(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Minecraft’s developers have given fans a little sneak peek, via YouTube video, on what they can expect to see in the upcoming 1.08 update.
According to a report from PCGamer, the update will add a terrain generator that allows players to build their own landscapes from scratch.
“There are 16 sliders which can be used to affect various aspects of Minecraft’s terrain generator, but you can also type in values directly. You also have complete control over things like the sea level and what structures you want to generate,” says the video’s description.
“We’ve also supplied a set of seven presets that we think players will find interesting, including a world made of water up to the top of the map, and the return of floating islands.”
The presets that Mojang gives in the terrain generator include Water World, Caver’s Delight, Mountain Madness, and Caves of Chaos.
Minecraft’s 1.08 update is expected to be released sometime in May.
Below is the teaser video of the terrain generator.
