I would also like to make a similar request for a generator that makes a world of floating islands. I've seen planetoids, but I'd like ones with flat tops, like you see sometimes in minecraft. But bigger.

I remember, back in the day, where this was included with Miecraft--from having a Hellworld, to a forest world, the floating island world--I don't know when or why that was taken out, but I sure do miss it.
You can make floating islands in MCEdit. Here's how:
1. Make a tower as tall as you want the top of the island to be.
2. Use the brush tool, set to round, to create a large ball with its center at the top of the tower.
3. Delete the top half of the ball, and what's left of the tower.
If you don't feel up to it, I could make the island for you. Just provide me with your save file with the tower(s) already built and the dimensions of the island(s).
Or you could look into an SMP plugin called Runecraft. It has a rune called Faith which creates floating islands as large as 24 blocks wide.
Whilst you're very nice, Contrapulator, MCEdit floating islands are not what I'm looking for. I mean an entire world of floating islands, like the older minecraft version generated, not just one sole floating island. That's what we need a generator for.
I mean, come on. Over 700 views--don't you think this is an in-demand subject? Floating Island Generator, go!
Kinder still, my friend. Apoun investigation, I learned from the Skylands thread and from testing of my own, that floating islands would not be possible. At least, not with an open sky beneath them, due to some silly lighting issue.
But that still doesn't satisfy me. I could deal with a generator like the Planetoid one, with both an Open sky and a Water-below option--the former for whenever the lighting issue is fixed.
I don't know how many of you still check this but I don't understand the lighting "issue" Biosphere did it, the only problem was the domes and the circular shapes, I hated it. But, Biosphere by Risugami has proven that it is indeed possible and I would like someone to step up and tell me it is impossible after viewing his mod. Anyways, I wish I knew how to script, I'd be willing to learn. Otherwise I'd make a world generator myself. Skylands is the closest to what I'm looking for but its not a world generator, therefore I can't use it in Creative mode unless I have a third-party program. Anyways, if anyone's found a legit generator let me know, please. :biggrin.gif:
My Idea: This could be a world type, like superflat or large biomes. When generated, you would get a bunch of floating islands, about 5-15 blocks apart, ranging from 7 blocks in diamater to 25. They could be kidney, circle, or blob shaped. They would spawn with all the usual ores, and things like trees, caves, villages (I would like to see that), and lakes.
