Minecraft developers Mojang have been dangling its world customization in front of players like a digital carrot on string for a while, but finally, today, we’ve been given a look at the terrain generator coming with Minecraft 1.8.

There are 16 sliders which can be used to affect various aspects of Minecraft’s terrain generator, but you can also type in values directly. You also have complete control over things like the sea level and what structures you want to generate.

“We’ve also supplied a set of seven presets that we think players will find interesting, including a world made of water up to the top of the map, and the return of floating islands,” said the developer.

Check out the preview video below.
