    Woah woah. You started with a great idea. And th3n it’s blew up(puns) if the volcano was mountain sized, but not enormous, having basalt, black sand, white sand, magma, lava, and obsidian, and erupted now and again that would be awesome! If you found any lakes generated in the biome, they could hot springs!

    Actually, we have most of the effects/mechanics needed to simulate an "eruption." Let me reference a few blocks/mobs that have said effects/behaviors that could help make a visually appealing eruption.

    1. Lava already has a particle that sparks of the lava block. (increasing the number of these particles when the lava is rising could help make it look more like an eruption)

    2. Furnaces have smoke particles.

    3. when it snows snow layers pile up gradually. (Also, if you place a lava block in the air and cut of its source before it fully spreads, if you look closely, a very thin sheet of lava will start to fall to the ground. So in a way we already kind of have thin lava layers)

    So I guess its just a bunch of particles with rising lava. As long as the particles are in a moderate amount it shouldn't cause to much lag for a rare short event.

    Sure, it'd be a little complicated to actually code out, but anything worth having takes work to earn. Complication/a little elbow grease shouldn't be a reason to count out a good idea. Especially if it adds a nostalgic air of realism to the game that could also pose a slight obstacle for the player.

    I like the idea of a volcano biome. I think ash blocks and ash layers would be great also. They could spawn around the the volcano.

    For "erupting" the volcano can just be constantly pouring a lava river out of the erupting side.

    Love the idea! Usually volcanic eruptions are mostly ash, so what if an eruption in this biome was programmed like snow in mountain biomes? It would be pretty cool if "volcanic ash" (new item/block) built up (just like snow layers when it snows). Also "volcanic ash" would work as a fertiliser (ash is a great fertiliser IRL) to compliment bone meal. 

    I also think that the "weather status?" "volcanic eruption" should reduce the players visibility distance a lot so the world looks darker.

    I think that is a good idea, but the volcano is too high. What about the crater edge at Y150?

    And dormant volcanoes? That volcanoes not explodes, but they are made with colled lava block. 

    And Nether vulcanoes?


    Please give my ideas attention,
    Thanks

    While a neat concept, its too complicated for my taste. You are adding whole new MECHANISMS in the game, not just blocks and structures. Erupting would be very difficult to pull off and actually make it have an effect on the player, like actual lava filling the whole place up. Honestly, not my thing.

    We already have the nether, but it would be really cool (especially since it can erupt) and mojang could also add basalt (that cooled black lava block you said)

    Great idea, but i think that it should just "rain" lava particles as an eruption, I think it should damage you as rain damages blazes. Also, another great idea would be faster crop growth (ash is nutritious to plants) and surface ores that generate. This would make it a great balanced biome because there then, would be benefits (crop growth, surface ores) with risks (dying in lava rain.) also lava rain should destroy dropped items.

    Sounds good. Could be a little smaller though. That sounds like a big mountain to take up a whole biome so why not just put one in a jungle or something. Good idea though.

    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.

    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.

    Please make this Official plz.

    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.

    JUST ADD IT MOJANG! PLEASE!!!

    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

    Other than the snow and villages, that is the Nether.

    I have my idea here of the same topic:

    There will be a very rare chance that there is a volcano on the ground. It will be made of stone and obsidian, stretching to bedrock. Inside will be filled with lava.

    However this may lag weak enough computers.

    I think the volcano idea has some real merit since lava is already in the game.

    World height doesnt go above 128 blocks unless ur in amplified, i k a similar game that had lag bc the build height was so high and it had to be brought down to 128 blocks

    it would be pretty cool to wander around and find a huge volcano the size of a biome

    Eruption would be difficult, but the Volcano biome idea is just great! What about a new cinder block that can be divided in bone meals?

    THIS IS THE BEST BIOM IDEA EVER! And also add VERY valuable treasures inside the volcano 🌋 and maybe even a big boss

    Yeah you should add it it's a good idea so we give another use for the lava
