    I like this idea. It gives a sense of navigation in the unknown depths. Of course it shouldn't be easy to make, though.

    It needs to have an indicator of when you reach the depth that the majority of lava starts to appear.

    I was thinking of crafting it like a clock or compass like with some material around the edge and redstone in the middle, but I cant think what it should be

    Altimeters work by measuring ambient pressure. In the old days barometers used to be made of glass, so I'd put glass in it somewhere. But then again, glass is too easily available for my taste.

    What about something from the Nether? As hell is said to be the deep underground. It would also require you to actually get to the nether to craft it.

    maybe redstone in the middle, glass to each side, and iron in the corners?

    Yeah, I'm thinking this. Maybe the same as a Compass but with Glowstone Dust in the corners?

    I would like to see some rare ore just from the nether, but for now just take this:

    Now with added nether!

    It isn't like Terraria and Minecraft don't get any ideas from each other already.

    Does it matter? I'm sure Terraria got quite a bit of inspiration from Minecraft. Nothing wrong with that.

    Some requirements for the art

    16x128 for the scrolling one
    One block = one pixel

    16x16 as any other item for the meter itself

    Make what?

    I was thinking off maybe chopping off 2-4 bits off the player position, would make it move every x blocks instead of every block moved

    like in the crafting table

    I also have no idea about my art and the actual relation to the real world so I need some time to figure out how deep down the average chunk goes and stuff

    A block of dirt

    Testing receipes!

    It'll probably be:
    GGG
    IRI
    I I

    G = Glass
    I = Iron
    R = Redstone

    I'd make it partially easy to obtain, redstone with glass around it would be good, because you still need to get quite deep to get redstone.
    Also I don't think many would care how deep they are, because deeper = better.
