Now that Minecraft's oceans are far from the blandness of squid and nothing, there's something else that needs to be fixed: the squids themselves.
Fish variants, dolphins, turtles...all of the new ocean mobs have specified places and biomes to spawn in the water. But squids are still spawning everywhere! They're even found spawning in village wells (what's up with that?) This is another one of the game's classic features, but all due to fill the previous famine of water features before update 1.13.
Squids should have a lower spawn rate, and even have it based on biomes, with oceans being the highest. Here's some possible ranges listed from least rare to most rare for squids spawning that could be integrated (land biomes listed refer to rivers and lakes within those biomes):
- Oceans (current ingame spawn rate) - Lakes - Rivers (lowest)
- Frozen Ocean (highest spawn rate) - Other Ocean Waters - Snowy Biomes - Swamps & Jungles - Grasslands/Forests
- Inland waters squids should not spawn in: Deserts/Mesas - Plain/Mega Taigas - Extreme Hills/Mountains - Savannas
