Be aware that biomes in Minecraft are defined in a 4x4x4 grid. However, in order to make biomes feel more natural, vanilla warps the biomes visually. The biome overlay shows the "real" position of biomes, while biome blending and the f3 screen show the "warped" position of biomes.

2

Lava and other non-translucent fluids (if the game is modded) are not affected by opacity due to performance and mod compatibility concerns.

Create

The Create submenu lets you make geometric shapes with your active block. Since these shapes are computed mathematically, they can adjust to any angle and transformation, giving you a lot of control over their look. When you 'place' these objects, you can use the gizmo to reposition them and rotate them at arbitrary angles.

Each shape lets you tweak their XZ or XYZ dimensions, as well as having a toggle for individual sliders. In addition to controling rotation using the gizmo, you can also input specific angles for yaw, pitch, and roll in the 'advanced options' dropdown. Plus, there are options for making the shapes hollow, placing only the outer layer.

The current available shapes are:

  • Sphere
  • Cuboid
  • Cylinder
  • Cone
  • Pyramid
