The Best Minecraft Seeds

Updated on May 19, 2014

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!

Read more about this Minecraft seed at Seed Hunter. Be sure to leave a comment and check out the other seeds!

It's dangerous to go alone

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.

Also check out this interactive seed submission form and actual guestbook.

      I can't remember the exact coordinates but if you try to find the nearest stronghold, it weirdly intersects a QUADRUPLE ravine. Then, if you go through a certain leg of the stronghold, there is yet a TRIPLE RAVINE. Hope this brightend up your day!

      1108132659 is considered the son of 110813 to me. This is because it is a great map for survival role play and this has a big ocean with more than 3 mushroom biomes and 1 Island with a town. This map reminded me of the show Lost. Try it out!

    • profile image

      anonymous 4 years ago

      I have personally typed in random codes on the Xbox version getting major results these seeds are double checked and explored so that you can enjoy every block. One seed is 110813. I got the idea when I saw the numbers as the random text on the start menu. Thinking it was a secret seed I typed it in. Was I right? You decide.

      here are 2 awesome seeds: horror you spawn right next to a double ravine with a lava fall and abandoned mineshaft right next to the double ravine and at the double ravine (which is under the first ravine that you spawn beside) there is 6 diamonds. After playing for about 5 minuteslready had 64 iron and 6diamonds. UNBELIEVABLE... Ok, so now for the second seed. Vancouver. you spawn right beside a desert temple. yeah, I know that's not a lot, but its still pretty good. I hope those seeds are useful!

      @anonymous: If you have a ipod iphone or ipad you have to have paid mode to enter a seed but to get a seed you can get them online but be sure to say what electronic you are using and what minecraft it is. You can also figure them out your self by entering random words in a box next to the word "seed" you have to buy a game disc to play mine craft on a computer also know as pc or an xbox 369. You do not buy seeds online simply look up good seed codes for mine craft pe (i am using pe mode so i would type in pe) then you type in for ipad. ( as i am using an ipad to play it) hopefully you get working codes and each year be sure to look up the same thing again to get more updated codes have a fun time playing minecraft i am sort of a beginner i caught on the seeds very quickly

      Well I tried "free" but I didn't get the village. On the bright side, I went into a ravine. THere was tons of lava lakes down there. When I went down further, diamond galore. Came up outta there with 18 diamonds.

      Sorry for the two comments before I posted they're the same I thought it didn't post. :3

      Anyway, I discovered a new seed. :) It's called Extreme Hills. You spawn in an extreme hills biome (which is awesome), and not only, there's a super, amazing, desert temple right ahead at coordinates (x=-219), (y=65), (z=266). But not that it's just a desert temple, it has the one in a lifetime stuff in the chests.

      So you get down to the chests, and DELETE THE PRESSURE PLATE. There's a 3x3 grid of TNT under your feet and it will explode you and along with the goodies. Back to the goods, open the first chest to your west (rhymes!). Nothing good. The north, things get better. 3 diamonds! And best, to your east, 3 more diamonds and 2 emeralds! Then to your south, the same as west. But isn't this an AWESOME SEED? By the way, this only works for MC1.5.2.

    • profile image

      anonymous 4 years ago

      one cool seed I discovered was 2656020323072329524 (version 1.5.2, don't copy what's in parentheses)

      So, you spawn in like this beach in the plains. Then, dig straight down at (x=102) (z=305). Then, at (y=23), dig/mine 2 blocks west. Then go left, and in the ravine, you find a lava lake. Facing north to that lava lake is a skeleton dungeon smack dab right there. What is cool about it is that the chest is floating, and the dungeon is also in an abandoned mineshaft. :D

      Also, at the end of the ravine, you reach a gravel part. Dig down 5 blocks down, and mine south. You'll reach a cavern. At the end of the cavern, dig 17 blocks east. Then go to your right, and at the end of that right of the cavern dig 4 blocks west, and then dig 7 blocks south. WATCH OUT. you'll fall into lava if ur in survival mode. But on the good side ur in a ravine! Go to your left of the ravine until you find 4 diamond! It is really 8 diamonds, but you can make a lot of diamond with that, and 1 more diamond would give you 1 diamond block! Please use this seed it works for 1.5.2

      Epic glitch seed. A complete boxy island with hill biome, woods, jungle, and swamp. Also has a hint of an ocean island. Completely isolated in big ocean. The actual seed is -8035621654084923561. ONE PROBLEM!!! This seed may take a few tries for the glitch to occur. Watch my video and the world files might be posted. (If possible) Enjoy! :D Fun for a group of friends looking for a WEIRD island with SEVERAL glitches and with some degree of size. FUN FACT: We found diamonds above ground on this seed.... It is so FUCKING WEIRD!!!
