    It's a nice guide, but as far as teaching people to build goes, all it really does is shows how to use variation in the materials you build with (which most people should already know really). I mean there's a few tips and tricks like the use of signs and the fireplaces, but as far as structure layout goes it doesn't cover it much, which is where I think people looking for a guide like this would probably need to be taught.

    And don't let those "advanced" buildings fool you either, because it really doesn't give any tips on how to build like that, but rather just provides a little inspiration. Plus, some of them are probably impractical for furnishing and what not, so only really something nice to look at from the exterior.

    I don't think he's talking about those crazy mods that make 1/16th sized cubes.
    Neither am I. Splitting a block into two "separate" selections doesn't fit with the game. Every block is ONE block. You can't have two blocks in the same space (or fake two blocks in the same space).

    Sure you can easily do it with mods, but it's not something that will ever be in the vanilla game.

    I think it would fit perfectly well.

    Faking 2 separate blocks when it's really one block (which when broken breaks the whole block anyway) is awful game design.

    It can if a lava and water flow happen to touch naturally, and dungeons are made of cobblestone.

    Sir, I'm going to hedge a $5 wager that you are not the supreme authority on game design, and we will not take you as such. Therefore, your privilege of communication is suspended here until further notice. Good day.

    Now that I think about it, that was a dumb question, but I've come across random little pockets of cobble in solid stone recently.

    What better way to start your adventures in 1.2.3 than to build a tree house in the jungle biome.

    I think gimmeabreak now spawns you atop a tree next to a jungle biome.

    And they certainly shouldn't be able to be found right next to snow-covered mountains.

    If there's one thing that bugs me about Minecraft, it's the way that Biomes generate next to each other randomly with no respect to proper geography. Like a lush tropical rainforest that's in the middle of an arid desert, the arid desert being intersected by a snow biome. Just ain't right.

    are they gonna make it so you can place stuff in the little gaps around stairs/upsidedown stairs, and glass/iron bars horizontally?

    example, cant fill the remaining spaces and the top iron bar is a weird shape
