New Nether Biome: Irradiated Barrens
This new biome is as rare as basalt deltas and they are the remnants of a possible radiation accident. in this biome you will be greeted by a dark green fog, surrounded by falling black particles of radiation fallout, along with the ambience of a Geiger counter. This large flat cavern of a biome will sport 2 new stones, Rhyolite that generate in high concentrations, and Ionstone that generate in large patches. Since no glow stone will generate in this biome, the only sources of light will come from patches of lava and new radioactive glowing mushrooms and roots, along with a new loot item called radium/glow crystals that generate in large spikes. A new mob will also exclusively spawn here too called the Contaminated zombie that can give you poison or a new Radiation sickness status effect when you get too close to them. This biome will also exclusively generate a new structure too called the collapsed reactor which could hint to lore on the reason why this biome exists. This new structure can also host a new loot block, the famous nether reactor core which would be an amazing way to bring back and reimagine this nostalgic block.
