    140140== How do I change what Minecraft does when I use Populate? How do I get rid of all the small water and lava lakes? ==

    142 The small water and lava lakes aren't created by !WorldPainter, they are created by Minecraft when you use the Populate layer, or enable the "allow Minecraft to populate the entire terrain" option. !WorldPainter has no control over what Minecraft does when it populates a chunk, at least not for the Default and Large Biomes world types. All it can do is tell it to populate the chunk, or not, for each individual chunk. If Minecraft populates a chunk it will add underground resources, vegetation, trees, small water and lava lakes, snow and ice, villages, ravines, strongholds and abandoned mines. It will not generate caves. For more details about the proper use of the Populate layer, see the [[wiki:Populate]] page.

    144144If you don't want the small water and lava lakes, you do have one option: you can set the world type to Superflat, and then use the Superflat preset to configure exactly what you want Minecraft to do during the population step.
