I am curious what others think of things like MC edit and going in to alter a biome to be better for things..
My first opinion/thought is that its no diffrnet then using a in game mod to do it.. just faster and simpler?
or is it that its external to the game that makes it more cheaty?
is a map program that can look into caves bad because you can view it outside of the game a cheat or is it a tool to get information better?
I made 2 edits to my world and feel they are ok because it allowed 1 major headache to be fixed and allowed better crops to happen for another! ( had i planned better i would have put myself in a swap area/had one nearby to grow crops in.. so i changed that.
the other is a more drastic one but it should solve a major headach i am having with a mob spawner... namely that it works but there are alot of caves unlit.. so this filter goes in and puts torches all over !
( i could have used a terriformer flatification for this because it would have filled in the spaces with dirt, but felt this was faster/easier)
I can see this being too much.. IE being able to edit willy nilly ruins some of the game!
but sparingly used it can make things a bit better?
