    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.

    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.

    i think this is a really good idea maybe there could be different sizes and variants?

    Maybe not necessarily an abandoned castle, but I agree that some form of structure should be created that's exclusive to the new mountain biome. Whether or not new mobs would be included in this new structure is something I'd leave for the developers, but loot of some kind can definitely be included as an incentive for players in survival mode to try and climb up the revamped mountain terrain. It would basically be another reason to explore the new mountain biome.

    Ok this is cool, but it can it not be abandoned?? Whenever they add a new structure it's abandon or ruined. I'd much prefer secret piglin hideouts in the overworld near nether portals rather than ruined portals. Or y'know it'd be cool if bastions weren't just remnants, I'd like to see them at there prime. I think it'd be good to have this castle populated by Illagers in the Caves And Cliffs update.

    Buena idea. Castillos en alta colinas en biomas nevados y así su facilidad de encontrarlo se difícil. buena idea estoy de acuerdo.

    Pero también se encuentren criaturas adentro. Y tesoros y muchas curiosidades.

    The castles shouldn't be any larger than desert temples so they can spawn easily. And the castles could be just a tower to a small fortress. The loot would range from armor to weapons and tools to gems to ores. This is a great structure idea and it should be in the game.

    I like this Idea maybe pillagers could sometimes storm these towers as varation to mobs 

    Another thing with this I would suggest is pillagers,illagers.vindicators actively Hunt wraiths and strays

    How about instead of just abandoned castles there's abandoned villages as well.

    These villages could be overgrown will vines, trees and grass.

    Maybe even ruins too that have a new decoration block and a chest with starter game loot like leather armour, stone swords, bread, coal and sticks.

    How about a castle of ice and snow which also have a basement of some sort but is near the ocean and that underwater part has an entrence at the mouth of a cave near underwater ruins patroled by guardians. The inside of the castle are like the dungeons with inhabitants like strays and also design and such as frozen indoor water fountains.

    An idea for a new monster for this construction could be a zombie variant. There are already Strays for Skeletons so why not one for Zombies?

    My Idea would be called Dregar, it would have purple skin and wield a shield and hatchet. Or maybe a waraxe if thats ever in the game.

    I think that durability would have to apply to shields in that they'd lose durability when hit or have axes be able to chop through shields and cause damage. 

    Honestly thats a combat update issue. At the very least a Dregar would wield hatchets and be able to freeze players when hit.

    Ive already built some mountain top citadels in my world out of cobblestone. It would be nice to have these generated naturally.

    Maybe pillagers could live here? With their own unique snowy fur cap? That would look cute :D Also, NO DRAGON EGGS.
    Maybe a ravager or two in the dungeons of the larger castles?

    Great idea! Maybe there could be chests with slowness arrows for an even easier way to get them (I know you get them from strays)

    Yes! The only reason I go in snowy biomes is to find the ice spikes biome. Great idea, but what material should it be made out of? Stone relates too much to a stronghold, and dark oak is like the Woodland Mansion. Maybe a new type of stone block? I'm not sure.

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
