Imagine getting biome exploration maps from the cartographer in your village, giving one of them to the wandering trader, and after a few Minecraft days or Minecraft weeks, the wandering trader comes back the village near the bell with various items from that specific biome! This would allow the player to get resources more easily from absurdly rare biomes and from new biome updates that likely will be extremely far from your Minecraft base in a post update Minecraft world.
Why I Think This is a Good Idea
It's Still Balanced!
I think a concern for many would be that the wandering trader may replace the player's desire to go out and explore. The reason I disagree with this is because of the time it could take for the trader to return. If the trader say's they will return in 3 weeks, you may want to still go out and explore yourself to make sure you need the trader to go that far out for so long. There is also the problem of cost. The trader will always charge you emeralds for their goods whereas if you were to find the biome yourself, you could get those resources for free!
The goal for this idea is for you to still want to explore your world, but not have to travel 10,000 blocks, create 100 Minecraft worlds, or wait for the wandering trader to return 1,000,000 times just for you to find a block from the Mushroom island. I doubt the developers want you to go through that much trouble for a rare island, I'm sure they'd want you to eventually find it BUT in the case that you cant, this allows for the developers to decide when you have waited long enough!
no more unfairness due to randomization!
Upvote if you like this idea, and share your thoughts on if you like it or not
Yeah this is a decent, simple idea I can get behind. I like it, because sometimes a specific biome will be thousands of blocks away and the trip to go out there yourself isn't worth the time and effort.
