The Pillager Outpost is great; one of the best structures added in a while. But I feel like more could be done with them to make them even better. Here are a few of my ideas.
Author's note: this turned out to be a lot bigger than I had originally anticipated. Hopefully it won't be a problem.
Other similar posts have already brought up the ideas of Ravager stables and Villager prisons, and I strongly agree with these. Would make their goals more apparent and give players a better taste of what raids are like, so as to encourage hesitation to set one off.
Dark Oak Tree farms. These would be simple 4x4 dirt patches surrounded by Dark Oak planks with a single tree growing in the middle, surrounded by saplings. Since Canopy Forests can be somewhat hard to find, this would give players a better chance to get the wood in survival.
Map Huts. These small secondary structures would be about 8x8x5 blocks, and the interior would be reminiscent of the map rooms found in Woodland Mansions. Inside would be two additional Pillagers and a single Vindicator, and a second loot chest could be found in the back with things like maps, paper, wool, and very rarely Woodland Mansion Explorer maps.
Alternative designs when generating in Swamps. These special Outposts would have Cauldrons and Brewing Stands dotting the interiors, Flower Pots with Mushrooms (both varieties) in the windows, and even full Witch Huts added to the list of secondary structures. Witches and their cats would of course spawn here in addition to the Pillagers, making the connection between the two more obvious. The loot chest would also contain various Potion ingredients, including a rare chance of Blaze Rods.
