What are Minecraft Seeds and how do they work?
If you are planning to start your new Minecraft adventure, but you want to make sure the newly generated world is a great one with a rich diversity of biomes, Jungle Temples, Shipwrecks, Mansions, Villages, and so on, your best bet would be to create the new world based on a known-good seed.
Creating a new world in Minecraft allows you to specify the Seed right from the start. This seed will be used to generate the world, and it cannot be changed later. It’s also not possible to add a seed if the world has already been generated. Seeds can only be used when you create a new world.
Seeds are available on all platforms, be it PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, or Mobile. Although the world’s limitations and size may differ from one platform to another, seeds are still supported, but keep in mind that some seeds may only be usable in the Java Edition, while others may only work in the Bedrock Edition. We will specify which is which in this article.
A seed will always generate the same new world no matter how many times you use it as long as it is designed for your edition of the game (Java or Bedrock). Do keep in mind that only the basic elements will be present in the new world. No player-made structures will be generated. Natural structures like Villages, Temples, Mineshafts, Shipwrecks, Mansions, etc. will be generated too because those are part of the world.

Whether you’re looking to explore some great lush caves, find some abandoned mineshafts, explore jungle temples or just have a village close to your spawn location for trading, these seeds should help you get a headstart in the game.
Many of the Minecraft seeds presented in this article may work on v17.x too if you still run an older version for any reason, but they’ve been tested and confirmed to work with the latest version of Minecraft currently available on PlayStation 4.
Remember that it’s possible to see a world’s seed, so if you already have a world created and you enjoy its landscapes, biomes, or diversity, you can create a brand new world with the same seed.
To see an existing world’s seed you simply need to type /seed in the command console. The console can be opened by pressing the / button.
There’s also the option to Re-Create a world based on another. That’s also a quick and easy way to locally clone a world’s features in Minecraft.
That’s it for this article, time for some Subwoofer Lullaby.
