How the biomes spawn

In Cave Biomes, the overworld is split into 2 layers, with layer 1 being from any cave above or at y29, and layer 2 being caves from y28 to y0. Cave biomes in layer 1 mimic the overworld biome above them. For example, caves in jungles are filled with vines, and caves in deserts have patches of sand. Layer 2 cave biomes on the other hand, do not follow existing overworld biomes and instead are their own, unique biomes.

Mod compatibility

This mod is compatible with Yung's better caves! You'll need to set the "generateLocalWaterLevels" in cave biomes' config to false to prevent weird water generation, however.


Forge pls???
