    While I like the idea of a Volcano Biome, I feel as though snow wouldn't make sense seeing how the biome is a hot biome, villagers would likely die off quickly due to how harsh the environment is, and an eruption event would cause needless block updates that could result in hindered performance. However, I do think this idea could be expanded on, first with biome variants. Idle Volcano Biomes could still contain lava, but would not have lava flow out without player input. Perhaps this variant could also reward adventurers with a cave that contains treasures at the risk of lava? Active Volcano Biomes could generate with lava flowing over the sides to simulate an eruption. Lastly, Underwater Volcano Biomes could generate underwater, and have plenty of obsidian. Perhaps each variant could also generate with small surface patches of diamond ore, to reward and encourage adventuring, and to reflect how real life diamonds are formed.

    Me parace muy buena idea, pero también añadiría alguna utilidad al bioma...

    Por ejemplo: añadiría un mineral especíal que solo se pudiese conseguir en ese bioma, como rubís u otra cosa y además haría que este bioma fuese dificil de encontar, tambien añadiría un segundo bioma que sería el bioma volcánico inactivo, este sería igual que el anterior pero sin lava, ya que se habría apagado... podria inculos haber nieve en estos biomas...

    Además añadiria algun mob para este bioma, pero eso os lo dejo a vosotros

    Sounds like a lot of lag

    Volcano biome I think is way more unique than the oasis biome personally

    This is a great idea, and something that could be added would be a lava dragon or something like that and it swims around at the very bottom of it. However, in an eruption event, it swims toward the surface and shoots up and out, and will search the eruption side for the player, and will engage a fight, but when killed could drop a lava idol, which could be something similar to the immunity idol, but instead it removes lava damage from the player.

    it could look something like this (still a work in progress)

    Love the idea but wouldn't cooled lava block just be obsidian? I imagine this would be a good place to farm some at least.

    i think there should also be a lot of obsidian and rock for coolness purposes and realistic purposes

    to be honest though, im not sure we would need eruptions, I kind of like the idea that you find out what happened afterwards

    Similar to snow, ash could fall down as well in layers and last a few minutes, this could be beneficial to soil, adding new levels of fertilization, this could be seen in f3 targeted-block, this could effect the growth time and when it erupts the ash will cover the area around the biome and give a "ash inhalation" effect, many of this can be added because some of the mechanisms are already in Minecraft, such as snowfall, it would be re-textured, growth level would be a bonemeal-like effect, ash inhalation would give a low level blindness/wither effect, I would enjoy this very much In Game, please consider this!

    I like literally every idea you just had right there.

    I think there should be different levels of eruption intensity from 1 (weakest) to 5 (strongest). Stronger eruptions would make ash clouds that block sunlight and create thunderstorms. Lava flows would also be affected by the eruption intensity. More powerful eruptions could rip apart the volcano and spray the lava inside around the volcano, just like in real life.

    if this was added, a dark gray/medium gray sky should be visible as you enter the biome. Like ash.

    A scorched land would be better, in my opinion. With cinder in place of snow, burned/dead wood (a black new wood), etc.

    You could have the cooled lava block be pumice. You could also make it cobblestone or obsidian too.

    I was thinking diamonds could spawn on the surface, kinda like how mesa biomes work.

    Rather put this in the nether.

    i think this is an amazing idea. i also think there should be some kind of rare ore i the volcano meaning it would be a big risk to try to obtain it due to the occasional eruptions.

    Maybe make this a new nether biome

    They should add blue lava too,
    Each volcano has a 15% chance of spawning with blue lava

    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).

    I think it’s a great idea I was thinking about it the other day

    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?
