    I feel like copper needs more unity uses. Someone here stated that there should be copper pipes. I like that idea. It can be an alterative way to fill glass bottles/buckets or draining water from one pond to another.

    I know caldrons fill water bottles but they are also used for dying leather so they still have a good use. Think of all the cool well/building ideas that ideas that can come with copper pipers.

    The oxidation process is an absolutely awesome feature, and I can't wait to see more blocks that directly react with their environment. However my biggest criticism of the 1 single ore that added in C&C is that the ore has less purpose and reason to exist than Emerald ore (other than decoration), at the moment copper serves 1 purpose and that is to look good (Which granted it does, well done Jappa as usual).

    Here just are some random Ideas that I put precisely 12.65 seconds of thought into: (So don't take these literally, they are just some potential things you might do with copper in minecraft)

    What if you could insulate copper with other blocks, which would allow you to transfer redstone signals through multiple blocks (maybe maybe maybe at no cost of signal strength, but that might be seen as overpowered)

    What about copper rails that can be charged with lightning then picked up and placed down as a super boost, or maybe copper rails would take a redstone signal, and cap the speed of the minecart at that speed (so you could control how fast a minecart goes)

    What about copper mineCARTS, which would be faster at first, but oxidise and either break or require cleaning while getting slower the more it is used.

     

    Just a few random ideas of what copper could be, instead of simply existing, like it sort of does now... just simply exists... all existingly.

    There needs to be more uses for copper like copper wire that you would use carpet redstone and copper to make it. And it could give a redstone current. It would be another option in redstoneing. Another use could be armor and weapons and tools. Like make it be in between stone and iron on the tech tree and make it required to have a copper pick to mine iron not a stone pick for more sense of progression. There also could be special tipped arrows like copper arrows iron arrows and esc. Another idea would be copper pipes and implement plumbing. Like normal copper pipe for water and potion and dye mix and you could have heat resistant pipe for lava. Like you could be able to hook up pipe from lava to a special copper furnace that's able to take in lava from pipe and use it as dual indefinitely. It would have to be a post nether ability to make the pipe heat resistant with quarts. Which would also give quarts a better usage. Another use age for copper could be a computer. You could also have programmable hoppers with copper to make another type of sorting chests. There could also be a copper prode that you can hit animals with to move them but it doesn't deal any damage. There could also be a bomb/grenade that could be made with copper and gunpowder and iron shrapnel that's made from iron nuggets that doesn't destroy blocks. And you also make it so that the clock and compass could upgrade and become digital with copper. The spyglass and the bow combined could be a thing

    Wouldn’t it be better if oxidisation and weathering that occur on copper would have the same effect on other stone blocks or metal (iron). Eg. Weathered mossy cobblestone similar to the cracked stone bricks idea

    The amount of copper needed to make slab or stair is to high could we get a uncut version as well that uses ingots instead of full blocks.

    Copper should oxidize faster underwater, in ocean biomes and warmer biomes (except deserts). This would be helpful for any players who are trying to create copper buildings that look really old really fast.

    I think we need more new things since we have a lots of copper on the veins and the mines. Thinga that are capable on redstone engineers. Theres a lot of ideas on that.

    Copper just brings my mind to steampunk. All that bronze and brass!

    I think that it's time to retake a look at the powered minecart. There's a potential here to finally have steam in Minecraft vanilla. A steam boiler could be powered by coal, and have an internal capacity for water and steam. Player held buckets of water or dispensers containing buckets of water could be used to fill the internal tank, and if there's fuel in the slot then the water will be used up and the steam tank will fill up.

    Due to the pressure build-up, acceleration will not be immediately fast, but steadily increase. Even if no fuel remains, the steam will continue to provide power until it is itself depleted.

    I see the recipe being similar to that of a blast furnace, but using Copper instead of Iron, and Iron instead of Smooth Stone.

    We need some more things to build with copper. The blocks are cool, and I enjoy using them to decorate, but I have run out of options and have too much copper.

    If lightning causes creepers to be charged, why not let charged copper blocks ,from lightning strikes using a lightning rod, charge creepers?

    Here are my ideas on what copper should do.

