    How powerful are the weapons compared to current ones? How protective are the armor pieces compared to current ones? Are there any special features of steel armor and weapons? If you are proposing adding steel shields, then how would they be different from normal iron shields?

    The steel would be 9 armour rating, the sword would also be 6.5 attack damage, 10.5 damage/second (DPS). Durability would be 800, lifetime damage inflicted 6700. Steel would simply have a different look, as an xbox user and pc, it's a tricky one to answer. I wouldn't say there would anything special just a nice fresh look in the armour and weapons area.

    The capacity to make steel already exists in the game as steel is just iron with carbon in it. To make steel could require 8 iron ingots and a piece of charcoal or coal to produce 8 steel ingots. Make the dmg/def in between iron and diamond and viola! Steel equipment.

    I like the sound of that there are a few mods out there that add steel to java edition but you could also add copper and bronze to the game while at it and once those minerals are added it would open the door to so many other options

    the only other thing that would need to be added into the game is carbon and a blast furnace. it can have an interface like a furnace but have two "input" slots. one for iron one for carbon, and then as it is heated it would produce steel. stronger than iron, weaker than diamonds.

    I think there should be new ore like steel ore and ruby ore that can be smelted

    Here's my problem with steel. It is too cheap to be much more powerful than Iron weapons. It just requires coal and iron. Not a big deal to get. It would make iron armor worthless.

    Estoy de acuerdo, deberían agregar escudos "circulares", mazos de guerra, hachas de doble filo, lanzas, y para agregar más poderes podrían poner runas, con distintos colores y efectos, podrían usar la esmeralda para hacerlas y distintos materiales nuevos, es una idea bastante simple para el gran equipo de Minecraft

    More on this with the new blast furnace all they have to do is add carbon for us to get steel. Since coal is already in the game that can be used as carbon to mix with iron and make steel.

    With the blast furnace, you put in coal (As the carbon) and combine it with a few pieces of iron to melt together and create Steel. From there you just use steel as if you would iron to create advanced weaponry and tools. Yes, this would replace iron gear and if anything iron stuff should a little weaker if it is eventually added. Things such as "Flint and STEEL" could be updated to be made with steel instead of iron. I believe steel will have a little more armor points than iron armor right now but instead of being really tough it will just have a ton of durability. It will be primarily superior to iron only in the fact that its durability is much higher. I believe that steel should be the opposite of golden gear by having a ton of durability but just be as efficient as iron tools and weapons. That is what will balance Steel out while not just having it as a useless addition.

    Steel being added would likely build the path for other alloys and ores to be added to the game such as bronze made of copper and tin. This could be used in the education edition to make people more easily understand metals and alloys on the periodic table too.

    How about aluminum: only a bit better than gold, except that it gives a speed increase anything from 1% to 20% silver colored ore. Can be dyed/anodized to make it any color.
    Or lead, super common ore in some biomes, but weak like gold. Could also apply small speed decrease, and perhaps weak poison when eating wearing armor. Dark grey ore lighter than coal.
    Titanium, can only be found in certain biomes, about half way between iron and diamond in strength. Black ore, darker than coal.
    Gallium, this ore can be found in small quantities in many biomes, but after being smelted and crafted into blocks, it will melt in about half of the biomes. It can be stored as blocks or like water depending on biome and y height. Ore has water effects like sponge except silver drips. Always liquid in nether. Light Grey ore different pattern.
    Mercury, like gallium but always liquid, and if left in your inventory for several in-game days will begin applying poison effects. The duration is up to others for choice. Also you can't just throw it into a chest and then put it right back to cancel poison effects, they will only be canceled if you leave it out of your inventory for at least a day.
    Uranium could be added, with a faint pulsing glow and poison effects after so many seconds within a few blocks of it, and death to player after about a minute of direct exposure. You can wear lead armor to carry it without injury. It would power redstone and melt ice.
    All metal blocks should transmit redstone signal as long as they touch. Perhaps a stronger redstone signal could be added powerful enough to jump one block gaps of metal. It could also injure players as well.

    It’d be cool to have steel it should be crafted 8 iron and 1 coal/charcoal if added in my opinion

    Steel is the best stuff in the game could be nice and would make sense

    There needs to be bronze, silver, and flint tools and armour.

    Steel items could be made using a smithing table with iron items and a diamond, as steel = iron + carbon. Coal would be too easy, and it doesn't need to be realistic.

    Steel Armour and Weapons would and should only be smelted iron bars in the blast furnace and even then I think most of the steel armour should just be iron with extra durability and less characteristics.

    Main Idea you should add to this brandeno12345
    Steel should only be made in a blast furnace from smelting iron ingots into steel ingots aka refining it in a furnace that makes sense since blast furnaces are used for that IRL.

    Anyways It would be amazing if we could have Steel Just be a step between Iron and Diamond IF you choose but steel would be the same as iron in protection but the durability would be close to diamond like a inbetween durability to iron and diamond.
    On top of this it would be cool if Iron Ingots to be smelted to 1 Steel Ingot was 1 Coal block or a way for it to detect this and use more fuel besides longer cooking times. Just fun Ideas but this should be added regardless (The armour and tools for it at least)

    a more realistic way to implement steel tools and armors is that you put iron tool/armor and a coal in anvil and use exp to get the steel version which is between iron and diamond.

    In medieval times, armor and weapons were made out of steel, not iron. So it should be that iron and coal gets steel. Did you know that Notch was originally only planning to have leather and steel armor in Minecraft?

    It's durability should be between diamond and iron, it should do 6 damage, and it's armor points should be between iron and diamond

    Steel would be a good idea for a cave update, it would be rarer than iron, but more common than diamond. The damage

    would be between iron and diamond, and it could be used for other redstone machines, like auto-crafters, rapid fire dispensers, some kind of cable to be able to work with redstone underwater. Thats all i have to say abut steel.

    Steel plus these really cool but not overpowered ores and items from ores.

    There should be and opal ore that is found underground most likely in the desert or the badlands that you can trade with villagers or wandering traders for a good amount of emeralds. It could motivate players to go mining and to actually not kill wandering traders as often.

    There should also be a new ore called rubies that should be rarer than diamonds but not as rare as emeralds. Would have the same protection and damage as diamond but better durability and more enchantment options.

    There should also be a new ore in the end known as titanium, it is quick at mining as gold, and diamond level durability. It is also the same durability and protection for armor as diamond, for swords it is the same as a diamond sword, but with a 50% chance of doing 1 more damage.

    Actually, you might not need to add a new ore for this. Crafting iron and coal together would be too easy to make steel, so what if you had to melt both by smelting again, then craft with a water bucket to get steel? Steel should be diamond tier but mine more slowly and have less durability.
