    I think this should've been a part of the neather update. It could be a rare structure/biome that forms in giant caverns in the neather. Instead of erupting, the volcano could render with spewing lava.

    the new mechanics in this volcano biome would not be very "MOJANG" style however the biome as an aesthetic and maybe unique mobs sounds marvelous!

    We could have a couple of types of volcano:

    Peleian volcanoes have small lava fountains and wide, low cones mainly of volcanic rock across which the lava spreads.

    Plinian volcanoes have a tall, conical shape, and when they erupt, they spew lava, magma bombs and poisonous gas clouds high into the air, and cover the ground in snow-like layers of ash that the player can harvest and craft into bone meal (since volcanic ash contributes to soil fertility when broken down), or vanishes gradually with rain, finally leaving a well-bone-meal-treated landscape when it vanishes.

    If the lava in a plinian volcano solidifies into obsidian in the upper cone, the next time it erupts, the cone may explode as did Mt. St Helens. This would be forewarned by snow melting, fissures forming around the base, and plumes of visible smoke, plus earthquakes.

    The cooled lava could be basalt

    Some of this might make for a good Nether biome.

    If this is implemented, it would be AWESOME. It should be made of magma, stone, blackstone and basalt.

    Instead of eruption being like common make it like suuuuuuuuper rare

    Also, it would be cool that around the volcano there is a burnt forest with only wooden logs and a lot of ashes on the ground.

    I think you are talking about the nether, excluding the villages and snow...

    Should be a rare biome.  Or you could have 2 versions of the biome.  One is a volcano biome while another could be a meteor impact biome.  They'd be very similar but one would be a large hole in the ground while the other is a huge mountain with a lava pool and magma tubes.

    Better oars in volcano biome chunks and then we’re talking. Maybe even small lava golems as hostiles inside the walls on the inside of said volcano.

    Honestly even if this doesn’t make it into the over world I think it should at least be in the nether

    that is defintiely a very cool idea as a rare biome with new loot and block types

    Volcano?Sounds good!But it is difficult to realize volcanic eruption in the game.I think it's better to generate only one volcanic relic on the map than to let the volcano erupt.
    Sorry, my English is not good. I used applied translation.I don't usually use English.

    And lava can flow 7 blocks from source in this biome.....

    This could be an amazing biome! These are my thoughts on what it could be. Imagine having to climb down the volcano to find rare ores in a giant magma pit exposed by the sun atop, which would be very unique and beautiful. It could also fit other play styles like if you're careful you could mine through the side of the volcano and avoid magma pools while digging to get to the rare ores. Sure some of this is unrealistic but that's what makes it unique, plus it's a perfect example of risk for reward, and spices up your Minecraft adventure, especially when building a base in it or around it. Instead of erupting since in actuality it takes a heck ton of time before one erupts, it would just generate with lava flowing down the sides and create those big booming sounds rarely. You could think of it as a rare type of ambience in that biome specifically. The volcano would be very very deep with lava to build around and dodge and ledges to build to. To give justice to that thought, water would evaporate somewhat deep within the volcano so you can't entirely or at all land on a water bucket to quickly get through the volcano. The villages would be a cool idea if you could save them from lava that was flowing and destroying their village. The volcano in the mountain would look very beautiful and it's also accurate to how they form. I think that this would fit so well into vanilla minecraft if we just had the right combination of ideas together.

    It should include volcanic fields with basalt and steam vents. If you put a furnace on the vents it's like geothermic power and it never needs replenished. Building would be hard because wood bursts into flame if its directly on the basalt.

    So smart

    You could have ancient debris in the volcano! It would seem more connected to the nether that way.

    What if the volcano existed in the nether and overworld? So volcanos would only spawn where basalt deltas are in the nether and the volcano base be at least 4 times larger in the nether. Whenever the volcano erupted, the nether lava ocean nearby would all start moving towards the base of the volcano?

    this is a great idea however the eruption is too complicated imo i think the eruption should be a ash falling from the sky like in basalt deltas and maybe lava floowing out on one side and some of your crops die out during it besides that great idea

    cool idea but one thing..

     

     

    there should be an active volcano biome and an inactive one

    And they should probably add a villager scientist working in the volcano

    También debería de tener bloques de basalto a mi parecer así le da esa esensia tosca y seca

    One idea for that volcano biome would be that it will implement a few villages which have their new clothes and find new exchanges and inside each volcano finds a fossil as it would be super complicated to get

    muy buena actualizacion si saldiera me imagino que en la erupcion serian como dispensers soltando lava hacia arriba la verdad que seria muy buena si sale podria salir en la MONTANSE UPDATE ya que tiene nieve y bueno seria una montaña podria tener BASTANTES lagos de lava al rededor abajo del volcan no tan cerca de la aldea. Seria un gran detalle que este un poco deforestado como si fuera la erupcion (simplemente seria para que no se quemen arboles si la erupcion llegara al suelo) y poner raices de arboles como si esas partes no hubieran sido quemadas y eso hubiera quedado del arbol.

    Espero que salga MI VOTO

    I like the idea but the Y coordinates are very tall and the villages that the villagers only have the profesion of smith armored

    parece un bioma muy interesnte y cae perfecto con la actualizacion 1.17 de montañas y daria una sugerencia que adentro se generace obsidiana y una cantidad de minerales absurda pero controlada
