A barren biome consisting mostly of sand, large dunes, dead bushes, and cacti. Sandstone is commonly found underneath the sand. Rain never falls in this biome. Sugar cane can be found if the desert is next to an ocean or river biome. The lack of visual obstruction makes mobs highly visible at night. Desert NPC villages, desert wells and desert temples are found exclusively in this biome. As of the Horse Update, lakes do not generate in this biome, although lava lakes still can.
