🚧⚠ Issues / Things to be aware of

As complexity rises, a small tweak or change can have unintended consequences, flaws, be just poor choices, or I maybe hit certain possibility limits of programs. These maps are really complex and hard to make, with dozens of steps and hundreds of layers to apply in the right order. And I'm just a non-magical-wizard boi making sometimes either a poor decision or an unintended mistake, but I want to let you know what might have an impact when playing this world, and here’s what I´ve noticed:

  • Nothing yet - all working as intended

Want to know what's coming next?
Check out this post: www.planetminecraft.com/blog/mcmeddons-roadmap/

The focus of this map was the reshaping and reworks of the base land and rivers. Combining them and refining the implementation of different terrain types and improved texturing for the environment

Yes, worlds are populated with plants, animals, and nature blocks.

Also Mobspawners with animals are scattered around the world.

Do you do commissions?Yes, but only in limited amounts per month - checkout Patreon for further details
PMC Member: "[...] Out of curiosity, if someone else uses your world to build things in and wanted to share, do you just request a credit?"
    • Yes always - please credit the origins of work / the creator. (people want to know where to find the stuff)
    • Redistributing or selling my Intellectual Property without consent is not allowed.
    • Showcase Submissions are allowed
    • (Backside info: I've spent hundreds of hours to achieve the knowledge to create those maps. And can spend days creating each Map. For the casual people: I encourage you to play..test and build on these maps. I actually like to see what you can do on/with them. I see my maps as canvases for people to explore and enjoy... what I don't like it when people just plainly say: I made that canvas, that's mine. [​analogy end] It's IP theft, disrespectful, and ungodly frustrating to deal with. And there are either Kids who just entered the internet and don't know better and there are 3rd Parties that do that intentionally)

7k Maps - 3584,3584
8k Maps - 4096,4096
Are there versions without structures?No, but the source files are available, with which you can remove structures and reexport the pure map (Explanation: Online Storage Space is my main concern)
Where are villages?In all the recent maps, Villages are placed near rivers.
- On PMC you can find often a overview map.
- You can also import the map into WorldPainter and export a image/overview map from there.

How can i remove the Villagers?/kill @e[​type=!player] (kills everything except the player)
Can I build on the map and sell it?Redistribution and commercial redistribution is NOT allowed
Can i continue playing your map after the subscription has ended?ofc, every map you´ve downloaded until the subscription end is on your pc, where you have full control over the map
Map recommendations?Checkout maps with a "🌟", these are my recommended ones
Bedrock: I´ve Spawned in water/vanilla area where's the map/spawn?You´ve spawned at 0,0, the top-left edge, at the map edge. Head towards ~ 2000,2000 for the map center.
(Explanation: This is program caused issue, as during the conversion the spawn point gets reset to 0,0. And while sometimes the area around seems vanilla, that's the pregenerated area i had to create in order to insert/convert the map into.)

    This map is so great and thanks a lot!

    Is it possible to load this map in 1.19 and not 1.19.3?

    I'm not very good with minecraft and I was wondering if there's a way

    Also, the map isn't showing in the Dynmap, I scrolled and looked for the map but I couldn't find it.
