A few questions about structures
Thu, 08/30/2018 - 16:15

I'm new to structures because I never added them before (they where very bugged before 1.8.0) and I have a few questions about them:

1- What's the difference between Surface and Underground spawning in a Nether-like dimension? I tried to make a Lava Well structure generate in my Fire Dimension using "Underground" and it just weirdly generates floating in air or hidden in a place where there is no air (just the one produced by the structure itself);

2- Is it possible to make some structures generate exclusively in a biome that is not an overworld biome? For example, if I want to make 2 different biomes for a dimension, and I want to make different structures based on these biomes, is it possible?

Thanks for helping.

  1. Underground is just random height, while ground tries to find a ground, although finding "ground" is rather difficult and unreliable.
  2. Custom structures from biome do not spawn in dimensions at the moment, but we plan to improve this in future updates.

If I choose "ground" will the structure spawn above bedrock?

No, it should try to find the first ground in nether and in overworld.
