What do the Placement entries do?


Recommended Posts

I've been experimenting with making custom biomes lately. I've made custom structures, trees and others. However whenever i need to add a feature to a biome, i need to specify a Placement setting and a config. I have no idea what these are for and what each one does, even after trying to look through them and the calling classes. I think it would be beneficial to know what they do, and which one to use when.

Look at the Placement class implementation for each of them. For example Placement.COUNT_HEIGHTMAP has the AtSurface class implementation. That name tells me that it gives placements at the surface.

This depends on where you want to place things and how you want to place them. A good idea is to look at the vanilla code to see which one it uses when applicable. When not applicable you'll have to deduce which one to use.


I will be posting 1.15.2 modding tutorials on this channel. If you want to be notified of it do the normal YouTube stuff like subscribing, ect.

Forge and vanilla BlockState generator.
