Introduction

Evergreen is part of my Dreamscapes series. This series features unique custom landscapes that can be enjoyed in both survival single and multi play.

The valley of Evergreen is surrounded by majestic snow capped mountains. Inside mountain ring lies the lush and vivid forest of ancient tree giants. The Mountains form natural border around the map, but nothing stops you from expanding your empire beyound the Evergreen valley. Vast lands that surround the valley are normal Minecraft generated terrain.

This is not an adventure map, or super hostile map, nor it is a puzzle quest with parkour challenges. And this is not a survival island themed map, where you need to survie with limited resources.

This is a custom landscape for Minecraft and it is ment to be played just like any randomly generated Minecraft map.

Features

Majestic mountain ring that surrounds the valley and serves as a natural border for the map and they blend the custom terrain seemlessly into the default Minecraft generated terrain.

Several giant trees. They could be described as "Elven" trees or "Pandora" trees.

Multi-colored grass!

Jungle like ground foliage.

Unique and beautiful jungle themed NPC village

Mysterious forgotten jungle temple

Performance

This map has a huge amount of leaf blocks, which are quite heavy for the engine to render. If you are having frame rate issues or hit by lag spikes with Far render distance, I suggest switching it into Normal. High resolution texturepacks can also be too much in this map, if your computer isn't up for the task.

I apoligize the possible need to adjust your graphic settings. I'm atleast 95% sure that the problem is the sheer amount of transparent leaf blocks, and there is quite little I can do about that without ruining the map. Very sorry. But I will continue to update this map and I try to find new ways to cut down the leafs without affecting the trees look too much.

Very nice. But the blending with the default terrain isn't quite seamless: to the south-west there are some rather unfortunate straight-edged cliffs. I haven't encountered any other spots that could use a little more polish, but exploring in survival mode is slow. Granted, I personally haven't figured out how to do blending with the default terrain at all, so I have no idea how easy or difficult a task that is.

Also, it seems that even though I spawned in survival mode, I don't seem to get hungry... Very odd.

Thank you for the comment. To be honest I haven't worked on this map for  long time, or any map for that matter, but if I someday find myself updating it again, I'll take a look at those cliffs. I'm afraid though that I didn't leave those cliffs there. The culprit might be the 1.7 terrain generator, which will cause that kind of chunk borders all around the pre-generated terrain.

Only thing I can think of why not getting hungry is that you are on peaceful.

You can use it. You can either use the whole are of the map or some part(s) of it. If you can, please send me a PM when you get your server up and running. I would like see what came out of this.

The map itself isn't very popular, so I'm glad whenever somebody finds alternative ways to use or enjoy my work. Only thing I ask is a kind request, and it won't be denied.
