    Phoenix Terrain Mod - world generator.

    Version: v0.8.2
    Download at dev.bukkit.org

    Phoenix Terrain Mod is a mod based off of Bucyruss's BiomeTerrainMod. It basically allows you to customize Minecrafts terrain generation to control ore spawns, terrain types, biome size, basically everything. It was continued by R-T-B however he has since discontinued.

    Khorn has decided to continue the mod as Phoenix Terrain Bukkit plugin. Most recently Khorn has partnered with Rebelj12a and Mine-RP.net to integrate the Phoenix Terrain Community better and provide better support for users of Phoenix Terrain.

    What you can control with settings file:
    • Biome sizes.
    • Temperature and moisture limits.
    • Caves generation.
    • World water level.
    • Terrain generation.
    • Tree density.
    • Ores generation.
    • Block replacement.
    • Custom object spawn.
    • Multi world support, config per world.
    How to install:

    Video here



    Step 1: Drop PTMBukkit.jar into the plugin folder.

    Step 2: Modify bukkit.yml in the root folder and add the line

    Code:
    worlds:
        your_world_name:
            generator: PhoenixTerrainMod
    Step 3: change the "YOUR_WORLD_NAME" into the name of the world you want to work with.

    Step 4: Save the YML and boot your server.

    Step 5: Go into the newly generated Ini file and adjust accordingly (that is, in your plugins folder look for the new PhoenixTerrainMod folder with corresponding folder to your world and inside the BOB folder & ini file).

    Step 6: Your done!

    Optional Steps:
    These are to follow after Step 6. If you wish to add custom items like the BOB's which are custom style tree's, little island statues, etc, then drop the applicable ones into the Plugins/Phoenix.../"world"/BOB/ folder. World being the name of the world its generating. Once you reboot the server again, it will load those files accordingly and they will generate in your map.

    Additional/Multiverse Steps:
    After you've generated a world via Multiverse. Go into the multiverse folder and look for the worlds.yml. In there, you want to add the below code.
    Code:
    generator: PhoenixTerrainMod
    To the bottom of the worlds.yml mouthful. This is AFTER you've generated the world, just add it to the bottom line of the entire setup (with proper YML spacing like the rest of the config).

    Settings file:
    This is edited SteelCrow's guide to the PTM settings
    His main post here

    This is my attempt to explain the settings ini file for the PTM (Pheonix Terrain Mod) which is the successor to Bucyruss' terrain mod.

    This guide is accurate as far as I can tell and within my understanding of the settings. I am quite likely in error regarding some things. Feel free to correct me and let me know to update. However, be prepared to be required to provide examples and/or verifications.

    That said, lets begin.

    A quick note about seeds. The seed you use still plays an important part in what your world is like. The settings affect how the seed gets implemented, they do not override or replace the seed. You should generate several worlds with different seeds before deciding whether a set of settings is whast you were trying for or not.

    -----------------------------------------------
    <All Biome Variables>

    These set the global environmental conditions. Currently they only affect the generation of the world and biomes therein, not the designation overlay that MC uses for weather etc.

    biomeSize:1.5
    Modifies the size of biomes. Larger values generate larger biomes.
    "This settings affects the average dimension of biomes on a linear scale, so every doubling of this value will quadruple the area of biomes."
    Think of it as sort of a radius multiplier. Setting it to 5 is a huge biome, it'll be a long ways before it changes. 2 to 3 is decent. 100 should be thousands of meters across, maybe tens of thousands.
    The initial 1.5 setting is the normal vanilla biome size setting. Remember that this is a multiplier of the variable sized vanilla biomes.

    minMoisture:0.0
    maxMoisture:1.0
    Sets the minimum and maximum moisture of the world
    Moisture is a percentage. 1.0 = 100%
    Setting both to the same number or small range will limit the range of biomes generated. (see biome chart) Used to generate only certain biomes types or to exclude biome types by setting the ranges appropriatly when used in conjunction with the tempurature settings

    minTemperature:0.0
    maxTemperature:1.0
    Sets the minimum and maximum temperature of the world.
    Again a percentage expressed as 1.0 = max temp.
    Used the same way as the moisture settings.

