As the title indicates, is there a command in vanilla Minecraft to change the biome of an area like /fill except for biomes, like so:

/biome ~ ~ ~ ~70 ~-50 ~70 savanna  
  • @Kimatury I don't think so – RudolfJelin May 30 '16 at 15:22
  • Then I think I will still use the old way, by McEdit :) – Kimatuy Jun 1 '16 at 11:36

Short answer:

No, there isn't, and I don't think any mod can do this.

The biomes are generated by the world seed and the current generation rules. So to re-generate a chunk delete the exact save file, then go to a old version (like 1.3), open the world, generate the deleted chunks and then switch to 1.9

The other way is to make the biome look like another biome by replacing the dirt by sand or oak wood to some other wood.

Example of "changing" a forest to a desert:

/fill ~-25 ~-5 ~-25 ~+25 ~+5 ~+25 minecraft:sand 0 replace minecraft:dirt
/fill ~-25 ~-5 ~-25 ~+25 ~+5 ~+25 minecraft:sand 0 replace minecraft:grass
/fill ~-25 ~-5 ~-25 ~+25 ~+5 ~+25 minecraft:air 0 replace minecraft:leaves
/fill ~-25 ~-5 ~-25 ~+25 ~+5 ~+25 minecraft:cactus 0 replace minecraft:wood

Example of "changing" a desert biome to plains:

/fill ~-25 ~-5 ~-25 ~+25 ~+5 ~+25 minecraft:grass 0 replace minecraft:sand
/fill ~-25 ~-5 ~-25 ~+25 ~+5 ~+25 minecraft:stone 0 replace minecraft:sandstone
/fill ~-25 ~-5 ~-25 ~+25 ~+5 ~+25 minecraft:air 0 replace minecraft:cactus  
/fill ~-25 ~-5 ~-25 ~+25 ~+5 ~+25 minecraft:air 0 replace minecraft:dead_bush  

These commands will, if executed, "replace" the surrounding biome with another. You can fiddle with the numbers to get a bigger part filled, and you can set up command blocks getting activated every ~10 seconds (~40 Repeaters) with these commands:

/execute @a ~ ~ ~ fill <yourFillCommand>
  • Thank you, but I already know the replace command. In fact, you don't need anymore to put "minecraft:" or "id:" in the 1.9 version. What I wanted from changing biome was the possibility to "manipulate" Minecraft, like how you can create a witch factory. Thank for the answer :) – Kimatuy Jun 1 '16 at 11:35
  • The forest-to-desert command will generate stacks of cactus which are way too tall. – pppery Sep 1 '18 at 19:23
  • Why no mod that enables it? – l4m2 Oct 2 '18 at 18:06
  • @l4m2 the closest I could find was WorldEdit, which just changes the biome (grass colors, rain/snow), not the blocks. – RudolfJelin Oct 3 '18 at 20:09

If you are on a server, you can use WorldEdit (the plugin).

SPC, short for Single Player Commands, is a mod that allows you to use WorldEdit on singleplayer and LAN.

When you do //biome with WorldEdit, all other articles will be explained.

  • It's actually //biome – Jaconah May 31 '16 at 13:04
  • My bad, let me fix that... – ethanflips May 31 '16 at 19:19

You Can use the program McEdit to change biomes in minecraft

  • OP knows this. See his comment on the question. – Vemonus Nov 30 '16 at 23:18
