Updated October 4th to version 1.3. This version features the return of the glaciers, a new unique portal, a few bug fixes and one more really big thing. Bursting to life in an abandoned temple deep buried among the trees, the Twilight Forest’s first boss stakes his claim. Are you brave enough to face down the monstrous and enormous serpent deity? More details further down the post.
The Twilight Forest realm is an endless world like regular Minecraft. Nearly all of it is densely forested. It has more of an enchanted or faerie tale feel than the main Minecraft world. The skies are perpetually dim, giving a darker, somewhat gloomy cast to the world below. An overstory of larger trees further shades most of the world below, creating a canopy covering most of the world (so thick that you can actually walk on it most places.) The canopy is pierced only occasionally by massive trees that rise to the ceiling of the world. The terrain is flatter, or at least less mountainous than regular Minecraft, but you will occasionally encounter hills, sometimes rising far above the canopy level. These hills are hollow too, containing caves filled with valuable ores, treasure and dangerous monsters.
