    Other than the snow and villages, that is the Nether.

    Woah woah. You started with a great idea. And th3n it’s blew up(puns) if the volcano was mountain sized, but not enormous, having basalt, black sand, white sand, magma, lava, and obsidian, and erupted now and again that would be awesome! If you found any lakes generated in the biome, they could hot springs!

    While a neat concept, its too complicated for my taste. You are adding whole new MECHANISMS in the game, not just blocks and structures. Erupting would be very difficult to pull off and actually make it have an effect on the player, like actual lava filling the whole place up. Honestly, not my thing.

    Actually, we have most of the effects/mechanics needed to simulate an "eruption." Let me reference a few blocks/mobs that have said effects/behaviors that could help make a visually appealing eruption.

    1. Lava already has a particle that sparks of the lava block. (increasing the number of these particles when the lava is rising could help make it look more like an eruption)

    2. Furnaces have smoke particles.

    3. when it snows snow layers pile up gradually. (Also, if you place a lava block in the air and cut of its source before it fully spreads, if you look closely, a very thin sheet of lava will start to fall to the ground. So in a way we already kind of have thin lava layers)

    So I guess its just a bunch of particles with rising lava. As long as the particles are in a moderate amount it shouldn't cause to much lag for a rare short event.

    Sure, it'd be a little complicated to actually code out, but anything worth having takes work to earn. Complication/a little elbow grease shouldn't be a reason to count out a good idea. Especially if it adds a nostalgic air of realism to the game that could also pose a slight obstacle for the player.

    I have my idea here of the same topic:

    There will be a very rare chance that there is a volcano on the ground. It will be made of stone and obsidian, stretching to bedrock. Inside will be filled with lava.

    However this may lag weak enough computers.

    I think the volcano idea has some real merit since lava is already in the game.

    World height doesnt go above 128 blocks unless ur in amplified, i k a similar game that had lag bc the build height was so high and it had to be brought down to 128 blocks

    I like the idea of a volcano biome. I think ash blocks and ash layers would be great also. They could spawn around the the volcano.

    We already have the nether, but it would be really cool (especially since it can erupt) and mojang could also add basalt (that cooled black lava block you said)

    it would be pretty cool to wander around and find a huge volcano the size of a biome

    Very cool idea but don't make it erupt.

    Esta idea es la mejor

    For "erupting" the volcano can just be constantly pouring a lava river out of the erupting side.

    That's COOL.A volcano?.It's COOLidea

    That would be incredible

    Eruption would be difficult, but the Volcano biome idea is just great! What about a new cinder block that can be divided in bone meals?

  • Avatar

    THIS IS THE BEST BIOM IDEA EVER! And also add VERY valuable treasures inside the volcano 🌋 and maybe even a big boss

  • Avatar

    Yeah you should add it it's a good idea so we give another use for the lava

    Love the idea! Usually volcanic eruptions are mostly ash, so what if an eruption in this biome was programmed like snow in mountain biomes? It would be pretty cool if "volcanic ash" (new item/block) built up (just like snow layers when it snows). Also "volcanic ash" would work as a fertiliser (ash is a great fertiliser IRL) to compliment bone meal. 

    I also think that the "weather status?" "volcanic eruption" should reduce the players visibility distance a lot so the world looks darker.

    There could be different types of volcanoes such as Shield, Cinder, and Composite volcanoes!

    Take it one step further, you could have extinct Volcanos that are filled with water.

    Great idea but what if 1 in every 5 volcanoes has a cave in it

    Great idea, but i think that it should just "rain" lava particles as an eruption, I think it should damage you as rain damages blazes. Also, another great idea would be faster crop growth (ash is nutritious to plants) and surface ores that generate. This would make it a great balanced biome because there then, would be benefits (crop growth, surface ores) with risks (dying in lava rain.) also lava rain should destroy dropped items.

    Been wanting this for a while. Maybe not so huge, but I’ve loved the idea of a volcano, wot a crater, and maybe a “lava” chamber that went down to bedrock. Possibly some ores could be placed as well. The small village on the side is a nice touch too! Volcanoes should be rare, but this sounds great. Particles and such could simulate the minor “eruption”, so it doesn’t lag too much. Maybe if the lava rises and falls a few blocks? Similar to me having the idea of minor/localized “flooding” during heavy storms.
    For the most part, I’m on board.

    Sounds good. Could be a little smaller though. That sounds like a big mountain to take up a whole biome so why not just put one in a jungle or something. Good idea though.

    the idea it's a bit difficult to make, but I think that a volcano biome (without erupting) in which plants are death and  burned and all the terrain is cover by ashes  that come from the sky and reduce vision.
