Have you ever wanted mountains to spawn in ranges, or terrain to generate more like it does in real life? Are you just bored and want to see a volcano? Minecraft Overwritten is the pack for you! I'm taking common complaints about world generation (bigger rivers, mountain ranges, more coal in swamps) and using them to create a new community-inspired datapack that uses all these common suggestions.

Here's what the pack will give you:

- Mountain ranges, bigger mountains
- Wide rivers
- Volcanoes (occasionally erupt and spew lava-filled fireballs)
- Volcanoes do not erupt in peaceful.
- All** vanilla biomes generate in a more realistic way
- Large continents surrounded by ocean
- Tropical islands with coral reefs and volcanoes
- Cold Islands with all the snowy biomes
- redwood forest
- more lapis in jungles, more iron in mountains, more coal in swamps, more diamonds under volcanoes
- New Ocean Biomes: Marine Forest, Kelp Forest, Seagrass Prarie, Large Underwater Volcanoes
- structures are more likely to generate in interesting ways: e.g. a desert temple in a village
- More interesting animals in certain biomes (hoglins in jungles; nether-born hoglins still can become zoglins)


**I think I included all vanilla biomes, but I may have missed 1 or 2 since there are so many.



Here's what I want to add soon:
- swamp and jungle villages
- dead coral islands
- ultra-deep ocean biome??
- stuff y'all suggest


Compatability:
Might not work for versions 1.16.3 or earlier. If you're playing the latest 1.16 release it should be fine.

Probably, it's worth a try
Can you tell me what server type you are using and which datapack you want to combine it with?

What about add dead coral islands?, in the real life exist islands created by millions of years of dead corals stacked.

Wow! I've never heard of those
I'm on the edge about adding them, though. Do you think it would be more fun if I added them?

Impresive. I really enjoy your large rivers, they finally require some bridge to build over :D

also I really would like to know how you made inside of a volcano and outside of it generate in that specific configuration(one around another)?

:D Thanks!

Here is a technical description of how to I got the volcano:

I used multi_noise for the biome generation. With multi-noise, if you want biomes to generate in hotspots (like volcanoes) use larger noise values and if you want them to generate around the edges (like rivers) use values closer to 0. If you want a biome to surround another biome, give the center/inside biome a big value like 0.99 and the surrounding/outside biome a slightly lower value like 0.90.

For the volcano, the inside and outside are two separate biomes. I gave the outer part of the volcano a "weirdness" value of -0.9 and the inner part a -0.95 to make the inner part generate inside.

It doesn't matter if you use weirdness, altitude, temperature, or humidity, since this trick works for all of them (except offset).

You could try it, but save a backup! I've had some experience with changing the worldgen in already-generated worlds.

There could be some weird glitches (like 0 light everywhere or only creepers spawning), or it might work perfectly fine.

Absolutely not (as all world gen packs), it causes many problems, especially when the pack adds new biomes

could u improve the ocean biomes?, also, i really wanna see this mobs around the world: "Llamas, Ocelot, Pandas, Cats, Hoglins, Putterfish, Parrots, Wolf. Foxes, Donkeys, Silverfish, Rabbits" to add more variations, because, only cows, pigs and sheep is boring

I love the animals idea. I don't know how I can improve the ocean though. What would you change about oceans?

The new update is out. Thanks for your suggestions! I started making mob-placement more interesting (like more pandas in the jungle, and special overworld-hoglins).

I also worked hard on improving the ocean biomes by adding marine forests (similar to oceania), underwater volcanoes, kelp forests, and seagrass plains. Enjoy!

Not really :( , but maybe to some extent.

You will probably lose some features from one of the packs, depending which you add first. In some circumstances you might get a mixture of both packs.
