Everyone loves to see variety in minecraft with trees, clays, glasses.
But what about one more addition to the trees?
There is always more to explore.
What about "Dead Trees"?
So, when i talk about "Dead Trees", I mean Actually dead. Naturally generated and bare to the log.
Those pesky leaves always get in your way, refusing to de-spawn a single floating block of leaf.
While the bigger trees have their tiers and logs, the logs will stay the same structure only without the leaves, the smaller trees will just have their poles.
Well what will come of this you ask?
Well the end result is Rot Wood. Rot wood is great for easy fire starting (as in rapid spreading so dont mess with it unless you want to get burned). It burns Hot but Fast in the real world. When you place rot wood in a furnace it burns double the speed and cooks faster, but when rot wood is exposed to fire in Minecraft, Fire-spread is rapid and almost uncontrollable unless it hits a patch of living trees or the edge of the biome. But watch out when you break one of these dead rot logs. Inside are pests: The silverfish. There is a chance that a silverfish will pop out of an interfered or broken log.
These sound pretty good hmm?
How about we get to where they spawn and how they spawn.
These Dead trees spawn in groups or in solitary due to silverfish infestations. Some spawn single in a forest just lonely and dead. Overturned Trees could be a feature in this. It makes the tree rot while all of the bugs get to it. After one tree falls a sapling will take its place, and the dead tree will fertilize the area indicated by mushrooms around the tree as it decays (And no i'm not talking about swamps). Trees would naturally fall after a certain lifespan which I would like to call it a cycle. From sapling, to tree, to dead, to rot, to fertilizer, and mushrooms, and or sapling in the dead tree's place.
Heck we could make a biome out of this.
So why not? "Death Forest"
How about that?
We could have dead forests now!
Trees Deader than ever, maybe Dense, maybe underwater, Barren, loss in sense of humanity, and Perfect for a game of Hide And Go Seek, or a primitive version of parkour.
Here are the conceptual screenshots of dead trees:
Feel free to give them a look and give me your input.
Thank you for the support if you give me any and i will update this soon enough once i can get my textures to work. Feel free to give your opinion.
Charred Trees - Charred trees are trees burnt by lighting strike. During lighting storms, there's a slight chance that a tree gets hits by a lighting and become a charred tree.the tree would be black or darkened depending on the type of tree.Chopping into a Charred tree would give you an instant but rare source of charcoal.
