I just randomly found a nice seed that spawns you next to an NPC-Village with all biomes (except Mushroom) in a close range. Heres a pic of the Spawn area on Amidst:
As you see there is also a stronghold near the spawn, and the seed also features a HUGE cave system with several intersecting ravines!
Here are the pics:
Forest, pine forest, desert...
... jungle and swamp biome are visible from spawn.
NPC Village and Stronghold
The Npc village
Content of the blacksmith chest:
Dig down here to enter the Stronghold!
The Cave System
This spot is right at the spawn and looks quite nice.
Go into the little hole in the bottom right of this picture:
... and you will land here!
Another ravine intersecting with the first one.
A third ravine to the right...
... and its not a small one either!
A fourth ravine, intersecting with the third.
This one has a lot of lava in it
Another random ravine. Of course, the cave system is much bigger than just those few ravines! Youll sure find some interesting things when exploring it. I didnt find an abandoned mineshaft there though.
UPDATED WITH MORE SCREENS!
Theres actually a mineshaft just a bit north of the stronghold in the mountain biome (thanks to xJapanimation for saying!) It is also very easy to reach, just go down into the little water hole at x=710, z=270:
You can safely swim down the waterfall into this ravine!
Its easy to find melon seeds, there are several chests that contain some:
There are also several spawners! (Normal ones, not so many cave spider spawners here)
Second one, I wont post the coordinates of them all, youll have to explore yourself:
Third one, this one contains a music disc!
Two adjacent cave spider spawners, and a naturally growing underground flower
The second, larger mineshaft
I actually found a SECOND mineshaft as well! Its quite far away from spawn (x=1500, z=250), but its also a lot bigger (has many more ravines and cave spider spawners), so it might be worth checking out!
The entrance is here:
When you go down there, you will land... guess where.. in another ravine!
Intersection No. 1
Intersection NO. 2
A cave spider spawner, there are plenty more, but I didnt want to screen them all!
The mineshaft is pretty messed up at some places:
This seed has so many ravines Ive lost count while exploring the map. I must have found about 20+, Im not kidding. Here are just a few more:
Theres a pretty awesome ravine right next to the NPC Village, maybe you have already found it
View from inside
Theres even a small ravine in the jungle:
And one more at the beginning of the nearest taiga biome:
More cool stuff
Heres a better look on the jungle biome at spawn:
This awesome spawner is at x=364, y=31, z=317. Scroll down to post 15 if you want to see whats so special about it
A nice mountain range at x=800, z=250. For those people who cant live without them
Another nice one at x=-150, z=800
A beautiful jungle beach This is at x=500, z=750
Screen of the snow biome which is at x=-300, z=700. The little green spot seems like a nice place for building
Another Update - A huge Crater and DIAMONDS!
Let me give you another proof that this seed has just about anything
Ill show you a really easy way to get a total of 12 diamonds AT ONCE. Prepare for a little journey across the desert at spawn, and first move to the coordinates x=750, z=30
Here you will find a huge crater/overhang/hollow mountain that looks quite interesting (this was found by EpicBuilder333) This would be an awesome place to build your base...
...and connect it with a monster farm! This mountain actually has a buried skeleton spawner right next to it!
Now after this little sightseeing tour, lets move on to the spot where the diamonds are Theres an entrance to a cave in the forest at x=650, z=-70:
This hole leads you down directly to layer 15. Go down the hole where the waterfall ends at the gravel...
...and you will land here! OMG!! There are 2 diamond veins directly next to each other (with 9 diamonds), I didnt even know that was possible o_O
But thats not all! Go just 20 steps into the cave to the right in this picture (its really not further):
And there are 3 more diamonds at this lava pool! (Bit hard to reach) 12 Diamonds in just 2 minutes
As if that weren't enough, if you go just a little further into the cave, you will even find ANOTHER MINESHAFT:
Nether Fortress and another huge cave system
The nearest Nether Fortress in this world is at x=200, y=300 (Kc_steve found it ;))
It has two close Blaze spawners outside, maybe they could be connected to a monster farm:
I also found another gigantic cave system at x=850, y=30, z=300. It has several intersecting ravines, another abandoned mineshaft with several spawners and tons of wide caves and big cave rooms! This may be the biggest cave system found in this seed yet
95% of teens would scream if Justin Beiber was about to jump of the top of the Empire State Building. If you are in the 5% that would grab a seat and some popcorn and yell JUMP! JUMP! JUMP! post this into your sig.
You know you want too
Glad you guys like the seed =) I just went flying around in it and digging holes to find an abandoned mineshaft, and guess what I found? I think i just discovered the most amazing zombie spawner in Minecraft history This spawner is basically an already built in Monster/Exp-farm into Minecraft Ill show you what I mean:
Dig down at x=364, z=316 to reach the spawner:
You see the ground of the spawner is mostly destroyed so most of the spawned Zombies fall down into the little cave below (and the other ones get pushed down eventually). After that, a lot of the Zombies will go into the water to the left, go down a little waterslide and land in a dead end without being able to get back up
Now you can easily smack those Zombies from above because they are getting pulled down by the water
First, I just wanted to say thank you for sharing this amazing seed. My friend's and I actually started a survival server on this seed and I think it is just about the best seed I've come across. Not only do you spawn next to a village, but as soon as you enter the jungle next to the desert, there's a huge ravine. If that wasn't enough, you travel up the small mountain biome next to the jungle and if you dig down, there's a stronghold! But that's not the end of it. If you travel down the mountain biome towards the flat surface to the left once you travel up it, you come to a lake. Around the lake there is two cave systems that go directly down into the stronghold. They aren't long windy caves either. They go directly down into it. This is truly an amazing seed for those wishing to play survival and actually beat the game.
