Just a note for Moderators and Admin, this file is for Minecraft Bedrock Edition, not Java/PC Edition as the other variants are here on Planet Minecraft, making it an original file. Unlike the 1-4 MB Anvil File Format files posted by other users years ago here on Planet Minecraft, I took the time to uncover 40-50MB of chunks on Java Edition of this world, before using MCC Tool Chest PE to convert the world to Bedrock Edition, preserving more of the world on Bedrock Edition the way it was in Minecraft Java Edition Beta 1.7.3.

World Name: Java Beta 1.7.3 404
Version Created in: Minecraft Java Edition Beta 1.7.3
Compatible with: Minecraft Bedrock Edition 1.8 and Higher
Has Been in Creative/Cheats Activated?: No (You can earn achievements on this map.)


This world is the famous 404 seed from Minecraft Beta 1.7.3 converted over to Minecraft Bedrock Edition 1.8 for you all to enjoy. Not just is there the famous '404 Challenge' to perform on the gravel Beach, I traveled along the horizonal axis while on Minecraft Java Edition before using MCC Tool Chest PE to convert the world to Bedrock to uncover and preserve these amazing old chunks that the current versions of Minecraft will not generate.

Basically, you can travel and see the way Minecraft used to be; less biomes but more amazing terrain generation. Larger Beaches and hills, Gravel Beaches, natural overhangs, etc. Returning the memories of classic Minecraft, bringing them back for you all to experience again.

I had to use MCC Tool Chest PE to restore some of the chunk's original biomes to protect the gravel beach from prematurely triggering from updates by the biome's formation of ice blocks due to the wrong biome. There is also a Bonus Chest for those who want to perform the 404 Challenge with supplies. Cut the time out of having to gather supplies for this variant of the challenge :) .

Conversion Bugs

-Minecraft Java Edition Release 1.0's biomes stuck to this world before conversion due to having to open the world in Minecraft Java Edition 1.2.1 before conversion to allow conversion to happen (Worlds generated in Minecraft 1.0 and back used MCRegion file format. Minecraft converted these worlds over to Anvil format in Java Edition 1.2 and above)
