Welcome to Iaven!

From perfect world of balance of Meiva, to the lands of magic colors. Lone wanderer travels to Iaven to search there for the way to his lost home Theia.

Iaven is a magic island where each season, be it winter, spring, summer or autumn, lasts no longer than week. Iaven can be divided into four main regions - Lena Delta, White Winter, Nedgeradak and Tonash.

Lena Delta
Iaven is constantly torn apart by unbelievably strong river called Lena. Lena river changes its shape almost every day, forming ridiculously complicated maze of small streams. This place is called Lena Delta or as some might call it The Water Maze. Western part of Lena Delta is more dry, Lena rarely reaches this part. Here for thousands of years stand Vimcia Rocks. These massive rocks were carried to Iaven by giants or dragons. Nobody knows the truth. Southwestern part of Lena Delta contains huge crater. Theories suggest, that one of the giants dropped his rock here, then he picked it up and carried it to the north.

White winter
White winter in autumn, sunny spring in winter, hot summer in spring, golden autumn in summer. This place haves many names and all of them perfectly describe it. In the heart of this place, on an island, there is a tree called Ethuil or The Tree of Next Season. In the autumn, this tree is covered by the snow. Four spirits live in the tree. One of them is called Grikad - spirit of Autumn, others are called Rhiv, Celu and Laer (winter, spring and summer respectively). They are the masters of all four seasons.

Maze of stones and bushes. Located in the south from Lena Delta, this place is extremely easy to get lost in. Eastern part of Nedgeradak is overgrown with giant bushes, forming a wild labyrinth, it's called Miruvoris . Western part is similar to giant stone maze, people that went there and returned called it Ondren. Miruvoris and Onren are separated by strange rock formation simply called Snowy Terraces, because snow always lies there even in the summer.

Tonash is located in the eastern part of Iaven. This place is overgrown with forests, it also contains huge rocks that formed here naturally. Giants called these rocks Gondra. In the southern part of Tonash, you can discover hills very similar to hills in Meiva. That is why people called this place Winimus, to honor Meiva God Winimo.



Survival ready map, with many layers of caves full of resources.
Very complicated environment, influenced by the real place on earth. (Lena Delta)
Landscape created fully in World Machine & Vue.

-What software were used to make this map?
Vue, World Machine, World painter, World edit, McEdit, Voxel Sniper, Build Commands & more
-What software do you use to render images?
All images were rendered in chunky.
-Can I play survival on this map?
Yes you can.
-Are there any villages, mines, strongholds etc. on the map?
No. This map contains only pure nature.

Developers Diary- click to reveal
Idea for Iaven sparkled right after releasing Meiva. Creating Iaven was the biggest challenge that I ever had... Mainly because of three things:
1. Lena delta - after imbilio showed me this image, I decided, that I have to use it on my next map no matter what. Adding these rivers into the landscape was extremely difficult and time consuming.
2. Colors of Autumn - there is now way to easily change color of leaves in minecraft. I had to figure out how to modify texture packs to add colors that I need and where I need them. Sadly, no matter what, colors won't look as on the renders (hard to explain why in few words).
3. The Tree of Next Season - building the giant tree is... Well, it is hard as hell. Huge thanks to Plutouthere for tips that he gave me.

Adding magic to colors
Don't expect to see autumn without any texture pack. Download THESE files.
Follow steps below to enable custom colors of leaves in your texture pack:
1. Go to “%appdata%/.minecraft/resourcepacks/”
2. Go into your resource pack archive.
3. Locate folder colormap, it is usually located in folder assets/minecraft/textures
4. Copy foliage.png & grass.png images into this folder in your texture pack

I'd really like to use this map for my server, but for some reason I can't seem to get the map to pop up. i've extracted the file and dragged it all into my server's world, but the island won't pop up and only the world does.

Do you know how to make it so that the island pops up? Any help is appreciated.

Make sure you copied the files correctly. Content from the main Iaven folder must be copied to "world" folder.

Teleport to (1808, 255, 1656). If it still won't work then most likely you haven't installed it correctly.

Update: You haven't installed it correctly. Just checked it on spigot-1.11.2 and everything works.

This is epic. Incredibly epic. How does one even make things so beautiful? I hope you don't mind me stealing the idea for the giant rocks. Because I'm so doing that in my next whatever.

Just a personal opinion:
Under the "Feel free to" I think you should add that you want credit for the map in the description of the video the uploader posts. Simply for more downloads and recognition. ^^

I am writing this because a person by the name of Samgladiator has made his own RP with the map, monitized it, and didn't give you credit for the map at all.

I just feel as if you're being cheated in the way. You did very well on this map, keep up the fantastic work!

May i use this for a modpack?
Incredible realism. Serious talent. Kudos.
I installed the png files but I still don't have autumn colors. I'm using the Ozo texture pack. I replaced the files in the folder with yours but no change :/
*edit* The trees don't change but the grass does

Oh it's world machine and vue. Is the vue you use by eon software? or is it the Visual Understanding Enviroment one? Also, I don't know how to use world machine and it is way to expensive for me.

Hey Darastlix, yesterday I finished using "Iaven - Magic of Colors" in my latest Minecraft shader showcase. Here's a link to it if you'd like to give it a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhV4ckgu3ec  If you'd like to use the video to go along with your awesome renders, I'd be completely fine with it. :) +1 Diamond

Huge diamond for this map ;)
Really nice renders ^^
Amazing work man. I'm thinking about using one of your landscapes for an adventure map I've been planning but i just can't... decide... which.

When the map is released, you will get credit for your work of course.

:0 H-h-hol-ly crap...
These projects make me cry because I know I will never equal up to this. I am totaly downloading.
Also, you need to find a way to get this map put up on a server like MineZ or something, because this map would be perfect for it.
Posted a day ago and you're already half way to having as many diamonds as all my past years mods combined.

Impressive and certainly well earned. It'd be interesting to get an adventure-mode server with this on to save the huge download, and just allow flight mode :P
