Nature's Compass is a utility item that allows you to search for a biome's location anywhere in the world and view information about it. It is the sister mod of Explorer's Compass, an item that can be used to locate structures.



  • Right-clicking with Nature's Compass in hand will open the biome selection GUI, from which you can search for a biome or view information about it.
  • Shift-right-clicking will reset the compass's state.
  • When the compass is not pointing at a biome, it will point at the world spawn.
  • The compass supports all registered biomes, both vanilla and modded.
  • Sample space and maximum search distance can be adjusted in the config file.



As of 1.18, the compass will search for biomes at a similar height that the player was at when the search started. If you're having trouble finding cave biomes, try going to a lower height and searching again.



Information about a found biome is displayed on the HUD
