This is Hakardion, a 16km² huge custom Minecraft Multibiome landscape. The focus of this map was the development of the savanna, the addition of 50 new assets and the update to 100+ plants, to increase the ease and survivability of future maps. This map made trees better to chop down, added dozens of lootable structures, and basically added a full new biome. This should make your

With self-made 1.18 Cave and Cliff terrain features to this world as well as dozens of Structure Updates to you for 1.17. This is a huge 16km² custom Minecraft Multibiome continent and the next iteration to Hakardion.

🚧⚠ Issues / Things to be aware about

As complexity rises, a small tweak or change can have unintended consequences, flaws, be just poor choices, or I maybe hit certain possibility limits of programs. These maps are really complex and hard to make, with dozens of steps and hundreds of layers to apply in the right order. And im just a non-magical-wizard boi making sometimes either a poor decision or an unintended mistake, but I want to let you know what might have an impact when playing this world and here’s what I´ve noticed:

- Generall: Crystal and Dripstone cave can create weird artifacts during the exportation when overlapping with other caves
- 1.17 Bedrock: Villagers couldn't be moved to bedrock (reason can't be converted - program limitation), behavior pack to spawn the villagers is included
- 1.17 Bedrock: Some Chests don't have loot, unfortunately (reason: program limitation)
- 1.17 Bedrock: Rooted Dirt couldn't be converted - will be replaced with a grassy dirt block called "undefined" (reason: program limitation)
- 1.17 Bedrock: Small Dripleaves couldn't be converted - will be replaced with a grassy dirt block called "undefined" (reason: program limitation)
- 1.17 Bedrock: Weird initial Spawnpoint at the edge of the map

For the casual people: I encourage you to play..test and build on these maps. I actually like to see what you can do on/with them. I see my maps as canvases for people to explore and enjoy... what i don't like is when people just plainly say: I made that canvas , that's mine.

      Hello! I love your maps but I also love using mods and I noticed you mention if I travel away from your islands I can reach default minecraft land. Would that mean I can use terrain generator mods without messing up your custom map? I would love to make your island my home while exploring modded minecraft with the SimplyImprovedTerrain mod. i'm not sure the best place to get a response so I'll comment on your Patreon as well! Thanks again!

      This should be correct. The reasoning being that the chunks have already been loaded and won't delete
