    The new mountains look stunning so far! One small problem I've noticed with the generation is that there are sometimes these weird 90 degree corners at the bases, but aside from that, the generation is excellent.

    In terms of content though, there could be more. In a recent video on Minecraft's YouTube channel, it was stated that the team tries to balance out the "journey" and "reward" features. While the mountains themselves serve as both excellent journey and reward features, they honestly don't serve much of a purpose for those who are not interested in building on or near them. This could be fixed by adding some unique blocks or items, or even a structure. The goat may end up serving an interesting purpose, but I don't think it's quite enough. There needs to be a good reason to keep returning to the mountains.

    Finally, I think the mountains don't generate as frequently as they should. As great as they look so far, they once again don't offer up much in terms of rewards and aren't worth spending long periods of time searching for if you don't want to live near them. They serve as excellent backgrounds/backdrops though, and I think it would be a waste to not take advantage of that by making them generate somewhat more frequently.

    I have a burning hatred for the old extreme hills biome, they always ruin an otherwise pretty view and the generation is so unattractive, please either make them much rarer and the new mountains much more common and update the extreme hills to look better, or just get rid of the extreme hills entirely; If I am being blunt, I don't really see a point in keeping the extreme hills around any longer.

    there should be a reward for reaching the mountain summits or a reason the go there at all, maybe a rare structure? i know emeralds spawn there to but lets be honest no one really mines for emeralds they are way easier to get at villages

    i know it wont happen as it lost the vote but i still think the iceologer should've been part if this update anyway, the mountains have the very small danger of a goat. all biomes have a risk and mountains should too, maybe strong winds that can blow the player off or 2 block deep powdered snow (and more common). my point is, if i want i can just walk there, day or night, it needs something that can be a danger. (this is in addition to the other feedback i made on the mountains)

    I think there should be ravines in the new mountains. They don't have to go as deep as the current ravines - maybe only 10-20 blocks deep. I think they should come in two varieties - open/empty and snow-filled. The snow-filled ravines would be full of powder snow.

    I'd also like to see a rolling hills biome that is basically the same as a plains, but with rounded hills going up to a height of about Y80-90.

    In tropical places, the snow line on mountains is a lot higher because it is so much warmer. So if mountains generate in jungle biomes, instead of generating with Snowy Slopes, it could generate with mountainous rainforest or a tepui (tabletop mountain) sub-biome.

    Assorted Feedback-

    - Overall they look amazing. Some oddities when generating next to curtain biomes.

    - Clouds feel very low now.

    - Powdered Snow could have some deeper patches. Snowdrifts?

    - Mountain Ranges could stand to be bigger or more common.

    - The old hills are too common. They could use a rework.

    - I would like a Volcanic variant.

    It would be nice if the Mountains were more common.

    Heres a short idea: If your in trouble i.e. it's night and your stuck in powder snow, make it feel less like,

    "[person 1] I'm stuck in the mountains! [person 2]Ok, I'll go walk up from the trees to the top and get you."

    and more like,

    "[person 1] I'm stuck on the mountain, please save me! [person 2] Ok, how far up the mountain are you? And which mountain? And how high up? And did you leave a trail for me to safely get to you? I'm way down in the forest of the foothills; if your at the top I can't save you even if I pillar to you up the cliffs!"

    THE NEW MOUNTAINS ARE GORGEOUS! THANK YOU DEVS!

    Except, I feel there should be one thing on the mountains that make it unique. I feel that I probably would not need goat horns or buckets of powdered snow. But there are a couple things I think would be nice.

    1. Yeti, Hides some nice treasure.

    2. Raising cloud height.

    3. Maybe Huckleberries or blueberries.

    4. A new tree type.

    5. Ice caverns.

    Even just one of these things would be amazing.

    There really is no other use for the current clouds than to make the sky look less like a void. As such it would be annoying to have your builds be in the traffic route of the clouds. Raise the clouds 30 or 40 blocks above the build limit, please.

    Can you add a way to automatically smelt ores with your pickaxe. There is flame and fire aspect on weapons and they cook things, why not pickaxes and other tools.

    So the mountains are cool, but irl mountains are usually part of a chain, and something like an extended chain of meadows and hills with taller ones scattered in would be a cool way to find more mountains reliably and look epic

    I kind of feel like powdered snow could be a bit more dangerous. It takes forever to freeze, and people could just mine their way out of it. There should be slopes that generate with like 20 blocks deep pits of powdered snow, so that unless people wear leather it actually poses a threat.

    I love them! I haven't completely braved them in normal survival,but I turned myself to survival at the bottom and climbed to the top. But I think that the mountains should be even higher! I would want the mountains to be a true obstacle! The one I climbed was about to 175 blocks I think. But I think they should go to 225-250! That would make mountains the true challenge!

    I like the rarety of the new mountain biomes, though they are a bit hard to find, I think being able to trade "mountain explorers map" like the woodland mansions or ocean monuments would keep the world generation the same and make finding a mountain range possible in any world. Overall though great job!

    I'd love to have blizzards and maybe even wind up there, giving leather armor more use.

    Realistic mountains are great, and much appreciated. However, if possible, it would be great if the new mountain biomes could replace the existing mountain biomes. It would also make more sense, and help with smoother transitions for older worlds.

    Buzzy bees trailer mountain generation needs to be added. The ones in the beta start to look the same and they don’t form mountain ranges

    I think they may be a bit too tremendous. Would be nice if they were a bit less extreme mainly at the bottom but also more common. Where I live in Slovakia we have quite a few mountain lakes or tarns as google translate translated it as and I would like to see them in the game. And lastly they really should form mountain ranges and they currently don´t.

    Mountains need more difficulty, it's more difficult due to the snow however there should be specific mobs for the experience to be more unique. ICEOLOGERS NEED TO BE BACK!!!

    I'm not entirely sure on the large mountains, but the generation of the entire landscape is way too hilly and it feels very chaotic. Most large flat plains biomes that people could find to build in are near impossible to find, or too small and covered over by other biomes. Feels like a weird hybrid of normal + beta minecraft generation, which wouldn't be bad if the verticality of the landscape at some points was normal, and also for the fact that so many more biomes have been added since beta. If people want chaos they should have to explore for it, as this entices exploration.

    Ein neues Dorf in den Bergen wäre richtig geil, sowas wie das Dorf im Winter Biom doch etwas auf die steile Umgebung angepasst, wie auch ein neuer Job der Dorfbewohner das die in Mienen in der Berglandschaft Arbeiten denn irgend wie müssten sie ja auch an die Smaragde ran kommen. Die würden dann mit irgendetwas wie spezielle steine oder sonst etwas Handel betreiben da müsste man sich noch genaueres überlegen. wem diese Idee gefällt kann gerne ein like dalassen und Verbesserungen in die Kommentare schreiben.

    A new village in the mountains would be really cool, something like the village in winter Biom adapted a bit to the steep surroundings, as well as a new job of the villagers who work in Mine in the mountain landscape, because how would they have to get to the emeralds. They would then do something like special stones or something else trade there would have to think more carefully. who likes this idea can leave a like and write improvements in the comments?

    The new mountains look amazing. I had an idea for more of a structure than a biome, I propose the idea of a frozen waterfall (like the ones you in ice climbing parks). And a new tool to allow the player to climb these ice walls.
