Hi. For those players who play full-Nether-survival (starting from punching fungus tree) it is important to have shield crafting recepie involving only-Nether available ingredients. We have wood, but we don`t have iron in Nether. Instead we have gold.
I suggest to add new crafting recepie for Shields, same as old one, but iron replaced by gold. Yes, gold is soft metal. So those "Nether" shields should have half less durability then those from Overworld.
It is important to have shield to fight Hoglins or Piglins. Especially, if only wooden sword is available (if you play nether-survival, you will use wooden sword until you find Basal Deltas biom).
P.S. Nether shields can have rounded shape for cool look
I don't oppose this idea, I don't see any issues with it. But I do want to point out you can get Iron by bartering with Piglins, so it isn't impossible (or all that difficult really) to get a normal shield only in the Nether.
