    Red actually makes a post and we get a new biome. Will wonders never cease?
    Wait... how does this biome actually work? I'm not seeing a new block to carry the biome. Is it sand in the presence of water that creates the biome?

    You are correct! If there is enough water within a certain distance, oasis plants will grow instead of cacti. The cattails will grow anywhere on sand if the water depth is right. Dragonflies will spawn anywhere near cattails.

    Well then, I know the fate of all my worlds that do not currently have deserts with water in them... :naughty:

    Something I noticed and have been wondering, does this mean brown desert water is a thing of the past? Since now the water is just gonna be an oasis if there's enough of it

    Wait, so this isn't a mirage? Cool! So now everyone's mad at their pre-1.3.6 worlds for not having this?

    I can't wait to find a pyramid peeking through the water.

    Brown desert water is now underground only. The Desert Fountain will also make brown water.

    Just add a Dehydrated buff in the Desert and the Oasis can be used for something lmao :dryadindifferent:
    Brown water is underground because somebody broke the sewage pipes and toilet junk ended up there lol

    That's really interesting to hear all these new more advanced biome mechanics ! Can we expect all kinds of minibiomes ?

    Oh, I guess putting it underwater is a nice compromise. I like it though because the desert is a biome that could use more love
