Well farming isn't it because Craig said that it is unconfirmed but possible.
http://totalminerforums.net/index.php?topic=2447.0
key word being; unconfirmed.

some kind of farming seems reasonable considering cows and sheep are trotting this way, & the specific words used; "quite important for a sandbox survival game"
if the word 'survival' wasn't in that quote i'd have guessed a world generator tool.
player skills and ability progression would be my next guess.

you don't need to admit you were excited about it and couldn't help leak it for discussion.. i know : P

i'm also reading you will leave us to speculate so you can enjoy observing the interest whilst farming potential ideas.
so I guess i'll start by wondering aloud if different avatars will have different base traits/skills..

Will whatever it is you are adding be an optional function in Creative mode?

haha something like that.
i continually debate with myself about the merits of withholding information, and i continually come to the conclusion there aren't any.

currently no. in the future possibly. after 2 years of considering this i'm still uncomfortable with the idea. it just doesn't quite sit right with me. having said that, enabling avatars to boost a skill level is probably ok. i prefer to do it with items, but i guess using avatars aswell might be ok.

Will whatever it is you are adding be an optional function in Creative mode?
skills are only in play on finite mode maps (dd, survival and creative option). i've also added a Enable Skills option to the lobby screen, for all game modes, which is like the PvP option, you can set it one time when you create a new map, and after that, its fixed. I'm still undecided if the option will remain for dd and survival maps (as opposed to be fixed on) and still undecided how to handle the option for existing maps.

No need, for I have already seen. For this update will be like 2.0, without changing the whole system for how it is to run.

hopefully something that helps you break things more effciently with your fist. also something that helps you get more health out of food, or get more uses out of your tools

When you have a signal go through the Transmitter, it sends it in a radius to the Reciever with the same frequency and the Reciever will send it to blocks like Steel doors and C4 and open/detonate them.
