This is my third project in my custom terrain series, and by far the most difficult. The idea for this project was suggested by crazyazey12 in the comment section of my Canyons and Caves map.

To put this project together I relied on the heavy use of Worldpainter, MCEdit and SPC. Each large mountain was individually hand made in Worldpainter first, then pulled out with MCEdit and brought in the actual project for the final detailing and layout. Getting a consistent descent looking mountain maybe took around 25-30 tries alone, after that it must of taken at least another 25 tries to get all the sizes and different styles down.

I pretty much have all the large mountains created and imported in at this point. Some have almost all the detailing done while others I haven't even started on. I still might move or add in a few smaller ones depending on the space. I have also started messing with a basic vine type bridge system and completed two mountains so they are accessible on every single open level or tier.

I added a world save and schematic, only a few mountains are connected right now tho so you will need to build a bridge or have a fly mod to get to the others.

To do still:
Make final decision on the large mountains layout.
Add in any smaller floating island type items.
Create a bridge system to the rest of the mountains.
Make the rest of the mountains accessible on all levels.
Finish details/underside on large mountains.
Create a few small outpost areas.

I love your worlds, it's so good to have people like you too do the stuff for us so we don't have to get off our lazy asses to Fu*k around with the latest technology to make this sort of shit happen. :D (That means good job by the way)

wooo im in the description of a great achitect!!! and it looks awesome mate
Just a suggestion, when you add more of the smaller islands you could have them being rare ore jackpots. like have an unconnected small island floating above a large one and you can just see a couple of diamond blocks on the underside, and when you build up to it to mine it the whole island is packed with it xD and you could gauge it so that the more innaccesable or far out the island, the more rares are on it =)
Oh and maybe also make a "Wild" version without any manmade structures for ppl who want to work totally from scratch. Just D/Ld it, looks epic from ingame

The spawn island with all the bridges connected to it does have a small house you start off in now, I just didn't update any of the pictures to show it, it should be in the download files tho.

Thank you. The name of the external viewer is Eihort. It is really nice for long distance views and screenshots with no fog. It also runs pretty fast to while moving around, considering the render distance.
World save? This is amazing!
Awesome cant wait for the schematics
