    Biome - Change biomes
    Version: v0.3.1

    Have you ever wanted it to snow in the desert? How about having ghasts and zombie pigmen in your forests? Well, now you can, weirdo.

    Download - Source Code

    Use the /biome command:
    /biome set [biome name] sets the biome in the chunk you're standing in. (Permission: biome.set.chunk)
    /biome get tells you what biome you're standing in. (Permission: biome.get)
    /biome clear returns the biomes in the chunk you're standing in to their natural state. (Permission: biome.clear.chunk)
    /biome list gives you a list of biomes you can use. (Permission: biome.list)

    Having WorldEdit installed on your server adds the ability to use:
    /biome set-selection [biome name], which sets the biome for every (x, z) value in your WorldEdit selection (Permission: biome.set.selection), and
    /biome clear-selection, which turns every (x, z) value in your WorldEdit selection back to its original state. (Permission: biome.clear.selection)

    Version 0.3.1
    • Fixes a bug that would cause Biome not to work on worlds loaded by plugins before Biome initializes
    Version 0.3 (541 downloads)
    • Permissions support. OPs will still get access to all commands.
    • Stopped reporting the wrong biome in Nether and Skylands.
    • Allow global biomes to be set on a per-world basis, configurable in plugins/Biome/config.yml
    Version 0.2 (415 downloads)
    • Added /biome set-selection and /biome clear-selection, which require WorldEdit to be installed.
    • Changed data storage format to allow for sub-chunk accuracy. Old data will be converted seamlessly.
    • WorldEdit is not required, but will allow /biome *-selection commands if it is available.
    Version 0.1 (43 downloads)
    • Released plugin
    • Called everyone a weirdo

    You should give a list of acceptable biome names,

    ie, Nether,Forest,Plains, Etc. We have no idea what to type into the biome name box.

    That's what /biome list is for. :)

    So, erm.

    I did /biome set Forest in a desert, then did /weather stormy(commandbook), and nothing happened.

    Am I doing it wrong?

    Awesome, i'll try it tomorrow ... it's too late now! :p

    I tried /biome get --> SwampLand
    Then /biome set tundra --> OK
    and then /biome get --> Again SwampLand

    What have I done wrong ?
    But it's still an very interesting plugin (For my Seasons plugin)

    So i can go into the desert, change it to snow and when it rains it will snow? :3 Can someone make a vid and prove it works? Would be awesome if it would! :)

    Well, i was looking for something like this for a long Time. So when i saw it i've installed it directly and this works for me! I don't got a video to 'proof' it to you, but a screenshot will do it too! (It does snow in the Desert chunk, but I think that's because of a Seasons plugin.)


    But anyways, I like the plugin very much but could you make it work with a tool aswell? I don't want to type "/biome set ****" in like every chunk of my world. It would be much easier if I could click the chunks that I would change.

    Very interesting..... but doesn't work in sky-biomes.
    Edit: Nothing works ;-)

    If you were standing on a chunk boundary, it may have been raining behind you.

    I just tried
    /biome get
    /biome set swampland
    /biome get
    /biome clear
    and I couldn't reproduce your problem... Sorry.

    Could you be a little more specific?

    A video would be hard to do because weather happens randomly. However, there are some pictures above and I'll provide a few pictures of my own: My friend thought it would be cool if it snowed at their house a while back, so after I built this plugin, I changed the biomes of the chunks near their house to Tundra.
    Here's another picture that shows more obviously where chunk boundaries are.
    Of course, the effects don't happen immediately. These pictures were taken today, and the command was used yesterday night.

    I wonder if I could hook into WorldEdit's selection tool... That way, biome setting wouldn't be limited to whole chunks, and some interesting polygons could be created.

    Same as rominos then

    Maybe u could add a standard biome, so you only get one biome.
    So if you only want snow, then at the whole world only snow will be there.
    Do you understand what i mean?

    Like: /biome standardset [biome]

    And then all the not edited biomes with this plugin will turn in that biome.

    Now it functions a bit more ^^
    /biome set functions but it's still not snowing in a tundra biome

    I think this would be better as a configuration key as it would only exist once per world. I'll see what I can do.

    I just installed CommandBook, and I see what you mean after using the /weather command. I'll look into how Minecraft chooses weather effects.

    I'm admin with '*' on GroupManager (2.4), biomes 0.2, newest wg, #953

    No No No Don't use CommandBook, use Seasons plugin ^^
    It's much better
    Thanks for lookin into that because it would be cool to collaborate to integrate a part of your plugin in my Seasons plugin
    A long time people want that

    It seems that because weather is a world-wide effect, the biomes are also computed by the client, and that's where snow vs rain comes in. Because of this, making it visually snow in the desert is impossible without a client mod. However, the server-side effect of snowfall still happens, so instead of snow, you'll have something similar to freezing rain. The snow caps will appear just as if it was a snow biome, but rain will fall instead of snow. This also means that it's impossible to make it rain in the desert, but snow can still appear.

    That doesn't look like Biome 0.2 - the command list looks like the one from 0.1. Try downloading 0.2 again.

    /biome set forest
    Set this chunk's biome to Forest
    /biome get
    The biome you are standing in is Tundra

    Doesn't work for me

    /biome set-selection [biome name], which sets the biome for every (x, z) value in your WorldEdit selection, and
    /biome clear-selection, which turns every (x, z) value in your WorldEdit selection back to its original state.

    does not work for me :/
    when I do /biome set-selection Desert, it just returns me with the "/biome <set type:list:whatever..."

    Yeah got the same problem.

    Me too..

    suggestion.. can you make into .yml?? so we can edit the x y z through notepad?? sometimes, when I'm trying to select a large amount of chunk, and changing the biome, it will hung my server and disconnect me..

    I've been waiting for this plugin for a long time! Now I can get rid of the random snow spots around spawn, now it's all green and welcomey for newcomers! :D

    Ok, that sounded cheesey. I do have a question, and I'm just asking this because I know some of the players on my server love to exploit their abilities...
    This plugin allows everyone, or just OPs to use the command? Since there is no permissions settings for either Permissions or it's own permissions list. I wouldn't mind if it was OPs only.

    Ok, good idea but :
    It doesn't works for me :s

    For everyone who has this problem: Make sure you're on version 0.2 of Biome. The set-selection and clear-selection commands were not available yet in 0.1. If /biome responds with the command list, that means you used an unknown command or incorrectly.

    Just how large are the areas? Biome saves locations as a set of (x, z) coordinates to make lookups fast.

    It's OP only.
