Imagine stepping through a portal into a twilight realm, filled with trees as far as they eye can see. Breathtaking vistas and amazing discoveries await you around every corner. But beware! Not all denizens of the forest respond to your intrusion lightly.
Updated March 29th to version 2.3.5. This version supports Minecraft 1.7.10. New in this version, the Snow Queen rules over the Aurora Palace high atop the glacier, while trolls inhabit caves deep in the rock of the highlands. In addition to these new areas to explore, this version also revises the progression system to feature very visible weather effects in "locked" biomes, instead of less-visible magic effects. Version 2.3.4 adds a /tfprogress command to advance a player's progress, as well as hint monsters that may appear if you're struggling with the progression system. Version 2.3.5 fixes bugs, adds the knightmetal block-and-chain tool and adds a bit of new swamp scenery.
If you haven't played one of the 2.0 versions, there is a new progression system. See the details on the wiki page.

To make a portal to the Twilight Forest, make a 2 x 2 shallow pool (4 squares) of water in a grassy area, and surround it entirely with natural stuff. Flowers, mushrooms or tall grass. Then throw a diamond in (with the "Q" key, by default) and stand back!
It should look a little like this:

Sounds like an EXCELLENT Mod off for a good start, will keep following you on this. Good, creative ideas, a good atmosphere, etc. Just imagining what could be done with this :smile.gif: Congratulations and thanks!
Looks cool so far! With all the torches on the trees, getting lost is going to be an issue for those of us that look for our lighted paths on the way back to shelter. Giant fireflies are going to be such an awesome mob!
hang on lemme get my jaw off the floor, you should look at vech's super hostile Canopy Carnage map for inspiration, but be sure to ask for permission if you plan on using any of it heres a link for you
will we be able to turn into dog's? and go around talking to lakes?
anyway very nice looking and I'm sure will be a big mod one day, just keep working and ignore the guys who say:
