Try this seed
GiveMeSomeOil

You will literally get no more than 10X9 of above surface land block. No trees no nothing. Just you surrounded by water in a small island

Spawn is on the island.

I am trying it out now.
I built a "home-hole" and wait for the one tree to regrow, which is quite hard, because I haven't found coal yet, so no torches ;)
Nice challenge

Edit: Yay, it has grown! Now let's hope for some more saplings.

Wrong.
There is one tree and you absolutely have to replant the saplings.
I survived my first two nights, and I even managed to get me some iron.
I love this world!

Soooo giving that a go.  I'm actually sick to death of constantly spawning in the forest in 1.8...
We should all post screenshots of how we get on! :D

Bravo!!!  Where some other alleged islands turn out to have land forms near them because the poster failed to turn up their view distance or didn't wait to see if any chunks were going to load, this island is the real McCoy!  Just what I was looking for.  Well done!

Hmmm...

the hardest thing is, that there are no animals, and somehow they don't spawn even with enough lighting -.-
I need them!!!
Any ideas for making animals spawn?

You can make do without animals by farming for your food, but getting cloth for a bed is a real challenge.  You could kill a bunch of spiders and use the string to craft the cloth, but I haven't had anything but creepers spawning and threatening to blow up my precious trees.

Yeah... I made a small "farm" with four wheat and I only encountered creepers and one zombie.
So, I'm glad that on easy the health stops dropping at five hearts. Or I probably be dead right now.
Right now I've got five trees planted.

I think this is the perfect survival island map. Lots of the new island maps being posted don't have trees on them. Nice find!

i like this seed, i build a little aboveground dirt home, but starved to death on the second morning, because i had not built the home in time, and i kept getting ambushed by spiders and skeletons. i did get two bones out of it, though, which let me get wood quite a lot faster. (when i cut down the first tree, i got absolutely no saplings until the very last leaf dissapeared, leaving me with only one sapling to use, but it was better than nothing. i made some charcoal, made 4 torches, smelted myself some glass, and made some glass panes, and have been living quite comfortably since.i'm gonna save this seed in a .txt file, named "PanicTheFirst's Lonely Island" anyway, in my opinion, it's better than the original survival island was, has just as much resources, and since it's a seed, it's completely natural, while survival island was most likely edited to add the same functionality.
in other words, good find. =)

Diamonds. :Diamond: :Diamond: :Diamond:
I have no idea why i have warn status, but at least it's at 0%... anyway, here's my signature.(it's not much, but it gets the point across.)

1. Destroy tree (I was lucky and got 4 saplings).
2. Planted saplings close together close to water and cleared a bit of land so its flat (Close lets me put torches later and lets all of them grow faster).

3. I turned the wood into a crafting chest and a boat with enough wood left for:
-Sickle (Used for planting seeds)
-Sword  (Kill NPC faster so less hunger... noticed more you punch more hunger u build)

4. Took the boat to a island close by ...
if you head on the -X axis for a tiny bit you will see it to the side.

Nothing on the island apart from some more weeds and sugercane.... farmed both (weeds gave me about 15-20 seeds) and took some dirt too.

5. Back to the trusty island, planted the farmed the grass/planted my seeds.
6. Made myself a nice small trench to rough out the night.

Was a cold night but I had 1 creeper (nearly took out my trees :P) and 3 zombies... but no zombie meat :(.


But hopefully by a few days I will have my food and 4 new trees to farm.

Going to farm some cobblestone from the floor of the ocean to make a furnace, then Planks+wood = Charcol = Torch.

So i can grow my crops during the night, hopefully be enough so i dont starve :).
Remember to keep checking the other islands to get more wheat seeds.




*Edit*
After floating around on my boat I have found the mainland lol... Chickens, desert, forest everything. Really dissapointing as I liked the island challange.

Here's a map of the immediate area, of all the islands only the starting island has a tree so it's not even worth it to go to any other islands.

Also the layout of the islands made for a funny image while making the map.

This seed is awesome! A great challenge. I think I am going to make a -1767412485926484027 challenge type thread. Do you mind if I do? I will give you credit for discovering the seed of course.
