Biome Shaders:

Biomes in Minecraft have their grass, foliage, water, and fog colors gradient based on the biome they currently reside in. The colors used are mapped from a shader. ExtraBiomesXL also pulls its biome colors from this shader. Below is a table which can help texture pack authors in manipulating these shaders when using ExtraBiomesXL.

ExtrabiomesXL Mod Biome Shaders

The temperature percentage goes from bottom to top and the rain percentage goes from left to right. The temperature or rain values that are listed with the name of one of Minecraft’s vanilla biomes means the value is the same as the biome named.
