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 have a vanilla realm I wanted to build a Queendom of naturally spawned villages connected by rails and other infrastructure. I want to take a long time to find an kill the ender dragon for realism. This idea came to me naturally I even tried it because it felt like something that might already be in the game, I was so happy to sea a community of like minded individuals.

    This should be added to Minecraft. Along with it maybe Minecraft should add stopper rails which will slow down such trains.

    a bit janky, but nevertheless allow proper coupling/connections between minecarts so they can be pushed/pulled as one. At least pulled. That sound easier to code.

    We can just use the existing chain for simplicity. We don't need a separate item just for linking minecarts together.

    This will also give furnace minecart a bit more use, although it's still incredibly slow (and useless). Maybe buff that to be between a (normal) minecart on normal rails and a (normal) minecart on powered rails.

    my few cents: I'd like furnace minecarts to last much longer under the same amount of coal, as well as a way to check if a furnace minecart is fueled up or not, and output a redstone signal based on that (allowing for automatic refuels at stations).

    I think it would be nice if the more cars you connect, the slower the "train" will go (if it does not have red stone tracks underneath) with the maximum 15 cars coupled, causing the speed to be reduced to 0. This would involve joining another wagon with a furnace, expanding the capacity to 15 more wagons, or increasing the speed if the number of wagons is lower.
    It would also be necessary to make the maximum number of cars with oven in the same train two.
    If you try to attach a wagon with oven plus it will not be coupled.
    The maximum number of towed wagons will be 30 (15 per locomotive). It wouldn't make sense to add one more since the train wouldn't move.

    If the wagons are on red stone tracks there would be no need for wagons with oven.

    I’d love this! This would be amazing for me (my world has loads of railways linking places together)

    Yes, and by use of either leads or the decorative chain block (would tend toward the latter due to minecarts being heavy equipment and not animals)

    We need this in the game seriously
