How can we make the biomes and dimensions you explore better? What biomes or dimensions are we currently missing? Why do we need them and what makes them unique?

    I would like seasons as well as on thing I have to do Is layer snow all over my world for winter and that is just too laggy and takes too long so having seasons in the game would be great.

    It should be toggleable for people that don’t want it

    @TortugaOnline or they could make a calendar year much like one in real-life that counts Minecraft days as well as making it able to be toggled

    I thought of this idea also and here is how I would implement it in a logical way: 

    • The seasons will include summer, fall, winter, and spring in that order
    • Seasons would occur across all biomes excluding desert, jungle, snowy plains, ice pillars, and oceans. (At least what I can think of off the top of my head, add more biomes that would make sense if you want to) 
    • The use of seasons would be toggleable in world creation
    • Each season would last three moon cycles
    • The main feature of a seasonal update would be the leaf blocks changing colors (due to being a major part of how people recognize what season it is in the real world and would create a major atmospheric effect) 

    Here are particular ideas for each specific season. (Any excluded thing would remain normal as in the same as Minecraft without seasons, anything with "(maybe)" following it means doesn't have to be included in the game but would fit in nicely)

    Summer:

    • Game temperature would be higher
    • Less rain (maybe) 
    • Longer days (maybe)
    • Crops will have a lower tick speed (due to the raised temperature, maybe)

    Fall:

    • Leaf blocks (excluding spruce) will turn into colors of yellow, orange, and red depending on the tree
    • Leaf blocks (excluding spruce) will have a falling leaves particle effect under them (maybe)
    • Leaf blocks (excluding spruce) would have another texture that is more transparent (have fewer leaves, maybe)

    Winter: 

    • Game temperature would be lower
    • Leaf blocks (excluding spruce) would have a texture of dead branches and would only drop sticks
    • Or leaf blocks (excluding spruce) would change to the color white
    • Spruce leaf blocks would change to the color white
    • It would snow instead of rain (due to lower temperature) 
    • It would snow more often resulting in snow-covered ground and keeping it covered (maybe)
    • White leaf blocks would have a snowfall particle effect under them (maybe)
    • Water sources have a chance of turning into ice blocks (maybe)
    • Shorter days (maybe) 
    • Crops will have a lower tick speed (due to the lowered temperature, maybe)

    Spring: 

    • Certain leaf blocks (excluding spruce) would change to the colors of pink or white to represent blossoms (maybe)
    • Leaf blocks (excluding spruce) would have another texture that is more transparent (have fewer leaves, maybe)
    • Rains more often (maybe)

    These ideas would be most of the main features of a seasonal update or could just be a small add on to another type of update. These ideas are only my opinion of what should be included. I just feel this would be the most logical approach for an update that includes seasons and its details. Feel free to comment on more ideas that would make sense if you have any. I would like to see them. :) 

    (Sorry about the long post, just want it all out there)

    During the autumn, dead leaf layers could appear under trees as they lose their leaves. These dead leaf layer blocks would act pretty much like snow layers, but be dead leaves instead.

    I think this should be the next update. The player should have the option to enable or disable seasons when creating or editing a world. A cool idea for creative role play worlds would be letting the player choose the length of each season. Spring should be very green. At the start of spring all the plants (including trees) should be recovering from winter but towards the end of spring plant life should be flourishing. Some trees in spring should be pink. Summer should make the grass a brighter tint of green than spring and still have plant life but no pink trees. Crops should grow best in spring and summer. Autumn should make all the trees leaves go brown, orange and gold over the course of days. Spruce trees should remain dark green. At the end of autumn there should be not a lot of leaves left on the trees. The grass should be more yellow in autumn. Winter should make farming hard or impossible without bone meal. The grass should be a cold blue/green and some lakes and rivers should freeze. Some animal could hibernate. There should be no leaves left on trees (except spruce trees). Hail stones could be a new weather type and it could snow sometimes as well. (In spring it should rain a lot). The Jungle, Savannah, desert and snowy biomes should not be effected by seasons, crop growth in snowy biomes should be slow. Jungles biomes should make crops grow at the normal speed. Please add seasons to the game.

    I've always wanted seasons in Minecraft. You could make it so that, depending on the difficulty level, it would change the number of crop drops/growth speed And make animals need more food to breed

    Game would start at spring. Achievements:

    achievement for reaching day 2 in spring: "a fresh start"

    achievement for reaching summer "it´s getting hot"

    achievement for reaching fall: "winter is coming ..."

    achievement for reaching winter: "a whole year, and many to pass ..."

    Calendar crafted from one clock and 4 sheets of paper to represent the 4 different seasons.  Could be mounted on the wall. This would help to better keep track of when you are in any given season.  This would help when planning for seasonable tasks (farming, harvesting, fishing).  If seasons are tied to moon phases, the various phases could be indicated on the calendar.

    Very nice idea. Maybe like in real life the seasons could change slowly.
