First, the map I’ve been playing for years, the very first map I ever played in vanilla Minecraft. I hadn’t played this map in a long time but recently started playing it again. There are glitches in the chunk/biome transitions from the version upgrades that were less-than-graceful, and I like the character it adds (sheer cliff faces, etc):

And some screenshots, first just the kind of random stuff that makes the worlds of Minecraft so interesting:
…and two screenshots from our Minecraft U creative server:
I just wrote up a summary of our year at Minecraft U if you’re interested in that sort of thing.
