    Personally, I’d rather have auto-tracking than auto-hitting, but I love the idea of making mobile combat better by automating one of the too many things we need to control.  The reason I prefer auto-tracking is the knockback from getting hit by enemies is always what messes me up the worst.  When I’m most likely to die is when I get hit and can’t find the enemy because of how the knockback changes my POV, and so I keep getting hit and keep getting more and more disoriented.  I also prefer to control what I hit, which is also why I refuse to have thorns on my armor.

    Auto-tracking would only work if you aren’t doing anything to move your POV, so it won’t override you if you’re running away.  So with auto-tracking you have one thumb on the movement pad and one hovering, waiting for the opportunity to strike,

    Auto-attacking would be too powerful in my opinion. Combat mode would be cool though. An attack cool-down is needed, if implemented right.

    Autoswing is the only problem with this. There's literally a hack for it, so I don't thing Mojang is going to add it. Other than that, this needs way more votes! I was going to make these very points myself!

    I love the ideas! There should also be a toggle in the touch settings for all of these. Also you can swap your sneak and jump button, just wanted to point that out or my ocd will kick in xD

    the Automatic Combat Mode I did not think it was a good idea, but I also preferred that I had the new combat system

    I dont think autoswinging will be added to the game. It'll make the game way to easy and way to boring. Plus it wouldnt be a good idea as it would be a replica of the kill aura that many servers are trying to remove.

    And Plus we dont need the screen cluttered like a mobile Minecraft ripoff (those games that copy Minecraft but clutter the screen with Annoying UI) maybe with the perspective thing. You could make the crouch be one tap and perspective be two tap.

    They need to add cooldown on swords and bow mostly player use autoclicker aslo on console and w10 there is inbuilt autoclicker if player hold block placement key than it automatically place blocks so fast it should remove or slowdown

    And they need to make inventory swappable like
    123456789 slot if player left handed than if we swap 987654321 slot

    Touch Controls definitely needs improvement, but this is not how to do it.The Control system for touch shouldn't be forced but completely customizable. Personally, I would like touch to have separated right and left clicks, but they aren't buttons. There would be regions on the left and right side of the screen, invisible in gameplay, but adjustable in settings. This option of course would only be available when you had "Split Controls" on. More buttons should be optional, because Touch Controls just isn't as customizable as it should be. Like a Touch Controls Editor for Minecraft.

    I think you should use whatever item is in the off-hand by just touching the shift button, like you shift by double tapping if you're holding something and using the item by just clicking on the shift button
    For food you just hold the shift button for placing blocks or torches you just tap the shift button of course you have to stop moving to do that , and if you're not holding anything in your off-hand you can shift by just tapping the shift button and moving your finger while on screen into one of the directions like how it works in the toggle jump and shift option it works the same way because if this option is on you can jump while running by just moving your finger while on one of the directions to the shift button that is replaced by the jump button.

    I really like the idea of having an option to make the touch-control sneak button activated by a single tap rather than a double-tap. This would allow shields to be drawn quicker, making the combat across different control schemes more unified.

    As for the problem of the sneak button being in the middle of the movement buttons, there's already a toggle-able "Swap Jump and Sneak" in the settings.

    One of my biggest beefs is crafting, if I harvest a full inventory of sugar cane, making paper gives me carpal tunnel... 

    I do like the customizable HUD idea though, similar to PUBG mobile, add or remove the controls you want, move them around the screen where they are comfortable, make them as transparent as you want.  Tablet users could set up 4 finger ‘claw’ controls. Default could be a nice simple clean interface though, which would work better on small devices. That way users with different levels of gameplay, or different styles of play can make the interface meet their needs.

    I feel like we just need a hit/swing button, like an actual button on the screen
