You might have read that there are new biomes coming up in the next minecraft version. I am not sure if existing words will suddenly have new biomes, but I do not think so. Most likely only newly generated terrain will have new biomes, but what is certain is that new biomes come with differently shaped landscapes. I have concrete plans how to get them into the game:
- Reset the darklands
- re-create the “mint” copy of the empire that we use to reset lots. This means that newly reset lots will then have the new features. I will also reset all currently empty lots. There is a chance that we will have more terrain ruptures (clear cut lines between lots), but those will be something we lived with and will have to in the future, even if someone decides to flatten their lot etc.
- I will most likely not do anything in the kingdom and other worlds.
- Unless there are important changes in the nether, I will not reset that one, either.
Of course I have no idea when the new version will come out. This is just a heads-up on what will happen to the map since those new features are discussed on reddit and other forums.
