But first, several hours of the most fun I've ever had!

developing epicness for minecraft!

I'll post a screenshot later today. I am proud of it. =D

Do you want continuous screenshots, or wait and get a higher impact final screenshot? It's far from finished now, but screenshottable

Our internet connection is very, VERY slow, so uploading images takes ages. But here's the progress so far: i.imgur.com/xj6us.jpg

That looks so ugly...

Anyone else having flashbacks to the old game magic carpet?

Interesting landscape though
Enderrealm from the stronghold portals?

Well, it certainly seems that there will be an ender-relam and horizontal portals for that. But whether endermen are going to be shifted to there and whether dragons are bosses or just the Ender equivalent to the ghast is still to be found out.

And Minecraft graphics aren't supposed to be pretty

Everything is supposed to be pretty, and no I'm not referring to polycount!

People are hardly using the nether as it is, why would a third realm be needed?

Well they are adding an "air-gate" to strongholds. The air-realm is in the game code (can be modded to turn on). I think the real reason though, is people kept asking for one and then some modders went and made it.

LOL - this could be a dig at Bethesda (I know he stated ages ago that bigger mobs might be added to the game )

He made a texture image: Photo Album - Imgur
which uses this texture packing tool: [Java] Minecraft Textue Packing Tool - Pastebin.com

It's the emo dragon of base grayscale texture for me to expand upon. He's going even more emo

carnalizer - you could adjust the cuteness/nastyness a lot by adjusting where (how high) the neck attaches to the head. I'm soo gonna ride it!

Lower is eviler?

carnalizer: low head = evil. Right now it's a bit "petes' dragon", which is cute. I don't know what your aiming for. Both are good.

Holy legroom, Batman, you're right! i.imgur.com/FMAhp.jpg Thanks!
