Crossbow Ammunition Load Order
Currently, all types of arrows and fireworks can be loaded into crossbows but fireworks must be explicitly held in the off-hand to be loaded. Given that the key for loading the crossbow and using the firework itself is the same and cannot be bound differently for each, this not only means that the player must be without another offhand item (Shield, melee weapon, another crossbow etc) but that the fireworks are sometimes used instead of the crossbow, wasting an expensive firework!
One solution is to create a load order for crossbows - a priority list that determines which ammo types are loaded before others, should they be present in the inventory.
This list could be fixed, or it could be an option in the settings menu, or even just an additional setting for us to tweak in an configuration file.
Another solution is to add a crossbow variant that explicitly fires firework rockets and not arrows. Whether such a variant should have different stats (firework damage, load time) is up for debate, but at the very least it would allow us firework-lovers to be as competitive as other players.
