    Thank you! And I guess I would be open to more animals but I think horses would work best.

    That is a bratty way to put it. Why? Cause NOBODY CARES! It's a good idea, but you just are not supporting it because he did not do something.


    FYI, you do this on every single post you make in suggestions


    Quote from Deonyi

    So you are willing to not support a perfectly valid suggestion just because it does not wish to merge with another thread which is badly designed and slightly vague.

    Furthermore, I doubt it is possible to merge without consent as the other OP may not wish to include stables in HIS idea.

    Thanks :)

    Yes but they are related to the forums.

    And just use a fake email.

    It's a complicated answer. If I had to say yes or no I would say yes though.

    I guess I am okay with having them in the overworld but chickens don't fit in the nether. I would have liked to see zombie pigmen riding nether chickens -- chickens that are black maybe? Also maybe neutral because being attacked by a chicken is too absurd to pass up.

    Only way I think... any kind of path you want to make will be destroyed or you'll be knocked off because of ghasts shooting you. I tried to do it many times.. But because a lot of the time it involves making floating bridges across a giant lake of lava...

    I agree it's cheep a bit.. But.. The main reason is I don't want it taking a week to make when I could do it in 2 hours or less o peaceful.


    Okay, guess I will try that, I just wish there was a less cheap way.


    Quote from X_crafter

    I am fine with how it is, the only reason that I would like this to get implemented is because... GHASTS ARE SO "#"#$%" ANNOYING!!! Seriously, when you hear a ghast for a long time it becomes irritating, but when you hear 4 or 5 at the same time for a loooooooooong time... oh man

    Aww I kind of like the sound of ghosts...they're so netherish. They scare the crap outta my dog though.


    Quote from GregNelson

    Ehh... I don't seem to have too many problems with that... I just remember to build walls around my paths out over lava. cobblestone is in abundance and doesn't get destroyed due to ghast fireballs, and as long as you have at least a 1-2 block wall on either side of you, it is very difficult for the ghast to knock you off your bridge, and their fireballs don't really do that much damage individually.

    My BIGGEST problem with Ghasts, I have to admit, is trying to harvest glowstone. Invariably, a large portion of glowstone would be available directly over a sea of lava... which makes it difficult to gather in the first place, but more so when ghast fireballs keep blowing it up and into the lave before you can build a platform to catch them.

    Used to really me off before Blazes were introduced, because glowstone was a limited resource prior to that point.

    Now.. I just make sure I take an enchanted bow with me, and if any ghast is truly annoying me, I kill it. If not, I wait until they are over ground that I can get too... or try to lure them to ground I can get to before killing them to collect their drops. remember, the more ghasts you kill, the less likely that a new ghast will spawn to replace it, and with a max MOB spawn cap in an area, you can work that to your advantage.

    I also bring a few stack of cobble with me, and when they start to crater the ground around me, I just patch it with cobblestone, it looks kind of patchwork when you get done, but becomes far more ghast resistant in the future as you go...and carpeting the whole ground in cobble just takes too much time.

    I honestly don't mind this because glowstone is meant to be very hard to get and each block drops several shards anyway. But I'm glad they made blazes drop them.

    Full support. I want to see at most 2 in the entire nether at one time. I too have had times where I was overwhelmed by four ghasts all shooting at me at once. Now that is just ridiculous. I have had a beautiful, well sort of beautiful nether turned into a fiery crap hole by ghasts.

    This is basically my experience too :P


    Quote from GregNelson

    I haven't nearly had that much issues with ghasts that I end upon a floating island.... but I did learn a valuable lesson to always bring a lighter with me when one of their fireballs snuffed out my nether portal within seconds of entering the nether for the first time (in that world)... I just stared at it (the portal) dumbly for about 2 minutes, going, "but..... but.....that's... just.... wrong..."

    But yeah... I just start with a few cobble stone pillars fairly evenly spaced around my portal, then do a grid for a ceiling.

    Ghasts tend not to shoot straight level E/W or N/W or even vertically ... so it is hard for them to shoot through a cobblestone mesh... not that they don't try....

    Eventually, I patch the craters and holes and the mesh, and I usually plan to dig into the nearest netherrack hill/wall to get out of my portal.

    But once the Ghasts loose sight of me, they not only stop attacking, but they tend to wander off and eventually despawn to be replaced by a new MOB.

    Okay, I will have to try that.

    Honestly the only reason I haven't build cobble safe areas is because there are so many ghasts around leading to them launching so many fireballs at the area it becomes a floating island.

    That's not a bad idea. I will have to think about that, because I can't imagine it would be fun for people with multiple bases.
