I feel really bad. When I read that, an evil chuckle escaped my throat.
At least you can find your damn house.
Oh, also, it seems to me that there's more ore and redstone and stuffs near lava and in "naturally" formed caves.
Lava is only found between layers 1-10, Diamonds to 17, gold to... 30? Iron to 64, and coal to 120something. I think sea-level is around 64, but it might be higher. Redstone I think shared gold level range.
Basically, if you want to go big or go home, mine 1-7 levels above lava level. And if you're looking for something valuable, dig down. And never straight down!
Well, caves have Adminium (Bedrock) blocks, which are indestructible (redstone is usually found close to these) and mark the floor of the world.
Or sometimes you find a break in the adminium :-P I do not recommend jumping down it. Edited, Sep 30th 2010 8:31am by LockeColeMA
