I have picked up most of the sand in the desert on the island where I have built myself a home and I am now wondering if it's possible in anyway to "grow" back the desert. I want to have sand spread so I can pick it up again.

Once you dig out all the sand, it will never respawn. You are guaranteed to have at least 100 sand tiles on a map (any map having less is rejected and regenerated).

Here are the minimum amounts of tiles for each level:

  • Overworld:
    • Rock: 100
    • Sand: 100
    • Grass: 100
    • Tree: 100
    • Stairs Down: 2
    • Stairs Up: 2 (As determined by the Sky)
  • Cave level -1:
    • Rock: 100
    • Dirt: 100
    • Iron: 20
    • Stairs Down: 2
    • Stairs Up: 2 (As determined by the Overworld)
  • Cave level -2:
    • Rock: 100
    • Dirt: 100
    • Gold: 20
    • Stairs Down: 2
    • Stairs Up: 2 (As determined by the Cave Level -1)
  • Cave level -3:
    • Rock: 100
    • Dirt: 100
    • Gem: 20
    • Stairs Up: 2 (As determined by the Overworld)
  • Sky
    • Cloud: 2000
    • Stairs Down: 2

About the regenerated thing.. Really?? It doesnt just say 'Add more sand' but 'Lets start over again!' ?? –  James Mar 19 '12 at 22:32
    
Yeah. I don't know what reasoning Notch had, but I'm betting since regenerating isn't that expensive compared to balancing out all the necessary tiles (Sand isn't the only tile tat has a minimum). I'll edit in all the minimum amounts of tiles –  3Doubloons Mar 20 '12 at 1:23
