Hello, ladies and gents,


You know me. I like to build. You also know me, I often complain on why there isn't this or that feature in the game. However, by now, we should all be aware that Minecraft development is most likely going to end soon (After 1.9, or 1.10 as Mojcrosoft calls it). That means, most likely, that additions to the game will cease (No more new blocks and such), and instead, Mojcrosoft will start working on Minecraft 2. That means that once 1.10 rolls out, we wont have anything new to build with, and let's just cut to the chase, but after the few months following an update, the server sort of gets lonely. 


Here's what I suggest: The addition of several mods that add functionality to building. Right now, I have 3 examples:


-Forge Microblocks: Microblocks permits the cutting of blocks to make them into smaller pieces (For example, cutting a block of gold into 8 smaller block, that each measure 1/8 of one block of gold). This would permit a lot more detail to be put in to buildings.


-The Chisel Mod: Chisel introduces a series of different variation for some blocks (For example, Cobblestone, Obsidian, Brick, etc) which adds HUGE amounts of varieties of blocks for building.


-Carpenter's Blocks: The Carpenter's blocks mod introduces several different blocks that can be filled with another block, adding the added block's texture to the carpenter's block, while adding different functions, like dying the block to change it's hue. It also adds a "Stair" and a slab" carpenter's block, which makes it possible to have stair/slab variations for any blocks.

The main problem, with these mods, is they are all Forge mods; They would require server members to have said mods installed on their client of Minecraft to connect to the server. However, considering the recent(-ish) Bukkit thing, and referring to Frelling's post on the subject, there may be a situation where the server could become Forge compatible.


Again, this all relies on the future plans Frelling has for the server, and as always, is but a suggestion.

If for other reasons the server already required Forge clients I would consider supporting this. At this time I would be 100% against these suggestions as they would require the Forge client to connect.
