🚧⚠ 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 complex 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)
- 1.17 Bedrock: Rooted Dirt couldn't be converted - will be replaced with a grassy dirt block called "undefined" (reason: program limitation)
- 1.17 Bedrock: Small Dripleaves coulndt be converted - will be replaced with a grassy dirt block called "undefined" (reason: program limitation)
- 1.17 Java: Altered 1-16 cores distribution, mostly shows in singleblock cores

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)

      I like the map, but there is only one thing I think you can do better for this map and that is to put more diamond veins, it is rarely to find a vein higher then 2. For the rest I like all your maps and also downloaded some of it!

      workin on it :) but level-wise i can say, they should be between 1-16 scattered, the thing is , if i increase the density - you will have an overabundance in caves, but okay levels during mining, trying to level it atm
