Doh! That wasn't intentional.

There's a new version just uploaded (v1.1b) which allows the 20 digit seeds. Thanks for pointing that out.

(I was using using parseLong() instead of parseUnsignedLong()).

I started on Valleys, but it's an interesting mapgen in that it adjusts the humidity depending on the landscape, which then adjusts the biomes (other mapgens don't do that). Amidstest can handle that part, but proper Valleys support would also imply changing the biome distribution stats provided by the Voronoi diagram, depending on whether the current mapgen is Valleys, which is a bit more work. So Valleys went on the backburner.

(Knowing that somebody actually wants Valleys support does help though - I don't think anyone had even downloaded v1.1 until I posted it on reddit)

Thanks it fixed the problem for me, I found another bug: "Copy Seed" (Ctrl+C) in a menu gives different result after pasting:
Example: 14105561135541706857, after doing "Copy Seed" and pasting it in notepad gives -4341182938167844759

FWIW both -4341182938167844759 and 14105561135541706857 should bring up the same world in Amidstest, as they are two different ways of representing the same 64 bits of seed as a number. But yeah, the Copy Seed command should return the unsigned version, as that's what everything/everyone is used to.
