Transforming EVERYTHING In Minecraft - The ULTIMATE Survival World!
I spent 5,000 hours
transforming all the over
Minecraft biomes to create the
world. This great project is finally coming to an end and I'm excited to announce that the map download is coming this October. We've covered some crazy built-in transformations. a variety of styles and i've been on some crazy adventures in the last episode we transformed the tiger into an epic viking inspired mountainous landscape and yeah guys you can really blow this horn in the game we've actually been hard at work in a bunch of added bonuses including a custom achievement system, a giant island-spanning scavenger hunt, and fun side quests to challenge you too with just the snowy mountains plus a few minor minor buffs and endings remaining, we're Hitting the slopes to officially complete the island super
world and we're going out with a bang now, hit the subscribe button to stay up to date with this project and future projects across the USW that we've been inspired by on almost every continent in the
world, but we haven't built anything Asian inspired yet, so I listened to your feedback and definitely included.
Let's get some Asian inspirations in this biome. we will create a new area known as mammoth pass a vast valley containing giant mammoth remains and a makeover of the icy peaks for
minecraft buyer then we have to transform our snowy mountain town into a shiny new igloo town full of dog sleds fishing holes and more as an added bonus for this final over
world biome we are also going to build some secret law related areas including a magical ice forge and the elusive yeti cave after that we are going to include an upgrade massive for this place of worship biomes, a monastery-inspired complex only accessible by a treacherous mountain path that winds under waterfalls and over the hands of a gigantic statue and eventually we'll end up with an area loca inside inspired by east asia tucked away in the mountains, including a lush bonsai village and a panda refuge, a temple of e samurai dragons along with another dragon arena, the sister of tigers, dragon arena with of course some overlapping traditions before starting this crazy build that I would like. thanks to today's sponsor raid shadow legends epic champions tough bosses and the best part raid lets you take it all with you in your pocket i worked with raid when they first released and oh boy a lot has changed since then besides my haircuts drastically improved the trixie Blocks Channel has grown eight times since then and it is thanks to the support of amazing sponsors like Raid that I am able to spend all my time creating content like myself.

world to renew the environment i painted our
world painter mountain landscape and converted It all came down to stones that I could have a clean slate to work with.
Then I had a lot of fun using the Gobrush plugin to modify and exaggerate our mountain peaks. You might as well see me laying the groundwork for some of the builds we'll be working on later in the video below, I finished the setup with a bit of smoothing, this biome is honestly gigantic and with all these big edits it took days just to get these few seconds of footage you are viewing correctly now it was time for the fun part, placing the new snow from the edge of the tiger to the edge of the dark forest.
Some of you have asked how
survival friendly these mountains will be. Easy to traverse, so no need to worry about hand cramps from constantly pressing the space bar after laying down the snow. I've fixed all the edges of the biome, obviously this isn't meant to be totally perfect because that's not how I've designed the map. but i made sure the transition wasn't too jarring either and to finish off our new mountains i painted the rock underneath to add a bit of a gradient to make things feel even more realistic. I chose this five block gradient that goes f from cobblestones to gray concrete and I think it adds a lot of dimension to the mountain peaks honestly guys I'm really happy with how these mountains turned out I think they look so much better than the old ones mountains I did in the
world painter when I first made them. the island and are much better suited for
I love the results so much that I even revisited the forest mansion mountains from earlier in the project and gave them a facelift. I admit I rushed them a bit earlier and definitely. i saw room for improvement this is what they look like now going back to the snowy mountains i fixed up the coast by adding some glaciers and drift snow to make a clean transition to the ocean biomes surrounding the island and move into a very special area of this Known map As a mammoth pass, I wanted to add something a little different than just trees and rocks to decorate this biome, so as a little extra biome transformation, I decided to take
minecraft vanilla bi icy spikes. come and create my own version through this epic valley as well as the peaks i also added several custom ice lakes through the mountains so be sure to pack your skates when you head into this biome and be sure to keep an eye out for hidden achievements and to wrap up our work on the environment, I spent a lot of time doing some final tweaks to our main build areas, this includes adding more ice lakes, rivers and waterfalls to bring our giant mountainous landscape to life and
ultimately instance, making the builds feel as immersive as possible when they go exploring, our good friend Goddard even helped us add crazy detail to the environment features, each waterfall on the map has its own sound effects and particle effects, so finding them in
survival is super atmospheric as there are always hours and hours behind the scenes tidying up to make a ton s invisible job is to make sure the biomes blend well and take the time to fix and decorate less obvious areas that are likely to be ignored in a creative build, but could interfere with your experience and immersion when playing
ultimately the environment. ready.
