If you like this addon but something is missing or is not working as you want, you can always submit an Issue request or get a support in Discord BentoBox icon

How to use

  1. Place the addon jar in the addons folder of the BentoBox plugin
  2. Restart the server
  3. The addon will create a data folder and inside the folder will be a config.yml and an example biomes.yml
  4. Edit the config.yml and biomes.yml files how you want. The biomes.yml is for importing only.
  5. Restart the server


The config.yml has following sections:

  • Advanced Menu: if this is true, users will be able to choose all options how the biome can be updated.
  • Default Type: this allows to choose default selected type that will be available when users opens Biome GUI. Valid values are 'ISLAND', 'CHUNK' and 'SQUARE'
  • Default Size: this allows to set default value that will be set when Biome GUI is opened. It must be integer larger then 0.
  • Reset Biomes: if this is true, on owner change, addon will reset biome on whole island to default biome, if user does not have biomes.set permission.
  • Timeout: this allows to set some delay before user can change biome on his island again.
  • biomes-visibility: this variable allows to choose which biomes users can see in Biomes GUI. Valid values are 'ALL', 'DEPLOYED' , 'ACCESSIBLE' and 'TOGGLEABLE'
  • disabled-gamemodes: this allows to disable Biomes Addon in certain GameModes. To disable GameMode just need to add new line with "-" in front of GameMode name, f.e.:
  - BSkyBlock


This file contains all necessary information about default biomes. If you change values in biomes.yml, then to apply them, you must run /bsb biomes import or /acid biomes import.

If you want to force an overwrite of biomes via an import, add the overwrite option to the end of the import command. Note that you must import biomes into both BSkyBlock and AcidIsland separately.

User commands

  • /is biomes: This method opens GUI that allows to change biome on User island.
  • /is biomes help: Show help for all the commands
  • /is biomes info <biome>: This command returns information about given biome, like cost and necessary level.
  • /is biomes set <biome> [<type>] [<size>]: This command allows to change biome on island without opening GUI. If prarameters < type> and < size> are not provided, command uses default values from addon config.

There are a few admin commands and more being written. The main biomes admin command is /bsb biomes or /acid biomes. Use

  • /bsbadmin biomes: To open Admin GUI.
  • /bsbadmin biomes help : Show help for all the commands
  • /bsbadmin biomes import [overwrite]: import biomes from biomes.yml
  • /bsbadmin biomes add <biome>: add a new biome what can be edited via GUI or biomes edit command. Biome will not be deployed. To do it, you should enable it in GUI or via biomes edit <biome> deployed true command.
  • /bsbadmin biomes set <player> <biome> [<type>] [<size>]: This command works the same as user biome set command, but it is necessary to provide also player, which island biome will be updated.
