For those of you not familar with the generator, this one makes a desert of sand dunes, with a few hard to find oases with trees. There are giant cliffs and volcanoes, along with some trap-filled dungeons, and deeper down, some ore-filled caves.
I haven't really made any changes to this other than to plug it into my most recent engine, so this should work exactly like the old one, except now it generates a nether version of the map that's identical to the overworld version.
Screenshots (shamelessly copied from my original release ):
To run this generator:
1. Download PrimordialDesertV2.exe from either of the above links
2. Put the .exe somewhere on your system and run it.
3. It will ask you for a world name and a size in chunks. The world it generates will be X by X chunks, where X is the number you give. If you want, you can specify dune parameters too, but you don't need to.
4. Once the generator is done (it will say "press enter to exit") there should be a folder in the same directory as the .exe with the name you gave in step 3.
5. Copy this new folder to %appdata%\.minecraft\saves (or wherever the save files for Minecraft are kept on your system).
6. Run Minecraft and select the world that corresponds with the name you gave to play.
Look in the dungeons of the world, specifically for a trap that involves cactus. Take them back to the surface, start a farm.
Also, I've noticed that hunger is a huge problem now as well... Oh well, I'll deal with it. It doesn't help that no passive mobs are spawning on my oasis... but I'm working around that.
Could you post a few pics of the nether version? I'd like to see what it looks like before I go to the trouble to get there. Or answer this question: When you say "Identical to the overworld version", do you mean that it's Exactly the same? Or that it's sort of the same but uses nether blocks?
Edit: Noticed people asking for mac compatibility already, and saw it a lot on other generator threads. I'm currently generating a couple of maps, if you'd like I could try to get them uploaded.
Edit 2: Also (yes, I know I'm putting a lot into this post), could you do something about the biomes in this map? It's kind of annoying to find rain and snow in a giant desert, it doesn't really fit... Just a program to make the whole thing desert would be nice.
it looks nice and all but i have no cule how to get this woking on minecraft i dont understand the instrouctions givin
You download the .exe, run it, answer the questions that the program gives you and wait for it to finish. Look for the resulting save file in the same place as the .exe, drag the whole thing into your saves folder in .minecraft.
In case you don't know where the .minecraft folder is:
Find the Run program, or the search bar on windows 7, and type %appdata% into it. Look for .minecraft in the window that opens.
This only comes in a .exe, and so does not run on Macs.
If this doesn't help, please post again and say what part you're getting stuck on.

These maps are super hostile, Their creator is evil (that's a good thing), And THE CAKE IS A LIE.---I use Map Generators! Bored of normal Minecraft? Try them!
This is my favorite generator. I've put tons of time into the worlds generated with it. Have you spoken with Jens or Notch about potentially incorporating it into the main game, or maybe taking inspirations from it? It's seriously way more fun than normal mode, even with hunger mechanics it wasn't really designed for.
