With a village surrounded by hundreds of good quality trees, this is an excellent starting seed. You won’t be short of wood, and the houses provided excellent shelter until you’ve amassed enough materials to start building your own fortress.
Most recommended seeds generally spawn you close to a temple or village, but this seed is a bit different. It spawns you next to nothing of use. If you’re looking for a little challenge in your survival, then this seed is for you. Whilst it has little in the form of loot, it does spawn you in interesting, scenic biomes that offer plenty of different locates to explore close to spawn. Mushroom forests, swamp zones, and extreme hills await.
As soon as you spawn in this seed, you’ll be right on top of a village that’s situated in a field filled with horses. Why explore like a peasant when you can gallop around like a knight?

A solid starting point for the long haul adventure, there’s five villages and a couple of temples close to spawn and the riverbanks. The loot you’ll find here will aid you setting up camp, and there’s plenty of livestock to make friends with / butcher.
If you’re looking to slaughter the Ender Dragon as quickly as possible, this seed will spawn you right on top of a stronghold containing a Nether Portal. See the chunky bit of beach on the left? Simply dive down from there, and you’ll soon hit the roof of the Stronghold. It’s pretty dark down there, so you may need some glow stones to help your search.
Having a pet is one of the most happy and rewarding things you can do in Minecraft, and a fluffy little bunny rabbit is most certainly the kind of pet you want hopping around at your ankles. This seed will spawn you in a village full to bursting with rabbits.
Just a short little trek from spawn and you’ll discover this mega mountain region. The peak breaches cloud level, and bursting from its slopes are water and lava falls. It’s also topped with a wooded area, making it both a scenic climb and a solid resource provider.
Right by where you spawn in this seed is a deep ravine cut into the ground. Take a peek and you’ll find immediately what you’re here for: gold. There’s a good few blocks of gold ore right at the surface, so you can gather it in practically no time at all.
Along the join between the savannah and desert biomes in this seed is a desert village with some desirable loot. Between the chests in the houses and the blacksmith’s shop you’ll find 26 gold ingots, 3 emeralds, 2 diamonds, 6 iron ingots, iron leggings, and a saddle. Not a bad starter kit!
A mesa, plains, and desert biome all meet at an intersection marked by a temple for you to explore in this seed. Even better, you’ll find the temple at the bank of a river where some giant squids hang out, as well as cows in the fields of the plains biome next door.
One for the Minecraft mountaineer, this seed will spawn you at cloud level on this amazing mountain structure. It goes much higher into the sky than the clouds, and its flatter sections are home to some savanna biome-style trees. The whole mountain makes an island, with some really cool geography to explore.
If you’ve absolutely got to see it all, and you’re on a strict time limit, then this seed is for you. It contains all of Minecraft’s various biomes, and they’re packed into a reasonable 2km². One afternoon stroll and you’ll know everything about landmass identification.

Minecraft can feel a little brown and green all too often. Inject some colour into your eyes with this seed, which will drop your right in the middle of an ocean filled with mushroom-sprouting islands. Those bright red domes should cheer you right up, but if that doesn’t do the trick perhaps the herds of cows will instead.
With 15 diamonds right at the spawn location, this is a loot paradise seed. You’ll find the diamonds split into chests in the two desert temples you’ll soon find, and a third temple hides away some treasures too. In the first of the temples you’ll come across you can also find some diamond horse armour, ensuring your steed will be well protected.
A great seed if you’re in need of diamonds quick. You’ll spawn quite close to two desert temples which can be raided for treasures, and also fairly close to spawn are two NPC villages, one which has a blacksmiths. One of the temples contains 9 diamonds and 2 emeralds.
