Quick Minecraft Update

It looks like the octopus got a friend; he's no longer the only animal in the ocean.
No, I didn't build that; I had to scour the ocean floor to find one that was generated naturally.
Adding the sponge back into Minecraft is something I've had a hankerin' to do for a while now -- just part of my quest to make everything attainable without cheats. I toyed with the idea of having sponge act as a coral reef, but then it just looked like barf on the sea floor. (So it is obviously the current decorative sponge; not the old, functional, water-banishing one.)
This is based on the really-real Caribbean Barrel Sponge, which is so large that a person can fit inside of it.

Hooray for sponges. Would you be able to change sponges so they would have a use--maybe as a potion ingredient? Making a potion of absorption or a potion of resistance... or a potion of nausea, I dunno. Reply

Hmm, that is actually a good use for them. (Although as rare as they are, maybe not the best of ideas?)
Unfortunately, recipes -- while they can work on the server only -- don't actually tell the client what was just made. That's how it works for crafting tables, at least: it says nothing, but if you click the blank spot, you get A Something. Maybe potions would be different? I never tried, actually. Reply

Yes, both those apparentlies were necessary. Reply
