Level 96 : Overlord Terraformer
5,807
Now that I finally have a new computer, and some new terraforming tools, I can start releasing some descent maps again, here is the first!

Terraforming Toolkit
For those that didn't already know, I recently released a set of worldedit scripts that give you some brand new terraforming brushes and tools. When I initially released them, I didn't have many good examples of how powerful they really were. So, the first thing I wanted to do after posting them was to make a map putting them to the true terraforming test. This map is the result.

100% of all the terraforming was done in singleplayer, with my custom worldedit brushes, specifically the fragment, erode and fill brush. The vine brush was used throughout for all the hanging glowstone and of course, vines. The water brush was used to create all the pools and lily pads, and a few unreleased brushes were used for trees and a several other items.



Map Features
70+ completely customized mushroom village trades, with reward systems.
10+ large, naturally detailed caverns, with glowstone lighting and hanging shards.
11 CTM style objective "capture" locations (No where near hardcore)
Caves come fully stocked with all natural occurring minerals and blocks.
Absolutely no sunlight! Who cares what time of the day it is!?

Rules
Very simple, survive. Also, you are allowed to break and craft anything, with two exceptions. You can not break anything in the starting cave, or the mushroom village. Only trading is allowed in the village, meaning don't steal/use/break their items, or anything in that cave, they are "safe" zones. That's it!

Credit and thanks to SethBling for all his awesome MCedit filters! The setbiome and createshops ones were both used in this map.
Progress: 90% Complete

This is awesome, but hard a bit. I found 5 eggs.
Okay, not at all happy. You took this map idea from my topic on the minecraft forums. Name and all. >:( I've been working on my crystal caverns map for months, getting stuck after 1.2.5 thanks to world edit not working right sense after that until recent. >.<

Seriously? Crystal Caverns is a pretty basic name, easy to be used my multiple peeps without knowing, and he uses Mushroom villages on other maps, like Sunken Island. And the rest.... its a giant cave with glowstone and ore, how is that STEALING A MAP IDEA?!? ANYONE could come up with it.

I use the term CTM pretty loosely on this map :D. It really is nowhere near what you and vechs put together, and was more for extra exploration encouragement if anything.

I really gotta work on making a map that i've been telling myself I was gonna make for a long time.... I'm counterproductive ^^;

Here's a diamond and favorite, this looks pretty darn epic ^.^!~

You my man, need to get yourself on a hosted server. Then you'd be able to wreak some havoc with your building skills. Plus it would take almost all the strain off of your computer.

Holy crap. Yet again, inHaze, you never cease to amaze.
I like it. :D
Beautiful. Minecraft could really use some kind of glowing crystals (besides glowstone). It's been overused in fantasy lately, but it still looks great and would create an amazing atmosphere in builds like this one.

Thanks! I did find a cool trick while making this where you alternate glowstone and web, and it makes it look like some cool glowing white crystal. You can see it in the 2nd pic.
I've never thought of doing something like that. It's a really nice effect!
