What do you think of this idea for a new biome:
The Mediterranean biome
It would be a warm biome and there would be 2 variants: plains and mountains, which would make it the first warm mountain biome in minecraft. I thought of this features: Olive/cork trees: a new kind of tree that would be very small, around 3-4 blocks tall. It would obviously have a new kind of wood, but here is where the interesting part comes in: if you strip the log, you will get cork (I’ll talk about that later on). The leaves will also have a high chance to drop olives. Cork: This could be used as a “pin-up board”. When you place it somewhere it would have a corklike texture, but when you right-click it whit a block, it will get the texture of that block. So it’s basically a wallpaper. Olives: It can be used as food, but that’s not the main use, because there’s enough food in Minecraft. My idea is that you can craft it into olive oil. If you grease some kind of food with olive oil and you put it greased in a furnace it would be a better food when you eat it. Marble: apart from the trees, here’s my other main idea: you can find marble when you mine in the Mediterranean mountains. It would be a block used for decoration and it would look a bit like quartz, but more broken up. It would also come in different colours and you can also dye it yourself. Lizards: This will be a very fast and small mob. If you kill it you’ll get its skin. When you’ve got 4 skins, you can combine them in a crafting table to get lizard shoes, which will allow you to walk faster, like the turtle helmet makes you breathe longer.
Hope you like it!
