GAME ON! i accept this challenge. but, since there are no rules about mining inside the cave wont it be simple to just make a cobblestone house, an oven, then smelt some glass, cover some lava with the glass, and use that glass covered lava for light for the house and tree farm? thats what i have done so far haha
Yeah, the rules may get refined over time. We'll just have to see what people do with the current rule set.
I'm wary of adding in any sort of "you cant place blocks" rule, because that could make things too difficult. Then again, the harder it is, the more awesome you are when you succeed :biggrin.gif:
I would like to be able to place some blocks, maybe only ones directly replacing a block that was already there with whatever you want, you just cant build structures. Still, that would allow you to hollow out a room easily enough to hide in.
Theres also the issue of mining and hollowing rooms out in general. Restrict to only extracting ores and needed materials + a block or two beyond that to see if you got it all. Mining to extend a lava/water flow should be allowed.
Everyones opinion would be nice. Maybe we'll just see what people do before deciding if its too easy once you get settled in your 'house'.
I'm not saying the 404 cave isn't cool and amazing. I mean to say, that unlike the 404 cave, it wasn't actually directly implemented by Notch.
The 404 cave is unlike the 404 cave?
The 404 cave is in fact, just another cave.
Well yeah, we all know there's nothing 'special' about the cave. For all we know/care, there may well be just as interesting caves from seeds 403 or 405. It's an artifact of the world generation, no more and no less. No one believes there is something significant or mystical about it. It's just kinda cool. It's nothing like Herobrine, not at all.
I'll eat my words if Notch said this was actually done on purpose.
And I'd eat my hat.
That said, this is actually the more fun things that the community has come up with.
Except this was discovered not invented.
Imma go see if there's anything cool in seed 502...
Oh and the new rule sound good :biggrin.gif:

I was reading a thread about how the new versions may change the map generation, so I decided to save the save and upload it. This will also place the player right next to the 404 gravel as well! You only have 9.5 hearts, partly because you're lazy and used this save, and partly because I spawned on a cactus! I'll put the link in the OP shortly.
I dont care about credit, im pretty sure there are tons more amazing things to be found under all the other maps. Im just happy i brought some fun for a few people today and helped at least give one map on new patch day 1 where the most fun was to be had underground, not just above ground.
I was really close to skipping 404 over, it looks really bland and boring at first, for some reason I was drawn to all that gravel there. Something just didnt seem right.
P.S there are 8 diamond in that cave where they are able to be seen from lava or dug 1 square down.
Im exploring other seed maps currently glacier is amazing up to. So is another seed ive made called minick1932
minick1932 is gonna be my first build i think. around x -11, z 26. Im gonna make my first house in that horseshoe type bowl or whatever that is.
I didn't actually go straight down to the bottom of the world when I entered the cave. I carefully worked my way down the waterfall and found an opening a little way down. I went in there and found a nice little room with a shelf and lava lighting up the entire room.
I set up camp there, and mined out the ores I found in the immediate area. After that I started exploring the connecting caves a bit, but there was tons of mobs so I went back up for a break. I then started funneling the lava down the caves to give me some more light and a clear path back to my camp.
While building this lava river I saw another light source, obviously more lava, and went to check it out. It was nothing special, and the cave looked like it was going to end there when I heard a noise above my head...
That was standing on the ledge staring straight at me when I turned around. I quickly jumped and hit it a few times to kill it without taking any damage. The damage taken was from a skeleton a few minutes earlier that got a couple shots on me before I killed him. So far those are the only 2 kills I have.
I'm now trying to see if I can grow some trees. I had some bone meal, but I wasted it all on a sapling that didnt grow because the ceiling probably wasnt high enough at the time. I was dumb and kept clicking until I had none left. Hopefully those will grow, as they are the only 4 saplings I had.
Now, I have a few questions from playing this:
1. Why do the caves look so much different now that I cant use torches? I know they're the same as they were before, but they just seem.... different.
2. How will I get more food? I killed some pigs to start and have 3 cooked pork left, but besides finding mushrooms for stew I dont think I have any renewable source of food. This could be bad.
3. What the hell am I supposed to do with all this coal?
