I personally thank that highlands is the best with great generation and biomes but this is what the advantages of them are in my opinion:
Highlands: great for survival gameplay
Biomes o plenty: great for explorers who want loads of biomes
Extrabiomesxl: has the most intagreated mod support

What do you think?

Edit*remember that these are my opinions and that doesn't mean there right.

Biomes o plenty: http://www.minecraft...-o-plenty-v051/
Extrabiomesxl: http://www.minecraft...abiomesxl-3130/
Highlands: http://www.minecraft...-and-more-v125/

Thanks

I particularly like ExtraBiomesXL. Was one of my first mods I tried out.

Biomes O' Plenty and Highlands because they are compatible together.

My answer is: Yes.

I use all three, and I disabled the copy/similar biomes.

I have highlands stuff generating in the normal worlds I make, using the config.

I love them.

Use Id resolver
or go to ".minecraft"
the go to the folder config
just open the configs of the mods then change the
ids
thats the way

The only real factor for me is that one of the Biomes O' Plenty devs is arogant, condescending, and rude.

Pretty much why me and several other server admins have stoped using their mod.

Extrabiomesxl is what we usually go with.

From Highlands forum:

"ExtraBiomesXL and Biomes o' Plenty:
Highlands should be compatible with EBXL and Biomes o' Plenty.  If it is not, you will have to change the biome ID's in the settings for whatever mods you have installed, so they don't conflict.  Highlands uses biome ID's 150 – 193 by default.  Make sure you have enabled “Use Highlands Biomes in Default Worlds” in Highlands's settings."

The Biomes o' Plenty's redwoods are weird, so I use ExtrabiomesXL for the redwoods.

A double resolution texture pack that stays faithful to the original Minecraft textures.

That's a contentious question.  People can be really fanboy-ish about their favorite biome pack.  My suggestion is to research what other mods you want to use, because not all are compatible with every biome mod (Though most are.)

I found this thread rather interesting!   I am new to mods, and only knew of BoP until last night.   I have done about 30 different seeds on BoP and have yet to find one that is Jungle and Tropical heavy...  While I love the giant builds, i have no real use for them and am finding a lot of the detailed biomes very laggy!.    I have been looking for information on how to edit BoP and remove some of the biomes I don't want, but haven't found anything useful yet.


My question for all of you is this... Out of the three biome mods mentioned in this thread... which one has more jungle and tropical seeds???

I use BoP & EbXL. In config files you may set off thouse biomes, you don't want. For BoP in <biomegen.cfg> in section [biomes to generate] set "false" (w/o quotes). In EbXL do the same.
Sorry for bad english.

I personally think BoP is ugly and garish most of the time and the other times it looks like vanilla minecraft. Extrabiomes I only played because the alternative was so bad. Highlands is definitely the best one. I mean what do you want in a biome mod? You want nice looking scenery thats what. Nobody else designed trees anywhere near as natural and pretty as sdj64 did, and what he has done with the landscape is equally impressive. I wouldnt let any of the competitors' biomes into my highlands worlds ever.
