Hi everyone,

I'm happy to show you my latest project : A world map inspired by the DiscWorld, a serie of fantastic books written by Sir Terry Pratchett the now legendary british novelist and humorist.

The map was created following the exact shapes of the only map Pratchett ever released of the DiscWorld but since there is no such things as a detailed and exhaustive representation of this said world, I let imagination and my humble knowledge of the DiscWorld do the job.


The map itself was though to be both a survival experience and a great building ground. If you are a builder all you need to know is that the map is a wide free terrain to play around and the following renders might convince you. If you want to play on survival on this map, you'll find everything you need to know in the text below those images :)














The map is populated with caverns and ores from the layer 0 to 255 and each ore is findable in the same layers as in vanilla minecraft.
I just raised the odds of finding gold and diamonds a little bit ;)
Sea level is at 40 and the map is 6 000 blocks wide.

Every non craftable blocks and resources of vanilla minecraft is findable on this map in enough quantities. It includes prismarine and the new 1.10 magma block.

Every hostile and non hostile mobs are findable on this map, it includes 1.10 Polar Bears, Husk and Stray
Even 1.9 Shulkers disguised as clams and Guardians & Elder Guardians are presents !
See them in the screenshots !






Finally, You will find some structures on the map such as NPC villages, huts, one stronghold
(not findable with ender eyes but I put some clues to find it on the map) and some little extras.

You can use this map as you wish without asking me permission but:
you can't claim it as yours and you can't make money out of it

If you upload or show your projects based on this map: (and please do, i'll be glad to see your work), a credit and a link to this page and this page only is appreciated

Thanks to Sphaera for his overview render. And Thanks to Skydden for his cinematic !


Don't forget the

And if you have any questions, I'll try my best to answer it. See you !

Speechless! Good work mate! :)
I am going to make a server and I want a custom map.
Are you making custom maps for money?




That will be great! Keep up the good work!

This map is amazing. I'm planning on doing a hardcore survival playthrough on this, but can I have coordinates for the stronghold?
I really love this map but i want to build close to the End Protal. Can you my tell me where i can find it?

This looks like a great map but does it have a good cave system and are the rare blocks hard to find? Also what about shulker boxes? You could kill the clams right?

Super belle carte, j'utilisais "Le monde" sur mon serveur et tous adorait, j'aimerais relancer le serveur avec une carte 1.11.2 je sais que celle-ci est compatible 1.10 mais es-ce qu'il y aura des llama si je l'utilise en 1.11.2 ?

Merci encore pour tes magnifique création.

Salut Patrix,

Excuse moi pour la réponse un mois plus tard mais je ne suis plus trop dans le coup en ce moment.
Je pense que tu as trouvé une solution pour ton problème de lamas depuis le temps, aussi je vais simplement te répondre que je te remercie pour ton soutiens et je te souhaite bon jeu !

you're welcome :p
Wow
Most excellent. It renders so gorgeously in this pack. Mountains are so realistically mountainy. Of course, you're missing a continent. And assorted small bits from the map.

But hyper muy exellente without doubt just the same.
👍
WIch texture pack are you using?????????????????

If I install mods like tinkers is there a way of spawning the ores in the map?????????

Can you make some achievements and goals, which will definitely improve the joy of playing the map in survival mode.

Super map! J'avais déjà télécharger ta map de 16000 bloques, et celle la est tout aussi bien... Par contre tu aurais des coordonner, pour les villes le stronghold, le bord de la map etc... Et au passage, t'as pensé a faire Ankh Morpork?
  • Moonti
  • Level 68
  • High Grandmaster Terraformer
  • July 21, 2016, 2:14 pm
Le Stronghold est au centre de la map, dans la plus haute montagne, il est super simple à trouver. Pour les coordonnées nan j'ai rien du tout, explores le monde en mode spectateur tu trouveras vite tout, la map est pas si grande et les screenshots donnent une bonne indication de l'emplacement des builds. Concernant Ankh-Morpok, il s'agit de construire une ville tentaculaire, je laisse cette tâche à d'autres builders plus experimentés (et plus motivés) que moi !
Looks awesome! Do you have any coordinates to key locations though?

