Eihort is similar to many other Minecraft map rendering tools available today. However, there is one major advantage that Eihort has over other map renderers: the ability to render an incredibly long distance – even in worlds with complex terrain and objects.
Most players are surprised at how much of the Minecraft world can actually be rendered at any one time. To get an idea of the sense of scope and scale that Eihort 1.6 provides, check out the screenshots in this thread.
Because of its large rendering distances, Eihort is an ideal tool for server admins who want to show off their creations, or for players who have spent countless hours crafting an enormous world.
Eihort 1.6 also updates itself in real-time, which means players can watch themselves construct new objects or alter the terrain. Here are a few other features included in Eihort:
-Accurate rendering of any Minecraft world to an “extreme” view distance
-Semi-realistic day and night cycle
-The ability to switch between underground (Nether) and aboveground (Overworld) views
-Highlight specific types of blocks, like railway blocks, types of ore, and other objects
-Edit the map by changing the default player spawn point or the current position of the player
-Read Minecraft worlds in Anvil and MCRegion formats
What’s with the weird name? According to the tool’s creator, lloigor2, Eihort is a deity invented by Ramsey Campbell, who created the deity within HP Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos. Eihort lives deep within the ground in a network of tunnels, making it an appropriate name for a Minecraft tool.
