I have played with this mod since I found it some weeks ago.

Dude, every time, EVERY TIME, I get the feeling of a vast and unknown world that I can almost reach out to and explore. It makes me want to make a “transcontinental railroad” all over the map, it adds a sense of gravitas to the game, there is so much land to explore.

I must now find a way to get my heartlings some carts and a picnic basket with some tents, the quest for more lumber beyond the mountain shall prevail!

Actually, I get the feeling that this will be really nice for multiplayer. Will have to try it out soon once a friend gets SH.

And after some time (maybe post-alpha) and much more modding, their will be an RTS style map for multiplayer battles.

Great mod, the world is really too small without it, though I’m having a problem where a shepherd will go way too far for an animal and die. Could someone make a mod to limit the distance a shepherd is willing to go?

I think the shepherd animals spawn where the fog starts, so if you uncover a lot of the map it will start appearing far.

Ah, well I play a lot of multiplayer games with a friend, and that explains why his shepherd is always running over to me…

Bruno,
On my biome (Tropic of Unicorn) No matter what option i put in for rivers i only get 1 river. If I put in a huge number like 80 I get several “dots” of 1x1 voxel rivers in foothills and mountains, but still only 1 river on the plains. Do I need to change something in my biome_generation.json? All the other options work correctly. I would like my biome to be compatible!
Thanks!

The tacocat issue was solved in private a long time ago, his biome simple did not have space for long rivers, so the river would start and immediately end for lacking space to extend.

Now, notdownload.
The map border (that variable you tried editing) is just the area outside of the visible map portion, I use its size with that variable to avoid generating stuff like rivers outside of the playable area.
The actual world size is not as easy to change, because it is interconnected with a bunch of other stuff.

Now, the issue that a normal map is too small for you, have you filled a normal map yet? How about at least just 10% of it? :stuck_out_tongue: (I will guess not, but if you did, please show the world, it would be amazing)

Help guide for me Thank you.

Bruno is in a roundabout way asking you why you want that size specifically (since 3 player Co op fits just fine on a small map even…)

Would it be possible to add options to add more monuments and to choose to exempt large monuments or not.

There is a mod that do that. Also, on small map it already has “more” landmarks, because the game generates the same amount no matter the size of the map, meaning that in small maps they will be all condensed together in a small space.
