I'm sure devs would love to include all generators ever possible, including 1.0, alpha, infdev, indev and classic.
The question is, does the fact you would love to do something, result you are able to? Unfortunately no, and this is also the answer for your comment ^^
1.17 support is dropped already, and MCreator devs support up to two versions, since the more versions are supported, the more work they have and less is done eventually

Its been so long!!! When it will be released i wanna use the new features !!! this should get released soon

I found a big problem (MCreator 2022.1). Custom structures don't generating in nether dimension, custom plants same

This is great! MCreator is probably one of the best mod creation platforms I've eve had the pleasure to use, keep up the great work!

Does anyone know if and when support for custom trees including support for saplings is being implemented.
