⚙️ Data Packs
The data pack system provides a way for players to further customize their Minecraft experience. Data packs can be used to override or add new advancements, dimensions, functions, loot tables, predicates, item modifiers, recipes, structures, tags, damage types, world generation settings, and biomes without any code modification.
Biome Makeover is primarily configured via Data Packs. While this does add some complexity, it also allows for more customization and decreased development time.
Biome Makeover does have a small configuration file, but it will only be used when there is no other solution for configuration.
