Player Placed Sculk Shriekers are useless, heres potential some ideas
We all know the Sculk Shrieker is a terrifying block in the game. but once the player gets their hands on it, it's practically useless!! so here's some ideas of what i think it could do "and no it should not summon the warden, that'll be way to destructive in multiplayer servers and it's ment to stay in the Deep Dark only"
Idea 1 | give the player the darkness effect: self explanatory and it would be interesting to have a way to get this potion effect in survival without risking ur life due to the warden potentially spawning.
Idea 2 | allow it to scare specific mobs away: you could use it to keep mobs away from your base, by unleashing this horrifying scream of nightmares. some mobs obviously shouldn't be effected by this, say like the Wither, or Piglin Brutes, and especially the Warden.
Idea 3 | allow it to be activated with Redstone, or by other non player means: being able to remotely activate a Shrieker or have mobs activate it would be a great use for it, acting as a siren system for bases if mobs are near, similar to how it acts with players normally, or adding a fantastic ambience to a horror themed area. in doing this also having it activate from Sculk sensors that aren't activated by players would be a phenomenal add, [might be a bit biased on this one tho as i was trying to have Sculk Shriekers randomly scream in a build of mine only to find out they don't work like that and its impossible without player intervention]
