The stranded addon puts the player in a place where most biomes are covered in snow. There are features that generate and there are recipes to help the player survive. The features include dead trees and rocks on the ground. Mobs are also way stronger and faster. The player always has a slowness effect to make the biomes feel cold. Below is a picture of the world's generation. More pictures and info in the spoilers.

Biomes and Structures

In the snow biomes, only trees, rocks, sticks, and ice generate. the rivers are filled with ice blocks and they have ice patches that spawn. It is always snowing in most snow biomes. Here are some pictures.
