That's a shitload of diamonds. I started my branch mine pretty long time ago, and found only 8 so far.

Less precise and informative than kiershar's tutorial on the same subject, so I'd have to say no. Plus at layer 7 you're below magma level, so danger enters the equation.

most of it is luck & i was extremely lucky, at the moment though i spent about half an hour making the tunnel longer and every now and again you find veins of diamonds about 5 wide, also you find alot of coal, gold, redstone and iron so it is an effective way of mining

Nope, caves are flooded with magma from layer 10 and downwards. Magma pools can be found at any level though.

Private server.
you changed the chances of diamonds spawning to a much higher extent.

This is not

"Easy way to find diamonds"

It's

"Watch some guy get lucky, and find a few diamond veins near each other in an act of pure luck"

Morale of the story - Done to death, everyone knows how to find diamonds - dig deep, very deep.

He was actually at layer 12... The topmost bedrock is layer 5, and layers are counted for where your head is. If you hit f3 it should show the y coordinate as your height, just truncate that number that thats the layer you're on.

Seem like an oddly high number of diamonds.  I've been branch mining all week (3-4 days so far) and only found 25 diamonds out of 30 or so some 50-block long branches.

Seriously people. This has been done dozens of times. Everybody knows how to get diamonds. The OP just got lucky. Everybody gets lucky. I once found a vein of 12 diamonds. All I did was dig deep.

It's pure luck.

I admit yes, this is pure luck but you are going to find more diamonds this way than digging around looking for caves and then finding diamond in caves, before usinng this method i had about 13 diamonds now i have  67, beleive me its a bit more than luck

i sw so many things you did wrong, that imSCREAMING at the top of my lungs at my computer screen.

first off, you left SO MANY ORES
secondly, you made tools out of your diamonds. ONLY make a diamond pick, and mabey a diamond sword, and armor. when you make a diamond pick, ONLY use it for obsidion. using it for anything else would be wasting diamonds.

seems to be working really well for everyone whos tried it.  my favorite was either the guy saying he hadnt got ANY diamonds mining layers 6 and 16, read my thread, quickly had 45 diamonds.  or the guy who started a new world and had 7 diamonds within 10mins.

That was pure luck. Also has everyone forgotten about the thread that has finding ores down to a science. viewtopic.php?f=35&t=28299
