Title: New Biome Registry
Description: last updated 8/17/2014


Penguinman - August 15, 2009 08:02 PM (GMT)
Please PM a staff or post in this topic which codename you would like and what biome you will be making and this list will be edited.

Use the zbiome# as the codename for your biome so that it will fit with the shell file.If more biomes are needed later we can overlap some or we can also make a new shell file with additional biomes.
Thank you so much!!

Here is the shell file: Download Here or Below

ZNEMO:

znemo1-
znemo2-
znemo3-Pampas
znemo4-Monsoon Forest
znemo5-Prairie
znemo6-Marsh (The New Salt Marsh)
znemo7-Littoral (Basicly the littoral biome from Z-Studio)
znemo8-Mangrove
znemo9-Rocky Seabed
znemo10-(Secret)
znemo11-Sea Grass Bed
znemo12-Neritic
znemo13-Artifical Reef
znemo14-Sea Ice
znemo15-Cave

Please note: I did not include ancient seas as there is already a Prehistoric seas biome. If you have animals in mind please make them for the above biome, which is registered as zbiome2

Update 22 July 2010 5:25 PM GMT:
For registering purposes I have added the znemo codenames here. These cannot be registered, but please check to make sure your biome of choice is not on there before registering a biome ~Manu

Update 25 June 2010 6:15 PM GMT:
zbiome100 has been registered as a testing biome. This means if you have applied for a zbiome number but have not yet recieved one, you can make and test your biome using the codename zbiome100. zbiome100 biomes cannot be released. ~Manu

legojedij - August 15, 2009 08:05 PM (GMT)
zbiome1 for abyss

and whatever biome number you can use for a cave biome

EDIT: maybe this should be closed so that it doesnt get bogged up with requests

EDIT2nvm it says to post here , i thought you only pm the codenames lol

dalturge - August 15, 2009 08:14 PM (GMT)
PM you have a PM LOL! mine is rockydesert. zbiome4 please.

koolestplay - August 15, 2009 08:19 PM (GMT)
zbeach/koolestplay in number 10 if it's possible please

is my beach biome!!

zelda-maniack - August 15, 2009 08:46 PM (GMT)
Z-studio, will do the Altiplano, the Wet Forest, and the Martian Plain

Martianplain/ Z-studio

Altiplano/Z-studio

WetForest/ Z-studio

If its possible, i want the numbers 7,8, and 9

Penguinman - August 15, 2009 08:58 PM (GMT)
koolestplay, you can't use the codename zbeach, instead use the codename zbiome10 :)

legojedij - August 15, 2009 09:04 PM (GMT)
wwdu is doing mesozoic forest so that should be added

Penguinman - August 15, 2009 09:07 PM (GMT)
Thank you everyone, I really appreciate it. Be sure to use the codename assigned to you when you code your biome and it should work. I will do my best to make the shell soon, but I'm quite busy at the moment. If someone else wants to do it feel free.

Also, if you notice someone at another site who is not aware of this it would be great if you could let them know about the registry ;)

legojedij - August 15, 2009 09:28 PM (GMT)
i pinned a topic at caldera for this

Sophie - August 15, 2009 09:33 PM (GMT)
zbiome30 - MangroveZD / Sophie & Jannick
zbiome31 - PackIceZD / Sophie & Ruben
zbiome32 - KelpForestZD / Sophie & Ruben

Penguinman - August 15, 2009 09:44 PM (GMT)
Thanks sophie!
I hope you and everyone realizes that when you make your biome you must use the zbiome# as the codename ;)

And good idea lego :)

Sophie - August 15, 2009 09:53 PM (GMT)
Okay I didn't know that. Well, I though that was the idea, but because people put the biome behind it I though that was gonna be the codename :P. Thanks for clearing that up. I guess the ZD isn't necessay anymore :P.

Btw: I'm announcing this list at ZT.nl too.

DinosaurMan - August 15, 2009 09:57 PM (GMT)
Bog is in, put it where u want.

Also, can i reserve 10 biomes for AD?

Also again, I find it hilariously if we make the same biome twice. It's just a waste of space in the list IMO. ;)

Penguinman - August 15, 2009 10:04 PM (GMT)
I think as far as design teams go I would prefer to register them as they are actually decided and made so that we dont end up with ones that aren't used or have every team claim more than they need. If all the teams were to register 10 we'd have waaay too many biomes in my opinion.

Yes I agree with you DM about repeats.
Sophie, if you'd like I'd be happy to work together to make a mangrove pack rather than make 2 separate ones, but if you'd rather work on your own thats ok too.

The Y2J Problem - August 15, 2009 10:17 PM (GMT)
I have a question about the biome thing. Will having a lot of biome's slow down the game? How much space does a biome take up?

Sophie - August 15, 2009 10:22 PM (GMT)
I think it's ridiculous that AD wants 10 biomes.

And I'm okay with working together on one Mangrove, but I don't know how Jannick (GLM) thinks about that. I'll ask him tomorrow.

