Example of the desert biome after it was revamped with the May 2015 update.

See also: Biomes for an overview of what a biome is in Landmark.

All landscapes have two biomes. To see which landscapes have the Desert Biome see the Servers and Landscapes page.

What is the Purpose of a Biome?Edit

Biomes not only give players a variety of natural terrains in which they can build their build sites, but also exist to give us queues about where we need to go to get certain material to craft items and build on our claims.

  • Many of the trees and plants can be gathered and used for crafting and building, but many of the same trees and plants can also be used as props on build sites.

Biome AppearanceEdit

The Desert Biome is one of many natural terrains you will find on the landscapes of Landmark. It is primarily low laying flats, soaring mountains, and deep valleys covered in primarily in sand along with raw stone, and sparse vegetation. It has a variety of trees, but the majority have sparse leaves or flowers. The plant life is varied, but includes cacti.

Materials for Building and CraftingEdit

The following materials for building and crafting can be found only in this biome:

  • The Desert Biome is the source of the tree resource Striped Wood Logs, Tree Fiber and Tree Sap.
  • Though sandier than all other biomes, the only top layer of this biome is a great place to gather Sand if you move over the landscape rather than digging deep. All other biomes have sand as well, but it is limited to beaches.


Any axe can be used to chop trees here.

  • The type of wood from each tree varies by biome and tree type. For now, see the Trees page to help you understand trees as a gathered material resource.
  • Read about Gathering Tools to help you better understand why you may need to upgrade your tools.

Desert Biome-themed PropsEdit

Landmark has many props that allow players to enhance the natural look for their build sites or terraform sites to suit their needs. As such, many props will appear exactly like those you find in the Desert Biome biome.

See the Desert Biome Props (List) for props that match this biome.
