    I would like some more details, other than palm trees, and bamboo, like what would they look like, how big are they, how rare are they, what are there benefits? Doin that would give more detail to your suggestion, and would really make it better.

    Good idea. I think these oasis should spawn near villages, since it would make sense to build a village next to a water source.

    The palm trees should be slightly bigger than oak trees in height, and have a structure comparable with acacia trees, but with different leaf generation. It could also be an opportunity to add bananas.

    Rabbits should be programmed to go to a water source every once in a while. Since the desert lacks water apart from oasis, they gather around the oasis, making it a good place to set up a rabbit farm.

    However, to counter this, I think it could be a good idea to add some sort of predator too, like snakes. Snakes can be spread over different biomes and also have the water searching behaviour. They can hunt the rabbits and are neutral unless provoked or hungry, more or less similar to their natural behaviour.

    So a rabbit rework, a new mob and a new type of tree. Could bring more life into the wastelands that are the deserts.

    Adding oasis always seemed like a neat idea, but I think Minecraft itself is the fundamental flaw of an oasis...

    You see, in naturally generating worlds, biomes are not very much far apart from eachother. Oasis, given that they should have a respectable size in a simultaneously not very big but very common desert biomes would make oasis not feel like much of an occurrence, unless they are super rare. But even then, probably 200/500 block away in any direction there is another biome, which 99.9 percent of the time would feature water, if thats a forest, a savanna, an ocean or an iceberg.

    Also, considering deserts as dull and boring is definitely false. Mind you, in deserts there are the most structures you can find in a single biome, tying only the ocean biomes( if you consider the Buried Treasure one), which are the villages, the temples and the super rare wells. Lets also not forget the super rare Mesa Deserts, which you might consider a new biome, they are still deserts to their core, just very rare at that,  with different blocks and generations.

    Honestly, if you look in other biomes, the desert is one of the least in need of an overhaul in my opinion.

    It would be nice adding oasis specific fish types as item and mob, IDK if kilifish fits but they would be nice, also cichlids would.

    Oasi should have a village around or at least near them, like Alejandro Baars pointed out.

    I think you could add some mango trees and mango+mango juice.

    I had a suggestion that I mentioned to Tanner Pearson (MC Bedrock Dev) when the desert biome was announced.

    I said “What if there’s a sub biome called desert_oasis with a collection of palm trees/water? If it is to be added with a majority vote or later.”

    So rather than an oasis being it’s own biome, it can be a sub-biome called “oasis_desert”. Like currently “bamboo_jungle” in 1.14.

    If you're gonna add oasis, you should remove desert rivers, ponds etc. to make it useful in desert

    I like this idea, however, as you may or may not have heard... Bamboo and Palm trees are currently being made!🎉

    Per me è una buona idea anche perché di solito quando devi oltrepassare un deserto rischi di morire di fame quindi così diventa un pelino più facile

    Desert palms should be date palms, whereas beach palms could be coconut palms.

    Adding prickly pears would be a nice addition for desert edibles. Or even Dragon fruit, although dragon fruit cactus are actually epiphytes that would be better suited in the jungle.
    Agave and Aloe vera would make a nice aesthetic addition. Or could be used for crafting potions.

    You should also add tortoises in them

    Have you ever seen an oasis with tortoises? If yes, send me the pictures!

    Oasis is a great idea. They would be decently rare. Maybe around 6-8 blocks wide and long, 1-4 blocks deep. With grass blocks around it, and palm trees. I don’t think bamboo should be at oasis’s. But, bamboo could spawn in jungle or thick forests?

    An oasis would make the game more realistic! More real world fun.

    I think that the oasis should be rare and if you were to pass one there should be some living animals near it not many but not too little.

    to be fair, adding stuff to the Minecraft biomes like the oasis really does liven things up, this way, we, as Minecraft players, will have more sights to see, more things to do, more creative ideas to give, stuff like that.

    so many things to create, so little time.

    It would allow for desert spawns to allow players wood from trees growing near the oasis, and it would help to 'modernize' the desert biome, which only just indirectly got an update from village & pillage. No extra biomes, no unique mobs, and only an outdated pyramid structure. Oases would be a step towards improving deserts and allow for players to use deserts in survival.

    Good Idea, just I think adding tropical fish in these oasis' would be really cool. Or maybe even camels that come here to drink the water. Just and idea though. :)

    Even some way to get a greener grass in the desert.  If you try to make your own oasis, it will still look like dead grass, rather than the kind of verdant green you'd expect from having water so close.

    I think an oasis should replace the desert well its ugly and has no purpose. Maybe in the oasis you could find treasure under the sand. The loot table could include maps to various structures as well. Sort of like stuff lost by travelers on their way to someplace else. @travelbytrain its confirmed no for this update. Remember at minecon they voted and Taiga was chosen, not deserts

    A lot of biomes have no detail, or very little, it not just the desert. There also needs to be camels and fennec foxes!

    Crocodiles or Hippos would be a fun preditor to add in the oasis. Perhaps not villages around them but ruins with treasure chests, like broken dessert temples or something.

    One of the reasons oases form is due to depressions in the earth. I'm sure I am stating the obvious, but water is deep in the earth. So you find cracks and dips in the desert floor where the ground water has been exposed. When you find plants too, aside from those that are particularly hardy like palm trees, they'll often be in cracks and depressions where the sun can not bare down on them directly. This is at least my basic understanding. Other circumstances can play a role I am sure.

    All this goes to say that if an oasis formed it would be in depressions in the desert where the ground water is exposed and the sun cannot scorch the more frail plants.

    I love the idea. And I hope it gets implemented.

    Maybe most of the oases would have villages around them, as that is true for real life in Africa.
