EDIT: Please note that with 1.9 pre-release this seed is broken. It only works on 1.8 versions of minecraft. I have however, created an adventure map based off this seed that is compatible with 1.9 and hopefully future releases. If you enjoy this seed... you will love my spin on it...

-- Castaway Island --

G'day!

Welcome to what i believe the be the holy grail of ALL Survival Island style maps. This is a completely natural ABSOLUTE SPAWN seed. No downloads WHAT SO EVER!!!

Description: The seed will spawn you on a tiny island facing (sometimes, direction is random) a medium-large island with a beautiful bay area begging to be colonized.

There is a single tree on the larger island to help you get under way. The island contains many hidden secretes, including a small open ended tunnel for shelter, a small begginers tunnel with some coal, and two (joined deeper down) ravine chasms that intersect a complex network of caves that will take you deep... deep down into one of the biggest underground lava caverns i have EVER seen naturally spawned. Dont get me wrong, navigating the caves to the caverns will be long and dangerous but the minerals at the end (and along the way!) are well worth it!! It will take many... many... many dangerous trips back and forth before you can fully explore and collect all the resources in these caves. I would even go as far as to say many of you will die and most likely give up even trying!

The maps allows you to take things at your own pace however i would strongly suggest finding some spiders on your first night and building that all to crucial fishing rod now that the 1.8 hunger system is in place.

There are many surrounding islands full of there own mystery's and secretes.

FEATURES:

-Absolute Spawn

-Beautiful medium sized island at spawn

-Single tree to get you started

-Small starter cave system on main island with easy to get to coal

-Whole map is situated in a HUGE and VAST ocean biome

-A few scattered islands with there own hidden surprises

-Easy to access, progressively complex cave/ravine system that will truly test your skills!

-Largest and deepest naturally spawning lava cavern system i have ever seen!

-All cave systems interconnected and accessed via obvious mini ravine on the surface of the main island

-Works beautifully as a blank canvas for an impossible combination of custom survival island, adventure maps!

-No mainland for MILES!

-Quite literally TONS of iron in the caverns, a short way you you will be ignoring the stuff!!

-Gold and diamonds Galore

Customize it to create your own Survival Island Adventure today!! or just play it as is!!!!

Here are some screenies =)

Liked what you see?? Are you a fan of creating custom maps? Imagine the possibilities to be had here!!!

Fan of survival island type maps? put the seed in and ACCEPT THE CHALLANGE!!!

And last but not least...


SEED: -4726406095604882550


I labored for several days hard, generating map after map after map actually looking for this EXACT sort of map. I was so happy with the fruits of my labor i simply HAD to share it with the community as im positive this map will go down in 1.8 history.

Please... Try this seed, Customize it, Re upload it, Talk about it and SPREAD IT!!!!

Kind Regards,

Fralis

(aka Megameatloaf)

(note: I am part way through creating a themed custom adventure map for this very seed, stay tuned for my creation! Alot of quality effort is going into it)

EDIT: Please note i am using Jolicraft texturepack,

How bizzare, ive checked it over and over... it seems to be correct, perhaps spawning differently? i tested it multiple times and always spawned in the same spot

Heres a screenshot with seed shown

UPDATE:

I tested the seed, typed, and copied and pasted from this post. I tried it in survival, in creative, with multiple random world names and leaving it as New World... It always generates the same correct map at the start of this post. Im unsure what to make of your difficulties? maybe try typing it? maybe you copied a space with the number by accident? Did you type it correctly? im sorry to hear that id didnt work.

If anybody else is having issues let me know so i can see and find a solution ASAP

Dude learn to play this game first. Seed is correct and freakin awesome... incredible! I've always wanted a map like this... very small amount of resources and only little islands...
Great job sir! I'd give you diamonds but don't know how.
I think this seed deserves a pin on the forum or somethin... go ahead and post it on: http://www.minecraftseeds.info/