DinosaurMan - August 15, 2009 10:39 PM (GMT)
Oh btw wouldn't we need a new maps XML too or does that work with renaming?

and also has anybody figured out how to get the maps into the biome filter at the top (they appear in the screen below ;) )?

i agree with sophie on that, unlike other things for zt2, there isnt millions of biomes to choose from in terms of realism, asking for ten is a bit unfair to everyone else

maps.xml i think can be renamed

zbiome11 - Cloud Forest
I'll be making that for my UXP. ;)

Penguinman - August 15, 2009 11:53 PM (GMT)
Thanks VG

As for maps, you dont actually need to include the maps folder at all to create a new biome so that shouldn't be a problem :)

And thanks Sophie, just let me know. I dont do much coloring just coding so it might be easier for you anyway. I mostly just want to make make some foliage and animals cause I love mangroves :D

GrimpyNZ - August 16, 2009 01:10 AM (GMT)
What do I do if I want to make an animal for one of these biomes?

Penguinman - August 16, 2009 01:14 AM (GMT)
What you will do is where you would enter the animal's biome with the primary="true", make a new line that looks exactly like the other biome lines except change the codename of the biome to whatever codename the new biome is registered as in this topic.
Does that make sense?

I would encourage all biome makers to make their biomes accessible to all so that people can make new plants/animals for it. Having biomes as exclusives or hidden just causes more complications especially with regards to this registry.
In fact I would really appreciate it if all registered biomes could be available here individually (not as part of packs) so that people can get them without registering and we can add to them easily. This would make repeat biomes a lot less common.

GrimpyNZ - August 16, 2009 01:28 AM (GMT)
Okay. And PM, can you just keep 4 biome slots open incase we at MMM want to use them? I am trying to convince DG ATM so expect an answer as to wether we will use them soon.

Will do, I'll release it here once I release my pack in a month or so.

The Y2J Problem - August 16, 2009 02:11 AM (GMT)
I think it'd make sense that since Lego made this possible if Lego thinks having each biome available here is a good idea then you should put them here. After all without lego you wouldn't know how.

legojedij - August 16, 2009 02:18 AM (GMT)
i am not the only one lol, dart frog figured it out at the same time :P

Brach - August 16, 2009 02:46 AM (GMT)
DM, I don't think 10 is very fair. There are not over 9000 biomes as legosith has said.

Penguinman - August 16, 2009 03:22 AM (GMT)
As I said earlier, I won't pre-register any biomes. To register the codename you must already know what biome you will be making and be sure it will come. If needed, I will can always add more codenames so don't worry about running out.

The shell file has been uploaded to the first page and the abyss biome by lego has been released in the downloads section! Lego also had the idea to have links to each biome download in this topic so once you release yours feel free to post a link and I can edit it in.

I also am really sorry to everyone if it seems like I'm "taking over" this whole biome discovery, but I'm just trying to do my best to avoid lots of problem files and bring the community together. Obviously I am extremely grateful to lego and dart frog for their achievements and if either of those two have problems with how things are being run please let me know. I will definitely do my best!

Thank you all SO much for your cooperation. I'm super excited about the endless possibilities that this is going to bring :D

Actually make that five. DG want's a ton. I'm trying to reason with him. I know that 5 would really be the limit. Thanks, PM. ;)

Brach - August 16, 2009 03:27 AM (GMT)
Lol don't worry PM. Your not taking over in a bad sense. More like your taking care of things needed done. This would be much more hectic if you didn't.

Penguinman - August 16, 2009 03:32 AM (GMT)
thanks Brach!

Trexroarr: I'm not going to pre-register the biomes at the moment, just let me know once you have decided on what biome to make and then I'll register them as they become "official". We're going to have plenty of codenames I do believe, and I want to make sure we, as a community, avoid repeating biomes as much as possible. It'd be much better if someone had one mangrove biome with tons of foliage/animals/rocks rather than 3 mangrove biomes each with 1/3 of the stuff just as an example.

Thanks :D

One problem with that PM. What if MMM doesn't know or want the public to know the biomes yet. <_<

Mysty - August 16, 2009 03:35 AM (GMT)
If you don't even know the biomes, why do you need to reserve 5 slots?

well pm said the more could be added later, so once you release the names they can be added

Well we know them. We have more than five. We are now narrowing down DG's list. ;)

Penguinman - August 16, 2009 03:41 AM (GMT)
I understand that you don't want the public to know, but I really want to avoid duplicate biomes as much as possible... I think it would be so much better if I were to make a deep sea plant if I were to add it to lego's biome rather than make another new one myself. See what I mean?

It's kind of a tricky situation because I know people like to keep surprises, but maybe new biomes shouldn't be kept secret?

Mysty - August 16, 2009 03:43 AM (GMT)
I agree with PM, if you keep it a secret I can guarantee that different people will end up making the biomes you choose.

That is understandable. For that you gotta talk with DG. I have no clue what he want to do. PM him at ZTV or MMM. ;)

GrimpyNZ - August 16, 2009 04:45 AM (GMT)
What about we pm you PM with the new biomes we will be adding then you can just try to avoid the duplicates somehow?

BTW, really looking foward to your Mangroves pack PM! :D

Sophie - August 16, 2009 08:49 AM (GMT)
Thanks for all your work PM. It's great to have someone who takes care of this.
I'll talk today to GLM today about working on one Mangrove pack, cause I really like the idea of working together :) .
