Colonizing America Update

Posted by on Jul 21, 2013 in Colonizing America, iMD, Let's Play, Minecraft, Summer, The iMD Server

Hey everyone, Nick here! I have some great news for you. Since we are out LP episodes to upload until David gets back, yesterday I worked on the Colonizing America map all day! It was a very tedious process, but it was well worth it. I was able to assemble the highest resolution height map of America to my knowledge. The completed heightmap was huge, it was 27376 by 16244 and was 1.68 GB! I have converted the heightmap into an actual Minecraft world, thanks to WorldPainter. The Minecraft world is over 4 GB! With this newly created world I have started adding markers of where towns are in real life. You can see a picture I created to help me after the break. With such great progress I can now say that the Colonizing America map will be added to our server before the end of August. There is still quite some work to do, but its fun work! Stay tuned for more updates!
