Biome Variation adds more variants to mobs and blocks based on their respective biomes! Most of the textures are from Minecraft Dungeons and the late Minecraft Earth, with some modifications from me to make them as aesthetically pleasing as possible!

NOTE: This pack is currently being split up. Eventually, this pack itself will become the collection of all the Biome Variation packs.

Requires OptiFine:

Current Features:
  • More Skeleton Variants
  • More Zombie Variants
  • Soul Sand Valley Mobs
  • Sandy Stone Bricks
  • More Layers
  • Iceologer
  • Wooly Cow
  • Icicles
  • Chorus Log
  • End Ore
  • And Much More!
Planned Features:
  • More End blocks
  • Moobloom
  • Dog Variants Based On Biomes
  • Villager Skin Tones
  • Zombie Villager Variants
  • Baby Ghast
  • And Much More!

4 Update Logs

v1.3.0 : by M3FF1N 10/31/2021 10:44:00 amOct 31st, 2021

  • Mossy Blocks - Chiseled Stone Bricks, Bone Blocks, and Polished Andesite in the jungle and lush caves are now mossy
  • Snowy Illusioner - Illusioners that spawn in icy biomes wear winter clothing to stay warm
  • Muddy Pig - Pigs spawning in swamps are covered in mud (WARNING: The babies are very cute)
  • Ender Ores - Near the bottom of end islands, end stone has a chance to either be Ender Iron or Ender Diamond ore (Note: These ores can be fun to mine, but are just retextured end stone)
  • Warped Striders - Striders spawning in warped forests are blue (Mob Skin by KitKatTheKit)
  • Netherite Rails - Rails in the nether are made of netherite, similar to those found in the Flames of the Nether DLC in Minecraft Dungeons
  • Cracked Red Nether Bricks - I know this doesn't really have to do with a biome, but when red nether bricks touch cracked nether bricks, they both turn to cracked red nether bricks
  • Warped Nether Bricks - Red nether bricks in warped forests are blue (Note: I did not do this with regular nether brick as when I tried that, nether fortresses expanding into warped forest looked very weird)
  • Snowy Polished Andesite - Polished Andesite in snow biomes is covered in snow
  • Snow Berries - Sweet berry bushes in snowy biomes are covered with snow
  • Slightly-Autumn Birch Leaves - Birch Leaves now have a slightly orange tint

  • The textures of Snowy Stone Bricks are now consistent with vanilla Stone Bricks
  • Changed the model of skeletons so that Sunken Skeletons now have coral growing out of them
  • Changed the model of evokers so that Iceologers now have cloaks and hoods
  • Changed the model of pigs so that Muddy Pigs have a clump of mud with a flower on top
  • Fixed a bug where the lava in Lava Cauldrons was gray (Found by legendaryguy)
  • Fixed a bug where part of the Blackstone Cube texture had the vanilla magma cube pallete (Found by legendaryguy)

Despite the warning, it works just fine in 1.18, assuming you have OptiFine. I've used it in 1.18 for a few months now :P

Do you have OptiFine? If not, the pack will not work. Otherwise, I don't know.

It should still have Fresh Animation support for all entities, but the new update adds custom models for the Skeleton, Pig, and Evoker, so those won't be compatible anymore. :( But, if all goes to plan and I split this up into smaller packs, then I can just make the new models be an add-on for the main packs.

I've been thinking about this for a while. I think it is something I'll have to do soon. I think this resource pack will remain, but only as basically a collection of all Biome Variation packs.
