Probably one of many, but I'd like to discuss biome sizes. I believe, as a rule, most biomes are way too small. It just doesn't make sense. I'm playing in a nice SMP right now and we have a sweet dynamic map.
When you look at it, it shows just how silly small most biomes are. Within a minecraft day, you could walk through a taiga, a forest, a rainforest, a desert, another desert, and then into another snow biome. It makes me wish that biomes were generated more on a "continent style" system, where large, individual land masses were broken up into decent sized chunks of biome. Thoughts?
Ah, really? That's awesome. I wouldn't need to re-seed in order for that to affect new chunks, would I?
Yeah you would. It's coming as a World Option, one of those things that you have to change when making a new world. Although I suppose it would be possible to use something like NBTedit to change the world properties directly.

yea i tried snapshot it wasnt much big i hope it will though and i hope they fix biomes like jungle next to winter biome or desert with cactus next to snowy biome so unlodical and not real it should be more gradual and biomes should operate on a temperture basis like in real life
Technically, you would, because it's a new world type called Large Biomes.
However, Large Biomes is just a scaled up version of the normal world, so the seed would be the same and the terrain would be similar. So, yes and no.
Alright, cause everyone on the server would obviously want to keep all of their creations, but everyone is definitely down with getting bigger biomes. I'll have to do some research. In my old single player I "lost" the level, but recovered it. It kept all of the discovered world and just re-seeded around it. Something like that would be the ideal solution.
