    Seems pretty neat. Perhaps at random intervals, lava spouts could shoot out of the lava ocean.

    I love this idea. Maybe add a lave storm ?

    They could also add like a 'wither storm' (the weather type not the one in story mode) where there is like a time when certain areas in the nether could inflict the wither effect on non nether creatures.

    Maybe it could be similar to an earthquake, where blocks above would break and pockets of lava would flow down. Or maybe random patches of glowstone would explode into lava when being mined.

    My idea is that at rare times the lava rises a few blocks.

    I don’t think rains or storms would work because nether doesn’t have a open sky. Maybe earthquakes or fountains that’ll happen in lava oceans

    I think that there should be some sort of phenomenon in the nether, but nothing that makes it more dangerous. It also shouldn't be anything like an overworld storm. there was one idea I had in mind.
    All the netherrack turns gray and the gravity is weakened.
    I don't know what you would call this, but it would definitely make the nether a lot more interesting.

    That would make the Nether even more scary, I am 100 percent against this idea.

    Seems like a good idea. Lava rain wouldn't make any since due to the ceiling above the Nether. A steam/fog could rise from the lava and prohibit the player's vision. Glowstone blocks can randomly fall and shatter when they hit lava or the ground. The lava spout ideas would be cool. When you're near your portal, a villager or other passive mobs could stumble in. They would express their confusion with expressions or particles seeming to say "I'm not suppose to be here...." then go back to the Overworld.

    For Nether Fortresses, maybe you see a random battle between two wither skeletons, two pigmen, or two blazes. It would be similar to a skeleton accidently shooting another skeleton. With the hundreds of pigmen nearby, maybe you can spot two baby ones chasing each other and play fighting. Also wither skeleton horse traps would be sweet especially if you avoid it and can tame a wither skeleton horse.

    How about an underground volcano, it spews lava from underneath?

    Like patches of acid fog that poison you, and you can throw bottles into it to capture the fog to make a potion of poison. Like dragons breath, which is still useless btw <3

    What I can think of is a heat wave. When you stay unsave for too long you will start burning. Luckily there is a new type of armor wich will protect you from the heat wave. But the deal is that you are more vulnerable with it, because it absorbs less damage than diamond or iron armor. You can also prevent getting damage by just drink a potion of fire resistance.

     

    Another Idea I have is, a random event were a new type of mob spawns everywhere. How about some lava insect wich will come out of the lava everywhere when the event happens? There would finnaly be a new mob being vulnerable to bane of arthropods. 

     

    Another Idea: When you kill a ghast, there is a tiny chance it will spawn 3 - 6 small ghasts, wich shoot missiles similar to them from the ender dragon, creating an area wich will damage you, only that these areas are much smaller and take less damage to you. They are also in a firy red istead of purple.

    The creepiest "Event" would be if The Nether suddenly went SILENT for about as long as a single raincycle does.

    What about it can "ash"? Ash rains down from the sky and piles up like snow, collectible with a shovel.

    I think the nether weather would have to be unique compared to real weather. It would be easy to say lava rain but I think instead it could be a (laugh at me later because the name just was unfortunate to be there) wither storms. Black moody fog that coats soul sand valleys and basalt deltas. It would be hard to navigate and play eerie ghost noises. If you stay in the biome for too long (3 mins or more) your body will succumb to the pollution and slowly wither you until you die.

    So ghast spawning has been fixed in the soul sand valley, which is good, however it would be nice to have the old spawning happen very rarely. The "ghast uprising" would return the old spawning (minus the endermen); happens as rare as thunderstorms and only lasts a couple minutes, if not seconds. It would be dangerous, but would also be a great opportunity to collect ghast tears, gunpowder, bones, and arrows.

    It would also be cool to have a "war zone" event happen near fortresses. When a piglin and a wither skeleton attack each other, sometimes it will summon an army of about 30 adult piglins (outside the fortress) and about 20 wither skeletons (inside the fortress), clashing in a battle. This would be a great opportunity to get wither skeleton skulls.

    Um, uncommon things do happen in the Nether.  For example, I was just mining my own business mining glowstone, when suddenly there was a terrible shriek an a fireball blew me to smithereens and blew my smithereens into a lake of lava.

    Perhaps a cloud of withering ash will pervade areas of the nether.

    I think if there were to be natural occurrences in the nether, it would be more earth-based weather like earthquakes or trembles. Say if there were earthquakes, the ceilings of the nether could possibly trickle out lava, making the player find shelter to shield from the burns. These earthquakes could also make certain mobs appear more frequently during those times, and other mobs could spawn less during those times.

    Earthquakes (or, rather, netherquakes?) would be nice. They would also lag most players out but the visual effect shouldn't be all too different from the nausea debuff.

    Lava spouts would be cool as heck, too. It'd create an element of danger when riding striders, or maybe striders could protect the player from it? Perhaps they'd be meant to discourage bridging across the floor of the nether and instead utilize striders. And they'd also be glorious to watch! :D

    Wither skeleton riding a black undead-horse sometimes appears in the nether, on lower area. (0 to 64).
    This black undead-horse would not be burnable.

    I think a type of fog that will make it hard for you to see very far and will give you an effect not sure what kind but the idea that you can get covered in thick fog in the nether and lose your way is neat.

    Two words: soul sand storm. Wait, that's three words.

    Maybe there can be an event where smoke clouds (from fires and lava) form near the ceiling of the nether, and then ash rains down from them. Maybe the severity of the falling ash can change depending on where you are, like if you are near a lava ocean, it can have more of an effect and the smoke blinds you more. Maybe the ash can cover and reveal new enemies that spawn during the event. Maybe you can collect the smoke in bottles for blindness potions? The downside of that may be that the smoke slowly chokes you and you lose air.
