This looks pretty good. This could make a nice guide on steam to get it out to more people who might find it useful. My only nitpick is that you combined the meteor field with the mosaic. While one always does spawn in the mosaic, I've seen a secondary one spawn as well, although rarely.

True this. Had i more data (clearer screencaps with all the details) i would have separated the Small Swamp, the Small Savannah, the different kinds of Forest, and more

Also, I would wish for cave mains to share how cave worlds are mapped, details about how they are mapped and photos too. I myself cannot make a cave world as my laptop's processinv power is rather anemic :/

A dedicated player made an extremely detailed guide on biomes some time back in June (coincidentally close to the time I started playing this game), and it was super-helpful for me personally back in the day.

That being said, I think both the OP and the guide that I linked missed a particular set piece called the Queen's Gathering. It's a rare alternative to the Spider Quarry set piece where a bunch of tier 3 spider dens spawn in a ring formation inside an evergreen forest.

I wish I could get an in-game picture of the set piece, but sadly, I was stupid enough to delete this world. This picture was taken several days ago when I was experimenting with Webber, and I didn't anticipate this thread being made :/

The wiki implies that the Queen's Gathering is a single-player set piece, but I've confirmed that it also exists in DST.

That is an extremely detailed guide, thanks for sharing it! :D

I am aware of setpieces like the Queen's Gathering, the Houndforts and Tallforts, and didn't think they were of note at first but thank you for bringing to light the fact that certain setpieces can only spawn in certaain biomes :D

Aside from Queen's Gathering, Houndforts and Tallforts spawn either in Rockylands or Deserts, and I've also noticed some worlds of mine in the past with Tallforts in Mosaic biomes.

"Killer Bee Fields"

  Hide contents

A rare biome which i do not have a picture as of yet, it's a patch of grssland chock full of flowers, killer bees, bees and grass. Run through at your leisure - bees cannot kill you if you stay mobile due to their nerfed range. Excellent source of stinger sand honey, especially for wnedy mains. It usually forms near Oasis desert.

Also one thing to note about the lunar island biome is that there isn't any sea stacks or deep water between the island and the main land.

Not sure about mosaic. I usually get it right next to spawn. 

Mosaic is always connected to the starting biome.

You're right. Looking at the files the starting biome tries to connect them first while "dangerous" biomes like desert won't.  You can see this by generating a world without branches and reveal the map via console.

I'm pretty sure that if the world generates one, the Spider Quarry will almost always be connected to the Oasis Desert.
