Amplified worlds generate as many large hills and mountains, which dwarf even the extreme hills 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. swamplands , 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.
It is recommended that you 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.
