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.

I’ve been playing with this addon for a long time and the quality has never ceased to amaze me! Only gripe is that the scorched forest and volcanic plains look somewhat out of place…
