The Minecraft Plains biome is the most basic environment in Minecraft. They’re characterized by large open spaces, an extremely low number of trees, villages, and passive mob spawns. Farming is relatively easy with common lakes for water, abundant grass for seeds, and flat, fertile soil for growing.
Minecraft plains are characterized into four types - Sunflower Plains, Meadows, Snowy Plains and Ice Spikes.
Sunflower Plains are exactly what they sound like: Plains with Sunflowers, and they are in fact the only place in the game where you can get Sunflowers. In addition to being a source of yellow dye, they always face East, making them a reliable naturally occurring compass.
A high-altitude version of the plains biome, these appear in mountainous regions and are filled with many different varieties of flowers. This is the only variant to have rabbits, and is also the only high-altitude biome where villages can appear. Meadows will very rarely have a single tree, but if one is present, it will always have a Bee Nest.
The cold version of Plains which usually appears around other cold biomes can spawn polar bears and rabbits, as well as Igloos. In this biome, Skeletons may turn into Strays, tougher versions whose arrows will inflict slowness.
An even colder version of Snow Plains, these have giant towers of Packed Ice spikes, making this the only Plains biome that is difficult to navigate. Further, the top layer of dirt is replaced with Snow Blocks, making this a good biome to acquire that material. However, Strays are more likely to appear here.
Plains are a crucial biome in the game. Being one of the oldest existing biomes, players tend to work their way through the game utilizing plains and all their resources to the fullest. It is one of the easiest biomes for survival. Having an abundance of resources and passive mobs, farming is a common sight in the plains.
