Sneak has always been in minecraft, but the only reason we use it for is to hide from bullies with full diamond armor (I know bad memories ), but now we can implement another way to use sneak using a sneak set. (which you can hopefully use to get revenge on the bullies without flashy armor, just pure ninja skillz -_-)
This is a very simple thread so dont slander it as vague, its simply a simple-to-code, simple-to-understand suggestion.
A simple explanation of the sneak set is armor that goes in your armor slot but it offers no protection.
For each peice of sneak armor you have on, the opacity(tranparancy) of your gamertag decreases by 20% so when you have all 4 peices on your gamertag is 80% lighter making it nearlly impossible to see. Your running speed also increases 3% (so 12% max) for each peice of the sneak set you have on. Since you're the "ninja" in the situation you have a little bit of an advantage when it comes to running in and out of a situation.
When attaking with any weapon in your hand opacity increases by 70% for a quick second
Any peice of leather armor increases opacity by 20%
Any peice of iron armor increases opacity by 30%
Any peice of diamond armor increases opacity by 50%
While sneaking (the actual *shift* action), the opacity decreases by 90%( so this would replace the original darkening effect of sneaking)
And obviouslly their is no 120% opacity here. 100% is the most opacity 0% is the least opacity in the gamertag.
The head peice looks like a hoodie.
The chest peice looks like a black sleaveless armor peice with a zipper going through it.
The leg peice looks like a black pants.
The foot peices looks like brown running shoes.
This is more of a side suggestion simply because i dont know if the AI can do it but it would be cool if for every peice of the sneak set you have on enemies player detection range is lowered 2 blocks for an 8 block total reduction, but once the detect you their undetection range stays the same.
you craft it the same way you craft armor but with wool. You can the recolor the item with dye the same way you do with leather armor.
I think this suggestion is simple, but can add a whole mechanic to the game. think of all the new sneak based minigames, and all the possobilities.
if this update comes out perhaps more sneak based updates will come so it can eventually become a more comfortable part of minecraft.

While this is a nice idea, but the problem is to what you put: Hiding from Diamond armoured bullies. So that would mean hiding from players in a PvP match or in Factions. This may help to a minimum, but you may become vulnerable once you're targeted. Also, a solution to hiding your nametag is an Invisible Potion. Overall, it's a nice suggestion, but makes players vulnerable.
