An amplified world

This feature is exclusive to Java Edition and Legacy Console Edition.

Amplified, stylized in-game in the Java Edition as AMPLIFIED, and in Legacy Console Edition as Amplified Worlds, is a world type.


Amplified worlds generate as many large hills and mountains, which dwarf even the mountains biome seen in default world types, and will more often than not reach the world height limit. Deep caverns will often reach down to the bedrock layer. Due to extremely steep cliffs and unforgiving terrain, careless players will find it quite difficult to survive in this world type. Certain biomes (i.e. swamps, oceans and rivers) may see no obvious change in height. Villages will still generate in this world type regardless of how flat the ground is, causing the buildings to generate in bizarre ways.

This world type affects only the Overworld. The Nether and the End generate normally.


It is recommended that the player have a relatively powerful (or "beefy", as it is said in the world type's description) computer to play on Amplified, since world generation uses a large amount of RAM, CPU power, and other resources. Otherwise, intense lagging and long loading times can be a problem. In the Legacy Console Edition, Amplified Worlds can only be created on current-generation consoles (PlayStation 4, Xbox One).
