I dont even have minecraft yet but ive been watching hours of videos and i believe that the worst place to spawn would be the middle of a huge desert, for a few reasons. One: you have to walk very far distances to even find a useful biome. Two: if it turns to dark before you are even able to make a shelter, you're screwed. Three: because the desert is so flat, it will spawn tons of creatures when it is night. then again, spawning in the middle of an ocean would definitely be worse.
The worst one ever is from a survival seed I saw posted. Island in the middle of the ocean. It spawned 1 tree for the person in the post, but for me it did not spawn even one. Ocean biome -> no animals. No animals, no wood, no tools -> no food.
I swam for about 5-10 minutes in one direction and never did find a landmass. I quit that seed.
As far as lagging goes, I hate the forest biomes the most. I have to use fast graphics there to even get a decent response rate. otherwise I'm down in the 4-5 fps rate (sometimes worse). The optifine patches do help a bit.
The worst spawn biome is definately the ocean. Even on an island, there are likely to be no trees. Tall grass, but no trees. You can survive on the tall grass's wheat. (dont ask me how youmake what out of grass) but you need a hoe. And for a hoe, you need wood. And for wood, you need trees, which are not there.
OMG how can you guys hate on jungles? theyre the best biome in my opinion. why? plenty of wood, easy shelter (treehouses mobs dont spawn on leaves), and its just generally awesome... am i missing something? xP
Being caught in the middle of an ocean, just kinda dropping deep into water. I'd prefer a jungle biome, I only tend to spawn in oceans nowadays and it's very material hard and I usually end up playing survival island without any trees.
If anyone does not put Ocean, it's because they have never spawned in the middle of an Ocean biome. I have nothing against those biomes, but it does stink when you spend at least a whole day and night trying to find land. One positive though, no creepers! lol
Outside of ocean, I'd say tiaga/snow. Desert is lacking in trees, but at least the viewing area is fairly clear so you can see your surroundings. Something about the snow and forest that makes it more difficult to get your bearings and figure out where you want to go.
Sea. Yeah, no land, just an endless ocean and you just happen to spawn in the middle of it.
For example: Because i have a slow computer, it takes ages to generate a world, so in the meantime i go to grab a cookie or something.
And when i come back, Yay! I'm in the bottom of an ocean, drowning! Gotta love when that happens.
Oh god, hate ocean biome spawning, they need to remove that or something. That, and island spawning, as in a 5x5 island in the middle of a huge ocean.
