Server doesn't generate amplified / large biome worlds


    • Icon: Bug Bug

    • None

    • Very Important

      What I expected to happen was...:

      The server should've generated an amplified world with level-type=amplified set.

      What actually happened was...:

      It generates a default world instead.

      Steps to Reproduce:

      1. Use the latest pre-release server .jar. (which can be found here)
      2. In server.properties, set level-type to amplified (server changes "AMPLIFIED" or "Amplified" to all lower-case on startup).
      3. Generate the world and behold a land strewn with defaultness.

      Solutions I've tried:

      • Setting server.properties to read-only to prevent the server from changing the level-type to lowercase.
      • Generating the amplified world in singleplayer (which works, by the way) and copying the folder to the server (which doesn't work ).
      • Messing around with the level.dat file to force the generator setting to amplified.
      • Copying an old 1.15.2 amplified server world.

      I'd like to note that none of the aforementioned solutions work.