You can really see how much space we have to work with now so let's build some structures now it's time to go go over to mammoth pass and plan what we are going to add to this huge mountain valley the igloo village is the main feature of mammoth pass mammoth, so we'll start by building some igloos and cabins for our villagers to live in, I'm going to make some mammoth remains to spread around the giant valley and create lots of decorations to spice up the camp, including dog sledding and bonfires. I'll also create some watchtowers and a front wall to protect the chamber, so let's go inside.
As you can see, I have our vanilla snowy mountain town here and I'm laying it out in a line so I can tackle each building and decor individually to create a pretty true to vanilla update for this town. the later building is going to be more expansive and I wanted to strike the balance between accurate and epic for this final over
world biome, so we have the best of both as the centerpiece of the town. I built a big cozy log cabin for our villagers. for gathering i really wanted to use
minecraft snow for this design to create an interesting sloped roof, then i ended up with a basic banner pattern, the emblem of the egulu clan who lives in this village along with the legendary usw protector anyway for the next cabin, i again try to recreate the shape of the vanilla house that you can briefly see behind.
I really love this style and the snowy roofs make
everything feel so cozy. Then I got to work renovating the
Minecraft igloos taking inspiration from traditional Inuit housing which includes both igloos and houses made from whale bones and animal skins I even included a few extra features for each house this one has a rack for hanging skins there a limit. I needed a supply of wood in our snowy mountains, so I wanted to create a good variety of alternative housing for our gulu clan villages. For this igloo, I incorporated some wooden supports and tusks. village i thought it would be interesting to incorporate a chimney into an igloo design after all this villager won't want his oven smoking up the face for this igloo i also included a fish drying rack it looks like this villager is the local chef to finalize the designs For igloos, I built a couple that were partly sunk into the ground and keeping with the theme I kept the interiors relatively basic by raising the sleeping areas as the warmer air rises and if you're going to live in a house made of snow you'll need that extra heat at night anyway.
I then moved on to creating a bone shop and hide now. I'm not sure if this one is made from whale bones or mammoth tusks so what do you think speaking of mammoth tusks my next task was to create those giant mammoth remains I mentioned earlier this valley is known as the past of mammoth after all the fun thing about creating this skeleton was that a mammoth skull actually looks very strange obviously a mammoth or elephant trunk is not part of the skeleton so instead you are left with a large opening in the front of the skull with that little quirk in mind.
I did my best to mimic skeletal anatomy on a pretty small scale and I think it turned out amazing, it could even make a cool base for your own snowy mountain
survival base enveloping the igloo village I created some watchtowers to protect the I put in some campfires to keep our villagers nice and cozy and some dog sleds for your fishing and hunting trips steph and then I started laying
everything down Starting with the watchtowers, a spiky front fence and mammoth remains, then we dotted the buildings all around with our largest campfire sitting in the center in the real
world storytelling is a big part of inuit culture so as a fun little reference the egulu clan of usw also have their own myths and legends that are count around the communal fire.
