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

The Xeric Shrubland biome is made up of small hills of sand and dirt with grass, flowers, dead shrubs, and cacti littered about.


The Xeric Shrubland is a type of desert biome. The ground is made up of sand, grass blocks, and acacia leaves. There seems to be a fair number of small water lakes.


Small Acacia trees and Cacti may occur here, alongside a range of scrub: Tiny Cacti, Dead Bushes, Grass, and Bromeliads.

Mobs & NPCs[]

Template:Passive mob do not seem to spawn here. Villages spawn in this biome.


Survival in this biome is somewhat easy. Trees and farm plants are easy to grow because of the abundance of shrubs, grass, dirt, and water. Farm animals do not spawn even on the grass, so if animals are desired they must be brought from adjacent biomes. Hills are generally too small to build a house on, therefore, it is difficult to see an enemy coming, or indeed rush them or run away.
