Minecraft - Community Edition will be a mod of Minecraft 1.13 that will basically create a line of updates parallel to vanilla Minecraft. This will take a team of designers, with me as the creative mind, and other Minecrafters that volunteer. When the mod is released, it will be version 1.0, or MC Community Edition, Version 1.0. From there, it will work up the versions in a similar fashion to vanilla Minecraft, i.e. 1.0, 1.1...1.10, 1.11, etc. The mod will stay on MC version 1.13, being updated through a simple system that checks for updates online and downloads them if possible.
Changelog / Version Ideas

Enchanted Golden Carrots that will immediately set a horse’s Temper to 100 when fed to them
Nether-specific biomes, such as:
Netherrack Caverns - a rename of the vanilla nether as of 1.12

Lava Gushers - areas of lava seemingly flowing upwards in a straight line, up to a point, which fling exploding magma blocks occasionally
