Goat Horns & Helmet Upgrading
At the moment, Goat Horns have one use: making a horn sound.
Similarly, the Smithing Table essentially only has one use: upgrading Diamond Armor to Netherite Armor.
Let's feed two birds with one seed:
The idea would be able to place any helmet in the first slot, then the horn in the second slot, like so:
Ideally, a player could do this with any helmet. I would love for there to be different colored horns as well (such as a tan colored horn- making a Horned Netherite Helmet really Viking-esque).
As a further suggestion, allowing some sort of new combat functionality would be a terrific tie in to Jeb's planned Combat Update. Perhaps the little recharge sword that appears under a players crosshair would allow you to charge up a "headbutt" attack that functions similarly to a knockback + thorns enchantment. For players that use Axes or prefer not to have the Knockback Enchant, this could be very useful.
This idea would fit perfectly for:
- Builders will be able to add newer aesthetically pleasing helmets into their maps and builds (maybe using armor stands!)
- PVP'ers will have a new function to play around with that is not only unique, but useful as well
- Explorers now have a reason to find Goats other than for their meat/wool drops. Finding horns out in the wilderness will prove much more useful than if the horn just played a noise
Well that's everything! Feel free to ask questions!
