I think the Snow Biome page turned out really nice. But why is the snow block bug listed as an anomaly? I'm not Blue or Redigit, but I don't see much sense for one snow block to cause snow fall...--Linkraft 03:41, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

It amounts to one snowflake every minute or so. You really have to be looking for it. I've only noticed it because I have exactly two Snow Blocks in my base. It's really a side effect of the Snow Biome not being a true biome, exactly. It's more that snow blocks just cause snowfall, and some maps have large bunches of them. --Theothersteve7 15:21, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
True, but listing it as an anomaly implies that it's intended to happen, whereas a bug is something that results from poor coding. I'll just changed it to "Bug" so my OCD streak can cool down...--Linkraft 15:25, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
It's more of a sloppy design decision than poor coding, but hey, whatever the community decides is the more accurate answer. --Theothersteve7 15:26, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
Anomaly is more used when there's no documentation about that happening and its not consistent with other similar things (e.g.: Meteor heads appear when there's more blocks, snow appears wit just one), and bug when documentation and devs said that something should happen, but it doesn't. In this case, update notes said it's a "snow biome", but there's no special background and no unique monsters and snow drops with just a single block, it's not consistent with other biomes, but no one said a biome must have all of that, the desert didn't get cacti and monsters until later.

Will they ever make it to where you don't have to make a new world every time they have a new patch? Or is it possible for the snow biome to spawn magically in an already create world? -- 23:34, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

On a pre-existing world, you can kill enemies to obtain presents and find a snow globe, use it to summon the Frost Legion, and then place the numerous Snow Blocks they drop to create your own snow biome. You can also create a new world and mine it for snow to bring back, of course.
I kind of wish there was an easier way to get snow in my pre-existing world, but I'm also kind of glad the game isn't going to automatically rip out (or bury) a giant chunk of my existing blocks to make room for it. --Manxome 23:47, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
Ah alright then, thank you for the tip. -- 23:49, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi guys, as of 1.2 I just had a snow tree drop some acorns on me. If anyone else can confirm this then I think we would update the page. I also think it should mention that this used to be a small/event biome but not it's a proper biome in 1.2. I'm not sure whether any of the other properties have changed yet, either (such as immunity to hallow/corruption) and it certainly does have its own music now.

Recordable (Blizzard) Music?[edit source]

Wait, does the Blizzard event really have noticeably different music from the regular Snow track/Ice track? Because when I tried using a Music Box to record it, all I got was Music Box (Snow). And yes, I was certain it was the so-called "Blizzard" event because it was raining elsewhere in the map and Ice Golems (plural, mind you) appeared and subsequently had their faces melted off and their Frost Armor item drops retrieved.

Would appreciate a definitive answer; thanks for reading.

Hills[edit source]

The "Crimson-like hills" mentioned in this article are not exclusive to the snow biome, nor do they spawn any more frequently there then anywhere else in the world. Would a specific page for these generated hills be needed? They're very clearly unnatural terrain, and they almost always generate in even small worlds. But, at the same time, they have no specific music, enemies, loot, or anything unique to them, so a page for them could be trivial. Could I get some other people's opinions of whether or not a page for these hills would be needed? --KM100 (talk) 03:48, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
