Description


Desert lake biomes are flat and barren just like a regular desert and thus their vegetation consists of cacti, dead bushes, and sugarcane. They have little to no raid making the weather quite dry. The surface is completely made up of sand blocks which are supported by sandstone blocks that generate underneath. If you dig deep enough you will find other blocks such as stone, gold ore, coal ore, etc.
