Quote from Phantom129
What I think really needs work are the generations of mineshafts and strongholds, since they usually get buried in rock or destroyed by ravines. Gets annoying if most of the chests and the end portal are buried.
I'd like to see the strongholds at the surface as well. Having them buried under 20-30 meters of earth/stone is very annoying and nonsensical. As well as being protected from other features, so we don't get portals cut in half.
I know one speculation made by Mojang on why the portal damage was happening was that the chunk in which the portal was physically located didn't get generated on the first pass.
