Modify Mapgenerator for snowy map

Discussion in 'Spigot Help' started by DerRene, Oct 3, 2019.

  1. Hey,

    I am planing on doing a server with a snowy/christmas theme.
    But i need a way to modify the mapgenerator (with a plugin?) to get a map with only snow/ice biomes.

    I hope someone got an idea to get this working, and maybe there is also a plugin to get a improved
    mapgenerator for an even more impressive map.

    Thank you!
  2. While I don't know such a plugin, it should at least be possible to place snow in all the biomes by adding a BlockPopulator to your world, and then by disabling snow melting.

    However, it's probably not the most efficient way to do so - I have not done a lot of worldgen, I'm not an expert at all

    Edit: In 1.13, it was possible to add a BlockPopulator doing this:
    Code (Java):
    this.getServer().getWorld("Skyland").getPopulators() .add(new CustomBlockPopulator(this));
    In wich" Skyland" was the name of my world, and CustomBlockPopulator a BlockPopulator I created. Back then, I waited for the 2nd tick of the server to do add it, but I can't remember why ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  3. I think the best working solution for me would be by only generating specific biomes (the snow/ice ones)
    But i didn't found a way to do this yet.
