The harder-than-404 challenge of Minecraft 1.8.1
« on: September 25, 2011, 11:43:45 am »
My one friend was messing around with some seeds for 1.8(.1), and he came across "mooshroom". This seed generates a world that, when you spawn, you find yourself on a decent sized island. You are completely surrounded by water. There are other, smaller islands, but none quite as large as the main one that you spawn on.

There is one tree. Two cave entrances. Very little to no wildlife. My challenge to you, users of Omnimaga who play Minecraft, is to see how long you can last in survival mode before you die/get killed.

Good luck ;)

Spoiler For Tip:
It may be worth your while to travel to the island directly north of the main island.

Once played "Survival Island" with a couple of people from the Minecraft forums (hosting the map from my laptop). They were busy mining and slaying, I just built a nice house and farm with all the stuff they brought up from the mines. I wonder if I still have that save somewhere :q

How does surviving long enough to live indefinitely based on the resources I can collect rank? :P

Hmm... Well, as long as you get at least one sapling from the tree and its children, then I suppose you can live indefeintely...

Prove it, though :P

If you had asked me yesterday...

Fine, I'll survive again >.>

On a side note,
404 was harder because you have mobs constantly attacking you. There's a seed ("Desert" I believe) where you get an even smaller island and no trees. It's an interesting challenge to survive (shortcut hint: explore the waters around the island. You'll save a lot of time).

Wait... asked you yesterday? Did you know about this seed before I posted it? :O

And yeah, I know this one doesn't have as many mobs, but still, it's fun lol.

Yeah, I saw someone mention it on Youtube as a seed to see the new Mooshrooms in 1.9 and I tried it out. Needless to say I was surprised to find myself on a deserted island.

EDIT: Hm, looks like I haven't done the "mooshroom" seed before. It's slightly different from that other seed that I can't seem to find again.

Lolz. I tried it and I spawned somewhere on the mainland with a bunch of pine trees. It's really easy so far.