    The tempurture vs moisture biome diagram:
    http://i.imgur.com/RgidT.jpg

    snowThreshold:0.5
    iceThreshold:0.5
    Those are the default settings. Settings range is -1 to +1. smaller (and neg) numbers mean less chance of snow and ice, higher means greater chance.
    I don't know how accurate this is given that Notch played with the snow and ice regeneration part of the algorithm. Before 1.6.6 the ice wouldn't regenerate, now it will. This may now only set the INITIAL conditions and nothing more. I haven't had the chance to test it yet.
    There is also a sort of biome overlay in MC that PTM attempts to adapt. Untested at this time.

    -----------------------------------------------
    <Swamp Biome Variables>

    muddySwamps:false
    claySwamps:false
    swampSize:2
    Places a strip of mud or clay (size is dependent on the swampSize setting number) around the edge and below surface water. This will only occur in swampland biomes. The muddySwamp setting takes priority over the claySwamps setting.

    -----------------------------------------------
    <Desert Biome Variables>

    waterlessDeserts:false
    Will remove all water from desert and ice desert biomes.
    If you set your temperature and moisture settings to generate a desert world, making waterlessDeserts:true will result in the only surface water being in notch ponds. Setting notch ponds to false will result in the only water being in underground lakes and streams.

    removeSurfaceDirtFromDesert:false
    Will remove all dirt from the surface of deserts. This setting was introduced because changing some terrain generation settings will cause dirt to erroneously appear on the surface of desert biomes.

    desertDirt:false
    Will turn on the ability to let dirt appear on the surface. This setting occurs after removeSurfaceDirtFromDesert so turning both on will cause dirt to appear in your desert biomes.

    desertDirtFrequency:0
    Sets the frequency at which dirt will appear in the desert. The setting corresponds to the average number of chunks before a dirt block will appear. Example: setting desertDirtFrequency:100 means that, on average, you will encounter one dirt block every 100 chunks in the game.

    -----------------------------------------------
    <Cave Variables>

    caveRarity:7
    This controls the odds that a given chunk will host a single cave and/or the start of a cave system.

    caveFrequency:40
    The number of times the cave generation algorithm will attempt to create single caves and cave systems in the given chunk. This value is larger because the likelihood for the cave generation algorithm to bailout is fairly high and it is used in a randomizer that trends towards lower random numbers. With an input of 40 (default) the randomizer will result in an average random result of 5 to 6. This can be turned off by setting the "even cave distribution" setting (below) to true.

    evenCaveDistribution:false
    Setting this to true will turn off the randomizer for cave frequency (above). Do note that if you turn this on you will probably want to adjust the cave frequency down to avoid long load times at world creation.

    caveMinAltitude:8
    caveMaxAltitude:128
    Sets the minimum and maximum altitudes at which caves will be generated. These values are used in a randomizer that trends towards lower numbers so that caves become more frequent the closer you get to the bottom of the map. Setting even cave distribution (above) to true will turn off this randomizer and use a flat random number generator that will create an even density of caves at all altitudes.

    individualCaveRarity:25
    The odds that the cave generation algorithm will generate a single cavern without an accompanying cave system. Note that whenever the algorithm generates an individual cave it will also attempt to generate a pocket of cave systems in the vicinity (no guarantee of connection or that the cave system will actually be created).

    caveSystemFrequency:1
    The number of times the algorithm will attempt to start a cave system in a given chunk per cycle of the cave generation algorithm (see cave frequency setting above). Note that setting this value too high with an accompanying high cave frequency value can cause extremely long world generation time.

    caveSystemPocketChance:0
    This can be set to create an additional chance that a cave system pocket (a higher than normal density of cave systems) being started in a given chunk. Normally, a cave pocket will only be attempted if an individual cave is generated, but this will allow more cave pockets to be generated in addition to the individual cave trigger.

    caveSystemPocketMinSize:0
    caveSystemPocketMaxSize:4
    The minimum and maximum size that a cave system pocket can be. This modifies/overrides the cave system frequency setting (above) when triggered.

