Nuchalnuth - Tropical Continent [3000 x 3000 Map] | Theme - tropical [1.7] Minecraft Map

Welcome to Nuchalnuth!

Journey of the Lone Wanderer starts here, in the tropical continent of Nuchalnuth.
Nuchalnuth - Tropical Continent [3000 x 3000 Map] | Theme - tropical [1.7] Minecraft Map
According to the ancient texts, Nuchalnuth is divided into three main regions:

Skaranach Highlands - mountainous area, northern part of Nuchalnuth.
Jingara - huge plain area stretching from north to south in the eastern part of Nuchalnuth.
Metnalba - dense jungles and tropical islands in the western area of Nuchalnuth.

Skaranach Highlands
The highlands differ depending on what area you're in. The eastern area, connecting to northern Jingara, is quite dry, though notably more hilly. To the West, however, the increasingly hilly terrain holds the clouds coming from the North, and the Western half of the Highlands is actually quite green.

Skaranach Highlands can be further divided into 2 parts - Eastern Skaranach (beautiful savanna) and Western Skaranach (heavy forested area called Skaranach Forest and Kuquain Heights).

Jingara is a region of arid, dry scrubland. The hills are low and rocky, and patchy grass sprouts like mangy fur from the landscape. It is the broad, south-eastern portion of Nuchalnuth.

Jingara can also be divided into 2 main parts - Northern Jingara and Southern Jingara. Northern Jingara is a desert, southern - mesa with glowing mushrooms (often called Jingaran Plataeu).

Nothing is more gorgeous than Metnalba - a home to ancient spirits. It is divided into 2 regions - Metnalba Jungles and tropical Tonako Islands.
It haves 2 unusual places - Natural Town and The Crown.

The underworld is a labyrinth of unusual caves located deep underground. The Underworld in Nuchalnuth is a very dark place located beneath mountains that separate Metnalba Jungles from Skaranach Highlands. This area is isolated from the outside world, this means that it is very difficult to enter it. Not much is known about this place, maybe you can discover more yourself?

Finding the entrance
There is only one entrance to the underworld. Look for the giant rock (second image) in the western Skaranach. You should also see giant spikes and glowing trees near the entrance.

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.

Could I get some coords for where land actually is? I spawned in a sea and my world generator is the only thing I've seen so far.

You have to open this map in 1.7 before opening it in a newer version. Maps made in 3rd party software tend to corrupt in any Minecraft version after Anvil.

I've added versions to titles of all my maps. If it says [1.7] then you can't play it on 1.8.
