EDIT:
Also thought I should point out, even though I'm letting the public find a seed, after careful thought I kind of want to still keep the seed private. Reason being, I want the seed to be kept secret, because using programs (like Amidst) it's super easy to cheat, and I'd rather no one have access to the seed.

 

I think from here on out, you should hide the seed ID when you post, and if we agree on your map, then give me and only me the seed. Then at least it limits the knowledge of the actual seed down to 2 people, and those 2 people (myself and the finder of the seed) will just agree never to use it in single player, or with any program like amidst to cheat.

 

The next vote is up (note, that the old votes are still open).

 

We need a seed! Everyone is invited to find one they like. I use Cartograph G to render the maps, but you can use whatever you want. We just need a visual of the entire map OUT TO 10k by 10k. I will try to find a way to make this process easier.

 

Our map requirements are:

- Must be "Normal" generation

- Must have a good mix of all the biomes

- 0,0 Must not be a snow-based, sand-based, jungle, mountain, water or any other extreme terrain biome. Plains biome is ideal.

- SixtyCity will be a 600x600 circle, so try to guestimate if that will fit at 0,0

- All portal locations (see rail map) must be clear and on land.

- Needs at least 1 big body of water for our water builders.

 

Here is a fully setup copy of MLG, simply just unzip it and run Run_MLG_Windows.cmd and set it to run a 10000 x 10000 map.

 

These guys take a while to generate, so the more people seed searching, the better.

 

If you find a good one, post a pic of the entire map. :P

 

MLG:

http://sixtygig.com/...ndGenerator.rar

 

Cartograph G: (Wont render all the blocks, since it's outdated, but it gets the job done well enough)

http://duponline.net..._10_25_bins.rar

 

If MLG does not launch:

- BACKUP minecraft_server.jar in the MLG folder

- Try running MLG_Initial_Setup_Windows.cmd

- Put the server jar back in it's place

Hmmm I did a 10k map and it took 4hrs. My PC not brand new but not THAT old. Current;y rendering the map and its taking just as long if not longer :) Will see if Cartograph is quicker for me.

 

Also it's larger biomes so assume its going to be useless :)

I figured out a way to run MLG multiple times. If you make a copy of MLG, open each server's .properties and change the port you can run multiple copies at once. It works out better, even if each of them take longer, because MLG is a single-core program, so if you have a multi-core processor (and just about everyone does now a days) overall you'll get more maps done faster. :D

 

I also just started generating 5k maps, and if the 5k area is good I throw them back in the generator and push them out to 10k.

 

also, since 0,0 needs to be city-ideal, another option would be to generate a bunch of 1k maps until you find a good center, then push it out to 5k or 10k.

Or the city could go into the largest plain available for it. Would the city NEED to be central? Wish me luck, I'm diving into the map generation lake.

I don't know how to do this map render stuff, but I will offer up a World Seed album from Imgur that I used when I was playing with 1.7 seeds and looking for particular biomes.  There's 300 seeds in the album with a legend that tells you what the colours signify and a lot of them have the 0,0 coordinates indicated.  The maps are rendered -3000 x 3000, but if you guys find one one like you can always expand it to your preferences.

 

SEEDS!!

The issue with that gorgeous seed is that there is not much snow, and I know I am not the only one who would like a snow biome. (At least I think I am not?) I think at least 3 of us want to build in snow and a larger map means we can more easily claim an entire biome as our own. 

 

In that scenario of entire biome claiming, that there might not be enough snow. But if it is, I call the one in the middle!!!!

All of those maps looks so nice... Wow! I guess when you think of it, all of the biomes are evenly represented but since there are so many variants of green, I kind of glob them all together. 

 

I think, snow aside, the first one is better because there is less water in the middle. That black stuff is water, right?
