    Yes! Also, it would be cool to have iron armour sets on armour stands in some places. They could have varied durability, and sometimes have curses.

    Maybe you could pair this with the Red Dragon post and make it all one feature?

    It would be great if some type of mob lived in those castles.

    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.

    I'd love that!! There isn't much in snow biomes right now, which is sad because I love snow but there isn't much reason to go there. This would be really cool to see!

    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.

    They could be similar to the mounds of mossy cobblestone found in taiga biomes, but bigger, and maybe a different “frozen” variant of the block. They could also be structured sorta like ocean ruins, and you could find treasure in there. 

    With the new archeological feature, I’d love for you to be able to find treasure in these in the gravel.

    Great idea! Mountains and snow biomes need a little spice to them, and this would work great in the Caves & Cliffs update.

    In the dungeons there could be redstone dust bits on the floor (Blood?)

     

    Possible Loot:

    Stone swords, chains, iron ingots

     

    Maybe a well in a courtyard with a chain and cauldron underneath?

    Chainmeal armor would be a good loot thing in the castles since there are few ways to get this

    This would be awesome. It would also open up the opportunity for some sort of icy bad guys like evil snow men (just a random example). You could also have an ice boss.

    I think this would be good as long as it isn't too "mod-like."

    I absolutely love playing modded Minecraft, and I also enjoy mods like Rogue-Like Dungeons.  These add very elaborate and deep dungeons with structures that are fun to explore.  They add custom spawners which get more and more difficult as you go deeper.  The problem though is that they never fit in with vanilla, because the level of depth that is found in those is more than that of vanilla structures.  At the same time it doesn't fit in because there isn't enough depth.  

    Overall, this is an amazing idea that I think the team should accept and work on.  Things to look out for and experiment with are size and depth, both on the y-axis and the depth of detail in the castle.  I think this would be great as maybe another large structure or maybe a mountain village.  It could be the mountain equivalent of the Bastion or Dark Oak Mansion.  Avoid making it too similar to those though, and as usual be careful with it, try to strike the same balance you found with the Bastions and Abandoned portals, where they don't feel modded and feel natural.

    I am so surprised that this idea has been neglected for so long! It is a very good idea!

    I would say this is a perfect time to add the iceologer as well as a frozen zombie, and an ice wizard sort of thing.

    YES! I ALWAYS WANTED NATURAL CASTLES IN MINECRAFT! The snowy biome is so bland so this would make snowy biomes more FUN! I hope that your suggestion gets added into Minecraft 1.17!

    Una fortaleza de en la montaña que tenga golems pero congelados y con pedaos de hielo sobre saliendo y haya un minii jefe y si lo matas que te de un cristal para una baston con el que dipares proyectiles y congeles a lo que le dite por 5 segundos o menos

    It would especially be good for the 1.17 update with the mountain part of the update.

    greatest idea i love this. I absolutely can't stand exploring this biome. a castle with some crown or relec. would be amazing. maybe adding a way to have a type of relec that lets you make villager guards? or this could be the best way to add the RED DRAGON. maybe?

    I agree Snow biomes only have igloos to their name and most of the igloos have no use.

    maybe they could hold a wizard/warlock inside and you can fight or trade with them.
