    Wooden/stone tools are pretty much useless, and new players race to get rid of them in favor of iron and diamond.

    Changes so far:
    • Wood sword applies slowness
    • Wood axe instantly breaks crafting tables
    • Wood shovel digs saplings from grass
    • Wood hoe tills seeds from grass (old school!)
    • Wood pickaxe gets extra cobblestone from stone

    Is this a 100% effectiveness chance or a lower percentage?

    These are excellent incentives to use wooden tools - what about stone?

    For stone
    Sword - weakness
    Axe - breaks wood blocks faster
    Shovel - chance of dropping coarse dirt
    Hoe - chance for extra sugar cane?
    Pickaxe - breaks redstone instantly?

    just suggestions

    Maybe weakness for swords, but the rest really aren’t improvements for new players. That and I can’t speed up breaking specific blocks, only fake an instant break.

    My original thought was “sharpen” stone tools with stone, increasing efficiency/sharpness at the cost of durability. Ultimately it felt clunky :(

    Awesome, yes, finally, wooden tools don't have to be kindling.
