    1919This second step is what the Populate layer controls. If you paint the Populate layer on a chunk, or check "allow Minecraft to populate the entire terrain", !WorldPainter will turn off the flag saying the chunk is already populated for that chunk (or all chunks), which will cause Minecraft to populate it the first time it loads the chunk. If you don't use Populate, the chunk will be left as it is (which may include trees, etc. generated by !WorldPainter using the other layers) when it is loaded by Minecraft.

    21 Exactly what Minecraft will do depends on the biomes you painted (or !WorldPainter chose automatically) for that chunk. Note that all !WorldPainter can do is tell Minecraft to populate the chunk, or not populate the chunk. It has no control over what Minecraft will do exactly. For instance, there is no way to tell it not to generated surface lakes of water or lava. If you don't want those, your only option is not to use Populate.

For instance, there is no way to tell it not to generated surface lakes of water or lava, at least not for the Default and Large Biomes world types. You do have ''one'' option though, and that is to use Superflat. See below for details.

    2323Note that whether or not you use Populate, the biomes will still determine the colour of grass and leaves, whether it will rain or snow or be dry, whether water will freeze and what kinds of mobs will spawn.

     25== Controlling the population == 
     26 
     27Even though Minecraft does the population, not !WorldPainter, there is one way in which you can control what Minecraft will do: set the world type to Superflat, and use the Superflat preset to configure the population step. For more details about this technique, see [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMzq4fWEBrI this YouTube video] by Fornan II.
