All these biomes would be awesome. Especially the wild west one, looks AMAZING. Love the editing you did. The ones based on seasons seem kinda of out of place, being based on one season, but who cares they are BEAUTIFUL to you. Awesomeness
To the people making comments on the blossom biome...may I remind you of mushroom biome? Still, I feel like it should only be fast growth.
And, the autumn one feels off for me like someone else mentioned it being based on the season...still its beautiful.
And I LOVE the western desert one.
Very nice. Each biome looks really distinct. :biggrin.gif:
My suggestion for the "Wild West Desert" biome is that it is a relatively small biome that can appear within a much larger desert biome - having both this and the regular deserts as large biomes would be a bit awkward, imho.
Autumn forest, on the other hand, would be quite awesome as an entirely separate biome. My thoughts are that this would work really well if there was a kind of compass system (North South East West) from your original spawn, and that these would spawn more commonly the further "South" you went. Or at the very least if these appeared a bit further from spawn than the other biomes, even if there wasn't a compass-directional system.
If the grove is a small biome, the lack of enemies spawning isn't a problem at all, imho. Plus it just looks pretty. :3
Like with the Wild-West desert, the Frost biome should appear within a winter biome, or connected to a winter biome but smaller. Especially since winter biomes tend to be so obscenely massive to begin with.
Sorry, but I lol'd at the Darklands. I like the concept, though, especially with the darker skies (because that would allow for more monster spawnings). Perhaps these could appear farther from spawn, so that new players don't accidentally wander there by accident. And more powerful enemies would be freakin' awesome. :3
Overall, this is a really cool idea - you kept them simple to allow for greater expansion by the community/Mojang, yet each is distinct and would add a ton of depth to the game aesthetically. :smile.gif:
I think your design for the desert should just replace the current one. It looks awesome. The blossom groves should be very small and rare, but look awesome. The frost biome ideas should be incorporated into the current tundra biomes.
I've added a 6th biome, which I hope you like. Unfortunately, palms aren't that easy making with blocks that big, and maybe Jeb manage to find a block shape that optimises the look.
It feels like they get hundreds of mails each day with requests and suggestions that they don't really have time to read them all.
I like the upgraded beach biome. :smile.gif: The palm trees actually look quite good!
I think that Tweeting them works better for getting the message to them, because like you said they probably get a bajillion e-mails from people trying to give them ideas. And you'd want to send it to Jeb, not Notch, since Notch has abandoned work on Minecraft and Jeb is the lead developer. :tongue.gif:
Wow, these are some great ideas, nice work. Although, the autumn biome is kind of out of place, considering it is always fall there, plus there are already easy sources of mushrooms in swamp biomes and the Mushroom biomes. I thought I heard something about Jeb working on a jungle biome already. I would love to have a frost biome, because I’m not too thrilled with the current snow biomes :dry.gif: , there’s not much in them and that’s all I ever seem to spawn in. It looks like you’ve come up with some great ideas and I would love to see them ingame. :smile.gif:
