Expansive Biomes v1.4 (Halloween Update!)

Want new biomes to explore in your Minecraft world? Expansive Biomes adds 20+ new biomes to the game for you to seek out and explore, with more being added in the future!

This is my first attempt on biomes, so I hope you enjoy! Expansive Biomes adds 20+ new biomes to the game for you to seek out and explore. Inspired heavily by the Java Edition mod Biomes O' Plenty, you will find some similar biomes if you have played the mod. Expansive Biomes also includes some new mobs, and blocks!

I love this mod but I have a suggestion. Add different modes. like a OP mode where everything is super easy, or a HARDCORE mode where everything is a lot less common, or a reverse mode and I mean reverse, like Diamond = common, Stone = rare. Great mod

Hello good mod, but only as a small suggestion and I have been having problems with the mod's mobs since its texture appears bugged to me until I try to put the texture first of all and well, I don't know if you could make a version by just making a version of only biomes

I Loved your mod during 1.17.11 and it worked perfectly with tons of other mods, but now in 1.17.30 there appears to be a very rare glitch WHEN THIS MOD IS USED BY ITSELF where I will be moving across the ground, get close to some unknown thing, and then the game crashes.

I wish I knew what it was so that I could pass it along, but I dont. I can see how it could easily get overlooked, because it typically takes me a couple hours into gameplay to find it. Because of this, I am posting here in the hopes that the creator will be able to take a second look at his mod and fix this so I can get his wonderful biomes back

I'm unsure if anyone else is having this problem, but on 1.17.11, I was able to use this addon with caves and cliffs feature on. But with the new 1.17.30 update, when I turn on caves and cliffs, I don't get any of the new biomes. Sad days. But thank you for all the hard work you do! This pack is amazing.

On another note I just wanted to see if there may be a potential fix in the future or if it's just me.
Log in to Reply
its because of the experimental caves and cliffs, turn them off and the biomes will start to generate
