We have a new world on our 1.0 minecraft server in which we just created a nether portal.
We started exploring the nether to gather some materials, but didn't manage to find a nether fortress or structures to get some nether brick.
I was thinking of deleting the nether folder of the world and let the server regenerate it from scratch, hoping for more luck during the generation process.
However, before doing such, that question came to my mind : 'Is the nether dimension tied to the world seed ?'.
If so, deleting the world may be useless, and we need to explore further to find a nether fortress.
Does anyone have information on how the alternative dimensions are generated relative to the world seed ?
