With a seed that hearkens back to real-time strategy games, this "archipelago"-style ice plains map offers condensed biomes with quicker access to resources. Food remains scarce; however, players can take advantage of rivers' missing ice blocks to fish. Try catching one of the rabbits scurrying about, too.
Conserving resources in this biome is essential. Consider taking up residence in the igloo located north of the spawn point (coordinates: -172, -443).
Tip: Defend your home by placing a pumpkin on top of two snow blocks to create a Snow Golem!
