Terrain generation question
Sat, 05/09/2020 - 16:21

So what I want to do is have an image that is the map and I want a specific dimension to generate different biomes depending on the different colours of the image. This is similar to some mods like worldpainter but mine is predetermined to make a map of the Earth. if this cannot be done normally in mcreator can anyone make it out of code?

unfortunately I don't think that is possible in both Mcreator or just plain code,

what your trying to do uses height maps and that isn't used in Minecraft's terrain generation system

It must be possible some way though, you should check out the world painter mod, they have achieved it

Yeah but thats with a map, not an entirely custom dimension that you access through a portal anywhere in the world and is made entirely out of plain code :/

Worldpainter just creates a custom level.dat file, not a new dimension. and a level.dat file controls the generation of every dimension
