Cauldrons are underused because they are almost useless outside of a few obscure redstone applications. To fix that, let’s give them a use.
- Add Milk Bottles. To obtain them, use a Milk Bucket on a Cauldron, then use an empty bottle on the milk-filled cauldron.
- Milk Buckets should no longer clear all status effects when consumed. Milk Bottles should do this instead.
- Cauldrons should be able to be filled with potions (currently possible in Bedrock Edition).
Potions are underused because they take up too much inventory space.
- Allow all variants of potions, including Water Bottles and Milk Bottles, to be stackable to four.
- Splash potions should be given a cooldown in order to prevent Instant Damage spamming in combat.
Soups are underused because they also take up too much inventory space.
- Allow all soups (Rabbit Stew, Mushroom Stew, Beetroot Soup, Suspicious Stew) to be stackable to four.
- To further encourage eating soups, add a nutrition system to Minecraft. A great such suggestion can be found here.
- The lack of a nourishment system in Minecraft also contributes to the underconsumption of soups. You can read an excellent such idea here.
Item stacking to 4 is a tough ask because it is unprecedented. Here’s why it makes sense in this case.
- It balances potions. One potion at a time is too little, but 16 would be too many.
- It makes sense mathematically. Most items stack to 64, which is 43, snowballs, eggs, and ender pearls stack to 16, which is 42, and anything with durability stacks to 1, which equals 40. Stacking to 4 would equal 41, which fits right in.
Thank you very much for reading my idea!
