Since Beta 1.3, players could input their own seeds upon world creation, and with 281 trillion seeds available, it takes a dedicated — or lucky — gamer to find the ones that truly shine. Try out these seeds for yourself.
1. World in the Air
This seed generates a map with some of the most epic scenery we’ve seen. And a forum-goer named Xarfax wrote this delightful limerick about it:
There once was a seed for a game,
With a long and numerical name.
With caves to the sky and a lonely pumpkin guy,
Jeebus christ I love this game!
So I kick to my feet and explore.
A landscape most epic of yore.
A quick walk around, then the sun, it goes down.
And I’m shot full of arrows once more.
2. NEVER SEEN BEFORE SEED!
While the right music can make even the mundane seen marvelous, even on mute, this world is majestic.
3. Great Flatland!
Sometimes, you just want flat terrain that is easy to build on. Landscaping is a hassle.
4. Flying mountains, Giant Overhangs & Caves
This map contains no less than 14 unique and interesting locations, all of which have been marked on an overland map by the seed discoverer.
5. Great Mountain Seed!!
I’m noticing a trend; many of these seeds have “great” and exclamation marks in their titles. Nonetheless, impressive.
6. The Diamond Mother Load
No eye candy here, unless you consider sparkly diamonds eye candy. This is a practical seed; a map in which you can find a ton of diamond.
7. The Sky Lagoon
The main attraction of this seed is a beautiful lake surrounded by a suspended circle of floating mountains that reach max height; the trees on top of them are cut off. Gorgeous.
8. MOST BEAUTIFUL SEED EVER?
Ah, our dear friend Caps Lock returns. Still, hard to argue with the title.
This seed features a bounty of gorgeous overhangs and archways, plenty of mountains and waterfalls, a wide, flat tundra, snowy pine forests, and many natural caves.
10. Epic Cliffs
This map is a rock climber’s dream.
