Seed: -4585647411243891624

These villagers have made their home in a frigid Ice Spikes biome. The village contains a Blacksmith as well as a home that has merged with a Cold Ocean Ruin! In the distance, a shipwreck lays sideways within one of the ice spikes. We can only speculate whether it belonged to the villagers or someone who has long since left the area.

Shipwreck: 229, -262

This Desert is filled with lively villages, with this five-tower one in a Coral Reef being the star. Two towers have merged while the other three stand in various positions in the village. Each comes with its own treasure chest and a glorious ocean view. The rest of the Desert contains two Desert Villages, plus a Pillager Outpost.

Seed: 1775671640889079176

This seaside town is the embodiment of a peaceful life. The ocean is filled with fish and gently swaying kelp, while the land has green grass and shady trees to relax under. Leave the fighting to the town's Iron Golems and create the picturesque home of your dreams. If you decide you truly want a little excitement, the chest in front of the ruined portal has the supplies necessary to both repair and light it.

Key Locations and Coordinates
Seaside Villas: 11, 97
Ruined Portal: 2, 166

Turtle Town

Seed: -1056380600064954589

This bustling Plains Village was built on the edge of a beach used for turtle hatching! Make your home amongst the village and watch the delicate turtle eggs hatch. As the seasons go by, adult turtles will lay their eggs, they will hatch, the baby turtles will head to the sea to grow up, and the cycle will reset. A second village can be found a walk away near a ruined portal.

Key Locations and Coordinates
Turtle Town: -205, 88
Riverside Village: -349, -161

Massive Mountain Village

Seed: 2766104648628114556

This Plains Village is as large as the mountain it stands against. The buildings extend from the Plains below to the snowy perimeter of the mountainside. With the area around the mountain containing three separate Ancient Cities, it can be assumed that the remaining members of each civilization gathered together to form this larger town.

Key Locations and Coordinates
Massive Mountain Village: 160, 291
Ancient City 1: -183, -44, 104
Ancient City 2: 184, -45, 22

Landslide Village

Seed: 8150459650372154626

My first thought upon encountering this village was that its buildings must have been separated by some natural disaster like a landslide. A few of the houses have remained in their place at the top of the Meadow, but the rest are sunken into the sides of the hill. Luckily, the resourceful villagers have adapted well to their new, somewhat wonky way of life.

Landslide Village: 186, -2

Abandoned Cherry Grove

Seed: -5656403229273419055

With the Cherry Grove being a new biome, its resources and beauty have been beloved by the majority of players. However, the villagers here must have disagreed as they have left everything they owned behind to start anew elsewhere. You can rebuild the remains of the city and repopulate with fellow cherry-lovers, or join the previous inhabitants further away in a Taiga biome.

Key Locations and Coordinates
Taiga Village: 16, 272
Pillager Outpost: 224, 144
Trail Ruins: 160, 164

The Other Side of the Mountain

Seed: -7326290969576805714

While the spawn on this seed initially appears to be a desolate mountain surrounded by nature, that notion is quickly dismissed via exploration. Heading to the side of the mountain opposite spawn reveals a thriving Plains Village that you can quickly move into. It's a very resource-rich area: the nearby mountains are riddled with caves and the interconnecting cave system contains both a mineshaft and an Ancient City. Plus, the Plains Village has the perfect lava pool for building a Nether Portal!

Key Locations and Coordinates
Mountainside Plains Village: -256, 272
Plains Village 2: 266, 215
Steep Cave Leading to Mineshaft and Ancient City: -376, -69

Diverse Village

Seed: -8883061082460472607

While this Plains Village is small and quaint, the area around it is anything but. The village resides in a small Plains biome surrounded by Forest, Jungle, and Savannah biomes. Traveling to the south will lead you to a Frozen Ocean while a trip to the north brings you to a Warm Ocean. The only biomes not located nearby are Dark Forest and Desert biomes, but small pockets of those can be found with a little effort.

Key Locations and Coordinates
Plains Village: 93, 196
Hidden Trail Ruins: 227, 101
Ruined Portal: 109, 88

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.

Key Locations and Coordinates
Taiga Village: 256, 592
Trail Ruins: 312, 616
Shipwreck: 88, 568

This Plains Village is a great home for those who want to live in leisure. There is plenty of open space to craft, resources to dig up, and a large ocean to fish from. Additionally, the biome this village is in is home to several families of donkeys! Tame one and bring them along on your travels to reduce the amount of resources you have to carry.

This Plains Village is only a short walk from Spawn. It has over a dozen houses, plus the remnants of a ruined portal between two of its homes.

Seed: 2007204438605896890

The first Desert Village of this seed lies against the ocean right next to Spawn. It's a lively hub for trading with villagers from other biomes, although the shipwrecks in the nearby waters show that the trade routes can be deadly. In the distance, the Desert Village where the merchants get their supplies from has been taken hostage by a group of Pillagers! Defeat them and take back the village to restore the trade route to its initial glory. When this is done, an additional source of goods can be acquired by visiting a third Desert Village 600 blocks away.

Key Locations and Coordinates
Desert Village: 104, 104
Desert Village with Pillager Outpost: 637, 389
Third Desert Village: 165, 755

Seed: -5332802079717382337

This Taiga Village blends into the snow-covered spruce trees around it. The only way of knowing it's there is by seeing the pathways the villagers have carved into the hill. A matching shipwreck can be found on top of the nearby Frozen Ocean, providing extra treasures to those willing to brave the cold to loot it.

This Savanna Village was unknowingly built on top of a Stronghold very close to Spawn. A Pillager Outpost keeps a watchful eye on the village and its underground treasures a short distance away. Players can also find a ruined portal near Spawn, giving players the potential to go to both the Nether and the End very quickly in this world.

Key Locations and Coordinates
Ruined Portal: 370, 178
Savanna Village: 634, 228

Seed: -8883061082460472607

The villages in this seed are all in immense danger! To the northwest of Spawn lies two Plains Villages separated by a ruined portal. The first is still healthy, but the furthest one has been overcome by a virus that has turned its inhabitants into zombies. To the east, a Savannah Village is being held hostage by a Pillager Outpost. You can choose to save one village over the other, fight to save both or leave it up to natural selection to decide.

Key Locations and Coordinates
Uninfected Plains Village: -506, -303
Ruined Portal: -646, -287
Infected Plains Village: -688, -316

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.

Taiga Village: 104, 152
Pillager Outpost: 136, 264
Underground Trail Ruins: 168, 264

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.

This is one of the most gorgeous Plains Village spawns I've ever seen! You spawn near the edge of a Cherry Grove containing a Plains Village. 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.

Key Locations and Coordinates
Blacksmith Village: Spawn
4 Buried Treasures: 712, -376
