    I like the idea of a fuse... I don't think it should ignite other air blocks around it though.
    Maybe each GunPowder dust/fuse burns for 2 or 3 ticks and spreads to other nearby GunPowder fuses each (1) tick. *open to adaptation, but using this tick count for example use*
    Enough to ignite TNT or a Nether Portal... But not necessarily enough to trigger "fire spread", except maybe to small things like flowere and signs and grass (not grass block)...but not fences or wood (unless the fuse trail is placed directly on the wooden object). However, if anything does burn it follows normal fire tick, spread, and destroy rules

    Perhaps even having redstone and GunPowder interacting... Redstone lights Gunpwder. And GunPowder activates redstone dust for as long as it is burning (2-3 ticks)

    Come to think of it, it'd be cool to be able to place FIREWORKS (which can be activated by fire/redstone/click-to-use) and have a Gunpowder fuse trail that sets them off.... Think of the fireworks displays using a combination of redstone (reusable/instantaneous/dispensers) and gunpowder (one time use/delays/has to ignite or light target)

    Maybe you could combine trip wire and gunpowder

    Good idea. Because unlike wool, burning gunpowder can travel faster and can go through one-block spaces. That way, you can ignite TNT without having to expose it. Also, the problem with wool is that you always have to constantly wait for a long time. Sometimes the fire stops spreading. With placeable gunpowder, you can burn/ignite things from far away very fast and all you need is a trail.

    Sugar, Blaze powder and glow stone powder should be added as well.

    Maybe some gunpowder barrels (explosive ans storage)

    When ignited, placed gunpowder emits a puff of smoke and ignites any adjacent placed gunpowder on the next tick (or second tick). Gunpowder trails don't burn instantly, there needs to be some visible delay.

    It would also ignite any adjacent TNT block(s), with the standard TNT delay. Having the standard delay means a gunpowder trail could light multiple separated TNT blocks.

    It shouldn't ignite any other block, except fireworks and maybe a campfire.

    A mob walking over ignited gunpowder (very unlikely given the timing) would not ignite the mob, nor would it ignite an adjacent mob.

    Ignite using flint+steel, a flame arrow, placing it adjacent to lava or an already-burning block (or igniting a block next to it). An adjacent tripwire hook activation would also ignite it. A lightning strike on it or adjacent to it should ignite it. An exploding creeper should not. A burning mob stepping on it should ignite it.

    Ignited placed gunpowder does not remain burning. Just a puff of smoke plus the adjacent block ignition mechanics.

    Rain puts it out (i.e. it won't ignite anything in a block where rain is falling, and can't be ignited (except by lightning) if rain is falling on it). It won't ignite if placed underwater. Moving water unplaces it.

    I like this. A lit fuse could just turn into a fire block with shorter burn time and every redstone tick an unlit fuse next to fire ignites. And of course it should link to TNT blocks and when a fuse linked to TNT lights, it ignites the TNT block.

    Sugar could also be placed to attract termites when they’re added and glow stone just to look cool and light up pathways

    maybe make it act like redstone as a whole but only one time? one time as in single use, for a few ticks itll stay on untill it burns out and catches on fire.

    This idea would be a good fit in a cave update ;)

    I think what would maybe make more sense for what is already in game plus to be more realistic would be to have a gunpowder covered string. I think there could be two ways Mojang could implement this, one, they could allow you to right-click placed string with gunpowder, or two, place string in a crafting table with gunpowder to get this sort of fuse-like rope. Overall I just think this would look cool in game and allow for more creative bomb experiences.

    Doesn't mean that is the correct way to fix this just saying wool is good enough.

    Giving Gunpowder a placeaple feature like redstone would be neat and give a more accurate lighting feature where as FIRE is messy and inconsistent at times.


    This Feature would be quite useful for in the "Cave Update"

    Herrrmm - gunpowder + string is a great idea for a fuse, but a trail of spilled gunpowder does still burn, so there has to be some reason for the recipe. I would suggest: gunpowder + string + slime (or gunpowder + lead) ⇒ waterproof fuse, which can be placed underwater and which won't be removed by moving water, and which will burn (but cannot be lit!) underwater.

    But if you can place redstone dust and use it to build a working redstone circuit, then you should be able to place gunpowder, ignite it and have it burn.

    Yes, and place-able glowstone dust that could glow when placed, say for a limited time only.

    I think that if you place gun powder on the ground, when burned it gets used up.

    Gunpowder explodes in real life

    I think it should be that if you place down the gunpowder, then if you ignite it with fire or redstone, then it'll explode in a chain reaction.

    Gunpowder should be able to be placed down, but not burn mobs or blocks as it moves. The lit trail could be observed by observers and could be used to ignite TNT. The gun powder would disappear after being burnt and the lit fuse would follow the trail and perhaps domino into multiple trails depending on if they connect.

    One benefit to using a gun powder line over a Redstone line is that the gunpowder line would not be limited by signal strength like red stone lines are.

    One downside to using a gun powder line instead of a Redstone line is that the gunpowder would only be able to be used once because once lit the line would gradually disappear.

    It could act like Redstone, only it burns up when it transfers a signal. maybe it could also be placed by dispensers.

    Gunpowder could form a trail like redstone and burn at 1/5 of a block every second tick when ignited, moving away from the ignition block's centre. Entities caught in the flame should take some damage, and TNT blocks touched by the flame are triggered.

    Gunpowder dust shouldn't be waterproof,  and should be extinguished and/or washed away by water, and should be ignited by lava.

    Burning gunpowder should provide light at 15 at the block at which it burns.

    Placeable glowstone dust would be a cool light source. Maybe you could use banner patterns to make glowstone dust shape to make massive glowing murals and stuff.

    I think u can use it like redstone to ignite tnt but it'd has infitite long and it'll be deleted on the process

    For sugar it may attract certain animals as they lick up a trail of it

    Don't forget blaze powder. When placed on the ground nothing happens however after being ignited with flint and steal or fire it gets a permanent burn. If gunpowder of tnt comes in contact they will be ignited, additionally walking over it will have the potentila to ignite you or other mobs.

    It'll move like a trail across igniting the block at the end of the trail. You could actually light a portal with it.

    gunpowder should also set off TNT immediately

    Perhaps it will set whatever is at the end of it on fire, or if its explosive make it instantaneously explode. Or perhaps it could break the block at the end of it depending on its blast resistance

    It would be cool to see explosions sent nearby gun powder on fire so it could more stuff on fire.
