The Grasslands Biome is very common in most maps, and is usually the Biome which covers the majority of the island.
The temperature is mild during the day and night, so players don’t need to wrap up in clothes to avoid being too cold or hot. Rocks and Barrels will be the most common spawn in the area, which are ways for newly spawned players to gather resources for early-game crafts - if you do a bit more exploring you can also find plenty of Hemp to pick up!
The land is quite flat, which makes it fairly popular for early builds.
The cold lands of Snow biome will eventually cause you to freeze and take continuous damage - make sure you wear the appropriate outfit when exploring this area or face the slow but painful consequences.
In the early game...before the rest of the server population has looted the area, you can find a great number of Metal Rocks in this biome so be quick!
The Desert biome is a much larger area than the other Grasslands or Snow biomes, they are fairly expansive with lots of...well...sand! Animals are known to spawn at a higher rate here and barrels are commonplace.
During the night, the temperature drops considerably, so be sure to bring extra layers otherwise you may start to take damage due to the freezing temperatures.
You’ll be hard pressed to find any vegetation here other than a cactus, a few shrubs and mushrooms (which are surprisingly tasty!)
