My idea was to be able to make the ender crystal. This block wouldn't have the exact effect as the ones found in the end. It wouldn't have the explosion when destroyed, to prevent greifing, wouldn't drop bedrock when destroyed like the current ender crystals, and it wouldn't heal the ender dragon, to prevent "greifers" spamming them in the end.
The crafting recipe would be somewhat similar to the beacon, but involve flint and steel, as the ender crystal has a flame effect, and a huge glowing orb.
:Flint and Steel:
( Steak being the nether star )
I haven't given this too much thought, and no practical uses have popped into my mind yet. so It'd be mainly for decorations, but if you have thought of any ideas, or would like to add your opinion or would like to see modifications to my idea, be sure to reply.
I'm sorry if this has been posted before, I tried checking but didn't find anything!
No, I wasn't suggesting the same effect as beacons - I was implying to add the ender crystal, only as a decoration block, Nothing else.
I know of the beacon, and I was stating I wasn't going to use it - as I have no need for it.
I was saying that It'd be good to use the ender crystal as a building material, and maybe for some people, a symbol of wealth.
Nah, don't support. It's too useless and besides, it's an entity that explodes yet is Placable. ???
I suppose, but I didn't say that it'd have the exact same properties. So it could be modified to not acting exactly like the current ones. Also, I didn't go into that much depth to think of any uses for it. But, if it's " Stupid ". So be it. Thanks for the feedback anyway
Almost no one would use these due to the fact that as soon as you place one, you would have either a permanent ender crystal or bedrock.
And definitely no one would waste a nether star or one of these when they could make a beacon.
