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 --
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.
-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
