Best Minecraft seeds (Java Edition) – All Versions

Players in Minecraft always looking for good places to build their bases and enjoy the game.

Minecraft’s world is so so big that every now and then players find unique, weird and fun places in Minecraft that are fun to see. Like a library right in the middle of the ocean.

What are Minecraft seeds?

TL;DR: Minecraft seeds are basically a set of random values that define the start of a Minecraft world.

A Minecraft seed refers to the way you spawn into a Minecraft world. Seeds are not random. In fact, there are a limited number(even that is huge) of Minecraft seeds that can possibly be generated.

There is an estimated 18 QUINTILLION (2^64) possible seeds in Minecraft.


Seeds can be used to share a Minecraft world. Otherwise, they can be used to find a world that has a specific property, such as animals or trees. Seeds can also be used to locate specific features of a world, such as the position of a mountain or a village.

In Minecraft seeds you are the creator of your world, you can choose any combination of blocks that you like to create anything you can imagine. These combinations of blocks have been referred to as Minecraft seeds.

How do you get Minecraft seeds?

Minecraft seeds are a combination of numbers and letters. The numbers and letters that make up a Minecraft seed are called an ‘ID’. Each Minecraft seed will only generate one world. If you change any number or letter in the combination the Minecraft seed will no longer be the same.

For instance here is an example of Survival Island Seed: Seed: 2622795609673772012 (Version 1.19)

What is Biome in Minecraft

A Minecraft biome is an area with different kinds of Minecraft blocks: Oak leaves, Oak trees, stone and grass, for example. The biome determines the kind of blocks you will find in that area. It also determines the kinds of mobs that will spawn in that area. Some biomes contain no mobs at all. Biomes don’t always have to look a certain way. The plains biome can be a flat grassland, a colourful flower field, or even a snowy tundra!


Current Biomes in Minecraft

Plains, Forests, Jungles, Mountains, Deserts, Taiga, Snowry tundra, Ice Spikes, Swamps, Savannahs, Badlands, Beaches, Stone Shores, Rivers, Oceans, Mushroom Islands, The Nether, The End.
