Ignacio’s Biomes (ABYSS Update)
This is a biome mod focused on being subtle and in-line with something that might be in the game. These biomes are more naturalistic than alien but still have a chance of being strange.
What this mod adds:
Beaches - Palm trees will now spawn on the sand of tropical planets
Alpine Biome a.k.a. the Defrosted Biome - This is a copy of the Frozen biome but with all the snow removed from the assets. It is more likely to have clear weather here than the vanilla Lush biome.
Dried Lush Biome a.k.a Wasteland - A barren biome with forests of dead trees instead of cacti. Looks kind of like a Fallout game.
1.0 Lush Biome - The original version of the Lush biome from the initial release of the game, added back in.
Plains Biome and Meadow Biome - Smoother terrain, extra tall grass and no trees. The Meadow variant of this biome has lots of flowers and a few trees.
Savana Biome - A marriage between the BarrenHQ biome and the Lush biome. Tall, patchy grass, dry looking trees and lots of rocks. Sand storms can occur in this biome.
Scorched Barren Biome - A Barren biome that has turned superheated. It has both Barren plants and scorched spires.
Ice Spikes Biome - A frozen biome without any trees in it and towering ice spikes in their place
The Mishmash Lush Biome - Takes the Landmarks (trees) and DetailObjects (grass/small rocks) of the Lush biome and randomly fills in the Objects section with the Objects of another biome, creating thousands of combinations that still look lush but could have all sorts of things in them.
Big Things Biomes - These are variants of the other biomes but with trees and such scaled to be twice their original size. Density is reduced to make sure everything looks good and performance isn't affected.
Bonus Object Lists - Planets have a 1/4 chance of having another object list layered on top that would add a couple of sparse objects to a biome to make it more distinct. Possible options are Big Flowers, Cave Plants, Mushrooms, Radioactive Trees, Scorched Spires and ancient Standing Stones. Not all bonus object lists apply to all biomes. For example, you will never see flowers on a Dead world. You might see a few Scorched Spires though.
If you have any ideas for biomes I could add, let me know!
