Minecraft update expands world customization: floating islands return
Minecraft's terrain generator is about to start producing some much more interesting results.
Minecraft is a game all about freedom and customization, so the upcoming 1.8 update--which introduces new customization options for Minecraft's terrain generator--should be an especially welcome one.
The update provides players with new options when creating a world. There are now 16 sliders that dictate the terrain that is to be generated in addition to options for enabling and disabling things like lava oceans and water lakes.
A release date for the 1.8 update has not yet been announced.
