This is another project made for my custom terrain series. This one features a large valley with lots of rainforest type trees spread all along the bottom, a large mangrove tree in the center, a huge waterfall in the corner, a massive cave system through all the surrounding mountains and lots more.

I created the base terrain in the worldpainter program, spending most of the time trying to get the valley walls to look as realistic as possible. After the valley was all laid out I individually created around 20 different rainforest trees in another world save with the MCEdit forester script and saved each one into a schematic so I could hand place them into the valley.

1.0 Update
I've updated this again to include a new mushroom section, a fix to the snow problem, and lots of other small details across the map. See the update log for the full list of changes.

Great Work I really would like if you build custom terrain of a jungle on a island
It is still a great world:)
I plan to use this for my 1.8 modpack. Do I have permission to use this?

Hi, I dont know if you still read this. If you do, I must say that I really enjoyed this map. I think that if you would create a similar one today, many people would love it, atleast I would. Please make another one :)

Sweet! I'm doing a project in school about the rainforest and putting it on youtube. Can I use this if I give you credit?
My name is CreepyMath.
I got a similiar question for you. InHaze..
The question is: May I borrow/use some parts of this map for my future-coming server?
I really love it, the plan is that it will be the fairy kingdom some sort.
I will give you credits, and I'll edit some of the terrain of course. :) But now without your permission.

I'd appreciate getting an answer soon as possible.

Yours sincerely

I am going to put a building of some kind on this map and was wondering if I could post it on PMC? Landscape and Enviroment credits will go to you!

Love it!! Here's a diamond...
Hello inHaze. I made an account just to ask you this, May I possibly use this as the base of my adventure map. You know like just the wilderness part. I'm not going to take any credit for the terrain just for the parts I build, I am going to give you credit as well! I am going to add some of my own buildings. The map is supposed to be something similar to Skyrim, Oblivion or any of the Elder Scrolls games in that matter. An example of something is: "Head over to the Mushroom Palace (A castle I would make in the Mushroom part) and assassinate à Sir Vanguard.
Do you think I could possibly copy the whole project, or some of it to my adventure map? I'll give you credit of course!

I love this map, but there needs to be loot in the Nether tree.

Is there anything in the Nether (That you made) other than the tree?
