If anyone is looking for a better snow world, iv generated "Opium" 3 times and all of them I ended up with snow as far as I can see and many pine forests. Il have to test it more to see if there is always snow.
mine didnt work for that. idk why but mine never works for any of the seeds i type in
Since this thread was started on March 6, 2011 and the latest version of Minecraft that was available at that time was Beta 1.3_01 that's not surprising. You're the first person to post to it since April 2011.
I'm curious, how did you find this thread?
PCMC Release version 1.0.0 came out on Nov. 18, 2011 and there have been at least two (maybe more) times since then when revisions changed how seeds affect world generation.

If you aren't part of the solution, then you obviously weren't properly dissolved.
Did you see the post right before yours? In order to get that version you have to click on edit profile in the launcher and check the option to allow Beta versions, then you should be able to select Beta 1.3_01 from the list (listed as "old_beta b1.3_01"); some other Beta versions may also work but any modern version will most definitely not work.
Incidentally, entering this seed in 1.7 or later produces a world that couldn't be further from a snow seed - deserts, savannas, mesas everywhere, even a jungle just to the north of spawn - with the nearest snowy biome over 5000 blocks away (in the upper-left):
For comparison, this is the same seed in 1.6.4 (back to 1.2.1):
Even if either of these versions had spawned you in a snowy biome that wouldn't mean much; the OP didn't even give any details as to what the seed was like.
