Unlike what the name suggests, Minecraft’s Alpine Islands map isn’t about the frigid ocean climate. Actually, it’s in a very sunny and warm place, a completely tropical location that can be the wonderful place for a sweet escape to get some fun in the sun. This map is run by a company called Alpine, according to the explanation given by the map’s author, GTzombiekiller. This is a relatively new map, so there comes other questions if more players check it out and compare their experiences with each other.
The island features Alpine HQ, which is a stately building to see from the outside but totally empty on the inside. Island inhabitants live in a few small houses, but this is comparable to any large NPC village spawning naturally in a Minecraft world. You could launch a boat from anywhere near the shore here. Even there are not many people around, the Alpine Islands have a lot more to offer than just a small sparsely populated village. They’re the survival islands which are spawned naturally by the players.
This map features a bank, but that requires a few mods to work efficiently unless you’re just storing stuff in chests. There’s a casino too, where some other mods could really make the building shine more than it usually does. At a dock hugging the island you’ll see the HAL Westerdam, a massive ship you can also spend time exploring, if you so wish. Even when there isn’t much to see, you will easily get lost in that place because of how big it is. Watch out if you decide to go inside. Another huge vessel is The Jacinta which can be found on the opposite side of the island.
Getting lost on the island doesn’t really matter, especially since all your mission is head for the beach then follow it in one direction or another to get the place you want. The Alpine Islands map features so much custom work with still more work to come, you would want to discover it inside and out.
