Just a quick pencil-whipped idea that I might come back and edit into a more professional design depending on the feedback I get, and if I missed any obvious ones, please feel to punch my profile image on your computer screen as hard as possible...

The main idea is a new type server, Elemental Survival, where the main objective is to survive as long as possible, avoiding the numerous and plentiful disasters that wreck the land and spoil its resources...

Natural Disasters:
>Hurricanes- A torrential downpour of rain with the howling gale ripping trees out of the ground, causing massive damage and flooding to the landscape, and reduce the amount of life in the area.
>Tsunami- A giant, 40 block tall tidal wave that comes in to wash away all life, causing massive damage along the coasts and flooding in depression areas as well as collapsing cave systems below the wave of water.
>Earthquake- Giant quivers in the world's crust that splinter the land and generate some areas to rise and other to fall...
>Twisters- Violent winds that collide together to form a dreaded beast that leaves nothing undisturbed beneath its wrath.
>Meteor Shower- Heaven's fury fully realized as fallen body's of cosmic masterpieces rain down creating massive craters and setting hellfire to the land.
>Volcanic Eruptions- Violents bursts of lava from the peaks of mountains that drench the world in fire and leave nothing unscathed.
>Solar Flare- Massive waves of heat and radiation beat the land violently, scarring it and destroying all life on the surface forcing the inhabitants to seek refuge below the ground.
>Blizzard- Brought forth from the world of old when ice was the dominant ruler, now come back to avenge itself by blazing the landscape with frostfire.
>Landslides- Be wary of rocks bearing too much weight, for a single drop of rain may set those colossals into motion destroying all that stands before them.
>Gnomes- All I have to say on this is; God help us all...
>Plagues- Beware of the black death, carried by the rats of the seas, always searching for their next victims...

To be continued...?

I like the idea but earthquakes should make new ravines, giant cracks in the ground, but would be a pain if it destroyed your house, but would add to the survivalness of things :P

Well the whole point is a hardcore survival experience in block form, which would include evacuation. This means you would be on the move constantly so you would have no need for a permanent home, just temporary quick shelters to spend the night in because it wouldn't do you very well to take a few hours to build your house, and suddenly, whilst inside the house, a meteor struck and blows you up.

This isn't a map to live in, this is a map you have to survive in.

edit: fixed typo

This would add a great experience to Minecraft, just after you've built the most amazing city, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake occurs and your city is destroyed, forcing you to rebuild. I have no idea why, but destruction entertains me.

I hope notch takes this into consideration, or a mod developer creates this.
