    Dear god is that some kind of robot or somthing?
    I believe that's a golem. Which I guess carries some unfortunate implications with the shape of the noses of the villagers.

    But that is a silly train of thought.

    Because this is the first time we will have had a half block above us (because up until now, a half block always occupied the bottom space of a block or the bottom and the top)

    Go through caves on really low levels.

    Or just go to ~14 and mine straight from there.

    You could use one of those block replacement plugins if you're into that sort of thing

    Wait how does the upside-down stairs work?
    Is it a new block, or are you just able to place stairs upside down?

    It's not a new block. Just place stairs above you, and it will turn upside down.

    You can make golems like snowmen with a T of iron blocks and a pumpkin head.

    That's probably the first thing I thought of, the sentinel robot except with a Testificate nose.
    So is this one another golem? We already have Snow Golems, it would make sense if this one was as well.

    I say they should just update the crafting table overall to provide more possibilities and otherwise make things easier.



    When those arrows are lit up, you can click them to choose a different object that can be crafted from the same recipe that you are currently using. So you could make slopes instead of stairs for example.

    I'd say it'd be a great idea.

    Also, it'd be something for modders to enjoy as well.

    That could come in handy; you can only draw so much on a 3x3 grid. If we had a 4x4 crafting grid it'd be even cooler, allow for crafting more items together, but having a configuration be used for creating more than one kind of item would be interesting too, even though it'd probably require less code sorcery to expand the crafting grid.

    They added Iron Golems to Minecraft? AWESOME. Even though the Golem costs 36 Iron to make (as wel as the life-bringing Pumpkin), it has some pretty high Health, roundabout 100 (50 Hearts).

    Also, apparently they sometimes hold out Roses to Villagers. I dunno what that's all about, maybe it's a symbol of peace to ease the anxieties of certain villagers concerning a massive metal man walking about the village.

    Personally, I thought that a Stone Golem would've been a bit more reasonable, since Villagers don't seem to have access to Iron, and Stone's much more common anyways.

    Well villagers do have a blacksmiths so they must have acsses to iron.

    And they hold out roses, i haven't seem them do that?

    Do they do it often?

    Aww.
    They hold roses out to villagers sometimes.
    Also,this means that you now have a source of iron in flatworld-survival maps!Not only that,but a boss to fight for it too!
    For those who don't know,it's theoretically possible to survive on a flat world,provided you allow villages to generate.They give wood(non-renewable though),renewable food(wheat farms),water(fountains and wheat farms again),and now we can make iron tools too!(I just remembered you can get iron from blacksmith chests already but this is another source of it so yay
    I really need to try playing Flatcore some day when 1.2 comes.

    Edit:I just saw the post a few posts above me SHITTTTTTT

    I've seen the iron golem attack spiders and skeletons, but not creepers?

    I guess spiders and skeles will try to kill villagers soon too.

    Are you using a texture pack?

    To make upside-down stairs, place a regular stair block on the underside of a solid block.
