The world generates in a logical heat map. Need snow or a desert? Travel North or South until you find it!

In this pack, the world generates as a logical heatmap which means that if you move in the north-south direction you'll walk through different temperature and humidity zones (just like IRL, but it wraps around, since it's infinite). If you need a desert, for example, walk north or south until you end up in a hot biome. Then you can walk east or west in this temperature band until you find a desert, if you haven't already.

Two similar zones are about 10000 blocks apart (confirmation needed)

Temperature levels change by the Z axis, going Warm, Hot, Warm, Cool, Icy, Cool, then repeating. The humidity levels change by the X axis, going Average, Wet, Average, Dry, then repeating.

This table shows all the temperature and humidity combinations.

Wet Average Dry
Hot Hot, Wet Hot, Average Hot, Dry
Warm Warm, Wet Warm, Average Warm, Dry
Cool Cool, Wet Cool, Average Cool, Dry
Icy Icy, Wet Icy, Average Icy, Dry

The player always spawns in a warm average biome.
