Nature’s Compass Mod (Find Biome)

Nature’s Compass Mod 1.17.1/1.16.5 adds a new compass that allows you to search for a biome’s location anywhere in the world and view information about it.


When you right-click while holding the compass, you can find any biome from available lists. And once you have your biome selected, the coordinates are listed on your screen as well as the distance away from it. Just keep walking in the direction in which the distance number is decreasing, you will find it easily.
