How To Find and View a Minecraft World Seed Map
As much of an explorer I am, there’s only so far I’m willing to blindly travel for resources. That’s where having the world’s seed comes in handy! Minecraft’s seeds are values made up of characters and are the basis for generating every Minecraft world.
Minecraft uses an algorithm called Perlin noise to generate each new world. Perlin noise outputs a pseudo-random value that is used to determine the characteristics and features of that world. It’s a constant point or seed, meaning the same seed will generate the same terrain each time it’s used.
Below is a step-by-step guide to finding your world seed and viewing an interactive seed map!
Note: You must have permission on a multiplayer server in order to get the seed number.
1 – Get Your World Seed Number
Minecraft already comes with a simple command to finding out your world’s seed. Simply open the chat and type
/seed. Upon hitting
Enter, your world seed will appear in the chat.
2 – Copy Seed Number
Hover the mouse over the seed number in the chat and left click to copy the seed.
3 – Go to the Chunk Base Website
Chunk Base is a website that provides a collection of apps to help Minecraft players find features or points of interest in their world.
Most importantly for this guide, Chunk Base has a free and interactive seed map application. Click this link to travel to the page, then paste your seed code into the box shown above!
4 – Filter and View Seed Map
The map will automatically update to your world. You can toggle what features you want to see and even filter specific biomes! Plus, if you want to save the map for later use, you can download a PNG file.
