🚧⚠ Issues / Things to be aware about

As complexity rises, a small tweak or change can have unintended consequences, flaws, be just poor choices, or I maybe hit certain possibility limits of programs. These maps are really complexe and hard to make, with dozens of steps and hundreds of layers to apply in the right order. And im just a non-magical-wizard boi making sometimes either a poor decision or an unintended mistake, but I want to let you know what might have an impact when playing this world and here’s what I´ve noticed:

- 1.17 Bedrock: Villagers couldn't be moved to bedrock (reason can't be converted - program limitation), behavior pack to spawn the villagers is included
- 1.17 Bedrock: Some Chests don't have loot, unfortunately (reason: program limitation)

    • Yes always - please credit the origins of work / the creator. (people want to know where to find the stuff)

    • Showcase Submissions are allowed
    • (Backside info: I've spent hundreds of hours to achieve the knowledge to create those maps. And can spend days on creating each Map. For the casual people: I encourage you to play..test and build on these maps. I actually like to see what you can do on/with them. I see my maps as canvases for people to explore and enjoy... what i don't like is when people just plainly say: I made that canvas , that's mine. [​analogy end] It's IP theft, disrespectful, and ungodly frustrating to deal with. And there are either Kids who just entered the internet and dont know better and there are 3rd Parties that do that intentionally)

      Absolutely insane pillar mountains, and also absolutely insane regular mountains too! Did you use any world machine to generate portions or is it entirely done within worldpainter?
