Minecraft’s new terrain generator is insanely flexible

Minecraft 1.8

By on April 23, 2014 at 8:55 am

With Minecraft 1.8 nearly upon us, Mojang have just quietly gone ahead and released a video on YouTube overnight showing off the power and flexibility of the new terrain generator. Not only does it have more sliders than a spaceship control panel, but it’s also pre-loaded with a bunch of preset nutso worlds, as well as the ability to copy and paste your parameters so you can share it with friends.

Take a look in the video below. Dang.

There’s more options in that menu then the average RPG has for character creation.

Looks….interesting. If maybe a little complex to start with.

 

Kids be looking at this going… Whats Noise XD

 

What’s noise?

 

I remember a mod I used back in beta that did something like this. It lagged like a bitch, and was pretty unstable at the best of times.

I’ve been wanting someone to redo it for ages, but I never would have guessed that Mojang would officially implement it. Keen to play around with this. It would be great to get some friends and set off into a brave new world.

 

Hmmm, I love minecraft updates as much as the next guy/gal but wouldn’t it be better if they spent more time fixing little bugs or adding new features that cant be done with mods?
Anyway, some insanely awesome worlds can now be created by the average user so that’s cool.
