59- crafting recipe unlocking In 1.12 were added some tutorials on crafting recipes. These recipes aren't all unlocked when the player has the right materials: for example, the boat is unlocked when the player swim for the first time. So, when you update MCreator to Minecraft 1.12,can you make an option for customizing this?
60-banner custom mod elements If you can, please add a feature dor making that an item can be customized with banners (like shields). This can be useful for making custom banner beds, banner blocks, etc.

62-part brightness Please make a feature for making that a block is luminous... But not at all. For example, I want to make an ore that emits particle only from the ore, and not the stone... Like spider or enderman eyes... For making very cool ores that can be found easily on the darkness or coll night decorations!
63- more pulling textures
please add the option for guns for making more textures when it is shooting (like bows)
64 - block spawning
Please add a feature for specying which block will substituite the generated block (example: iron ores is generated instead of stone and this feature can be useful for sandy ores or gravel ores, like the Tinker's Construct mod)

Please add a feature for making common events in a thing like the vatiable editor. Common events can be activated by normal events.

In vanilla 1.9 was added a new damage system for weapona based on timing. Can you add a feature for making that when the sword is loading the super hit it has a different texture?
Can you make a feature for making custom dropper events for items and blocks? Like arrows, eggs, command blocks, etc.
69- bow-like guns (Jarglo33 True's idea)
An option for making guns being held like bows
70-no portal (Jarglo33 True's idea)
An option for making a dimension without making its portal. So you can enter in the dimension only with the "switch dimension for entity" event
71-improved switch dimension for entity event
Instead of the id you can choose a dimension like if you choose an item/block
An option for mob that they don't spawn if there aren't the right conditions, like if an achievement /advancement is reached, an item is crafted, etc. Useful for making a Terraria-like hardcore mode.
73-more bullet types (Jarglo33 True's idea)
An option for making if the bullet disappears like snowballs or is not affected by gravity, like fireballs. And also for choosing the range of the gun.
74-when mob hurts entity event (Jarglo33 True's idea)
An event that is triggered when a mob hurts an entity. This event will be used on the hurted entity. It can be useful for making mobs like wither, husk, etc.
An option for making a mob have inverted effects, like zombies, wither, enderdragon, etc.
Sometimes it's confusing making events that affect more than an entity, so it will be useful if when you are making an event for entities will be specified which entity will be targeted. Also, if multiple entity could be targeted, you can choose the target. (for example, in the event of the idea 74,for choosing if the mob that hurts the other mob will be affected, or the other mob. Useful for making vampires XD)
77-smart events tab
Sometimes for fixing a simple error you need to remake all the events, and it takes lots of time. An event tab like RPG Maker MV will make things easier. Edit, copy, paste, cut, select all commands and and undo/redo button will be useful.
78-when tool is broken (Tuki 812004's idea)
An event executed when the tool is broken. Useful for making pickaxes with multiple stages with different stages, like the Defense Block. Useful also for recrafting tools.
79-no plants in superflat worlds
For making plants don't spawn in flat worlds
80-custom world biomes
For making custom biomes appear in custom worlds (in the part that you select which biome spawn in the world there aren't mcreator biomes so you can't make worlds that have only your custom biome)
