Nolwar - lands of winter patterns [4000 x 4000 map] | Theme - winter [1.7] Minecraft Map

Welcome to Nolwar!

From sunny and hot [url=/project/nuchalnuth---epic-tropical-paradise/]Nuchalnuth [/url]to lands of eternal winter. Our journey takes us to Nolwar Archipelago.

Nolwar Archipelago is cursed to never see summer. It is located somewhere in the middle of frozen oceans.

Nolwar Archipelago consists of two islands, one island is called Heimlaug and another Nolwar. Legends say that you can enter sea between two islands only by sailing through Gates of Nolwar. This sea is called Crystal Sea.

Gates of Nolwar

Some believe that Gates of Nolwar were made by mother nature, others that they were built by mysterious ancient race that disappeared without leaving any signs of their presence. Gates of Nolwar resemble a gargantuan ice bridge that connects Heimlaug with Nolwar. Near this bridge you can find huge ice rocks that are similar to organic columns.


Heimlaug is a lot warmer and smaller than Nolwar. This island is overgrown with old birch forests. Gorgeous, snowy mountains rise in the middle of this island. Heimlaug also haves a volcano, it erupted ages ago and now snow covers its slopes. Northern coast of Heimplaug is very unique, centuries ago it collapsed and now it haves very unique shape. This coast is often referred as Fallen Coast.


Nolwar is a lot bigger and colder than Heimlaug. Near Nolwar stands King of Rocks - mighty, frozen rock, overgrown with moss and young spruce trees. Legends say that in the ancient times a huge city stood in Nolwar, but it was crushed by meteor because Gods were angry at its people. This place is now called Oium. The warmest place in Nolwar is named Caes Valley, it is surrounded by three mighty highlands - Majestic Tundra, Myvillon and Nolwar Highlands. In the eastern part of Nolwar there is a place called Icy Xarzith Planes, these planes are so cold that nothing can grow there. River Niarh runs through Nolwar splitting the island into two parts.

It takes a lot of knowledge and effort to make such maps. Things above are appreciated! :)
Important about ice and snow!
This map is very delicate. Ice and snow patterns can be lost after playing for long because minecraft covers everything with snow and freezes water. You should use some kind of world protection!
Have any questions? Post them in the comments.
Note! Use Conquest texture pack by monsterfish to add more pretty textures to the mountains.
Enjoy summer while you can!

This map is difficult to convert into modern & only looks as-intended in 1.7. Updating to 1.8 or latter causes all of the gravel to cave in, leaving an extremely pock-marked landscape. The trees & ice remain intact, but the mountains look crazy. You also have to fully explore the map in 1.7 & save before converting or the map gets a chunk-overwright.
