Whats new? Whats Changed?


With each new map, I try to develop, evolve or refine a technique. Every map is an iteration that takes certain aspects and tries to elevate them. Find here all the history patch notes, in one place, what has changed and how stuff has evolved. Since I created so many maps, its hard to know how each map differentiates, so I went ahead and started listing all the changes, additions, and stuff I've worked on in the descriptions.

Please note that the amount of work does not correlate with the size/amount of notes/points, sometimes simple features can take days to create and to perfect without really representing the true time effort.

Map 56: Genboan


https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/genboan/

(Map) Map Version: v1.0.0 *I abandond this Editing style quickly since it was to heavy to maintain


Like Games, my maps have some kind of foundation that gets regularly updated, McWorldEngine refers here to my latest node build in Gaea. And McWorlCanvas refers to latest base foundation in Worldpainter. With each new map i try to develop, evolve or refine a technique. See all my maps as rapid prototype maps.

(Gaea) McWorldEngine Version: v2.7.0 *I actually continued giving each iteration a new number

  • πŸ“€ Nodes: new Biome node distribution system
  • πŸ“€ Nodes: Redone the way mountains would form on a more erosion and apex based technique
  • πŸ“€ Nodes: new forest generation node system coupled to biomes
  • πŸ“€ Nodes: + new onion forest system (outer layer: smaller trees, core forest: Megatrees)
  • πŸ“€ Nodes: River system redone - less noise blocks, more dedicated rivers, less error’d areas

(WorldPainter) McWorlCanvas Version: v2.1.0 *Its now just called "Main" to many files to maintain

  • πŸ“€ Worldpainter: Added dozens of new biomes to shift away from the megabiomes
  • πŸ“€ Assets: Build over 300 new assets and a good new part is included in this map as a test: Birch tree´s - Dead trees - new rocks


Map 55: Feon


https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/feon/

With each new map i try to develop, evolve or refine a technique. See all my maps as rapid prototype maps.
  • πŸ“€ Nodes: new Biome node distribution system
  • πŸ“€ Nodes: new forest generation node system cuppled to biomes
  • πŸ“€ Nodes: + new onion forest system (outer layer: smaller trees, core forest: Megatrees)
  • πŸ“€ Nodes: River system redone - less noise blocks, more dedicated rivers, less error’d areas
  • πŸ“€ Worldpainter: Added dozens of new biomes to shift away from the megabiomes
  • πŸ“€ Assets: Build over 300 new assets and a good new part is included in this map as a test: Birch tree´s - Dead trees - new rocks

Thoughts on this Map:

I used in the past a different more "global" technique to distribute vegetation, but lately, i thought about creating "every biome". But I questioned myself on how to distribute them in a procedural way. There are 70-ish+ Biomes total... so handpicking/painting every bit wouldn't be an option, so I looked for an approach that feels ... natural. And here we are, with my first attempt, using the latitude (I think) and "climates" to determine where biomes should go.

It's currently separated into 6 Regions: Arctic, Taiga, temperate, warm, tropical, and dry/desert

I think it's a good start to evolve more biomes from it, but I also think it can be improved in a few various ways. For example, I'm trying to figure out how to integrate land formations like mountains and rivers taking part in the distribution. Generating areas or forming the biomes around/according to formations. And having like a "weather influence" that directs parts of the growth of the foliage, as well as diversifying more of it.
A huge part is also the ocean.. that will need more attention in the future for sure!, it's currently pretty simple, but I would like to add all the nice aquatic stuff from the default Minecraft, but that's for another day

Map 52: Bamerian


https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/bamerian/

no update notes included from here on. But generally this map generally was the beginning of highly complex and layered terrain formations and had be the groundwork for many of the following maps.
