Do you love vanilla Minecraft but have grown bored of the same generated structures? Looking for something new to explore and a new land to call your home?

Tired of finding the same ordinary structures in the Minecraft world, I decided to scour the internet and my imagination to come up with new structures to build and spread across a freshly generated land of my own called Nyvarld.

Nyvarld contains Over 100 Unique New Structures and Locations to Discover rebuilt from and inspired by builds from all over the internet Minecraft community, as well asplenty of my own creation. This includes things from battle towers and new dungeons to tents, houses, and farms. You'll find shrines, temples, giant trees, forts, ruins, towers, tree houses, and plenty more.

With Nyvarld, I hope to bring back the sense of adventure and exploration that Minecraft held when we first stumbled upon a new structure and wondered what it was, how it got there, and what sorts of treasures and secrets it held for us. But more than that, by building the structures into the already-generated terrain, I want to make some of the structures make sense in their surrounding and create some sense of history.

Since the Minecraft map is near-infinite, Nyvarld will always be a work in progress. However, there are still dozens of new locations and secrets to explore across the land,and plenty of room in between to build your own home and start your own empire. And once you journey beyond the boundaries of the known world, you can always expand Nyvarld by adding your own new structures.

And while Nyvarld is fantastic for lone wanderers and explorers, it is even more fun for parties adventuring together in groups on a server!

For more pictures, lore,and behind-the-scenes information on some of the builds, see my Imgur page here: http://spookyhappyfun.imgur.com/.

Additional Notes

Nyvarld is a large biome world that was designed for play with vanilla Minecraft.The world was generated in 1.5 and upgraded to work with 1.6.2. New structures end around 1000-2000 blocks from spawn, after which normal world gen takes over.

All known credit for inspired structures are compiled and listed in a book found near spawn (and links are also included in the "Build List" text document located in the world save folder). However, all content built in Nyvarld has been built exclusively by me based only on pictures and videos of others' builds. All are recreations and no schematics or other imported files were used.

Nyvarld is the result of almost 6 months of work, but there's always more to build. If you have recommendations or suggestions of new structures that you'd like to see, please message me and let me know. I'm always looking to expand the world and add new builds.

Also, please check out the links listed in the Build List, as there are some incredible builders and creators out there in the Minecraft community whose work should be acknowledged.

Nyvarld wouldn't be half the world it is if it weren't for all of them.

Good job with this map. I must have taken a lot of work and collaboration.
Thank you! It did take a lot of work, but only collaboration with myself and the internet.

Does this work in 1.7.4?
It glitches out in 1.7.4 and part of the map get overwritten. It really works best in 1.6.2.

lol, I like how you just punched a creeper face into a mountain.
Haha, thanks! But there's more to that mountain than just the creeper face. Hopefully you'll find it in your travels and you can thoroughly explore it.

This is really cool!
Thanks! I'm glad you like it.

Have you had a chance to give it a try yet? How many structures have you found?

My brother and I have found about 32 of all the structures and we are still looking!
Congratulations! That is some dedication!

I'm glad you're both enjoying it so much!

Which ones have been your favorites so far, and do you have any good stories from your adventures? I'd love to hear more about it!

We are still looking for the villager temple, which I am very excited to see. I love what you have done with the villages, making 1 superior house or the villages with just 1 house.

Update: We just found the witch tower!
You guys are in for a real treat! A real challenge, but a real treat as well!

Thanks so much for the compliments and for filling me in on your adventures. I really enjoy knowing that other people are having so much fun with Nyvarld.

Good luck with the rest of your travels!
The link is broken, brah
I overloaded Dropbox because the map is so huge. Try this link instead: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0hY8xYtSB7sc1YwUXZWR3Vidzg/edit?usp=sharing

I love the idea of this, Diamond.I know this is a giant awesome map because it has so much memory its taking forever to download :D. Also, do you have any mines?
Thanks! I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think!

Oh crap, 488.2 MB? This is huge :D

i also said if you have any mines in this map. If you don't can you add some :D
Yeah, it's a pretty massive world, but it's full of stuff to explore!

And there are all the normal generated abandoned mineshafts as well as a couple mineshaft entrances here and there. I think you'll be pleased.

And you can always add more as well.
Doesn't seem to have anything worth downloading, imo. There's just small everyday builds.
Well, the point was not to make an epic build, but to follow Mojang's lead with their structures and filla world with lots of new structures for a vanilla player to encounter in their travels. Tthere are over 100 locations and structures spread across thousands of blocks, all of which are full of secrets and stories and ready for adventure. I'm sure you can find something interesting in all that, but if not, that's just fine.

Thanks for the view and happy building!
Let me know what you think!

My sister made me cancel it because it was taking 8 hours to download and making the internet slow for some strange reason as my connection is usually great. I will try again later or when I go to my dad's and give you feedback on the map then :)
Sorry about that. I hope it works better later.
I need this. I need this. I need this.
It's coming. Just a couple more days.
I'm working on the last few structures tonight and tomorrow and it will be finished by the end of the weekend. Soon...

Wow - pretty impressive! I'm so gonna download this when it's finished :D
Thank you! I appreciate it!

The download should be coming by the end of the weekend, but feel free to subscribe or favorite it so you'll know when it happens.

I'll do both :D
H-MAN, you're the MAN!
are you building all of this in vanilla survival?
Goodness, no. Not at all. I use all kinds of tools, but I generally build in creative. There are dozens of structures and locations spread out over thousands of blocks, so building in survival just isn't feasable.

Plus I want the world to be as unique and interesting as possible for others to play and explore and building in survival would limit my abilities severely.

However, it is designed to be explored in vanilla survival. When I release the map in a week, I hope you check it out! Thanks for the comment!
O ok, well keep up the good work Diamond+Subscibe :)

Very nice work, I love your colossus, and the villager shrine is really good! Great work with the ideas! Keep at this project, and I think you could definitely create something really impressive out of it.


I think the colossus is one of the first things I built in Nyvarld when I started it, and the Villager Shrine and Wizard's Tower were two of the first large builds I've created on the map. There have been plenty more added since then.

I'm currently working on the last of the builds and, with luck, should have this thing done and ready for download in about a week.

Stay tuned!

Hahaha, I know the troubles of getting a project ready for download; I've finally just released mine (which was planned for yesterday), after pulling two weeks of all-nighters... so good luck to you, and I hope that you can get it released on time!
Final stages now. Fingers crossed!

Downloaded! Going to go and see it for myself now!
