Version: XBL 1.4 (TU9) (no PC equiv)


There is a series of books about two brothers, Frank and Joe, who solve various mysteries together called The Hardy Boys. They were actually written by multiple authors, but published under a single nom de plume: Franklin W. Dixon. The books have been published off and on since 1927 and feature every kind of crime imaginable. It's a very Cabot Cove affair where their home town only has like 1,000 people in it and yet the murder rate is the highest per capita of any city on the earth.


There's only really the one spot for cool mountains. Really, this seed is all about a deep, thick, lush forest that covers 80% of the map -- including some of the snow covered areas. There's also some tall, thin spires if you're into that sort of thing.

  1. Do I type the seed in with the spaces? I tried it and it didn't generate the same world but we really want to play this one.

  2. No spaces. Type it in exactly as you see it in the title of this post: hardyboys

  3. It's my understanding that all worlds have an ender portal. It's finding it that's the problem. I searched for this one and came up blank.
