Default Walking in a winter wonderland

Hi guys

I'm looking at claiming some land in an icy region to try out some cold climate structures.

Can anyone suggest a good spot they may have seen in their travels?

I'm looking for a goo combo of flat and hills, bare and forrested, as well as a large body of frozen water.

Also is lightstone ( Lightstone - Minepedia - The Minecraft Wiki! ) available and how would I get it? I'm looking for a light source that wont melt snow and ice, to provide lighting beyond redstone bits and pieces.

best idea is to look at the map, find a spot you like that isn't taken, warp to the nearest point and make your way there.

Lightstone - you'd have to ask a friendly admin about that in game

Thanks. I'll look into that.

mmm, I just read up on lighting and light stone and see that while it lights up under water it is actually vert hot and will melt a larger area like lava, and will also set wood alight, so I'm back to redstone stuff for illumination.

Light stone will melt ice/snow but not wood.

Don't bother with icy structures etc till snow, ice and snowing are all fixed.

Explore the map and make a claim, just avoid my stake all the way out east (you can see it on the map) it's awaiting the fixes as well and then it will be mmog's winter wonderland.

Sounds like a plan.

I have some other projects I'll try first.

What are the problems with the wintery content?

Water won't freeze over time, and snow and snowballs aren't collectible/craftable. It also doesn't snow in the multiplayer.

Snow doesn't regrow over time either. I have a winter map in single player and in one spot there is this weird green area in the middle of all the snow. Eventually I figured out that were where a creeper tried to explode me a day before
