Spawn and Version
Version: XBL 1.1.1 (equiv Beta 1.7.3)
A holdover from last week's mathematical bent, this seed name is the decimal version (rounded to the 10th decimal) of the quasi-famous irrational number known as the Golden Ratio. To believers, the Golden Ratio appears in the measurements of and defines the pleasant esthetic of everything from art to geology to architecture and everything in between. Its appearance in the pentagram has sealed its status in the world of mysticism. At the risk of giving credence to this hokum, it also makes for a great Minecraft seed.
This seed has the right proportions to earn the label "premium" as far as I'm concerned. The caves in this thing are intense and deep. As you might expect, this is partially a result of the tall mountains that cover whole quadrants of the map. Between the two, you're going to spend most of your time in shade, fighting off zombies and spiders for real estate. Getting around is not easy, but if you prefer your Minecraft more subterranean, then this is the seed for you.

As caves are particularly difficult to photograph and I rarely travel with torches while doing cartography, the only shot I have that was anything to write home about is this self-illuminated lava fall cave. It may be difficult to tell, but the water heads to the back and then cascades downward to even deeper parts of the cave.
