We've had the aquatic update, the nether update, End cities update, pillagers in overworld etc.
Isn't it time that we get a dimensions update that adds a fourth dimension to go to? there are mods that do this already, but I think the vanilla game should get at least one more, preferably at least 2 more. If not Twilight Forest, Ice Age or The Aether, something similar to either of them.
One of the newer dimensions could be extremely hazardous for players to go to in exchange for rare loot, and perhaps a more calm, paradise-like dimension to go with it for end game and to be a safe haven for builds and mining, only accessible after completing specific end game challenges? an update like this would offer something for everyone, a difficult time with dangerous mobs and new hazards in one dimension, and an effective peaceful mode in the other, without having to actually enable such a mode.
A new dangerous dimension which could be similar to Twilight Forest, could have wizards, and new hostile mobs named goblins (a feature not present in TF mod) which wield swords and also throw magical fireballs at the player who goes near them, if they die in confrontation with them they risk losing their inventory items due to fires being ignited in the arena they fought the goblins in.
If the goblins are defeated, the players receive a random drop, ranging from not so great items like saplings which are common in the overworld, to enchantment books, which are usually only obtainable from specific loot sources such as fishing, villagers and piglins, but are now (rarely) obtainable from defeating goblins also.
Players would need to pay careful attention and remember to put out the fires just before assassinating the goblins in the new dimension, otherwise the drops could be destroyed. And a newly introduced but extremely rare loot item which enables teleportation over long distances, but must be linked and powered by redstone, and only a maximum of 4 different locations can be warped to and back using this method, this would also be the only way to access the paradise-like other dimension I mentioned, locations should be able to be linked or unlinked, but if the paradise-like dimension is linked, that leaves you with only 3 warp slots left.
Alternatively the rare loot items in this dimension could be made obtainable only by defeating a Hallowed Knight boss, which would be more interesting, they would have powers similar to the goblins, but have a lot more HP due to wearing armour, and each fireball causing 2.5 hearts of damage plus burn status, and be riding armoured horses.
Skeletons already exist in Minecraft, but could be made to spawn in this new dimension also.
This new dimension could be named Hallowed, which as it implies is a dimension involving magic.
The surface could be made to look like a woodland that is seemingly endless, but be hiding many important structures housing the new mobs and bosses. Jack o lanterns would be lighting the gardens of these structures, also collectable, witches would also be lurking in the forests, adding danger to the exploration, graveyards could be found but come in 2 variants, The Cursed Graveyard and the hallowed graveyard, the Hallowed Graveyards would have no hostile mob spawns, because all evil in these regions has been purged by magic, this would effectively render this region similar to the mushroom fields biome, the cursed graveyards could have the skeletons I mentioned before, which already exist in current MC, but could be made to spawn in these regions of this new dimension suggestion.
Cursed Graveyards would be hostile, but both variants of the graveyards should be made to have coffins, which upon being dug up, should reward the player with 5 bones and either a Wither skull or a gold ingot.
Anyone like these ideas? is there anything else to add or remove from this idea? please let me know.
