Can I ask if you can add NPC to the new update because I want to have a prison guard, policemen, and etc? I made a new prison map for me and my friends to play on but we always need more than 2 players to play just so its more fun. If you agree with this, make an item called "NPC Wand" to control NPC that can allow you to set up a job or a role to play as like a prison guard. If you want the NPC to talk by acting how the role works then can u, Mojang, setup the lines? For Example: <PrisonGuard> Its time for Breakfast, GET UP!
How to tame
Find gold and give the NPC the gold ingots to tame them. (at least 2 ingots)
right-click with the NPC wand to choose the job and role for them.
Mojang do not visit this forum, this forum is pa place for you to get some feedback on your ideas before posting it on Mojangs reddit or official feedback site.
Personally i see no reason for them to add NPCs to the game, especially ones that only have a role in such limited places, there are no prisons in the game, so to add prison staff they would need to add prisons, why would there be prisons? (just adding them for your map if not a reason to add them to the whole game)
