I'm sure many minecrafters have had this dilemma: the default terrain has just gotten worse through the updates, and now it just looks really messy and strange. Not to mention there is no real replacement for it yet; The world generator tab is really lacking. I think that if we could get a few plugin developers together, we can build something that has better, more extreme mountains, prettier swamps, better plains for building, as well as solve a major issue with the default generator; new versions of minecraft breaking old terrain. We have the technology. We have the man power. We have the passion. We have the pizza. I still haven't hammered out a plan for it, but I have set up a github group, and I am working on a base project to work from. I haven't used github much, so if there is anything I should do, tell me. If you can help in any way, let me know, and I will add you to the organisation. One goal of the project is to have the cleanest code possible, so if somebody could write up some good coding standards, that would be great. Also, I think that it will be very important to discuss the design of the generator, so we will need to find a way to do that. https://github.com/BetterMinecraftGeneratorTeam/The-better-generator-bukkit-plugin If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. For now, I am on skype @ jtjj222. Devs who might be interested (I just picked out the top devs in the wgen catagory): codename_B daddychurchill Jacek @Khoorn mysource @Cayorion escortkeel richie3366 Canis85 @magnificence7 I can't think of anyone else off the top of my head right now, but if you know of someone who could help, tag 'em! I know for me, this will be a great learning experience, and if we can get enough interest in it, it will be epic.
