    This idea could possibly be in the nether

    Sounds good, but having eruptions seem like a bit of the a stretch for Minecraft. I think volcanos shouldn't be too big and have diamonds occasionally appearing on the surface. (This should be a pretty rare biome)

    It was cool at first, but i'd prefer a smaller size. Maybe it peaks at around y-135 at its highest? anywho, This is a really cool Idea, ans some hots springs or haline lakes to go along with this would be cool too.

    I believe a subtype of this biome would be cool too. There would be dormant volcanos, and no longer active volcanos. It would fit great for the Cliffs side of the Caves and Cliffs update!

    This is an amazing idea! It would go great with the caves and cliffs biome, because it is both a cave and a mountain!

    I like the idea of a volcano. I feel like this would fit in the Nether and it would be made out of basalt or black stones. Instead of eruption you can have lava spewing out of the volcano instead. If most people want it to be in the overworld that would be fine too.

    Amazing idea! How about adding this in the cave and cliff update. It would fit the theme!

    Maybe a bit like the basalt deltas, but with little hills and not so much lava.

    A cooled of Volcano ould be possible.

    they also shouldn't be that tall, just up to Y70.

    What about a ruined Village instead of an inhabited one

    This is a great idea, I would like to add a few things:

    • Eruptions seem a little extreme, Mojang has specifically stated that they do not want anything that can potentially destroy the player's builds and overall experience with unexpected cataclysms (Lightning, looking atcha')
    • Ash seemed like a good idea, they can be formed when a piece of log gets burnt, or even when a piece of log stays burning for a long time. Maybe they can be the tree itself. Make them a fertilizer specifically for trees. Ash could also reduce render distance severely
    • To maybe add some risk, the Volcano could have deep crevices in it.

    This is a grat idea. I think a good location for them would be in oceans. In real life there a lot of volcanos as well. Volcanos would be a good opportunity to allow us to get basalt in the overworld. There could as well be a new type of dirt or soil on which crops grew faster. Volcanos destroy but create soil with a lot of minerals. That would be some things to consider as well.

    There could also be burnt, charred trees dotting the biome

    There could be caves in the volcanoes

    I would love it if only the villages werent made of lava as that just seems weird, but i like the idea of the volcano actually exploding into the air!

    I'm not sure about the complexity of this idea, however, I find some of the fundamentals very interesting. I like the idea of bringing strategy back into building as you presented with the eruption mechanic. This was partially done with raids and villages, encouraging players to build walls. I believe biome specific event that the player can prevent/ protect against would be interesting. (avalanche, dust storm) they need not be occurring often however if the player is able to prevent said event with building or an item it would make building and exploration way more interesting. Peoples way of life will be tailored to the biome they build in. It would provide a whole new risk and reward to building and would encourage planning a build as well.

    Not a biome, but some individually vulcanoes in the mountains, with lava and errupt proabality would be great!

    That's a great idea.
    I think we need a volcano.

    Maybe the volcano already has flowing lava when you find the biome...

    I saw a comment that said maybe a "big boss" in the volcano, and that got me thinking... Instead of having an eruption (Which would be hard to do in a systemic game like minecraft) what if there was just a boss monster that spawns, one in each volcano, that shoots streams of lava? Not lava source blocks, but just the lava, which will spread out and disappear after a little bit, so it doesn't destroy the world. This would be similar to an eruption, and possibly make volcanoes worth seeking and surviving. I saw a video long ago that suggested a "lava kraken" which I think would be a great addition. And since a volcano is a large structure, new players who aren't prepared won't be killed by it too easily. I notice that all overworld bosses or high level areas are clearly identifiable, so you only go there when you're ready. The volcano accomplishes that nicely.
