I like that idea. It would be especially helpful for experiencing all the old seeds. (Glacier, anyone?)
If Notch doesn't add it, maybe someone could make a mod with it.

-The Forces of Evil are in need of more members!--There are very few Elves, consider applying as an Elf-
This is the Third Age of this world, full of darkness and trouble. A shadow rises in the East, a nameless whisper, a creeping fear. Rumors spread of the return of the Dark Lord, the one we had hoped had been defeated. He was not.
In the land of Mordor, the Dark Lord Sauron forges his armies and marches upon the kingdom of Gondor. The war is bloody, countless lives are lost. The once shining city of Minas Tirith stands strangely quiet, as smoke rises from Osgiliath. Captain Boromir has held the crossing - but for how long? Even now, all manner of foul beasts pour forth from the Black Gate. Orcs, Goblins, Uruks, Trolls - all thirsty for blood. They will not stop until the White City is wreathed in flames. Gondor is weak and Sauron knows it. It is only a matter of time. Osgiliath cannot hold. The Witch King comes.
To the North, Rohan falls prey to the armies of Isengard. Saruman the betrayer has enslaved the mind of King Theoden. Rohan's armies stand idly by while Uruks pillage and burn. Rohan cumbles, there is no honor left in the world of Men. Rohan and Gondor refuse relations. The noose tightens. Who will come to fight the combined might of Sauron and Saruman? This union of the towers? Dwarves? Elves? All races have seemed to abandoned Men to this fate. Sauron puts all thought towards his Ring, the One Ring. If he should find it, it will be to the ruin of us all. Our world shall fall to darkness, a night unending.
Do you stand with the last of the Free Peoples or will you serve the Forces of Evil? Have you the honor to defend your homes or are you savage enough to serve the Dark Lord?
Check out our trailer!
The Tower of Dark Sorcery, once a proud Gondorian city, Minas Morgul now serves the Dark Lord.
Standing watch over one of the few ways into Mordor, Cirith Ungol houses a company of battle ready Uruks and Orcs.
Osgiliath was once a symbol of Gondor's prosperity but now it lies in ruin. Mordor and Gondor have long fought over this river crossing. Gondor current holds the city but for how long?
Barad-Dur is the great castle of Mordor, home to the Dark Lord Sauron. From his keep, Sauron's gaze sees all. The tower is a physical show of his power, a power that may soon control all.
We have added many memorable locations including Osgiliath, Minas Morgul, Cirith Ungol, Shelob's Lair, Edoras, Helm's Deep, Isengard and many others!
-About the Server-Our goal for this server was to create a true Middle Earth Roleplay experience. We aim to provide a steady stream of events, constant updates and zone expansions as we progress. Below are a few little factoids about our server:
-100% handbuilt map
We used absolutely no Minecraft chunks. We carved, dug and built everything you will see. This means actual mineral veins and actual tactically useful regions.
-Third Age, brought to life
We have brought to life the ending of the Third Age of Middle Earth, made famous by the Lord of the Rings books and movies.
One of our motivations for the creation of this server was the lack of true roleplay servers. We require that all players remain in character at all times, so if you do not enjoy roleplay then this will not be the server for you.
Choose to be a fighter or a farmer. A warrior or archer. Good or evil. We support many races and classes, so something should strike your fancy.
The Third Age is a bloody age. Players can choose to fight for Gondor, Rohan, Isengard or Mordor. The opportunities are endless.
-Requirements and Rules--Act mature
We do not have an age limit but please act like an adult. This is a mature themed server and we expect you to fit into that theme.
-Have some understanding of Tolkien's world
You do not have to be a Tolkien expert to play the server. While we do highly encourage everyone to read Tolkien's masterpieces, seeing the movies is usually adequate. If you hear a word or see something you don't understand the Lord of the Rings wiki is your best friend.
-Use appropriate skin
We only allow the use of theme and race appropriate skins. If you do not know if your skin is appropriate, please ask.
-Stay in character at all times
We want to recreate Middle Earth. To do this we cannot have avatars talking about their favorite corndog. Please let this remain a fantasy, not a free for all chatroom. We have Ventrilo for that.
Men - Good/EvilElf - GoodDwarf - GoodHobbit - GoodOrc - EvilUruk - EvilGoblin - Evil
-Nations and Factions-Nations are official entities that players may join. Players must choose one of the 4 nations to represent.-Gondor-Rohan-Mordor-Isengard
Factions are player created groups that may claim and fight over land for their nation. Factions are formed by gathering a group of other players and applying for official faction status on our forums. Players do not need to be a member of a faction.
-Classes-Classes in MERP are a combination of a combat class and a crafting class. When applying, please choose one combat class and one crafting class. Dual combat or dual crafting classes are not permitted.-Combat-Warrior - Skilled in the use of all melee weapons.Archer - Proficient with a bow and basic melee weapons.
-Crafting-Woodsman - Woodsmen can craft anything that requires wood.Miner - To dig deep and bring up treasure is the way of the Miner. Miners can also work stone.Smith - Smithies craft weapons and armor for the armies of Middle EarthFarmer - Tilled earth is all a farmer needs to be truly happy. A farmer is the backbone of any successful community.
Our website is: merp.enjin.com
We require players to use our custom texture pack. We have a lot of buildings that won't look right without it, so please use it!

Oct 10, 2011Hi, I made this map, with inspiration from SkyBlock, this is my first map too by the way, so don't be too harsh.Posted in: Maps
It's currently in V1.4 and if you find anything unnecessary feel free to complain in the comments. I hope you enjoy, as we worked hard on this. Also, if anyone could make a video series on this, it would be highly appreciated.
#1) No hacking, this means no flymod, no TMI, or any other mod, that gives you an unfair advantage.
#2) YOU MAY NOT play on peaceful.
Everything, isn't as it seems. So be careful of what you break, because it may look the same, but trust me, it isn't.

Sep 22, 2011Seed: "Golem"Posted in: Seeds
Works in: 1.9 pre-releases (all), 1.0 Release candidates (all), and 1.0.0.
Tundra regions are the only biomes in 1.0.0 that have snow, but unfortunately, they're also flat. This seed starts you on the border of Tundra and Extreme Hills, so at least there are a few mountains under snow (since the biomes overlap slightly).
I've seen a lot of snow seeds here, but this is the largest I've seen. It also has some interesting features, such as surface lava in the snow, and chasms on the surface.
Map (shrunk to 1/4 size: 2800x1992):
Mountain structure at -36, -668:
Sand structure at 1308, 801
Snowy chasm at 687,503:
Oct 16, 2011I bought Minecraft back in May this year, and I greatly enjoyed the way terrain formed. It was almost random, but structured at the same time. I liked how the initial spawn point was on sand, normally right next to a body of water. Trees were not packed too closely, mountains were abundant, and most resources could be found without walking a great distance. I was disappointed by 1.8's new terrain generation, and some of my friends are too. All of the biomes were far to expansive and uniform. You were either in a densely packed forest/swamp, or a barren plain/desert. On occasion, you might be in a mountain biome, if you were lucky.Posted in: Suggestions
So I propose that the classic terrain generation used from about Beta 1.2 through 1.7 be included as an option in future versions of Minecraft. Those who want the classic TG can have that option, and those that want the new TG can have that too.
