So I was toying around in minecraft and I thought about how everyone seems to try to make Mata Nui in minecraft. I was in a customized underwater world and it occurred to me that I haven't seen Mahri Nui yet. I am also really interested in the CTM genre so I wanted to make my own map. So that's what this topic is about.
Note: This is not intended to be an advertisement but rather a step-by-step walkthrough of how I would make Mahri-Nui. If you don't want it to be a CTM simply don't add those aspects to the map.
Step 1: To start make a world in 1.8.X using the customized world type. Set the biome to Ocean NOT DEEP OCEAN the reason is you need lots of water but the terrain needs to be made of sand not gravel.
EDIT: make sure to raise sea level so you have the most space to work with.
Step 2: Disable all structure generation because errant structures will ruin your map.
Step 3: Coming soon!
