I've been checking out the new wings in the snapshots, but I don't really like the fact that the wings aren't really "wings". They're more like a glider that looks like wings. I want to change that.
#1: Vertical Climb
From what I've seen, it doesn't really look like you can do much vertical climbing. It would be nice if you could flap your wings a few times or something to get a boost into the air.
A very obvious and likely suggestion, but a much wanted one as well. Sometimes you may just want to get somewhere REALLY fast, or just really want to have fun with the wings. Having a little more of a push in the desired direction would be much appreciated.
#3: Instant Takeoff
As the name suggests, I don't like that you have to fall 4 blocks in order to spread your wings and fly away. I understand the reason behind it, but hey, this is a mod suggestion, not a patch suggestion.
#4: Tilt Control
I love flying in games, but I love it even more when you have full control over your flight. I want to be able to fly sideways, upside down, ect. I want to be able to preform crazy stunts, I want to be able to use the wings the way they're meant to be used.
#5: Controlled Descent
Last and final request, I want to be able to properly and accurately control how fast I descend. I don't want to die on accident because I flew at the ground too fast and couldn't control the speed.
