    Describe your idea because that sentence means nothing. Magma cubes grow in lava, that is interesting but then what? Will they do more damage? Do they split into more cubes? How does their growth affect gameplay?

    Thanks for the advice my original post was not very detailed and by editing it gave me some new ideas for these neat addition for this mob.

    Huh, Forgot to mention that when the XL Magma cube splits it becomes a Larges and two small sized Magma cubes.

    I don't think there should be a magma cube larger than its 3rd level of size in survival.  3 variants are enough.  But I do like the idea of them growing when contacting lava.  However, I don't think they should target lava as that makes them more frustrating; they should just continue to target movement towards the player.

    Perhaps the player could lead the attacking magma cubes towards lava, that way they can have a way to farm more abundant magma cream from the grown cubes.  This partly comes from a similar idea I posted about before.