    -----------------------------------------------

    <Terrain Variables>
    waterLevel:64
    Sets the water level of the world. Also depends on there being water to lower. See the moisture settings.

    maxAverageHeight:0.0
    If this value is greater than 0, then it will affect how much, on average, the terrain will rise before leveling off when it begins to increase in elevation. If the value is less than 0, then it will cause the terrain to either increase to a lower height before leveling out or decrease in height if the value is a large enough negative.

    This is supposed to control height of the land. Has been 'broken' in the past. A high number will give you very sharp cliffs and high plateaus. It's easy to have the land end up at the max height level by accident. Experiment in small increments. Also it's dependant on the world seed used.

    maxAverageDepth:0.0
    If this value is greater than 0, then it will affect how much, on average, the terrain (usually at the ottom of the ocean) will fall before leveling off when it begins to decrease in elevation. If the value is less than 0, then it will cause the terrain to either fall to a lesser depth before leveling out or increase in height if the value is a large enough negative.

    May be 'broken'. Seems to control the underwater slope/roundness to the bottom of the oceans. A high number will result in sudden sharp plunges to max depth. (good for underwater worlds) High numbers will effectively remove all beaches and shoals.

    Be aware this can affect 'valleys' as well. It may in some circumstances raise land if negative.

    fractureHorizontal:0.0
    Can increase (values greater than 0) or decrease (values less than 0) how much the landscape is fractured horizontally.

    Think of this as how often a horizontal line is fractured. That's not accurate as far as what is happening but it does let you grasp the nature of what this does. The higher the number the more fractures. Think of it as continents being smashed into smaller bits. Increase for archipelagos decrease for continents. (not accurate, but allows you to grasp the general function)

    Negative fractureHorizontal should stretch out terrain features and make for smoother, flatter terrain.

    fractureVertical:0.0
    Can increase (values greater than 0) or decrease (values less than 0) how much the landscape is fractured vertically. Positive values will lead to large cliffs/overhangs, floating islands, and/or a cavern world depending on other settings.

    This controls how often the vertical 'line' fractures. As the vertical height limits the number of visible fractures this setting doesn't always seem to effect much change. This is the setting that will give you plateaus and floating islands and the overhangs, undercuts and arches. A setting about 5 should get you floating islands.

    Negative fractureVertical values should smooth out terrain features such as the sides of things like hills and cliffs.

    Can sometimes create lag when it generates a massive underground vault near bedrock. Especially with large cave complexes.

    Fracture is applied near the begining of the terrain generation and affects the basic shape and nature of the land.

    volatility1:0.0
    volatility2:0.0
    Hard to explain, but think of these as terrain chaos settings. The larger the values the more chaotic/volatile landscape generation becomes. Setting the values to negative will have the opposite effect and make landscape generation calmer/gentler.
    Another way to think of them is the amount of noise added to the general terrain shape.

    volatilityWeight1:0.5
    volatilityWeight2:0.45
    Adjust the weight of the corresponding volatility settings. This allows you to change how prevalent you want either of the volatility settings to be in the terrain. Values should be between 0 and 1 and sum to some number equal to or less than 1. An example would be to set volatility1 to something high and volatility2 to some negative number. Then adjust volatilityWeight1 to a small number (say 0.1) and volatilityWeight2 to a larger number (0.85). This should result is mostly calm/flat landscape with the occasional chunk of terrain floating or jutting into the air.

    Volatility is applied near the end of the terrain generation and essentially affects the roughness of the base terrain.

