I play Minecraft on the Xbox. I'm a bit of a resource hoarder. I'm just wondering if I need to be.
I know that there are a lot of resources in the world, but I also know that the world is of a limited size (currently 864 x 864) - thus there is a limit to the amount of resources that one can collect.
Is there an a way to predict how many of the valuable, non-renewable resources (specifically iron, gold and diamond) there are in the world? Yes, I realize this would vary greatly depending on the numbers of each biome that generates with a world (a dominately ocean world would likely have fewer resources).
Note: Currently iron is not renewable
- there are no iron golems
- it is not a drop (even a rare one) by any mob
- trading has not been implemented
