SUBJECT: Music Discs & Scaffolding In Builds

Dear Jonny and Joel,

Following your previous discussion about music discs on the podcast, I thought that perhaps using a dropper on a jukebox could add a music disc, when the jukebox is empty, and a dispenser could kick any music disc out of the jukebox, and replace it. I think this would align with existing mechanics in the game.

Also, I have been building a cathedral in creative, (screenshots attached), and I have been experimenting with adding a permanent scaffold structure to the interior, to prevent having a hollow box. Would you consider adding a scaffolding structure as a permanent feature of your builds? Maybe not the scaffolding block, but something of your own design within Minecraft. 

Would love to hear your thoughts!

Hello Jonny, and Joel!

I am 11 years old and I live in Canada.  I just started listening to your podcast a couple months ago, and I am loving it! I was going back and listening to some of your earlier episodes, and started wondering how you get inspired, and how you don’t get burnt out making your really big long term projects like Joel’s medieval town Westhill, and Pixlriffs’ Ancient Ruins on Empires. It amazes me how you can stay inspired for that amount of time. In my friend’s realm we reset every two or three months because we can’t stay inspired, and everyone gradually stops playing. If you can give us some tips that would be great!

Hi Jonny and Joel,

With the new Trails & Tales update coming, it’s got me thinking about storytelling. I have never really been a builder, but inspiration struck while building a floating fort. I began wondering about he whys, and hows of my fort. Although unnecessary, storytelling is a core part of Minecraft, and one of the things that is more interesting to me. 

Have you ever struggled to come up with ideas or reasoning for builds? If not, how did ideas strike in the first place?

SUBJECT: Cherry Blossoms, Archeology & Story Telling

Hey there my new favorite podcast hosts! 

The  world is turning pink! With the evident emphasis on story telling in the the upcoming update, what do you guys think about Mojang adding cherries with the new cherry blossom biome and the ability to craft cherry pies as a well as apple, sweet berry and chorus fruit pies? My idea is that along with clay pots it would be so cool for Mojang to add clay plates to display foods on. (Like pies! etc.) Displaying soups, and suspicious stews would also be interesting. This would help with storytelling in multi player worlds, and allow for creativity with decorating, and bringing life to the homes we build. 

Let me know your thoughts and best regards!
