    I don't think this should have been removed.
    Waaaaay back, people were protesting against any block that wasn't a cube or rectangular prism, such as stairs. Yet Mojang added them anyway and nowadays nobody's complaining about it.
    Following that came the rise of HD texturepacks. Instead of limiting what people could use, they added support for packs higher than 16x16.

    When it comes down to it Minecraft is what people make it. Creativity is what keeps people coming back.

    I still avidly use a 16x16 texturepack, and I'm not a real fan of anything higher. I personally don't believe it fits in well with the playstyle, but that doesn't mean I think they should be disabled. Same goes for this feature; I don't think I would use this for anything other than testing it out, especially not actual gameplay, but there still may be some who want it that way. Sure, I agree it doesn't fit in with what they originally intended, but that's merely an opinion, and as long as it's not forced upon anyone, I don't see why they don't keep the availability of it.

    posted a message on Lava Ocean
    Behold the Lava Ocean!



    This hasn't stopped the villagers move in and make a life here. Dense villages span across the vast oceans offering food and tradable items. Blacksmith houses contain chests with unobtainable items such as diamonds. There are also rare Desert Temples which contain other goodies for those with the aptitude to climb the high tower they were created upon.

    I thought this would make an interesting survival experience or a lets play or something along those lines, possibly if given a certain set of items at the beginning to add more variety to it. Villages do not naturally spawn on top of anything but sand (for desert villages, grass for others), so normally if a regular superflat world was made with just lava, there would be no villages. This works by setting the biome to desert with one layer of sand underneath 3 lava layers. The sand falls away and leaves the sandstone roads and houses floating over the open lava ocean.

    For this reason, this means when you first load it up, expect a lot of lag until all the sand around you has fallen. it is recommended that you create this world with Creative turned on until the sand has settled; to avoid spawning in the lava. Either that or try out your luck with different seeds until you find a place on a village house or pathway. With a decent computer it shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.

    Anyway, copy and the following into your superflat preset code box, and enjoy!

    2;7,49,3x11,12;2;biome_1,village(distance=9 size=10),decoration

    And I know, it's not exactly a seed as such, so sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I didn't see a section devoted to such a thing anywhere else. If there isn't a place for posts similar to this, then the whole section should be updated to include flatland preset codes, I'm sure that a few of you have some cool ones too :P

    Cool mod :]
    Could you make it so certain items float and certain items sink? because it would make more sense if leaves and most items floated whereas harder stuff like stone and obsidian still sunk.
    +1 for awesomeness either way.

    Props for updating to 1.0, but, if you don't mind me asking, why did you make an entirely new thread for it?

    Uhh, bit dull, poor sound, poor graphics; the guy barely got hurt.

    I want to hear more info on a minecraft update rather than stuff like this >_>

    The only reason this got in here is because it was made by someone in the Curse Network. Don't deny it.
