The best Minecraft seeds

Subscribe to PCGamesN on YouTube

What are the best Minecraft seeds? Minecraft seeds are codes that the game uses to generate worlds for you; worlds full of interesting landscapes and key landmarks ripe for exploration. They cover everything from jaw-dropping vistas and landscapes to thrilling dungeons filled to bursting-point with loot.

Your job is simple, pick the one you want to play around in. All you have to do to get a seed up and running is grab the digits and place them into the seed field when you’re next creating a Minecraft world. The game will do all the heavy lifting, leaving you to explore and create to your heart’s content.

For all the latest PC gaming news, be sure to head over to our homepage.

Regardless of whether you’re a professional miner or someone about to load up their first world, there’s something you can't control in Minecraft: the terrain itself. Whilst your mind may be brimming with possibilities, all too frequently you’ll spawn in a bland, uninspiring world full of flat grassland and the odd chicken. Hardly the canvas for your masterpiece. 

Hence this piece, a complete collection of the best Minecraft seeds, from the inspiring to the functional and everything in between.

(Before we start it’s important to note that the end results of a seed are entirely dependent on what version of Minecraft you are running. A brilliant seed in version 1.6 could be something upsettingly bland in version 1.7. To help you out, we’ve put the latest version each seed works with in brackets after the seed code. Set your Minecraft launcher to this version for the correct results.)

Minecraft update 111 vex

Woodland Mansions are Minecraft's latest, exciting generated structure, but they're not exactly easy to track down. This seed works with the 1.11 Exploration Update and spawns you close to one these behemoth structures. Be warned though: they house some formidable mobs.

-969535336 (1.9)

Minecraft seeds 1.9

If bizarre, inexplicable geological formations are your jam, look no further than this 1.9 Minecraft seed. While this seed won’t produce masses of hidden treasures, it will create a column of rising stone pillars complete with cascading waterfalls and a herd of sheep at its peak. Creative mode most definitely advised.

-7261691309120837834 (1.9)

Best Minecraft seeds leg break island

Affectionately titled ‘leg-break island’, this seed will produce a single slab of mountain jutting impressively out of the sea. It’s up you what to do with this geological wonder, but trying to get to the top of it is probably a good start.

Survival islands are much more pleasant when you don’t actually need to worry about surviving, which is why this seed is so wonderful. Not only is it much larger than the average survival island, it also comes with a bounty of helpful natural resources such as a small forest, a lava lake and an offshore mushroom biome.

-3500229128833691836 (1.9)

Best Minecraft seeds

This seed will drop you in the middle of a wintery forest where you can find two cosy igloos, one of which harbours a secret basement. You’ll find the secret basement under a rug - enter with caution however as inside there’s a small workshop with a zombie villager lying in wait. Get rid of the undead resident and you’ll find a compact, underground base with a brewery and plenty of storage; ideal for starting out in a snowy biome.

-6185261765285097501 (1.9)

Minecraft seeds

This seed sells itself on an interesting premise: two small islands, one with a wolf on it and the other with a sheep. From that point on it’s up to the player how this survival story unfolds - do you harvest your only mammalian friends for resources and meat or do you do everything possible to ensure that your unconventional companions are safe?

1480351183376464763 (1.9)

Minecraft seeds

Mysterious, simple and totally unique, this seed will drop you into a world featuring a simple cottage with a lone resident, The Librarian. Whatever resulted in this guy’s living situation is any guess, but building his humble hut into an enormous fortress is endlessly satisfying. The Librarian’s house is surrounded by horses and greenery too, so there’s more to this niche seed than meets the eye.

Temples. They’re great. But most seeds seem to restrict them to jungles and deserts. Just because that’s how famed adventurer Indiana Jones liked his temples, doesn’t mean that’s how the rest of us like ‘em. That’s why this seed is here, offering a change of location for your exploring: underwater. With a challenging selection of enemies to defeat and plenty of secrets to uncover, this seed is for the nautically inclined.

Spawning a magnificent array of prissy clip-clops (horses) on the outskirt of a huge desert village, this seed offers equestrian types the ideal starting point for their Minecraft adventure. Inside the village there are chests packed with great loot like diamond horse armour, gold ingots, saddles and obsidian - everything you need to ride off into the sunset atop your noble steed.

7692505625803617061 (1.8)

best minecraft seeds

Spawning in this seed will place you on a large flat plain surrounded on all sides by magnificent mountains. Calling to mind some of the finest moments from old Westerns, this seed is tailor-made for anyone looking to introduce a little prairie living to their next Minecraft world.

Taking some hefty cues from Utah’s Bryce Canyon National Park, this mesa-styled landscape is anything but ideal for budding architects. What this seed does boast is mile upon mile of miner’s paradise. For nature lovers the seed will also generate a glorious flower forest, making for quite a contrast of biomes.

Where monolithic natural structures are concerned, no real-world creation compares. This seed’s main feature is a mountain consisting of two arching peaks. An internal waterfall finishes off this Minecraft marvel with the water feature it deserves. The archway makes the perfect sheltered spot for a villainous, Bond-inspired hidden base.

686298914 (1.8.8)

Minecraft seed 686298914

As soon as you spawn in this seed you’ll be by a village containing a blacksmith’s treasure chest (see inside for diamonds, swords, and obsidian). But that’s just the start of the loot-heavy seed, that spawns a world featuring four desert temples, six villages, two dungeons, and a stronghold. You’ll certainly want to visit some of these, so head to x: (-973) y: (93) z: (127) for the stronghold, x: (-328) y: (82) z: (560) for the largest of the six villages, and x: (-149) y: (68) z: (343) for a dungeon home to a golden apple. 

5387364523423380365 (1.8.8)

Minecraft seed 5387364523423380365

If instant gratification is what you need, then this seed will give you that. Provided you’re looking for instant mushrooms, that is. Within meters of your spawn location, you’ll find a sprawling island filled with giant mushrooms and herds of red cows.

For the absolute best survival island seed I have EVER found, load up the old vanilla Minecraft 1.5.2 and enter "speluncher" in the world seed. One clue, when you spawn, swim west.

That's right, I said swim. I dare you to play this one with no cheats.

Try ChriceAdamante.

It will spawn you right in a forest biome, with plains and mountains not far from spawn, and there is also a village just about 100 blocks from spawn, with a blacksmith with gold, iron, iron chestplates, obsidian, and more. Perfect for those who want a survival seed that is not too difficult but not too OP.
