    This is in today's snapshot. Thanks for the feedback, everyone.

    I fully agree here.  Functionally, honey blocks and slime blocks are too similar.  This creates a really major issue within the game:

    Honey is much more common and much easier to automate than slime.  If this stays as-is, why would players find the need to make slime farms anymore?

    If they no longer stuck to one another, it would at least be a good reason to get both as having the two blocks with each other would give so much more potential to flying machine creators!

    Especially things like flying piston walls, block walls, etc. that currently aren't possible b/c of how slime block mechanics work.

    In larger quantities slime is a lot easier to farm.

    To better grasp the potential of this, I strongly encourage looking at the collaboration Sethbling and Mumbo Jumbo did called Colored Slimeblocks, which were dyed slimblocks that did not stick to different colors of each other. Like others have said, this would open up way more possibilities than having honey blocks just be slightly different slime blocks.

    I really hope this will be a thing. Don't make slime blocks pointless in redstone.

    Nothing at all in the game indicates that slime in the minecraft world is water based. Sounds like a made up excuse that won't actually pan out in game (as it wouldn't be apparent at all). The only thing that would be seen or gathered from the player's perspective would be 2 sticky blocks that don't stick together for some inexplicable reason.

    Yes, please. I was really disappointed when the snapshot was released. Right now its only use is its stickyness, but not sticking to slime blocks would be great. Alternatively, maybe add a thing that you can make a particular side of a block sticky, but that wouldn't be as easy to use.

    Same thought as the others. Honeyblocks not sticking together can give many opportunities of great and compact contraptions! I would love that

    Holy slimeball!

    Honestly, even more than that, I'd be seriously annoyed at mojang for the missed opportunity if it did stick.

    Although I do not agree with the user that thinks honey blocks will make slime blocks obsolete. (rather I think it the other way round, for any purpose that doesn't involve its stickyness to mobs and players)
    Slime blocks are far far more easily farmable (especially at scale)

    I totally agree, a different sticky block would be a revolution for redstone, and it would give a porpouse to having both blocks, owing that currently, you only need one type of block(honey or slime) to make contraptions. And since the honey block is more easier to obtain at the start of the game, it would render slime blocks pretty much obsolete. So I'm all for this feature

    Minecraft Honey suggestions:
    - Honey piston: Gravity blocks don't fall when attached to it. Doesn't release block on a 1 tick pulse.
    - Honey block (already in game, but adjustment): Doesn't stick to slimeblocks.

    This should also be pretty straightforward to implement. Just make honey and slime to "see" each other as glazed terracotta.

    Another thing that should change is to not make them transparent. If you try to make a flying machine with only honey blocks, the observers do not send a signal through them to power a piston. I think they should not be considered transparent to be exactly like slime blocks except for them sticking to each other.

  • Avatar

    It is not because they are transparent, it is because honey isnt a full block. I think it should be changed

    I agree too. Either minecraft wants to make slime and honey similar to real life, so they shouldn't stick to each other, or slimes and honey shouldn't really make sense to begin with, therefore shouldn't stick in a design perspective.

    Of course they didn't make sense to begin with... why not stick to glazed terracota? is it too smooth? what about the block literally called "smooth quartz"? and how can you stick to non full blocks, like trapdoor, without direct contact?

    Because it makes minecraft a better game' that's why. So make the game better one more time and make slime blocks not stick to honey blocks.

    I think this would be such a useful feature and a very good addition to the game. It reminded me of the separation of oil and water, so this isn't totally unrealistic.

    Yes, more than kind of slime block (e g colored slime blocks) is a frequently requested feature and this really seems like the perfect time to implement it. I think few people imagined honey blocks being in the game and working like slime blocks, but since they are now they are the perfect solution to the problem instead of more mod-like concepts like colored slime blocks.

    Redstone doesn't pass though honey but passes through slime so that's a difference

    But what about redstone flying machines

    C’mon Mince Rafter. Why are you shooting down this suggestion? There’s literally nothing negative about this.

    It seems that hearing it spammed a ton has given me a negative and visceral reaction to the idea, which clouded my judgement here. They do at least give a decent explanation for the behavior, rather than the typical "but it can be used in redstone" as a (false) reason/justification for the behavior itself.

    That would be fantastic!

    This is a much needed addition. Redstone is getting stale again, and being able to use two different non-interacting sticky blocks is like a fresh breeze for the Technical Minecraft community. Can't wait to make some really cool flying mathines with this. (Maybe even diagonal ones)

    People have been saying this for a while - different coloured slime blocks that don't stick to each other would REVOLUTIONISE redstone!! Making honey and slime not stick to each other would be absolutely amazing for redstone

    if they didnt stick together it wouldnt make any sense

    Honey blocks need to be unique! Right now they are just yellow slime with some entity interactions, how exciting >.<

    This makes no intuitive sense whatsoever. Yes the machines are great, but it makes no sense. Instead, have it so we can apply a honey bottle (like dyeing a sign or placing an item frame) to a piece of glazed terracotta to make that side of the terracotta be sticky. This allows for all sorts of new and interesting contraptions and actually makes sense compared to two sticky blocks not sticking to each other.