Je les ai tous construit moi même :p (sauf un ou deux chênes et des sapins piqués je sais plus où)
Du coup ils ne sont disponibles nul part ailleurs que sur mes cartes. Si néanmoins l'envie te prend de les copier avec MC Edit (et je suis contre) pense au moins à me créditer si tu les réutilises ailleurs.

Amazing as always!!! +1 Diamond and Favorited. Did you mainly use the default brushes for this map?
  • Moonti
  • Level 68
  • High Grandmaster Terraformer
  • July 5, 2016, 11:03 pm
Only few places are done with the default brushes here, Like the glaciers and the ice field, the base of the mountains, the plains, some hills and sandunes, the rivers and the prominent peaks. the rest need the use of custom brushes to add details without wasting hours and hours but I still use them like I would use the default: by painting, dragging the cursor, and sculpting; not clicking at one point and raising the same structure over and over again.
  • Plinkster702
  • Level 27
  • Expert Mountaineer
  • August 15, 2016, 6:13 am
So dragging the cursor is better than clicking at one point? Doesn't that make the mountains (or other parts) too smooth? I remember you saying that you used the pencil tool extensively in your other maps; in what ways did you use it?
  • Moonti
  • Level 68
  • High Grandmaster Terraformer
  • August 16, 2016, 2:24 pm
It's my way to do things, every time I try to explain how I do, no one really gets what I mean.
I just use worldpainter like I would use Microsoft Paint or kinda.
When raising a structure my cursor is not steady. I dragg it around, play with the intensities and the size of the brush, I insist on the ridges, I dig between ridges, I place the cursor over the mountain few seconds to raise a peak, I dig on the side of the mountain with the flatten tool to make a cliff etc etc.

Well done man! I was curious if you could offer some tips on how you did the snow layer on the frozen water fall screenshots. Thanks!!
  • Moonti
  • Level 68
  • High Grandmaster Terraformer
  • July 5, 2016, 1:21 am
It was though to be a glacier but now that I look it that way, a frozen waterfall make sens too. Anyway, I just made everything snow and placed the packed ice above 60% inclination then I painted the frozen layer on snow only. But you have to know that the terrain of the icefall/glacier was first "clawed" with a custom brush to make an uneven surface like crevasses.

Another fantastic map, Moonti! I was a huge fan of Le Monde and I used it in my private server. Unfortunately, we'll be using mods next time around, and I'm so sad now that I know this exists! I was wondering if you would ever release the WorldPainter file, so I could possibly add modded structures, if possible. But this map is fantastic! I'll be checking it out now. Thank you, Moonti for your amazing maps!
Love this as much as LeMonde. Do you have a coordinate map for this one as well?
  • Moonti
  • Level 68
  • High Grandmaster Terraformer
  • July 4, 2016, 10:44 am
No coordinate map but it's easy to figure it out: the centre of the circle is 0,0 and the radius is 6000 blocks wide.

Comment souvent, les français savent sortir du lot.... Tu nous livres ici une map d'une plus petite taille que "Le Monde" mais qui est beaucoup plus aboutie et mieux finie. En tout cas, heureux qu'un si talentueux builder soit revenu dans la communauté Minecraft et j'ai hâte de voir ce que tu nous prépare d'autre !

Salut Jojo,
Merci pour tes éloges et oui il y a bien de la canne à sucre :D Il y a même des nénuphars et des cactus !
J'étais absolument persuadé que je ne toucherais jamais plus à worldpainter depuis deux ans donc si je refais une map un de ces quatre qui sait quand ça arrivera !
Pour le nom, je l'avais d’abord en français: "Le Fardeau de la Tortue" ça sonnait comme le radeau de la méduse ça m'a plu. Je l'ai ensuite anglicisé. T'as qu'à utiliser le nom FR ;)

I already was a big fan of your work and to see this map up this morning was simply a 'wow' moment for me. What a great honor for Pratchett. I hope this map gets as successful as LeMonde did for you. It is just unfortunate that Pratchett is no longer with us because no doubt the Minecraft Community would've made this project big and popular enough to gain even his attention. Well, we can hope at least his family see it and I'm sure they will have a smile miles wide.

You are a very talented individual, Moonti. I look forward to exploring the magic of this map. I just hope I don't dig too far down and end up on A'Tuin's back!
