I've been noticing that everytime I checkout a new seed I always spawn on the southern half of the world (classic style). Not understanding why this is. Also not knowing why it bothers me so much either. ... structures and biomes don't worry me too much, but the spawn point gets to me a bit. Does anybody else have this issue? Does anyone know a seed that spawns on the top half of the map/world? If so, please let me know.
I've looked at hundreds of seeds since tu31 and I don't believe that world spawn was ever in the top half of the map. In fact it seems to be mostly in the same area in the southwest corner, close to the center of the map. Rarely spawn is on the southeast side, also twoard the center of the map. I had two survival worlds prior to tu31, one spawn was all the way twoard the southwest corner, and the other was near the center, on the southern half of the map, don't remember exactly where. I'm not going to claim that it can't happen, but it would seem that the part of the generation algorithm that selects world spawn is heavily skewed twoards positive z and negative x.
So I must report to you that I. Decided to seed hunt a bit this morning... mainly to try and convince a father and son n00bs to game on due to them being unable to locate a village on their seed... large map... which I spent over an hour on trying to locate even a single house, library, church etc. With no avail. So I figured I'd go ahead and use the seed: Hmmm
Mainly thinking (jokingly) that i might get a village or two due to me using the villagers' language.
And low and behold, as soon as I pulled out my map, I spawned at -99/-55! Starting me on the top/ middle of the world. I am quite surprised to tell you the truth. Hit me up sometime if you wanna game. I'm mainly focusing my attention on XBONE right now so if you game on One I'm all in when I'm able to. 360 will have to wait for a little while untill i can snag another year subscription of live. Talk to you later.
