    I think bats should be able to deliver items (Only at night) to a designated player. Once tamed bats should also be able to have a craft-able 2x2 sack to hold items!

    also when you tell them to sit, they fly up to the ceiling and do that curled up animation.

    Tamed bats can have a brighter fur color as-well for easy differentiation.

    nice suggestion! My idea for bats is that there would be a new variant that lives in the jungle. The Flying Fox, when killed they would drop BAT WING! India, lets go uindia! Africa!

    Bats should stay fairly passive and uninvolved, IMO, because they're supposed to be more "scenery creatures" than anything.

    However, my idea: Instead of taming bats, bats should offer a strictly passive benefit. My idea is that bats nearby enchanting tables actually make the enchanting tables give more information on the enchants offered, reducing uncertainty. This would encourage "spooky bat-filled library" builds!

    Another idea could be that bats react differently to certain mobs, allowing for complex detection systems, or tend to travel in the direction of mobspawners and other underground structures, sort of like dolphins.