One of its most famous legends is the story of the yeti which is said to dwell in the mountains gobbling up explorers and residing in a large cave but the monster has never been found I wonder if you will be able to find this frozen cavern and steal everyone's dinner modes monsters and legends aside returning to our igloo village we carefully placed the rest houses and decorations to finish and also added a second law related area hidden in the mountains this magical ice forge was the birthplace of the most powerful weapon of the island the sword of acne disguising the weapon as a basic iron sword the sorceress of the clan acne forged the most powerful sword in the land entrusting it to her son, who would become the protector of the usw, many stories have been told about the protector and his adventures through the vast biomes of the island. and you may remember that your sword lies in the dark forest encased in stone waiting for a worthy adventurer to take up your mantle and i hope you are up for the challenge and without delving too deep into the law that shrouds the past of our epic mammoth valley and the welcoming village of the egulu clan below, we head to the mountain peaks to plan the tigers nest, a complex heavily inspired by the Buddhist monasteries of Bhutan and Tibet, we will add a gigantic statue cradling a bridge to the entrance accessible via a dangerous mountain path adorned with large waterfalls, then for the structure itself, we're reimagining the
Minecraft church as a large monastery-inspired complex with intricate structures, a special hidden courtyard and more, as well that we go to the last place of worship on the island that we wanted. to make something really special as you know we have been inspired by many different religions to create fictional places of worship to transform
minecraftvanilla church through the island biomes to the snowy mountains, we had some ideas in mind about what kind of build we wanted to do and we researched different temples, monasteries and more to select some inspiration, it was really hard to choose and you all had so many lovely ideas, but in the end we had to go with what we felt fit the best with this biome, so we got our inspiration from a Buddhist monastery located in Bhutan, specifically parataxan, also known as the tiger's nest and as a nod to this inspiration we've dubbed our build the same,
ultimately we just can't include inspirations from all religions and cultures in this
survival map, but we'll definitely include a few more in the next one, so comment below what you'd like to see from anyway while i've been rambling you can see this gigantic statue taking shape steph and really what I wanted to combine our Buddhist inspirations with some elements of epic fantasy and thought it would be fun to make a statue that interacts with I made the
world in a unique way so we thought why not have a huge statue carved out of the mountains cradling the only entrance to the nest of tigers involving organics in big builds like this is super fun and even in a hard time limit I love how this turned out with the shading and draping and I think it's time to connect it all with that dangerous path I mentioned so the path begins at the foot of the mountain with an arched stone bridge straddling the frozen lakes below whats your step i certainly wouldnt want to fall on those giant ice peaks below the path continues along the side of what is known as the mountain that cries under a huge waterfall that leads to a rickety wooden bridge that passes over another waterfall and reaches the hands of our bearer of the sacred bridge that grants adventurers safe passage into the tiger's nest as long as they tread carefully and don't look down, which of course leads us to one of our biggest tasks for this biome you guessed it needs some planning with steph from colored wool and i spent years planning all of this, we wanted it to be a really exciting place to explore with lots of different levels and connections Choosing bridges, rooms and paths to get lost in during this process we did some research and decided on a few of the purposes of each building.
We plan to make menistic cell blocks, that is, where our
minecraft monks will sleep. Several temples, libraries, storage rooms, as well as a cap. to wash and a factory to eat, obviously all our work is greatly reduced for these videos, but as always, there is a lot of cleaning to do to make way for the interiors and prepare the plan to transform it into the final build, you would be surprised. in all the extra time we spend tweaking things like this, these things are often overlooked for creative builds, but making a fully working map is a lot of extra work with the cleanup done after many more hours of pain.
I changed the colors throughout the build so I could paint a nice gradient for the walls, then painted each section with a white gradient and worked on a ceiling design incorporating some of the
minecraft mangr 1.19 editions. Despite the wood and bricks from mud, this color palette is super unique and unlike anything we've done in the USW so far. loads of intricate details to this build my main inspiration power attack is packed with ornate decorative details its walls clad in vibrant reds and golds and each section looks unique to the last so i did my best to emulate these amazing features in my construction obviously with a more exaggerated fantasy twist creating rickety walkways ornate windows mini temples on the mountainsides and much more to make it as much fun as possible to explore with the main details complete i fixed up all the courtyards and decorated them with wagons and a few other small features including a large sink sink outside their factory for the hidden courtyard at the rear, we wanted to create a special holy place similar to the monuments and mantras carved on the s slopes of the
world's Buddhist monasteries royal keeping the theme of tiger nest.