    If you want flat land with rare but violent cliffs, you would have low horizontal fracture, and one volatility at 0 and the other one high, like 5+ (or more!) with a low weight, like .05 or something. Remember the weights may add up to no more than 1. I assume the unused % of the weigh allows the seed to generate nuetrally with no application of either volatility..

    disableBedrock:false
    Removes the bedrock form the bottom of the map.
    flatBedrock:false
    Turns the bedrock layer into a single, flat layer one block thick.
    bedrockObsidian:false
    Turns all bedrock into Obsidian

    -----------------------------------------------

    <Replace Variables>
    removeSurfaceStone:false
    Attempts to replace all surface stone with its nearest non-stone neighbor block type (dirt, grass, sand, gravel, or clay). If it cannot find a suitable neighbor block to duplicate, then it will default to Sand in Desert biome types and Grass in all others.

    ReplacedBlocks:None
    Will replace blocks after any generation. Use block Ids to select blocks.
    Example:

    ReplacedBlocks:13=12
    Replace any gravel to sand.
    ReplacedBlocks :13=12,17=20
    Gravel to sand and wood to glass.

    -----------------------------------------------
    <Cactus&Tree Variables>
    customObjects:true
    Use Bob objects during world generation
    objectSpawnRatio:2
    Untested. Not sure myself.
    notchBiomeTrees:true
    determines whether vanilla trees spawn or not.
    globalTreeDensity:0
    Sets the global, starting tree density for all biomes. Increasing the value increases the density of trees in all biomes.
    rainforestTreeDensity:5
    swamplandTreeDensity:0
    seasonalforestTreeDensity:2
    forestTreeDensity:5
    savannaTreeDensity:0
    shrublandTreeDensity:0
    taigaTreeDensity:5
    desertTreeDensity:-20
    plainsTreeDensity:-20
    iceDesertTreeDensity:-20
    tundraTreeDensity:-20
    Sets the tree density in each biome individually. Large negative values are used to prevent trees from spawning at all.
    (untested that the variable range is between 1-8, with -20 guaranteeing no trees spawn.)
    (untested; tree density rates are bypassed by the bob object placement of bob trees)
    globalCactusDensity:0
    desertCactusDensity:10
    cactusDepositRarity:100
    cactusDepositMinAltitude:0
    cactusDepositMaxAltitude:128
    These settings adjust the creation variables for cacti.
    -----------------------------------------------

    <Lava Pool Variables>
    lavaLevelMin:0
    lavaLevelMax:10
    The levels at which any caves are filled with lava (initialy the bottom 10 layers near bedrock)

    -----------------------------------------------
    <Underground Lake Variables>
    undergroundLakes:false
    Enables underground lakes.
    undergroundLakesInAir:false
    Allows underground lakes to spawn in the air.
    undergroundLakeFrequency:2
    undergroundLakeRarity:5
    undergroundLakeMinSize:40
    undergroundLakeMaxSize:60
    undergroundLakeMinAltitude:0
    undergroundLakeMaxAltitude:50
    These settings adjust the creation variables for underground lakes.

