Okay, I know I've been inactive for quite a bit, and my old posts back in 2011-2014... well, they sucked. But I'm back now, and I made an awesome little preset for Minecraft 1.8+. I suppose it could be used on 1.7, but don't blame me if it faults out and corrupts something. (It was created in 1.8.7).
Anyways, It's called "Simply Impossible Survival" and it makes survival IMPOSSIBLE. No, seriously. If you think you can survive it, make a video on it and see how long it takes you to die. My personal record is 14 minutes before a skeleton knocked me into lava. See if you can beat that! Anyway, you probably want the preset, so here it is:
And there it is. I know I probably should have put it in a spoiler, but meh. If you want to make a video of this preset, please give credit or post a link to this thread somewhere in the video or description. Also, if you tell me the link to your video, I'll be sure to thumbs-up it and subscribe to your channel! Thanks for trying out my preset!
Well, that was a good run. I didn't expect to die any time soon when I did, so I hadn't yet taken pictures. I was lucky enough to spawn near a waterfall, the only water source this map setting doesn't get rid of. That could be done by making it very flat, by the way. I found seeds and a tree, then I managed to redirect the waterfall to my farm.
With food stabilized, I started digging for ores, as I had noticed they were simply very rare in the preset, not nonexistant. Some extensive digging gave me time to think about the odds of finding anything, and I decided I'd be better off making a mob grinder and getting my iron from zombies. Before that, though, I decided to wall off and light up an area around my farm so I'd have room to work at night safely.
The lack of caves would make darkroom grinders very effective during the day. I dug out a room and split the waterfall so that it would flow through it and I could do a traditional dark room grinder. I set up the flow to go out of the cliff and drop monsters to a safe location underground near my failed mine. I was standing under the transport flow that went out of the ciff, lining up my drop point, and then I thought to myself, "Gee, I've been looking straight up for a while, I should check to see if any monsters are around"
Yes, there was a monster around. Creeper right in front of me. Classic.
Double-check your walls before you work at night, kids.

Am i a survival master or is this a joke?
This is easier than anything i have ever played i have a farm house with windows
Hunger is a bit of a pinch but ya! i play a ton and i have gone for a couple real life days so far
I am a survival master haha!
Still have not died i think my profile pic explains how well im haha
Found dungeon with 2 wheat, nametag, 2 iron, three string (Now a Fishing Rod), bucket, gunpowder and a cat music disc
i have not lost one heart yet, my hunger is making me get worried tho
Edit: have not found one animal yet, waiting for crops to grow so i am staying still as possible to not depleate my hunger!
(side note: i wish mojang added spears and you put two sticks on top of one another then wood,stone,iron,gold or diamond then you could throw the spear and it could go like 15 blocks far and there was no draw back wait)
Edit: Waiting for crops still.... four and half food bars are gone (side note: mojang should add cooked_bread such as you get bread but then cook it and its the same look but a bitt brown-er)
Edit: put the difficulty to hard mode kind of scary i feel so lonley on this island.... no animals, no monsters seen yet.... but at the same time i feel like im being watched
Edit: (side note: weird dream last night.. i was inside minecraft as steve and then this guy i knew him but in reallife didnt know him i saw him in game dream but i dont remeber him i hear his voise thats the only thing i remeber he said to me: I'll be watching! i then woke up scared like i had a nightmare weird or what? i also know his name Bill) in game is become ing harder because i cant move or i will lose my hunger bars. so i am just waiting day and night for these dreadful crops. Blimey this is steadly becoming harder
Edit: I found a load of coal, its the cave that has the dungeon the dungeon is right on the surfase and right next to my house i have not explored the rest of the cave
Edit: Made a peice of bread and expanded the farm, I'm still hungry tho i finishes exploring the cave and a zombie litteraly took down half my health and scared the living daylights out of me i then turned around killed it in two swipes of my sword
Edit: I never have hunger down because of my dear fishing rod and my crops!!!
Edit: I saw water particals that a fish was swiming to my fishing rod hook then i pulled out what was at the end... guess what it was..... it swam to the hook.... a stick. my dear dear stick....
This preset does not have any caves, dungeons, water oceans, or water lakes. If you're finding those things or any worthwhile amount of ores, you didn't enter the preset correctly.
I tried again, and again met an untimely end from a surprise creeper. But this time I forgot to set it to Hardcore, and I was able to go back and take pictures and keep playing. I attached a picture of what looked like when I died. The waterfall on the right also flows into the hill, running a dark room mob grinder. It works wonderfully during the day.
