    I actually really would like if you dont have to grind too much for the diamonds and can just go mine them and go back to your building business. Well you have to go deeper but thats actually great

    Personally I think that iron and gold farms are going to be a lot more important because not many people will want to mine for just iron and gold without having a chance to get diamonds and red stone. Personally, I would feel like I am not really optimizing my time if I was mining for things that have efficient farms without having a good chance of getting diamonds.

      It's not nostalgic but it looks fine. It'll be helpful for colorblind folks or when you're in poor lighting. And you can bet people will make texture packs to reintegrate the old ore looks (i mean hell, there's already packs out there to make quartz, nether gold, lapis, emerald etc to be uniform with the diamonds' look, check out vanilla tweaks)

    I'm really going to miss the lava level if Mojang decides to ditch it entirely. I hope they implement a lava level at -48 but bump up the diamond rate below that by a vast amount while decreasing its generation above it. Force the players to do dangerous stuff for better loot.

  52. AnnoyingDoggo

    I bet you this is where the biome for the warden is going to be at. the deeper you go, the better things you get. but somethiing is lurking there. In the dark. Watching you. Or should i say, *Listening for you* Edit: It would also be cool if the thing that happened in the warden trailer happens in the Dead zone (Like the one from subnautica. I like the name :) ) Where the lights will suddenly go dark and then light back uo eventually. The warden could then drop and item that lets you detect mobs that make sound so it will be worth it in killing the warden.

    Acum 13 Zile

    I don’t like the grimstone texture. Looks too much like bricks rather than raw stone. Also the transition between stone and grimstone is way too jarring. Reminds me of how swamps used to be before they added color gradients to grass. What I think would make more sense is if stone’s texture got darker as the depth increased, like how biome boundaries work. You still have grimstone as a separate block, but it would look more like stone with the texture darkened all the way.
