The Best Minecraft Seeds
Awesome Minecraft Seed Codes
Minecraft is a superb game and I really like that there are virtually infinite possibilities of different worlds. However, by using a specific Minecraft seed, you can get a specific kind of world. A Minecraft seed code generates the same world every time.
In this lens I'm featuring the best Minecraft seeds. And know what, you can also post your own (good) Minecraft seeds to share with others!
Psst... Check out this: The Best Minecraft Comics!
What Are Minecraft Seeds?
According to Minecraft Wiki, Minecraft seeds are codes used in Minecraft's world generation process. Each world has its own seed value, which means that you'll always get the same world when using the same seed.
Please note that the player's initial spawn point will be random, that is, your first location may not always be the same.
Also, the world generation algorithm is sometimes tweaked when new versions of Minecraft come out, so older seeds may not work with the latest versions. But do try them out!
Do PC Seeds work on Xbox? How about Pocket Edition?
As you probably know, Minecraft comes in three flavors: one edition for PC, one for Xbox 360, and two for mobile phones (Pocket Edition is available for both Android and iOS).
The question hence is, do Minecraft PC seeds work on Xbox 360 or Pocket Editions? The (unfortunate) answer is no.
According to Minecraft Wiki, "The Xbox 360 Edition was released based on an earlier version of the PC edition." As stated above, the world generation algorithm is sometimes tweaked when new versions of Minecraft come out, so older seeds may not work with the latest versions. That's also the reason why seeds are not cross-platform.
Most of the seeds on this page are for the PC edition, but you are free to share seeds for all platforms!
Minecraft Seed in the Spotlight
From time to time, I bring a really cool Minecraft seed code into the spotlight (which is just below!). At this time, the featured Minecraft seed spawns you in a jungle surrounded by three different biomes!

It's dangerous to go alone
You know what this is used for, right?
Just in case grab this one with you as well!
Below everyone can add their own favorite Minecraft seeds and comment others' submissions. HTML is allowed, spamming is not.
Please include Minecraft version number (e.g. "PC 1.3.1") and a short description about why the seed is great.

How to Find a Minecraft Seed
Instructions for recent versions of Minecraft (beta 1.8+ and non-beta 1.0+)
Press F3 in the game to see your coordinates and the current world's seed. So much easier now. =)
Instructions for Minecraft beta 1.7 and earlier
You can find out your worlds' seeds with a nice (and free) online tool which can be found here: http://seedscope.net/. You can find your save files (level.dat files) this way:
Press the Windows button + R and type %appdata%. Press enter, and a folder should appear. Navigate to the folder .minecraft and then again to the folder saves and ta-dah! There are your save files, nicely organized in separate folders.
Your save files are located at ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/saves/
