So....I want to change individual biomes. I tried this program and it changed everything on my test world to forest. I've asked a few friends and they can't figure it out, though the description seems to say that you can change JUST the biome youre standing in.
Can it be done?
Can someone post detailed instructions on how to use this program to change individual biomes?
If you remove the 'default=<number>' line from biomes.txt it won't alter any chunks except those specified manually. Then just add manual chunk definitions. You'll need to know the coordinates of the chunks around you:
x=5,10 z=0,5 biome=12
That'll set a square of chunks from 5,0 to 10,5 to Ice Plains, for example. If you need more help getting chunk coordinates, there's detailed instructions in the readme.
But really, for what you're doing it's a lot easier to use the excellent Biome Painter tool. BiomeEdit is more suited for batch/world-wide biome altering.
