    Would be great for mapping or experimenting with worlds

    You know a good biome could be a FLAT BOIME

    This would be super helpful to have in world building

    It can be better if it uses [x1] [y1] [z1] [x2] [y2] [z2] (like /fill command) to change the biome of a selected area

    Well the exact code of the command may need some work (as a biome exists per chunk and not block) just from the reaction of some map makers, this is a needed addition

    The mechanics could go in at least 2 different directions:

    /setbiome <center coordinates> <radius> <biome>

    or

    /setbiome <coords of one corner> <coords of the opposite corner> <biome>

     

    or both could be merge into one like this:

    /setbiome cylinder <center coordinates> <radius> <biome>

    /setbiome cuboid <1st coordinates> <2nd coordinates> <biome>

    Cylinder and cuboid mean that you shouldn't specify y coordinates, just x and z, because the biome extends to world height and down to void.

    Yeah, I also think this is a great idea for map makers and you don't need to use programs and tools out there like: WorldEdit, MCEdit, WorldPainter, BiomePainter etc.

    while probably difficult to implement, it would be really useful (also the y-axis would be useless in syntax unless underground biomes are added, and it still may be useless)

    /setbiome <x1> <z1> <x2> <z2> <biome>

    Ex: /setbiome 19 19 56 78 minecraft:modified_gravelly_mountains

    I have an idea:
    /biome command
    /biome locate [biome] locates a biome
    /biome set [biome] sets the chunk you're in to a biome
    /biome fill x1 z1 x2 z2 [biome] sets an area to a biome

    /biome radius [radius] [biome] sets a radius to a biome

    These are not my ideas, they're in this category or in the comments, but this command could combine them all :) I might add some additional ideas someone suggests.

    Good for mapmakers to control biome order and make maps more convincing. Also good for testing new mob spawn or other mechanics to do with a specific biome without having to move.

    Oh, yes, absolutely add this to both Java and Bedrock. I would use it in many places.

    /fill biome <TYPE>

    YES

    I think it should be /fillbiome X Y Z X2 Y2 Z2 {BiomeID;Swamp}

     

    And another on being /setbiome 15 {BiomeID;Swamp}

     

    I say this because setbiome would have a radius based on the number and the fill biome would make it more boxy.

    It is still a good idea and whoever is scrolling down please vote

    Could be like: 

    /biome >cords< >biome<

    This one would crash a lot of phones, because it needs a lot of memory and process

    With the Announcement of the nether update and (I heard this, but I'm not sure where this came from) it would suppoort 3D biomes, it's possible this command would come in that update as it would make sense to add it after they change how biomes are processed sense it would effect the command.

    This would be extremely useful in superflat worlds

    Ooooh yes I’d love this. Because I want to make a map with islands in the sky of varying different biomes, and it is currently impossible to do so as biomes are so big, and I want these islands right next to each other, close enough to build a bridge less than 20 blocks across from one to another. When you cross a border, it’s like you’re stepping into a new realm. Epic!

    Only a specific chunk or 30 by 30 land piece, also you should be able to create a /set ~ ~ ~  ~ ~ ~ village
