Biomes O' Plenty Wiki
Amber This page describes a removed feature.
This feature used to be in the mod but has since been removed.
Notes: Removed in Minecraft 1.13.2

The Biome Finder is able to find specified biomes with a detection radius of 13045 blocks (proof is in the gallery).


A Biome Finder requires four Ender Amethysts and one Terrestrial Artifact.


Crafting recipe for the Biome Finder


A Biome Finder requires biome essence to function. A specific Biome Essence is crafted with the Biome Finder to create a Fixed Biome Finder for the biome specified by the essence. (i.e. a Desert biome essence will create a desert Biome Finder.) To change the biome, craft the Biome Finder with another essence. Make sure to remember to use the Biome Essence, or else it wont work.

Fixed Biome Finder

A desert biome essence used to craft a desert biome finder.


  • A standard biome essence (lacking any identification of a biome) cannot be used to craft a fixed Biome Finder.
  • If a biome is not in range the console will display the message: Not found, maybe [Biome] is too far away.

A Biome Finder in use


When it was introduced, it was called Biome Radar, and had a completely different texture, resembling a real green radar. It also had a different crafting recipe. In 1.8, it was renamed to Biome Finder, texture was changed and the crafting recipe was also changed. In 1.13.2 and upwards, it was removed completely.
