Because you're not regenerating the farlands chucks you originally had. Load new chunks and they'll all be ocean.

There's something more creepy about an endless ocean than the farlands. =P

why would they fix the farlands bug if they said they wouldn't?

"We’re probably not going to fix these bugs until it becomes common for players to experience them while playing legitimately. My gut feeling is that nobody ever has so far, and nobody will. Walking that far will take a very long time. Besides, the bugs add mystery and charisma to the Far Lands."

and why would they get rid of the far lands and say the endermen comes from the far land? :(

Enderman does not come from farland, since his name was related to Slenderman, members complained and asked notch to change their name to Farlanders,but Notch said no and made a joke that he should change The name "Farlands" to "The End"
Creeper is not an result of bug, Creeper was coded,textured,made all by Developers
Farlands is not a result of bug, it was a generation code that made them generate, just like Mineshafts,Strongholds,NPC Villages and E.T.C
and I honestly like an mysterious endless ocean than a huge wall of lag

Farlands were horrid distortions, I mean honestly I stopped playing single player and plated MP only on MC and to get to the far lands would take some 800 hours of walking, provided you didn't die and had to start over.

30Million blocks is a lot to generate as well  - and it has to generate more then that as you run off (since the what, nearest 9x9 chunks are loaded while you walk? I forget)  so youd be causing MASSIVE server lag no matter how fast the server was or claimed to be (easily the most commonly used way to cause "lag free" servers to crash - have 4 players join and run in NESW directions, generating new map chunks in all 4 directions at once, easily fixed by Borders.)


So if you wanna live close to em, you better make a Single player map -use your cheat to get to them (mcedit, teleport, speed, fly, whatever) generate em up, and then use a plugin to save that section so you will always have it, no matter what the changes are.

Personally I like the ocean, got big plans for it.

The far lands were a gleatchure. I dont think Notch removed them on purpose, I think they are a casualty of the new biome code.

The farlands still exist in that lighting, mobs and blocks stop working properley past 30million blocks out, however the new map generation code removes the anomalous chunk splicing

Aren't Endermen from the Far Lands? How can they be from the Far Lands if there are no Far Lands?!

There is only one answer. Steve's furnaces polluted the atmosphere, and the resultant global warming melted all the snow biomes and flooded the far lands, causing the Endermen to flee their lost homes.

(Heh, this is doubly ironic when you consider that water is outright lethal to them. XD)

Creepers were accidentally created from a failed attempt at a pig. While it's not actually a bug, I think that's what the OP meant.

Wait, so how big is a typical world then?  The area of land surrounded by ocean. Until this thread, I thought I was going to hit another continent eventually (I am out over 20,000 now from my spawn and only small islands are around).
I have no way to get feathers out this far and things are getting frustrating.

I have a slight feeling that the farlands were not removed by accident, and no, there are no 'endless' oceans. There is still a small possibility of finding the mainland at x/z 30,000,000, but of course you're unable to travel further beyond the point of where lighting/mob path finding no longer functions. Beyond this point you'll end up either falling into the void or in a glitched, unmovable position, this is basically the 'end of the world'.
Chunks are also unable to generate beyond this point.

Notice that there's no chunk generation beyond this position:

Endermen are from the farlands, why else do you think people suggested to change the name in the first place?
The farlands is a bug, it marks the limit of the world generation code where it starts to glitch out and I assume they
made it ocean to prevent those glitches from happening anymore
