Author's Message: Hi! Sorry for the long wait on this update I've super busy with school (Testing Season Yay!) anyway this update adds in an entire new Essence System to the game, you'll want to craft yourself an essence extractor and simply right click on any BYG Flower! There is 5 kinds of essence right now and they all are used in making various 

things from Saplings to portal keys so enjoy! I also added the "Red Petal Forest" so keep an eye for it! 


Overworld Biomes:

Marsh Swamp

Red Petal Forest
Maple Forest
Flower Groves
Birch Plains
Cika Forest
Tundra Flats
Frozen Forest
Crag Mountains

Old Forest (Important Notes!)

-Leaves deal 20 damage during the day!

-Leaves & Logs are unbreakable in the forest

-This is because the forest acts as a dungeon for a future structure!'



Cyprus Dimension (Subject to change) 

-Uses Eternal Oak as a frame and an Ancient Key to light it

The Dark Dimension

-Uses Dark Obsidian as a frame and a Hex Key to light it

Athura Dimension

-Uses Athura Gateway Blocks as a frame and an Athura Key to light it

when I first saw this mod I thought to myself "oh look, just another biomes of plenty copy" but now it's come so far I can say its quite impressive what you've put together. (of course, it still resembles biomes of plenty but that's inevitable and I won't hold that against you ;D ) Great Work!

Thanks! Yes the mod was inspired by Biomes O Plenty, but I also was very determined to make Minecraft a much more complicated and diverse game with byg. ^-^
