    I'd like to propose that lava buckets be worked on so that they can not be poured but can stll be used as a furnace power source. I honestly do not know whta it would take to accomplish this task but I think it that it would be a useful addition. It might reduce the price of coal, which in turn could upset some people. Despite this I think that a Lava Bucket is reliable source of heat and can reduce carbon emmisions :D. I hope that there is some way this could be a reality. Thank You for you consideration

    Lava was removed for a good reason. Before this lava would be griefed and it would be everywhere you looked in a griefed town, Its a easyer way to destroy other people's items aswell, Lava will hopefully not be brought back and if your looking for a alternative to coal I suggest you use Blazerods as they're cheap at the moment due to xpfarms and its 6 rods per stack i believe. Your welcome ;)

    You misinterpret me, good man. I suggest we find a way to enable lava buckets to work in ovens but not in the way you explain above. In that way the bucket would act as it does now. As to the second part of your response, I presume that you mean that 6 blaze rods either costs one stack of coal or burns aslong as one stack of coal. Either way thanks :)

    People need to start reading what people write in their topics.

    His idea WILL NOT allow people to pour lava into the world, it will simply allow players to hold lava buckets in their inventory and use them for furnace fuel.

    I kinda disagree about this tho since lava isnt a source you can trade then it would lower the buying/selling of other furnace fuel products like coal and wood.

    Yes, I also saw that this was a fault in my idea. Lava is unlimited yet 3 iron are still needed for the bucket. My idea would slighty raise iron sales but lower coal prices. A lower price for coal might be good since the rudementary element could be purchased easily by less-fortunate newerplayers.
    I'm sure some type of agreement could be found to find a golden mean between the opposing ideas.

    I prefer Blaze Rods. Much easier to collect loads of, and easier to manage in terms of Bulk smelting.

    Well I geuss I could use blaze rods thougt I have very little of them. Are they really as good as a fuel source as people say? If so, I might make large purchases of them from people. I found a blaze spawner once but promptly lost it :p. I geuss I might look into this.

    Blaze rods use 6 rods per stack in comparions to coal that uses 8


    Making a blaze farm is a bit of work (especially if you want a 1 punch one) but it has been made alot easier with non pvp arrows turned off since it renders their ranged attack useless tho they can still attack in melee.

    And even so you only get like 1 rod per 3 blaze or so.

    I use rods myself only because i gather them when im getting exp but otherwise i would use coal and wood anyday.

    I'm pretty sure you can get buckets of lava now just for a power source if you try and place it it disappears
