So, I started learning how to mod, and while testing a could make a new kingdom, simple by replacing some assets from Rayas, nothing fancy. I noticed that for more changes I would need to learn a little more, so I thought about modding a biome as it would be way easier.
Looking for the default biomes to learn from them, I noticed that we already have the arctic biome in game. After I learned how to unlock it, I thought about giving it as a mod here.
But I saw that Brad told in one topic that we can do whatever we want with content already in game, as long as it is not with something still not available in a normal gameplay, like using the bunnies race or, in my case, releasing the arctic biome.
But I tested a few maps in it and it was super boring, I really hope that they change it, and change a LOT. Right now it is just a white version of the temperate biome, with even more trees and smooth, taller mountains… Really.
Then I continued my learning and changed that biome to something that I liked more, with a lot of water, small islands/icebergs, and really steep mountains. Also a few small changes in the vegetation, with less tree variety(almost all pine) and only at low heights, and more frost flowers.
Considering its terrain generation changed, would it be ok to release it here?
Besides all that, I noticed a few pathfind problems while playing in it, sometimes they try to run into a lake instead of going around, I think because the terrain base generation would have ground there, but after my changes it is much more fragmented, so they try to walk where now it is a lake. Maybe?
