      The Biome Depth Weight has a valid range of 1.000 to 20.000, with a default value of 1.000. When gradually adjusting this setting, most biomes swell and gradually change. (Rivers become wider and deeper, etc.) However, on Ocean--Deep Ocean boundaries, massive spikes that tower to the top of the map (y = 256) appear. This occurs even when slightly adjusting the Biome Depth Weight value.

      How to reproduce:

      1. Create a new world.
      2. Change world type to Customized.
      3. Change Biome Depth Weight to 1.250.
      4. Create world.
      5. Locate an Ocean--Deep Ocean biome boundary.

      You can also reproduce this bug by using the attached world customization preset with one of the following seeds, which have a spawn point near an ocean:

      Seed 1 746720048
      Seed 2 8123728

      The GIF image below animates how the Ocean--Deep Ocean boundary changes as the Biome Depth Weight (BDW) is increased. Created using the following:

      Seed 8123728
      Location /tp 40 40 40 270 0
      Gamemode Spectator (for seeing through blocks)
      Effect Night Vision (for seeing through water)

      Caves, ravines, mineshafts, lava lakes, etc. were turned off using world customization.
