Revamped Forests and Plants in 1.19
1.19, the Wild Update may be one of my favorites looking updates so far. So why not improve other forest biomes besides the swamp and birch forest (not including future updates which include losers of past biome votes) and add more to make these biomes and plant life feel more immersive. For example, you could add more diverse plant life for each biome rather than just grass, ferns, and flowers. Some new plants you could add are, flowering lily pads, cattails for swamps and rivers, shrubs / bushes for forest biomes, new types of trees such as willow and maple, maybe a unique type of vine that grows from the bottom of leaves, etc. and it would make sense to have these plants grow more abundantly in clearings in the forest where they can receive more sunlight. Another way to improve diversity is to improve the trees, a way you could do this is by making the trees taller and adding more variety to the leaf generation, as well as maybe branches and roots, you could also add a large variant of the oak or birch tree. Maybe you can add dead or fallen trees made of stripped wood, this would be more realistic, or possibly add seasons for certain biomes along with falling leaves (you could turn these off or turn down the distance they visibly generate to prevent lag), and maybe even ambient sounds for each biome. With all being said, there are countless possibilities to improve upon the wilderness part of the Wild Update, and I hope you take some of my ideas into consideration.