    1. Copper should charge copper blocks using lighning rods. These charged copper blocks, when walked onto by mobs, electrocute them and deal 8 points of damage. But if walked on by creepers, they get charged. And if they are walked on by skeletons, they summon skeletons on horses with a different color.

    2. Copper armour and weapons.
    Now this armour would be made more powerful if dropped on charged copper blocks. But without electricity, they do not give the player any shock attack, nor give the player speed that is limited. Also, charged copper tipped arrows, swords and possibly a new weapon, a hammer, could deliver a new shockwave attack.

    3. Batteries.
    Yes, Batteries. What if you just wnat to store electricity into batteries from lightning strikes? You could use these batteries to charge your armour, either through a battery powered armour machine or just by upgrading the armour onto a smithing table using a battery.

    Batteries could also be used to craft new blocks, like radio transmitters with use of sculk sensors, teleportation paltforms using eyes of ender, batteries, redstone and certain blocks to craft teleportation platforms.

    At the moment, copper doesn't have much of a use in Minecraft. Spyglasses and lightning rods, while cool, are pretty nonessential, to say nothing of decorative copper blocks. So far, I've actually avoided mining copper for the most part, because it just takes up inventory space - Which is really disappointing.

    I kind of see parallels between it and gold, and not just because the two are both soft, conductive metals - Gold didn't used to have much of a role in a standard playthrough either, aside from decoration and better enchantments. But after 1.16, gold became extremely useful, being necessary to interact with Piglins in the Nether and to craft Netherite.

    Adding a copper tool tier would be a hassle. It would mean tons of re-balancing, re-ordering the sequence of the game for the longer, and for little gameplay value in return. But without some kind of special use, copper risks becoming an inventory freeloader. The Drowned could help copper the way Piglins helped gold. I think that associating the two was a good idea, and that the devs should run with it! For instance, tridents already have the appearance of oxidized copper. Copper be part of a new trident crafting recipe. Maybe copper could be traded with fisherman villagers, or copper tools, if they're added, could be faster in water (like having aqua affinity)!

    我們需要更多銅質的合成配方,單獨作為一個建築方塊收集困難,外型也不夠美觀,除了望遠鏡與避雷針之外,銅塊幾乎沒有什麼作用,要用於建築上也有更好的選擇。

    no se podría hacer que el bloque de hierro también se oxide, pero solo cuando esta en el agua

    Fix The Copper Block Crafting Recipe. You shouldn't need to Get Nine Stacks of Copper just to Make one Stack of Copper Blocks, it's Literally just a Decoration Block, Just Reduce it to Four ingots per Block

    Adding a recipe for a candle stick holder or chandelier from copper would be epic.

    Please PLEASE make it that copper can be used for making rails instead of iron.

    I think we can all agree that copper is common and useless, so please make copper rails

     I think copper should be used to make rails instead of iron because copper is pretty much useless.

    People like ores because they unlock possibilities. And people need ores because they get depleted after a while and/or are needed in large quantities.

    Now, copper is an underwhelming ore because it really doesn't unlock anything great, and it doesn't deplete at all. Unless you really, really want an orange build that gets progressively green, mining it means just more clogging in an inventory that gets smaller by the day.

    A new tool/weapon tier is not the solution (there's already too many that don't matter), but copper still need a reason to be mined in large quantities, so aside from decoration the only thing that makes sense is contraptions, because they're usually quite big. It could substitute stone for basic recipes, gold and iron for the less basic ones, where it makes sense. Also because stone, iron and gold really seem like placeholders for some of them, like the compass (who would enclose a magnetized needle in iron?), the powered railroad (gold is too soft for rails), or comparators (it would be stupid to carve stone when you just need an encasing).

    This would also help distinguishing ores by use: iron for strong stuff, copper for technical stuff, gold for weird stuff. This way people could just mine the ores they need based on what they want to do next, instead of all of them because all of them are used everywhere.

    I think copper needs to be less common. It’s super common and I tend to ignore it now. It also just feels kinda useless if you’re not a builder… It definitely needs more uses

    a full set of copper deco blocks would be nice, fences, doors, buttons, pressure plates, copper bars. you could also add copper as an alternative to iron in redstone component crafting recipes.
