ExtraBiomesXL 1.4.7 is one of Minecraft’s best landscape mods. Instead of altering the game in a noticeable way, ExtraBiomesXL simply allows players to discover expanded terrain features. It adds aesthetic blocks and items that make it easy – and fun – to explore new worlds.


The main feature in ExtraBiomesXL is the list of new biomes available for players to use. There’s the Alpine biome, for example, that looks exactly like you think it would. Snow-shrouded trees cover icy looking mountains. Temperatures are low and the biome is extremely snowy.

Another biome, Autumn Woods, features a classic fall appearance. Trees have turned different shades of orange, yellow, and red, and bushy foliage is crowded around dark blue lakes and rivers. Mushrooms and wolves are also scattered around the world.


There’s also an Extreme Jungle biome, which is very similar to the Jungles biome in vanilla Minecraft. The main difference is that Extreme Jungle is extremely mountainous, giving players new challenges as they try to get around the world.

Glacier is one of the most popular biomes in ExtraBiomesXL. It’s basically a massive mountainous region covered in ice and snow. It’s something completely different than any biome in vanilla Minecraft.

Or, if you’re looking for something a little warmer, try out the Mountain Desert biome, which is a sandy biome filled with massive dunes and mountains. As you can imagine, temperatures in the desert are much warmer than those in other biomes.

From woodlands to tundra to complete wastelands, ExtraBiomesXL has plenty of new worlds to keep you entertained. There are 28 different biomes in ExtraBiomesXL, and each of them is based on a different terrain found somewhere on the planet.

If you’ve grown bored of the biomes offered in vanilla Minecraft, then ExtraBiomesXL is certainly one to  check out. Although it doesn’t alter the gameplay, it does make players want to explore the beautiful worlds around them.
