The Shortlist

Java Seeds

From Mansion, With Love

If you love Woodland Mansions, then you'll love this seed. At spawn you find yourself in a thick heart-shaped forest outlined by sand and completely encased in a giant Badlands Biome! At the heart of this Forest is a Woodland Mansion, just waiting for you to loot. You know what they say about Minecraft*: Mansion Home is where the heart is!

*Nobody says this.

Life and Death

In this map, you spawn in a zombie village in a large ocean that branches into a normal village on the other side of the island. Your goal? Protect the villagers at all costs! Scavenge for supplies from the dead zone when you can, but don't bring any of the zombies back. This is a one-of-a-kind seed and an exceptional way to start a new Minecraft Survival world!

The Carpenter's Dream

This is a special seed because it features something we have never seen before: all types of overworld wood are within 20 blocks of 0 0. In the image above, you can see Acacia, Spruce, Oak, Birch, Dark Oak, and Jungle Wood are all there. This seed is perfect for those that like to have variety when they're making their first base. It also means you'll have access to every type of tree until you find a better map. This truly is one of the rarest world generation Easter eggs you'll find.

Neverwinter

In this beautiful map seed, you spawn right inside a coastal Village that is surrounded by mountains. This is the perfect location to build a massive empire that is protected from raids and pillages. There is only one direction for enemies to come from, so it's really just a matter of fortifying your defenses there. You can also take advantage of the massive mountains and mine straight through them from your hometown.

Shipwreck Cove

On Shipwreck Cove, you spawn on a shipwreck, stranded to an island, far from civilization. However, there is another Shipwreck here, which means you might not be alone. Well, in Single Player, you know you're alone. Use your imagination! Make up a story, or just enjoy the peace and solitude of Shipwreck Cove!

Bedrock Seeds

Brennenburg Castle

This seed is set up so perfectly that it seems like it's straight out of the horror game Amnesia. You spawn at a Mansion, which is rare for a Bedrock Seed. A short hike away you will find a village with a ravine running through it, and inside the ravine is a visible Stronghold. This is a great seed to use if you're looking to get started and get to the action right away so you can sit pretty as the ruler of your Minecraft world.

Master of the Elements

In this seed, you spawn in a normal environment. Nothing too fancy. However, put on your hiking boots and adventuring gear, because you're going to want to travel the center of the world (coordinates 0 0) to reach a lake in the middle of six different environments. You'll have Ice, Mountain, Plains, Forest, Mesa, and Mushroom Biomes all within a few hundred blocks of each other, making you the ultimate Master of the Elements!

Smithtown 2.5

Last month, we featured a seed called Smithtown that boasted four blacksmiths among its residents. We now introduce you to the new, hyper-upgraded version of that town: Smithtown 2.5, home to 10 Blacksmiths. We rarely feature seeds that are too similar to one another, but we had to make an exception this once. With 10 Blacksmiths, your options while trading greatly increase your chances of getting the best battle gear possible. The best part? The village is only about 300 blocks away from spawn!

Village Valley

Don't let this seed's featured image fool you, this is a fluke. You do indeed spawn to a pleasant Taiga Village, with ample wood and resources available. However, if you like Strongholds, you'll have your work cut out for you in this world. This seed offers the village, and a Stronghold built with two spawners in the library. If you can master the dungeon, you deserve bragging rights!

Smithtown

In this incredible seed, you spawn a short walk away from a town with four Blacksmiths. We've featured towns with three blacksmiths before, and those were popular enough as it is. If you travel a short distance on this map, you'll find what we've called Smithtown, which on top of having four Blacksmiths, is an absolutely massive village as well!

Don't forget: All Bedrock seeds work on all versions of Minecraft except the PC Version, which runs Java. Minecraft for Windows 10 also uses Bedrock Edition!
