    TerraformGenerator is a world generator plugin that aims to provide an enhanced vanilla feel. As of now, it is in an Alpha stage, meaning some core features are not implemented yet (a list of known issues and to-dos is on the discord). However, the world is playable with all vanilla items obtainable, though I will heavily recommend thoroughly testing it for yourself before deploying it to a production environment

    I am in mandatory National service, and support will be bottle-necked.

    There are commands, but they are developer commands and only available via /op. Try not to use them unless you understand what they do.

    On another note, for 1.15.2, the version released on 23rd Feb 2020 is the recommended version, as it fixes an itchy spigot issue. More details at the bottom under "bugs". 1.14.4 does not have this fix.

    Read the FAQ and look at the more detailed installation instructions here.

    Prerequisites
    • You need at least Java 11
    • Pregeneration is recommended regardless of your server specs, as TerraformGenerator was not designed to generate live

    Method One
    • Turn off the server if it is running
    • Place TerraformGenerator.jar in your plugins folder
    • Inside bukkit.yml, add this, where "world" is your world name:
    Code (YAML):
    worlds:
        world
    :
            generator
    : TerraformGenerator
    • Delete the old world folder (if present), and start the server
    Method two
    • Place TerraformGenerator.jar in your plugins folder
    • Inside bukkit.yml, add this, where "world" is your world name:
      Code (YAML):
      worlds:
          world
      :
              generator
      : TerraformGenerator
    • Delete the old world folder (if present), and start the server
    • Use the command "/mv create genworld" from Multiverse
      normal -g TerraformGenerator"
    Probably works with multiworld, but I didn't try it.

    Excellent plugin, I have a question, In the event that the plugin has a new update is it necessary to re-create a new world?

    Version: 5.0.0
    4.99 / 5 stars. Easily the best free Custom Gen plugin. Only issues I have are:

    1. The absolutely humongous trees, which I found I can turn off in the config.

    2. Very laggy when flying around, which I imagine I can fix by pre-generating the world

    3. No option to turn off spawner cages generating with structures (I don't want spawners in my structures, especially structures like desert pyramids. (I love that I can turn off structure types though.)

    Otherwise this plugin is !!AMAZING!! Everything is so beautiful and grand and spectacular and (looks up all possible synonyms for amazing).

    Honestly don't know how it can be free...
    Also, I am the 100th review which is POG

    I use this on a production server. The only thing that's wrong is "Emeralds", they don't spawn.
    BUT. I can live with that. Otherwise this is perfectly balanced with structures, much to explore and todo!

    I don't got any issues yet and I've used it in a loong time now. My players are enjoying it.

    This is a really great custom world generator, even at its current alpha state. The environments are exactly what I wanted for my server, and the new structures really add a fresh new incentive for exploration.

    The first thing players will likely notice upon entering a world generated with TerraformGenerator is just how big the trees are. They are huge. Humungous. Absolutely gargantuan. Since each tree is unique, it really gives the impression that the world is alive, and has been flourishing for a long time. The suspension of disbelief really comes through in this aspect. In especially forested areas, the combination of these large trees with small ground shrubs makes it feel like I'm walking through a semi-fantasy world or something.

    The addition of some surface features like boulders, cracked and mossy stone mixed with regular stone in mountains, the rivers connecting to seas in large deltas, and even the gentle sloping that sometimes occurs in Plains biomes really ties the whole thing together. It looks like each block was hand-placed by an experienced builder, which means it looks really great. Dare I say, if you ever needed a custom terrain build and could not find or afford professional builders, depending on how you set it up and the locations you pick, you could maybe get away with copy-pasting TerraformGenerator-made biomes.

    There is a chance to spawn very large biomes (thousands of blocks in diameter), though I suspect it has more to do with my seed than with the plugin. However, if it is a problem with the plugin (even with some tweaks to the config), maybe in time, it could be fixed.

    All in all, this is a really good resource if you want a unique world generation experience. However, if you are planning to put this in a production environment, I would think twice based on the recommendation of the dev. Still, for private servers, it's a cool addition.

      You can raise biome sizes by increasing biomesection bitshifts in config

    Amazing!!! Needs more structures and biomes by default, but with effort you can make your own.

    Encountered lots of problems (my server-side), the plugin works fine. Easily one of the best generator plugins available at the moment. The developers are very helpful & are always there to help. Easily 5 stars
