New colonies can be located in different areas, each with their own biome. The biome affects the crops that will grow there, the types of trees, the ground cover, and how flat the terrain is. For mixed biome locations, one biome will be chosen for the crops available, but the trees and ground cover will vary by biome type. The following tables were created by observing what was available at different colony starting locations.
Starting Crops by Biome:
|Desert||Chili Pepper, Agave|
|Tropical (all types)||Chili Pepper, Sugarcane, Tea|
|Temperate (all types)||Maize|
Trees by Biome:
|Desert||Cactus, Joshua Tree|
|Tropical Dry Forest||Baobob, Yellow Bamboo|
|Tropical Forest||Palm, Coconut Palm, Tropical Broadleaf|
|Tropical Wetland||Lacquer Tree, Black Bamboo|
|Temperate Forest (all types)||Weeping Willow, Conifer|
