The Overworld is the starting location of The Player, and is likely the place where a player will spend most of his/her time in Minecraft.

Overview

The Overworld is one of the three accessible worlds, the others being the Nether and The End. The Overworld is where the main character spends most of their time. The overworld is similar to earth. There are twelve types of biomes in the Overworld, these being the Desert, Jungle, Forest, Mushroom Island, Tundra, Taiga, Plains, Mesa, Savana, Swamp Biomes and the Extreme Hills biome. Looking at World size, The Overworld measures 60 Mm by 60 Mm (30 million blocks in each direction from world's center), giving a surface area of 3.6 billion km2, or about 7 times the area of Earth's 510 million km2.

World-exclusive Features

The Overworld is somewhat similar to Earth, except with mythical monsters such as Creepers and giant spiders. The Overworld is by far the most diverse of the three worlds. The Overworld is the only world with Water, Weather conditions, biomes, a large diversity in other plant life and animal life, and a large diversity in minerals and other materials. The Overworld is also the only world where time functions properly and mankind has made civilization. The overworld is also noted to be the only world/dimension where direction applies, whereas the Nether cannot have a compass function correctly. The Overworld is also the only dimension that can spawn Grass Blocks naturally.