I prepared a large tiger carving in the courtyard that is said to represent a manifestation of the god of the monk who guided the founder of it to safety during the dragon war, but of course that's a story. for stephblox channel anyway its common for buddhist monasteries to house many buddha representations and in our fantasy religion we thought it would be nice to do something similar so i adapted our ancient jungle city elemental totem statue into something a little more fitting and I added some of them around the hidden tiger engraving as a further reference to our inspirations.
I hung some prayer flags near the patio. The colors of prayer flags generally represent different elements. In order for these colors to represent, we'll try to include the best ideas in the official backstory and not make too much of it. oh me and steph have included some great interiors for you to explore as planned earlier in the video there is a huge grand temple in the middle of the complex with hanging curtains and sweeping ceilings along with connected libraries of multi-spanning sacred texts floors you can even explore the labyrinth of monks rooms and much much more I say every time but this place is going to be amazing fun to explore it has really been a pleasure to draw inspiration from different cultures for places of worship throughout of this project and I can only hope I have done them at least a little justice even with my fantasy creations so here is more of this in future projects last but not least we are heading right over the mountain towards a magical and exuberant valley here we will be. creating a giant bonsai sanctuary hidden in the mountains kung fu panda inspired with those waterfalls we made earlier and a variety of east asian inspired houses and decorations we will also build a large samurai dragon temple as well as a panda shelter , since we didn't get a chance to add bamboo to the jungle and finally we will add another dragon arena similar to the tiger one full of backstory.
I'm really doing my best for this final area of the over
world, so let's jump into it as usual. I started with a bit of planning using colored yarn to get an idea of the overall layout of this epic mountain town. I then set up a variety of giant bonsai trees which may just be my favorite trees we have ever created in the usw we wanted this area to be really unique and special as it is our last build on the island and these trees are definitely unlike anything else we we've done in the other biomes afterwards Creating a range of shapes and sizes, I shaded the trees with different variants of wood, including birch and mangrove, ready to be placed last with our tree reserved for later.
I started designing a fantasy temple known in popular tradition as the dragon. samurai temple the villagers living in bonsai falls are known for their relationship with dragons just like the tiger fafnir clan but their approach to dragon training was much more peaceful and this disparity led to the biggest conflict in the usw, the war of the dragons this temple was the birthplace of the dragon samurai a group of fierce dragon fighters and trainers the only ones who understood the importance of balance and honor in all things this law is obviously inspired by the japanese samurai of our history who may not have tamed dragons but it definitely influenced some of the features of our fantasy run.
Anyway, I thought it would be awesome to have a dragon head involved in the design of this building, plus it ties in really well with law. I used a dragon head I built for an old Game of Thrones build by adding some flowing tendrils and changing things up to a more suitable color palette and I can't wait for you to see this guy added to the temple. I put aside our dragon. ad and continued on to the building you can clearly see the east asian influences in every section of this building and this is easily one of my favorite styles to build in this style is so distinct and one of my favorite elements is definitely the shapes of lighting incorporating both in china and japan, for example, lanterns are an iconic part of various traditions, from japan's beautiful toronagashi festival to commemorate the dead to the yuan xiao festival marking the end of chinese new year, so for this build i really wanted to incorporate some large lanterns into the structure itself which also contained small memorial shrines as a nod to nagashi torah traditions these lanterns were inspired by some jason zhu artwork to finish off our temple dragon samurai i built a grand pillared entrance with a long stone staircase i kind of imagine poe of the pand clan to the country going up all those stairs to the jade palace but i didn't go too crazy with the grand entrance Once i was done i finally found the perfect spot to place the dragon head i made earlier and finish off some finishing touches with the temple full dragon samurai I placed it before moving inside in our last biome. a bit different for our
minecraft village bell update making a giant war horn for our viking inspired village this time i am creating a large gong inside this temple a medium through which the samurai dragon is summoned and You guessed it, you'll be able to interact with this on the map, but I'll leave that for you to play with the rest of the interior.
