Java Seeds

Village Mountain

Seed: 292038360

It may be hard to see, but three villages are surrounding the mountain in the image above. The best part? You spawn on that mountain! This seed is a wonderful option to use if you're just starting 1.18 and want to have a slight advantage while exploring the incredible new world generation. You can either use this as a starting point or reign over your village citizens below and build a giant castle on the mountain.

  • Key Locations
    • Spawn: 98 110 -139
    • Village #1: -15 100 -15
    • Village #2: -180 70 110
    • Village #3: -168 71 -150

The Bamboo Garden

Seed: -469303486518945144

You spawn on a mountainous ring around a Bamboo garden on this seed. If that doesn't sell you, perhaps you'd be interested that this ring is inside a massive Jungle biome. If you just want jungle, jungle, jungle — this is the perfect seed. Build your base inside the Bamboo garden, and establish yourself as King of the Jungle.

  • Key Locations
    • Nether Portal: -280 104
    • Jungle Temple #1: -328 -344
    • Jungle Temple #2: -248 -792
    • Jungle Temple #3: 136 -936
    • Village: -360 -952

Rock and Water

Seed: 3969420520284585470

You spawn on a rather large island in this seed with several other islands nearby. This seed is great for starters because it starts you in an area that you can roam for weeks or months, but you're not too far off from mainland when you're ready to move on. You also have a beautiful view from the mountain, where you can see the surrounding structures, which includes two Villages and an Ocean Monument!

  • Key Locations
    • Village #1: -280 328
    • Village #2: 216 664
    • Ocean Monument: 136 168
    • Shipwreck #1: 200 296
    • Shipwreck #2: -456 248

The Northern Frontier

Seed: 8027300948549384115

You spawn near three villages in this seed, but we've focused on the obvious rivalry between the two shown in the image. You have the option of taking the side of the mountain people, nestled in a ring of mountains and well protected, or the village outside of the ring. Or, who knows, maybe you'll join the third village that we don't even have shown!

  • Key Locations
    • Village #1: 56 -136
    • Village #2: -248 -168
    • Village #3: -424 120
    • Igloo: -152 24
    • Nether Portal: -440 -280

Third Mansion's a Charm

Seed: mansion

From spawn, there are three mansions within 2000 blocks in this seed. Mansions are one of the rarest structures in Minecraft (they're even more rare than Strongholds), so to have three of them this close to spawn is certainly a thrill. Do you think you can take on all three without dying?

  • Key Locations
    • Mansion #1: -1688 567
    • Mansion #2: -2392 -760
    • Mansion #3: 1800 -488
    • Village #1: 344 -376
    • Village #2: -216 -264

Poolside Cavern

Seed: 292038360

On the opposite end of the majestic mountains listed in the seed prior, we have the other primary feature of 1.18 world generation: caves. This is one of the best seeds to see what cave generation is about in this new update, and what better way to enjoy it than in a pool? In the image, you can see a small pool overlooking a massive hollowed out chunk of land, which can't possibly be frightening to an adventurer such as yourself.

  • Key Locations
    • Spawn: 0 68 0
    • Poolside Cavern: -505 55 590
    • Nether Portal: -350 65 170

Riverside Mansion

Seed: -501260903

If you want to make a Woodland Mansion your home, this is the best one to do it. You spawn at 0 0, and must only make a short hike to find the nearest Mansion, which overlooks massive river leading to a lake. You can tell that whoever built this mountain appreciated the beauty of nature.

  • Key Locations
    • Mansion: 137 -788
    • Nether Portal: 24 -472
    • Village: 776 200
    • Buried Treasure: 8 -184
    • Buried Treasure: -120 -168

Flower Children

Seed: 944710140

If you love flower villages, this is the perfect map. There are three flower villages (Villages that generate in Flower Fields biomes) not far off from spawn on this seed. Try out this seed if you enjoy the calm, peaceful atmosphere of Minecraft and want access to a head start in your survival world. Don't forget to stop and smell the roses!

  • Key Locations
    • Flower Village #1: -504 -456
    • Flower Village #1: 152 -456
    • Flower Village #1: 328 -1352
    • Nether Portal: -248 -424
    • Igloo w/ Basement: -344 -888

The Goodlands

Seed: -78688046

This is our favorite seed so far for Minecraft 1.18. You spawn in what is supposed to be the Badlands, but the size and beauty of it all are anything but bad. In the Badlands, you'll find massive craters filled with water and a Coral Reef in a massive alcove that separates the Badlands from a sizeable Savannah biome.

  • Key Locations
    • Village: -360 -360
    • Abandoned Village: -872 -296
    • Jungle Temple: 40 696
    • Stronghold: -812 -844
    • Nether Portal: 120 -280

  1. Could someone give me the cords of the mountain ring in the bamboo one? I’m not able to find it

    1. Hello! So I just checked this to confirm it’s still the same, and it is. You spawn on the mountain ring that surrounds the Bamboo jungle. Are you perhaps trying that seed on the Bedrock version? If you’re playing on a console (PlayStation, Xbox, Switch), then that seed won’t work since it’s a seed for the Java version.
