Level 97 : Overlord Terraformer
This is going to be the first in a series of custom made terrain maps I plan on creating. The idea came to me after doing a lot of terraforming to my pit mine project and having lots of fun with it.

Most of my other terrain editing had been almost exclusively done thru the worldedit mod which can be nice for small things but not so good at trying to change or generate large sections. For this project I chose to use the worldpainter app to create the base section of land then did fine editing with worldedit.

My only initial goal for this map was to create a highly elevated land area with lots of very deep canyons cutting thru the whole land. After getting it the way I wanted it to look I started to play with the worldpainter cavern tool which is how I ended up adding those in.

The average elevation of the regular land is about 110 with most of the canyons reaching down to around the mid 30s level, so they are all pretty deep. Along with the deep canyons I maxed the cavern setting in worldpainter so there are huge caves and caverns that cut in and out of the land. I also added small house for the spawn area and some rope bridges to get around easier

I know a few more terrain maps I'd like to make but am welcoming all ideas, suggestions or requests anyone might have. Let me know what cool terrain you would like to see!

Additional Notes

The custom terrain land size is 512 x 512.

inHaze, can you please give me the map without any structures? Because I'm really looking for a proper custom terrain that will fit my new project. I will totally give full credit for the terrain when I post the project. :)
