This is another project in my custom terrain series which was requested a while back. The main theme of this one is a desert environment with a few other features included.

Like my other terrain projects I used the worldpainter app to create most of the land along with worldedit and MCedit for some small detailing. The land size that was custom made was 512x but I decided it looked to small and the void area too close so I added some random hills and mountains ranges to the outside area to make it 1024x.

The map features a large desert area covering the whole terrain with a few small oasis type areas added in. In addition, I also included some large dune like hills, a few mountains, a section with some sand spires, some deep pits with large cave systems attached and also a few different sized pyramids.

Additional Notes

Need help installing this project? See my Projects Guide for full instructions and other helpful info.

The world save land size is 1024x1024 with the outlying desert, while the schematics land size is 512x512 and only contains the main part of the land.

Really cool, started a neat fallout thing here. but one suggestion is too change your biome from snowy :P kinda defeats a desert if by two storms pass its a frozen tundra.

Great map except it's a snow biome in 1.4.7 and now my custom world on a mod pack is GONE because of this. I can remove the snow in mcedit but that'll removed the custom content...

Is it ok if I use this as a base for my new custom map? I'm gonna transform the sand to stone and mycelium so it looks like earth after the apocalypse and this custom terrain looks perfect for my map! :) Your name will of course be in the credits, and I'm going to give the map a diamond :D Please answer as fast as you can!

I wanted to ask for permission to use it in a map I'm working on as well, but this is InHaze. He is too popular to want to let anyone use his work. (All people think like that, because when you have made something so popular that you have benefited from, why let some random guy use YOUR work?)

Do you mind if I use this to make a desert village? I'm sure I will credit you for the terrain. :)
