Water generates above sea level as part of ocean monument generation


    • Confirmation Status:


      What I expected to happen was...
      Lowering the Sea Level setting would not allow water source blocks to generate above the setting's value, including at the new Ocean Monuments. I expected that if I lowered the Sea Level to 1 then I would see an Ocean Monument with no water on the inside or outside. If I lowered the Sea Level to some value in the middle of the Ocean Monument, then the water would only come up as far as the Sea Level I set, and there would be no water inside or outside the Ocean Monument above that y-value.

      What actually happened was...
      Water still generated inside and outside the Ocean Monument as a massive block in an otherwise completely dry ocean. See attached screenshot.

      How to reproduce:

      1. Create a world and locate an Ocean Monument.
      2. Write down your coordinates and exit that world.
      3. Re-create the world (to get the same seed), but before creating, change the World Type to Customized and set the Sea Level to 1.
      4. Create the new world and /tp to the coordinates you wrote down from Step 2.
      5. You will see the Ocean Monument surrounded by water in an otherwise completely dry ocean.

      Here were the settings I used:

      Seed 203371283943414296
      Location /tp 150 60 1290 0 30
      Biome Ocean (see note below)

      Note: I took advantage of this other setting on the Basic Settings screen to help me find an Ocean Monument. The seed and location above will not produce a Ocean Monument if you do not also change the Biome setting to "Ocean".
