    I think that rather than just being it's own biome, Volcanoes should be generated structures that generate in biomes where mountains/volcanoes are seen more often in the real world (some of these biomes would likely include the extreme hills, Jungle hills (since it's the most mountainous of all basic hill biomes) Savannah and Mesa plateaus (which could be lava plateaus instead of tall, mountainous volcanoes), and all Ocean variants (and as a bonus for oceanic volcanoes, the ocean around them becomes a special warm ocean known as a Volcanic Ocean).

    You could have deposits of rare ores like diamond and emerald near the top. You could even have dug-out explorer shelters in the volcanoes which contain chests and furnaces, kind of like igloos except in volcano sides.

    Alternative way to do the eruption:
    When it would start raining in a volcano biome, there is instead an eruption. There is a loud boom sound, and ash particles begin to rain, similar to how snow falls in a cold biome. This ash would pile up, similar to how snow does.

    Maybe sulfur hot springs too? Also maybe you could incorporate the haste/mining fatigue potion in somehow?

    Thats super cool! I think it could create a large BOOM when it erupts. Maybe the lava could have bubbles!

    This could be a biome for the Nether, in the Nether update

    Probably popular cause we need a volcanic region type biome.

    Also make the terrain inside this biome change a little each time the volcano erupts, so that it creates new caves and ores each time.

    Would ash stack like snow does? Also could petrification occur to mobs?

    Nice idea, but what mob(s) would live there?

    Inside the volcano where the lava chamber is there could be a chest. Inside that chest there is a new added block or tool. It will be very valuable.

    Not a fan of most of your ideas for this but I'd love to see a volcanic biome.
    - Ash falls like snow,
    - Ash/burnt Zombies (opposite of drowned)
    - No plants, only gravel, stone, lava, ash blocks, maybe some obsidian spikes/pillars to make it look a bit more interesting
    - Ideally it would get harder, the closer to the crater you are

    - Also ruin villages with ash/burnt Zombies and some loot could be a nice biome specific structure.

    so the eruption might be hard to do but the rest of the idea is great and some things they could add would be ash blocks witch work as the snow mechanics and there could be new mobs and plant life but one thing tho max high is 128 i think so it should be just a little higher than mountains and found near mountain or in mountain ranges an maybe the village could be in ruins and there could be a treasure map to find, like the shipwrecks in the sea.

    The biome should also be rare and isolated like the mushroom island, and also should spawn new mobs and structures, and at the core should erupt once every 100 minecraft days

    It would be cool to have the volcano erupt as well.

     I really like this idea. Some other ideas could be that it has a special soil which grows plants faster (like real volcanoes) which also explains why villages would be there. Another idea would be that you have to save villages from destruction and if you do you get Hero of the Village or something similar and a gift of armour with fire resistance.

    I like it! A couple changes to make it fit the game better: shorter, like crater top at Y100 or so; eruptions sound cool but hard to implement. Perhaps the rain could be grey and silent in this biome to represent ash.

    I like the idea, but the volcano wouldn't necessarily have to cover the entire biome. I think a "scorched" biome to surround it with would be cool, where everything would be gray/black and burned. And/or maybe a "hot springs" biome with geysers and mammoths? (Yes, that last part was Skyrim inspired)

    Having a Volcano Biome would be awesome, since basalt is being added to the nether, a nether version of a Volcano Biome would also be interesting to having.

    I personally dont like this mechanic...how would it erupt? thers no need in such a biome...no opportunities for new blocks because we already have the nether for it. sry

    A cool mob addition to a volcano biome would be small dragons that could practically just act like phantoms (that are active at all times) that fly around the volcano. It could even be connected to the mythos of the end dragon if wanted as well.

    I think that this would be cool if paired with the heightening of the build limit to allow for even more spectacular geological structures. Perhaps the implementation of a few different types of volcanoes including underwater thermal vents in/around the deep sea and cold sea. This could help further diversify the ocean and potentially bring interesting mechanics into the game. Another example could be the different types of above water volcanoes and the different areas that they are found, such as a constantly erupting island, or a magnificent, unsuspecting cone that appears to be a mountain, but is prone to erupt at any second. This would be paired with an extremely long cooldown between eruptions (for the more explosive ones. Brought together it could bring a new way of playing and another level of risk for players. Perhaps players could also choose whether or not they wish to have eruptions take place either via /gamerule or by use of an option during world generation. The severity and frequency of eruptions could also be decided by the in-game difficulty.

    The concept of a volcano in Minecraft is cool, but I don't really like what you're suggesting. I don't think eruptions should happen, but lava dripping out the edges would be cool. I think it would be better if volcanos were the size of normal mountains, not "the tallest of the game" as you said. I think it would also be cool if not all volcanos were open air, and some were closed off at the top. It would also be cool if there were caves inside the volcano. I like the idea of the volcano being made of basalt, especially since it was recently added.

    would be cool if crops grew faster in this biome

    It would be cool if there was a lava geyser block (like in Grian's video) that if you stand on it it erupts and sends you into the air, also it could push you up when you fly over with elytra. Great idea!! :D
