    Looks like 500+ blocks away from 0,0,0 and not the spawn point.

    I used the tool to find the coordinates for my seed.

    Any tips on how to find it from there if it is not directly down? I have tried a transparent texture pack, but I am still not able to pick it out of all the other clutter. Maybe someone could recommend another texture pack or give some other tips.

    I reset the demo and started it over. The chest is there. There is a total of 22 gun powder in the chest.

    Sorry about the wild goose chase. I did not consider it being a demo addition of some sort. But it looks like it is there are load and not a sort of explosion glitch.

    I just entered the seed and loaded the map again. It seems the same as when I first started, but the chest is not there. There are also a few other things missing. When I first started there was a sign next to a double chest that had some items to start with. I imagine that PC Mag added that. So there are a number of things different.

    Maybe something happened when I switched from the demo to the full version.

    I did not mean to cause anyone any trouble. Just trying to figure it out.


    CreeperNH - I do live that close to work 1.4 mi according to Google Maps.

    Is this your very first world?
    Chunk errors can take data from deleted or old worlds and stick it into a new one.


    Yes. It is my first world.

    I am the only player in the household and have not tried anything multi player yet.

    I downloaded the PCGamer demo last week, and purchased the game after my 90 minutes were up.

    I posted this because I wanted to know if there were other hidden chests I could be looking for.


    PS. Just mined around the chest and there is nothing else there. Only dirt and stone.

    Also, this is only on my home computer. I cannot access this map if I sign in online from my work computer.

    No mods. I have only been playing a week and have not yet researched how to get them to work.

    I realize that having this as my first post is strange, but it was the only thing to date that I have not been able to find an answer to on the forum.

    Now that I know it is not common I wish I would have better recorded the format the gun powder was in. But as I recall it was 3-4 item slots in the chest. Varying from 3-18+ in each slot. The total being in the high 20's. Again, I wish I had more detail, but at the time I was excited to find it since I have had little luck gathering it myself (I have not tried any traps yet). In fact, I started digging in that specific area after a Creeper blew a crater on the shore and water was flowing down into it.

    I decided to square off the hole and cover it back up as a side storage area when I came across the chest.

    No spawner nearby that I have seen, although I have not opened up the area behind the chest. There are no moss blocks revealed.

    I tried a search on the forum but did not find anything mentioning this.

    Yesterday I found a chest, buried in the sand near my spawn point, that had 30+ pieces of gunpowder in it.

    Anyone else found one of these? I have not found a mention of it anywhere in the wiki. If it is there can someone direct me?
