Just started playing the newest update and couldn't find iron anywhere on the overworld (which was especially hard after being spawned into mostly ocean). I finally started digging down after an hour of exploring (finding 6 emeralds and 0 iron to mine them) to see what caves were like and found all completely flooded. That was extremely disappointing since it's early game and I can't spelunk like that. It took another two hours to find a cave and eventually got 30 iron (took three hours), but I noticed there was no coal around at all anymore and I never ran into lava... Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but it seems like the new ore ratios/spawn ranges are really bad and force excessive amounts of time to search just for what used to be basic materials. ATM I'm not enjoying this and will probably drop Minecraft for a decent while, at least until I see news of these issues being changed.
