TheBhinéka Islands are a mysterious group of islands discovered recently by the ship "Gloria." Incredibly the islands are split up into very diverse, climate zones, consisting of multiple biomes scattered around the area. The mystery of this occurrence is yet to be solved, however continued exploration of the islands may reveal their secrets.

I created these islands using VoxelSniper. Within them are four major biomes, including a desert, a very dense, dark forest, high mountains, and highlands. The highlands have multiple fjords cut out from them. There is also a very large tree located within the forest biome. This took a really long time, for this map turned out to be absolutely massive. Enjoy the pictures (rendered using Chunky) and feel free to download this map if you want to see it first hand.I plan to add towns and villages, so this may be updated containing those in the future. I also am considering making an adventure map based on the islands, so hopefully that will also come sooner than later. My friend wrote me a storyline so now it just needs to be implemented.

Feel free to showcase this map, play with it, etc. however please do not release a different version of it without letting me know. If you are making videos using this map please also tell me, but only because I would like to see them :) Thanks a bunch!

Have you ever used worldpainter?

I have used WorldPainter. It would have been very helpful for this project, at least just with getting a general terrain shape, but alas, this was purely VoxelSniper.

Yes, Worldpainter is very helpful, except for making cliffs.

A good workflow for custom terrain is to use worldpainter to set up the shape of the terrain, and then rough it up and add detail with VoxelSniper.

Yeah, I've heard that, but I've also heard that voxelsniper is only for servers.

Hey! I'm going to start a scripted youtube series (like a tv show?) and I'd love to record it on this "seed" I'll give credit everywhere I can! Thanks and I love it btw

Thats great! Judging by your quotation marks I assume you know this isn't a seed, but you probably don't want to advertise it as one. Just a suggestion, just in case. I'm glad you like it, and I hope it serves it's purpose.

No worries. I just didn't want you to call it a seed in your video, then receive TONS of comments from people asking what the seed was. Thanks again!

Description says Chunky. My GPU isn't powerful enough for those fabulous shaders, but Chunky is a spectacular alternative.

I can't promise that its release is nearby, just be sure to check my channel every now and then to see what I have released, your maps are on my list of things to do right now, but I am moving and starting school this week, so it might take some time.

Thanks! In most of the pictures you'll find the texture pack I made myself here. There are two or three that use the LB Photo Realism pack however.

This is amazing! The smoothing is a little outdone but I am thoroughly impressed with your style. I'm definitely throwing you a dia and a subscription :)

Thanks! I happen to agree with you. The smoothing is overdone in some spots... I think VS has a roughening tool as well though. Might try that out.
