The Great Beyond
This is the main post for my idea of another dimension.
In order to get to the Great Beyond, you will first have to get some magic beans. The "magic" part comes from a special enchantment you can only find in Witch's Huts on the Overworld. The "beans" could be cocoa beans, or possibly even a new variety of bean that could have other uses. Once the player plants the beans and treats them with care, they will be able to ascend the giant stalk that grows as a result, and reach the Great Beyond.
Once there, they will be greeted to a large expanse of floating islands, with tracts of clouds connecting them all together (don't wear full armor that's made of iron or higher, or you just might fall through). There'd be flying pigmen dressed in white garbs, strumming harps, and a few flying ships to hop onto. You could also delve into one of the caves on the floating islands and mine some exclusive materials (possibly something like rubies and/or crystals?) while being careful to watch out for giant, more powerful spiders descending from the ceiling. The main attraction, though, is the Giant's House, and its bounty of treasure.
The reason I'm proposing this idea is because I believe that it would be a good potentially early-game dimension that isn't super threatening, and could provide room for some more unique ideas that would otherwise have trouble fitting into other parts of the game.
I'm also not saying this should be implemented before either the Nether or the End get some much needed TLC and additional features/structures, I'm merely suggesting a different sort of alternate dimension that could be implemented after the others are taken care of.
