    Has anyone here seen Hermitcraft 7 with Iskall85's tree? If these are added, there has to be a cheap, non-ugly block to protect yourself from them

    So...after looking through the comments...maybe there is a way to put...like...termite repellent in an area? Some sort of termite repelling thing, maybe when you place it it looks like a small rock sort of thing and emmits particles? I don't know, but people do make a good point...massive woody bases would become impossible. I don't think there should be any treasure in their mounds, people are complaining about the gold stuff in ruined portals, sticking diamonds in every termite mound around would make them either too rare a feature or too commen loot.

     

    So main part is some sort of temite reppellent that will make termite run away in a 15 block radius, maybe it is like...soul soil and 3 stone makes 5 of these?

    I think termites would be horrible if they were in Minecraft.

    I am totally okay with whatever the termites do as long as they are consistently big like the other bugs in minecraft. I have this theory that they are super big because the minecraft world has a lot of oxygen, like that period in irl history when bugs were enormous. It's kind of stupid to be so emotionally attached to this, because it literally affects nothing, but I would like the termites to be big, at least silverfish size, if not cat size.

    For all of you who are angry about termites being added, this is what it is probably going to be like:

    There are 2-5 block tall mounds. They are 2-4 blocks wide, and can spawn a termite mob. They are about the size of silver fish. They look for wood to eat. after finding 1-3 wood they go back to the colony. this happens every 20 minutes or so. There is a termite mound per 4-10 chunks.

    Amazing how terrible this sounds, I really don’t want savannas ruined by something gross and annoying. This would go in the bin of “well I guess that area of the game is ruined” like how phantoms ruined playing at night and pillagers ruined living anywhere near a village.

    Instead of breaking wood, termite-infested blocks should instead become weakened. Wood would turn into rotten wood, and this block would have a random chance of breaking, like leaves decaying, or will break when a player stands on it for too long.

    (PS i didn’t see a similar comment above has been posted, but still a great concept to consider)

    I would love this to add a sense of realism to the game, plus it could lead to other insects[ants, flies, mosquitoes, etc.] because who wants to play a game with 0% realism.

     

    i also hope these are introduced to bedrock edition because that's what i play on.

    I think termites should produce an item that lets you recycle wood and/or change wood into different types (ex: jungle to birch)

    I'm loving the new mechanic with Bees popping in and out of the block.  I think this would be an awesome addition for Termites if they get an entity as well.  (It could very well just be a block though, not sure what Mojang is planning).

    I hate termites they broke so many of my homes when I was playing with orespawn

    Maybe what termites could do to wood is make it more vulnerable to damage, for instance creepers blowing up or just hitting it, or even standing on a termite-infested wood block would make it crumble.

    I voted termites because i think it could provide more of a challenge when it comes to wooden builds

    If termites are added then their should he a switch in the settings that prevents termites from spawning. ( This setting would be for the players who do not want their creations to be ruined. )

    I think termites should break your house yes I agree with the infestation part I think they should destroy a bit fast instead slofie every now and then you replace a block or kill a couple it’s to easy Minecraft survival even on hard is still fairly easy you should be able to disable them breaking your stuff but I also would like crawling to be added on bedrock like clicking the crouch button fast twice would be easy this is for the termite mounds it should have a hole in it you go in and crawl around maybe so you can’t cheat it it takes you to a different place when you enter you teleport to like a big block of dirt but anyway you crawl through the tunnels and find the king and queen and if you kill them you get like some stacks of wood and dirt I think meerkats should have a similar thing so you can crawl in there burrows sorry if it’s hard to understand sometimes my brain go to fast comment any questions or to clarify oh also to get rid of termites just like destroy not infected blocks around infected ones and burn or put some water to get rid of them

    I thought no real life mobs should be hostile...?

    I like the idea but there should definitely be a way to turn them off using /gamerule

    If a block was infested: Wood should get rotten and be destroyed very easily, it would also look ugly, and eventually turn back to dirt.

    How I think termites should be taken care of:

    -TNT

    -Fire(Magma Blocks,etc)

    -Water

    -Some type of trap that could kill the termites, or a potion or oil of some sort you could add to wood to repel them.

    I don’t now if that sounds like a good idea.

    Termites would cause lots of trouble for people trying to build with wood. I get that meerkats could eat them, but what do you do before you have the available resources to get one? I fine with termites being added, but there should be an item to repel them and be easy to craft, like the soul torch, but easier to obtain.

    Or an anteater so the can help with them to but they can also take out thier nest and the anteater could be tamed with with like frute or a seed and to breed them and you put a lead on them 

    Say the have a nest and it looks simular to a coral would like a bunch of mounds next to each other as if it was a village or something and the only to get the mound is with silk touch but you can break it with a tool but it wont be a block u can place down and you will be able to catch a termite with a bottle or somethine incase someone want to make an inclosure for them to have as pets or something and if you break a nest the termite will do something to you and if the nest is destroyed then it drop termite eggs to where they only way to hatch them is by having a mound and the mound is where the can reprodce more of them without having to breed them like the other mobs so the only way to get rid of the to break the nest

    Amazing suggtion I like it's freezing aspect as long as you don't attack them they won't destroy your wood,or let them attack any near wood based block but add termite eaters to protect you if you help them.

    I am not so sure about termites.
    I don't like destructive things. I thought creepers were enough!
