so i wanted to make a hardcore world with all the 1.6 content and i came across an awesome seed that i figured i'd share with u all.
seed: not a snow biome
map type: large biomes
desc: it puts u in the middle of a giant plains area with plenty of resources and several horses. the surrounding area has at least 3 npc villages that i've found so far as well as a desert temple and abandoned mines. there's a nearby swamp for plenty of slimes as well as a witch hut that can be easily turned into a farm. overall in my short time exploring it's turned out to be an awesome seed and thought u all might like to check it out.
lemme know how it turns out for you
edit: found a 2nd desert temple containing a saddle and a 4th npc village
edit2: found a 3rd desert temple this one had a zombie spawner connected to the loot room, contains 3 cat music discs diamond horse armor and gold horse armor + a second saddle and a name tag
