The origin of the panorama image used in the Minecraft main menu from beta version 1.8.1, released in September 2011, has remained a mystery until now.

In less than 24 hours after launching the panorama application; a volunteer host for [email protected], in a sheer stroke of luck, found the world seed, 25357015387625.
This was approximately 93 days of processing time at a total of 54.5 exaFLOPs compressed into the last 24 hours.

The specific host which located the seed belongs to the user vanos0512.
Thank you to the 137 users who contributed 181 hosts with 231 GPUs over the last 24 hours. You all accomplished this.



Here are the details if you want to generate this world for yourself:
Minecraft version: Beta 1.7
Either of these two valid world seeds: 2151901553968352745 or 8091867987493326313
Co-ordinates: x60, y76, z-67

See the video released by EarthComputer announcing the finding.

What happens to all of those WUs pending validation? With the server cancelling WUs en masse, will we be losing a ton of credit?

i'd guess so, given it also cancelled WUs that were being worked on.
not particularly polite from an arbitrary boinc crunchers viewpoint.
though all the work from then onwards was no longer necessary, it doesn't reflect the resource people put in to it.

I'd complained about this sort of behaviour previously in a PM to chip, he replied on 1st July...

"Acknowledged, we'll take this into account for next time."

Oh shucks, I missed getting to contribute to that... then again, I don't think anybody expected to find it in a day...

So, how about looking for a water world?

All the dangling jobs should be credited now, sorry for not getting this sorted sooner, the trigger was pulled on the cleanup tasks a little early.

My panorama WUs are credited now. But for all pending Multichunk-WUs the credit is lost!

For example the following Results:
https://minecraftathome.com/minecrafthome/result.php?resultid=2757877
https://minecraftathome.com/minecrafthome/result.php?resultid=2771437
https://minecraftathome.com/minecrafthome/result.php?resultid=2772677

The link in the results to the Workunits is broken.
