    I would do this a little more simply. I would skip villages and eruptions, but definitely make a really huge volcano surrounded by some other sub biome. Consider a volcano surrounded and partially covered by jungle, volcanic desert like out in Utah, volcanic plains like parts of Iceland, extremely mountainous and cold volcanic regions in otherwise very cold, snowy regions, volcanic islands in the ocean, etc.

    More than one volcano, and it would be cool if it acted like one too

    I agree. This could present a new challenge to the player if they come across it. I have some suggestions to add onto it too.

     

    1:  The cooled lava block could be basalt, as that is cooled lava IRL.

     

    2: When the Volcano is dormant, the “lava” at the bottom could be magma, it would do 8 points of damage instead of 5, and to collect it you would need a stronger bucket (diamond bucket), otherwise, the bucket would disappear and hurt you by 1 point of damage.

     

    3: Most volcanoes would be extreme hill - sized, but rarely, you could find stratovolcanoes. These volcanoes stretch above the build height limit, and when they erupt, not only could they do extreme amounts of damage to the environment, but they would also change the weather in all biomes, making it snowy for a long duration until it goes to normal. Hot biomes such as the desert and savanna would just start raining whenever there is precipitation.

    It would be extremely nice to add sulfur to it!

    I think that something more like a lava filled meteor crater type thing would work a bit better here because you would have some reason to actually search the place for some rare ores or loot that could spawn in the meteor.

    It actually sounds pretty cool but they would need to manage, that the lava isn't going to flow into other biomes like Jungles to prevent it from completely burning down...

    Look at - Lego Worlds - , it has a good Volcanic landscape , use it as a template.

    I think this is a cool idea, but in my opinion i would like it rather to be just a volcanic biome having volcanic activity that doesn't pour lava everywhere making builds close to it burn up. The biome should be a biome that only appears in the middle of the Gravelly mountains or the badlands to make it not look weird. Like it would be weird if you saw a snowy biome with a river seperating it from a desert with a volcanic biome right next to that, with a small touch of plains in the middle. So basically to make it look more natural. When the volcanic biome is made in a badlands or gravelly mountains, it should be called something like Volcanic gravelly mountains and Volcanic Badlands. Also it should be a bit rare. Now, For the volcanic stuff, if there is a mountain in the biome (probably around y = 105), it will or might be turned into a volcano having obsidian or probably basalt around the top and lava inside a hole formed in the top with more smoke effects than usual. For the eruptions, the standard lava "pops" or in other words the lava bubble effect can suddenly start to increase in quantity and reaching higher for a small amount of time, and could also have a shaking effect on players around (making what you see shake). This effect could then probably be accesible by commands for map makers. And the eruptions should also be controllable by commands like: "/gamerule doVolcanicEruption false/true"    and "/volcanicEvent @e[r=50,type=volcano] enable" or something like that idk. but for the Surrounding terrain in the volcanic biome, it should have areas with stone and small geyser like things with the magma blocks in it. Villages could probably spawn there but im not sure. Also mobs, special volcanic mobs would be epic, just absolutely EPIC.

    It would be great to see if the volcano would be larger

    I really like this idea, it adds more blocks to minecraft and, makes a little challenge. I would love to see a new block (cooled lava) and please, mojang don't use obsidian in this build, it wont look good, obsidian is not a good block to build with...

    Those hot springs could regenerate health too
    or just use as a food cooking source

    The volcano could be made from a new kind of stone

    Yeeeeeeeeah no. Maybe a structure, but this so far sounds ridiculously overcomplicated, and frankly pointless.

    Maybe there could even be a new block called lava rock.

    What’s the point?

    this is a sweet idea cause it erupt with lava everywhere

    I’m with you guys. I love the volcano biome idea, but there’s way too much going on here. Eruptions would change so many mechanics in the game and would destroy players builds and stuff. But having a biome with lava and magma and a big open hole in the top of a mountain would be really cool!

    Nice! Would it look kind of like Scar's Hermitcraft 6 island?

  • Avatar

    Yeah! We can also have magma blocks and a new zombie called the "The Engulfed"!

    I think that there should be a structure that spawns at the bottom of the volcano's caldera. Maybe it could have Nether Serpents mentioned here, as well as Dispensers loaded with the almost forgotten Fire Charges. 

    A small reference to the Fire Temple from Ocarina of Time, and it would spice up the biome even more ;)

    Please do this I absolutely love this so so so much!!!

    The limit is y=128 blocks. Unless in an amplified world, that idea is difficult. We just need the max to be around y=150 or something for all worlds.
