Disclaimer: I realize this would be a radical, and possibly, unwanted change. I ask you to read through the suggestion all the way and consider it.
There are currently four stone variants (stone, andesite, granite, and diorite) as well as sandstone, red sandstone, and terracotta. The main purpose of the suggestion is to vary what the majority of stone is, depending on the biome. That may have been kind of confusing. Let me reiterate:
In a desert in normal Minecraft, there's a thin layer of sandstone, then regular stone. Not anymore! All the way to the bottom, the default stone is sandstone. In Mesas, the default is red sandstone. But what about the real stone variants, and the rest of the biomes? Well, I've proposed this:
- Plains, plains forest, birch forest, and mountain variants: Stone
- Jungles, jungle variants, dark oak forest, dark oak variants: Granite
- Taiga, mega taiga, taiga mountains, cold oceans: Andesite
- Snowy plains, snowy taiga, frozen oceans: Diorite
- Warm oceans: Sandstone
In all recipes made using cobblestone, cobblestone can be substituted with the stone variants and the sandstones. Need a stone pickaxe or a furnace early game, and only have granite? Boom, you can use granite. Need stone to make smooth stone, but don't have any cobble to smelt? Smelt some diorite (Note: this recipe doesn't include sandstones).
This could come off as divisive, but I think it could work well and be interesting. Please provide feedback on my feedback!
