    This pack is no longer being updated! Thank you!

    For the intended experience, play with the Golden Days (Base + Alpha) or Classic Alternative (NEON) resource packs, Optifine/Colormatic (for custom color support), moody brightness, no smooth lighting, and fast clouds!

    Indev Islands -- Survive on Indev-inspired islands!

    This terrain generation data pack generates survival islands inspired by Minecraft Indev! Based on the Indev small, square island map type and comes in the four original themes: Normal, Woods, Paradise, and Hell. Emerge from the Indev house and survive within a 256x256 block world!

    Also includes the Indev Islands Plus data pack, with the same terrain generation and themes, but with guaranteed stronghold and fortress spawns so you can beat the game! See the new Nether, shrunk down to fit all biomes within the 256x256 world border.

    Spawn in the indev house! Classic beaches! Classic pre-Adventure Update Nether!

        I made an account just to say this, but this data pack is really cool.
        Combined with mods like Ex Nihilo: Sequentia it makes a nice way to play.

        Also, I figured out if you put the data packs in a specific order, you can generate a world very similar to old Minecraft terrain generation, pre-biomes.

        Your datapacks are pretty cool! Have you thought about trying to replicate the original sky dimension noise type. The floating islands/end preset is really flat unlike it was back before the end dimension was created around the official release of the end.

        It might be an interesting challenge and many people would love to relive and play on it. Especially since the aether mod used this generation also.

        Yes, I am a little busy at the moment, but I do plan to add a sky dimension-like dimension to the Modern Beta data pack.

        At this time, not too much. There are a lot more flowers, and there is no day-night cycle (the time is always noon).

        In the original Indev, you'd also be guaranteed a nice spacious beach around the entire island, but currently, I cannot control the frequency of beaches (it is a feature dependent on seed, like ores or structures).

        Sounds interesting

        If it will be good for me, I will possibly try to make a map from it(with crediting you)