    -----------------------------------------------
    < Above Ground Variables>
    flowerDepositRarity:100
    flowerDepositFrequency:2
    flowerDepositMinAltitude:0
    flowerDepositMaxAltitude:128
    roseDepositRarity:50
    roseDepositFrequency:1
    roseDepositMinAltitude:0
    roseDepositMaxAltitude:128
    brownMushroomDepositRarity:25
    brownMushroomDepositFrequency:1
    brownMushroomDepositMinAltitude:0
    brownMushroomDepositMaxAltitude:128
    redMushroomDepositRarity:13
    redMushroomDepositFrequency:1
    redMushroomDepositMinAltitude:0
    redMushroomDepositMaxAltitude:128
    reedDepositRarity:100
    reedDepositFrequency:10
    reedDepositMinAltitude:0
    reedDepositMaxAltitude:128
    pumpkinDepositRarity:3
    pumpkinDepositFrequency:1
    pumpkinDepositMinAltitude:0
    pumpkinDepositMaxAltitude:128
    Pretty self-explanitory.
    Frequency is the number of times, per chunk, that the game will try to make a placement.
    Rarity is the odds (out of 100) that the game will actually make each placement.
    The above settings mean that yellow flowers will occur twice per chunk. (2x100%)
    Roses will show up on average once per two chunks (1x50%)
    Brown mushrooms once per four chunks (1x25%)
    Red mushrooms about once every seven chunks (1x13%)
    Reeds, ten per chunk (10x100%)
    Pumpkins, once per thirty-three chunks. (1x3%)
    Remember that the spawn requirements must also be met. So if there's no dirt next to water the reeds will not spawn all 10, only what can.
    Pumpkin settings are for a pumpkin patch (So I believe, haven't tested).
    -----------------------------------------------
    <Above/Below Ground Variables>
    evenWaterSourceDistribution:false
    evenLavaSourceDistribution:false
    Changes the water source spawning algorithm to a flat distribution. Normally, water sources are distributed with a higher frequency toward the bottom of the map.
    waterSourceDepositRarity:100
    waterSourceDepositFrequency:50
    waterSourceDepositMinAltitude:8
    waterSourceDepositMaxAltitude:128
    lavaSourceDepositRarity:100
    lavaSourceDepositFrequency:20
    lavaSourceDepositMinAltitude:8
    lavaSourceDepositMaxAltitude:128
    Water and lava sources are the single source blocks that create waterfalls and lavafalls, both above and below ground.
    The numbers seem high to me, but I think there are spawn conditions that result in the majority of the placement attempts being aborted. I've never seen a single water source placed in a cave ceiling or be buried in a wall. I assume then that they need to have the placement location open on one side with a minimum volume of air to spawn. So while the above settings seem like waterfalls will happen fifty times per chunk (50x100%) they actually occur far less frequently.

    disableNotchPonds:false
    Setting it to true will remove those surface ponds of lava and water.
    -----------------------------------------------
    <Below Ground Variables>
    These 'ore' deposit settings are all alike and will be explained together. The initial settings are the vanilla MC settings.
    dirtDeposit1
    gravelDeposit1
    clayDepositRarity1
    coalDepositRarity1
    ironDepositRarity1
    goldDepositRarity1
    redstoneDepositRarity1
    diamondDepositRarity1
    lapislazuliDepositRarity1:100
    lapislazuliDepositFrequency1:1
    lapislazuliDepositSize1:7
    lapislazuliDepositMinAltitude1:0
    lapislazuliDepositMaxAltitude1:16
    "Frequency is the number of times, per chunk, that the game will try to make a deposit.
    Rarity is the odds (out of 100) that the game will actually make a deposit."
    Using the Lapis as an example; What it means is that the world generator is always going to try to place one deposit of lapis per chunk (DepositFrequency). Each try has 100% chance of happening (DepositRarity). And that placement will be from 1 to 7 blocks of Lapis (DepositSize).
    So in a single chunk these settings can spawn anywhere from 1 to 7 blocks of Lapis.
    If the Deposit Frequency was changed to 5, it could spawn anywhere from 5 to 35 blocks of Lapis. This is PER CHUNK. 35 Lapis in a single chunk is one lapis in every 5x5x5 block in the 16 layers available with these settings. And it will occur like that in each and every chunk in the world. There would be far more lapis around than you would ever be likely to use.
    I personally don't like simply increasing these settings as it makes the survival game far too easy. However coupled with the additional three sets of settings for each ore can make for interesting distribution patterns.
    lapislazuliDepositRarity1:100
    ...
    lapislazuliDepositRarity2:0
    ...
    lapislazuliDepositRarity3:0
    ...
    lapislazuliDepositRarity4:0
    ...
    There are four deposit setting per ore. What this allows [with a little creativity] is multiple variations in the sizes and locations of ores.
    ----
    For example;
    Code:
    ironDepositRarity1:100
    
