This world was created with the intention of making a challenging environment for only the most hardcore minecraft players. The world was set to hard, and players spawned randomly in a large flat world. The mob cap was increased, and the coordinates were hidden.
The only way to find supplies would be to wander aimlessly for days, trying to find villages in which resources could be acquired. Saplings were vital for portable wood sources, while lava was useful for making cobblestone generators. If you wanted wool for a bed, string from killed spiders was a good bet.
Few players survived for long, but those that did, were able to build up large homes with efficient sources of otherwise rare items. Sadly, this world was decommissioned after -----, due to ----. Perhaps one day, it will make a return and once again challenge those brave enough to take it on.
