    So many scenarios forming in my head on how this will effect the server.

    I read this and thought "Why would they be building the crumby ass neighborhood that my house is in?". I assume there's a different Chuchill Downs you're referring to though...

    Yes, Churchill Downs is the track where the Kentucky Derby is held.

    I'm not sure I understand the point of carpets. Can't you just put down a red cube of wool if you want a red carpet? Or does it have an edge above the other blocks or something?
  • QuadWhoreQuadWhore Toledo, Ohio, U.S. Icrontian
    Yeah the idea of carpets made from 2 wool seems like it would incredibly counter-intuitive... as said by gnomequeen.
  • ardichokeardichoke Icrontian
    I would imagine that you get more than one carpet per two wool squares used.
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    I've come across three benifits....

    1. Use with pistons. A piston can push a carpet and that carpet will push whatever is on the other side of it. A player can walk right over that at any time. This can not be done with a piece of wool.

    2. Fire. Get the same effect as a wool floor with stone+carpet and the entire floor can't burn. (I have not tested if carpets burn yet)

    3. Hoppers. You can place a carpet on top of a hopper and it will still accept items through the carpet.

    Actualy Ardi the current crafting recipie is just that, 2 wool = 1 carpet. This is just a snapshot though and I would bet that in release the recipie will give us 2+.

    I dunno. You only get one button for one smoothstone block.
  • Creeperbane2Creeperbane2 Victorian Scoundrel Indianapolis, IN Icrontian
    I wonder if carpets could be used for trapping purposes, just pull the rug out from under someone into a pitfall.
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    This, Carpets need no further explanation

    I guess it would be nice not having to double floor.
  • Creeperbane2Creeperbane2 Victorian Scoundrel Indianapolis, IN Icrontian
    I have seen some of the new stuff, looks like there will also be hardened clay and zombies with a chance to spawn zombies.

    I wonder how the zombie spawning other zombies will work with a zombie grinder. Even a small chance of a spawn can be amplified by killing 200+ zombies with one potion.

    My body is SO READY for carpet.
  • CrazyJoeCrazyJoe Winter Springs, FL Icrontian
    Indeed. I will have to replace the wool tiles I started to use for the baseball field with carpet over dirt.
  • ardichokeardichoke Icrontian
    At the rate the bukkit team is going, your body is going to be ready for a looooong time before 1.6 hits the server. :/
