    Yeah, but it can be added as an extension to the /locate command

    like: /locate <biome> 

    and it can be added to the /tp command as well, like: /tp @s biome <biome>

    This could be of help to anyone attempting to create a roleplay series on Youtuber or sever, so i think it's a good idea.

     

    Also if used in a single biome world, [just [insert biome] I think that be a bit funny

    So people are talking about /locate variants and:

     

    /locate biome <biome>

    returns the center coordinate of the biome.

    ex. /locate biome mushroom_fields returns 62362 ~ -13764

     

    /locate structure <structure>

    works as /locate does currently

    ex. /locate structure Village returns 102 ~ -944

     

    /locate player <username>

    returns an error (player not found) or coordinates of the player accompanied with the biome.

    ex. /locate player RandomPlayer returns 0 65 0 in Nether

     

    /locate entity <entity>

    returns an error (no entities found) or coordinates of the nearest entity that fits the selector. You can also use UUIDs in the command. You must limit your @e selector to 1.

    ex. /locate entity @e[type=horse,limit=1] returns Horse at -80 ~ 67

     

    /locate block <type of block>

    returns the coordinates of the nearest block specified.

    ex. /locate block diamond_ore returns -65, 11, 13

     

    Also, I think /locate structure should follow a more file-oriented format, like this: /locate structure minecraft:village instead of this: /locate structure Village

    Yes. I have yet to find a Bamboo Forest Biome so this would be great because then I would be able to find one without spending a half hour flying around my world.

    Great Idea! I was about to write the same suggestion but you appeared on "similar posts"!

    It could be just /locate with all the biomes added, for example /Locate Bamboo_jungle

    Maybe change the current /locate command to be 

    /locate structure <structureName> - to locate structures, just like you can at the moment

    /locate biome <biomeName> - to locate biomes

    I agree.  Mesas are my favorite biome, and I have not seen one since my last world on my Mac, which hasn't had Minecraft since at most a week after 1.8 came out.  I haven't seen one since.  I guess another option would be to balance the spawn rates of biomes, particularly oceans and their variants.  I have noticed that there are an excessive number of taigas, extreme hills, ordinary forests, and oceans.  I would say that maybe a mesa for every 2-3 deserts, a mega taiga for every 2-3 normal taigas, and a mushroom isle for every 2-3 swamps.  Either way, a biome locator command would still be excellent.

    A great convenience for those who want to do creative experiments in specific biomes, or just want to find a biome to play with a new feature found there!

    I do agree that it should just be added to the current  /locate command.

    I like to build and this would be so helpful for so many of the builds I would like to do

    I fully support this!
    The / biomlocate command should be! (Полностью это поддерживаю!
    Команда /biomlocate должна быть!)

    I was just about to post this. They either need to add this command or differentiate between types of temples. Finding a jungle is impossible even is creative.

    I support this idea as it would make things like spawning Custom Mobs and Custom Structures a million times easier!

    Idea for full syntax:

    /locate {Who/Where Syntax (@s, 100, 64, -350)} structure/biome/player {minecraft: list of 
    things}

    The Who/Where Syntax allows you to find the nearest _ where you are, but also the nearest one to a specific coord.

    This could be used with command blocks as well, as well as, at the end, an optional, tp {Who Syntax} at the end, which will tp the selected players to the found area.

    I really agree with this, it can be very hard to find the biome you want to work with.
