This project covers an area between 16-56° north and 66-114° east. This includes all Central Asia, from northwest Kazakhstan to Cambodia; from southern Pakistan to Lake Baikal in Central Siberia.



The map has been generated on World Painter and it is 20017x21555 squares.



DEM data is derived from SRTM 90m DEM dataset by NASA, reprojected in WGS84/Pseudo-Mercator. One square in Minecraft equals 267 meters. The vertical exaggeration is 4.1 (mountains appear 4 times higher than they should be in scale)



Land uses have been extracted from MODIS Land Cover dataset by NASA. The resolution of this data was coarser than the elevation data, thus it may appear a bit “checkered”.



Water data (lakes) has been extracted from HydroSHEDS dataset by WWF.



I’ve used the largest number of biomes to enrich the diversity of land uses.

The player position is currently in the exact center of the map at coordinates: X: 10000, Z: 0, which corresponds to the northeastern part of the Tibetan Plateau in China. The spawn point is however in the upper right corner of the map

There are several custom tree models inside this project.


The project presents many errors that will be fixed with the last update:

-Farmable foods are placed all over croplands and the first 2 squares over those boundaries, causing them to pop off;

-The biome used for croplands is one from the End world (Small End Island), causing the sky to darken. This will be converted into Plains;

-World painter project has been subdivided into 5 parts to fit my poor laptop capacities. Due to a wrong map operation, all boundaries of these parts are made of stone/rock/cobblestone.



Next update will feature:

-Water: All rivers with length > 100km will be added. Lakes will be enhanced;

-Urban areas will be enhanced and improved using data from GHSL dataset by Europe Union
-The map will be available for Minecraft 1.14.4
