This is a mountainous world created using world painter. The border between generated terrain and natural terrain are seamless. You spawn in a river valley between mountain ranges. Can you survive this harsh world?
I made a layered map with a variety of tree sizes! I used Worldpainter and MCedit to craft this landscape. The trees below the canopy are from a tree schematic pack by lentebriesje. I used a schematic of an epic forest someone made a while back for the main stand of huge trees. I used a cleaned up schematic of a mega tree from another map i found a while back for the MEGA trees, which i made by layering multiple trees together.
I also hid a little book in the map where i tried out writing a small dramatic story thing. Enjoy
original main stand: http://www.minecraftworldmap.com/worlds/LYgIM
tree pack (compatible with WorldPainter): http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/native-trees-of-europe-template-repository-1779952/
Unfortunately i don't remember where i found the original mega tree. :/
This is the supercontinent Pangea, that existed 200 million years ago on Earth. It's remade in Minecraft as a huge (ca. 20000x20000 blocks) SMP map. The terrain is made in World Machine. It contains all 1.7/1.8 biomes, except for Mushroom Island, and they're populated in Vanilla Minecraft, instead of WorldPainter. WorldPainter is used on this map as a port for the terrain and to paint the biomes.
This is named after the huge mountain in GTA: San Andreas.
This world does have a huge mountain. Furthermore, there are amazing caves and fantastic ravines to explore. On the surface are nice forests, too, as well as a NPC village not far from spawn.
In this world you are given a house to start.
