What Happened to Fletching and Smithing Table Functionality?

1 242
The release of Minecraft 1.15 signifies the first major update to Minecraft without Fletching and Smithing table functionality which we were promised was coming soon after 1.14 release. So today, we develop ideas about what functionality these blocks could have based on current game mechanics and needs.

"Pickaxe Durability"
My version is
*Pickaxe Durability*
*Time remaining - ...*
and every single second is one use of the pickaxe
You can remove the pickaxe at any time
in my opinion there should be one more window with space for e.g. when you put iron pickaxe for *one* iron bar
when diamond - *1 diamond*

@Autismo Gamer In the future update, Mojang will add the alloys/gems that's stronger/weaker than netherite and using smithing table to upgrade tools and weapons.

No. Smithing is used to upgrade diamond tools into netherite tools.

Can't get any original ideas for the smithing table other than repairing?

*Netherite from the Nether update :* Allow me to introduce myself

It would rather be a good idea to have to use a smithing table for upgrading our diamond gears with the Netherite ingots instead of the crafting table. When the Nether update comes out, I will hope that the smithing and fletching tables will get their functionality...

On Bedrock it's easy to make effect arrows: just pour a potion into cauldron and then take the entire stack of arrows and right click them on the filled cauldron.
On Java it's much harder: First you need to at least arrive to the End with empty bottles, then right click dragon's magic that the dragon spreads by erupting it over the escape portal and also by shooting... end magicballs(?) to you. You'll get Bottles of Dragon Breath, which you then use to brew the "Lingering potions", which you then use literally on crafting table by putting 8 arrows around the potion... God, I wish the Bedrock way of making arrows soon got into Java, because that's just ridiculously pathetic...

Mojang is ran by a bunch of idiots. Ow wait, it’s ran by Micro$oft. No difference I suppose. Okay....wtf. A half used pick axe costs 3 diamonds to repair? What 3rd grade dropout came up with that horseshit? I’m glad I use Tinkers. Vanilla tools and their retarded repair system are a joke. So is the suggestion of taking 20 to 25 minutes to repair a tool. F**k....that!

My idea for the smithing table - ad a sharpening stone that has like 10 durability and every 10min that a sword is left in it there's a 30% chance for sharpness go up a lvl but it takes 50 durability away.

fletching table... make arrows.. obvious... but also make bows and crossbows... plus this means there is reason to add new bows and crossbows to the game.. note basic bows and arrows can still be made at normal crafting table....
smithing table... hmm well the villager does tools.. soo maybe new tools like hammers and spades such as we see in some mods... just one possibility..... plus smithy's usually worked armor and weapons too.. or other metal objects such as lanterns... just a few thoughts

Id prefer if the smithing table can just add more items, like emeralds or iron, to any sword and give it a different texture and some buffs. It doesn't even have to be just swords

Having the fletchers table create tipped arrows is an amazing idea. I would personally love to see archery, potions, and arrows all get fleshed out in a way.
For one, I would prefer to see the fletchers table tip arrows without having to use potions. For example, a poison arrow could crafted from a spiders eye and arrow in the fletchers table. This would also mean the cauldron tipping and crafting tipping would become obsolete.
I would also like to see a quiver as a tool to hold arrows and allow you to select the arrow you want for your bow. I don’t know how it would select or anything from a ui perspective, but I do know how frustrating I find it to carry around hundreds of arrows and trying to select the tipped type to fire.
As for bows, I want to see the middle left stick of their crafting recipe get replaced with a material like all the other tools. This way we could craft ourselves diamond bows (or gold bows for the nether update) as a way to increase our power outside of enchantments. And to distinguish the crossbow from the bow I would give the crossbow the ability to partially ignore armour and automatically have piecing on one target. Then give the piecing enchantment the ability to ignore a higher percent of armour. This would give the crossbow use as an anti armour weapon versus the more general bow which would be good at everything else.

i want to have an enchantment that reduces the draw time of bows (this means quick draw enchantmen can also be used in and increase of velocity (or just the distance or speed alone) of the arrow (this can be the power enchantment since the faster the arrow gets, more damage it deals)
doobs_402 - 9 måneder siden
Instead of interacting with the blocks maybe have them work as a modifier for Observers, dispensers, anvil etc. You place Smithing table next to anvil and bam, you can repair infinitely without experience cost going up. Put Fletcher table next to dispenser with arrows increases arrow damage, speed and arrow effects.

Maybe you can craft the upcoming target block with the fletching table!

