Part 24: Route 216 and 217

Part 24

For this post I'll be combining both Route 216 and 217 because they are both very similar. This is the first route to have a cold biome.

Setting the Cold Taiga biome changes the colour of the grass to a more bluish hue. It also makes the water freeze.

The entrance to the route from Mt Coronet is perfectly leveled so the lowest point of the route does not go below sea level.

'/weather rain' makes it snow. This is a snow covered route in the DS game so it would be appropriate to do the same here.

Snow. Some snow had to be placed manually such as underneath trees.

Time to stop the snow as a new route needs to be built. Route 217 is a very open route. There are very little obstructions.

There are two houses on the way. In the DS game you can get slowed down a lot by the varying differences in snow depth. It's difficult to map it out and replicate the effect here in Minecraft so we are going without unless I find a way.


Now we ca let it snow.

Looking down on Route 216

Unfortunately the grass cannot be grown in snow covered grass or have snow fall on them making their presence quite prominent.
