from youtube (you have to see if this is legit) said:
On the new minecraft update theres a generator seed. Type in there 'AWESOME' if you want a cool icy map. Type 'glacier' to get some floating land and stuff. Type '404' to get a gravelly area. Type 'Chuck Norris' to get a desert. Give this a thumbs up to help people find cool spawn points.

I can verify the 404 one. DIG THE GRAVEL. You know you want to.

My flatmate did Jurassic Park, it seemed pretty cool. That seed thing's been around since... 1.4 I think. Is that right?

I'm pretty sure it's been around since at least 1.3, that's the version I first played and it was around then.

By the way, I remember a similar seed thing in Age of Empires II in map creation. How exactly does something like this work? They probably didn't make tens of thousands of different maps and assigned each one a different number.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Nope. First, we need to look at random number generation...

One of the simplest ways to generate random numbers is to say
code
next = a*prev + b % some_big_number

This will generate a sequence of numbers when you make repeated calls to it (if you put it in a function, say). The choice of initial number obviously can have great effect on where the series goes, so if you allow the user to change that then you can have great variation for free! And actually an easy way for people to share maps without the associated memory/bandwidth costs. The difficulty lies in finding a good one.

I see. So they use a random number generator with the initial number set to your seed number to determine the sequence of random numbers that somehow determines how the map looks.
And I'm guessing these special seeds (404, Chuck Norris, Glacier) were incorporated as separate cases.

By the way, what's that b % big_number, won't that equal b (provided the b is an int)?
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Well I believe notch uses a perlin noise function which requires some sequence of random numbers to generate the terrain. I don't think they were special cases, I'm willing to accept them as coincidences.

Oops, my bracketing was wrong. big_number should be really large and the whole expression should be modded. It's called a modular linear congruential generator if you want to look it up. I even have some code that I might be bothered to look up.

¡ATTENCION!
Freebuild Server is now (temporarily) the
SUPER HOSTILE MAPS COLLECTION SERVER
mc.superjer.com:25566

Basically, this is a series of custom survival maps. The goal is to not die (too much) and find all the hidden treasure chests around the island to collect each wool color.

Minecraft update 1.7!
Added two kinds of pistons and shears.
Pistons push blocks in the direction they are facing when they get electricity and go back when the electricity stops.
Sticky pistons push blocks in the direction they are facing when they get electricity and go back when the electricity stops but also pulls the block it pushed backwards.
Shears are now the only way of getting wool, punching sheeps does nothing. This is because Mojang are working on making creatures more lasting in the world (they don't despawn as quickly), which makes their work of making the wool on the sheep grow back actually worth while.

Pistons can be used for making secret doors such as this:

Yes, I figured this out, built it and uploaded it. That gives me bragging rights!

What's the problem? Sounds like Notch solved it for you.
