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).

    Hi I totally agree

    I was going to post an original idea, but found this, so I thought I would chime in

    But effectively my idea was for a hammer/ chisel set as a new tool type - When used on a block, it would seperate the bounding box as it were of the block, from 1 block, to say a 4x4 or hopefully a 8x8 or even 16x16 face


    So when you click on a block, it will split it into smaller blocks within its own bounds, if it was only a 2x2 face, removing one corner would result in you getting a stair block - if you mine the block however, you would get the original block back

    Example - You place a stone full block, and chisel out one corner to make a stair, then you mine the stair (without silk touch) - you recieve a cobblestone full block (wtith silk touch you get a full stone block - you DO NOT get a stair block)

    The amount of faces would be set by the game coding, you wouldnt be able to chisel a 2x2 block down to just 1 corner, then chisel again to break that tiny square into a further 2x2 face

    This would offer an incredible level of detail at the standard block size not seen in minecraft before even custom trees end up being 2-3 times bigger than spawnable ones, it would allow for minor changes to a blocks shape and allow players to create such things as vertical slabs

    It doesnt require a massive overhaul of the games physics/ coding - the game could still see a chiselled block as a full block regardless of how much was chiseled away (it could look like stairs, but not function as them)

    What if stones could be chiseled like banners but the player would need to press the block and they have 2 options decorate and chisel decorate will allow the player to chisel the block like banners and new patterns like a soul, creeper, and wither pattern. Chisel will allow the player to do what Rex Masters is suggesting.

    I agree because then I can finally make a dog house. And a bird cage and if I’m replaying as a baby I can finally have a proper playpen popper baby cage and I can make food bowls for my pets and dog beds for my dogs and cat beds

    I also think this would be a great addition. However I think it should only fully work with solid blocks where they are more likely to stay intact. A fun challenge to being a sculptor would be to connect all the blocks so it doesn't crumble (drop the block). To make it more "Minecraft-y" the chisel could remove on a 1/8th scale instead of 1/16th.
