Minecraft 1.4.5 – More Biomes Mod

More Biomes Mod – Explore new areas and biomes, and gaze upon the beauties that this mod has to offer!

More Biomes Mod – What is it?

Ah, the beauties of the Minecraft biomes. Each one is different from one another, and there are no two biomes that have the same shape and size. How can this possibly get any better? Well I can tell you how. All you need to do is add even more biomes with the More Biomes mod! The name suits its purpose so well! Anyways, this mod adds approximately 16 new biomes that you can go about exploring, some more noticeable that others, and others blending right in with the stock biomes. Here is the list of biomes and a brief description of what they look like:

  • High Snow Mountains
    • Enormous mountains that are covered with snow, stone, dirt, waterfalls, and trees.
    • Some call it paradise. I call it cold.
  • High Desert Mountains
    • Enormous mountains that are covered with sand and occasional stone.
  • Savanna
    • A dry version of a normal forest type biome.
    • Has a different type of tree called the acacai tree.
    • Lion King!
  • Glacier
    • Mountains covered with snow blocks and ice.
  • Rainforest
    • Similar to a jungle, but holds normal trees.
    • Breathtaking view because of the lush foliage along with the generated mountains/hills.
  • Birch Forest
    • A forest with birch trees only. Yeah that’s it. Birch trees.
  • Pine Forest
    • Perfect for folks that love places like Montana and West Virginia.
    • Tall trees that give this biome an “everglade” feel.
  • Green Swamp
    • A swamp biome that has a green hue.
  • Redwood Forest
    • A biome that houses taller, and more rounded trees.
  • Bamboo Forest
    • A biome full of bamboo.
    • This is not sugar cane, but actual bamboo.
  • Highlands
    • Extreme hills combined with a forest biome. Nice!
  • Dead Forest
    • Post apocalyptic biome with dead trees everywhere.
    • Sky turns brown once you enter this biome.
  • Tropical Forest
    • Vacation time! Sit back and relax in a tropical habitat.
    • Palm trees everywhere.
  • Autumn Forest
    • Fall. Enough said.
    • Brown trees.
  • Tundra
    • A flat biome full of nothing but snow and ice.
  • Field
    • A plains biome with big trees.
All in all, this mod is a great mod for anyone who would like to spice their experience up with more biomes. Now for some screenhsots of the mod.

So you want to install a mod for Minecraft? Well, thanks to this guide, it’s easy as 1-2-3! Before we start however, here are some precautions you might want to read:

  1. Be sure to get WinRAR or 7-zip. It’s a necessity for installing mods.
  2. Be sure to backup your “minecraft.jar” before doing anything! We don’t want you to have to force update now, do we?
  3. Be sure to delete META-INF inside “minecraft.jar”.
  4. Be sure to install the mods listed in the yellow box below first. They are usually mods required for the mod you want to install to work.
  5. The Forge and Modloader installation instructions only apply if the yellow box below states that the mod requires either Modloader of Forge. If the yellow box does not, use the “Old-Fashioned” instructions.
  6. The Forge and Modloader instructions only apply to the mod itself. Any mod in the yellow box below must be installed using the “old-fashioned” instructions.

Minecraft 1.6.4 and 1.6.2 changed the way mods are to be installed now. So much, that it’s best to have a full blown guide page for this, rather than quick instructions. Click the link below for the guide:

Here’s the steps to installing that mod you want, or how to install Forge, Modloader, :

  2. Open up Windows Explorer.

  4. Navigate to “Roaming”. (Skip this step if you can’t see a roaming folder.)

  6. Open up a folder called “bin”.
  7. Right click the file called “minecraft” or “minecraft.jar”.
  8. Select open with.
  9. Open with WinRAR.
  10. Open up the mod. (be sure to extract the mod first.)
  11. If there are no specific instructions included with the mod, it is safe to assume that you drag all the files in.
  12. Be sure to delete META-INF. I can’t stress this enough.

So you have a Mac computer? The Mac Operating System has a very different framework compared to its Windows counterpart, so the installation instructions will be different. Here’s a video to help you out:

So you noticed this mod requires Minecraft Forge or Modloader, correct? Installing Forge and Modloader mods are just as easy as installing mods the old-fashioned way! In fact, it’s even easier once you get passed the main part Here’s the steps:

  1. Install Minecraft Forge, Modloader, or any mod dependency listed in the yellow box below using the “Old-Fashioned” installation instructions to the left.
  2. Start Minecraft up. Close Minecraft afterwards.
  3. Navigate to the “.minecraft” folder. Once you open it, you will notice that there is a “mods” folder. If there isn’t a mods folder to be seen, create one.
  4. Place the mod inside the “mods” folder.
  5. Open Minecraft up and have fun!

For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder.  Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!
