Hey Fellows of PMC :)
Today I'm posting a blog about Volcanoes.
Now, in the recent updates, Mojang has been focusing on terrain and biome changes. But what if they started to add natural disasters?
Thats why Im starting a new blog series! This first one is about Volcanoes.
Okay, lets get started...

If minecraft had volcanoes, the game would be much more intense in my opinion. They would be mainly be on small tropical islands (like Hawaii). They are giant mountains leading up to a big drop, with an endless pit of lava in it.
At times, there would be a major earthquake when the volcano were to erupt. The screen would shake and there would be a rumbling sound. Then the volcano will spit out rocks, and molten hot lava everywhere, completely saturating the island.
This would burn all the trees down, the houses you built would melt, the island will be literally impossible for life. Rocks that went flying will land at random areas. If one were to hit your house/structure, it would be destroyed. If one were to hit yourself, you would die instantly.
These volcanoes could be found in mountainaus biome, islands, jungles, and maybe some plains.
about a 100 block radius around the volcano would be destroyed after eruption.

Thats all guys! Make sure to DIAMOND if you enjoyed and SUBSCRIBE!

That is a very hard code.

I disagree about this. If Minecraft had volcanoes, they would destroy the beautiful landscape. I do, however, agree with lobie10. Volcanoes would be nice to admire.

If I added volcanos, they probably wouldn't erupt. ^_^` I just want to admire it's beauty, really. Oh, but it would have lava flowing down the top sometimes, though. :3

That would be so cool. I hope that Minecraft somehow adds seasons also.

Volcanoes should be generated by certain designated chunks where lava streams down to bedrock and it is mineral rich and forms like basalt around it.

If volcanoes were added, they would be a randomly generated structure. They would only spawn in biomes such as extreme hills, extreme hills plus (cliff biome), and mesa biomes. There would be a new block that would make it seem like an earthquake was happening, but the only thing it does is take the blocks surrounding it, in this case lava, and throw them high into the air, flying everywhere. Also inside the volcano there would be obsidian along with the lava which would also be tossed into the air. There would be a new kind of entity, much like falling_block, but it would instantly kill you if you touch the entity itself before it turns back into a block when hitting the ground. The volcano would also produce a LOT of smoke particles, and spawning a lot of blocks that are transparent and are able to be passed through, called "tile.ash.name" (because it is not obtainable in vanilla minecraft) and if you touch it you would take two hearts damage, and it spreads REALLY fast. There is a mod for this which adds a bunch of gases most of which will harm you, so Mojang scripters actually kind of have it made, they just wont add it because it would be too intense for minecraft. It would probably be maybe 500 lines of code just to add the volcano script into the game including the new entity and blocks.