    ironDepositFrequency1:20
    
    ironDepositSize1:8
    
    ironDepositMinAltitude1:0
    
    ironDepositMaxAltitude1:64
    
    ironDepositRarity2:1
    
    ironDepositFrequency2:1
    
    ironDepositSize2:30
    
    ironDepositMinAltitude2:10
    
    ironDepositMaxAltitude2:30
    These two settings will produce iron as normal, plus because of the use of the rarity2 (etc) settings, it will once per 100 chunks (on average) produce an additional iron deposit of between 1 to 30 blocks. A 'vein' of iron ore per se., deep down.
    ----
    Another example;
    Code:
    goldDepositRarity1:100
    
    goldDepositFrequency1:2
    
    goldDepositSize1:8
    
    goldDepositMinAltitude1:0
    
    goldDepositMaxAltitude1:32
    
    goldDepositRarity2:5
    
    goldDepositFrequency2:1
    
    goldDepositSize2:16
    
    goldDepositMinAltitude2:50
    
    goldDepositMaxAltitude2:60
    
    goldDepositRarity3:75
    
    goldDepositFrequency3:1
    
    goldDepositSize3:8
    
    goldDepositMinAltitude3:100
    
    goldDepositMaxAltitude3:110
    
    goldDepositRarity4:50
    
    goldDepositFrequency4:10
    
    goldDepositSize4:2
    
    goldDepositMinAltitude4:75
    
    goldDepositMaxAltitude4:76
    These will produce some unusual effects.
    Set one will produce the usual vanilla distribution of gold. There will always be two deposits of 1-8 gold per chunk.
    Set two will deposit a single grouping of 1-16 gold just below sea level, but only once in every 20 chunks. It's likely that some of it will be replaced with ocean so you'll often find these lying in the deeper areas of water, when you don't find them in caves or solid rock. Keep in mind that if you drop your sea level they can be exposed on the surface.
    Set three will usually, but not always manage to deposit a regular sized deposit of gold high up on mountains. There has to be a mountain high enough there for this to happen. But if there is this set will probably place one there.
    Set four will produce an 'gold ore rich' layer across the entire world (as each setting affects every chunk in the world) it'll place 1-2 gold in the two layers allowed about 5 times per chunk. a single 16x16 layer is 256 blocks in total. So it'll be 1-20 gold in that layer. But it'll be wherever there is stone crossing those layers.
    Because all four different settings were used all four will occur together. Keep that in mind as these four together will produce anywhere from 10-60 gold per chunk. In vanilla there is usually only 2-16. So using all four together can lead to excessive amounts of ores.
    A word of caution. When determining deposit sizes remember to leave room for everything else. Stone, dirt, sand, water, the other deposits, etc. It's easy to go overboard with random settings and overload the chunks. You can essentially overwork and freeze the program with too many deposits and a lot of large deposits as it'll try to fit it all into the single chunk.
    Making ten deposits of 200 blocks of ore per chunk can fill about 15 layers of each and every chunk with that ore.
    Also a lot of deposits attempts will most certainly slow down chunk generation. Expect a great deal of lag and crashes may occur if you set these excessively.

    ...When is 1.8 coming out? I mean...I might as well re-render the map with the continents and all instead of having to go through the hassle of making them.

    Ok so heres my best explanation of the heigh control as i can figure.

    Basically, each number represents a section of the map that generates. The heigh of that generated area depends ont he numbers

    -100.0 = nothing
    100.0 = full generation for that area i.e cliff.

    Everything inbetween it uses the parts from the velocity and fracture to create the level area.

    the first 0.0 is basically the bottom as far as i can tell it controls blocks 0-10

    The second decimal controls 10-20

    I have to assume it does the same on upwards
    although the last number
    only controls the top 3 blocks so. use this to create spaces at the top of the mop and leave it negative to lower the map height.

    Hope that helps all.

    They are just vertically lines from ground to top (means there is always a top (=floating island,"cave")).

