    A few problems I have with this:

    1. Don't expect to find food there; you should never eat glass. It will kill you.
    2. Leather is already a color-able armor.
    3. For skin designs, there is already alpha-layer compatibility for the outer skin layer, so this "glass effect" can already be done. (although not all websites with MC skin editors have this function, so it may take more effort)
    4. "Terran lenses" just sounds like a new type of X-ray cheat for multiplayer servers to worry about.

    However, glass armor which will not give away your position (as much) when using invisibility could be neat. Just be careful not to drop your glass boots on your way downstairs. ☺

    It would be interesting if Illusioners had a place here; maybe they could spawn around certain structures, similar to pillager outposts.

    Something I'm worried about: In a world made completely out of glass, anything you build on it which isn't glass will look strange. If there are enough different colors of glass everywhere, the "mist effect" will make it appear more solid, but this also causes more lag.

    Response to empty fire:

    1 You can eat the crabs.

    2 Have you ever seen anyone wearing leather armor to a fight? Glass armor is able to be used in actual combat.

    3 While you can obtain special partly-transparent skins, your armor goes over these. Glass armor would allow you to show off your skin while fully geared up.

    4 My idea for Terran Lenses is for them to render blocks seen through them transparent out to a distance of 8 (or so) meters. This allows you to see all of the blocks within this distance, so yes, it does function as an x-ray, but a very limited one. Given it's difficulty to obtain, I don't think multiplayer servers will have to "worry about" it.


    Thanks for taking the time to read!

    There could be mobs made of glass with their insides being shown, but they are made of crystals

    I mean I kind of agree to this idea, but for 1 make it for more then just oculus, 2 dont make the whole world glass but maybe add the glass blocks to like some villages and generated houses, I mean if there where glass blocks like stairs, slabs, and few other blocks and have a bunch of colors for them, I think lots of builders could build a lot more structures and building using them.
