Caveat: This is all fun and humorous, not a suggestion and should not be taken terribly seriously.
Even though I mostly play Minecraft in 1.7.10 with the mod, I am still a fan of the game as such and the recent Update Aquatic has sparked my interest in the vanilla game again (actual swimming is amazing). Naturally, I had a look at the outcome of Minecon Earth and the result of Mojang's latest attempt to involve the community via a poll: which biome should be updated next. For all of you that missed it, I will summarize: three biomes with a couple new features were available. >Desert: Palm trees and meerkats >Taiga: Foxes, berry bushes and campfires >Savannah: Baobabs, termites and ostriches
What really struck me, was that of these eight additions, four are already available in our beloved mod!
A few questions follow this statement. Is someone at Mojang a fan of the mod and secretly copying features? Is it pure coincidence? Do the three biomes signify the corners of a triangle? And when will Mevans add campfires and can he beat Mojang to it?
I know that campfires were already suggested and that he has cast his mind on the possibility of adding them. So all I want to know from you is, what are your answers to the questions above and do you look forward to vanilla updates?
