Since bats aren't used for much at the moment, and there is no good food source easily attainable in caves, updating bats would be the perfect solution, and 1.17 would be the perfect update! In my idea, bats would breed if fed glow berries, be put on leads, and follow players who hold glow berries. Bats would spawn in all cave biomes (other than the deep dark?). Bats would drop raw bat, which you can cook for 5 food points, sometimes bat hide, similar to rabbits, which you could craft into bundles also using string similar to how you can craft them with rabbit hide and string. You could also craft bat stew with a bowl, cooked bat, glow berries, and two mushrooms. Once in a while they would drop bat wings, which can be crafted into a special new item or brewed into a new potion. One last thing you could do to improve bats would be to improve its AI so it doesn't fly into lava constantly. I love this game so much, and I appreciate all the time and hard work the developers put into it. I want to help and do my part to make this next update as good as possible before it releases! Thank you!
