This is Iskorlia, a 16km² huge custom Minecraft Multibiome landscape. The focus of this map the further improvement on the mountains, with an more experimental approach, combined with the updates to dozens of assets, and implementation of like 50 new bushes that will spawn everywhere. These new bushes should make it possible to get every tree type, without traveling the whole map. And make the life on your world and server easier. Dozens of more smaller improvements have been made to improve the quality and survivability on these maps.

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. It includes Spaghetti Caves, Cheese Caves, Lush Caves, Dripstone Caves, Crystal Caves, and Crystal Geodes, and plenty of exciting landscapes. This map is the sixth iteration of the integration of custom caves, leaned closer towards the original style of the upcoming 1.18 Update. A 4 km by 4 km realistic Minecraft island with custom biomes, made by McMeddon. It's an Island with multiple huge mountain ranges, steep cliffs, falls, plateaus, layered terrains and hard eroded areas, landform adjusted river systems and temperature-determined biomes. Find custom Mineshaft´s and explore the custom advanced biomes. Explore along the paths that connect the world, or take a boat and cross the ocean with a near-seamless transition to the default Minecraft Vanilla generation.

🚧⚠ 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: Map Version 1 will have missed out on Villagers and Ships, will be fixed in V2
- Generall: Crystal and Dripstone cave can create weird artifacts during the exportation when overlapping with other caves

- Bedrock: some unexpected blocks can appear, due errors from the conversion

    • Yes always - please credit the origins of work / the creator. (people want to know where to find the stuff)
    • Redistributing or selling my Intellectual Property without consent is not allowed.
    • Showcase Submissions are allowed
    • (Backside info: I've spent hundreds of hours to achieve the knowledge to create those maps. And can spend days on creating each 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. [​analogy end] It's IP theft, disrespectful, and ungodly frustrating to deal with. And there are either Kids who just entered the internet and dont know better and there are 3rd Parties that do that intentionally)

      Hey, I was thinking of using this map for a SMP that me and my friend would be running with other people, we would be also streaming and making videos on the server, so would it be fine to use the map if we credit you?
      And we would like to use this map because the map is amazing and would make it way more fun to play and build, would create more options for lore and make videos more interesting.
