    This should be included with its own update like oasis, the palm trees, maybe coconuts and wild flowers. Maybe this "Oasis" would be one of many things in that update.

    Maybe there could be a new type of wandering trader that only spawns in a oasis, and they trade things like palm wood, fish, sand/sandstone

    I tried making an artificial one in Minecraft Earth. It turned out well, but if this was to be added, I can't wait!

    Honestly I would love an Oasis since the desert is so dry...

    acho que essa idéia iria ajudar muito, principalmente se tiver aldeias perto de oásis, e outra forma de se encontrar o oásis seria um novo mob como o camelô, pois os camelôs podem sentir cheiro de água a quilômetros de distância na vida real e na natureza, e também colocar algumas palmeiras.

    It would not have the color of trees in the desert right?

    this could even include Oasis villages with a unique design to them :)

    I feel like this is a good idea but it's kinda useless right now in the game. But if Mojang was to add heat and maybe a water feature, deserts would be a lot harder while also making the oasis very useful. Also considering the pretty good loot you get from villages and temples I would say this is a fair trade. I have other ideas on how this could work but I won't bore you guys reading this.

    Maybe it could be a structure that only spawns in deserts?

    I agree, the desert is too boring. Palm trees and oasis would be great! A unique hostile mob such as scorpions at night would make Bane of Arthropods more useful, too.

    I think this is a great idea! Maybe there could be villages in the oases since it would have all the stuff needed for a village. It would be very cool to have an oasis village.

    I like the bamboo with oasis idea, but I think minecraft is fine without palms, instead they could use the bush/tree plants in the lush caves, and there would be a wandering trader there.

    Maybe Desert Wells should spawn at the center of Oasises.

    It’d be cool if they were centered around a rare desert pool of water, but how large are they? They’d probably be relatively rare, rare enough that they’re not everywhere. Maybe they’d be like jungles, and have some saplings around their edges? Animals would also probably spawn here, and maybe villages would turn up in/next to them, depending on how big they are.

    I think it would be cool if the oasis had a chance of generating with a bazaar or inn. It would make sense for travelers and traders to use an oasis as a hub between villages.

    Oases in the desert could simply replace the lakes that dot the landscape. Here is an opportunity to add more flora that can give players builds a more exotic look, that can be planted on beaches and jungles to enhance your bases there. They simply need to give splashes of life in the desert, no need for it to provide an inherent benefit to the player. I think in many players minds, they are imagining a Date Palm, wrt Oases, which have this kind of pineapple looking topper. They would grow in the general area of a lake. Around the trees you could have Saw Palmettos, huge fans of pointy leaves. Very tropical and would look great for terraforming. Alternatively, agave or aloe vera. I think pointy is what we're after lol. These could be used for healing. Finally, we absolutely 100% need dune grass, a grass plantable in sand. Again, very useful for builds and terraforming. I am desperate for sand grass, I will make entire builds around glitched out grass on sand. Check out my Desert Flora suggestion for the details. Any grass blocks in an oasis should be a verdant green color, with a gradient to normal desert coloring. Finding a large Oasis and building there would give players some leeway with the color scheme when terraforming. I will also suggest a unique flower, every biome should have one IMO. Perhaps a purple/yellow Verbena. Purple, yellow, pink, green and earth tones, red terracotta/sandstone fit the desert in my mind. Endless possibilities.

    Some other considerations: the potential palm tree could offer us an interesting departure from trees with full blocks for leaves (2D like a 2 tall Fern), or, hear me out here, non full block trunks. Think a cactus or chorus plant. They should NOT be curved but stand up straight. I think for palm wood we can get that from a proper coconut palm tree in a jungle or new beach biome. With the Date Palm, you can shear the leaves, and get a kind of thatching, as a block or a mat. And also some dates. Date Palms can randomly grow 1 to 8 blocks tall naturally, being bonemealed indefinitely for larger heights. Granular control for builders is always appreciated :)

    Me gusta, que quiten los rios o los hagan mas raros en los desiertos, y que tambien los desiertos sean uno de los biomas intermedio en encontrar, y tambien uno de los mas grandes.

    I was going to post this. I thought it would have a unique palm tree with wood and stripped variants. The water in the biome could be very bright blue, even lighter than the water above coral reefs. Crabs and lizards that could sneak up behind you and steal your valuables. That would be hilarious if a crab came up behind you, pinched you and picked up your Sharpness 5 netherite sword and used it on you. There should also be an ocean biome like this with a new underwater sand variant that spawns on the bottom of the ocean and on beaches called wave eroded sand. My texture on my Addon for Wave-eroded sand is just recolored soul soil. Please see this Mojang!

    Me and my friends actually made an oasis in creative as part of our desert town, and we all said, ”man wouldnt it be super cool if there was an oasis biome”. I just think it would be SO COOL if that were to be the case. It could have like different colors of water, maybe a few different animals, like maybe a meerkat for the desert? Or a vulture.
