Nether Overhaul Part 1: Shrouded Forest
To start this off, the Nether needs an overhaul because, it hasn't been updated for a while and it's boring when you go there. Why is it? It's because we go for the some old glowstone, nether fortresses, mining quartz ore, and killing wither skeletons for their skulls for the wither. But what if there was more? Let's begin with the Shrouded Forest biome.
To be honest the nether needs more to it and I feel a shrouded forest could have things exclusive to it like a new type of wood, new types of blocks, and new mobs. I'm starting with the wood type as this wood could be charcoal black in color, this would also be a version of the wood from the Overworld but only it doesn't burn when near fire/lava. With it we can make tools exclusive to other dimensions such as the end, only the Overworld is an exception. I call this wood the "burning cypress" as it's shape is a cypress or acacia tree. The logs can be used to make planks and be used to making a different version of the crafting table that can craft nether items, such as nether brick. We can also make doors, stairs, fences, pressure plates, buttons, and slabs with it making it more decorative. That's all I got for the burning cypress tree for now.
Let's move onto the blocks I want to mention, maybe there can be a nether variation of grass and grass blocks being charcoal purple in color and functions the same way as grass in the Overworld does. The new wither roses can spawn here along with another flower dubbed the "burning blossom" which burns you if you walk into it in survival or hardcore mode. The netherrack in this biome should be alot darker in color being a dark grey color and should seperate from netherrack and being dubbed "shrouded netherrack". Shrouded Netherrack has the the same functionality normal netherrack has and can be smelter into nether bricks to make a nether brick block. Soul sand in this biome can generate in this biome as well however, it's the normal soul sand we see everyday. That's all I got for the new blocks generated in this biome.
Moving onto the mobs that spawn here and the new mobs as well. First I want to mention the mobs that are already added to spawn here. Wither skeletons should spawn here to fit the theme of the biome as well as endermen however, they can spawn a little bit more commonly. Now I will the mention the new mobs that spawn here. A version of the zombie pigman should spawn here rather than being a zombie, maybe a spiritual version the pigman that was supposed to be added a while ago but never made it into the game. Another mob should be a more demonic version of the Ghast that can shoot fireballs faster, and can fly much as well making it formidable. In color it should look like a normal Ghast but much darker in color being a pitch black color. Another mob found here is the hellhound which is a nether version of the wolf which has the functionality of a normal wolf but much more hostile. This wolf is tamable however if you get too close it will attack you as it will notice you. Being at least 3 blocks away will make stay neutral and if tamed it will act passive towards you regardless.
These are my ideas on this new biome because as I said, the Nether needs an overhaul as it is a bit boring to go there, and all you would do is mine quartz ore, get glowstone, find nether fortresses, and kill wither skeletons for their skulls for the wither.
