    Obviously without trees for now, just for the sake of testing terrain colors and composition.

    I tried to understand why is it that I like dover beach over the others.
    In the end I think it comes out to having an extra visual layers: Dover beach has a gravel beach looks natural and gives it something that stands against the other pics so it naturally jumps up. The details in the grass also stand enough to be marked but not so much that they are bothersome.

    An island like Solsthiem would be pretty cool, you could jam it with a whole bunch of nether blocks as well..

    Quite nice. The snow limit seems a bit hard though.
    A more graduated limit with patches of snow could work for that.


    Edit: I see in the text in the video that you will correct the line of snow. I'm glad you saw that.

    ok, so this gets me EVERY stinkin time, but could u please not make the places with snow a snowy biome? I can't tell you how much it sucks to build a build over a snow patch and it makes snow patches over your build in random spots

    also, it would be amazing if at least one or two non-volcano biomes had a few small lava pools. its very convenient when you wanna make an enchanting table to just go mining for a while instead of go on a huge adventure

    There will be no snow biomes. There is only Taiga, which when you go high enough on the map, the biome starts snowing, but there will be no snow biomes.

    The current plan is about 12kx12k of pure landmass, surrounded by another 2k later of ocean.

    That is because this is an realy pre-paint geography test purely generated by global operations. The reason why that frost seems so off is because the natural feather feature does not respect terrain slopes. I.E if I set the global operation to feather this frost type at or above layer 150, and set it to a minimum of 34 degrees slope, it will spawn the feathered blocks on slopes exceeding 35 degrees also, which causes weird spots of snow on the steep mountain sides. This is solved by just using a paintspray brush in the painting stage, but that is grouped together with tree painting to keep the work flow consistent.

    Both are already present. Dioriote in particular is present in the Dover Cliffs, Andesite is present in nearly every biome as part of the mountain gradient.

    Actually as I thought about this some more I just figured out I can just get rid of the badly feathered frost on the slopes by running a reverse global operation that removes it from higher slopes without the feather to get rid of improperly placed frost.

    Dover1 is exported. We're at about 3/9 on base geography right now. I should be able to get to the full 9/9 today
    , if not early tomorrow so that painting can begin.

    Will there be a lot of clay deposits? Seeing as massiverestore will apparently be removed. (Or will there be an alternative method of acquiring this, like repeatable quests or something?) Also the map is coming along nicely, can't wait to see the final product.

    If someone builds their faction right above that cliff, I can tell you right now it's going to be a lot of fun to raid. Reminds me of one of Asteria's old towns; there was a slope that led right down to the ocean, and batting people off the cliffs was hysterical.

    Will there be opportunity to get end-based blocks and items? Such as the purpur plants and shulker shells / boxes.
