      @N -R Mnecraft is adding armor modifications and you’re saying adding a few more weapon types is too much?

    • CODA
      CODA Month ago +1

      @pᴉʞxolqoɹpǝɹǝƃƃᴉɹt I didnt say it should be like RLCraft, in that modpack you have a constant resting pulse of 120. Im just saying MC could make use of more weapons. The game became much more like an adventure with recent updates, weapons should follow now. Only the standard sword is a bit boring.

      @CODA Creepers blowing up your house is no where as stressful and overwhelming as RLCraft. Vanilla Minecraft shouls not become anywhere near as complex as RLcraft, although I do think that Minecraft could benefit from some of the features in RLCraft.

    • CODA
      CODA Month ago +5

      @N -R Minecraft has made it clear with all the recent updates that its supposed to become more of an adventure game. The next logical step would be adding more variety in weapon choice. After you've gotten iron Armor, the game pretty much becomes boring.

      @Chilled Bacon that’s true and they work on other games in the process so it’s not all on one game. They have dungeons, earth, and now legends to focus on. I kinda forgot about that too lol

    • Chilled Bacon
      Chilled Bacon Month ago

      @WordedHalo they could probably do more without having to go through the corporate ladder for each idea or fix. theres a reason companies are way slower to make changes and whatnot, and its usually because it has to run through like 50 different people before being approved. it might be an easy thing to implement, but to get it authorized is a pain in the ass (from what i understand. im no game dev, but i understand a bit about what can go on behind the scenes). the nice thing about modders is that they dont have to go through the ladder shenanigans and can implement whatever since they have so much freedom

    • WordedHalo
      WordedHalo Month ago

      @Chilled Bacon that’s absolutely true but at the same time Minecraft is getting paid to do the work they do and a lot at that. And I don’t know about game design but compared to other games it doesn’t seem like the hardest work. I just feel like they could be doing more considering they’re like the most played game ever

  • Implywood
    Implywood Month ago +29

    Worth pointing out that the Rib trim (the one that Jordan points out doesn't "pop" as much as he thought diamond would) actually makes the trim darker! All other materials used will have a darker tone when used with this smithing template. Quartz works amazingly well with the Rib trim for a skeletal armour type look :)

  • Zicrus

    You actually can put a netherite trim on netherite armor, and it looks slightly different to regular netherite armor. You do it by applying the trim to a piece of diamond armor and then upgrading the diamond armor to netherite.

    lets not forget that you can mix and match armours with different patterns and colours which adds even more customizability

  • xxFalconArasxx

    Wow insane that Minecraft is still receiving fairly big updates this much later after it's release, one game that really never did any wrong by anyone, always been good.
    I may not play as much as I did when I was 12, if at all, but it's a cool game to go back to. Glad that every time I go back there is new stuff to explore

      only bad thing they did was the pvp update a while back, that really killed a chunk of the community when they did that.

      Think about Skyrim, 11th november 2011 release and still a big thing, especially in the modding community.
      But yeah Minecraft is also a interesting phenomenon with that. :D
      I'm playing it personally most of the time with mods as well since I consider Vanilla MC more of the boring things, especially when it comes to automations and big chunk clearing 😂
      I'd like to autofarm any resources (Diamonds are not real possible in vanilla yet, even tho they are pretty useless in vanilla terms beside getting your armor and tools, now they are needed at least for some armor decoration improvements which is good for me) and there are many mods to help you cleaning out big areas in nearly no time compared to doing it on your own beside a Haste2 Beacon for example ^^

  • Liam Tolentino
    Liam Tolentino 2 months ago +750

    I'm really hoping they apply this to tools as well because it would make it so much easier to tell between your silk touch pickaxe and your fortune pickaxe, and especially easier to find which tools are yours when your friend picks up your items when you die.

    • Imperfect Imp
      Imperfect Imp Month ago

      @SprayInk & CritGlitch I made 11 unique sword trims in a pixel art program to try it out. It's definitely doable on swords. Tools is a bit trickier I'll admit. Though on tools the color coding is more interesting than unique patterns. Maybe 1 specific tool pattern found in villages?

    • Imperfect Imp
      Imperfect Imp Month ago

      @Wivd Naming them still requires you to mouse over them, while color coding is visible at first glance. I color code my shulker boxes too, so why not make my fortune pick green, and silk touch blue?

