Dorven Realms is a converter from Dwarf fortress world maps (Not forts!... yet...) into playable minecraft worlds.

To use, simple export Elevation, Elevation with water, and Biome maps from legends mode, and load the files into the program, chose the borders of the area that you want to use for conversion, and generate the world. Depending on the world size and settings used, it can take anywhere from a few minutes, to a few days.

Some notes:
Values between 4-8 for blocks per embark tile work well. 4 gives steeper slopes, while 8 gives more extensive biomes.
Cave height and width can change the feel of the caverns quite a bit. The default values give results that feel closer to DF caverns, but increasing height may be more to some people's taste.

This deserves cross-posting into the Minecraft Forums, if you ask me. Those riverfalls are sexy. <3

If my computer could run Minecraft at any decent clip, I'd totally bug-in to this :3

Most lovely, if I say so myself. I take it you plan on updating it in the future when Minecraft expands its stone respiratory?

I may not need to, actually, depending on how minecraft does things.

Right now, minecraft fills in all the ores itself. It may do that with the new stones too.
