Minecraft: Top 10 Map Seeds

With the new seeds in Minecraft, you can spawn some awesome worlds. Each seed looks identical making it easy to share your worlds with friends or family. With endless seeds out there its hard to know which ones are worth your time. Here is my personal top 10 Minecraft seed list!

10.  Eagle

Entering “eagle” as your seed will spawn you a sprawling desert.  If you travel around, you will find a huge stone mountain that is precariously balanced above a grassy oasis.  This map is awesome for creating pyramids and other buildings made from sandstone.  The mountain offers a great 360 view of the surrounding landscape.

9.  Glacier

Entering the seed “Glacier”  Will spawn you in between a whole bunch of mountains.  There are a couple lakes around as well as caves.  This map is excellent for building large projects or connecting mountains with bridges etc.  The ultimate area for defence, Glacier offers some unique gameplay.

8. Discord

Entering the seed “discord” will set you up on the largest sand-based map in Minecraft.  It almost never ends, with sand in every direction.  there are almost no mountains or other blocks than sand.  If you are looking for a place to build the Pyramids of Giza or the Sphinx, this is most definitely the map for you.

7. To The Moon

The seed “to the moon” will set you on a water filled landscape with a few scattered islands.  If you travel around and find a sand bar with a few single- block holes on it, then you’ve found the maps secret.  If you find this sandbar, go down the deep holes to find a gigantic pitch-black cave.  There is tons to explore down there, so goodluck!

6. Atticus

Typing in “Atticus” will give you a snowy world with a unique surprise.  If you venture to coordinates -540, -940 you will find the entrance to a deep cave.  Upon exploring it you will discover it is an underground beach with a lake and everything! This is a great map for snow structures as well as exploring.

5. Wave Race 64

This seed “Wave Race 64” Will give you some awesome game play.  With tons of water and tall mountains, this map captures the feel of Minecraft but amps it up.  There are numerous great building locations and almost all spawns will give you a nice starting location.

4. Pokeylucky

The map seed “pokeylucky” is a pretty great seed.  Upon entering the world, you will be immersed in a landscape full of floating islands.  These islands are awesome for building and look great if you build waterfalls off the sides.  It might take a bit of exploring to find them, but this map has a lot to offer.

3.  Gargamel

Entering the seed “gargamel” Will spawn you in between an entire valley of high mountain walls.  There is one dark cave leading out of the valley into a sprawling landscape of beautiful Minecraft landscape.  With a seemingly endless horizon, this map offers some of he best areas to see your creations come to life.

2. 10110101

Entering the seed “10110101”   will place you in one epic map.  There are numerous huge mountain arches with large gaps in between.  It is an awesome seed for building giant projects on.  It may take a bit of time to find this area but I assure you that this map is well worth your time.

1.        404

This seed is not for the faint of heart.  Entering “404” will spawn you in a seemingly normal world.  Close to your spawn will be a large gravel pit.  If you remove any of the gravel pieces you will open up a gigantic cave! The cave is filled with tons of enemies, ore and lava.  This map even has a game and point system with it to add scoring.  Good luck and make sure to bring your weapons and wits!

    try dovahkiin (skyrim reference) go near the sand and look around nearby there is a town. there is a chest with diamonds and lots of other good stuff

  22. Posted March 27, 2012 at 12:53 am

    Wow, I never knew you could do this. I always thought it was just random or you needed specific coordinates to enter.

    I think 1 and 2 look the most interesting. I’m going to try those out tonight!
