    I like the idea, but it seems like it would be difficult to code in any AI to make them worth much other than wandering pets.

    Control -

    Perhaps Notch could implement a way to control livestock into the game? Maybe like a collar that could be attached to animals that would allow you to pull them along with a leash, so you could drag them into your pens. Also when livestock has a collar on it, it and any offspring it has shouldn't ever despawn. (If possible)

    Reproduction-

    While random spawning is simple, it would be really cool to have livestock reproduce rather than just spawn. After a while it gets annoying to have cows and chickens all up in your house with no open walls whatsoever.

    I love the idea of water slowly filling up as it continues to flow from a spring. But perhaps make it so it slowly soaks into soil/quickly into cobblestone so if you cut off the source the water slowly disappears.b

    I hate how stubborn water is. I'll have a fountain, and a small runaway stream will touch the fountain, causing it to leak out. After cutting the stream off, the fountain continues to leak despite not doing it before, and if I place a block the water will continuously snake around to follow the same path.

    Thats just an example, but water's stubbornness makes it really really hard to work with.

    Alright im sorry do you have any sort of visual representation? I've tried every combination of block and water source to get these things to work..

    From the side it looks like this (right now)
    :Water: :Water: :Water: :Water: :Blue:
    :Water: :Water: :Water: :cobblestone: :cobblestone:

    Okay well, I've got the drowning working (I guess), though I think I set it up wrong, because I can't figure out a way to make items I drop into the current actually make it through the hole. Any tips?

    Okay I'll switch to as big as I can make it without needing to go spelunking some more.. and I'll set it up to drown them.

    Also has anyone else noticed just how creepy it is when it turns night and the music plays?

    Edit: Drowning has been set up, room is dark, now I just have to wait.


    Edit2: Will mobs spawn in rooms with running water?

    Sneak-
    Might just be, but if I climb out of water while sneaking onto a plant I'm trying to farm, it gets trampled occasionally.
    Same goes for jumping which is understandable, but makes tiered farming difficult.

    Cacti Farm-

    I've built a basic cacti farm with three cacti growing around a single block that culls them all and has them drain through a 1x1 hole in the ground into my home, so all is good. Unfortunately my plants are always trampled by chickens that get in through that hole, is there a way to stop that?

    Also, Cacti tend to have visual issues when they grow up to a block without dying. (If you look on the side with the block, you can see through the cactus to whatever is behind it.

    Mob Farm-
    I just want to confirm I got my idea of a mob farm correct. I've built a dark room under my house that has an open entrance to a dark room with running water that runs into a dark room with a cactus and water running around it through a 1x1 hole to my feet. This was built with the idea that mobs would spawn in the waterless room, and get pushed to the cactus by the water. I've been waiting about half an hour on inventory idle and no loot has come down, and I haven't heard any evidence of mobs spawning back there. Each room is completely dark, And the room is 2x3x3. Was wondering if I was missing anything. Also I've explored and lit up every (known) cavern around the home.
