Mod: Add New Biomes to Minecraft with the Extra Biomes Mod (1.1)
The Extra Biomes mod adds more variety to the landscape of Minecraft with 22 new biomes to the game. These biomes include new flowers, soils, and trees that are unique to each biome.
Snowy, rocky landscape with pine trees scattered about.
Somewhat flat with frequent mild hills and mountains. Red, yellow, orange, and brown trees.
Autumn Woods (Alternative)
Similar to the Autumn woods biome.
A relatively flat biome with only birch trees.
Same terrain generation code as Notch’s Extreme Hills biome but with much more vegetation.
Oceans as of now SUCK. Now there’s a variation of islands that don’t suck.
One of the most beloved biomes in the mod, the Glaciers are mountainous, frozen, lifeless, and awesome.
Reminiscent of the good old days in alpha, the Green Hills have a modest amount of trees, beautiful rolling hills, and special orange and white flowers.
Green Hills (Alternative)
Reminiscent of the good old days in alpha, the Green Hills have a modest amount of trees, and beautiful rolling hills.
Taller trees, hydrangeas, cattails, and no hideous hard-coded dark colors.
Green Swamp (Alternative)
Basically a copy/paste of Notch’s swamps, but without the hideous hard-coded dark colors.
Contrary to popular belief, the Ice Mountains have no ice whatsoever. The Ice Mountains were made by Notch, but never allowed to generate ’cause he stinks.
Arguably the most popular biome, the Mini Jungle is packed with tall grass, vines, waterlilys, mushrooms, and dark green water!
Flat, filled with flowers and flowing grass, the Meadow is an awesome place to punch a pig.
Notch Deserts are the ugliest, flattest, most boring biome in the game. Now, they’re only ugly and boring!
High rocky red mountains with rivers carving canyons throughout. Not available in Classic.
Just like a normal Taiga, but with towering mountains and snow!
Designed to resemble the Rainforests from pre-1.8. They’re overgrown with ferns, green grass, big trees, and mountains. Awesome!
Yellow, flat, grassy, and populated with Acacia trees.
Yellow, flat, and grassy, the Savanna kinda sucks to spawn in, but sure provides some magnificent scenery.
No Notch tall grass, but LOTS of short and cover grass.
A snowy biome with thick forests.
Massive Fir trees, large mountains, and dark forest floors.
Temperate Rainforest Snow
The same as the Temperate Rainforest, but with snow!
The Wasteland biome is dry, barren, and ridden with cracked sand.
The alternative Wasteland biome is dry, barren, and ridden with sandstone.
Feels like a vanilla biome. Yellow grass and foliage, quite pleasing.