    • Wivd

    While it is a little more expensive and rare to find these things it will be so much fun customizing armor and I'm glad mojang is starting to make diamonds have more use in the game, instead of just collecting dust in the chest

    • TheJjcczz
      TheJjcczz Month ago

      A little, try more than double. A full set of diamond armour and tools (excluding the hoe) is 33 diamonds. With this new update the cost of those same items in netherite is now 82 diamonds and that’s just standard netherite with no trim. They’ve made netherite stupid expensive for a feature that is purely cosmetic
      Netherite shouldn’t require a template it should work just like before and then the trim can be an optional addition. Because as it stands you’re going to spend 82 diamonds just getting full netherite gear, then you have to get the trim you want then duplicate it 4 times which is an additional 28 diamonds for a grand total of 110 diamonds
      Or you can try and find 8 netherite upgrades and 4 of whatever trim you want but that’s going to be complete RNG and take who knows how long. A fortune enchanted pick would be faster and more consistent

  • Fusion Wing
    Fusion Wing Month ago +2

    I think there should be an ability to "coat" armor as well, coating works like dyeing leather, in that you coat your armor in a different material like you can do here with trims to change its color (corresponding to the armors color, so netherite armor thats coated would appear darker than expected due to netherite being a darker material)

  • Kuro Ookami

    My first thought when I saw gold trim was, "Will the gold trim make it so Piglins won't attack you as if you wore gold armor?"

  • RealBenGame

    I think it would be nice if different armour trims and their materials would give bonus's to the armour set which would allow better incentive to hunt down these armour trims

    • TheJjcczz
      TheJjcczz Month ago

      That would be the bare minimum considering they just jacked up the price of full netherite armour from 24 diamonds to 45 for no reason. It’s literally going to cost 82 diamonds for full netherite armour and all 3 tools plus a sword. That doesn’t include the trim by the way which you would need to dupe 4 times for an additional 28 diamonds
      Or you could rely on RNG and just hope you get lucky and find the 8 netherite upgrades and 4 trims you need to avoid paying the duplication cost

    • Jackson Ballinger
      Jackson Ballinger Month ago

      I agree, it would be really nice if the trims had minor status effects that corresponded to their location. It would also be awesome if the smithing table could be used to bring weaker armor and tools closer to the standard of neatherite at an appropriate cost of course. There should also be an option to remove the shimmer from enchantments entirely because the armor sets look really clean without it. I hope they do a lot more with letting players choose what armor they want to wear because they’ve definitely just opened that door.

    It would be nice if you could have the option of the trim colour affecting the enchantment colour, though maybe i'm reaching too far with that. It seems like the purple could clash with some the look some people want.

  • Rengo7u7r
    Rengo7u7r 21 day ago

    I think you got confused with the materials that get applied to the armors. The different templates will define the pattern the armor will have, but then you can use any other mineral to apply the color. There are patterns which make diamond look really good.

    This is insane! I always felt like the netherite part is a bit boring from the point where you are full netherite. Also Elder Guardians are finally worth hunting down, it always felt like ocean monuments were just something to pass by since 8 gold blocks weren't worth the frustration of mining fatigue...

    • Preddy-O
      Preddy-O Month ago +3

      @Jedian you do realize that Minecraft is a sandbox game. Any content added, even if just cosmetic, is content. Sometimes they create nice new mechanics, other times their uses are niche and some times they don't have any technical use and are purely for looks.
      Minecraft is about creativity and innovation. You kinda create your own content. If by "actual content" you mean redstone stuff, well, we've had at least 1 game altering change per update. If you mean new biomes, why? It's quite a balanced amount and the only reason to add a new biome is for new building blocks, which you stated to not really like anyway. World generation has been revamped, villager trading still receives slight adjustments.
      So really, what is this "actual" content if it's not the above? New mobs? Those aren't really interesting unless you add new drops, and new drops leads to new building blocks and cosmetics.
      A new dimension? That's gonna take quite a bit of work, especially since The End needs a visual update(which is also basically cosmetic and only adds new building blocks), let alone that a new dimension would just add that, new blocks and cosmetics. Maaaaaybe a boss fight, but all bossfights in Minecraft can be cheesed.

