Highlands – Uncharted Territory Mod aims to be a comprehensive improvement of Minecraft biomes, trees, and terrain. If you’ve ever felt bored exploring the world of Minecraft, this is your mod.
In 1.8, Highlands Mod is going into uncharted territory, where no biome mod has gone before. It’s been designed from the ground up, and features from the old 1.6.4 Highlands will be added in as they are updated. Highlands also gives you an incentive to explore into uncharted territory, whether to search for the perfect mountain to build a base on, to complete your botanical garden, or to search for more lucrative mining opportunities.
