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 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.
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.
