Custom map seeds

by Phitherek_ » Wed Aug 29, 2012 22:23

I heard, that in MC there was a practice to use custom map seeds to generate interesting maps and recently I found out there is an option on MT too. If your seed generated an interesting/nice/whatever map, post your seed here (you can read this from debuginfo (F5)).

How to use them:
1. In minetest.conf, add line fixed_map_seed = <copied_seed>.
2. Create a new world - it will create a map with exactly that seed.
3. Revert to previous settings for you to be able to generate random maps again.

I hope that you like this idea ;).

I really hate to bump such an old topic (I guess it's not THAT old, but still), but using your seed, I found several more nyan cats. Your world is full of them! Thanks for sharing it!

Amusing my notes are any good, there are also cats at these coordinates:

-19, -33, 229
-66, -64, 257
45, -180, 216
-190, -187, 334
-366, -87, 32
-428, -84, -7
-280, -73, 30
573, -67, -200

I like your cat best though. Yours is in the sky, where they presumably belong. Mine are all underground.

Is there a flat(ish) world seed anyone knows of?

There is none. You will need to edit the mgv6 parameters in minetest_folder\worlds\your_world\map_meta.txt

Example (also possible to add those settings to minetest.conf)

The mapseed does not match the client seed, right? because on F5 the seed is always different, on singleplayer like server... .
