1344x1344 Blocks Desert map!

Featuring:
- No Grass
- No Dirt
- No Trees
- No Animals
- No Water
- No Flowers
- No Reeds
- 5 Oases... If you can find them

You find yourself in a what looks like infinite desert. The only materials you can find come from an old fallen over tree. You must survive. What path do you take? Mine down in a desperate search for minerals or do you think you can keep your head cool and find an oasis on time?

Download Version 1.0


The goal of the map is to "terraform" the desert in a livable environment where the player will have a steady income of wood, food, and possibly sugar.

Rules:
- Do not leave the desert
- No cheating

Feel free to post some pictures of your creations!

This map is randomly generated in Minecraft version 1.3_01 using the seed "desert"
The desert is created with MCEdit, replacing dirt/grass by sand and removing everything else on ground level.

Fun map.  

Spoiler
    There is a cave entrance in the side of the mountain at x=-276, y=-120 that is one of the most extensive natural cave systems I have ever seen.

Can you make the map a little bigger? Can you double it at least? I want to use this map for my server and it is kinda small.

Amazing map, could use some more hidden items.  All in all, it's great.

I think the terrain generator should make big billboards, at least one per chunk, that advertise various things like Cheetos or Dr. Pepper. Would really improve gameplay.

What do i do?
unzip the file and put the folder called "Desert Adventure" inside C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves
start the game and the map should be in your map list in singleplayer

feel free to do it yourself :iapprove:
What you do is this:
1. fly around in a square around the map (keep looking at your coordinates)
2. open the map in MCedit and look for any missing chunks. if there are any go back to minecraft and fly to those positions to create more random terrain
3. select all the new areas (do not select anything underground or else dirt and water will disappear there as well) and replace dirt/grass by sand. after that replace all leaves/trees/flowers/reeds/water by air.
4. if you feel like it add some oases manually.

there are still randomly generated dungeons right? I didn't found any yet though.
I guess I could create some extra big caves with tnt and add hidden chests (also to allow players to get some more food). But I can't find the time at the moment. feel free to do it yourself though.  if you do it give me the link and i'll add it to the 1st post.

I do have experience about hunger mods. Do you have a link for the download? I might add it as a suggestion since there isn't so much food around the map. :SSSS:

There should be, but when I play survival maps, I alway get a kick out of the signs creators put around, and the hidden chests and all.  But, an infinite desert is still pretty epic.
