Are you sure you want to report this?

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! Also, no furniture, guns, or vertical/"sideways" slabs.

    I cannot think of a good way for a player to somehow mine and capture a bad air block unless you wanted to handwave it as scoopable with glass bottles somehow?

    Or add to the steampunk gadgetry of Minecraft by introducing a Siphon tool (iron, leather, and string) which can act as a more portable version of the hopper. It would be placeable like a hopper or piston, but usable like a bottle. (It would be intermediate in function between these two items.) When created, a Siphon might start out filled with an Air block. When used on a valid client block, it swaps the block it has with the block it is being used on. Several Siphons chained together could be used as a sump pump maybe?

    There could be two versions of Bad Air:

    Noxious Fumes - they just poison you.

    Gaseous Fumes - they poison you AND they burn if exposed to fire or sparks; flowing gas burns off while the source block burns perpetually like netherrack.

    Both types of Fumes or Bad Air should be very similar in appearance, or maybe the flammable version is just a shade or two darker or more brown, but both should be much harder to see in the dark than water is.

    In swamps, flammable air could be used tactically.

    If this is added parrot should get damaged when near it, kind of like how miners used small birds to detect such gas before actual equipment was invented.
