Iaven - Magic of Colors [6000 x 6000 map] | Theme - Autumn [1.8] Minecraft Map

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.

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.

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

It looks really beautiful up close & personal. Even the water looks gorgeous at night with the ice pattern.

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.

Alright, I copied the files exactly, but Its still not working. All I get is an endless ocean with a few scarce islands every now and then.

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.
