Minecraft's 1.16 Nether Update was released in 2020, overhauling the preexisting Nether with new biomes, mobs, and more! It was also the update before Overworld caves became the monstrous geographical structures they now are—so if you love the Nether but aren't a big fan of caves, you may enjoy this version more than the current one.

Seed: -3422688841884816617

This Desert Village was once a lively, bustling place that served as the home to dozens of Desert Villagers. While digging through the desert sand to build more homes, the top of an ancient Desert Temple was uncovered. The villagers' excitement at the find was quickly destroyed by the ancient plague it unleashed! The Desert Village is now a ghost town home only to the remaining infected residents.

This adventure begins on a small Beach and Forest island surrounded by giant blocks of ice. To survive, you'll need to catch fish from the freezing waters and use the few trees you have to build a warm base. As you get more supplies, you can craft a boat and escape for a warmer destination. Luckily, you're surrounded by Desert biomes on three sides!

Mushroom Islands are often found alone in the center of the ocean. There may be a different type of island nearby, but I've generally only seen them with other Mushroom Islands. In this seed, the Mushroom Island has merged with a nearby Savanna island, something I've not seen before! The nearby ocean also contains an Ocean Monument and a shipwreck for you to explore.

This seed is unique due to the cluster of Cold Ocean Ruins rising above the surface. This makes them easier to loot, especially in the daytime when the sun will damage the drowned. The nearby ocean will contain a few smaller ruins and shipwrecks, while the rest of the world is mainly Stony Shores, Windswept Hills, and Taiga biomes.
