    Hello everyone! I got bored and decided I wanted to build something! So I'm designing a Volcano-themed SkyWars Map but there is one problem:
    The Turd-Volcano. In my opinion it looks horrible. Can someone help me with this? :/ (This map uses 1.10 Blocks and is a 12 Player Map)

    It looks good with the Magma Blocks, try using:
    - Coal blocks/obsidian = to look like old burnt rock
    - Nether Wart block/Red Nether Brick = floor within the volcano to like hot red
    - Lava blocks = make fall down the side of the volcano in a small pool.

    You could shape the volcano to allow a lava path, just saying that its not a volcano without Lava ;)

    Actually, I was planning to make a decent lava pit underneath the island because:
    1. No Campers hiding underneath the island
    2. Real Volcano's also have a lava pit underneath the crater :p

    Yeah thats good idea, have lava within the "Magma Chamber", sorry I study Geography. But I would still think that players would like to see lava come out of the crater.

    Maybe have some volcanoes active and some inactive with no lava pouring out the top (like real life).

    I don't understand why you didn't make the terraforming first, flipped it and then started working on the island..

    I'm not sure but those magma blocks (if that's their name) give damage to the player that stands on them , which could make it very annoying to walk on your island without dying. Or when you're in a fight and you win with half a heart and then you accidently stand on one of those magma blocks

    Me if I would die because of a magma block:

    Alright, it's your map and I wish you the best of luck with it. Just keep in mind that it's gotta be up to the standard, and make sure to check out Undead's tips.

    I used Magma Blocks for the following reasons:
    1. When I tried with lava it became ONE BIG MESS.
    2. Magma Blocks are way more safer and nice looking then just lava. I believe they don't do more then a cactus.
    3. When shifting you actually take no damadge from Magma Blocks! :)
    4. I try to keep them on the volcano instead of the island.
    5. And I wanted to create a small magma chamber underneath :p (There will be a big lava magma chamber in the island to stop people hiding underground :p

    Probally put some terraforming under the map.. Thought it might look like an upside down volcano.. Maybe try to put cobwebs near the top to symbolize the smoke coming out of the volcano? As Camezonda said, maybe try adding burnt rocks.. The tree maybe try making a custom one.. The floor could use a tiny bit more detail, maybe less magma blocks as they could be anoying, make the island a little bit bigger, and in a sorta "different shape" besides a circle. This is optional but you could put red stained glass to make it look like lava is "popping out of the volcano. Fire in random places of the volcano.. That's all I can think of.

    Alright I'm planning to make the following changes:
    -
    Adding Hardened Clay to the Island Pallet.
    - Adding the Stained Glass and some Cobweb above the Volcano to make a small eruption.
