There are a total of 47 customization options available when creating a new world. These customization options serve to allow the player to tweak a world to their liking. If a player goes through the Teleportato to create a new world, any changes to the customization are kept. Note that setting many of the options that concern spawn rates to anything above the "default" value will cause those resources to spawn outside of their native biomes.
