A simple suggestion to change the juggernaut chestplate from diamond to netherite to better distinguish people who have gotten a care package. The armor values are very close to eachother so I do not think it would impact gameplay.

I do agree with this, but a problem that could arise i that netherite reduces knockback. That could cause some gameplay problems like a medic jugg could just hold a line for hours unless someone can take out the medic, and an operator would make everything worse. Maybe instead of a netherite chestplate, enchant the chestplate with unbreaking or some other useless enchantment?

Netherite chestplate only gives a 10% kb resistance. I don't think that would make any drastic gameplay changes, and would only give jug a cool aesthetic mechanic for being a "tanky" kit.

If it does end up being a problem, just dye a leather chestplate black and code it to have the same resist as diamond, similar to how Frost armor works.

i think this is a good idea because its intuitive to new players
netherite chestplate ===== very tough and takes less knockback.
rather than having diamond and having to explain that the knockback received is reduced and stuff

I think jugg chestplate just shouldn't reduce knockback,

Jugg already receives reduced knockback, the numbers could just be tweaked to take the chestplate into account.



I think it's a better for visual clarity and makes the whole reduced knockback thing something players can easily intuit from a glance rather than have to be told about like Zelda said. Overall I think it's a good change as long as the knockback can stay relatively the same with some tweaking of the code.
