    Cool but I am not sure how this would be implemented. What if their was a mode called realistic mode with this in it, along with thirst bar and stuff.

    JakeZulu it's very simple to implement, mojang shouldn't be afraid to make the game better. I didn't suggest this to make the game more realistic but instead to make it a better game with more replayability and this too helps multiplayer interaction become better. If there are too many modes it's harder for people to choose and it will split communities.

    I say go with a little bit of both positive and negative, but add more dimensions to crop growth than just the biome it's in. Farming is really easy right now and it needs some challenge. For example, the growth of each plant could be influenced by:

    • The biome/dimension
    • The altitude
    • Sky access and/or type of lighting
    • The season (if added)

    Some plants would be affected more by certain factors than others. Under very good conditions, crops would be slightly more efficeint than they are now. Under poor conditions, crops would grow slower and give poorer yields. Under bad conditions, crops might even die. For example, some crops might grow more efficiently if given sky access, but also be more succeptible to freezing in a taiga biome or during winter when exposed to the sky.
