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! Also, no furniture, guns, or vertical slabs.

    I really like this idea, because I recently tried re-creating my house in minecraft, and I had to use stone slabs and stone brick stairs in a weird and (arguably) hideous way. The addition of concrete stairs and slabs would most certainly help this, and other people looking to do more modern builds.

    I agree, I would love to be able to use concrete stairs and slabs because then I would be able to do things like colored staircases, colored chairs and couches, and for really good builders (which I am not) would be able to create structures that are highly detailed and colorful at the same time. Mojang, if you are reading this, PLEASE ADD CONCRETE SLABS AND STAIRS!!!

    P.S. Can you show the house please Cole, to prove the point.

    As a builder of all different kinds of builds, not having these blocks is really inconvenient. Having these would help to make things look nicer and smoother without having to try to substitute for other blocks

    Wool is not a "stone" block and so would never have slabs or stairs but andesite, diorite, granite, concrete, and terracotta/clay are logically kinds of stone. Terracotta is at least similar to stone but I wouldn't ask for glazed terracotta variants. Mojang stated that all "stone" variants will receive slabs and stairs so it is possible, it's a question if you could say these are "stone."

    That was my thought process too. And besides, people usually make things out of concrete rather than wool.

    This is so a must for both PC and console I do a lot of port builds and use mossy cobble and mossy bricks a lot to represent see moss but need mossy slaps and stairs there is a great mod for java that adds them but to use that kind of mod in better together blocks achievements

    Unfortunately the legacy console edition won’t be updated anymore, and Playstation is now supporting cross-play, so it’s just Java and Bedrock.

    I wish we had them too. This is very silly since 1.14 is adding lots of stairs.

    I know right! I have searched through the giant list of new stairs slabs and walls and there was not concrete anywhere!

    Concrete slabs and stairs are IMPORTANT for Sci-Fi/Futuristic builds

    I would use it just because I like making colorful builds, and that sometimes needs slabs and stairs

    My boyfriend has shown me gorgeous buildings in Mexico near where he lives with bright and vibrant colors made out of concrete. He said they'd use cinder blocks and create molds and would pour to make structures (at least that's one way of it being done.) So the fact that colored concrete/cement isn't used for stairs or slabs I honestly find shocking. They really should consider it. It's not a "weird" block to make structures out of, because we have them with colors already in existence here. And it's also not a strange and unique house (like a glass house, though I'd love those as stairs and slabs, too. Glass slabs/walls [Where the glass is half thick but won't let water pass through] would make aquarium building much easier)

    (This Image is not the buildings he showed me. The ones I saw were very modern with separate colors inlaid inside of the house to emphasize the unique shape of the building or the windows, but I feel this picture helps show what I'm explaining.)

    I was a bit disappointed to find out that concrete stairs and slabs weren’t announced. I love how seamless and smooth the concrete blocks look. The colors of the concrete blocks are also vivid and accurate to the various dyes (unlike the warm hue terra cotta blocks have). I highly suggest that concrete stairs and slabs should be added in the near future!

    First off, thank you very much for your immense support in my journey to make this a reality.

    Second, that’s the thing I really love about concrete, they are very smooth and true to their color. Unlike terracotta with it’s clearly defined texture and brownish tint (Seroiusly, terracotta is based on light brown, whereas wool and concrete are based on white, making color get on way more easily.) Just imagine what people would be able to do with concrete slabs and stairs!

    Non-spawnable, non-flammable roofing material. Seriously. I can use upsidedown slabs and stairs to make roofs for my structures and not have mobs spawn on top of them without lighting the rooftops up. It is ridiculous that a "pour & cure" material like concrete does not have stairs and slabs. It is especially ridiculous that Sci-Fi and Modern builds are not able to make use of colored roofing options, and terracotta, typically known as a roofing material in hot, dry areas will not be represented in this.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terracotta 
    Terracotta, terra cotta or terra-cotta (pronounced [ˌtɛrraˈkɔtta]; Italian: "baked earth",[2] from the Latin terra cocta), a type of earthenware... for various utilitarian uses including ... roofing tiles, bricks, and surface embellishment in building construction. (edited for brevity)

    Nope... this usage ignored by Mojang. Anyone with a clear reason for this decision?

    Another good reason for concrete and terracotta to have slab and star varients (Maybe walls too!)

    After months of the idea of terracotta slabs and stair going around in this thread, I have included it in the title and description as an edit. WE CAN DO IT!

    ive been hoping for stairs and slabs variants of concrete ever since it was first introduced in the game. in fact, fence and wall variants would be nice as well just as a build depth thing. as a bit of a creative type, myself, i would much prefer to have as few limits and constraints as possible when putting a build together. and tho nothing is stopping me from doing so anyway, its a much better feeling knowing that i couldve used a smooth black instead of a tiled purpur. there is no black detailing block. without mods, of course.

    I think these blocks will help me build vehicles better,because many aircraft have their own color and pattern

    I would like to say Glazed Terracotta should also have Slab, Stair, and Wall variants to have that color really shown for even more builds! The possibilities are endless my friend. I will support you all the way!

    I agree with you because in the village and pillage update we get loads of new stairs and slabs but when I check i can't find terracota.:-(  So this would fit in with the village and pillage ferry well.

    Blast Burner, how is the game supposed to tell the difference between rotating the SHAPE of the block from rotating the TEXTURE? Until that is figured out, such a request would be impossible.
