Minecraft has a lot of blocks, but what if they had more? Why do we need them? Please don't just add lists of things - these will be marked as spam and removed! Also, no furniture, guns, or vertical/"sideways"/"upright"/"standing" slabs (yes, we see you).

    I would think minecarts should be connected with chains as they fit with their metal aesthetic and look stronger then leads/rope

    Minecarts definitely need the speed boost as currently an ice road with boats is 5 times faster and that is cheaper and easier to set up, they need doubling in speed to at least 16m/s to be viable again but realistically it should be 20-30m/s for how much resources it takes to make, yes ice boats would still be faster but minecarts don't require player input so would still be useful in some circumstances at that point.

    Great idea! I think that Minecarts should be connectable by chains, and these minecarts would not disconnect unless you did

    I don't like how useless they are and how entirely out classed they are by ice boats (Which is also totally unintuitive). But not only minecarts, I believe the horses should get the same amount of love for similar reasons but this is not the place for that.

    First of all, I quite like furnace minecarts because:
    A.) If you don't have gold you can can't power rails
    B.) It goes at the perfect speed for afk nether wart farming (even on powered rails)
    C.) They act as minecart stoppers & don't get moved as easily by mobs
    What I would change about them:
    A.) Make them use different fuels instead of just coal & only coal
    B.) Make certain fuels move at different speeds & last different times e.g. blaze rods could be fast but short & charcoal be slow but long
    C.) Fix the jank from the old physics system without removing it's core linking & stopping uses

    This is a great idea I totally agree. My biggest request is the greater top speed because they really are obsolete.

    Minecarts should be able to damage mobs and players. If a player dies for that reason, the death message would be: "Playername was hit by a minecart." The faster the minecart, the more damage it deals, capping at 16 hearts, which goes well with the idea of faster carts.

    Plenty of good ideas in comments! Let me add some ideas:

    Higher speed is brought from a new kind of Power rail, OR existing power rail but powered by a "stronger redstone-like". (I saw an idea of someone else that also needed a stronger redstone to use as fuel for auto-crafting..).

    Diamond Minecart. (same recipe than Minecart, but diamonds insteal of steel)
    Diamcart can go much faster than Minecart, and if an entity is hit by a fullspeed diamcart, it is pushed away and get damaged.

    Netherite Minecart (Recipe is Diamon minecart + 1 ingot of netherite)
    If the Nethercart lands on lava, it doesn't get destroyed. (item form also doesn't fear the lava)

    I like it. Only change is that chains should be used to link carts instead of leads.

    And let them have some effects like Invisibility.
