    I believe that this is a pretty good idea. I can't tell you how many times I have needed to change y levels to avoid running into another track. My only question is how would it work when two minecarts entered the intersections at the same time? Support


    They would collide and probably bump each other back. Either that or they would pass through each other since they are entities.

    Quote from yoshi9048»

    Gatekeeping: Criticizing Critics: The Critical Critception


    Gatekeeper - (n) - Someone who acts as the moral arbiter of what people can(not) say/do/like.


    A growing annoyance of some of my friends has been the absolute inability to criticize a work without some shameless white knight coming to some blind defense. It's usually includes some version of "If you don't like it, you do better!" "Let's see you do this then!" "You don't know the kind of work that this person has gone into!"


    On a personal note: Shut up, I have.


    On an impersonal note: People have these things called "taste" and "preference", my ability to pick up a palette of oil paints has no bearing on my ability to enjoy or be dissatisfied with a Bob Ross painting. I shouldn't have to know how to weave thatch to know a poorly made basket on sight. Sometimes bad is bad, and "let's see you do better" will end miserably.


    Here's the problem: In a very best case you've thrown the discussion into a red herring or completely stifled the conversation altogether due to your inability to accept criticism or allow the OP to accept it. So either you have become a target for aggression and people will make a full suite of effort to quell you or you will have killed the suggestion as people are no longer motivated to continue discussing it because you're playing the damned gatekeeper of the discussion.


    The problem continues: In a very worst case, if you throw "let's see you do better!" It will be taken as a challenge and they will. The thread you're attempting to promote dies as the new thread gathers ground, and the old thread simply dies as people flock from what you were trying to defend onto something actually worth defending.


    The next problem is blind assumption: You have no actual idea what the critic could've personally done. You know NOTHING about them except what they tell you they've done or what they'd like you to believe and the hope that you'd believe there'd be some merit to their statement. With that said, they are probably a software developer, or a graphic artist or a systems analyst or a whole slew of other jobs in their own private life where the heckling of a gatekeeper is not only shunned and discouraged but quickly stamped out.


    Finally, someone's ability to perform the same or similar action has no bearing on what makes or breaks a suggestion. It doesn't matter what they can or can't do as that's outside of the scope of the suggestion.


    The most hilarious part to this scenario is when the critic who is being accused of not being able to do better has a hall of fame suggestion.

    Good idea other than the speed rails, which make powered rails useless Support


    Read the entire thread before you reply. Speed rails aren't in it and haven't for a month or so.

    Looking for a modder!


    Currently, I'm looking for a modder. Here's the criteria:


    -You need to have already made at least 1 mod so I can actually see how good you are at modding.

    -You need to be pretty decent at modding to begin with.

    -To make a mod, it must contain just the original crossrails. That's all it needs to qualify. The crossrail you put in must fit the description of the original crossrail.


    Quote this post and give me an example of a mod you have created if you're interested. If the mod is good, I will message you and further discussion will take place there.

    As DrWeegee stated, the complexity of the system may impede newer/older player's understanding of it. But, it's overall more practical even if it's slightly more difficult to understand.


    Support; more practical.

    Idea cramming is forcefully adding thoughtless not-so-great-and-off-the-top-of-your-head details to a post just for the sake of going "Okay! There! My idea isn't vague anymore! Now stop complaining!" If your initial suggestion already had good development, adding more info in an update is not cramming.


    In short: No, your scenario isn't idea cramming, you're fine.


    Good to know.

    posted a message on Imaginary Friends
    Quote from Beechlgz»

    When I was about 5 or 6 I used to imagine characters and pretend I was someone else, mostly because I didn't have any other children to play with. However none of these imagined characters were what I would regard as friends. I was too aware of the fact that they weren't real, which is probably why I stopped doing it quickly. It was lonely and sad.


    Heh, I did that too.

    posted a message on What's your stance on climate change/global warming?

    While climate has been all over the place for millions of years and heating/cooling is a natural phenomenon, I do believe since the industrial revolution that man has amplified the issue quite a bit.

    However, there is global cooling that combats global warming, so really, I doubt we're in any serious danger anytime soon on this subject.

    posted a message on Herobrine Suggestion (No, NOT adding Herobrine in Minecraft)

    I hate how many kids at my school say "well look at the updates! it says removed herobrine in every update because they can't remove him! he's impossible to remove!"

    I reply "it's a joke..."

    and they deny it.


    Support; a personal pet peeve of mine.


    I would like to note that people will reference the old updates anyways if they're smart. (but not too smart if they think herobrine exists)


    Also, I understand this is incredibly opinion-based and one-sided, but I know a lot of other people have this issue, so that makes it... not one-sided?

    Responses in bold.
    Generally support.


    Just because something is similar to something in a mod doesn't make it bad.


    Also, there is no reason for all his uses for it to be fully fleshed out, as stated in the rules.

    I quote, "A suggestion does not need to be fully fleshed out.", <-- a direct quote from the rules.

    posted a message on Favorite video game music?

    What's your favorite video game music? It can be from any video game, recent or old, obscure or well known, any!

    Also, if you can, try to give a link to a youtube video that plays your video game music.


    My personal favorite is from a more recent game, Geometry Dash. It's one of the levels called "Clutterfunk" and it has probably my favorite video game music of all time. Waterflame made the song. Here's a link to the video:

    (the part that was used in the game starts at about 0:40)

    Since this is more or less a mapmaker-oriented item, why should it be craftable? It's not like they're making the maps in survival mode or anything. I can't think of any particular use for this in survival mode, so I don't see why it should be craftable.


    Besides that, the suggestion is actually pretty good for an easy way to limit usable space in any inventory grid.


    Support; good for mapmakers.

    Do you really have no way to transform into something "useful" as you said? :huh:


    I'm not entirely sure if there's a way to give it a purpose to be within the game.

    You can try anyways, I'm sure if you make some variations to the suggestion, it can work.
