    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

    Epic idea this would be the best place to get lava!

    You should make a volcano with over heated lava that's orange and can't be cooled. If you put it into a bucket it burns you and it has particles or you can make a steel bucket that you can make out of steel ingot. You can find steel by the volcano and random ores. There can be eruptions and the volcano eroupts when you mine 73 steel near it. There can be villages two and caves with lava under the volcano and new block called ion composite ore that is stronger than obsidian you can only mine it with blue steel pickaxe you make with 2 steel sticks and 4 diamond. And a new mob that throws a new item flaming rock you can only hold with gloves that are made with rubber and they look like stone but when you get close the stone melts off of them and reveals a redish iron fist whiteish skeleton under the volcano. You can also make lava glass. You can get rubber by combining a hammer and melted rubber you get from a lava skeleton. Pleaaaaaaaaase add this mojang................

    I think that instead of snow there should be ashes in the air

    Volcanoes often have dead lava flows on their sides, so perhaps basalt flows down the mountain as well.

    I would love to be adventuring on a volcano when it errupts and the have to run as the lava's falling.

    Perhaps the volcano biome could be more balanced with numerous smaller volcanoes, I also dont feel like it is necessary to have them erupt. I think that new blocks would be the coolest thing they could do for this biome.

    Most volcanic eruptions did not fully involve lava, some eruptions only have of smoke and debris shot into the air, so maybe Ash can rain on players and pile up like snow or small chunks of cobblestone can fall down and maybe crush players. Also maybe this place can have an infinite lava source as well as a purpose that doesn't only finding it like finding a mesa, cool until there's nothing to do.

    I think that there should be a chest inside of the volcano area were it is hollow with special items in it and you have to do parkour to get there

    I think it would be cool to have a biome like this, but I think that the snow, villages, and extreme height would be unnecessary. Maybe the biome could be split into two separate biomes.

    There could be a volcano plains biome which is a large wasteland where everything is made of ash, magma blocks, lava, and maybe a new type of rock like scorched stone or basalt. Maybe even burnt trees in some places that are made of scorched logs, which can then be turned into dark gray scorched planks. There could also be lava rivers running through it, and deep volcanic caves.

    Then there is the actual volcano biome. They could be around as big as a regular mountain, but more circular in shape. Honestly, it might be hard for Mojang to make an eruption system, so maybe lava running down the sides in some places could be enough. This biome would also have the lava rivers and the volcanic caves as well.

    Too complicated. I want smaller, simpler volcanos that can't erupt. A volcano would just be a large hill / small mountain made of basalt and filled with lava in the center. Much like what the RedPower mod added back in the day.

    The new basalt block is kinda like a cooled lava block :) hence we have all the blocks this biome need !

    Please Mojang it's your go !

    I think that if a Volcano biome were added it would be really cool if there was a new ore to go with it, may I suggest the ruby. The ruby would be like the emerald as it would only be found in the volcano biome. I think rubies should only be obtainable with a diamond pickaxe. I think it would be neat if there was a new weapon to go along with ruby. A staff. The staff would be craftable using two blaze rods and one ruby, the staff would do about as much damage as the trident when using it as a melee weapon but I think it would be neat if the staff could fire out orbs of energy like a bow. The staff would lose two durability points every time an orb was fired and lose one durability point every time the player used it as a melee weapon. The staff would be repairable by using rubies in an anvil. This is all just an idea but I really do think it would be a good thing to go along with a volcano biome.

    I dont think a volcano erupting would work with minecraft's nature. I just cant see it without it being either very stiff or to animated. Maybe instead of an eruption, there could be a new boss mob living inside the volcano

    Maybe instead of taking up the whole biome, it could be on a volcanic island? This would be a good place to add palm and coconut trees, as well as villages that have sort of an island theme.

    Imagine climbing down into the crater, and there’s a big alcove in the side with a red dragon nest! This would be awesome! Or maybe you need to find a volcano and place a dragon egg in it near the summit to hatch a red dragon.

    I think it’s a great idea and it will make a great biome for when people wanna do like re act Jurassic world fallen kingdom or just wanna do survive on a volcano.

    I love the idea, but:

    • Volcano shouldn't take up the entire biome; the biome itself should just have one or two big and several smaller volcanos
    • It should have obviously new blocks, like new types of sand or dust and basalt
    • Eruption seems unnecessarily complicated, but Mojang could review this
    • It could have lava rivers
    • Villages shouldn't be there, although I think Pillager Outposts could be there
    • It very much looks like overworld Nether, but it shouldn't compete with Nether, so it shouldn't have same mobs; in Nether there will be pig-related mobs, so this Volcano biome could have cow-related mobs, like a minotaur and a fire-cow, for example

    Will there be steam vents?

    In real life crops grow faster when slight ash falls on them. So maybe crops could grow faster? Also there could be a nether portal in the center of the volcano. Also the volcano should be closed off, because most volcanos rely on pressure, but there should be at least one or two steam vents.

    I think that within the volcano biome diamonds should be more frequent or even generate higher up due to how real world volcanoes form diamonds

    Now that we have basalt, maybe have basalt as the biome with obsidian and lava rivers going to water and large volcanic mountains with craters on top as the volcanoes are cones with lava on top in the crater with lava flows and rivers of lava going down the slopes of the volcano.

    I think it would be great if there was lava tubes. You could also make burned trees in the game, lastly you could make two types of volcanoes dormant and active

    This can be a good addition in the nether biome, and maybe a new volcano variant which can be found under the deep ocean.

    I can just imagine it There could be lots of obsidian magma blocks and lava and mountains with lava spewing out!!!!
