For stone and Sand camo, replace the leaves with Smooth Stone and Sand, respectively.
Basically, the way I would see this working is as such:
When equipped, secondary camouflage bar appears, similar to the armor bar. The more camo you have equipped, the closer you can get to your target.
Moving around too much or standing right next to a light source is a good way to make your camo useless.
That also means if you attack with a sword, be relentless, because mobs will notice you when you strike them. Arrows are suggested.
Obviously, this is not an easy idea to implement. But I felt like I was sitting on a decent idea here, and wanted to share. Tell me what you think.
This is a good idea, but it may offer TOO much protection at night, for example: You may be chopping wood and you see a creeper wandering not too far off
So you stop straight away, and away he goes. Removes a little bit of the fun, but that's just my opinion.
Camo should only work to keep enemies from spotting you, and shouldn't remove you from an enemy's sight while they're actively tracking you. Holding Sneak allows you to be almost right next to an enemy, provided they haven't already seen you. The more you move, the better chance they have to see you, but sneaking while in camo would at least allow you to get within sword range before they spotted you.
Snow camo is a good idea, didnt think of it. I had it in my mind you'd have to be standing on the terrain of the camo you're wearing to get the effect, but I suppose you could blend camo types, each providing only minor protection from each biome. Also, I did state, but not too clearly I guess, that a mob WOULD continue to follow you if it spotted you. Sneaking, I suppose, would be a good way to get away from a mob.
See? Now there would be a new reason to download a Solid Snake skin!
i like the idea a lot the part that i really agree with is that it has to be made of cloth cause if you could make it with diamond it would be way over powered with have low armor but a bit of camo would be a good trade off
