Subdivide the world into regions?

I propose we divide the server world into regions. I am compelled to do this after Tudor and I decided to call the vicinity of Pasanauri-Buntington-Negusville the Northern Region. It'd then be more helpful to locate places first by their region, and then their relative position within the region (or with other prominent features in the region e.g. villages or towns) rather than direction from Unterganger City alone, like what we're currently doing with the temples.

UMS regions

Here's my proposed divisions of the server world. I decided to differentiate between Inner (inside the chunk border) and Outer regions. There's a lot of ambiguity in the general western half of the Outer region, as well as a bit of land in the east. I hope we can agree on this divisions, and if possible settle on the eastern ambiguity (the western part can wait, I think ;) )

Agreed with the region division plan. It's time that the North Region existed both in our minds and on paper :P

What's with the missing chunk of land in the outer northwest region?

Not yet generated.

So I've flown through the outer northwest region just for the sake of generating the missing chunk, and I found some good stuff: O15nUZw.png

There's a lot of diorite and granite hidden underground if you dig deep enough. Good place for mining.

EDIT: But of course that place is so far away, few would want to explore it...

Not like anyone would want to mine those when everyone's in creative. :P

On another note, I have learned about IRL granite, diorite and andesite. IRL they would constitute the majority of the continental crust in almost every part of the world, and not within pockets like in MC. otoh I figure minecraft "stone" is based on Portland stone, which can be found only in Portland, England.

Kinda surprising since the developers of Minecraft aren't exactly English.

It's not that they're not English that's the problem. They're instead not geologists. ;)

EDIT: It's also a shame that those so-called Geology mods for Minecraft are similarly not developed by someone familiar with geology. I'd kill to see true-to-nature rock formations in Minecraft.
