Post 1.8 – Customized Terrain?

I’m just wondering if there are any plans to use the customized terrain feature when generating new 1.8 terrain? Or perhaps this won’t be possible unless it’s a brand new world? I just ask because I’ve seen (and been playing on) some really nice presets that add an extra depth to the landscape and I think if it were possible without resetting the map it would make for an interesting area to build and live in.

I’m just assuming more terrain will be generated for 1.8, but will there be? I was just assuming because of the water temples, we won’t get them without new terrain.

I’ve been testing out the following preset more than the others, it works really well: http://worldpresets.com/?post_type=world_preset&p=469

Only downside is setting biome size down to 5 or 4 from the preset’s default 6 ruins it a little, it doesn’t feel as big.

I suspect this won’t be practical, but just thought I’d ask anyway to know for sure if it would be considered (or even possible to do).

The water monuments actually have retro generation, so under the right conditions they can spawn in existing gen.

Why would we set the biome size down to 4/5? The server runs large biomes normally.

There is still lots of unexplored land in our huge world. Lots of areas for a water temple to spawn.

The server has been on normal biomes since 1.7, I believe.

If that’s the case that’s perfect. Thread redundant.

I’m glad they’ve fixed that issue, it was annoying in previous updates where new features would only be added if you started a new world. Now players can continue with their current worlds without having to start over from scratch again.

I had to edit the nbt tags of our level.dat to change it from large biomes to normal gen when the gen changed last update. I gotta say tho, those screenshots are amazing.

The lake one especially looks amazing. Would love to do a build around that one.
