Full list of sprites[edit]

What happened to the full list section? The sprites are incorrect in some biomes and most of them have no sprite. - Cherryblossom000 (talk) 23:05, 15 July 2017 (UTC)

Clear your cache; the sprite sheet size was changed a few days ago. -- Orthotopetalk 00:04, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

Group (displayed) biome sprites[edit]

Looking at the set of biome icons on the biome/ID page, I notice that the biome icons are too unique. It doesn't help to identify a biome by its icon, if they're all unique in very minor ways like this because the variants all look alike. For sprites like blocks and items this works because their resolution is much, much lower. But a sprite for a biome is so much more detailed that these minor differences become invisible. Sometimes it's even just a couple of pixels or even colour differences, which are in most cases, completely obscure. I suggest to change each biome's sprite to a single shared sprite, per group of biome variants. And specifically, I would suggest to group them like this:

I'm not specifically saying, use these sprites instead, as for each group the sprite might be optimized to be slightly more representative for all biome variants in that group. Also, if there is strong oppose against stripping away the uniqueness factor, I'd be suggesting to only put this grouping forward where biome sprites are displayed, rather than actually eliminating the sprites in this template. I don't have an opinion on which way that's supposed to go myself. – Jack McKalling [ Talk Contrib ] 21:55, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
