    Acredito que seja uma otima adição porém poderia adicionar vantagens como speed e ate mesmo haste semelhante ao que o tinkers faz pois é muito dificil conseguir tais trims e so ser algo visual é broxante

    Been trying out the new feature for around 30 mins after updating current world. The following are the answers to the questions. I found 1 template only, and the challenge to get a template I believe is okay. However, I don't find it specifically rewarding or needy to accquire the templates. If I'm on a multiplayer server then the incentive might be slightly larger but currently I'm playing singleplayer and I don't find decoration to armor any appealing nor rewarding to me.  During my quest to get a template, I don't find it specifically adventurous as it was always the same old Minecraft adventure, and to be honest I feel quite bored and pointless to get something purely decorative. No matter what material the templates require, having to get something purely decorative in the first was quite pointless, especially in singleplayer. I do believe some use can be added to each template and their respective materials, so that the incentive is much larger and the adventure can be more rewarding. For example, the sentry trim can give a limited time of resistance effect to the player, with the level of resistance depending on the material being used to make the trim; the spire armor trim put on the helmet can be used to prevent endermen aggressiveness when looking in their eyes, with the chance of prevention increasing as the material used differ. Giving armor trims uses can greatly increase the incentive of getting one and make the game more interesting and creative.

    If you ask me, copying smithing templates is way too expensive, especially since armor trims are purely cosmetic. It should be done with something cheaper like gold in place of diamonds.

    Please let us use echo shards as well! Its such a pretty color and that would give it another use... Maybe instead of the lapis? Which we can use for enchanting, dye and trading already. 

    Echo shards don't have mich use for Hardcore mode players and once you have one or two compasses anyway, you don't use any more shards!

    I won't have the chance to check this out for a while longer, but I think it would be neat to be able to apply this to Elytra. Maybe the trims could give unique patterns to elytra, so they can be customized without the need of a cape!

    I have an idea to allow for even more customization : being able to use dyes to add armor trims as well. how would this work? by using dyes to dye quartz! this is even something we do in real life. this would work through surrounding a single piece of quartz with your dye of choice and getting dyed quartz as a result. then using it on your armor to make a trim as normal. allowing people to use colors like orange, pink, teal, and green to customize their armor more!

    7 diamond for the armour trims feels a little excessive. For the Netherite upgrade you could argue about it being tied to in game progression, but for cosmetics that feels a little unfair comparatively.

    The comparison I would like to make is that it costs 8 diamonds to make a diamond chest piece, but would also cost 7 diamonds to add some gold details to some boots (4 diamonds) if you want to copy the pattern first for a total of 11 diamonds. That personally feels too much for what is only a small detail a player has chosen for personalisation.

    Adding options for Elytra as well would be a positive too.

    Not much feedback to give as of now, but it would be neat if trims could be applied to horse armor and even elytra.

    Hmmm...
    It's an interesting change for sure, but it seems too... Modded.
    I think it doesn't go the simplistic essence of Minecraft armor we had before...
    Not in its crurent form anyways, if added in a différent way maybe.
    The recipes item is the problem in my opinion.

    I would suggest to add echo shards as a way to add a sculk colour on the armor. It would be great to explore ancient cities for echo shards too.

    I think it would be nice if Gold trimmed armor pacifies Piglins.

    I really like the new feature, here are some ideas I had when experimenting with it:

    -as it is not that easy to get a fully customized armor, maybe give the armor some type of effect and dont make it only a visual difference

    -copper oxidizes in armors

    -Piglins dont attack players with full gold customized armors

    -horse armor and elytras should be customizable (maybe even Swords, tridents and tools)

    -echo shards could get a new use as a dark/turquoise dye 

    -give woodland mansion patterns a 100% spawnchance in one chest in the mansion as the structure is really rare and it could be frustrating to travel 10000 blocks just to find no pattern

     

    I think its great that its harder now to get full netherite, I also really enjoy that you have to journey through the whole minecraft world to get all of the patterns.

