Have you even wanted to explore a Minecraft world without facing constant lag because the map is being generated? A good way to avoid this is by pre-generating your world. This can also be useful if you’re hosting a Minecraft server and want to provide your visitors with a map of the world.

So how do we do this? Well, it’s actually fairly simple. The first thing we need to do is to download a program called “Minecraft Land Generator”, which is available here: https://sites.google.com/site/minecraftlandgenerator/home/download. What this program does is it generates terrain by constantly changing the spawn point of a Minecraft Server.

Note: The main download didn’t work for me (the zip file was corrupted). If you also encounter this problem, you can simply download the “Source” zip file (https://github.com/Morlok8k/MinecraftLandGenerator/archive/master.zip). You’ll find a working, compiled version of Minecraft Land Generator in the “zip” subfolder.

Once you’ve downloaded and extracted Minecraft Land Generator, you’ll want to click on “MLG_Initial_Setup_Windows.cmd”. This will prepare the program.

Once this is done, we’re ready to create a map. Click on “Run_MLG_Windows.cmd” and enter the desired world size.

Note: If you want to change the seed of your world, simply change the seed specified in the “server.properties” file that was created when you ran  “MLG_Initial_Setup_Windows.cmd”. Now, you simply need to wait for the program to finish creating your world!
