Season 4 (25 February 2016 – 8 April 2017), also known as Season IV, was the fourth season of Hermitcraft. The Season 4 world was started on the 1.9 version of Minecraft, and it was gradually updated until version 1.11.2.
This season's world was based around a Mesa, where most Hermits set up their bases. For the first time, a system of dividing the playing area in function-based districts was employed, colour-coded as such: Commercial (brown), Entertainment (orange), Farming (yellow), Industrial (green), Municipal (white), Residential-North (blue) and Residential-South (purple).
World Seed: -3558144527798569323  Spawn Island: X:-1150 Z: 2180 Mesa: X: -1200 Z: 1400 Dungeons increased from 7 to 35
Map of Districts
Hermits living in the North Residential District included: Cubfan135, FalseSymmetry, Iskall85, MumboJumbo, GoodTimesWithScar, TangoTek, Welsknight and xBCrafted. Hermits living in the South Residential District include: ZombieCleo, (to be continued)... Docm77, EthosLab, and PythonGB did not have bases in either of the residential districts. Instead, Docm77 & EthosLab set up a gaming area and PythonGB set up a sea town nearby (but not in) the South District.
Seventeen first episodes came out on the first day and one live-stream repost. Cubfan135, FalseSymmetry, GoodTimesWithScar, iJevin, ImpulseSV, Iskall85, Jessassin, JoeHills, MumboJumbo, PythonGB, Rendog, TangoTek, TinFoilChef, Welsknight, xBcrafted, XisumaVoid, and ZombieCleo all posted on the first day. Biffa2001, Docm77, EthosLab, VintageBeef and Zueljin did not post until a later date.
Biffa2001 had a series of giant blocks as a house, as well as setting up a mining outpost as a base.
Cubfan135 built a pueblo-inspired village in the blue district known as the Redlands, as well as building a mansion-house above the village. As well as this, his main project in this season was creating a custom biome next to GoodTimesWithScar, made to look like a volcanic wasteland.
Docm77 had no actual base, but instead worked on a second minigame district with EthosLab known as "Dangland."

FalseSymmetry built a giant jellyfish with an underground section in the blue district, as well as a "FalseLabs" laboratory, shown left.
A "frontier outpost" which included a tent camp, a train network with two stations, an underground base and an underground Western town.
An underground stone base underneath a giant wheat field on his own plateau. Features a giant wither statue.
A mansion inspired by Tony Stark's mansion from the Iron Man films, which had the interior designed by FalseSymmetry and was landscaped by GoodTimesWithScar.
A mining outpost in the mesa's blue district. This build was the origin of the material "Iskallium" which would feature in the vast majority of his later bases. He also made a gladiator base around one of his PvP arenas later on in the season.
"The Greatest Plains," a farming area outside the Mesa which was inspired by the farm from the movie Field of Dreams. Joe also had a mesa house made entirely of various types of stained clay (later terracotta) in the purple district.
A circular sky-base made out of sandstone and red clay. Surrounding it were many smaller contraptions in an industrial district, as well as a Batcave with a missile silo.
A pirate sea-base near the shopping district made with acacia and jungle wood. PythonGB enlisted Welsknight to help finish the base. He also had a tree base in the mesa's purple district.
A "Lush Mesa" which was terraformed by Rendog and GoodTimesWithScar. He had several types of houses, one village made of wood that portruded out of the plateaus and one made of red sandstone. The Hermitron center, which he built, also had its entrance here.
A castle made with red clay in the blue district, next to Welsknight's starter house and ImpulseSV's mansion.
TinFoilChef made a giant diamond house around his initial "House of Cards" made from diorite. He also built a giant strand of DNA later on.
A Dwarven base outside of the mesa, which was connected to the mesa by a pathway that Welsknight dotted with various builds. In the mesa, Wels also had two starter houses, which were connected by underground tunnels.
VintageBeef built a steampunk-inspired island (shown left), as well as a space base inspired by the surface of the mesa looking like Mars.
xBCrafted built a small house in the residential area, but didn't build anything else due to becoming inactive.
The OctoVoid, a giant complex surrounding an ocean monument off the coast of the mesa. XisumaVoid recorded several "Epicsodes" that featured hours of work on this base. He also had a medieval village in the purple district with terracotta/clay roofs.
A tower in the purple district with a creepy eye in the center.
Zueljin built a large house between the blue and white districts.
