Taiga Islanders

Seed: -6703127032885281607

A gorgeous Taiga island floating between a Frozen Ocean and a Cold Ocean is home to one small Taiga Village. It lies at the opposite end of the island from Spawn, floating above a ruined portal in the water. The nearby waters also contain Trail Ruins and a shipwreck stuck on an iceberg. Maybe both belonged to their ancestors, who were stranded on the island decades ago with no way to escape.

This seed spawns you in Wooded Badlands right next to a singular Desert Village. Forest, Sparse Jungle, and Plains biomes can all be found nearby. Lush and Dripstone Caves can also be found beneath the surface. While the village is a great place to start for resources, there are a few other structures located within the Desert that make this seed particularly worth playing!

You start out by spawning on top of one of the homes in this Savannah Village. To the right of the village is a cave containing iron, coal, and other helpful resources. After making your start here, you can move on to explore the many other structures inhabiting the land! There are two Woodland Mansions to the northwest, a Jungle Temple to the north, and a multitude of villages about a 2,000-block trek to the east of Spawn.

As far as spawns go, I can hardly remember one one as fascinating as this. You spawn in a moderately flat meadow, with sprawling villages located on three sides. One of these villages is located right by a beach where you'll find a shipwreck, a ruined portal, and tons of buried treasure!

There are plenty of things to love about this seed, but the best thing about it is the clusters of villages that form around Spawn and other rare structures. Right when you load the world, you'll find four villages within a couple hundred blocks of a Woodland Mansion and Spawn. You'll also find three villages guarding a Stronghold not far away. As you branch out, you'll find dozens of biomes, more villages, and a plethora of other rare structures within 2,000 blocks of spawn!

If your idea of the perfect village seed is one that has dozens of villages within a day's walk from spawn—you've found it. In this seed, you'll find over 20 Villages less than 2,000 blocks from your starting point, with the vast majority of them being south of spawn (+Y). This is not just a seed for those of you who want villages, though, as there are plenty of Pillager Outposts standing between the villages. You'll have to be careful not to tread into their territory as you travel from town to town.

If you are looking for access to villages as soon as you start the world, look no further than this seed. There are at least 15 villages available to you within 1,500 blocks of spawn, giving you access to ample resources and plenty of safe havens to protect you from the harsh Minecraft world. Once you have visited all the villages and you're properly prepared, you can protect them from the evil in the five Ancient Cities and four Pillager Outposts that are also within 1,500 blocks of spawn!

Seed: 19000503

In this seed, you begin your adventure in the middle of a Desert Village. Within a 750-block radius, you will find five other Desert Villages, two Pillager Outposts, and four Desert Temples. This high number of structures suggests that there may be some intense land battles between the opposing sides. This battle provides plenty of resources for you to gather while fighting pillagers, befriending villagers, and looting Desert Temples. You will also find a Mangrove Swamp only a couple hundred blocks from Spawn!

Spawn is set on a large Taiga biome covered in rolling hills and Stony Peak mountains. A lakeside Taiga Village can be seen a short distance away. Beyond that is a matching Pillager Outpost, looming in the distance as if watching over the village. The picturesque scenery would be perfect for building a hillside cabin.

This seed starts you in a lonely Snowy Plains biome. It is surrounded by warm biomes, giving off the impression that the Spring is coming and melting the snow. The closest Snowy Village is set right at the edge of the Snowy Plains, next to a regular Plains biome. One of the village's igloos rests on the mountainside, giving the village a special touch. Another Snowy Village and a Pillager Outpost can be found in the Snowy Plains as well.

The surrounding area is covered in sprawling Plains and Meadows and contains all kinds of villages. The geography is also amazing—there are plenty of hills, water features, stunning caves, and natural arches. It's the perfect seed for those looking for an easy-going, beautiful world to build in.

Seed: 2318176229889913168

This seed spawns you on top of a blacksmith hut in a Plains Village located on the edges of a small delta. If spawning on top of one wasn't enough, you will also get to access three more blacksmiths, all in one village. The surrounding waters are worth treading as well, containing tons of Ocean Monuments, shipwrecks, and one big, circular Mushroom Island a few hundred blocks off the village's coast.

Desert seeds are rarely mentioned in top seed lists, but this one easily made the cut. You spawn next to a village facing out into a vast Warm Ocean with sprawling Coral Reefs.

There are few things more mesmerizing in Minecraft than a Windswept Village. This seed not only has a fascinating Windswept Village—it's also only a couple dozen blocks away from spawn! When the novelty of the village has worn off and you're ready to explore, you can continue heading south (positive Y) to find four more villages in a straight path. Three of these villages are next to Desert Temples, so there are plenty of resources and rare items available!

The Mountain Lair

Seed: 1090899386

This is a beautiful seed with plenty of structures and wondrous views available to you right at the start! Perhaps one of the most enticing parts about this world is that you spawn near a peculiar cluster of buildings. A villainous Pillager Outpost stands on the fringes of two Plains Villages, one of which sits on top of a hollowed-out mountain. When you're ready, you can go a couple of thousand blocks East or West (+/- Z) to find dozens of villages littered throughout the countryside!

Desert Village Tower

Seed: -9036966008009856678

Just a couple dozen blocks away from Spawn is one of the most unlikely Desert Village formations we've seen. The village is generated on a multi-tiered desert pillar, with each house having its own platform. This map acts as both the perfect setting for an adventure-based story and a great place to play in your own survival world. In addition to the village, there is also an Ocean Monument about 100 blocks from Spawn.

Desert Village Tower: -168, -312
Ocean Monument: -120, 152

The Villages on Meadow Mountain

Seed: 2595113116242317821

You don't spawn next to a village on this seed, but the beauty of the three closest villages makes the short walk to them well worth the adventure. The three villages within a few hundred blocks of spawn are on the outskirts of a massive ring of Meadow Mountains. Each village has its own field of flowers and offers the serene feeling everyone wants to experience in a casual Minecraft world. When you're ready, you can move into the valley within the ring of mountains and build your own village in the Flower Plains biome you find there!

Mangrove Swamp Village Mishap

Screenshot by Pro Game Guides

Code: 67561815575817929

Players start in a village right on the edge of a Mangrove Swamp biome. However, the village includes a potential glitch in the world generation, as one of the houses is split in half and replaced by a broken Nether portal. We're not sure if this was a villager's experiment gone wrong or some other happenstance. Regardless, it's still an awesome thing to see!

Key Locations and Coordinates
Village and Nether Portal: 42, 13
Village: 256, -456
Buried Chest 1: 8, -232
Buried Chest 2: 136, 264
Jungle Temple: -136, 792
