Introduced infCraft 0.200

Generates a new map file. Can create many different kinds of terrain. The "theme" defines the appearance (type of blocks used): Arctic, Desert, Forest, Grass, Hell, Swamp. The "template" defines the shape of terrain: Archipelago, Atoll, Bay, Dunes (best with Desert theme), Flat, Hills, Ice (best with Arctic theme), Island, Lake, Mountains, Peninsula, Random (unpredictable), River, and Streams. Special "empty" and "ocean" templates do not need a theme specified.

Since fCraft 0.610, the order of theme/template parameters can be swapped without problems.

Map Dimensions

  • Minecraft client works best if each map dimensions is either 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, or 1024. Various problems can occur if map does not conform to this rule:
    • If any dimension is not a multiple of 16 (e.g. 16, 32, 48, 64, etc), there will be invisible blocks and a LOT of visual glitches.
    • If width or length (horizontal dimensions) are multiples of 16 but not powers of 2 (e.g. not 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, etc), there will be inaccessible walled-off areas on a map, and it will lag pretty badly. However, you can still make map height any multiple of 16 without negative side effects.
    • If any dimension is over 1024 blocks, players will become invisible when they pass the 1024 block mark.
  • Everywhere in fCraft commands, coordinates are given in "X Y Z" format (X/Y horizontal, and Z vertical). Similarly, map dimensions are given in "Width Length Height" format (Width/Length horizontal, and Height vertical).
  • The total size of the map is theoretically limited to 2147483647 blocks (231-1).
