I strongly recommend for all people using this map to redownload updated version. It fixes a lot of frustrating problems.




I dedicate this compilation of all my maps to everyone who loves custom fantasy landscapes in minecraft, especially to all my subscribers. So let's begin!

Welcome to Alerak!





Overview




This time I've decided not to create detailed description of each location. I'm leaving that to people that are going to use this map on their server. Instead, I will write a short summary of each region.

Geography




Alerak can be divided into 6 regions:
Bekilk - desert region
Skjall - arctic region
Parth - fields region
Marfeda - dense woods region
Galas - swamps region
Oposs - jungle region
There is also a seventh region located in the nether where great evil lives.


Bekilk - desert region
Large, hot and deadly place located in the northwestern part of the continent. It haves two deserts - one desert is red and filled with bones of large creatures, other is normal with sand dunes and oasis in the middle. There is also a savanna surrounded by mountains from all sides except south, water is common there, numerous lakes are located in that area. In the middle of Bekilk you can find the grand canyon where tall rocks stand for million of years.

Skjall - arctic region

Region of eternal winter. It's also the largest region on Alerak. It haves narrow valley fully surrounded by mountains with only one entrance and exit. Half of this valley is filled with snow the other half is more warm. The largest peninsula on Alerak is a part of Skjall. The further you go through this peninsula the colder it gets. Skjall peninsula contains dark taiga, snowy forests, icy frozen forests with huge spikes, frozen cracked lake that leads to icy caevrns underground and strange rock formations in the furthest part of the peninsula.

Parth - fields region

The most peaceful region in Alerak. Crops grow here all over the place. This place contains big island filled with crop fields, roads and a village. On the main land you can discover chilly birch forest with flowers, lake and a small waterfall.

Marfeda - woods region

Heavy forested region with a river, huge lake and many varieties of dedicious forests. Marfeda haves a valley with dead, dried trees where nothing can grow anymore.

Galas - swamps region
This region is filled with swamps, mushrooms and large trees. Swamp in the middle of this region is very moist, swamps around are more dry.

Oposs - jungle region
Region filled with rainforests. It contains small tropical island overgrown with giant palms. On the main land you can find huge rice fields surrounded by jungles.

Nether region
Nether region haves huge volcano in the middle of eruption located on the small island overgrown with demonic thorns and filled with bones. This island is surrounded by ocean of lava. Getting on the island might be difficult.

Developer's diary - click to reveal my diary
Alerak is a compilation of all my maps. I took everything that I learned while making previous maps and placed it into this map. This is also my biggest map ever created and probably one of the largest world machine maps publicly available. Making such complicated and detailed terrain takes a lot of time and effort, chances making a mistake somewhere are very big. This is why I'm open to all your reports and I'm eager to update this map from time to time. In conclusion, I hope you will enjoy playing on this map as much as I enjoyed creating it.
I'm going to take a break from terraforming and focus on my Lonely Wanderer maps later.

Note! Use Conquest texture pack by monsterfish to add more pretty textures to the mountains.

could you also give a link to the .world file so that i can edit for my own purpose (i wont share it with the public or claim it as my onw) but i would like to change the whole underground but that would destruct the "man-made" things at the ground ---> all trees and the other cool stuff

well pretty well done map anyways

I've been trying to download this map for almost a week. I finally manage to get the file downloaded (at a different internet connection) and then it says that the file is corrupted and cannot be opened. Is anyone else having this problem? Either it's just my computer hurting the file or the download is broken in some way... >:[

The file is fine. I'm afraid you have failed to download it correctly.
I suggest using Internet Download Manager, if you are on windows. It should speed-up the downloading process.

I have a question, were did you get the ice trees? I checked the packs you linked and the only thing that occurred to me is that you changed the block types of the Conquest Oaks, but what did you use for the really tall trees?
  • Darastlix
  • Level 68
  • High Grandmaster Terraformer
  • March 31, 2016, 10:40 am
As far as I can remember, all those trees are from monsterfish_ tree pack.

I looked in the repository and I did not find them, as I said before you could convert the block types but what about the big ice trees?

I must say, you always have me impressed, Darastlix. Just on a side note - where do you spawn? I need to orient myself so that I can travel to Oposs (one of the most impressive regions, in my opinion). Good luck out there making these stunningly fabulous worlds!

+1 Diamond! ;D Hey Darastlix, very recently I finished using Alerak (the updated version) in a fun little Minecraft cinematic that I've been working on for weeks. If you'd like to check it out, I think you'd really like how it turned out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjfiveTvLMg Also, I couldn't help but notice that this awesome world has no trailer above, just renders, which is fine but you know. I wouldn't mind at all if you used this cinematic as your trailer. What better way to support such an awesome world then a multi-media cinematic. Enjoy! ;)

Many things will turn into air in 1.8. If you can play it on 1.7, please play it on 1.7.

Hi, I'm not sure about a thing so I prefer to ask you : If I have a mod that needs special ores, I guess i'll need to generate more terrain to get those right ?
  • Darastlix
  • Level 68
  • High Grandmaster Terraformer
  • September 7, 2014, 2:30 pm
Unfortunately there is no other way.
I noticed you don't recommend playing this wonderful map on 1.8.  Is there a specific reason for that?  Also, I just wanted to make sure that your recent patch to the world wasn't the fix for 1.8 specifically.  If it is I'll jump right in and start playing in 1.8, but if not I'll wait if you had plans to update it in the near future.

Also, if you happen to find yourself interested in adding a few more items to this map, might I suggest some more islands in the nether?  That would be jolly.

Thank you for your contributions, Darastlix!

I don't recommend playing it on 1.8 because Mojang made changes to metadata. You still can play it on 1.8 but some weird things will happen to custom objects that were used for this map.
Here is an example:
1.7.x screenshot from my map: http://gyazo.com/c6c364b70798372f600e6a47870a0b0b
1.8 screenshot of the same area: http://gyazo.com/b6333d7aca68ce7dcd0f59b1e6ea9a75
Notice that there are no fences on the tree in 1.8.
As I said you can still play it on 1.8, although it isn't recommended.

If so, this IS survival compatible right? (And mod compatible? Non-land generating mods?)
  • Darastlix

It is survival compatible and you can use it for whatever you like. There are almost no restrictions.

How does it work? I don't run it on a server?
It says to Run '/dynmap webregister' and enter returned registration code, along with userid and password: 
/dynmap webregister? What is that? A command? A server? Pls help...
