Meta worlds are worlds located within other worlds. True to its name, the Metaworlds Mod for Minecraft lets players create their own custom worlds inside other worlds. Does that sound crazy to you? Probably.
In the words of the mod’s creator, MMM_MasterM:
“The Metaworlds Mod essentially lets you create full Minecraft worlds within the normal worlds which can have arbitrary relative positioning and rotation (yaw) and which can be moved in realtime. So this could be used to create zeppelins or flying islands or alike.”
This mod allows you to create smaller worlds that travel through your existing world as a separate entity. Your normal world stays stationary while you can move around in your metaworld.
Here are the mod’s most important features:
-Metaworlds can have arbitrary positions and orientations relative to the stationary world
-The metaworlds are fully editable at all times, just like the normal world
-Save files of the metaworlds are saved as normal world saves in subfolders
-All normal block mechanics from vanilla Minecraft will also work in the metaworlds
Here’s how to use this mod: after installing it, you place a SubWorldCreator block in your world. This block can be found in the same creative tab as Cobblestone and should be the last block in that list.
After placing the SubWorldCreator block, you’ll create a new metaworld. This metaworld will take a few moments to load because you’re effectively creating a new full-featured world. You can move the metaworld by adding a SubWorldController block to the game. This block can be found next to the SubWorldCreator block in Creative mode.
To use the SubWorldController block, simply right click on it. To release movement control of your world, press Shift.
So if you want to create a zeppelin, build it in your metaworld and then add a SubWorldController block. Move your zeppelin around using that block and travel around your stationary world.
