    Very good,

    ABANDONED CASTLES =

    Building material: black stone, magma block (maybe lava?), Banners, mossy stone, iron bars, a door of large (4 * 3) windows, generally the castle with a regular size

    Chests containing: weathered iron or mail armor, haunted books

    Hostile Mafia: 2 kinds of wizards, evoker, illusioner.

    Item dropped by the mafias: resurrection totem, ??? ...... maybe haunted books?

    Most definitely agree with this! 

     

    Snow biomes lack much variety besides the rare igloo you'll come across. Snow Castles would give more reason to venture through the freezing tundras. Similar to Woodland Mansions, maybe there is a small mini boss at the top. Or maybe just a powerful mob that dropped a special item. Giving more reason to explore the castle!

    Yes this would be so awesome and be a bit like d&d and quests would be so fun!

    They should be huuuuuuuuuuge like mansions but bigger with some type of illagers with swords and iron armor With natural defense points and a chainmail texture (not armor but like on the skin of the illager). Illusioners should spawn here too.

    With the addition of Piglin Bastions in 1.16, this idea becomes all the more feasible. Huge structures have now been done in the game, with good loot, and mob inhabitants, proving that the devs can certainly accomplish such a thing. Thinking about the similarities between Bastions and a potential Snow Castle: Huge looming structures, spawning in certain biomes, with good loot, and with mobs spawning inside it.

    Maybe It could be made out of blackstone, it fits the theme nicely.

    This would be really cool, I think that in the castle there should be stray, zombie villagers, and a new mob, and the new mob should be like piglins and be a cooperative and somewhat intelligent species.

    it would be great if they added them with an "mountains update", because the mountains won last year's biome vote!

    Awesome idea, but the castles should be as rare as woodland mansions and around the same size as well. And of course the deep dangerous dungeons and towers full of loot. New mobs probably wouldn't be necessary, but the idea of a new structure like this is a great idea and should be implemented in 1.17.

    I really like this idea and would really like to see this in game. This fits very well with my suggestion of the villager kingdom. If you like my idea to a vote would be very appreciated.

    YES! I think we need more structes for specific biomes, it would be very cool.

    I would love this feature. We really need more strange random structures in minecraft. Tired of seeing the same village, dungeon, temples, etc. We haven't had a new natural building structure for a long time.

    There could be spawners in the dungeon below that you fight your way past to a treasure at the end

    that's a good idea. in my opinion there should be non-abandoned versions where illusionists can spawn

    I think they should be rare like mansions and should have traps like a jungle temple and the size of piglin bastions.  A dungeon with spawners of skeletons, zombies and spiders all in one area.

     

    Perhaps also a new mob unique to the area.  Maybe a new type of pillager.

    Yes a nice castle to live cause I can't build one but it should be difficult and have everything a castle needs.

    I think if this were to be implemented they should be fairly rare. A sprawling ruin of a castle, as aforementioned, is something that many builders aspire to create and spend many hundreds of hours upon. Although I don't think they should be quite as rare as, say, the woodland mansion, it should be comparable.

    Unfortunately, one major gripe about the woodland mansion is that it is pretty optional, and doesn't really incentivize players to spend an inordinate amount of time reaching such a place. So in regards to loot, the castles should guard important treasure - why else would they have been built? I think it would be extremely interesting if castles were stronghold variants that held an end portal in its basement, a subtle nod to Fallen Kingdom, or perhaps stockpiles of gold, iron, or diamond blocks would suffice as reward enough.

    I think that, for a mountain castle, it could also be the opportunity to add interesting mobs and mechanics exclusive to the castle area. Perhaps the guard towers could be stationed with strays? Perhaps frozen zombies, or trolls could defend the castle from exterior invaders. Would ballistae be out of play? Maybe stone golems could guard the castle perimeter, similar to how Hogwarts was defended by its army of stone knights, or how the ancient Chinese built mausoleums of terracotta warriors to protect their dead emperor.

    This is such a cool idea! They could add this in the mountain biome vote update!And yes I know this is old.

    finally something that's, not game-changing and stupid this is a great idea

    Maybe this can also help explain why they are called the stray? Like, they spawn outside the castle because they strayed from society and have died from the cold, vengeful of anyone who is warm and safe behind their walls.

    I am 100% for the addition of structures in general, which I believe add a level of history and immersiveness to a lonely and abandoned world. Given that there are now broken nether portals, there is more than enough evidence that creatures existed once who would have been capable of creating a castle, and I would love to see this as a feature.

    Snow biomes need attention and there should be a higher rate of mob spawning, maybe mob spawners and evil snow golem guards. There could also be sets of armor in the halls. Players would love to renovate the castle and have multiple mob spawners in one place. =GREAT IDEA=