I kept the ceilings high and added beams as well as some secrets so keep an eye out for hidden areas and test your ninja. the reflections through the high beams the samurai dragon temple is a real sight and a great start to our bonsai village moving on to the buildings in our village i kept the same color palette in style as the temple and designed our fi First Talonclan house to add some variation. I did a stone foundation variant and a wood variant, which makes these designs much more versatile. It can be used at ground level or elevated as a cliffside home for the second home.
I reused the first design and enlarged it. with a second level below it was a lot of fun playing with elements like the hipped and gabled roof which is essentially what you can see at the top of this house and I got to experiment with mangrove wood in floor designs houses for the first time again. i built a version on stilts of the same design and i love how dynamic they look they are going to be great to explore and of course they all have interiors too and of course this wouldn't be complete without a little pagoda style house so I quickly built a small building with stacked eaves before moving on to the next house design.
I gave this one a round door for more variation and it reminds me of Pandaria from
World of Warcraft. You may also have I realized I came up with a banner design for the clan creating lanterns to decorate each house and tie
everything together nicely now since bonsai cascades are full of waterfalls and rivers it only makes sense to add some bridges, another structure that has a really different look. east asia for this bridge i added a roof and went for a fancy style stacked at each end with a lot of variation in height and shape for the interiors of this bridge complex it made sense to include some racks to hang small fishing boats as well as for storage and plenty of other nooks and crannies to get lost in during your
There are so many secrets hidden in these buildings and all over the
world guys I can't wait for you to find them to make sure
everything is alright. bustling and lively i prepared some decorations a couple of wagons a well a stone lantern and a toriigate inspired structure to place near our dragon samurai temple to mark the sacred grounds and now the fun part placing
everything we create to fill this lush valley with life steph and i started with the big bridge adding boats to the rivers before moving on to the main houses then we created another smaller bridge using those pagoda style buildings on the side with a classic red arched bridge sandwiched between them we continue scattering the buildings across the valley honestly it took a long time to get things right and fixing all the scaffolding to make things easy to survive was pretty tricky but once that was all taken care of the best part was putting those bonsai up giant ones we did earlier these twisted trees look so cool in this setting and make a wide variety of f shapes for these definitely makes the whole area look really natural with
everything laid out,I laid out some paths to Connect
Everything and add stairs and bridges to make all areas accessible while Steph started lighting up the town with those stone lans. terns we made, then we added the torii gate in front of the samurai dragon temple, we added a big koi pond full of fish and a bamboo area for some very special residents, we finished the decoration with some rocks, flowers and grass covering the entire valley before returning.
Back at the temple to make way for our panda haven, we change the biome in these areas to bamboo jungles and spawn some furry friends. I think this was Steph's favorite part of the whole project. I must admit that these pandas are very cute. I know they had different emotions and behaviors and to finish off this area we added the second dragon arena on the island with an iconic yin and yang inspired symbol carved into the ground that represents the bond the Talon clan shared with their dragons and is quite a stuck contrast. to the scenes found in the fafnir clans arena in the tiger i think you will love the lore in this area and it may just involve the origins of the ender dra from
minecraft gon and with that you snow mountains are complete So let's take a look at the biome.
I hope you enjoyed this transformation. Be sure to let me know your thoughts in the comments. Now there is only one more building episode left. final video and map release now remember if you have any questions about the map please join Trixie Blocks discord server and remember to follow my socials for exclusive updates thanks so much for the support guys i would like to say a special thanks to the of this month. netherite patrons and a special shout out to ryan and james that's all for today so i'll see you next time
