Thanks for sharing this, my second world with some good tips for getting started. Plus lots of sugar cane in the sandy channels north and west of the spawn point for making paper for maps. Ideal starting base for exploring.
Does that nearby ocean go far?
Chest minecart with 4 diamonds at around 718,30,-476. It's in the abandoned mineshafts down there... there are several other minecarts with chests in the vicinity, one with another diamond, one with some bread and iron ingots. Explore around, but don't get lost heh, it's twisty down there. Oh, and there are for sure at least 2 cave spider spawners in the mineshafts.
awesome seed. just one question. what is the program to make the map of biomes that you have in the post?
It's called Amidst and there is a link to the topic where it is discussed in the first post of this topic.
It is a stand alone program that can take a seed and then use the routines in the Minecraft.jar and your java run time files to produce a map of the world that would be produced by MC if you entered that seed.
This is MUCH faster than having MC actually generate the world and lets you see very large number of world maps very quickly.
The newest version (3.6) is now out.
Below are the download links.
Exe for Windows, App for Macs, and Jar for Linux and other systems that can use Java.
This Seed contains all biomes within a 2000 block radius starting from [0,0].
It is very rare to find 'em all within this radius. I used a batch script to find it.
Feel free to explore this world and post screenshots and reviews.
This seed is gorgeous!
- all biomes within 2000 blocks
- 3 huge savannah plateau M biomes
- massive mesa area with wonderful bryce spot
- one of the largest birch forest M biomes (large birchs) i've ever seen, next to mesa bryce
- also lot of standard birch forests all connected north east of mesa bryce
- massive jungle in the east with huge roofed forest inside
- south east: mega taiga und mega spruce taiga
- north: ice land with spikes biome
- NO swamplands in between exept the islands north east (i hate swamps!)
- mushroom biome!
- there's even room for a massive lake/ocean with a lot if islands in it
- if you love swamplands don't try this seed
Large abandoned mine complex 254,36,-406 takes you to an entrance in a cave complex on the north western edge of the mine. Been clearing it out for about 3 hours now.Found 3 chests so far, and a dark room full of spider webs I rapidly walled up for later attention once I get some potions - suspect a spider spawner in there.One of the chests contained a book with 2 enchantments and an enchanted leather hat. the other two just melon seeds, iron, bread and a little bit of gold. Should have noted the chest locations sorry.
Edit: definitely a cave spider spawner, 191,35,-311
Zombie Spawner 197,26,-425 Time to build an XP farm. almost enough room for a 23 block drop, hope the bedrock doesn't end up getting in the way.
2 chests nearby - Iron horse armour, 2 saddles, some redstone, a name tag and 4 music discs.
