      ATTENTION Forum Database Breach   03/04/2019

      There has been a breach of our database. Please make sure you change your password (use a password manager, like Lastpass).
      If you used this password anywhere else, change that too! The passwords themselves are stored hashed, but may old accounts still had old, insecure (by today's standards) hashes from back when they where created. This means they can be "cracked" more easily. Other leaked information includes: email, IP, account name.
      I'm trying my best to find out more and keep everyone up to date. Discord ( is the best option for up to date news and questions. I'm sorry for this, but the damage has been done. All I can do is try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

  1. Ice House

    Have you read, understood, and followed all of the rules listed in large text at the top of the suggestions forum?(Yes/No): Yes Answering "no" to the above question will result in your post being deleted. I'm surprised that I couldn't find any suggestions for an ice house anywhere, but perhaps this idea has been suggested before and dismissed. I know this would not be an easy structure to code, especially given the need for special "area of effect" temperature variations from the surrounding environment. Still, I thought I would suggest it as I believe it would add some more realism to the game. Ice houses are large structures which were used prior to the invention of modern refrigeration to store large quantities of ice primarily for the purpose of food preservation but also the luxury of having an iced drinks and ice creams during the hot summer months. Typically, these structures were man-made built underground and heavily insulated. Ice from frozen lakes or rivers and snow would be placed in the ice house and often covered with sawdust, sand, or hay to help insulate it. For purposes of the game, this would need to be a relatively large structure, at least 8 x 8 blocks I would think and 3 or 4 blocks high. I don't know that a special block would be needed for the walls, but it should certainly be made of rock or brick at least, perhaps the outer walls would need to be covered at least two high on the perimeter inside with blocks of ice or snow that has been covered (right-clicked with material in hand) with hay, sand, or sawdust. These "perimeter" ice blocks would slowly melt during the non-winter seasons. Again, not knowing the details of the coding I'm sure this would be no easy task to include these temperature variations that change based on seasonal changes. I don't think there needs to be any animations showing the blocks melting, but they could simply disappear by the end of autumn and need to be replenished each winter. Any storage vessels placed in the ice house would benefit from the lower temperatures for food storage purposes obviously much like storing them at higher elevations. A new tool might be required to cut ice from frozen lakes and rivers during the winter months. An ice saw would need to be a metal tool, that would only be used to cut ice blocks. Thank you for considering the possibility!
