Not if I can help it.
2. I miss the gravel beaches.
3. Most biomes are fine in size -- it can be a bit of a pain to find the type I want to live in, but that's alright. What upsets me is that the oceans are ridiculously huge, uninteresting, and common, so I always get stuck on a continent without any of the biomes I like. Shrink the goddamn oceans.
4. Ice Desert biome NEEDS to be added back in.
5. I like river bottoms the way they are now, but the sea bottom is extremely unappealing. homogeneous dirt would do just fine.
6. Clay generation was perfectly fine in 1.7.3. I'd like it changed back to that.
7. What happened to the sandstone below beaches? right now, the sand on beaches and ocean bottoms just sits directly on top of the dirt. The only place to find natural sandstone is deserts.
Mostly moved on. May check back a few times a year.
I don't think this is a very good Video to use as an example because...
A: uses a texture pack, the many color changes can not be seen
B: Seems like the creator is purposely bringing attention to the old world generator by moving in crazy motions and going more in depth, where in the present world generator he glides borringly across the landscape. Your eye will naturally go toward the moving part of teh video.
C: Both landscapes actually look pretty nice and alot alike, and doesn't actually compare very much. All I notice in this detail lacking video is more sand in the old world generator :sleep.gif:
