Welcome to William Wythers' Overhauled Overworld!
In this Fabric mod I seek to re-create the vanilla biomes in a way that makes a more realistic and atmospheric world.
I recommend using large biomes for the best experience.
This mod is incompatible with most structure and ore generation mods!

All rivers are deeper and wider, making them less likely to break and thus easier to use as a mode of transport across the world.
The shores of the river and the life that occurs within it are dependent on the biomes which border it.
Lava lakes and lava springs have been removed from all biomes except the Shattered Savanna Plateau.
Ravines have been removed from most biomes.
Check out the spoiler for pictures of each biome!
I recommend using this mod so that you don't always have to press "I know what I'm doing!" when entering a world: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/fabric-disable-custom-worlds-advice
