    totally agree, right now bat's are useless it would be cool to have them do something. Maybe they would swarm hostile mobs, or if you wack them they bit you?

    They could drop a substance so that you could make night vision

    There could be guano deposits from bats in caves which would be used to make fertilizer.

    I also agree that bats should get an update and maybe more of a use as would benefit perfectly from it during this update! A couple of ideas I added to was from this post!

    Please vote it higher for better bat AI and hopefully a new cave biome!

    some specific mechanics i've thought of are;

    bats hunt arthropods (siders, cave spiders, silverfish, and bees) helping the player out with surviving underground.  to protect your bees from bat attacks, place some berry vines/bushes near the hive to distract them. 

    bats hunt spiders for their eyes, which they eat, giving us a non player based method of gathering spider eyes. (if you manage to wrangle up one)

    bats pick and eat berries allowing for tall glowberry farms, and they pick up and eat apples, golden apples, melon slices, and glistening melons.
