Undiscovered Secret

Today Notch announced that even though 5.2 million copies of Minecraft copies been sold and hundreds of millions of hours played, there is still a secret in the game that no one has found yet. The revelation came up in a conversation between Notch and SpyParty’s Chris Hecker. Notch did not release any details as to what this undiscovered might be – however, Notch did reveal that it was so secret, that consulting a wiki was almost required to discover part of what the secret content is.

Since then, the Minecraft community has exploded over what it might be. To think, Minecraft has such a huge fanbase and there is still something undiscovered. With how much game time has been logged, this secret (supposing Notch just isn’t trolling us) must be pretty hard core. Especially considering the fact that tens of thousands of modders have literally memorized the source code for the game. How could something like this get past them?

Some have speculated that because of this, it could be a hidden texture feature – a bug might have been left in the game on purpose. Some also proposed that the secret could be gaps in the code which will allow for certain things to happen. Whatever it is, the hunt is on!

Enderman Should Not Delete Blocks

This is more of a glitch fix than a suggestion, but wouldn’t it be cool if Endermen dropped the blocks they are carrying when killed? This would provide a more realistic feel to killing them. Doing this would also serve as an easier way to get grass than leveling up for a long time just for a chance to get a rare enchantment.

This has been brought up several times in the Minecraft community, and it just sort of makes sense to make it happen. This topic brought up several other conversations of things that could be fixed. The theme of the topic generally deals with entropy – or not allowing mass to be destroyed. For instance, it would also be nice to see blocks reappear after they despawn.

Just so no one is confused, Enderman used to be able to pick up things like wood, cobblestone, and even bedrock, but not anymore due to recent bug changes. But Enderman can still pick up anything else. And that means that these fiends can take diamond and other valuables and they will be gone forever if we kill them while they hold these items. As good as this would be to fix, in an infinitely generated world, this is hardly a major problem.
