    Great idea 👍

    How about adding the maps to the bartering loot table? Seems more appropriate to get it in the Nether

    Good idea. Might also recommend just a unique way that helps find these nether structures

    Agreed. If maps in the Nether become functional, they should show Nether biomes. Since maps cannot calculate the Nether's terrain, they should at least tell you which biomes are nearby. I also agree with ProCheetah91163 that maps to fortresses and bastions be added to piglin bartering.

    Map in nether is useless as you can see nothing, also you cannot use compass too.
    • If you use a map/locater on a nether what you will see is the top of the nether.

    Explorer maps can still tell the location of biomes, like rivers, oceans, and swamps. Also you can use lodestone compasses in the Nether. It shouldn’t be too hard to implement different colored overlays for different Nether biomes.

    Nether maps would be really handy in with the new nether biomes. They could be made out of some strange nether materials.

    I know rendering it from top down wouldn't work because of the ceiling, what if instead the biomes had indicative color and the shade from light to dark represented the ratio of air to solid.

    I think adding a Lodestone to this structures will be a more fitting thing and the compasses coneccted to this Lodestones would be barted by piglins. This would make it different to the overworld but it will still make sense because there´s no paper on the nether and because Lodestones are made of netherite.

    I like this idea, but maybe instead the Villager that provides these would spawn in the Nether, since it makes more sense for a Villager native to the Nether to be able to survive rather than an ordinary Cartographer.

     

    Also, since sugar cane is not native to the Nether and cannot be grown, there would be a lack of paper. I propose that instead said Villager would provide a compass linked to a lodestone, with the lore explaining as such.

    Personally I think you should get nether based maps from bartering with piglins instead of off the cartographer as it means you would need to go to the nether to get the map.

    Another option could be to add lodestones at the center of nether structures (fortresses and bastions), then acquire the corresponding enchanted compass either through bartering or through trading with a cartographer. Each compass would be linked to a certain lodestone, similar to how buried treasure maps link to buried chests. This way you make use of a recently implemented mechanic, and get a "free" lodestone (these things are seriously expensive right now!)

    The structures should have lodestones in them, and piglins should sell a lodestone connected to the nearest fortress. This would be very useful for speedrunning. These should definitely be implemented to fortresses but maybe not bastions
