Java Edition only
Large Biomes is a world type.
Generation[edit | edit source]
Large Biome worlds are generated as Default worlds, but scaled 16x (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 will be the same overall geographically. Rivers will not be 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.
To generate large biomes in customized worlds, set the biome size value to 6.
