems I've had when I installed that mod: unable to open jar and then having forgotten to delete meta-inf.
Sep 11, 2011So, here's the main question:Posted in: Discussion
What do you personally believe happened to Minecraftia that resulted in the world we see today? What post-apocalyptic event do you think occurred?
Some things to keep in mind regarding 1.8:
-Endermen; where do they come from?
-Strongholds and Abandoned Mineshafts indicate that a society did once live there
-NPC villages are hard to judge right now. If they're pigmen, then humans have died off, becoming zombies and skellies. If they're humans, then mankind's struggle for survival continues. But right now, as ghost towns, they are still relics of a long-dead society
I think that it was once an Earth-like planet, just less advanced, more fantasy based. They were miners, builders, etc. They built strongholds and mineshafts. But I think they messed around with something they shouldn't have. I think they probably opened a portal to the Nether inadvertently. This unleashed plagues upon the humans: they were killed off by the demons within, like the ghasts. Pigs were twisted by the infection into creepers, and the spiders became mutated minions of the Nether. The humans killed were brought back as servants to the Nether, as zombies, which eventually decayed into skeletons. The few brave souls who tried to venture into the Nether were transformed by the darkness within, into the Endermen. They are shells of humans, who cannot bear to be seen as the monsters they became, and are particularly vicious towards you (since you are a human, and they envy your pure form).
After every human was killed, the gate closed, leaving small boxes around the world, small portals through which the demons can re-enter Minecraftia. After many centuries, the old world was buried over, and so Steve's journey began.
As far as villages go:
-Empty: They used to be human villages until they all died.
-Pigmen/ Anything Non-Human: They became the dominant species following the death of man.
-Humans: They weren't killed off by the Nether infection, but only suffered major casualties before managing to close the portal.
Let's hear your theories!
Edit: By the way, feel free to poke holes in my theory. I'd like to make it as logical as possible in context of the game, and am open to criticism!
