[1.16] Add custom features to a custom biome


Recommended Posts

I have a custom biome, and I want to add custom features to it. however, using ".withFeature()", in the biome generation settings isn't working, because the biome gets initialized before the features does, giving me a Null Pointer Exception


Biome (gets initialized through a deferred register):

@Mod.EventBusSubscriber(modid = Main.MOD_ID, bus = Mod.EventBusSubscriber.Bus.MOD)
public class ModBiomes {

    public static final DeferredRegister<Biome> BIOMES = DeferredRegister.create(ForgeRegistries.BIOMES, Main.MOD_ID);

    public static final RegistryObject<Biome> EFFETE_FOREST = BIOMES.register("effete_forest", Maker::EffeteForest);

    public static void setupBiomes(FMLCommonSetupEvent event) {
        event.enqueueWork(() ->
            setupBiome(EFFETE_FOREST.get(), BiomeManager.BiomeType.WARM, 10000000, //1000
                Type.NETHER, Type.FOREST, Type.HOT, Type.DRY)

    private static void setupBiome(Biome biome, BiomeManager.BiomeType type, int weight, Type... types) {
        RegistryKey<Biome> key = RegistryKey.getOrCreateKey(
            Objects.requireNonNull(ForgeRegistries.BIOMES.getKey(biome), "Biome registry name was null")

        BiomeDictionary.addTypes(key, types);
        BiomeManager.addBiome(type, new BiomeManager.BiomeEntry(key, weight));

    private static class Maker {

        private static Biome EffeteForest() {
            BiomeGenerationSettings genset = new BiomeGenerationSettings.Builder()
                .withFeature(GenerationStage.Decoration.VEGETAL_DECORATION, ModFeatures.EFFETE_STEM_CONFIG)
              	// Above line gives a null pointer exception since EFFETE_STEM_CONFIG hasn't been initialized yet
                .withFeature(GenerationStage.Decoration.VEGETAL_DECORATION, Features.RED_MUSHROOM_NETHER)
                .withFeature(GenerationStage.Decoration.VEGETAL_DECORATION, Features.NETHER_SPROUTS)
                .withFeature(GenerationStage.Decoration.UNDERGROUND_ORES, Features.ORE_GOLD_NETHER)
                .withFeature(GenerationStage.Decoration.UNDERGROUND_ORES, Features.ORE_QUARTZ_NETHER)

            MobSpawnInfo mobspawn = new MobSpawnInfo.Builder()
                .withSpawner(EntityClassification.MONSTER, new MobSpawnInfo.Spawners(EntityType.CAT, 4, 2, 4))

            BiomeAmbience ambience = new BiomeAmbience.Builder()

            return new Biome.Builder()



Feature (gets initialized in Common setup):

@Mod.EventBusSubscriber(modid = Main.MOD_ID, bus = Mod.EventBusSubscriber.Bus.MOD)
public class ModFeatures {

    public static ConfiguredFeature<?, ?> EFFETE_STEM_CONFIG;

    public static void setup(FMLCommonSetupEvent e) {
        EFFETE_STEM_CONFIG = register("effete_stem_feature",
                    (new BlockClusterFeatureConfig.Builder(
                        new SimpleBlockStateProvider(ModBlocks.EFFETE_STEM.get().getDefaultState()),
                        new EffeteColumnBlockPlacer(1, 2)
                    Placement.COUNT_MULTILAYER.configure(new FeatureSpreadConfig(5)).square()

    private static <FC extends IFeatureConfig> ConfiguredFeature<FC, ?> register(String key, ConfiguredFeature<FC, ?> configuredFeature) {
        return Registry.register(WorldGenRegistries.CONFIGURED_FEATURE, key, configuredFeature);

You should register your features inside their apposite registry event. Also, there is another version of the BiomeGenerationSettings.Builder#withFeature method that takes in a Supplier<ConfiguredFeature<?, ?>>. You can look here to see an example on registering custom biomes with their custom features: https://github.com/Beethoven92/BetterEndForge/blob/master/src/main/java/mod/beethoven92/betterendforge/BetterEnd.java

    • Hello, I am experiencing the following error once an hour and sometimes two hours, does anyone know what might cause the crash? Is it a mod that is causing it or is there a mod that can fix that?

    • Merging Minecraft modpacks is simpler than it sounds. Just think of it as combining ingredients from two recipes into one. If you're not sure how to start, there's a handy tutorial on YouTube titled "How to combine mods in Curseforge Minecraft" that breaks it down step by step. It's like following a cooking show but for Minecraft mods. And if you need more help, the Reddit's r/feedthebeast are like the community kitchen where everyone shares their cooking tips.

    • Tried panorama_screens and some other mod, but it still gives me the same error : https://pastebin.com/CG2hUbcY What is the problem exactly ? Is there a problem with the model of one of the items of Clockwork ?
    • Been having this crash report on a pack I'm running with some friends. No idea what's causing it, was able to replicate this crash by making a new modpack with nothing but mekanism in it https://pastebin.com/RNQLVEP4 Mekanism definitely isn't the problem I've just identified it as having items that create this rendering error below is a further crash report, same error just not mekanism  https://pastebin.com/D05EQW5U Any help would be greatly appreciated
