Quote from DoomlordKarthus
Thirty-nine people voted yes. In a nutshell, this would leave hollow mountains of bedrock, after the volcanoes stop shooting lava and exploding rocks that is surely going to kill computers.
The idea of volcanoes in Minecraft is pretty cool but I think this topic did it all wrong.
Quote from McAngusYoung
I'm sure some of it might have been inspired by that if enough people whined to Notch and then Jeb about it. But my main question is, why should we care? What is the purpose of this topic?
Quote from Sushimmi
1.cave spiders work/look similarly
2.you mean there would be two types of zombies?
3.no comments...(but its rather okay)
Conclusion:i think this is more of a suggestion thread,why dont you ask a admin/mod/whoever to move it there?
Edit: I dont think I really understand it. I take my words back before the edit.

Yes, it does, but it doesn't mean every volcano should be a dragon's lair. Maybe, it should be like 1-5% of all volcanoes. To be fair, your question asks "Should volcanoes be added (to Minecraft)," not "Should volcanoes be added to Minecraft and all or a select few should also be dragon's lairs." Most of the people that voted, probably were leaning towards the earlier. They just want volcanoes, not Dragon Lairs, maybe not even constantly active volcanoes.
Personally, I'd like to see some volcanoes be active, while others are not. Active volcanoes would only make up 25-30% of the Volcano biome. The rest would be either dormant or Semi-Active (if that's possible to code). Dormant doesn't mean completely safe by the way. There could still be residual lava/ lava flows, inside the cone and maybe Dragon's Lairs aren't limited to active volcanoes. I'd imagine lava pools would be far more common in the volcano biome in general, thus making it a dangerous, albeit rewarding place to mine. Sure, you might hit diamond much closer to surface or even in the remnants of a volcano, but then there's the active cones, increased lava flows, and possibly even a new threat that could be added. (if done right and if possible) (Steam/ ash/ pyroclastic material, that randomly shoot up at you if accidentally mine in bad a spot.)

That's for advanced redstone users. You could also just place torches on the ground to power a 9x9 area centered around the torch. Or put pressure plates on every spot of the floor. But unless you have some redstone wiring hooked up you won't be able to turn it off remotely.

I don't know what to think. A volcano would add an interesting change to the mix, I honestly do not want to run into volcanoes in MineCraft. Especially ones with dragons.
Quote from SpartanCraft
I will take the Volcano. You can keep the Dragon. :wink.gif:
Dragon Lairs sound interesting, but in my opinion it would be better if they spawned randomly on high places like Mountains and Volcanos, but not in every single Volcano or mountain. Also i expect a REAL "treasure" and an epic fight with the dragon. Or maybe he might be tamed and become good so you can ride him. But of course this will have to be a super hard task.
Volcano Biomes now will be interesting because it would be a challenge to survive in them. And also non-renewable materials will become renewable. Furthermore, a Volcano Biome would provide an opportunity for other stuff to be added.