If the smithing table worked like that then you could just get 2 unbreaking picks and alternate between them.
I think Mojang have put themselves in a corner with the smithing table, because there aren’t many ways to make it different.

My idea with the smithing table is the ability to tempered your tools/weapons. I'm imagining it would work like a beacon where you put the tempering material in with your tool and it could boost a selected aspect of that tool. On top of that maybe you'd get some color on the edge of your tool.
Categories I had in mind based somewhat on the combat snapshots:
I feel like the material to temper your tools should require that it's different from the base material, so diamond tools would need iron, gold or emerald. Iron tools can't use iron.
These stat boosts won't be insanely high and could easily be implemented in the game right now. Also only 1 stat would be boosted per tool, but can be changed using smithing table again.

Right now, fletching table is useful for target practice, the smithing table is good for counters. Mostly decorative. Regular arrows don't need A block, if you have infinite arrows enchanted.

The smithing table idea here is WAY too op. As for the fletching table, It has a bow, target, feather, and a knife. None of these help with potions. You could only use it to make normal arrows.

I would like to add to the smithing table idea. The table would require "fuel" in the form of the tool's material, and that "fuel" would tick down not overtime, but when the tool is repaired, aka overtime. Contradictory, I know. Now, the repair is slow, so what if there was a way to speed it up? I am thinking that dumping xp would do the trick. Or you could whack the thing like the Engie does in TF2. Though, I don't know how you would dump xp in there.

I think the smithing table should allow you to remove enchants BUT only the ones you choose to, and you can transfer them to a book/another tool of the same kind, using always 3 levels

For the smithing table, it will (very) slowly repair your currently equipped tool when within a certain distance of it.

If you could use flint and steel on an arrow and then it turns into a flame arrow, then you can use that instead of using the enchantment. However, when you make a flame arrow, the flint and steel will lose durability.

Imo it’s ridiculous to say xyz enchantment is “too expensive” - the game should let the player decide how much/many levels he wants to invest in an item.
Repairs are a different thing tho; i understand (somewhat) that one isn’t allowed to indefinitely repair one tool forever.

What about for the smithing table to be able to take enchantments off of tools and be able to put them into different tools or books for a slight so cost. Would add an extra layer to enchanting as well as allowing players to keep some enchantments on an iron shovel for example when the finally upgrade to diamond

I don't think the Fletching Table should be based on the Loom's interface. Instead, it should be based on the Cartography Table's interface. Two slots, one for arrows (where Paper currently goes for map expanding) and one for a Lingering Potion. The table should craft up to 16 arrows per potion, to make it slightly better than the crafting table recipe, or they should remove the crafting table recipe and keep it at 8 arrows per potion.
As to the Smithing Table, it looks like some sort of tool workbench. I imagine a similar functionality as a Stone Cutter, able to make tools using just a single resource and a stick.
VoidofNothing253 - 9 måneder siden
The smithing table would be used to craft tools and weapons, the toolsmith would use it to make the tools he sells. The tools on the block are to remove hot metals from a kiln or furnace and bash the metal into the correct shape.

Cubfan: What happened to the smithing and fetching table?
Mojang: *_That is an excellent question_*
I think resources should still be required for the Smithing table, just so it isn't completely free repair. So levels aren't required, but is replaced by time. The time that it takes to repair the tool depends on the type of resource it is. Maybe for diamond it repairs 750 durability and to completely repair it would take two diamonds and 30 (or something between 20 and 40, maybe depending on the enchantments of the item) ticks per durability. For things like iron, it would be about the same: half durability per ingot, but still taking 20 (or more depending on the enchantments) ticks per durability restored.

So to recap: each resource repairs roughly half the durability of the tool, diamond repairing about 750, iron repairing 120 or 125. Each durability will take 20 ticks, unless the item is enchanted, maybe +5 ticks per enchantment type, so on a diamond pickaxe with Efficiency, Unbreaking, and Fortune or Silk Touch, that would eqate to 3 enchantment types, so it would take 35 ticks per durability repaired.
No limits by level, just time and a resource or two to repair the item. The reason it shouldn't be free to repair is just because someone could put themselves in a box and leave the item on the smithing table while they go do something else outside of minecraft while waiting for the item to repair.

It might be better to charge time and materials for smithing. That way you can choose between spending time or enchantment levels. Free repairs may make that aspect of the game too easy.

