AMIDST - Strongholds, Village, Biome, Etc. Finder
There have been some questions about the Mooshroom biome map picture so I thought I would post an overview of the program AMIDST which is the program I used to generate that map.
AMIDST is a third party program that generates biome and structure maps for the game Minecraft. The maps are displayed as color maps, with each color representing a different biome. The biomes are quite accurate since the program uses the same code as the Minecraft biome generator. The programs works for maps for 1.7.2 and below.
You can generate a map in three ways. You can use a random seed, input a seed or select an existing map. The Mooshrom map that I have previously posted was found using the random seed mode. By generating maps for different seeds, you can get a nice overview of a seed and easily determine if the map meets your needs in the game.
In addition to biomes, AMIDST has different layers that can be enabled to show different structures on the map. Currently there are 8 different layers. There is a grid overlay, spawn point location, village locations, stronghold locations, temple/witch hut locations, player icon, nether fortress locations and slime chunk map. The structure locations may not be 100% accurate since there is some variance in the generation routines. However, they will be close to the map locations if not on the actual spot.
I have found this program to be a great tool for investigating different seeds. Seed hunting is a fun pastime and by generating a biome and structure map using AMIDST you can quickly see whether the seed you have found is a dud, or a definite keeper.
Disclaimer: I am in no way connected to the development of AMIDST. I am just a user of the program. Any problems you may have with the program should be directed to the developers.
