The seed is "Severus Snape" without the quotation marks. It is for large biomes for version 1.4.5.

Are you tired of spending all day mindlessly branching out for diamonds only to wind up with just enough to make a pickaxe and maybe some boots? Or are you just obsessed with diamonds? Then this seed is for you!

I've created this seed about four or five times and each time I spawn in this general area this time being where the diamond block is. (Although I'm not sharing pictures of it there is also a forest rather close by and if you mosey your way on over you can nab a couple of pumpkins and lots of wood. Combine that with the coal pictured and it's not a bad start.)

From spawnpoint you should be able to see the following overhang which you're going to need to head on over to:
Posted Image

See that small two block wide indentation in the ground? (The one I'm practically covering up with my item bar.) Go on ahead and dig straight down starting on the block that is NOT covered in tall grass. In other words, dig where I've put the diamond block all the way down to the 27th level.
Posted Image

If you do that you'll be rewarded with an abandoned mineshaft!
Posted Image

Go straight forward once you see the mineshaft and do NOT make any major turns. In no time at all you should see:
Posted Image
If you do not see that then you obviously turned like I said not to.

Push yourself through the water and then follow it to:
Posted Image

Hop and skip your way on the other side of that bridge there and there you'll be rewarded with:
Posted Image
For those that can't read the coordinates in the pictures they are:
X -209
Y 14
Z 147
And you get x8 of them.

Move back out of the mineshaft now and head in the direction of this overhang:
Posted Image

On your way you'll pass by this ravine that has a whole bunch of goodies but in order to get diamonds you need iron so just stick with me:
Posted Image

When you spot this area:
Posted Image

Grab your wooden or stone pick and march on over to collect that iron. Move about three blocks to one side though like this:
Posted Image

Dig straight down where I've placed the diamond block until you come across what appears to be a cave. (Choose this spot and you get more iron!) Once you land go immediately right (not that you can head any other way) and travel a short bit to another ravine:
Posted Image

A creature spawner (skelly, I think) is there and you'll be rewarded with (5 Iron, 3 Wheat, 12 String, 2 Redstone, 9 Gunpowder, 1 Cocoa Bean) so now you can make a bow and fishing rod from the string.

Move back up to the surface and get on over to that previous ravine I showed you. When you make your way down you'll notice that another ravine intersects with it:
Posted Image

First bit of diamond we start off with is:
Posted Image
Coordinates are:
X -237
Y 11
Z 298
I removed the water to take a picture of this and you get x2.

Next up is
Posted Image

X -261
Y 11
Z 293
You get x2 here.

Now turn around and go through the waterfall:
Posted Image

Follow that cave directly around (you really can't get lost) and you'll see:
Posted Image

Clear away that gravel and you'll get:
Posted Image

The coordinates are roughly:
X -261
Y 11
Z 270
Yes, I lied and these are not surface but you'll get x2.

Now move back to the waterfall and go on over to:
Posted Image
Coordinates are:
X -271
Y 11
Z 291
x6

There's a cave directly above the previous diamonds. Jump up into that and immediately you'll see:
Posted Image

Coords are
X -271
Y 13
Z 299
A bit more here. You'll get x8 of them.

Now find that nearby waterfall which is right next to some gold:
Posted Image

Move down into that cave area and you'll find this which you'll want to immediately move that top block out:
Posted Image

Just keep on moving forward until you see a pool of lava and more diamond:
Posted Image
There on the other side of the lava at:
X -309
Y 11
Z 299
Careful of the lava but there's x2 of them.

Stay on that side of the lava and you should see this little stone like thing:
Posted Image

If you dig where that torch is (previous diamond shown for reference) just one block you can immediately see:
Posted Image

Coordinates are:
X -305
Y 13
Z 295
And there are x6 of them.

And there you have it! 36 Diamonds. Enough for a full set of armor, pickaxe, and a sword.

I didn't explore everything so feel free to share what you find.

Where can I pick this seed up? I'm new to the forum, so I'm quite the noob. I can't seem to find it, I've been searching for this seed all over the forum. :/

I didn't know it's so much hard to READ.

Pfft. Different folks look for different things in their seeds. I myself like interesting natural formations etc. Villages can be fun to expand, but temples and pyramids are just gimmes for people who aren't patient enough to dig for their shiny goodies.

Kudos to OP for using Isabella 2 ;]

Going to rolling this map tonight.

Looks nice. When I saw the title I thought 'Troll who's saying he found over 30 diamonds on ground level' but I learnt it was another misunderstood title.
To all of you people who think Notch is still working on the game, he stopped working on Minecraft in late 2011. Get your facts straight and stop spamming his twitter about Minecraft updates.

I didn't look very hard but I did come across two plains villages. Neither has a blacksmith and, honestly, good luck fixing the first one up. The coordinates are X -314 Z 803 for the first one and X -314 Z 1332 for the second. There's a jungle near the first village but I didn't bother looking through it too much because jungle and snow biomes irritate me. I covered a fair amount of mountainous biomes and plains biomes but I didn't find any desert.

For "interesting natural formations" you just might enjoy the hollow mountain area at X 7 Z 71. :]

Anyone found anything but forest and hill biomes in this seed? I've been flying around for a while and all I've found is something so small I can't tell if it's a legit desert biome or just a big beach.
