Despite the trees mentioned in the name, Minecraft’s Alpine Islands map isn’t in the middle of some frigid ocean climate. It’s actually in a very sunny and warm place, a completely tropical location that seems like the perfect place to get away for a vacation and some fun in the sun. See, it’s actually run by a company called Alpine, or at least that’s the explanation given by the map’s author, GTzombiekiller. This is a relatively new map, so there are bound to be other questions which arise as more players check it out and compare their experiences with each other.
As it stands now, the island features Alpine HQ, which is an imposing building to see from the outside but totally empty on the inside. There are a few small houses with island inhabitants, but this is comparable to any large NPC village you might find naturally spawning in a Minecraft world. You could launch a boat from anywhere near the shore here, but why would you want to? Even though there are only a few people around, the Alpine Islands have a lot more to offer than just a small, sparsely populated village. They’re the survival islands players wish would spawn naturally.
The Alpine Islands map features a bank, but that does require a few mods to work correctly unless you’re just storing stuff in chests. There’s a casino too, where another couple of mods could really make the building shine more than it does already. At a dock hugging the island you’ll find the HAL Westerdam, a massive ship you can also take the time to explore, if you so wish. It’s very easy to get lost in that place even if there isn’t much to see, just because of how big it is. Be careful if you do decide to go inside. The Jacinta, another huge vessel, can be found on the opposite side of the island.
Getting lost on the island isn’t such a concern, especially since all you need to do is head for the beach then follow it in one direction or another to get wherever you w ant. The Alpine Islands map features so much custom work with still more work to come, you’re going to want to explore it inside and out. There are lots of custom maps that just don’t enthrall players to check them out thoroughly like this one does, so it manages to stand out.
