The dark forest, formerly known as the roofed forest is a Biome which contains many Trees, close together, with a thick canopy, making it significantly darker than other forests at ground-level.


Like a regular Forest Biome, the dark forest holds some useful resources for players. Most obvious is the abundance of dark oak trees, which can be harvested for Wood. However, because of the low amount of light penetrating the thicker-than-usual forest canopy, it is common to find hostile Mobs in the shade of the trees, even during Daytime. This can make exploration in a dark forest dangerous for a player. Most Passive animal species can be found here, as well as Flowers (necessary for making Dyes), Mushrooms (both small and giant), and Grass (useful for gathering seeds). Woodland Mansions may rarely be found within this biome.
