Good mod :)
I think the armor would look even cooler if you made the body part be composed of both the shell and the regular chestplate

realistically a turtles shell would not be stronger than diamond but minecraft is not very realistic so cool!

Realistically, a turtle shell would be stronger than diamond armor because diamond armor would shatter if it was simply dropped on a kitchen floor. A turtle's shell is made of marrow-like materials, which is partly crystalline and is much stronger than diamond.

1.15.2 ?
Also can you let me use the texture for my mod ‘generated’
It’s about new structures and I want to add a turtle armor
I will credit you in the mod development and may do a shout out if I make a showcase

New Turtle Armor Update! Lots of tweaks and changes and now has support for 1.15.2. I will be trying to change the item IDs of the armor pieces in an update in the near future.

A quick hotfix update. Turtle armor effects now last for ten seconds after they are taken off, like the turtle shell.

There will be another hotfix coming out soon. Currently, though, my MCreator is crashing when I use MCreator with 1.15.2 mods. I will post the 1.14.4 hotfix and will post the 1.15.2 when my MCreator is fixed