    Using v0.7.1 (=latest).

    Tutorial for setting up ptm on your server coming soon. Gotta upload it.

    More tutorials coming soon that should help assist you in creating the maps of your wildest desires.

    New tutorial video Phoenix Terrain - Setting up your server with PTM Bukkit Plugin. See the main post for video.

    Disabled the bo2-objects and these lines are gone.
    Guess i need some further testing to understand this fully (if its in general or if any bo2-object is "broken" (would be strange, as i was using the "default" one))

    Well, i tested 3 things now:
    1. Running without any bo2-objects -> No "bugs".
    2. Running with murphy's bo2-objects, but without wessex's bo2-objects -> "bugs".
    3. Running without murphy's bo2-objects, but with wessex's bo2-objects -> "bugs".

    Did I made anything wrong with my settings?
    It seems, no bo2-objects are working correctly.
    Maybe the server tries to build a bo2-object, but cancel it due to environmental-conditions (e.g. light) and then the server fills this "space" with lines?

    Ok yeah i know what you are talking about now, ive gotten that before also.

    I do believe there is a setting for the bob that indicates fill beneath or something of that matter if you uncheck that it may not do it, unsure though, since nobody has ported it to java or mac i cannot test bobs as much as i wish.

    Sepulzera

    This!
    Switched "under_fill" in the bob-files to false, now it seems to work.
    You should do it for your bob-files included with the plugin (download), too, it seems to be nothing good ^^

    Try:
    Code:
    denyObjectsUnderFill:true
    If it is not help - copy here your bo2 object which cause bug.

    Whats the difference between "under_fill:false" and "denyObjectsUnderFill:true"?
    If there isn't any, i go on using under_fill:false now :)
     
  25. Offline

    Khorn

    denyObjectsUnderFill:true - turn off underFill for all objects in this world.
    So you can use this or edit every object for setting underFill:false

    Greetings. For the last 3 months the denizens of the Celaeno server have dwelled on our PTM islands map.
    As a way to share my appreciation of the mod, I humbly offer the following:
    Code:
    <Terrain Mod - Terrain Variables>
    waterLevel:60
    maxAverageHeight:-2.0
    maxAverageDepth:1.6
    fractureHorizontal:-10.0
    fractureVertical:-10.0
    volatility1:0.0
    volatility2:1.0
    volatilityWeight1:0.1
    volatilityWeight2:0.8
    
    You might want to play with the ice threshold to avoid too much glaciation.
    It took 50 iterations of the settings file to get these results. They are spectacular. :D
    Take a look at the Dynmap at http://yggdrasyl.dyndns.org:8123 [WHITELISTED SERVER, FOLKS, STOP TRYING]
    The seed I used was 590499530. Enjoy!

    Too bad we could make underfill to force the generation of a hill, secifically for that bob region use different terrain height settings on an individual basis that fills up to that bob. Might be a bit complicated.

    Because whenever i reload the plugin or start the server up, it deletes my replacements.

    Well for one the built in reload on any bukkit plugin is sketchy. If your talking about the built in PTM reload then try this.

    Set up a test map. testworld or something.

    Put the settings in the bukkit.yml

    Add the world in after you've started up the server with multiverse.

    That will create a default yml.

    Stop the server. Save the yml to your desktop.

    Start up the server. Load in the level. Change the ini on your desktop, save, then drag it to your folder there.

    /ptm reload

    Travel a bit, see changes. Rinse repeat.

    Then once youve got the map the way you want drag the ini to your main world folder.

    Should fix it. I have managed to get replacement to work on my comp.

    Ive noticed, that sometimes when using an FTP it wont save the changes if you edit it directly from the ftp. On a mac and probably on windows it saves it to a temp folder which auto updates it with the server. If you "confuse " the program by having too many open it wont send it automatically properly.

    Take two of these and see me in the morning.

    btw those arent available yet, they are custom bobs i created. Need to get the repository up, looking to hit that this weekend.
