Hi! Are you sick of only having a few biomes in your Minecraft 1.12.2 worlds? If so, this is the mod for you!

This mod adds new items, weapons, tools, armour and dimensions to your world.

Due to a glitch with page editing, I have to put the link to the bug report/mod discussion here: https://mcreator.net/forum/52878/wjbs-biome-pack-discussion-board
