This is a very well done mapgen that I hope will serve as inspiration for mapgen v7. Brilliance such as this must not be ignored.

You might want to spread caves out more, as they do seem a little crowded down there.

When the player reaches -1000, lava caves could appear here and there and could be lined with obsidian.

When dirt is placed near dry grass, the dirt could turn into dry grass itself (same thing applies if the dirt is placed near desert sand.)

Will underground labyrinths (dungeons) be added to this mapgen, with the bigger ones being below -3000?

Have you seen the mod below?
viewtopic.php?pid=102707#p102707
It has a few interesting ideas.

Amazing work.

Looks like 22nd September really was lua mapgen day, as well as Equinox.
I'm pushing my biome system into paragen mod and will be developing that as my complex experimental mapgen.

Since I saw some people had problems with the gotos in the code, I removed them... So anyone who does not have LuaJIT can now use the mod without problems.

Nore, paragen mod biome system update, in case you're interested: Tundra biome now has permafrost nodes (permanently frozen dirt) and no dry grass, just a few dry shrubs or a thin layer of snow. Beaches now have dry shrubs higher up the beach to create dunes.

Village buildings in snowy areas should have snow on their roofs. The first image here shows the offending situation.

What else do you intend to add to this mapgen? Underground ruins would be a nice touch.

Will you consider aiding VanessaE with getting better minetestmapper support for this mod? Will you help her with giving this mod full support by her HDX Texture Packs?

Looks pretty good. Hope those new npc from the npc framework will soon be able to inhabitate our worlds.

Maybe if you put a special type of block in villages people could use it to spawn other NPCs. Was my idea for peaceful_npc

overpopulation? I think that there would only be a certain amount of NPC's with a limited lifetime... But I might be wrong...

I got some pretty epic stuff with this. Am generating (almost) all my singleplayer worlds with this.

Thanks man! now,I can have more biomes to place my orc village! (also I can invade the other villages) and now,it has better and less caves,better than the stupid default caves.Also,the caves look natural and I think i saw a cool little bug which made a desert strata!by the way,I love the Savanna! it has the exact needs of an orc village! keep up the good work!

Hello,

I tried to use Minetest 0.4.8 and this mod work without big problems.
The only problem, my start was not so good.
I copy the singleplayer save from my game and it works.
And after a short time I found a very nice city.
Minecraft cities are so bad. I hate them. Not playable without many work on it.
This cities from the Mod are great and playable without problems.
You make a very good job, super. +1
