Alerak - Power of Nature [8000 x 8000 special multiple biomes map] [1.7] Minecraft Map

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!


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.


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.

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.

Note 2! I recommend disabling lava spread, snow and ice formation if you want all the patterns to remain on this map.
This map works on 1.7.x and below! I don't recommend playing it on 1.8 snapshots

This world will corrupt badly in new versions. Make sure to open the world in 1.7 & explore the world first, then save before upgrading.

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'm afraid that .world file for this map is lost. My older maps were made on another computer and I forgot to backup them.
