Villager AI

Earlier today it was announced on Jebs twitter feed that “Yes I’m working with the villagers right now!”. Since Jebs twitter feeds are posted direct to Reditt, we thought it would be a good idea for an article to post the conversation that developed because of this tweet.

The most upvoted comment was “I’m thinking it would be an improvement if they walked single-file into the town well and drowned themselves instead of wandering around for a bit first and then drowning themselves… “ to which someone responded, “Have one villager live (who causes mass genocide but you kill him) your goal is to become their new leader so they give you resources once a day “

The general theme of the conversation was that players are eager for the addition of Village AI. They want to be able to interact with the villagers and help them build their villages. Someone one wants to be able to put the villagers to work and create their own sweat shop. This could be an interesting mechanic, and it would allow Minecraft to teach kids about worker mistreatment across the world.

In light of this discussion about the new things that the Villager AI could do, what would you like to see happen?

So, what do you think?
