Say again please? I don't understand what you plan to achieve by your sarcasm, but you seem to fail to see the point. The lack of variety exists in the mountain biome that we currently have. The mountains in the previous terrain generator was never meant to be realistic, but it did give a sort of variety that everyone loved and appreciated.
Understand that in this case, that the previous "realistic" terrain was far more interesting and unique in terms of generation than the terrain gen we have now. And have you not played Beta 1.7.3? The terrain wasn't entirely mountainous; that would be ridiculous! It's sort of terrain that we used have then that we want, not a world that's one big mountain range.
But would you really sacrifice variety and the unique topographical features of the old mountain gen, just for the fact that Minecraft is not a realistic game? In this case, I and many others would rather have the old mountains. You don't seem to get it but we are asking for variety too, in this case, with the mountainous terrain!
Sorry, I often get so damn frustrated by people using completely baseless arguments that I resort to sarcasm. The problem is that the sarcasm I use tends to just be their arguments, but slightly exaggerated. To me, it's amusing because what they say makes no bloody sense - to others, I probably seem like an insane person who changes their opinion every other page.
In short; I'm on your side - it's just that my sarcasm is a little...off.
