Features & Info

  • The map includes some of the Ered Nimrais around the Deeping-coomb, alongside the Deeping Stream flowing out through the Deeping Wall. It also, of course, includes the Hornburg, the tower with the Horn of Helm Hammerhand atop it, the keep, and the Glittering Caves.
  • The dimensions of the map are 649 x 436 blocks exactly.

You can play it on 1.14 too, just not 1.12 or below.
The reason why it's on 1.13 is we actually built it a while ago, and only just got round to release.

The mountains are incredible. How were they done?

Wouldn't say these are the best we've got, but the process goes more or less as follows:

1. Lay in shapes using sphere brush, preferably with a -p tag so it mimics falling sand brushes.

2. Use Voxelsniper's `/b e` lift and `/b e melt` to make the spheres much less obvious and to get the overall shape you need. Slowly go down in brush size for the details.

3. Use some kind of smoothing on the mountains.

4. Use the smooth snow method to get the snow caps - here's a link more or less explaining how this works https://t.co/XBch87JoHK (By DecoratedMC)

5. Set materials for the rest of the mountain range - in this case, it was done mostly using the angle mask and #simplex pattern. A good place to go to learn about using certain Worldedit/FAWE commands is on this github page: https://github.com/boy0001/FastAsyncWorldedit/wiki/Commands#masks-edittop
