This is a conceptual method for adding warrior-like living pigmen to the game. To see my feedback post for the mob itself, click on the link below.
Rather than make a village structure variant for a "pigman villager" mob, I went for something different. Here they could be a nomadic, wool-and-log tent camp. The camp could generate in plains, tundras, mesas, jungles, or savannas. The residing pigmen would be armed with weapons, ready to attack any hostiles, and open for an alliance with the player if certain requirements or achievements are met. Now for the structures that generate in this camp (this list is liable to change):
- Standard Tent: a small tent with one doorway, which is the most common of the generated structures of the camp. These don't have anything inside besides a coarse dirt floor, and are mainly shelters for the pigmen.
- Supply Tent: this is a longer, perfectly triangular tent that is more open-spaced and usually has two chests full of food, and a pile of either melons or pumpkins.
- Pole-leashed Pigs and Firepits: these two have a circular ground of coarse dirt and generate between tents as a meeting point, similar to those in the villages. The leashed pigs are like the pigmen's kin, pets, or companions.
- "Scare-Totems": the pumpkin-headed fence posts and banners are like a cross between a scarecrow and a totem pole, and are used by the pigmen to warn or intimidate hostiles from coming any closer to their camp. They can generate with the fence arms in different poses: up, down, or forward (like zombie arms). They can also have a rare chance to generate with a lit jack o'lantern for a head.
- Fence-Torches: generated adjacent to the camp structures' connected paths for enough light at night.
- Chieftain's Tent: every camp will generate with one of these bulkier tents for its chieftain pigman. The interior has banner drapery, a decorative carpet, two torches on fence posts, and a stair seat shouldered by two chests full of valuable loot. The chieftain's chest loot could include gold ingots or nuggets, other ores, or some mob heads as trophies of some skirmish between the pigmen and some monsters.
Along with a structure for the living pigman's implementation, the zombie pigmen could use a camp of their own to stay updated. The structures here would be made of red nether brick to distinguish them from nether fortresses, and they would be in a more broken, untended state than the living pigmen's shelters, and some may contain a chest or two full of loot (kind of similar to underwater ruins). However, there could be one fully intact structure in the zombie pigmen's camp: a single-room cross of a tomb and a dungeon, where the zombie variant of the chieftain resides as a mini-boss. It could have a floor of soul sand 1 block below ground, and a central row of nether brick shaped like a coffin.
