Creative mode is good for testing out any new game concepts or items quickly. After downloading pre 2 the first thing I did was start a new creative world, plonked down a jukebox and listened to all the new music, all without having to spend months searching for them in dungeons. I'd never actually play it long-term though.

Darn, thats what I was afraid of with Cindy's place. I mentioned it to her. She just sighed and figured she'll think of something.
What I'd do is put a single shaft of light from the surface down into the centre of the shrine. That way it would be dark when you enter, but as you approach the centre the darkness would magically dissipate and reveal how massive the cavern is. It would be an impressive effect, especially for anyone that hasn't been there before.
