A Plains Biome is a type of Biome of flat, grassy fields, commonly generated in the Overworld.


The plains biome is one of the most common biomes in Minecraft, and it holds several useful resources for players. An abundance of Flowers can be found here (necessary for making Dyes), widespread patches of Grass (which can be chopped down to gather seeds) as well as the occasional Tree. The relatively flat landscape allows players to easily find level ground on which to build structures. Cows, Pigs and Chickens spawn here more often than many other biomes. This is also one of the few areas where Horses can spawn. Villages often generate within this type of biome.

There are actually three or four variations of the plains biome: The normal plains (outlined in the paragraph above); a variation with slightly more hills and ponds of Water throughout; a "sunflower plains" variation which contains fields covered in Sunflowers; and a "Wildflower Plains" variation containing many flower species other than sunflowers.
