Can't you read? I said I only play PC Minecraft
Basically, this is how you could craft Chain Armor in Vanilla Minecraft without needing to get fire with the give command. You could craft an item that is essential to the Chain Armor: A chain link. One chain link is crafted through placing one Iron Ingot into a crafting table or your inventory quick-craft (which would explain the Armor set having the same durability as normal Iron Armor). Once you have enough chain links, you would place them in the same shape as a normal Armor Item. However, you would take more damage than Gold Armor would, but less than Iron Armor (since there are a large amount of gaps in the armor). So, what do you think?

Gold is worse than Iron. Chainmail takes more damage than gold, yet it takes less damage than iron. So, it takes less damage than iron, but it takes more damage than gold... which is worse than iron. It is both better and worse than iron? What?

Did something happen to you in your childhood to give you this unreasonable fear of rutabaga?
So, what you're saying is we should use our iron to make an item worse than iron but at the same price?
I see NO ONE who would do that unless they have stacks and stacks of spare iron.

Actually, I could expand on this idea.
Well, really, it's more of a whole new idea.
How about you make it so you're slower when you're wearing normal armor, but then add a chain variation of each tier that would be crafted by said tier's chain link (two of which would be crafted by two of said tier's material; shapeless) and would not slow you down?
Okay, it's confusing, but: The chain variation of an armor set wouldn't slow you down, but would require more materials to make (using the concept of 2 input = 2 output; it requires twice as much and yields twice as much).
So here is what I have either pieced together or completely my own.
I had a similar idea, yet didn't make a thread on it because of how over used the idea maybe, yet here is a thread with similar ideas that I can place my own combined with what I have read.
First the Chain Armor. You can still make it using Iron Ingots which in turn, one Iron Ingot gives you three Iron Chains. You can then make chain armor the normal way by placing the Iron Chains in the squares to make chest, leggings, shoes and helmet armor. This way you can have better leather armor but it will break faster then Iron armor as I believe it already does.
Moving on to the tier idea. You make your regular armor out of Leather, Iron, or Gold. Diamond isn't on the list because it's the max. By using the Anvil you can combine Chain Armor with Leather to make it give the same defense as Iron, and slightly more durability but it won't last as long as Iron. It would be like Leather armor with the durability of Chain Armor but the defense of Iron Armor. This pattern continues on with Gold and Iron. When you add Chain Armor to Iron Armor, the Armor gives the same defense as Diamond but lasts only slightly longer then Iron Armor normally would. I've never used Gold Armor and all I know is it's durability goes down quickly but I can't give any real input on it.
