Many different formations of blocks are randomly generated in Eden with the use of the app's built in terrain generator. These currently include hills, stone quarries, overhangs, volcanoes, mountains, trees, beaches, and more.
Types Of Worlds
When you make a new world, you are presented with an option on which type of world to make. Currently, there are two types of worlds, Flat and Normal. Flat is obviously completely flat whereas normal is mountainous, has trees, cliffs, stone, weeds, and flowers. If you have creatures toggled on, they will spawn naturally in both worlds.
In a Flat World, there are no structures. The only blocks found in this terrain are Grass, Dirt, Light Stone, and Bedrock. There is first one layer of Grass, followed by 16 dirt blocks below it. After the Dirt, there are 15 light stone blocks below it. Finally, there is one layer of impassable Bedrock at the bottom. Flat Worlds are suitable for building large cities or structures such as roller coasters.
Version 1.7 and Below Normal Worlds
Normal Worlds use the terrain generator to generate a virtually infinite world with randomly generated hills and valleys. At the top there are grass blocks, flowers, weeds, and trees. In the lower levels, there is stone, dirt, and bedrock. There are occasional floating islands and patches of stone on the surface, which some consider a seperate biome from the grass.
Version 2.0 Terrain Generator
With the arrival of Eden Update 2.0, there were mountains capped with snow and ice at the bases, naturally appearing lakes of water, naturally occurring ice slides, and a tropical island biome type. Mountains have recently been seen in screenshots with water replacing the ice, meaning that this is another possible change that could come.
Biomes in Update 2.0 Terrain Generation:
- Tropical (sand, light blue water, and a different type of tree from the original type)
- Forest (all dark grass and a third type of tree spawn here)
- Snow-Capped Mountains (questionably its own biome)
- Red/Volcanic world (consists of red stone for the ground, black stone arches, and volcanoes)
- Purple world (a purple area covering a rainbow colored stone and water filled area)
