For the love of James Lipton, people, I finally found it. My very first TU9 legendary seed. This thing is AMAZING. Let's start at The End and work our way backwards. The End requires only the building of a minor bridge over to the battlefield and you're there. Very easy. Then we have the Nether. It's a lone nether fortress completely surrounded by lava and unattached to any terrain. It's stunning.

The underground I didn't really have a lot of time to get into because the topside is so stunning.

So here it is. The topside. The map shows you a long, boomerang-shaped island covered in mountains. And I mean covered. There's a primary forest in the northeast and southeast corners that are small enough not to be a nuisance but big enough to supply all of your building supplies. Then, there's a really nice, flat desert due north. Finally, everything else is craggy, scarry, shady super-rocks. Cliffs. Waterfalls pouring into the lake. Some small and medium sized floaters. The rest is just Y=120 nightmare crags. Buttes, ranges, and basins galore. The shaded areas are stunning and there are plenty of them -- as evidenced by the photos above.

This is an ABSOLUTE must play.
