This map has been updated to 1.8! Changes and update notes to come shortly.

Hillside Manor is now over four years old! Thank you to everyone for all the comments, support and encouragement over this time!

This was my first world ever, and my first attempt at making a house that was a little more pleasing to the eye and modern. The original design I used came from the picture included, although I decided to make it a little bit bigger and more complex than I initially was planning.


Thanks to axianerve for this awesome cinematic!

1.5 Update
Due to many requests over the last few months, I have finally updated this world. My original plan for this becoming an adventure map never quite came to fruition since my last update. However, since then, I have still added many new things to it since it is still by far my most popular map to date. A list of some of the changes can be found below. Also, I have used an old beta 1.3 copy of the game to get a brand new clean seed version of the map's changed areas for the people that want to create there own stuff, or just see want to see what it looked like before I started building on it.

Summary of Changes
-A new and completely customized village has been added with a very unique sponge farm area on the side.
-Another small village using the normal villager houses has been added across the way from the tower.
-Many new areas have been terraformed from the original terrain, to make them much better than before.
-New massive tree island and ravine section added featuring lots of the new tree styles.
-Many villagers and animals added in everywhere to make the world feel more alive.
-Several sections around the beginning of the waterslide have been updated to be much nicer.
-Many new trees from my Build Commands mod have been added over the majority of all old, and new areas.
-Several updates to the Egyptian section to make it more of a complete area than before.

Older 1.2.5 Update

Pre-Adventure Update

Over the last several weeks I have spent a lot of time working on this map. There have been many changes made and lots of new things added that will better suit my future plans for it. That of which will include adding in an adventure/questing/open world rpg type element, aided by the new villager mechanics. While waiting for the official 1.3 update I wanted to release this map now since it had been so long since it was updated, and to give people a look at some of the new changes, you will find a short list of some below.

Summary of Changes
-The water slide and starting section has been completely remodeled to look a lot better and more realistic.
-Much of the old generated terrain has been completely updated to better fit the current buildings.
-Several new re-terraformed sections have been created for future quest lines and buildings.
-Lots of updates to previously unfinished sections, and also many new unfinished sections under construction.

See the update log for a full, detailed list of changes, and map features.

The nostalgia. I remember playing this map almost 3 years ago. This is amazing, and I have never seen anything like it.
Does this support 1.7.10
One of the most unique and iconic maps out there. I remember sitting down and watching my older brother play it and explore it, later to blow it all up with TNT, haha, good days...

you've added so much to this that "hillside manor" has become a very misleading name. Chances are I still havent seen all of it! keep up the good work! (also why is your name orange instead of blue?)

The things you make are AWESOME!!!! Went on this spree where i checked almost all your posts and diamonded tons of them!!!
It seems to me that you no longer check your messages, but even so I was hoping if you would give me permission to use your map on my machinima videos. I'll give proper credit to you on all the videos I make with this map in the video description.

My channel's 'Chronos Pallas' if you would like to check out how your maps will be used. I've got almost 4000 subscribers and my videos average about 3000 views per. Thank you.
Seven you are out of your mind if you think this sucks. It's a nice starting house for your minecraft survival series on youtube. Just create a mine near it or under it like a mini basement and your're ready to go!
