Method to set biomes besides WorldEdit?

  1. Hello! I'm not exactly sure where this thread should be posted so I'll put it here for now and hope that it's right!

    I'm looking for a way to manually (or automatically) set biomes to an artificially made map that is thousands of blocks long/wide. I know MCEdit has the ability to do so but I don't think it works for any version above 1.13? The map is made in version 1.15.2.

    Is there a way to accomplish this with Java perhaps? Potentially by looking through a chunk, collecting information on what blocks/block types are within that chunk and if the blocks match >50% of the blocks a desert would have logically- set the biome of those blocks to desert? That obviously won't be the most reliable way- it's just a proof of concept.

    I don't know if it's a realistic goal to try to create this. Let me know what you think or if there is a resource already out there that can help!
  3. Why can't you just use WorldEdit? I would recommend worldedit and go to spectator mode and scroll the mouse wheel to zoom around and you can do it eaisly.
  4. I don't think this will help with what I need done?

    This is definitely an option, but before I do so, I wanted to see if anyone else had any ideas that might be more beneficial.
  5. Not that i know of, there is no better tool than WorldEdit. Unless you want to try and learn Java and make a custom plugin for it which will take longer.
