I recently had an idea pop in my mind to build a MineCraft world with all the Biomes close by in a short of "Biome Zoo" or "Biome Wheel". The problem is that Im not that familiar with map generators/world generators beyond what you can do in MCEdit. So I was wondering if I could get some suggestions/recommendations on programs I could use to make a map similiar to what I have shown below. Each biome wedge would be naturally spawned and would meld with the biomes next to it (no sudden chunk changes or drop offs, beaches next to oceans, etc, etc). Any Suggetions or ideas?
Copy and paste the terrain you want to use with MCEdit, probably into a void world. For changing the actual biomes, I'm quite fond of Biome Painter, though you may need to tweak its biome listings to get it to function with 1.7 content. Pretty sure you can change the biomes in MCEdit as well, but I find Biome Painter particularly easy to use.
