For Minetest 5.0 and above

How do I install this?

This is a mod to help with mod/game development for Minetest. It adds a command (“findbiome”) to find a biome nearby and teleport you to it and another command (“listbiomes”) to list biomes.

The biome finding functionality is also available to mod developers (see the readme file).

Note: To find biomes in v6 mapgen, you need to activate the biomeinfo mod as well.



Do you recommend this mod?

  • Exactly what I needed

    The mod's exactly what I needed to test making a new biome

  • wow (not quite there yet but wow)

    At the moment the mod only seems to see, list, find and teleport to variations on tundra and taiga. You could be standing in the middle of a savanna (default) or right next to it and it won't see it, same for the swamp (mod swamp). But it does list the location when found and teleports you there. One imagines the short list of biomes it works on is a minor to moderate issue to fix?

    I get how modders would love it, but it should also be helpful for server maintainers. If you know you have a biome mod running but haven been flying for an hour trying to find an example.

    Which privilege is needed to run the commands and could the answer to that be in the readme file?

  • Must have for biome developers.

    Have been using this mod extensively since discovery. Thank you very much.

  • Save time testing biomes

    Nice mod for developing biomes and saves a lot of time. Thanks!

  • Does what it's supposed to, but...

    On ContentDB, it's tagged with "Library/API," but it has no externally accessible functions. In my opinion, one of those things should change. Other than that, it works great. I actually submitted a PR that makes the find_biome function global (and nothing else).