For the fletching table, i would use 6 slots; 4 for the arrow parts (includes string/glue slot), 2 for potion components. You are creating unique arrows not just tying a glass potion bottle to a premade arrow.

Hmm... How about changing the Tool recipe where wooden tools can still be made via crafting table but in order to get the next tier, you need to upgrade them via smithing table?
Similar to those tool craft mods but without the complicated smeltery mumbo jumbo going on.
Fletching table could also be able to directly make tipped arrows, but that would require 2 more slots in addition to the input.

Smithing table to OP and you can easily craft, that is not reasonable.
How I would do it, is to have it slowly take Xp from you and transfer it to your tool of choice. There in no possible way in the game at this point to use Xp that you have already collected to your tool of choice without combining something with it
Edit: Mending not included because you can’t use Xp you already collected. Also I think it should take double Xp than normal mending because that would be too OP since it’s cheep to craft.

I can't say I'm a fan of the fletching table idea, but the smithing table is really cool! It could be the only block that REQUIRES a villager! Instead of a fuel, a villager has to work it. That could also mean that the player could speed up the process for emeralds.
Great idea cub! Hopefully mojang expands upon these ideas

I would be ok with the repair idea, but I think it should be able to be sped up with an input of materials... i.e. add UP TO 3 diamonds to speed up a diamond pickaxe... Etc

Alternate Smithing table idea:
So anvils are about building up your perfect item and repairing it. But what happens when you already have your perfect item? You need backups? Ah, of course!
The smithing table should allow you to copy enchantments from one item to another, using XP based on what the item's repair cost would be.

If that was the functionality for the smithing table, I would have Two separate Pickaxes and switch between them as each of them get low. I'd get to mine as much as I want at no cost as long as my pickaxe lasts a full Minecraft day or so.

Good idea for the fletching table, but my idea for the smithing table would be making tools with special properties, like heavy, speedy, even mixed-material! For example, a diamond-gold heavy pickaxe would have the speed of a gold pickaxe, a little bit less than diamond durability, and high knockback!

Ok but then you would have a Smithing Table farm, and Mending, repairing, etc. would be obsolete. You could just have several pickaxes and just leave them there. Either you need to stay in there, or better use the smithing table for other things (like raising the base Attack of tools)
Golden Reflection

Another strategy for the proposed Smithing table, is double the amount of tools you have, and every time your current ones get low (which will take a while with unbreaking) you swap them for the same ones in a table array, which means you have fully repaired tools ready to go instantly, and you have a secondary set for if you die and lose your items.

Free tool repair would tend to run counter to Minecraft design. It also seems odd that the block could repair the tool itself. So, I'd add that you'd need a Tool/Weapon Smith at the table to get this functionality working. Also, you'd need to add gold nuggets in appropriate portion to 'pay' for the repair. Also, you'd have to adjust the timing by material. A wood pickaxe should repair faster than a diamond one. Say: Wood = 10 durability per second, Stone = 5 durability per second, Iron/Gold = 1 durability per second, Diamond = 1 durability per 3 seconds. This would be the same across all tools/weapons. Bows and crossbows should be excluded and have to be repaired on the Fletching table in a similar way, you'd just use the slot you described for the 'item' in your demonstration and put the gold nuggets into the secondary slot for the artisan. This way the Minecraft 'cost for repair' would stay the same. Also, anvil enchanting costs need to come down for the levels. They are more for automated players to burn levels up with but someone playing survival with low automation has to spend DAYS grinding the levels just to enchant or repair things. You get severely punished if you play low automation survival style.

I 'm pretty sure they didn't add functionality to them because:
1. they were added only as a decoration block/a block necessary for villager jobs to work
2. 1.15 was a bug fix/optimization update, and 1.16 will be a nether update, but they have already released combat update test snapshots, so I think they are gonna use them in that update when they release that.

You can repair 2 items for free in your inventory, it also grants 10% extra durability. It's only when you wanna repair enchanted items you have to use an anvil. And not using xp then will be to op. Repairing a good enchanted pickaxe can cost like 10-20 lvls, removing that will be kinda broken lol

I like your idea for the smithing table - but I feel like the fact that if you unload the block causes the repair to stop and thus limiting how far away from it the player can go kind of breaks the concept if you need to stay in that area for 25 minutes potentially- this and it doesn't make sense that the smithing table just … works on it's own
we have villagers - perhaps when you leave a item in a smithing table for repair the smithy villager comes over and judges how much it would take to repair the item and puts a repaired version of that item for sale for emeralds for how much effort it took to repair?
