    I think gameplay is a bit more pressing, but there isnt anything wrong with just making these things *look* nicer. It's just a nice aesthetics change, not a particularly significant one, but one that I think most survival players would like nonetheless.

    I should have been more specific in this post. I talking about possibly a MINOR redesign.

    Agreed, I'd like a major redesign of the villages. Maybe with doors on what the structure generator considers "houses" and torches in what the village behavior considers "houses". The big L shaped house has a huge dark area that zombies can spawn in, and the ones with decent lighting have no doors. That being said, I wouldn't so much change the floor layout of these structures at all. More so the composition of the building and interior design. Because 1.13 has given us nice stripped logs, 1.6 had hay bales that could potentially be used as thatch (especially with the new texture), corner stairs have been a thing for the longest time, and ceramic bricks have existed even before villages were implemented. 

    As for nether fortresses, more use of stairs and red brick please. Maybe even some slabs for the roof so that mobs don't amass on top of the hallways. Same thing with the Woodland mansion, though outside of brick roofs not much needs to change. Same with the exterior of ocean monuments, because prismarine stairs were just implemented and aren't used for at least minimal detailing. Outside of that they're pretty decent.

    And I get that the one thing Jeb_ and Notch regretted making during early development was the slab and stair "pseudo blocks" but they are the best thing that could have happened for architecture. The one thing I despise them making is those ugly raw igneous stone blocks. More for the fact that seem to pepper the underground with mostly clashing colors. I honestly would have made them alternate pallets for the default stone.

    Yeah.I agree with him on this one.Especially when it comes to the dirt floor in the little village houses.Some structures need a MAJOR redesign though.That's mainly the village,Nether fortress,and strongholds.

    Dinorauria,are you talking about cobblestone when you say ugly raw igneous stone?

    I agree, but what is needed is not a redesign, it is variation. Like Mc Rat said, the structures need to have unexpected factors, and I would add: rare rooms and features that add a surprise factor even for experienced Minecrafters.

    Villages are being updated, but temples need updates too. Desert temples have more complex mazes and more hidden, dangerous traps (sure the TNT trap is deadly and destroys the loot but is easily disarmable). Jungle temples need to be bigger, have more difficult puzzles and arrows should be launched in barrages.

    Desert temples should be redesigned to look more like a pyramid. Even the inside could be redesigned. Have it so that you have to go through a "maze" of tunnels to find the treasure inside, which would be more exciting than having to dig a hole in a monument and hopefully not setting off any TNT that awaits.

    The villager redesign in MCPE Beta 1.11.4.0 is better - I like how the buildings look! And the new textures make it look even better as well.

    Everything else is okay...

    Yes, I believe that villages need to be bigger, like the old ones. All villages I've come across have like maybe 4 houses, and they're tiny. Old villages usually had more than 8 houses, and their functions were clear. Now it's jumbled and just really silly. If you want to add more designs to villages, don't get rid of the existing designs. They were really good and instantly recognizable. Just add the new designs onto the old ones, therefore expanding the village and solving both of my issues with the new 19w11b villages.

    Just saying to everybody here, I don't wanna see a paragraph every time I see a comment, I just want a simple and short explanation of everything you have to say and not a whole paragraph of all you feel like saying, some things aren't meant to be seen by the public. Now for my comment:
    I like the idea, but I think that they should be minor changes instead of BIG changes because I wanna see some new spice up in there but not a whole new dish y'know what I mean?

    I totally agree! But i think the villages need stuff like walls and other things as well. They also should make mob more advanced!! Because i can kill over a hundred zombies while also trading with a villager. Villagers and mobs should be more intelligent and villagers should be in armor and kill mobs in bigger villages. Please understand that i love the game and only want to have a good time in villages and can use better techniques in fighting and seeing what our true skill for the BEST game ever. Thanks.

    The one most in need of work is the dungeon.

