This next seed contains all sorts of areas worth exploring. When you first spawn, you’ll find yourself next to a large roofed forest jam packed with giant mushrooms. You’ll find lavafalls and mountains, and eventually you will come across some rewarding desert loot within a village!
The gold mine isn’t just a phrase to say this seed is full of great things. On top of containing three generated structures, it also contains lots of real gold in the mineshaft and ravine.
You begin this seed in a small plains area with a village right in front of you. There’s also a forest past the village, but there are roofed forests containing large mushrooms on all of your other sides.
Of all the Minecraft biomes I’m partial to mesa, and especially bryce mesa biomes. We’re all pretty used to seeing them, but every now and again you one that is just too cool of a seed not to share. This is one of those seed. Yes, there is a temple (or several temples) in there somewhere, and I’m sure there’s a handful of villages and a witch hut or jungle temple. But, we didn’t go track those down. This seed we’re sharing purely to celebrate the beauty that a mathematical algorithm that can come up with.
This 1.8x seed spawns you halfway up the high cliffs of a stone beach looking out over deep ocean. Digging straight down from the spawn point you will find an underground cave about halfway to bedrock. You can explore in two directions. If you go in the downward direction and explore the tunnels and passages it reveals you’ll see that the cave’s predominant ore is gold. We found three gold deposits worth mining within fifteen minutes of exploring in creative mode. We also came across iron, coal and lapis lazuli (once) during that same exploration.
Launched this game in Minecraft 1.8 (haven’t checked 1.7 versions yet) and the seed spawns in a swamp. Looking in one direction there is plains and the edge of a roofed forest. Right near the spawn point there’s a cool ravine. It has a waterfall on one end and a lava flow at the other. The best part: surface gold (13 blocks). You can see it without even jumping down.
