Thanks a lot guys! (: I used worldpainter. It's incredible for forming terrain. I haven't even scratched the surface of it yet. Should I continue to add continents or just leave it the way it is for now?
Yes. I think that will be part of the incentive of traveling to the different continents. Perhaps the new continent I just added will contain a portal to the end, and the only way to get to the portal will be through completing various challenges on the continent. Same with the nether, but on a different continent. Tell me what you think? (:
Perhaps there could be nether and end variants of the islands, the nether one is almost the same but netherrack and soulsand with random nether wart growing and have random patches of dirt with very few trees, also, make a forest of cobblestone trees, some people will get the reference, it would be surrounded by lava (obviously) and have a nether fort on it or something, in the end there could be a sort of similar thing with end equivalents or something completely different, that's just an idea.
By "leveled snow", I assume you mean the different height of the snow blocks? I think that "World Painter" integrates it somehow. It might have been the fact that I combined a snowy biome with a top layer of snow. I'm not really sure :/
Tried out messing with the nether yet? Anyway, I don't know how this could get any better, this needs more publicity, anyway, it's to bad we can't incorporate any of the biomes O plenty mod, they are great and would make the island look great, maybe you could look at some of the biomes on the forum page for inspiration for new areas, sorry if this is a bit random :/ I just like the mod and it adds a lot of cool things, it's also just a cool mod to check out if you haven't already
Recently went through the map on creative to see the new additions and read all the diarys and I like what I see, the story has been improved nicely and the new landscapes are great
Is JRJ going to live on the nether island or something? That would be a good way to transition into the nether. He could like find a way to change back or something and have to go to the end to do it then head back and the way to end it would be like he ends up on the main land which is naturally spawned and then it works just like normal survival from there. Tell me what you think of these ideas.
Yeah. I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with the rest of the story
I think that I will incorporate the end and nether into it. I might create a fortress in the end that can be reached at the bottom of the pool in the desert? Or the nether. I will probably add parkour in the fortress.
