Hello there!

##Check out the latest pictures & update logs!

I'm "WorldPainter", and I would call myself a beginner at WorldPainter. I often find myself struggling for motivation and leave projects half done so I've decided to create this project page.

I have decided to use this project to help others who are wanting to create worlds using WorldPainter by creating tutorials and sharing other people work such as Brushes, Trees & other schematics.

My Aims

- Become an expert at World Painter
- Create a 12k by 12k custom built world
  -> Containing over 15 custom biomes
- Contribute to the community

How can I contribute?

- Suggest a custom biome that I could create
   -> Tell me features, what you'd like it to look like
   -> Get credit when the project is completed
- Give me feedback! 
- Contribute to the project by discussing ideas, showing others the project and giving advice!

Start Date: 13/09/14

Update #7 - I'm still here! : by WorldPainter 09/20/2014 4:54:23 pmSep 20th, 2014


Sorry for not updating you guys recently, I've been focusing on work & trying to work on the map in my spare time. If you'd like to see some of the work I've done, I've uploaded 3 images onto the project page. 

In the images shown I have used plant & custom overground layers along with custom brushes & schematics. Not all of the trees are orginally mine so when I get to it I will link the packs I've got them from. 

Sorry it's brief, but thanks for keeping up with the project!

I've used Worldpainter for a while now. I think that your plan looks good :) If you are looking for a few tips I have a few.

- Make sure that everything is surrounded by water. This is because Minecraft generates the rest of the map normally outside of your border, meaning that any mountains on the border will just drop down.
- Use custome brushes! They are great and there are tons on Planet Minecraft that you can get and use. It will make your map look a lot better.
- People will get your map if it is unique. Try making some new biomes (only when you have got used to world painter)
- Finaly, try snowcapping your mountains!!!!

If you have any questions just PM me, I would be happy to help :)

Thanks for the advice, that's a good point about the water! I've already got custom brushes and thanks for the tips about making it unique. Have you got any advice on how to create custom trees (I know how to download them & apply them).

Hi, it looks like a good map. (the basic plan thingy :p)
I'm a worldpainter user and i can create pretty nice worlds with it.
so some tips for you :)

-use custom brushes, you can just search the web and you will find some nice brushes
-custom biomes are hard to make, i made a small list on my project. if you need some custom biomes idea's you 
 can take a look at it if you want :)
-make always arround everything you make a line of water. You will hate the look at the end of the map where the land will go down and go in to the ground. so make a line of water arround the vulcanic thing and the island, it will look a lot better in the end :D

if you want some more tips or you need to know how something works, feel free to PM me and ask how something work. I know almost every feature in worldpainter

Thanks for the advice! I've already got custom brushes but I'll have a look through your project for custom biomes. I presume your third point is making sure the water is at different depths? correct me if I'm wrong.

not really, i mean that if you make a world that ends with land, your land at the edge of your custom made world the land will go vertical down in to normal generated land.
to prevent that you need to make every custom made land end in an ocean you made.
so your will be always be surrounded by water.
i don't know if this make it better...
i hope you understand :)
