It's so I can see the terrain under the vegetation (not underground, the surface terrain) in this rainforest, but if it can't be done without creating the invisible window exploit (which is NOT my intention here) or is otherwise not legit, then never mind.

Alternatively, if someone could make a map with height indicating gradiations for the island that Amazonis is on, that would be cool.

The invisible window exploit from leaf blocks wouldn't do much, it'd only hide leaf blocks. Just like you can see between the leaves now, if you make them completely transparent, the leaves will be invisible. Since there aren't leaves underground you can't really use it to see underground, unless it hides all blocks behind them, in which case you'd only see the void. That's what my logic tells me at least.

But no, it's not legit to do that. I can make the map, I guess I should map the world soon anyway. Idk when it will be finished.

I could check it out in SP to see how it looks though, or I could wait for the map.

Here is the map.

If that blue slash in the south central area is the ravine that the portal is at, I thought it was further west. Not that the ingame map is GPS accurate.

It'd be nice if the map program were able to show more subtle changes in terrain and in more detail, which I guess you can't really change.

Anyways, thanks for the heightmap. I think that basin to the west of the ravine (water filled as it is) could work for my purpouses.
