Cinderscapes is a beautiful, yet frightening biomes mod for Minecraft 1.16 and 1.18.2 running on the Fabric mod loader. Cinderscapes enchances the default minecraft experience by adding four new rich and detailed nether biomes following in the same style as those already in the vanilla game. In addition to new biomes Cinderscapes adds some new unique types of building blocks further expanding your building capabilities.

Cinderscapes requires Fabric Loader and Fabric API 

Check out the Terraformers Discord Server to chat about Cinderscapes and other Fabric mods!

The two central tenants of the Cinderscapes project are refinement and simplicity, so in order to uphold those central values, the few biomes that Cinderscapes does add have gone through rigorous polishing, detailing, and refining to make sure all additions are up to the community's standards. Focus has been placed on depth rather than breadth and we hope that it clearly shows. Overall we hope this will result in a more cohesive experience compared to existing biome mods.


  • Ashy Shoals
  • Blackstone Shales
  • Luminous Grove
  • Quartz Cavern

Images of the biomes can be found on the Images page.
