Title: New ideas taken from Minecraft.
Post by: Redsparx on November 20, 2018, 07:15:41 PM
I have been playing minecraft (yes on 360's Aquatic update.), and i came up with some new ideas.

Ideas:
*Overhead map onscreen, (instead of having to press a button, or having the map have the top or side options)
*More Dynamic weather (Kinda like the Localized weather mod from MC) #1
*Fishing (This was an idea in the past, but was dropped).
*Rails/Boats/Minecarts
*Smart NPCs
*More gravity affected blocks. (Not just Teflon.)
*Improved death animations (I tried to replicate MCs death particles, it's just not the same.)
*Finite liquids #2
*Item frames

#1 (theres is an actual mod called the localized weather mod. Look it up.)
#2 (Another mod.)

Thinking of more ideas.....

Sounds like a nice idea MC has been taking notes from TM I think TM can learn from MC as well.

Yes they can learn many thibgs. From scripts, which isnt on 360 sadly, to a world dedicated to digging

Which gies me another idea

Total miner already has localized weather. You'll notice while you move around your map you will be able to enter and leave a rainstorm or fog.

I think TMs is an improvement over MCs movement and design overall, still find it weird how double jump is a natural ability still.

I prefer MC's movement over TM, but TM won on a lot of things. (Shops, Scripts, zones, currency, more blocks, e.c.t)

What do you like about TMs and MCs movement system?

What do you like about TMs and MCs movement system?

TM:
Double/Triple Jump. Overall movement in the air is done much better in TM.

MC:
Running. I know you can script yourself faster, but the running system in Minecraft just feels good to play.

TMs movement feels more balanced between fast and slow gameplay. In pvp players are often strafing and jumping, its much more interesting in TM indeed. MC has poor combat due to knockback and hit reaction.

I find its mainly jsut slow really. Watch any of SwiftGeneration's Family Guy hunger games and how often people were slowly walking away from danger. Without ranged weapons, combat in Tm is very dry.


Total miner wins out. I tried it and then bought it. I love mine craft too but its so great to be able to play smoothly with Total Miner's control system on a console under the TV they are so easy to figure out too.

With a controller on a console yes. But using pc controls in combat is not very fluid, or easy to pickup. Its combat alone I chose to use my Xbone controller instead of mouse and keys.

But how can it be improved?

I know that. Howeer, I am talking about storms moving around, gaining and losing strength, LIGHTNING, Tornados(I have a script for a tornado I can control somewhere...), hurricanes, radars, and more.

If you go on youtube, look up "Minecraft Localized Weather mod" you will see what I am talking about.

There is finite liquids, the only "infinity" you get from it is the shops, unless that was changed.

When I say finite, i mean like a single block will disperse over let say 13

3D finite water is extremely difficult.

Sure. But it would be an awesome thing to add.

Think the dev team should make it fun and accessible to more players before going overboard, there's so many things from a game design standpoint that make Survival Mode and Dig Deep broken.

What makes you say that?
