Description

Hey! If you want to, you can now come chat about Geophilic on my new Discord server.

🌲 About

Geophilic is a datapack-based mod that improves vanilla Overworld biomes in a subtle and simple way! The main inspiration comes from scrapped illustrations for what was supposed to be the Wild Update — this is essentially a collection of light improvements to vanilla biomes without any new blocks, items, or even new biomes.

Main changes are made to the rarity and density of certain biome features, such as trees, grass, or flowers. New features are added too — rocks, fallen trees, moss, tree stumps, bushes, and sometimes new types of trees. Most trees are however left almost fully vanilla, with the only major change being how tall trees generate, so you don't bump your head so often!

In short, this isn't meant to be an epic worldgen overhaul, but rather a simplistic and nice update to the feel of vanilla biomes.

📝 Notes

Fabric mod version requires Fabric API!

This mod only modifies vanilla biome files and adds configured and placed features, which means it's fully compatible with mods and data packs that modify terrain, such as Tectonic.

New versions of the mod may differ slightly. I may make any changes, including the removal of features. While Minecraft can handle this and updating the mod won't corrupt your world, it's still good practice to make regular backups.
