Minecraft’s world is generated randomly, based on a series of “seeds” that populate the world with the necessary details to make up any Minecraft environment. It’s an almost unlimited game world based on algorithms that’ll make your mind explode if you try to think too hard about how the coders made it work. By default, the game grabs the current system time as the basic input for the starting values of a world and runs with that, but thankfully, seeds can be influenced and copied and pasted into Minecraft’s underlying code, allowing players to share the core worlds they play in.
With such a massively popular video game title, there are plenty of gamers online who are sharing their own finds. After scavenging online through various forums, communities and wikis we have listed some of the best seeds available to game on the PC platform. We’re looking at the current version of the PC release which is known as the Java Edition.
This list of seeds are just a few examples of some of the best worlds you can discover randomly within Minecraft on PC.

This is quite a gorgeous seed as it generates a really unique looking island. It’s a savanna island that is surrounded by the ocean and best of all, the island structure itself is incredible. Mountains take over most the island and its split in several areas with plenty of areas to explore. I imagine that you could put up some bases in a few areas if not on top of the island overlooking the land below.
We like to feature some unique looking generated seeds from time-to-time on here and this is another iconic one worth checking out. It’s for the Java edition and what makes this seed so unique is that the world generated a Mesa biome directly next to a Snow Tundra biome. Not only are the biomes directly connected but there’s even villages scattered around each biome.
