Level 65 : High Grandmaster Modder

If you've been on PlanetMinecraft for a while you might've seen this mod float around during 1.6-1.7. After a few more updates, Mojang finally added a way to get worlds with only one biome, thus making this mod obsolete. I thought I could still make this mod work, but I couldn't, so it was abandoned. I've now finally decided to rewrite the whole thing in a way to make it useful.

It adds one new world type: Single Biome World. The customize button will bring you to a list of all available biomes that you can pick from. It's a much cleaner and simpler UI than what Mojang has added.




I have not tested if this mod will update the list to include biomes from other mods. It generates the list from every biome registered through Minecraft Forge's code, which includes vanilla biomes. If the mod does this, then it should show up on the list.

How is this different from the previous Biome World Types versions? The previous versions added a new world type for every biome, which made it incredibly irritating to click through. This new version adds only one world type that brings you to a new interface where you can pick a biome from the list.

What's the point if you can already do this in the vanilla game? There's no point in adding crafting recipes for horse armor if you can already get them from dungeons, right? The way Mojang added a way to get single-biome worlds is sort of annoying, this makes it much easier to do.

Enjoy :)

I think this is possible without the Mod too..
Because you can change it on 1.8+ there is new type of world generation called; Customized
When you go to customized there is tab that says "Biomes" at first it's all but you can change it but anyway thanks for the mod

I actually just found that out a few days ago. Now I'm looking to change the mod a bit so it can do stuff like a forest world type that only has forests, birch forests, taigas, etc.
dat illuminati got me like

Is there a way to make it so everything is a snow biome? So that no matter how far I go, every biome will have snow?

If you're looking for a 1.8 version, I am currently working on something similar, but it won't be out for a while.

I'm still in 1.7.10 since my favorite mods are still there. I won't go 1.8 for a while.
May I use this mod in my modpack? I will link back to this page if so. :)

i'm using this and i have the flowercraft mod that adds a "phantasia" biome. i go to find the biome and it isn't added to the list. is this something to do with flowercraft or does this mod only have vanilla biomes? :3
Is there any way to add mobs in any of these biomes? I tried most of them and they don't have any mobs that spawn at night...
One suggestion, can you possibly make an option to combine biomes? (Ex. jungle/deserts, taiga/extreme hills/ocean, etc.)

In 1.8 there is an option to change worlds to only one biome and even more, there is no need for this...

You can state it as 1.7.10 compatible if you want :). Working without a problem - just the 1st time generation is a bit slow. Doesn't really matter. Thanks for your nice mod.
This is basically just a mod that identically replicates the 1.8 snapshots

Wow, Now that just bring the snapshots to the older versions of Minecraft. You know, you can able to make it kinda like the snapshots, by having a customize tab for it. So it won't be as hard to choose what world type you want.

Ok. Not sure how, as 1.8 pretty much lists all of the biomes, exept Sky(The End), and Hell(Nether.) Well, It may take a while for Forge to update to 1.8, as 1.8 has new blocks, like the slimeblocks, underwater lights, barrier, and more. Also 3 new entitys are added, 1 of them being the Endermite, and the other being the Bunny. The third is not listed yet.

You should update this mod to 1.7.2 so mesa and those bioms are added in this mod. It would be really cool to have only mesa savanna and dessert in amplified :D

OK now this is getting weird. I fixed it, and when I run it, it works perfectly fine. Then I upload it to PMC, people download it, and it crashes. I download it, and it also crashes. It's the same as the one I uploaded. I'm not sure if it's the mod or the way PMC handles downloads...

Since Minecraft only allows 16 world types total, and in 1.7 there will be 4 taken up (1 is unused), I have no idea how I will do this but I hope I can find a way :/
