Working off of a tileset and map, I am recreating the original Hyrule from The Legend Of Zelda for the NES. I have now finished the basic overworld map, the only thing left to do right now is make all the secret rooms underground, like the first one where the old man says "It's dangerous to go alone, take this!"

To make it, I am not using MCEdit, though I did download a world created with it. Someone posted a completely flat dirt world that's perfect for my needs. If I could find it again, I'd give them credit. I'm building it all by hand, but I'm using both INVedit and Single Player Commands for materials. The world also spawns in a snow biome, which is incredibly annoying to have to type "/thaw 200" every two minutes when my lakes and rivers freeze over, and "/weather rain" to turn off the constant snow. But oh well. If anyone knows how to fix this, please PM me.

I may or may not tackle the dungeons, as they'd be kind of hard to logically place beneath the Overworld. If I do them, it may be in the Nether, I haven't decided.

Additional Notes

This is the texture pack I started out using, and I've actually been working with its creator to tweak it for my needs:


At this point I've changed it so much it's only about 40% alike with that texture pack. I don't think I'm going to upload this world, cause it's necessary to have my version of the Zelda texturepack in order for it to make any sense whatsoever.

Lookin good bud, can't wait to see it when it's complete. Have you checked out the update to the texture pack recently? I swapped a few things around to make it all look better, you should try it out. :D

However, you might need to edit some of your areas from one type of block into another.

This looks great! If you DO upload the world, add the texture pack along with it in the download. And yeah, the dungeons could be in the nether. OR EVEN THE AETHER. =P (so ghasts wouldn't spawn and wreck the dungeons) Well, Zephyrs could be a slight problem...

And I guess you could use something like MCEdit for the biomes...

Thanks! Yeah I was seriously considering putting the dungeons in the Nether. Just not sure if I can rig the portals the right way, you know?

Or you could put tunnels that led to the dungeons, outside of the actual map.
