We're getting really close to a Beta release of Terra Incognita, my world configs ! In this thread I'll post teasers, announcements, and can you discuss them, post suggestions, etc... I'll make another thread with the actual releases and downloads of Terra Incognita (which is Latin for unknown world).
Terra Incognita is 100% random mode, and has been rewritten completely since the Alpha version. It uses my BO3s and trees and rocks made by @NLBlackEagle. Terra Incognita is a varied generator that creates all kinds of terrain. Realistic mountains, snow plains, weird cliffs, floating islands, huge taigas, small islands... Variation. That's all about.
The default terrain generator is quite boring and unrealistic. Forests have way too small trees and are too flat, Extreme Hills aren't Extreme at all and the deserts are endless. Many biomes look every time the same. In Terra Incognita I tried to add as much variety as possible without the world being a mess. Things as multi-colored cliffs in Forests (Better Cliffs), specific uses of volatility1 and 2 creating different shapes of mountains without being buggy when multiple biomes generate next to each other (Volatility Systems) and beaches inspired by the Beta ones (B3Beach, which stands for Bring Back Beta Beaches, which has been asked since the b1.8 update of Minecraft), create variety.
I'm sorry if I this sounded as an advertorial for T.I....
I wanna see images!
Here are some images of the Taiga biomes. There are also some forest, meadow and rocklands biomes in the images.
This is an older development image of the stone beach. (Resource pack=Pixel Reality)
