Large Biomes is a world type that generates worlds at a higher scale than in normal worlds.
Large Biome worlds are generated as Default worlds, but scaled 4x (multiplied by 4 along the X and Z axis), causing the biomes of the Overworld to be expansive. A Default and Large Biome world sharing the same seed are geographically the same, overall. Rivers are not larger than they are in a default world.
The player can use a map to gain a visual representation of the scale of the biomes in their world.

- Amplified - Similar to large biomes, but world generation is instead expanded vertically.
