Vehicles! Or a flying creature we can ride, but riding creatures in general.

Farming

Weather

Mechanics: generators, electricity, industrialization in general

Signs

More terrain gen!

New blocks

More colors!

Gems

Robot companion to do stuff for you, like build a wall while you add details.

Ambient block: build while listening to the wind blow or birds chirp, or waves smash against a beach if that's what your building.

Quests in the dungeons

Adventure quests: like a quest for the crystal Moof, etc

War, this will be the hardest, but team multiplayer: with a seasonal scoreboard, red vs blue, castle decimation, capture the flag, hand to hand conflict, again this is the hardest I think, so no need to worry about this one if it can't happen.

More eden style music, but with the terrain gen, like scary horror for the volcanoe terrain gen, or space sifi for Mars, ect

This would be awsome :P

I really like the idea of the ambient block. Sounds can really change the feel of a place. Being able to customise the sounds in your world would be amazing.

You should be able to upload songs or sounds that you have on the iPod to that block. There should also be dragons:) They're my favourite kind of animal. Also oil (see my oil ideas and other people's ideas in the topic "oil")
Also pocket dimensions (like a mod in MC) and normal dimensions (He'll, Heaven, Atlantis, etc.) You should be able to post your own dimensions that you made and enter them through a dimension teleporter:p

Question to those with some programmer knowledge:
With the obvious issues encountered in this pending update, would it not be possible to strip the problem additions from this update and release one with at least something? I would think you could continue to work on the current/full update but send out one with less in it earlier?

The new blocks not including half blcks
New creatures, fireworks.

To me, the rendering distance is the best new proposes feature.
What would some of you chose for a top feature?

It seems to me that programming the half blocks is what's holding things up.  Not saying half blocks would'nt be amazing, but it seems like a feature that's more trouble than it's worth.

 

Obviously I can't speak for everyone, but i feel like the priority should be fixing problems that people have with the game before adding new big features.  The low rendering distance, various glitches involving transparent blocks (all of the blocks that have a texture from atlas2.png), problems with creatures falling though blocks, and very limiting height limit.

 

The new terrain gen feauture is nice, and seems to be working out from what I can tell on Riverbeta.  However I dont think it should be a priority because people who care about the terrain are already very good at making custom terrain (looking at you, Octogon, Gunni, Legend, BNM).  Terrain gen might make the game easier, but doesn't really add anything, and shouldn't be a priority.

 

Half blocks would be nice for adding detail to the game, but seems like a lot more trouble than it's worth.  The sloped blocks make up for not having half blocks, and in some ways work better than half blocks would anyways.  (Upside down slopes would be nice, but I have no idea if this would complicate things too much, and again shuoldn't be a priority.)

 

On the other hand, far rendering would make the game instantly look twice as good.  Light blocks would make indoor scenes look way more realistic.  Fixing the problems with transparent blocks would open up a lot of possibilities as well.  Fixing the problems with creatures would make them more reliable, and I'm sure more people would use them in their creations.  Adventure mode would add a lot of new ways to play the game.  People could even get the game and never build anything, and just play on other people's worlds.

 

These are just my opinions, and like I said, I obviously can't speak for everyone.

I agree. Even though the additional stuff is aesome, the most important things are the technical things, like bug fixes and higher height limit. (Imagine having height like Minecraft? 260 or so blocks high! Although, Minecraft has alot of workers and volunteers, Eden has Ari, Steve, and a few other guys, and they're all working their a$$es off.) I can't wait for the new terrain gen also! I hope they make forests in the next update.
:D

Cool for next next update when Ari improves survival mode

The only thing more i would like to see is: moving blocks, things one can pick up and throw, multiplayer

"Light blocks would make indoor scenes look way more realistic"

How would it make it look more realistic?
Edgest 17'4 is the most current update to the original Edgest

Edgest City 1'2 Is the most current update for the new Edgest

In the current version of eden a room has perfectly ambient lighting. This makes sense for very small rooms, but looks very odd when you make larger rooms. With a light source, you could decide how your room is lit, if you want it to be brighter at the bottom or top, if you want it to be evenly lit, or if you want it to be lit as all. You might want it to be a dark room.

edit: Also, indoors, everything stops casting shadows.

Also, things like lamps, lights and tv screens (which would all require the use of light blocks) would really improve interior design

I agree BrixXx. Taller Buildings. It would be insane if there was no limit in Height. Who wants to build the real Burj Khalifa? :)
