    Very Good! I especially like the reed block! I suggest adding carpets! (like a picture but on the floor) THey would be made out of different colors of wool, and possibly some string.

    Good alternative for Zephyrs! Will these "ice balls" be attainable in any way, or will they break on impact like a ghast's fireball does?

    Looks good!
    As a supporter (and researcher) or steamboats and their history, and of steam transportation in general, i hope this mod introduces steamboats and other forms of steam transportation using boilers (and for steamboats paddlewheels).

    have you considered the role of lime (the material, not the food) in creating cement? It could be simply attained by heating limestone if it were implemented. I have supported lime in the past in regard to cement and mentioned by ideas about cement in my thread "useful new materials"

    Although i so support the idea of separate biomes in the nether/aether, and even other realms besides these, i think this realm isn't necessary. It has some aspects i like, but could be better thought out, more original, and more interesting and applicable in game.

    No. Nether is enough.

    So you like hell? You like having ghasts blowing hundreds of bombs at you and your creations? Basically here, when in light you can stay in a spot for a while without fear.


    Aren't ghasts and the more dangerous aspects of the nether what make it interesting? (Actually, not interesting/dangerous enough) If you just wanted to build, you would switch to peaceful, or even just build in the main world. I think that any new realm besides the Aether/Nether would have to be interesting, original, useful in game, and very different from other realms to be in game or mod. This doesn't appear to be to me.

    Great idea/model as usual

    A few thoughts:

    About the drop. I think basic feathers are too common a drop. The idea of special harpy feathers used for glider/wings in interesting though. Would the idea of that be to actually fly, or just jump from a high spot and glide. I prefer the second. It would be even cooler if it required feathers of both types. MAybe a crafting recipie something like one of these?

    ]" title="-<->" /> =feather :Flint: =harpy feather
    :Flint: :Flint: :Flint:
    ]" title="-<->" /> [] ]" title="-<->" />
    ]" title="-<->" /> [] ]" title="-<->" />

    :Flint: ]" title="-<->" /> :Flint:
    ]" title="-<->" /> [] ]" title="-<->" />
    :Flint: [] :Flint:

    Or you could incorporate dyed wool/dyed feathers/sticks into these gliders.
    Gliders would be helpful not only in eliminating some fall damage (when dropped by a harpy, equip your glider and drift safely down to the ground), but would also me good for transportation (Jump off a mountain with your glider and drift a ways while descending to your base.)

    I think they should drop both these special feathers and bones. I am assuming these feathers would be black or gray?

    I don't like the idea of more Realms besides Nether and Aether.

    What's Aether?


    ...

    You should have done some research on realm ideas. Aether links:

    Jonathan buys 45 marbles from a "Bill'sMarbleMart (est. 1905)" He gives 1/3 of them to Johnny, and half of the remaining marbles to Jon. Jon then gives 1/5 of his marbles to Juan, who loses one, and gives half of the remaining marbles to Joan. Joan, having no real need for marbles, gives 1 of hers to Jonathan. Jonathan then gives 1/4 of his marbles to Juan, who eats all of his but 3, thinking that they are candy. Assuming that Juan doesn't somehow retain the marbles he ate, who has the most marbles?


    Jonathan: 12
    Johnny: 15
    Jon: 12
    Juan: 3
    Joan: 0

    So that would be Johnny.


    Nope.
    Read the first sentence. Bill.

    I think obsidian makes a better drop. After all, it is an igneous rock (from lava)

    Diamonds form from high heat and pressure, which is present with lava. There could be molten iron found in lava (the Earth's core is made out of molten iron.)

    Obsidian is very common and has limited uses (portals and blast-proof buildings.) Iron has many uses in minecraft (minecarts, tools, buckets, etc.) so it would be good to have an alternate way of getting it. Diamonds would be very rare, if dropped. You could still get easy mined obsidian by flooding the magmen with water.


    True. However, I think that i would want a more unique drop from these guys. Diamonds are good, but expected from a creature in several mod, (battle towers, mo' creatures). Iron is an idea, though. I still think to make them more unique they should be able to drop the wood of their trees as well occasionally.

    Those are incredible graphics, Firehazurd! Heck, I think this is your best idea yet! Seriously, you should go show :Notch: this. He's already talked a lot about little Goblin villages on the surface. Adding these guys would add a whole lot of playability underground, which gets a bit boring after a while.

    As for suggestions, maybe they should have dog-sized Aphid pets that produce a liquid of some sort when you right click them with a bucket:

    If separate hives could interact, i would say that they should not only fight (and steal the others' loot) but trade and barter with each other as well. A hive near a forest might trade wood for minerals from a hive near a large cave system. Of course, trading between hives would probably have to be a lot simpler/more random for easy coding. This, along with the idea that they could place torches (they are underground after all), would hel present the myrmex as an sentient, unique species.
    Quote from spritegage »
    Here's another idea that hasn't been done with another mob. There could be two different colored Myrmex, but nothing else is different between them (one may be weaker) and it could suggest that there is a male and female aspect between the mobs. Then they could have... Im gonna call them "Maggots" but it's not that great of a word.. and they could be a weak defenseless baby Myrmex in a bundle that are usually protected by a large amount of Myrmexes. They could hold a special item, or maybe just string. like the spiders drop, like the thread the bundle is made out of. It may not be useful, but a random idea I felt like sharing.

    s far as the legs, it does look a bit akward and joints would look much better, but the four leg idea is epic. It looks better than the creepers with the strange clumps as feet lol


    Baby myrmex would be awesome. I don't think it would need to be as complex as seperate male and female mobs, but to have baby myrmex spawn in a hive would be awesome! The adults could bring back food to feed the babies! As for your "lack of a better word," i would go with larvae. Of course, the larvae model would have to be something pretty special. There's a lot of grub and maggot models out there. The myrmex larvae, along with the ideas i stated above, would make the myrmex community much more purposeful (giving a reason to bring back all that resources: LARVAE) and making the myrmex seem more intelligent (torches, hive interaction).


    I believe we're suggesting a companion mob for the myrmex! :tongue.gif:. Small animals/larvae would really add to the atmosphere of a myrmex hive. Not necesarrily baby "larvae" myrmex, but something like that would be cool.

    Obsidian is common enough. How about rarely dropping diamond or smelted iron instead? If you kill them with water (the easy way) all you get is obsidian.


    I think obsidian makes a better drop. After all, it is an igneous rock (from lava) Also, this obsidian is already mined for you... Since they live in groups, you could get a good amount of obsidian from a single killing spree. Firehazurd said "Rare chance of obsidian" I think the obsidian should be a more common drop. (at least a 2/3 chance)
    However, there should be a very small chance that we can get a fruit directly from the magman. We should also be able to get the wood of the trees from the magmen as a drop more common than fruit but not as common as obsidian. After all, we can get our obsidian from somewhere else, and this way we can get more wood from a single group. (I assume there will be very few trees per group)

    About hives in general: exactly how would myrmex life be centered be centered around the hive? Would myrmexes (myrmexs? mermexi? mermi?) be out during the day and return to their hive at night or vice wersa? Or would they be constantly travelling out and into their hive gathering and storing resources as some ants (i.e. leafcutter ants) tend to do? Also, if a number of ants were cut off from their hive, would they form a new one, or simply despawn?
    I like the idea of seperate hives warring with each other. They could also trade/barter with each other. If seperate hives were to interact, i suggest some way to identify members of the same hive compared to others.
