I’m a big fan of WorldPainter maps – I love me some Eldaria island. However, it seems good custom terrain maps for survival and small servers are too few and far between. Luckily, mapper Corpeh has us covered with his Lands of Iuvem map, featuring a 4k x 4k map with some truly stunning terrain.
The map features 5 peninsulas connected to a center island. Each peninsula represents a biome in vanilla Minecraft, just with prettier terrain. Do not be fooled by the tilt-shifted renders – each peninsula is huge and could house many builds. There’s even some huge custom underground stuff, mainly epic caves. But first, let’s check out all the biomes.
The middle island is a forest, what you would imagine “regular” terrain looks like. Lots of trees, lots of grass and some hills.
The biggest of the peninsulas is the extreme hill one, with lots of mountains and ravines. It’s green and has two big lakes on it. It is reminiscent of Austria in spring.
Then there’s the frozen tundra, covered in snow, frozen lakes, pines and mountains.
Next is the desert/mesa mix. This scorching desert isn’t all red and yellow, but has lots of green pockets and oasis’ for travelers.
The barren wasteland to the south is a volcanic peninsula, with bare rock and pockets of lava everywhere.
Finally there’s the tropical jungle peninsula, the smallest one, with a small tropical island next to it.
Every area has its own unique feel and there’s plenty of open space for builds, but everything still seems not too far away. There’s lots of ores and mobs spawn normally. Alone it might still be fun, but it’s perfect for a small private server. You can get the map here:
Download the Lands of Iuvem map here!
- Download the map. You’ll get a .zip file.
- Extract that .zip file and copy the folder (make sure it’s the actual map folder with world data inside, and not a folder containing the map folder).
- Paste the folder inside .minecraft/saves.
- Run the game and enjoy.
