I want to make a base map that is just an ocean. But every time I do it is is just flat and ugly (and I drown since I can't reach the surface)
Ocean level is normally 62 right? I want too see some ocean ravines and temples ... basically the oceans you get with a normal random seed. I plan to copy my maps onto this ocean one at a time too make a huge continent like system. Thanks.
Yah that is what I did. Regular Ocean is best. Deep ocean makes a messed up world.
Now I am tyring ot cut and past my 56k chunk map on it with MCedit. Such a pain.
Another option would be to just increase the biome size number to something like 48 or even 64 to make all the biomes including oceans enormous. The obvious downside would be difficulty of traveling to other biomes.
