The Void is an empty biome that generates only a 33×33 Void Start Platform centered on a block of cobblestone at coordinates 8, 3, 8. No mobs (passive or hostile) apart from phantoms can spawn without spawn eggs, spawners or commands. In The Void superflat preset, since the world is made up of one layer of air, only the platform generates. Below the platform, there is just void.

This biome can be useful for constructing a redstone contraptions world without interference from the surroundings. It can also be useful for building completely custom terrain from scratch. If generated using buffet, because the only feature generated is the platform, the terrain looks as if the game has not reached the point where it generates biomes, so it is completely made of stone.
