    you are right, it was late when i wrote it, sorry, no silk touch for iron ore needed of course.

    It uses netherite because the block allows you to point your compass at wherever the lodestone is. This is used in all dimensions, and maps don't work in the Nether or the End, so this allows you to find your way there. Iron would be too cheap.

    I totally agree on this crafting recipe idea. Not only would this make it cheaper to make but it would make more sense as well.

    I agree with the idea, but I think your recipe would be slightly too easy to create. Note that the lodestone is an alternative to coordinates, so it should be cheap enough to be easily accessible, but expensive enough to not be made in mass quantities. Adding in a diamond to your recipe would be perfect.

    I agree with the idea that iron should be included in the recipe especially since real lodestone is a magnetic type of iron ore.

    I like the idea of iron in the recipe. I was thinking that it would have iron on the corners of the recipe so it can still have iron and have the netherite. Just a suggestion to your idea.

    I don't think iron would fit. In my opinion, Minecraft doesn't need to be scientifically accurate since it never tried to be. I'd rather have the recipe that is used now, but with chiseled basalt blocks instead of stone bricks.
    This block will probably used the most for a nether home and leaving the Nether for one common overworld block sounds kinda boring. I think these nether blocks should be crafted only from nether items.

    I think an Iron block in the center as a substitute for the netherite would make a lot of sense

    The fact that netherite is required to make this block is for the challenge of obtaining it, not everything is going to be easy

    But why would I spend a whole netherite ingot on a lodestone, if I could just use a screenshot with coordinates, and add an extra damage to my sword. Using coordinates is alnost always easier than obtaining a netherite ingot, rendering the current lodestone as useless as a poisonous potato.

    I agree that it should require iron ore, but the crafting recipe should be shaped like Mojang’s existing one, replacing the netherite ingot with iron ore, and the chiseled stone bricks with either basalt or polished basalt, just to make it a bit more nether-ey.

    Or keep the lodestone's recipe and use a compass or empty map instead of the netherite ingot for the crafting recipe

    i agree. maybe they could add "magnetic iron" just like restone with iron or something, then use that instead of netherite
