Unlike vanilla minecraft whose map of biomes determine temperature and rainfall, vintagecraft goes the opposite way by letting the biomes be determined by a map temperature and map of rainfall. This is one reason why Vintagecraft is not very compatible with other mods.

In return Vintagecraft gains the ability of much greater biome diversity and completely smooth transitions between biomes. All plants, trees and flowers are generated by min-max values of temperature, rainfall, elevation... and so on.

Rock Types
