i just got an little idea. As we have new throwable weapon named trident, i got a new throwable weapon in mind. A lightning bolt, was Zeus throws. It could be more powerful, has yellow electric texture, a lightning bolt. Flies real quick and real far. Makes 6damage, but is much faster and flies much further than trident. When impact, then yellow electric particles happen. It's smaller and more compact than trident. I have no idea how to contain it in survival mode and it can have same enchants as trident. You can't use it as malee weapon
So it's a thrown weapon which just happens to look like a ⚡? Seems a little bit silly I'm not necessarily opposed, but I do have some questions...
Would the weapon return to the thrower, or be single use?
Would it turn pigs into pigmen, villagers into witches, creepers into charged creepers? Or does it merely do damage?
As for how it would be crafted, if a lightning bolt from the sky hits a mob, and that mob is nearby to a trident item, the trident item gets replaced with a ⚡ item. Or, if they are single use, non-reusable weapons, this would produce several ⚡, corresponding to how much durability the targeted trident had.
