This is really cool, MineAtlas is a biome map of your Minecraft world seed. It also works as a village finder, slime finder, ocean monument finder and other things finder. MineAtlas is more preferable than AMIDST because you can quickly open it without installing anything. Perfect!
Here’s some quick info about MineAtlas:
What does the map show?
Biomes. The colour of the map corresponds to the biome at that point, e.g. blue for ocean. You can hover or click to get the biome name displayed on the info panel. What you build doesn’t effect the biome so won’t show up.
Shading is an indication of how hilly the area is – it doesn’t correspond to the exact hills in the game as I can’t do that quickly enough at this scale.
The markers show where things like temples are, most of them are turned off by default so as to not accidentally spoil your game. If you created a map from a level.dat save then a player icon will track you as you play.
What the hell is level.dat and where do I find it?
- Windows: %appdata%\roaming\.minecraft\saves
- Mac: /Users/[USER]/Library/Application Support/minecraft/saves
- Linux: ~/.minecraft/saves
What is a seed?
How do I find out what my seed is?
The map is wrong! You suck!
- You added a space at the end of a seed, making it different
- Even though you are running Minecraft 1.8 your terrain might have been generated in a previous version if you have an old world.
- Your world is set to large biomes which MineAtlas doesn’t support. Yet…
Does it work for xbox/ps/Colecovision?
