Comparison between large and normal. The red dot is the origin of the world. Both worlds have the same seed. The red squares present the same geography, clearly scaled up in the large biomes world.

Large Biomes is a World Type.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Large Biomes cause the biomes of the Overworld to be expansive. The player can use a map to gain a visual representation of the scale of the biomes in their world.

Large Biome worlds are generated as Default worlds, but 16x bigger. A Default and Large Biome world sharing the same seed will be the same overall geographically, but the Large Biomes world will be approximately 16 times bigger, with the x and z axis multiplied by 4. This corresponds to a customized biome size value of 6.

Rivers are not larger than they are in a default world.
