    I really want them to add this, but please make it an option to turn on/off on settings. Some people might not want this and I don't want them to stop playing because of this.

    I my self would really like it. I almost never play minecraft with out a playlist I made on youtube of different biome sounds.
    I just makes such a difference to play with ambient sounds, makes the game seem more alive.

    If you never tried it, just get a video of some nature sounds, like this one "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2G8LAiHSCAs" and play around a bit in a tree biome, it makes such a difference.

    Also for caves, i use this one "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZ2GanJIGbk" the dripping sounds with echo make it so much more immersive.

    I know there are some mods with this, but with every update, mods stop working, 

    I really hope they add this to the game in the next update. Regardless of how much new things they put it, the game always feels dead to me with out any ambient sounds. To me its important that the game feels alive.

    Ditto. I believe that Minecraft just sounds a bit to silent ...  The birds would be a great addition, since us humans are so used to hearing them... Minecraft just doesn’t sound natural without them.

    Maybe they should also add a wind ambiant sound in the void to make it more scarier

    @SpanCarton9158 Excellent ideas! But with biome-specific sounds, I see some difficulty implementing them. The main thing for me is that if a user mines away or completely changes the biome, the sounds should stop, or change accordingly. For instance, if you remove all the grass, trees, and plants from a forest biome to build a giant swimming pool, there should not be cricket noises heard there anymore. So I would add to your idea that these noises must check for a logical source of the sound. Crickets would be easy - just check for a grass block, say.

    Possible sources for some of the biome-specific sounds you mentioned:

    • Crickets - sourced from a grass block in a forest.
    • Insects (like cicadas) - a leaf block in swamp biome.
    • Frogs - grass block or a lily pad, next to water in swamp biomes.
    • Rockfall - stone on a slope in a mountain biome.
    • Ice creaking - large mass of ice (3x3x3) in a biome where water freezes.

    Every noise made in a cave should be more echoey.

    Plz add the background sounds of birds in the forest, subsiding in the evening, but the sounds of owls and crickets appear. And in the swamps the sound of frogs, for example. In each biome, you can add sounds in the settings.

    This feedback is basically, "MAKE THE DYNAMIC SURROUNDINGS MOD VANILLA" - and I believe this would be good for the game... if modders didn't do it better than the official devs ever would.


    WOULD, not COULD. I have no doubts as to Mojang's skill and talent. However, their TIME is so essential, I think it would be better to put it toward other areas and just let the modding community handle this one. This is a cosmetic things; it's especially good for modding. Mechanical stuff is what needs Mojang attention.
