Minecraft seeds are a large part of seasoned players' gameplay.

Players share world seeds in the community for several reasons, and new players may not know about them or how they're used. One thing beginners will notice is the seed category, where a list of numbers sits when they look into their settings in a new world. In some cases, a seed is a combination of letters and numbers or words.

The lists of seeds can range from those perfect for speedrunners to others that make survival just a little more interesting. This article shows five things that players can use Minecraft seeds for.

Players may have trouble finding specific structures in Minecraft. An excellent way to combat this problem is to look for a seed that others have found. Most seed lists come with coordinates to locations of interest, including mansions like the one shown above, ocean monuments, and different temples in Minecraft.

A list of seeds for players looking for woodland mansions can be found in a separate article here.

When it comes to either building something in Minecraft or just trying to survive, the location can be a crucial feature. The infinite worlds that players spawn in may not have their desired biome nearby.

Biomes can include ocean biomes or the new mountain biomes that are part of the Minecraft caves and clifts update. A list of seeds that include the new mountain biome for Minecraft Bedrock version 1.7 beta can be found here.


#3 - Speedrunning

Some players may be more interested in interacting with non-hostile mobs and living the villager life. Those who prefer being near several villages may look for seeds with a high village density.

Seeds that include large amounts of villages are ideal for solo players and speedrunners alike. Gamers can find a list of such seeds for villages in Minecraft here.


#5 - Ore hunting

Players can experience trouble looking for specific materials in Minecraft. In some cases, they look for lists of world seeds giving coordinates to a particular ore like diamond or copper when version 1.17 comes out. Lists of seeds that include an abundance of diamonds have been relatively popular for a long time in Minecraft.

Readers can find a list of seeds for finding diamond ore as of January 2021 in a separate article here.
