Adding to the Additional Smithing Table use in 1.17 (Tin)
On my last post about the additional Smithing Table use in 1.17, I said that Bronze Tools would only be made out of Iron and Copper. I recently changed my mind and decided Tin should be put in the recipe. 2 Copper Ingots and 1 Tin Ingot would make 3 Bronze Ingots, which can be used to upgrade Iron Tools to bronze. However, only having tin be used for upgrading Iron tools would be redundant and would go against everything I have said about new ores. Today I will be talking about uses of Tin.
Tin Ore would be found in Mountain, Ocean, and River Biomes. The other way to obtain Tin would be excavation sites. Brushing through blocks may earn you a few tin ingots. To stop Tin from being so rare, Piglins should also barter the ingots. This idea was inspired from ArminageShikoba's tin post.
Tin Blocks and Cut Tin blocks would solve the problem of building with Iron Blocks, which is a desired building material but is often too expensive. Instead, you can just build with Tin!
Tin Bars would look like a trapdoor that cannot be opened. It looks like a grate.
Tin Pipes would offer a fix to expensive hopper chains, able to transfer items between hoppers but cannot collect items or deposit them in items like chests.
Keys would be made with a Tin Ingot and Iron Nugget. They would go in Bronze Locks that can be put on chests and doors. There should be a way to make keys unique to their lock.
Finally, destroying, stepping, or interacting with a tin block would give it +2 vibration redstone output.
