A giant crater eroded over centuries and now we have a recessed lake slowly eating at the giant rock from space..

thank you for allowing me to your terrain to build on, you might not remember me i asked about a year ago if i could use your world for a build i wanted to do. its took me about year of chipping away here and there and now that i got a new computer i was able to make a youtube video on it so thats why i posted it so late, i gave you all the credit for the map i built my castle on and linked your build in my description, you should go check it http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/castle-of-kings-3277003/, thank you again

Hi There!

My name is Jack and I am an aspiring youtuber who focuses mainly on creating Minecraft videos. I am planning on making a pretty neat cinematic in the near future and I would like to use your map "Crater Lake" for a few shots in the video. It is beautifully made and offers a lot of neat, unique shot opportunities for me. 

Please respond and let me know if you would be willing to let me use your map in my video. The reason I am asking is because I value the work that you have done and I do not want you to get cheated on something you created. If you decide to give me permission, I will definitely give you credit in the description of the video, and i'll even Email you the link to the final product if you want!

You my friend have impressed the gods (even if Pluto is an underworld god :P)
This is.... AMAZING

I was wondering if I could use it for my server's spawn (the hub) and in the middle I will remove the rock and put the spawn? I will give you credit, of course.
How did you make the map? :P
Wow, this is impressive.
Hey dude I was wondering if I could use this map to make a project on because of the beautiful mountains and lake.

I will give you credit for the template that I built on.

Hey, I was thinking making a (huge) map in Worldpainter and it wasgoing to include a crater as a main feature, could I maybe use this as part of the map. I will credit you ect.

P.S. I saw you on /r/Worldpainter before I saw you here so yeah...

Anyways, thanks in advance.

I would like to be able to use this map for a server i am constructing, if i could that would be awesome! i will be changing some things though by the way such as putting a town in the middle of the lake and populating it a little with trees. it would make my life so much easier if i could.

PS you will (of course) get credit and if you tell me your IGN then i will give you the rank i am giving to the people helping me

PPS PM me to let me know because i will check that more

PPPS this was PMed and put on the map id like to use

If you were trying to replicate the actual crater lake in Oregon, Wizard island needs to be smaller. Awesome though :)

Dear Sir_Beret,
I was wondering if I have your permission to use this splendid map you have made, to make a castle on. I will post the final thing on Planet Minecraft ONLY if I have your permission. I will give you tons of credit for the amazing map, and I shall only give my self credit for the castle. So what do you say?
not that im him but, there is a similar comment above and he said "yeah go for it" so u should be legit, if u do wat u say u will =)
Yeah thanks! He responded and said I could use the map as the base for my city. So far it's coming along quite well though I haven't had time to work on it.. ):

That is a very creative creation you've got there. I use WorldPainter also. It's kinda obvious you used worldpainter because pine trees generate like that.

I love this map but the smiley face picture thats what really got me i laughed my ass off
Beret, Iv'e been constantly trying to find a good map to make my Nordinbad Dwarven City, Iv'e always wanted to make a HUGE underground city, Would it be ok if I can use this map to make it and post it on my friends server and MAYBE PMC? Since Nordinbad in War In The North is based at a large sloping snowy-peeked mountain and this place seems to have the most room and the slopes at more or less the right angle.

:D To create the halls of Nordinbad! This might take awhile..., also what might be the best way to clear out the centre rock and maybe the peeks of the mountains on one end to make a bridge going through?

just mine it or use mcedit. its all just rock. your best bet is WorldEdit
one problem... How do I get MCEdit/WorldEdit? I used to have MCEdit but it didnt work AT ALL.

This.. Is.... EPIC!!
