Welcome to Skylands! (made for 1.12!)
Explorer, Craft and Build on the beautifull islands of Skylands!
Find dungeons and explorer the world

In this map your survival is put to the test by traveling between islands, exploring the world and of course fighting the bosses around the world!

***The last pictures of the map (And the island group) are likely to change***

Please leave a comment on what i could improve or what your thoughts on the map are!
Some information about Skylands!
You start at the Runic Isle, from here you can travel to the other islands, on the spawn island you'll be able to find a book that holds information about the direction (what can be found north, south etc.).
Most of the new items are found around the starting islands, other islands may still have the old ones.
Custom mobs also exist with a ''level'' system, the higher the level, the stronger the creature is.

As of now most of Skylands is undergoing small or big changes so this information section is not complete.
In the future custom mobs will be updated aswell.

This map has around the following -
350+ Small Islands (35x35)
75+ Big Islands (150x150)
280+ Custom items (there are 9 tiers) (Soon to be replaced)
9 Massive Islands (750x750)
Bosses (Strong and weak bosses)
12 Bigger dungeons and multiple smaller ones
Some houses and other structures


Consider leaving a Diamond to let me know you like the map!


The size of this map currently is at least 7000 x 7000 blocks

Next update! (More to Come!!!) Release: ?

Cash banks: For the spiral tower (Found in the desert)

Hi, I flew some times around the jungle and, a few islands after it, I found a kind of piece of chunk with diamonds and gold blocks. Is it a bug or is it normal ? Because this "chunk" it's completing some other islands which are "normals".

I tried this map again, and when I took the "Skylands" folder, it tossed me in the void. I tried tping to coords of an island, and it's void.
Help?
  • Flamingler
  • Level 34

So you put the folder of the map (Not the rar file!!!) in your saves?
And then you load the world and spawn in void?
  • camocat9
  • Level 8
  • Apprentice Architect
  • February 7, 2018, 1:44 am
Yes. There are two folders in the download folder after you unpack them from the RAR. Skylands and Skylands(1). I've tried both folders in my saves, and neither work. One I spawn with 5 bread in the void, the other I spawn with nothing in the void. I've tried teleporting to some of the coords you put in the comments, and it is still in the void. I've had this problem before and posted it to you, but I stopped trying to fix it after a while. This map looks really cool and I would like try it out.

The map were you have the bread is the ''good'' folder you should use (did you try teleporting on this one?). Another issue might be that your pc/computer doesn't have enough space for the map (since the map is around 100mb, try deleting something you dont use and try agian). Besides that you could try updating java but i dont think that changes anything. If you still have problems after this one let me know.

If theres only a castle on a flat surface, than yes you have an outdated version, the updated version should look like the one on the picture

The actual problem is which it's not really a flat place, I see work on but there isn't lava netherack etc ...

I will re-download the map to test.

I tried to play this map in 1.12, but when I got the map up and joined it, it spawned me in the middle of the void with no land around. Any way to fix this?
This is amazing! I could never imagine myself doing something as complex and detailed as this, but practice makes perfect I guess. But it must have been super complicated and difficult to make! Did you use a program to do the terrain? I can only imagine the answer is yes, but if you didn't use a program, you are now the Emperor of Minecraft. Terrain is impossible for anyone I know (including myself) to do by hand. If you did, what did you use? I'd like to check it out :3

Thank you, and yes i did indeed use 2 programs and 2 plugings, i used worldpainter to create every bottem of the islands saved it / generated it into a minecraft world, then i would use MCedit to select the whole created bottem and flip it so it looks like an upside down mountain. After that i went back to worldpainter imported the flipped islands and made terrain for the top side. Althought i have not made everything like this, i also made quite a lot of islands using world edit (if you want to know how to do this search youtube) the terrain itself got modified with some world edit smoothing. Besides that i used voxelsniper to create the caverns and some add-ons to terrain

I hope this helped you
~Flamingler
Also, I seem to be unable to open the world once I download it. I don't think minecraft can use .rar files for a save. Do you have any suggestions?
  • Flamingler

Open the rar. file inthere should be a folder called "Skylands drag that into saves
How do I open it? Do I need a specific app for it?

Beautiful idea. Putting this on a server would be amazing - add in a guild / faction system and have people compete for resources on the islands to build their own flying fortresses in custom void worlds. Every month have tournaments over islands (that you can paste in via donations and custom made worlds) and get some dank prizes...

Some rambling but this map has so much potential. Wonderful job, and I look forward to the future of this project.

it actually looks like WorldPainter to me. There's some tricks you can do to make WorldPainter work like this.
