Spoiler:

--------------------------------------------------
Download V1.51 for Minecraft 1.1
Recommended for most users. Requires ModLoader.

Download ExtraBiomes Classic for Minecraft 1.1
No new blocks, trees, and certain biomes. Designed to feel like vanilla Minecraft. No ModLoader needed.

Download for Minecraft Server 1.1 (SMP)
SMP version for minecraft-server.jar, clients require an ExtraBiomes installation. No new trees, blocks, and certain biomes, yet.
--------------------------------------------------

ExtraBiomes adds far more interest to your Minecraft world by adding 22 new biomes. Most of these biomes consist of their own special flowers, soils, and trees. This mod features:
22 new biomes,
New flowers, soils, and trees,
New terrain noise generation system for much more varied and epic terrain, and caves,
An alternative version called "Classic" which adds no new blocks, trees, and certain biomes,

It has been downloaded over 25,000 times, viewed an estimate of over 150,000 times on YouTube, and seen on iPodMail, iJevin, CavemanFilms, and ChimneySwift11.

If you wish to share, and discuss world seeds found using ExtraBiomes, please do so here


For texture pack artists, here's a chart put together by HarpSeal which demonstrates the position of biomes within the .png color charts. It's not nearly as accurate as it should be, but it should at least give you something to work off of. Soon, ExtraBiomes should have custom Green Hills color charts. But this is pretty good for now.

And a quick note of thanks:

Note for modpack creators, I am not currently accepting requests for modpack inclusion. Sorry.

Warning: This will 'scramble' your worlds biomes, causing a massive climactic shift. It won't affect your seed, but it will the biomes. This is recommended for new worlds only. Removing the mod, though, will restore your world to normal.

Yes, these are compatible with Strongholds, villages, wolfs, ect.

Modloader not required.

ExtraBiomes was, and is developed using the Minecraft Coder Pack (MCP). Without it, I'm 92% sure that this mod wouldn't exist. Please follow Searge (founder of the MCP project) on his Twitter @SeargeDP. He shares a lot of development news and awesome stuff there. Plus, if he gets 1000 followers, he will begin to release versions of MCP for Minecraft weekly snapshots. This will make WAY MORE mods update faster, and be usable on the awesome snapshots. Please, if you love Minecraft, mods, and the support of awesome people, follow him! You wouldn't just be helping me, but tons of other mods, like the water shader mod, GLSL shaders mod, and many more.

TODO:
Make saplings for custom trees.
Create a fertilizer that can grow my custom grasses.
Enable texture pack artists to develop custom colors for Green Hills.
Add items and blocks to creative inventory. Next update.

Excellent ideas and it seems done pretty well. I don't suppose you plan to work in a server version do you? Anything to spice up the boring terrain of 1.0! Is it possible to rework the old beach code back into mix as part of your mod?

I'm going to attempt making a server version of ExtraBiomes when I have the time, but no guaranties on it's success.

Tried out this mod on a new world and took a little tour.  I don't think I've seen all the new biomes included in this mod yet but the ones I've seen look great in Minecraft and look like they belong in the regular game.  Nice to see more color and variety added to the world and the diversity helps make it feel more like an actual world being created.  :Diamond: and a +1 for this.

It doesnt mess with the existing biomes, does it?

I really like the idea, but in the screenshots the glacier really look messed up.

Anyway, great mod! +1

---------------edit----------

Is it easy to change the height of the trees? I love the "bigtrees" mod, and the idea of taller trees that realy look like real life.

omg ive always wanted a mod for this but all the other ones are look nothin compared to this! 1+ for you ;) by the way could you PLEASE bring back beaches, i never got to see one and they look really cool, even if you just copied the code from on of the old codes (i think 1.7.3 was the latest one, but yer whenever the beaches were still in the game). then this mod would be even better.

Amazing, in a world which you had explored a lot the biomes were repetative! This is what I've been looking for. Shouldn't the Glacier be made from Ice? Still Amazing!

Updated to V1.1 to include installation tutorials for Mac and Windows. It really should've had that in the first place.

Holy shit this is awesome :)

Like the edition of Glacier.
Just on that note, could you add more to it?
Say 3 layers of ice and 1 layer of snow?

But apart from that, its awesome

I'm going to download a 1.7.3 version of MCP, and try to convert over the beaches. No excitement please, this may fail horribly.

For the poll, it would be useful to know what sorts of things you would plan to add.
