It’s hard to deny the impact that Minecraft has had on video games throughout the last decade. Even if you aren’t still playing the 2011 sand-box phenomenon, there’s a good chance you have dipped your toes in its endless worlds and, at some point, clicked through the title screen. If you have, you’ve seen the blurred panorama that sits behind the starting menu: a world with vast lakes, mountains, and forests. It’s not unlike the world you find yourself in once you start your adventure, but it’s not exactly the same. Until now, that is, as the Minecraft community has found, the seed that leads to the title screen world.
What is a seed
A “seed,” in this case, is essentially the code that generates the world of Minecraft. If you’re just joining Minecraft for the first time, it will procedurally generate a world for you based on an algorithmically chosen seed, creating your unique experience. You can, however, choose what seed you’d like to use to generate the game world. Thanks to the community, the seed for the world you see in the original title screen has been found. To get access to it, you’ll have to input these values for the seed:
- Version: Beta 1.7.3
- Coordinates: X=61.48~, Y=75, Z=-68.73~
- Seed: 2151901553968352745 or 8091867987493326313
There you have it! Either seed will work and generate the majestic world you’ve probably seen in the title screen’s panorama a million times already.
