Wow, you actually read this far. Ok, so here's the deal with this map. A lot of people do not like this map because you spawn in a vast ocean. Depending on your attention span, this may be a problem for you. Those with some forms of ADD must channel their ability in order to cope with this map. Many of them haven't read this far so they will not enjoy themselves.
The map difficulty is set to Hard. Finding land is not easy. Be creative. There are plenty of players who enjoy themselves because they figured out how to get away from spawn and stay away forever.
Where To Find Land
As mentioned above, spawn is an ocean biome. You can pick any direction to find land. But it will take a very long time. It is a good idea to make camp well before you reach land so that if you have any trouble, you won't find yourself at spawn. So make a bed as soon as possible.
Finding land should not be your top priority. Instead, look for cracks in the ocean floor. These cracks may lead to abandoned mines. In abandoned mines you will find wood and cob-webs. 12 cob-webs can be crafted into three wool blocks, which can be used to craft a bed. Sometimes you will find a boat in the middle of the ocean. Take them. They were probably abandoned by a player who gave up.
There are also players who like to help newcomers. But they are not on all the time. Begging for help is annoying, so avoid being needy.
When you find land, remember others are looking for land as well. If you make a base on an island within 3 kilometers of spawn, expect your base to be raided.
It is also best to avoid the cardinal directions. Meaning, if you go North for 1000 blocks, someone's going to find you quite quickly. But if you go slightly East as you travel North, you are a lot less likely to be found.
The most important thing is to pace yourself. Accept the fact that you will not find land right away. It is not just over the horizon. Landfall depends on what direction you travel. Some directions have land closer than others.
