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.

 

I don't know how this works, but isn't the main world, cave exploring free anyhow? And isn't the wild/nether different seeds or does it not work that way?

Mainly just curious how it all works, I completely agree the seed should be kept secret if that is the case though.

I agree with ray. Definitely. I'd also like to know if exploring caves and things are okay on the main map, I don't know either! In any case, you could also use the seed to cheat for slimes.

Technically you can still explore caves, you just cant do any mining/resource gathering on the main map. But the main reason isn't so much cave diving to get diamonds, it's knowing the locations of all the strongholds, witch huts, villages, desert/jungle temples, slime chunks, dungeons, etc.

 

So, it's just best to keep it a secret, even without resource gathering it can still be abused to all-hell.

Makes more sense now, I wasn't thinking about the other stuff.

Here is a 1000x1000 and 2500x2500 maps of the seed "Rayvolution" Seems a possible?

 

 

 

Hmm the 10000k version of this map and seed has too much water in it. PNG = 22MB so wont bother uploading

 

Also... As much as I would love to help in the find for a seed... I'm away for the next week.. :(

These confuse me because they aren't 10k sized. So we are just picking by the center? How do we know the rest isn't all water? Sorry if I'm missing something!

They are 10k by 10k :) 5 k in each direction from the center (I made the same mistake yesterday!)

Here one that is seriously being considered, due to many factors..

 

- Good rail station locations (Almost all of them are in different biomes)

- Good overall mix of biomes

- Huge Misa

- Nice sized, clustered togeter snow area

- Mushroom Island

- Not too much water, but large enough bodies of water for the water dwellers.

 

(Click here for the full sized super-huge cartograph render, 70+ mb!!, Keep in mind 1.6+ blocks will render black in this link.)

There's a program called Amidst. Give it a seed and a MC version and it will give you one level in 3 seconds . And it's a huge map.
