FROM: Kathi G.
SUBJECT: World Generation With Henrik Kniberg

Hello Jonny, Hello Joel, 

I just finished listening to your recent episode and I really enjoyed it. So interesting to hear from Henrik on the development side of things. 

Regarding the thought about making Minecraft terrain variable in the vanilla game with data packs – I had a similar thought on it, but I thought more to expanding the world options in the generation setting.

For example:

  • Giving a builder of large projects the option to have a world generated mountain terrain with different level platous that provide a nice accessible building space. Like a “Bob Ross’s Panorama Dream.” 
  • Or something that does the opposite, generating amplified terrain, but less shattered and more like “the Alpine dream”. 
  • Or let you combine “old surface + new caves”, or “new mountains + old underground”. All with the new world hight, etc. 

I know this means more options and UI but as a User Experience Designer myself I think it would be very possible and satisfying to choose from.

What are your thoughts about it? 

I’m such a big fan of your show. Pixlriffs videos were my welcome guide to the Minecraft universe as the pandemic started in March 2020. I also like Joel’s build style a lot. You both are awesome, thanks for entertaining us listeners so brilliantly!

Kindest regards,
