This deep ocean survival island sets you on the sandy edge of a barren island. On the surface there’s just about nothing to help you get your world going (there are sheep in 1.8 actually). Beyond the occasional squid swimming by in the water, there is some good news on the horizon. There are visible islands within swimming distance. And, you can see that some at least have trees to get wood from.
We mined under the surface of the spawn point. The good news: there are some basic materials you can rely on under the surface. Digging down you’ll find iron right under the surface. Further down, you’ll fall into a cave (complete with bats). On its surface you’ll find more iron as well as plenty of coal. We saw some lapis lazuli, too, but not much to speak of beyond that. We kept our exploration pretty close to where we dug straight down from, so there is likely much, much more of value in the cave system.
