Environs++ adds a modest amount of biomes to the Minecraft world, all of which stay true to the vanilla style. Some of the included biomes were heavily inspired by old, removed Biomes O' Plenty and ExtraBiomesXL biomes.
Versions before 1.0-pre2 do not work on servers. You have been warned!
Environs++ works well with other biome mods such as Traverse, Redwoods and Novam Terram. I don't edit any base files so no incompatibilities should arise.

Tall Oak Forest (Sub-biome: hills)
Emerald Cliffs (Emeralds generate here)

Pine: A tall, spruce-like tree which generates in extreme hills+, extreme hills m and pine taiga biomes. The logs craft into spruce planks.
Cypress: A swamp-like tree, generating in swampland, swampland m, sludgepit, silk wetland and tall oak forest biomes. The logs craft into jungle planks.
Eucalyptus: An acacia-like tree, generating in savanna, plains and sandstone ranges biomes. The logs craft into birch planks.
Frozen: A large, white spruce-like tree exclusive to the relatively rare icy hills biomes. The logs craft into birch planks.
End: A set of four different trees exclusive to the end forest biome. The logs craft into birch planks, and the saplings only grow into shrubs, making these trees hard to farm.

-Two new biomes for 1.4

Modpacks: Feel free to use any version of this mod in a modpack. I recommend running the mod with Climatic Biomes, as it makes for some picturesque landscapes with these biomes!
