Make sure you have ‘Large Biomes’ selected when you use this seed, as without it you’ll find a completely different world. And you wouldn’t want to miss this, which has a fantastic mushroom biome and a hills biome right next to each other, with you spawning right on the border between the two.
Sprint off to your right from spawn and you’ll find a blacksmith’s shop stocked with the perfect starter kit: iron leggings, iron chestplate, an iron sword, a bunch of apples, and even three diamonds! You’ve not done any work yet and you’re already fully kitted out for action. But there’s more! Look out from the village and you’ll see a desert temple, which is packed full of chests containing gold, iron, and diamonds. A superb starting point.

As you spawn into Dossier you want to turn around immediately and head backwards. You’ll see a village, but that’s not what we’re here for. A little way off the coastline you’ll see a perfectly flat rectangle building just sitting in the ocean. Break in, and you’ll find an End Portal. No more do you need to contend with strongholds; just travel right to The End from the safety of an underwater bunker.
A solid collection of adventuring areas appear within this seed, with no less than four temples to raid, a village to settle in, and an underground stronghold to unearth. The temples are home to a small collection of gold and diamonds for the precious item collector.
This seed draws up everything you need to play Survival Island without the need to download a map. A patch of dirt, a tree, and nothing else but ocean is generated by Sprite. With a bit of imagination, you can work with these limited resources to survive for a surprising amount of time.
Double Village (1.6.4)
One for the archaeologist, Double Village spawns you in near a village and temple in a desert biome. So far, so normal seed. But the village and temple are actually mostly buried in the sand, and require excavating from the landscape to reveal their architectural wonders.
How fitting that Mojang - the company that keeps on giving - would put their name to a seed that provides as if it were the Minecraft Diamond Lottery. A fully stocked area of diamonds, gold, and iron await, but keep an eye out for the torrents of lava that run dangerously close to prime mining real-estate.
A truly superb mountain biome, but you’ll need to travel a little from spawn to find it. You’ll start on a tiny island out to sea, but just keep heading straight until you hit the cliff faces. Head up, and you’ll find a massive biome filled with exceptional mountain designs. Ideal for a dwarven under-mountain fortress!
An excellent starting point for a varied adventure, this seed spawns you close to the borders of a solid collection of varied biomes, giving you a delicious amount of visual variety. These areas are also packed with resources, and whilst none of them will fast track you to battle-ready status you’ll certainly find living off the land no problem at all.
With the crazy success that is Frozen still ringing in everyone’s ears, you may want to find a suitably chilly locale to recreate your favourite Anna and Elsa moments in. This seed is the one you’ll need, spawning you right in the centre of a substantial ice spikes patch in an area of grand snowy beauty.
Spawning in a pretty wooded area, you’re just a few steps away from some brilliant loot in this seed. Just head to your right to discover a cave with a two zombie spawners inside, as well as three chests containing some very decent loot: some music discs, iron, a couple of Enchanted Infinity Books, and a Golden Apple!
Right at spawn you’ll find a picturesque church village that conveniently has a blacksmith’s loaded up with a pick, some armour, and some bread to get you going. But when you spawn it’s the pond to your right that holds the biggest treasure. Just dig down from there and you’ll uncover an underground cave network filled with lava rivers, waterfalls, and mining opportunities aplenty.
A stunningly beautiful and varied world sprouts from this seed, containing almost every biome you can imagine within relatively easy travel distance from spawn. Three huge savannah plateaus are one of the tourist spots, but you’ll also find some floating islands, a colossal mesa area with a Bryce zone, a huge birch tree forest, and a colourful mushroom biome. The absolute ideal stage for a multiplayer server.
This is quite a sight to behold; a spectacular Savannah Plateau M will be right in front of you when you spawn into this seed. A massive mountain that reaches beyond the clouds, the sheer faces pour with waterfalls and lava streams, whilst the top is a great flat canvas for a castle build. The surrounding area is resource-rich, so carving the plateau into your own kingdom should be no problem at all.
