    What do you look for in a Minecraft seed?

    What do you look for in a Minecraft seed? Good mountain formations, survival islands, or some other reason not mentioned?

    I usually prefer an area with plains or desert nearby. I might not build in those areas though, depends on my mood.

    The reason why I generally look for these areas is that it's the only places that NPC villages appear. I don't really interact with them but I will raid their gardens. It's one of the only places to get carrots and potatoes. Carrots are especially important, as you need them to lure pigs and get them to breed. Might not seem like it's that important, but having a full complement of chickens, pigs, cows, sheep, wheat, carrots, potatoes, and maybe even pumpkins can be a big help at times.

    Other than that, I'll look for open cave networks, an instant mineshaft. The deeper they go the better. I'll usually grab a few torches and stock up on logs. This way as i go down i can make planks/sticks for tools and torches. The coal I find along the way. If you do this just clear section by section and make sure you have plenty of food with you, it's easy to get turned around in a large network.

      Yeah, and the fact the npc villages sometimes contain diamonds, and other useful resources as well.

    I usually enjoy a seed with loads of mountains and valleys to build around, as opposed to destroying. Then, I like a big open spot where I can build even more. I especially like to be dropped near a huge ocean so I can trail myself up in the air, and make a floating fortress. Or house/tower/factory/whatever I decide to build. As long as it floats big_smile

      Yeah I found a awesome mountain seed that is really good, and plan to build a lot of stuff on the mountains. If you get the chance try the seed "-7409309040334141422" without the quotes on Minecraft 1.5/1.5.1.

      I'd love to, but my poor old dinosaur computer can't handle minecraft. I usually have to play the pocket edition until i can borrow a more advanced computer
