This can be run with or without a normal terrain mapgen, allowing pure skylands or an exotic addition to the landscape.
Configurable settings include the altitude islands appear, the ability to restrict the area they spawn, and whether rare and giant trees can sometimes be found growing from islands.
- Vines, or something that contains vines, such as plantlife_modpack or MineClone2. These will grow off the sides of the islands, climate permitting, allowing you to climb, and looking picturesque at the same time!
Nether enables players to build portals to Hallelujah Mountains, allowing secret entrances into floating kingdoms, or the island altitude to be configured way up high while still having a means to get there. Stones to build these portals can only be found in the Nether.
Extra ways to explore:
- Bridger if you want to build nice wooden bridges between islands
- Airboat to sail the high clouds on a small airship
- Flying carpet
Cool floating islands to explore
Love the floating islands! It's a shame they don't have any trees on as in the depicted picture (I'm also running ethereal, if that matters), but they are cool all the same.
Crashes often with Minetest 5.7.0
Considering your world will depend on it, so you can't just remove it, it should absolutely not crash.
Seems to be fixed now. Note that it doesn't seem suited to survival with the singlenode map generator because there don't seem to be any metal ores inside the islands even when ores is enabled in the settings. Sometimes the island densitiy can be low too and at other times it's perfectly fine. So maybe generate a few worlds before you decide which to build in.
Seems like Dragon Islands but just could you give a command or a mega sapling to grow those cool giant trees
