    Applied more erosion to all mountains for a more natural and rugged feel.
    There's still the option to completely redo them, but we'll see how the export looks first.

    "Randomised" the map (MCAlagaesia 2.0) to add some small lakes and streams. This should make the gameplay environment seem more realistic.

    Planning to fix newer mountains.

    Begun work on re-creating the custom brushes for the caves under the Beor Mountains (MCAlagaesia 2.0). For those of you who were fans of the old ones, don't worry! The general theme is the same, all we're doing is making them even better and more magical.

    The MCAlagaesia Project
    Re-creating the world of Alagaesia in Minecraft...
    Many people have tried creating Alagaesia in Minecraft. Nobody has succeeded.
    Until now...

    MCAlagaesia 2 development is underway, featuring a map twice the size of this one!
    The MCAlagaesia Project aims to recreate Christopher Paolini's Alagaesia in Minecraft, complete with all structures. The complete map will be hosted on a server with unique plugins that add magic, thirst and the ability to ride dragons, among other things.
    The map is based on the fantasy world of Alagaesia from the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini.
    Map development updates and similar notifications will be posted here multiple times each week. If you're interested, keep watch!

    Dragon Riding Plugin

    The plugin you've all been waiting for! Minecraftthing has begun work on the Dragon Riding plugin, which, as it's name suggests, allows you to ride dragons!

    The mechanics are still being planned, however we know that you'll have to place your egg and right click it with a saddle in your inventory to begin. Dismounting your dragon will give the egg back.

    As you may know, MCAlagaesia 2.0 has been planned for quite a while. MCAlagaesia 2.0 will replace the old MCAlagaesia v4.

    Goals for the MCAlagaesia Map 2.0:

    • Twice the size of MCAlagaesia v4 (The current map)
    • Wider rivers
    • Smoother transitions from land to water
    • Smoother transitions from plains to dense forest
    What would you like to see in the next version? Development is underway and we welcome your feedback.

    --Snip--

    Yeah, I agree with that. You have to find a balance between the time you want to put into the project and the quality product you want out of it. We've been working on the project since the beginning of 2013 and are in the 5th revision of the map, with each subsequent version larger and of higher quality than the last. Another problem we've run into is the size of the map on disc. The current map version is 12gb, which is hardly a "portable" file size to easily upload to a hosting service. We're going to upload batches of region.mca files to get around this problem.

    I too have lamented over the height limitations of the game. The ten-mile high Beors would look out of proportion on any reasonable sized map, but there's not much we can do about that. There are plenty of ways to increase the limits, as you know, however when hosting a server these can cause extreme lag if not set up and managed properly, and they require all players to alter their clients in the same way. Perhaps one day Mojang might increase the height restrictions again, but until then, the sky is, quite literally, the limit.

    Anyway, I'll pay you a visit on the server later today or tomorrow.

    Just out of curiosity, how much RAM do you have? I have 16GB, but I don't think that's nearly enough to generate and export a 75,000 block x 50,000 block world...

    I had no internet when I left from college. College started 3 days ago and I should be good to go from now on.

    Phew, I thought perhaps you'd died. Or been abducted by aliens. I'm glad that you're continuing your version of Alagaesia. ;)
