After generating a new creative world (large biomes) I went around looking for an extreme hills biome. I did this by tping randomly in x and z directions in multiples of 10,000 (or possibly 100,000).

My problem is, I died, and hadn't reset spawn. I've opened my map in Minutor, but couldn't find it easily. How on earth do I find the castle I just built?

Should post links or a how-to guide – Wijagels Oct 18 '12 at 18:49

I don't know whether the program you're using has this functionality, but you should filter your map for certain block types, such as glass or wood. This only spawns in a select few areas, so it will reduce the number of places you need look to find the castle again. If you have a block you only have in the castle, it will be easier to find your castle.

That's not the issue at all, it's that the viewport is too small to view things that sparsely spread out over such a large area. – fredley Oct 18 '12 at 17:37
