Letters From A Dead Earth

My latest project is a MASSIVE post-apocalyptic Minecraft survival map consisting of 7 complete cities, half a dozen smaller towns and a number of other sites all connected through highways, wilderness trails and back roads. For this project, I'm using Santiago3's texture pack "The End is Extremely Nigh" and populating the various deserted and destroyed areas of the map with a mixture of buildings of my own design and some modified structures from the MCedit schematics forum. Full credit will be given on posts (and in a book in the map) once I release it. To give you an idea of how big this map is-- each of the pictures above comes from a different city or town location and the current size for the map itself (unzipped) is 196 MB.

It's not ready for download yet, but I'm close. I have one city left to build, a few towns to spruce up and assemble and then it's on to bug fixing and inserting a huge number of "written books" that allow the story of what happened to this "Dead Earth" to be discovered by players adventurous enough to explore the map. Sounds like a lot, but at the rate I've been working, it should only be a few weeks. I'm looking to release before the end of October at the very, very latest, but realistically, it should be no later than the beginning of October.
