The Bog Biome is a flat, swampy land covered in mud and tall, thin trees. Slimes can also be found above ground in the Bog. A variety of plants are generated here, such as Poison Ivy, Koru, Bushes, Blue Milk Caps and Flat Mushrooms, but almost no flowers spawn here, apart from Dandilions and Poppies.
Like most other swamps, as biomes, bog can be separated into two parts: in the submerged part and the ground part.
The land is flat (like most other swamps). The biome is made of red grass, and is covered with dying Dark Oak and Birch trees, some which spawn with no distance apart, Wheat Grass and Shrubs. Single blocks of Oak Leaves also spawn. The biome uses Loamy Dirt & Loamy Grass
The submerged part is immersed in water more than 5 blocks deep, The ground floor consists primarily of mud, although there are some portions of dirt and clay. Only algae grows in the water. Some trees such as the mainland can grow, but only in addition to land part of the water is deeper than one block.
Survival in this biome is easy. Large quantities of wood, and the ability to obtain seeds from grass makes this biome easily survivable. Plus, the mud can provide the tools and armor and mudballs can be thrown at enemy mobs. However, many enemies will attack the player even in the day because of the large trees blocking the sunlight. When building shelters in water, players are safe from mobs because they cannot spawn on water. Be careful because Poisonous Liquid Pools spawn in Bogs as well.
Interesting Strategies Edit
Survival will be rather peaceful in this biome, just make sure you avoid the mud pits around water; Once you fall in, depending where you land it may be very hard to get out. However this is a VERY good place for a floating home. Build your floating place above a mud/water pit, and make stairs to your home, but block off the bottom block by placing fences and a fence gate around it. The mobs with a smarter AI may crowd around the fence, but the others will simply fall down into the mud. Summary: Floating bases ROCK here.
- Bog, in real life, has mud that accumulates peat deposit of dead plant material, often mosses, and in most cases, Sphagnum moss (which is commonly known as "peat moss"). There are several types of peatlands, but this mod corresponds only to the trembling bogs.
- In previous versions of the mod, the bog has less land and are much more in flux and is less livable.
- Water color imitates general bogs muddy swamp water. Colors Sky is purely fantesist, though.
