Sky Bound-New Status Effect!
This status effect would allow the players to choose the duration(and thus height) of their jump. To balance it, it would have a low effect duration.
For example, if the effect was to last 5 seconds, it would mean that a player could spring upwards in the air for maximum of 5 seconds, making the jump extremely big. The player would control it by pressing space. This means that the player could start falling even though the effect is still active.
This could be useful for parkour, exploration of the cliffs, to launch themselves into the air with elytra, or just building.
To make the effect more interesting, the player could recieve it through new mobs, blocks, or specific game scenarios. The idea is to have that effect in ulimited amounts when close to the source, similar to the beacon.
The diffrence between this effect and Leaping is that Leaping modifies the jump in a specific way, and is reserved for the beacon and potion brewing. Leaping 2 allows to hop over 2 blocks, while Sky Bound would allow to hop over as many blocks as the player wants, as long as it lasts. Sky Bound allows for more creative and modified jumping, but would be harder to obtain, and in a diffrent manner. It wouldn't be part of the beacon or potions. I imagine both effects could be applied on the same player. This means the player would consistently jump 2 blocks, but could take it further if they wanted to.