    Would be good if developers will add some template for Wandering Trader, so he can be more useful now?

    Can there also be an option to do this with shields? As well as different material tiers of shields go up to netherite?

    Echo shards should be able to be used as a material for the trimmings! Would give a cool and unique look! As well as give them a new use

    The trimmings could maybe be a little more varied. Having more radical changes could make the options more engaging, as now they seem a little too samey.

    Great addition! I love the designs, and I have some ideas to make them more unique.
    1) I would LOVE to have the new designs be able to glow! Can be simple like putting the armor in a crafting table with the glow squid ink. It would make noticing players in dark spaces much easier, and of course it will look awesome.
    2) I would also love to give another use to the echo shard. Mixing the armor with the echo shard in a crafting table could make the designs be animated. One idea I have (which may be tricky to implement) would be to have the design only show when the player is moving. So when the player is still, the armor would look normal. This would add a great use for the echo shards, and agin it will look awesome.

    Let me know what you think!

    Maybe don’t make it so you have to find the netherite ones it’s already hard to get netherite now it’s even harder

    In my opinion, the armour trims are a cool aspect to show off your armour design to friends and can also add that element of story telling. Something else I would love to see is further customization with specific pieces of armour with things you can find excluding the templates. 

    Examples Combining any helmet with goat horns or bones can give that fantasy viking helmet feel, or even adding wool or fur on to a helmet allowing players to feel like a legion warrior. Another can be vines being  implemented to the entire set, to give players further style. The list can go on and on, even implying similar culturally customization such as helmets I stated earlier. I would definitely love to see further customization in the future in terms of armours, bows and swords!

    Tested out the features today, and they seem to work well! Some thoughts I have

    1) I personally thing the price to copy templates is too expensive. Maybe have the outer columns be the material and the inner column be two diamonds with the template in the middle.

    2) It would be cool to be able to customize Elytra and Leather armor with the Smithing Templates, maybe having the colors for them require dyes instead of minerals

    3) If this feature goes well, it would be cool to see a similar feature with the fletching table, using Fletching Templates to make different types of arrows

    Adding a similar feature to tools would be appreciated and would help complete the asetic, also the ability to add trims to horse armour, and maybe even elytra would be very appreciated, this is a very cool idea and I hope it gets expanded in the future when we get more materials

    While most of the designs look great, I feel that the rib template is lacking. Using diamonds to copy the smithing templates is a great mechanic, although 7 feels like too much. It also feels kind of weird that so many of the templates require cobblestone to copy them, I feel like there are more unique blocks that could be used instead. 

    I really like that you have to go out into the world to find the templates, and they give old and forgotten structures a breath of fresh air that they desperately needed. I think that the rest of game's structures could benefit from having a unique smithing template, especially the dungeon and igloo. For some of the game's rarer structures, perhaps the template should be a guaranteed find in one of the chests - especially the woodland mansion. 

    It would be really cool if we could apply these designs to horse armour and especially elytra, as players without capes have no way of customizing their elytras.

    Copying the templates should not be done with diamonds. You should either change the crafting recipes for duplicating them to something more fitting and less expensive; OR  you could potentially make them re-usable like banner patterns. Also, the below comments regarding trimming on Elytras/Horse armor sounds like a great idea.

    It would be great if having the entire Netherite Armor Set with a Golden Armor Trim could prevent the piglins from getting angry
    I know that all the trims are only visual but making an exception I think that the netherite templete + diamond requirements + gold ingots cost worth it
    In addition, the new requirements to upgrade to netherite would bring as a benefit that feature that many of us have wanted for a long time. Honestly I got too excited looking at today's snapshot thinking something like this had already been included
    please make it happen

    I think smithing templates should just be non-consumable. The copying system is tedious and expensive, and it's not very clear how it works without using the crafting guide. Although I think the netherite upgrade template specifically does work as a consumable. Otherwise, fantastic additions!

    I personally think that golden trim should count as something that pacifies piglins. I know trims are supposed to be only cosmetic, but that would be rather convenient.
