    Wouldn't this prevent me from having leaf blocks in the front of my house as hedges? Unless I made my house out of logs...

    How does this let people KEEP tree houses anymore than the existing type?
    .


    turning trees into falling entities is a terrible solution at this point. It fundamentally changes the manner in which this game currently operates, and is a thing that would break many ways in which people have used trees and leaf blocks as objects for creative construction.

    but a lot of people, probably in the tens of thousands actually, have used floating leaf blocks in different ways than intended, such as bushes or decorative parts. They also use them as floors and walls in tree houses. If a leaf block could stay where it was if there is a wood block near by it, much like redstone wires being activated, then it would allow people to purposefully keep leaves where they want to keep them. And it wouldn't involve complicated coding that breaks the game entirely.

    but it would also make it really easy to chop down those random trees you don't want around and have their leaves instantly disappear. floating disconnected leaf blocks would not occur naturally because that is not how the game generates trees. If you see any floating leaves you don't want because you have been chopping away at other nearby leaves, either you are doing it on purpose (which is a good thing as stated above) you can get rid of them the old fashioned way, or you can simply find the very nearby wood that is keeping them alive - a pretty unf*ckwithable solution

    do you get it now?

    Dear Notch,

    Stop crippling the game every so often trying to code some fancy nonsensical floating leaf decay, and instead simply make leaves that do not have a wood block within 3 squares (the spread distance of fire) simply vanish in a puff...immediately. This allows people to make and keep treehouses AND allows them to chop down trees efficiently.
    And this will also free you up to break the game in new and more interesting ways.
    Thanks.

    this is incredibly common

    I play my own version of a game mode where I never mine anything, I just go hunting for open dungeons and conquer them. one day I will rid the world of evil creatures!

    Now we need a block that deflects dying baby sounds.


    I agree those need to be done away with, but not completley, because the nether wouldn't be as scary.


    if this bothers any of you guys please go over to the bug report side and star this item!

    With more stars and comments it is more likely to get noticed and fixed.

    posted a message on MacBookPro can't play minecraft!?
    My macbook pro runs minecraft fairly well though it seems to run worse and worse with every new major update. Since the last update the game will automatically crash if Fancy graphics are turned on, so I don't have that on anymore. When minecraft crashes, which it will do every once in a while, just force quit and you're fine. If it crashes more than once within a couple minutes, restarting the computer usually helps.

    cobble stone walls would be better or, my favorite building material : double stacked half blocks.

    You should also absolutely have an underground/protected tree farm in there.

    you know what blocks bodies but not arrows? Doors. You can shoot through them apparently due to a bug, but you can't walk through them. But you can be shot back through them unfortunately I think. (never tested that myself but I've seen people complain about it)

    no mobs see through glass. that's why they (esp ghasts) don't try to attack through glass. if a mob is alerted to your presence it will track you through any material.

    floating half blocks will leave an opening but technically act as a full block in terms of blocking arrows.

    skeletons can't shoot you through openings below their knees (if they are standing next to the opening)
