On this page you could read how the plugin expanded over time. Starting as a single player mod for Minecraft Alpha that could only modify the biome size it grew to what is it now. The plugin has been abandoned two times, but always some other author took over the project (and renamed it). Today, Terrain Control is maintained by multiple people, who are keeping it up to date with the latest Minecraft versions.

Terrain Control

Back to top

Around October 2011 Khoorn renamed the old PhoenixTerrainMod to Terrain Control. When Terrain Control 2.0 was released around March 2012, single player support was re-added.

2.7.0 for Spigot 1.8.3 and Forge 1.8.0

  • Updated to Spigot 1.8.3. Spigot 1.8.0 is no longer supported.
  • Changed to biome generator to support grouping of biomes.
  • Old worlds are now automatically switched to the biome mode BeforeGroups, which simulates the old biome generator (Minecraft 1.0 - 1.6.4).
  • Biomes can now have different sizes and rarities depending on whether they are spawned as a normal biome, isle biome or border biome.
  • Updated the default settings to match Minecraft 1.8. (There are still a few small differences.)
  • Added a new resource called SurfacePatch, to place patches of something at the surface. The swamp biome uses this resource in the default settings.
  • The NonSolid keyword can now be used to check for any nonsolid block.
  • Added ExtrudeMode and ExtrudeThroughBlocks to BO3s, used to repeat the first or last layer of a BO3 until it hits the ground/ceiling.
  • Worlds called test will work again.
  • Custom trees (BO2 or BO3) with a 2x2 trunk are now rotated correctly, so that the trunk aligns with the four saplings.

  • Forge version: fixed calling events like DecorateBiomeEvent with the wrong coordinates.
  • Forge version: fixed help text not appearing next to generator type selection button in the singleplayer world creation screen.

  • Forge version: fixed ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException in biome colorizer when using a high temperature and wetness.
  • Fixed settings MinMoisture and MaxMoisture, designed for BiomeMode: OldGenerator, having a subtle effect other biome modes.

  • Fixed ReplacedBlocks not working in virtual biomes.

2.6.0 for Minecraft 1.7.5

  • Biome inheritance
    • If a biome has a value for BiomeExtends, it will copy all missing settings from the biome listed in BiomeExtends.

    • Extended biome id limit to 1023.
    • Biomes with ids 256 - 1023 cannot be saved by Minecraft, so they need to have a ReplaceToBiomeName setting that replaces the biome to a biome in the 0 - 255 id range.

    • Added support to reference modded blocks by name.
    • Deprecated block ids, they will be autoconverted to block names.

  • Various other fixes and improvements
    • /tc reload code rewritten, reloading should be more reliable.
    • All block spawn conditions now accept block data.

    • Vanilla biomes can no longer have a ReplaceToBiomeName setting.
    • Fixed the logging settings in TerrainControl.ini being broken since 1.7/Log4j.

Warning: extremely experimental! Don't use this on live servers!

  • Now there is two bo2 directories : GlobalObjects - store in plugin dir. and WorldObjects store in world dir.
  • All objects in WorldObjects directory works like in 2.2 versions if resources with bo2 have "UseWorld" word.

  • Added new object setting - spawnAboveGround - this will try spawn object on solid block. Useful if you want spawn some thing in ocean floor. Defaul value = false
  • Added new object setting - spawnUnderGround - this will try spawn object under solid block. Object height will be random from spawnElevationMin to spawnElevationMax, sure if this settings less than highest solid block. Default value = false
  • Changed sapling settings and now it is resource. Syntax = tree resource instead first argument. If first argument = "All" this resource will work with any sapling types. Else first argument must contain sapling type ( sapling block data). Does not work with data = 4 ( bukkit limitation :( ). You may add different resources for different saplings types.
  • Changes block replace setting for solve some conflicts. Examples is in config file. Old settings will be automatically updated.

  • You can now override BO2 settings, use object_name(dig=False;underFill=False;Tree=False) instead of object_name.
  • ModeBiome and ModeTerrain (WorldConfig) have been renamed to BiomeMode and TerrainMode.

Phoenix Terrain Mod

Back to top

Somewhere around Minecraft Beta 1.4, R-T-B renamed the project to Phoenix Terrain Mod (see the forum thread). I couldn't find a changelog for this versions. Because of a death in his family when Minecraft Beta 1.8 was released he did not have enough time to update it to the completely new terrain generator of 1.8. But luckily Khoorn had the already ported the project to be a Bukkit plugin (R-T-B had already created a Bukkit mod) some time ago, and he updated the Bukkit version to Beta 1.8. Here is a link to the original thread of the Bukkit port and here to the project on BukkitDev. Below is a changelog of the Bukkit plugin version.
