Skylands has been updated to 1.16.5 and brings with it a bunch of improvements including the addition of the new vanilla worldgen blocks and (forge) modded biome support!
Skylands is a world preset for Open Terrain Generator (required) which generates interconnected floating islands and deadly void below. Watch your step!
The world contains sky variants of all of the normal overworld biomes with the exception of Oceans and Rivers (because that would be silly!)
It can be used either as a replacement for the overworld or as an additional dimension and works on both Forge and Paper.
The download includes two types of world generation. One of them is the default Skylands configuration while the other is a more performance friendly version with less verticality than the regular Skylands.
All vanilla ores generate with the same rarity as the vanilla overworld, with the difference that they can generate at any height.
Installing for single player (Forge) is easy, just drop the jar file in your mods folder and use the OTG World Creation Menu to add it as either your overworld or a separate dimension.
For servers there are a few more steps to follow, head over to the OTG Wiki page where you’ll find installation instructions for both Forge and Paper servers.
Does Skylands have modded biome support?
As of 1.16.5, yes! Simply install your any and all of your favourite overworld biome mods and Skylands will automatically insert them into the biome groups and generate them in the world. Easy!
Can I use this alongside other OTG presets?
Only one preset can be used as a replacement for the overworld, however using dimensions you can add as many as you like.
Can I use this as a dimension if my overworld is not an OTG world?
You can use OTG presets as dimensions or as an overworld replacement. It is even possible to start a vanilla (or other modded) overworld and add Skylands as a dimension through the single player world creation menu.
See the OTG wiki for more details on how to do this both in single player and on a server.
