Tatsuyama - 龍山 - Empire of the Dragon Mountain - A Map for Minecraft (WIP)
V1.0 of the Map now complete and downloadable at http://www.planetminecraft.com/proje...agon-mountain/
Updated post with latest progress and planetminecraft link (11/06)
Several schematics of elements of the map are downloadable from the links shown below, and I WILL be releasing the full map to download once I am happy with it. I'll look to update this post with the latest work in progress and screenshots as I approach completion.
This is by far biggest project in minecraft so far. Tatsuyama, the Empire of the Dragon Mountain is a fully detailed Feudal Asian (Japanese/Chinese) RPG Style map which currently stretches over more than 1100x1200 blocks with many several districts and many unique features you will not have seen before.
Tatsuyama, (龍山) means "Dragon Mountain" in Japanese, and felt the most authentic after searching around for a few appropriate names in Google translate.
The texture pack used for all the shots, Woocraft, is my own 128x128 pack Asian flavored pack and is linked below.

The project has involved heavy use of World Edit, MC Edit and even some Binvox for the Buddha and Dragon (although I did create the Dragon myself in the 3d program Blender), and I'm proud of it. I wouldn't be playing this game at all if it was just Vanilla.
