If you’ve started to grow tired of the worlds and terrains in vanilla Minecraft, then maybe it’s time to spice it up with ExtraBiomesXL 1.6. This mod adds a total of 28 new biomes into the Minecraft experience, and all of these biomes are based on a different part of the earth. From the frosty taiga biomes to the crippling hot desert worlds, ExtraBiomesXL has it all.
It’s important to note that ExtraBiomesXL doesn’t change Minecraft’s gameplay in any way. It simply adds new terrains, items, and biomes in order to make the world a little more interesting. For that reason, the highlights of ExtraBiomesXL are the biomes. Here are some of the most popular biomes currently included in the mod:
Glacier: Glacier is a fan favorite biome that features ice capped peaks and snowy mountain valleys. Players live on a glacier, which comes with all sorts of different challenges. Fortunately, snow can be used as soil. And for players that want to see snow and ice without having to climb over mountains, there is also a Tundra biome, which features a flat, snowy desert.
Temperate Rainforest: This biome immediately brings to mind the west coast of North America. Leafy pine trees crowd around dark blue bodies of water, and animals run around the forest. Exploring these dense forests can be both fun and challenging.
Mountain Ridge: If you like the mountains in ExtraBiomesXL, then Mountain Ridge builds off of that experience. The map features massive mountain ridges that cut through the terrain.
Green Swamp: There are two different swamp biomes in ExtraBiomesXL. Green Swamp is one, Marsh is the other. In Green Swamp, players are in a wet, leafy terrain surrounded by dense vegetation.
Extreme Jungle: One last fan favorite is Extreme Jungle. It’s exactly the same as the Jungle biome in vanilla Minecraft. The only difference is that instead of being relatively flat, the biome is filled with steep mountains. Some mountains are narrow needles that shoot up into the sky, while others are massive cliffs or mountain valleys. As intended, the Extreme Jungle biome features very extreme terrain.
In ExtraBiomesXL, players have access to biomes from anywhere in the world. Whether you want to replicate cold Siberia or the Sahara Desert, ExtraBiomesXL makes it easy for players to choose new and exciting types of terrain.
