    Not just tropical islands that spawn in the new the warm oceans, but maybe tropical beaches, too. Having a beach on a warm ocean with tropical fish swimming around and NOT having palm trees there seems so weird.

    To be honest this should really be a thing. Perhaps white sandy beaches too? We already have the warm water biomes which have the perfect hue of water for this.

    Palm trees have been officially announced; I reckon they will put tropical islands in the game. At least small ones.

    I like this idea. There could also be a variety of new tropical reptiles like iguanas, chameleons and anacondas. The iguanas could be able to walk on magma blocks. The chameleons will stick they're toungs to eat some tropical insectsand change color . And the anaconda could coil up mobs like pigs and the player and tighten, suffocating them. Tropical birds may include toucans, flamingos and a new tropical birds mob. Parrots would also spawn too. The insects could have cicadas, Hercules beetles, mantis, mosquitos, and butterflies. Cicadas will make loud noises the Hercules beetles will pinch when you get too close. The mantis will chill near the flowers and attack when you get too close to its flower. And the butterflies will come in different colours and patterns and will be cool. Crabs and Hermit crabs could spawn too. Maybe as well some rays could be spotted swimming around. Shells will be found and can be traded to collectors in a local village. Slothe will be a cute addition barley moving and laying onot tree branches. This has been a very long post but I have one more thing to add. Tiki and blow darts. The tiki people are an aggressive tribe with hunters that roam the night. The only way to sneak in there stilted huts is to put on a tiki mask and blend in. They have valuable treasures to collect so take the challer get if you dare. They attack with blow darts. Wich are like bows but the fire instantly but take a few seconds to recharge. That is everything I have to share for this comment and I hope this gets added.

    Yeah I was thinking something like a Hawaiian island perhaps they could have a chance of generating native villages on them and with the addition of volcanoes and coconut crabs that eat the coconuts it could be the perfect island

    they should have unburried treasure chests on the shore so if you have a treasure map then you have a chance to be lead to an island

    They can show up in the warm ocean biomes, have the waters like those in the coral reefs/maybe add some small reefs near the islands, and coconuts= cocoa beans but maybe a rounder shape. As for palm trees, I created some on my single player that works nicely but I think you guys can do better. I used stripped birch tiered at an angle and then made "fronds" by tiering birch leaves like a palm tree. It would be cool if a tree could just grow like that instead of me spending a good 30mins making one. For authenticity mix in some jungle trees and parrots. Maybe add some orchids to grow on these islands besides in the swamps, maybe different colored orchids? Turtles and dolphins for sure. Chickens and pigs. (no horses or cows unless its a big island) The islander villagers can be the swamp villagers but re-colored/textured for example the leaf on their head could be a big flower instead. Make it cute for sure. I think this would be an awesome biome to include.

    Perhaps coconuts could be used like buckets, so you can catch fish early game. I would suggest hermit crabs that drop nautilus shells, I think this would be great for water builders who need conduits.

    As Minecraft Earth is ending, Tropical Slime could spawn there.

    Yes, I actually had an idea for Tropical Islands already in a Beach and Boats update. Type it in the search bar to find it!