    Its just a room with a spawner and two chests. Compared to the end dungeon thats not good enough. Each dungeon should have 2-4 rooms randomly selected from a wide variety. Each room has a bit of furniture and decoration blocks, maybe bricks or one of the other harder to get building materials. When you find one you are happy to have found cool building materials as well as the chests and spawner. Having more rooms also gives the spawner time to build up some mobs while the player looks around. >:)

    I can agree with this except for the villages, the old villages look a bit too plain and similar.  The variety in the old village buildings are almost non-existent.  The palette they used is a bit too, lets say, not unique.  Many players already uses mostly cobblestone and wood/logs to build their homes, and I don’t think players are getting too much inspirations from these.  With the new village remodel, I as a builder myself too started to think about: what can I do to make my builds blend in or contrast the environment better?  What is possible with the resources that are available in this area?  And most importantly, what kind of style suits the surroundings?  While yes, they still aren’t grand or monumental, but this is just a beginning for a new era for villages.  I can be very sure that this isn’t anywhere close to their final forms just yet.  I can also say the same for all the other overlooked structures.  I want the people to remember that these generated villages are meant to give inspirations to those who are new to building, and a challenges for adept builders to test their ability to rebuild wherever they see fit.

    I absolutely agree. Jungle Temples, Desert Temples, Ocean Monuments, and Nether Fortresses are especially dated looking. I'd even say ALL structures other than the newly introduced ones need complete redesigns.

    I like the idea of a redesign.. but I also wouldn't like to lose the current versions completely. Perhaps keep them the same but just give them a few of the new decorative blocks.

    I think more variety would be great. The current temples could still spawn but you might also find say a desert temple with just two towers and a different kind of trap or one with no towers but like a large pyramid and the treasure is at the top of the pyramid instead of the bottom of a shaft.

    I honestly do agree with this, the Nether Fortresses are rather barren most of the time in my experience on my Survival World, like, they only have chests with loot (which there aren't a lot of), Blaze Spawners which could be made into farms, Netherwart which pretty much no one cares about except potion users and occasional Wither Skeletons. And those stuff are rather small compared to the amount of space taken by the hallways, which aren't exclusive at all considering you could make the bricks out of the netherrack nearby, the hallways also are very basic in design. These Fortresses would be very small without the hallways and only the valuables!
    And the Desert and Jungle Temples would need some more stuff done, like decoration, maybe more traps, more rooms etc. They just become very predictable!
    And I think especially the Dungeons need an overhaul, even some decoration to represent the spawner would make it seem better, maybe with corridors! Like cobwebs around the spider spawner. Craters around a Creeper spawner! I feel like the Dungeons are rather forgotten about by the devs, they don't even appear in the locate command!

    Here's a few of my thoughts on structures in general -

    Overall, I think the game is nearing "Structure Fatigue" where there's far too many structures close by. Hoping for biomepacks soon to adjust structure frequency.

    Dungeons - I feel like these were supposed to make caves more dangerous when they were first added. (there should be creeper spawners, BTW, and spawners should have a blast resistance like obsidian). At the very least, spawner mobs should have an AI tag that makes them flee the spawner room and head into the tunnels, plus have a larger stop/de-spawn radius from the player.

    Mine-shafts - Should be less frequent at/near (1024x1024 blocks?). I find a good cave system more enjoyable than mine-shafts.

    Ravines - FAR too common. I've seen worlds with 6-8 ravines within view distance of spawn using spectator mode (16 chunk render distance). However, with that being said, I would like to see wider ravines (maybe a biome where such a ravine would exist).

    Shipwrecks & Ocean Ruins - would like to see these a little less, or larger oceans to make them less concentrated.

    Maybe just a sight makeover, and make it a bit harder would be nice.

    Grian posted a video on how dungeons should look, I think it's brilliant.

    I think that yes, a redesign is in order, but not too the point where they're too elaborate, because new players wouldn't be inspired to build anything, just in awe of what Mojang made.

    I agree 100% with this idea I would say that every structure in Minecraft except the mansion needs to be redesigned. I cannot stress this enough.
