Desert in Minecraft

The desert is an expansive and uncommon biome that is mostly filled with sand and its variants. It is one of the most inhospitable biomes in the Overworld. This biome is quite barren with the only vegetation being cacti and dead bushes.

Description


Desert biomes are warm and barren biomes that are quite expansive, there is very little vegetation present in this biome. The surface is entirely made of sand with sandstone generated below it to prevent the sand from falling into the caves below. Players can find lava ponds and sometimes water can also generate if the altitude is low enough.


Structures such as desert temples, villages, fossils, pillager outposts, and desert wells can be found in desert biomes. Deserts are more likely to generate in areas with high erosion values, which means that the terrain in which they generate is generally flat but with occasional hills. Despite the structures, survival in deserts can still be difficult if one does not bring sufficient resources, as the desert has virtually no resources of its own.

Mob Spawns


The only non-hostile mobs that spawn in the wild are rabbits, villagers, cows, cats, and sheep can spawn in villages only. Hostile mobs that spawn here include spiders, skeletons, creepers, slimes, husks, zombies, endermen, witches, zombie villagers, spiders, and zombie jockeys.

Conclusion
