I'm curious, how did you find this year-old thread (and just to post that)?
(this is WAY outdated by now; I've mined around 2 million blocks in this world by now, or would have if I had not reverted it to an unmodded state, without the biomes I mentioned; here are maps of the unmodded world. At last count I had more than 1.2 million resources, only counting filled double chests)
I wouldn't question it. People revive multiple years old dead threads pretty much every day. Reading the date is tough apparently.
