Minecraft biomes have never been famed for their realism. In all fairness, they don't need to be realistic. With that being said, swamp biomes are notably less diverse than an actual wetland.
A swamp is only a variation of a wetland. In reality, the other variations of a wetland include marshes, bogs, and fens. Now, I don't think these should all be separate biomes, or even sub-biomes in Minecraft, as they're all awfully specific. Also, the naming pattern of most biome variations typically have to do more with elevation. The solution I propose is adding a single Swamp variation to encompass the features of the other wetlands.
The Swamp Flatland may consist of:
- wide waterways
- little to no trees
- cattails (functioning similar to tall grass but in water)
- occasional flowers
Here's an image of how this may look in practice:
Overall, this suggestion further develops the atmosphere of Swamps, as well as adding a more hospitable and pleasant variation. Tell me what you think.
