For quite some time, as I improved my Minecraft world, the map looked something like this :
I eventually got around to making a boat to get back and forth between the swamps to the northwest, and the ocean monument excavation to the southeast. And I decided to find out how big the ocean was.
Oceans in Minecraft are not the globe-bestriding colossi you expect from planet Earth. I was pretty sure they would end at some point, making them actually “Ocean Lakes”, and I think I was right.
Biome variety now stands at :
- Roofed Forest
- Stone Beach
- Extreme Hills
- Forest (Regular)
- Birch Forest
- Mega Taiga
So I’m still looking for the big three – Jungle, Mooshrooms, and Mesa.
I managed to find a Woodland Mansion, and went in to investigate. One of the Illagers was inside, and despite my plain iron sword and Level – 30 enchanted armor, he cleaned my clock very quickly. Stuff lost (nothing irreplaceable) and a new respect for the Vindicator.
I’m thinking I’ll carve a road through the Extreme hills, and bridge over the ocean, to make a connection with the village in the west, then move on with a road from there.
