This is a marvellous idea. Bravo!
Diamonds all around!

Seriously, it was the same 20 people wasting 20 staff members time by complaining about the same 20 topics that would never be answered in 20 millennium, and every time I saw it on the active thread box or in my search query and saw a non practical bigoted comment attached to it I wanted to punch whoever made PPNS in the face. Oh, and even worse, people would give rep for supporting their opinions, so you could have 400 rep and not know a thing about minecraft. Good riddance, and I hope everyone forgets about the tumor that was PPNS quickly.
Plus, I hope staff close this and any other controversial topic swiftly, minecraft forum can still be saved, a good step was taken by removing this garbage.
Quote from QualityCookieSounds kinda rad I guess, but it wouldn't work without a more Piratee theme, like new mobs. It would just build up some weird and yet awkward kind of conspiracy theory of the game's story that doesn't even exist.
I give it a "maybe"
Maybe as in "Maybe if you add some more to it, or put it in a "campaign mode" that someone else has suggested earlier."
Quote from TheRackerToo much heated disagreement for a supposedly family friendly forum about minecraft. Plus lets be honest there wasn't much news or science or philosophy beyond "there is/isn't a god" there, it was all just political and religious discussion. And any news or science that was posted there would quickly be derailed into a political or religious argument. And no one's views were ever changed, so each discussion ended up just being "i'm right, here's why with statistics and articles I googled", and then "no I'm right, here's opposite statistics and articles I googled". And so on for pages and pages.
Quote from O4343I'm ashamed to say I can only recall Good Morning, Vietnam clearly, but I do have to say it was a great film.
What I liked about it... It was funny, really funny, which surprised me considering the setting (and the age of the film), but it was also very serious at times, and very impactful at those points. It flowed well, it was easy to follow, and it could change its tone at the drop of a pin. I really loved it. I think I'll go buy a copy of it if there's a Blu-ray release available.
In semi-related issues, I do recall seeing Bicentennial Man a long time ago; it probably contributed to my fear of androids, so it left quite the mark. You should probably add that one to the list, just in case someone liked that one.
As some of you may have noticed, I am no longer actively supporting this suggestion (although I'd still like to see it in-game). That means no new content will be added to this thread. Thanks for all the support! I'm surprised this thread is still alive.
For the lazy ones:
Okay, so... I was thinking about new decoration blocks to be added in minecraft, when I thought about skull candles.
These ''candles'' would be crafted with a torch on top of a skull. They will both serve as a new light source and a decoration. Breaking a skull candle would give back a skull and a torch. They would also generate in strongholds and at the bottom of desert temples.
There is also a Nether variant: the Wither skull candle (very original name *cough*)! They are crafted the same way as a normal skull candle (but with a Wither skull) and breaking them gives back a Wither skull and a torch. They wouldn't generate anywhere, because it would be too easy to get wither skull to spawn The Wither. It would also be impossible to spawn the Wither with them.
Both types will be destroyed if water or lava attempts to flow through the skull candles. Like heads, they can be placed in 16 different directions and on walls. However, you cannot wear it on your head.
There is a Redstone variant for both the normal Skull and the Wither one. Like normal Redstone torches, they emit a dim light and give off Redstone power.
As suggested by PatDay, The redstone variant could be turned off by right-clicking, allowing for secret switches (however, to make the switch secret, it would only work with the glowing version of the Redstone Skull Candle).
What do you guys think? You may leave some feedback if you'd like to, I'm not forcing you.

Check out this amazing server!
It would more likely do the opposite. It would demonstrate how well the concept works and handle some of the heavy lifting with regards to solving lighting problems and similar technical complications. Then Mojang could implement the mod into their base code either directly or putting their own spin on things.
But to the end player it won't really matter, since either way once the mod is complete we'd be able to play Minecraft with cubic chunks.
