This is my greatest project so far. This map of the United States is one of the largest custom terraformed maps in Minecraft. Featuring over 50 or so major rivers, tributaries and lakes so far. It contains almost every biome in Minecraft. Once it's finished, it's size is roughly about 55,000x30,000 blocks large, which is about the same size as Westeros in Westeroscraft. The sea-level is the same as Minecraft, about 62 blocks, and the highest point in the USA, Mount Whitney, is about 150 blocks. Because this map only uses vanilla biomes and trees (please add more biomes Mojang), many biomes in the US are substituted with vanilla biomes, which doesn't realistically look like the United States in real life. I'm searching for a server hoster which is interested in terraforming my map, along with other terraformers online.

Give some advice to me about improving the biomes in such a way to be replicated in WorldPainter, without any mods.

Update #12 : 01/12/2020 8:16:27 amJan 12th

In order to save cloud storage, i have removed the map from MediaFire, and instead added a .torrent file. Use any BitTorrent client in order to download the map.

So I'm trying to use the map on 1.15.2 but it keeps having weird biomes on top of where the map should be. Is this due to the minecraft version I'm using?

I tried to load this onto my server and it didn't work, I know it's not too big since its around 10gb and the storage capacity of the server is 30gb so why can't I load it((its a private server)?

It's because it's 10 GB in a compressed format. It's over 30 GB uncompressed

Is it possible to do our own borders or find any map that is the same size as these so we can at least mark our own borders?

You could create trees or some other structure, select it in MCedit to import as a schematic, and make it as a custom layer in Worldpainter.

There is one layer on this map that utilizes custom trees, and that is the shrublands in southern California

Ok. I was just suggesting maybe you could make realistic trees or even redwoods with acacia logs.

Assume that this map is about 10 GB compressed. The map area is about 1100 square kilometers, which means there's about 9 MB per square kilometer. A world map in a cylindrical projection would be about 20000x40000 kilometers, and dividing it by 85 means it would be 235,000x470,000 blocks large, or about 110,450 square kilometers. When you multiply that with 9 MB you get 994 GB, or close to 1 TB

I just finished downloading this map myself and loaded it into version 1.12. I don't think it's worked as I've spawned in the middle of the ocean. I'm planning on working to make a compatible world for 1.14 to upload it to my own realm as well as adding some end strongholds and other features. How else can I reach you to get some support for loading this up and then making it compatible with 1.14?

Hey I've been trying to get this map to work but it loads an entirely different map. Not sure what I'm doing wrong I'm placing the map in my "saves" folder. I'm running Minecraft version 1.14.

It's not compatible with 1.13 and 1.14 because WorldPainter isn't. End of the story.

This map is a blank canvas for those who want to build, or using the map for survival. So if you want cities, you (and perhaps someone else) have to build it yourselves. The work on this map started in December 2017. I didn't always work on it when i had spare time.

What versions of Minecraft can this map be used for?

RRyyas
Anything above 1.8 can be used, since Minecraft does most of the population. If i would exclude 1.8 blocks from the terrain such as granite, diorite and such, the map would be compatible with versions older than that. Not sure if 1.13 is compatible yet, because WorldPainter doesn't support 1.13 rendering.

I'm just downloading it as of at the moment. Wow, my computer takes about 25min to download the map. Also, do you think you may add coords for each city or capital of every state? For instance, it makes it easier for traveling.

I've tried using the plugin on the server, but it's too CPU-intensive on the server laptop that i'm using. Rendering will cause the server to freeze.

FYI: For those who answered "East coast cities" on my spawnpoint poll, just remember. This map is very large, and to make it fair for those who live at the west coast, i selected cities which is near the center of United States.

For the downloadable version, this map is made for survival, SMP, Factions and such, so that means that it's like that the US was in precolonial times, with wilderness and "Native American" villages. To answer your question, I'm searching for a server hoster, who can along with other builders build highways and cities. I'm not going to do it all by myself.