    • Xalandriel
      Xalandriel Month ago

      @Jedian I can understand you, maybe you should try out some Modpacks then. There are some "Hardcore Survival" Modpacks where you need to manage for Thirst, Hunger (eating the same all the time is not possible), Temperatures, etc
      Also Mobs can be stronger, in hordes, better AI, etc
      Thanks to modded MC a big chunk of players are still playing this game I believe, including me.
      For me personally, I like the idea of customizing your armor (and hopefully Tools and Weapons too soon)
      But since I play mostly in singleplayer (I don't like playing on "official" servers, mostly the good stuff is simply banned for reasons) or with a few friends (which doesn't really like Modpacks) there's no direct sense for me in it, but it's still nice2have for me.

    this honestly feels like a mod, excited to experience this

    I was hoping to see these different templates actually have each of their own specific functions. For example the template you get from the elder guardian lets you do more damage while in water. Something simple that makes each of these templates not only aesthetically pleasing, but functional in their own ways.

    Perhaps you could modify the armour eventually. Into the Medium Armour (what we have) then like a Heavy and Light ones. Heavy gives more hearts perhaps and light gives a little bit more movespeed or something? Or it could just be cosmetic, that'd be neat too.

    7:16 You can apply netherite patterns to netherite armor if you apply the netherite trim pattern on the diamond armor before upgrading it. A lot of them have very subtle variations you wouldn't notice, but the vex pattern makes the netherite chestplate look like it just survived an explosion.

  • EmrysPaperArt
    EmrysPaperArt Month ago

    idk if it's been mentioned already but re the colour of diamond looking close to lapis: this is because you used it on the rib trim, and all the colours show up notably darker on that one. it's an interesting choice and kinda a shame that it's the only one - it would have been cool to see even just one that went lighter/brighter than the default colours

    I love that they're making armor customizable, but I honestly wish it had some functionality to it, so depending on what trim you used the armor would serve a different purpose or give different benefits

      @Financial Problems thats true, Maybe they could give all of them a durability buff for adding a trim and a collor. It wil all be the same so it gives good incentive but it would be fun to make it usseful

  • Tyler Pink
    Tyler Pink Month ago

    Would be sick if the different armor templates gave the players buffs for having an entire set, like the full wild armor set would give you a haste buff like what a beacon does, but passively, the tide gives you water breathing, etc. Just because there doesn't seem to be a purpose for all of this apart from being purely cosmetic; I think it'd make it a lot more fun to give me a reason to actually get different sets with different upgrade patterns.

  • RazorRED
    RazorRED 2 months ago +964

    One thing that will make the enchanted version of these armors wayy better is if the trims have their own glow or shine corresponding to the color it is whenever its enchanted !.. Almost like neon strips on your armor.. Might look VERY COOL !

      That might be hard to code, but probably not impossible. And as others have said, worst case if you want it to glow, could make the glow ink sac more useful by making the trim glow, so combining that with enchanting could have some really cool effects!

    I think the choice to make Netherite slightly more difficult to get was a good call. I felt as if it was a little too easy before.

  • Shairne Shadowfell

    idea that would make it actually worth is: each trim gives a unique upgrade to the armour piece like tide giving extra damage in water and snout giving extra knockback

  • reckingball71
    reckingball71 Month ago

    each type of the template if you have the full set of that specific template gives buffs too but instead of protection or bonus damage or anything like that some give extra hearts or a weak regeneration or if a mob hits you it might push everything away from you or even stuff like gives an extra level to certain enchantments like imagine unbreaking 4. i also feel like would be good to add to the smithing table is chestplate elytra but make it super expensive so it takes longer to achieve and get rid of the duping system so people are more prone to explore and its like a final upgrade to your armor and weapons. if they do this right it could be the biggest update in gear sinse netherite

  • Breezeless_
    Breezeless_ Month ago

    They basically added Philza‘s netherite armor and tools texture as a feature with more customizations, I love it and this also gives diamonds more uses since it had fallen off since netherites introduction

  • Brenden Lee
    Brenden Lee Month ago

    I feel like this could be a use for growth in the actual game, more armor options could open up options for buffs, certain armors being better than others, enchantments being better compatible with certain armors, set bonuses, a ton of interesting things. Then could grow the game from there, add more content, more enemies, places to go, things to do.

    Johann Van Tassel Month ago

    I've heard complaints about how netherite shouldn't cost so much more diamond, but I think it is a good choice because it lets the netherite upgrade feel like an actual upgrade. Normally people spend very little time in diamond gear and usually jump to netherite as soon as they can. After getting diamond gear, we now have a reason to keep mining diamonds.
