I need to change some biomes on my Minecraft server, but I'm on Ubuntu and all the biome editors I can find are for Windows. How can I edit the biomes of my world on Linux/Ubuntu?

    Can they run on Wine?

  • Is the hosting server command-line only, or do you have graphical access too? Mar 6 '13 at 0:52

Just install WorldEdit, which will work cross-platform, and modify biomes in-game with the biome brush.

  • I can't work out how I modify biomes? How do I do it? And, ideally, I'd like to do it on a big scale.

  • Don't worry, I found out how to do it. But I don't think it's worked. I selected an area, did //setbiome forest_hills but it's still all snowy.

  • @schtocker You'll need to log out and in again to see the change, and changing biome won't remove snow (just change future weather and leaf/grass colour)

  • Don't worry, I found that the //thaw command will remove snow. Thanks very much!

If you have time, disk space, a Windows iso, and a powerful enough computer, you can try to run Windows in a virtual machine, like Virtual Box. This tutorial explains how to setup what the community calls a VM (Virtual Machine). Don't forget to read the description!
