    That sounds very Minecrafty, it's a great idea!

    Maybe with the stones, you could be able to put cobblestone in your crafting table and turn them into the item "rock," which will then be used as ammunition for slingshots.

     

    Also, regarding crafting recipes, maybe the slingshot could have the same recipe as a shield, but replace the wood with sticks and the iron with string.

    Crafted with three sticks and three leather.

    • Flint: Does damage

    • Snowball

    • Splash Potion

    • Egg

    • Ender Pearl

    • Fire Charge: Sets fire upon impact

    • Ink Sac: Blinds target's vision with a cloud of black particles

    • Slimeball: Slows the target's movement speed by a very low percentage

    • Wither Skeleton Skull: Explodes into a Wither effect lingering cloud

    Any of these items can be held in the off-hand while holding right-click with the Slingshot to launch the items as projectiles. Nether Fortresses' loot chests can have a very rare enchanted book called Wither Aspect which needs to be applied to the Slingshot in order for it to launch Wither Skulls. There could also be a Ghast-related enchantment that could allow Fire Charges launched by Slingshots to explode on impact.

    Slingshots could shoot seeds making the seeds more valuable rather than useless after a certain point.

    I've always liked the idea of a slingshot, just a simple, early projectile weapon with very low damage that just took a stick and some string, and you could break cobblestone or gravel into ammo for it, so it would be much easier to acquire than arrows. It would also have a bit shorter range and less accuracy, but presumably a faster draw speed.

    Yeah it could be crafted using four sticks in a Y shape and one string, and could be used to shoot small pebbles or something
