What combat System do you like better? - Multiple Choice
Normal hitboxes cover an approximately 1 block space around the player. Area hitboxes would add hitboxes for each limb.
and they would also only cover the player’s body. This feature would be perfect with the New combat changes (from the java edition combat test snapshot)
that some expect will come in 1.17 also, they would be different. If you Were hit in the head, it would make your vision Blurry.
or if you were hit in the leg, you would get slowness. If you were hit in the arm, your attacks wouldnt do much damage.
in the chest, they would just do more damage. These are Kinda like how the ender dragon has a separate hitboxes for Its head.
ive wanted this since i started playing Minecraft (approx. 1.5 years ago) and i hope it gets implemented soon.
