So, like all, I tend to generate a ton of maps and usually they only last enough time for me to explore them, see if it's adequate enough, and if not I delete it and generate another. This one map has blown me out of the water with its sheer gorgeousness. Nothing on this map has been modified! The spawn area was the only area that was touched throughout this whole thing and it was to harvest/plant trees.
I kept the pics small since I did not want them extremely huge, if they need resized I will re-edit this post.
The first spawn area pic - taken from the hillside to show the floating island hanging by a couple of blocks.
Showing another area of the spawn, with a nice waterfall and cliff to make easy housing
This was taken underneath the floating island, looking out. (sun was setting)
To the left of the floating island looking down the channel (sun was setting)
From the floating island if you go to the right (first of 2 pics)
A nice view of the lake and the trees that were there as well. With Mo's Creature Mods, this makes a perfect spot for hunting bears.
Right behind the lake from the pic above, I found a site that I've never seen before (this was not modified in any way)
This was the first time that I've ever gotten an above ground lava pool, and it was equal surprising to find all of the trees in this area aflame and burned.
i will be posting a cartographer soon as well to show the other cool views that I found with this area.
