    Just remember, tomorrow comes those bricks you see in the screenshot, along with edible cactus, possibly more.

    But the Hardened Dirt stuff is fun.

    You should be able to combine some cactus water with a bowl and make Cactus Juice as a food item (providing the cactus water itself already isn't drinkable)

    It is drinkable, but I do like the idea of bowls, perhaps combine two Cactus Water with the bowl to make a Cactus Juice bowl? This would also allow more cactus juice based recipes... Hm, ill do it.

    Edited:

    The pigmen arent going to be available for a while, bit harder than I thought.

    Edited:

    Okay, Im prepped to release 1.1 already, which wasnt planned, you guys should suggest foods/blocks/items! :buddy:

    An iron ingot above a wood block makes a knife, knife and loaf makes slices of bread, slices can be smelted to make toast.

    Put other food items ontop of toast slices to make various types of toast, each with varying amounts of hunger regain, proportional to the rarity of the topping, include mario CDi game references.

    I don't know if this is in your abilities but maybe if you break grass/use a hoe on it there's also a chance to get some walnuts which could act as a food item.

    This is the best idea, but ill write it down for later.



    Cactus Juice: fills 2 1/2 food bar. Crafted like mushroom soup, but replace the mushrooms with cactus water.

    Cocoa beans + cake in crafting menu = Chocolate cake, exactly the same as cake but 2 more food regen per bite.

    Alternatively allow gold ingots (Not gold blocks like with apples) surrounding a cake to make golden cake, exactly the same instant food regen effect as golden apples but a much lower amount regenerated plus not eating it all in one go, scale as you believe is appropriate for balance.

    Lets not turn this into KitchenCraft.

    I think it would be interesting if it had some sort of Bear Grylls thing going on. Almost everything in the environment has a potential to be a food source. You could go as far as having a chance for wood grubs to drop when chopping a tree, and cooking them gives you more benefits.

    Although I don't know what direction you want to take with it, coolity.

    Simple idea: Put dyes with beds in crafting menu to make different coloured beds, no real effects, just variety.

    Redstone dust mixed into the normal bed recipe for heated blanket, slowly regenerates health and fills up hunger.

    The general idea is a more full minecraft, more blocks, more items, just more things to play with, and more food since notch didnt add a food toggle.

    But the Bear Grylls idea is nice.

    Also I contemplated adding a toilet block that gives you urine, now I cant do it because my mod would become Bear Grylls The Mod.

    Edit: Urine was going to be used as a sort of crafting item for poisons, so I may still use it.

    Maybe you can have marble generate underground. Also, you could possibly make it so that each tree type gives a different colored wood planks. Birch being a light, normal wood being as it is, and pine being a dark hardwood.

    And putting two saplings into a crafting menu gives you four sticks.

    Ill attempt it, though it may not be in 1.1.

    Cocoa will be craftable from leaves and a currently unknown item set.

    For the more OCD, allow the ingredients that can be used as dyes to be put into the crafting table and made into powder that has the exact same function, but matches the powder-pile look of all the other dyes, cocoa beans for example.

    I might make a block made out of nether and end blocks that heals you on contact, this IS balanced due to you having to fight a dragon and have the right enchantment to get endstone last I checked.

    Doesn't it make a new world once you beat the Ender Dragon?

    Also, don't know if its in your ability but you could give zombies a chance to drop an iron ingot, gold ingot, or something else. Of course it would be fairly rare to make things balanced. About as rare if not a little more than how gunpowder drops off of creepers.

    No, it respawns you at your bed/spawn point.

    Allow cocoa to be combined with all food items to add 3 more food recovery to them, cocoa beans plus melon slices makes chocolate coated melon slices, chocolate cake, chocolate coated bread, chocolate coated rotten flesh, etc.

    What if you combine a slime ball with Melon/Apple to get Melon/Apple Taffy?

    But really, make Cocoa Beans have a 1/200 chance of dropping from trees, like apples do in the weekly build.

    And maybe carrot seeds in mine shafts, then put the carrots in an awkward potion to brew to get a Night Vision potion (an unused attribute from when the brewing stand was the cauldron)

    You could add stained glass. Just put a glass block and a dye into the crafting table and you get colored glass. Although I don't know how difficult that will be.

    You could also add in a cotton plant that gives you cotton. You can then craft that into clothing, and it could have other uses. If you try to use cotton, it replenishes some health as if it was being applied on your wounds to stop the bleeding.

    Edited:

    Tilling the ground could also bring up strawberries. If you wan't to go in depth, you could make strawberries farmable.

    Edited:

    Oh. you could also make a door that works exactly the same, but it has the bookshelf texture. Perfect for secret lairs. You could craft it by adding a door, three bookshelfs, and a redstone to the workbench.

    And maybe some sort of thatch/hay block. You could make it by adding 9 wheat into a crafting table, and you get 16 thatch blocks. Could be cool for medieval styles.

    Im including a secret addition for 1.1.

    Squids have a chance to drop calamari, which you can optionally cook.
    You could make a reinforced boat by putting a boat in the middle of the crafting table and putting an iron block on the left and right sides, which increases its durability.
    Omelettes from chicken eggs, too.
    Lamb chops from sheep.

    Secret addition WAS a pigman, its STILL broken, so I changed the secret thing, you will still like it though.

    Oh, im also going to try to implement minecraftForge in 1.2 due to it having infinite item and block indexes.

    But sadly the secret addition wont get its second feature until 1.2, itll still be nice though.

    Edited:

    Added: Walnuts, Sifting Tool, Filter, CRAFTABLE COCOA BEANS.

    Sifting Tool: SSS
    OSO
    OSO
    Where S is STICKS and O is AIR

    Filter: OOO
    SHS
    OOO
    Where O is AIR and S is STICKS and H is HARDENED DIRT.

    You mix the sifting tool with leaves for cocoa, this breaks the tool. (Its made of sticks man.)

    Mix the sifting too with a filter and dirt to find walnuts.

    Walnuts fill 1/2 of a food bar, due to the ease of finding them.

    These will be in 1.1

    Edited:

    Added a stick grinder, made from three sticks and a cobble, you can grind apples and melons, also slimeballs can be ground.

    Grinding slimeballs and apples/melons is quite useful, it makes taffies, but until I figure out their original food values they arent in 1.1, only my dev build which I stem from.

    Edited:

    I coded hay bales, thatch, and stained wood:
