Good news: Goodlucky777 is working on a new world gen, so it is possible :slight_smile:

Can the author update the terrain of the main world and the naturally generated buildings in hell, such as villages in the main world, dungeons, forests in hell, forts, in general, can you achieve most of the features and functions of the original bds server?
Support the author greatly! :grinning:
In fact, I want to make powernukkit better to do the original function
Also, it seems that some enchantments don’t work, I hope it can be fixed

支持作者大大! :grinning:
