Minecraft is getting some serious graphical updates with the upcoming "Better Together" pack. which will turn the game into real eye-candy on all platforms. This also means that users of the PC and console versions of Minecraft will be able to play together in the same environment.
The update should arrive later this summer, which should prompt you to look for some great places for survival in Minecraft. So to help you do just that, here we present you with the best summer seeds for Minecraft 1.12, so you don't need to look for them all by yourselves.
There is a desert village and temple at spawn in the Minecraft seed, and another eight villages and a few more temples spawning in the same area! All this is located on one huge island surrounded by an ocean.
The temple at spawn has a few cool things inside its hidden chests, such as:
The coordinates to all of the other eight villages are as follows:
You'll spawn on the mainland shore that combines a few biomes in one area. A bit to the north you will find a mesa village that stands at the coordinates -200 -360.
The underground life of this Minecraft 1.12 seed is just as exciting as that of the overworld. For example, at coordinates -190 12 -342 you will find a zombie dungeon with two treasure chests holding:
A woodland mansion, a village, and a witch hut at spawn! The village has an excellent blacksmith with some really cool stuff inside:
The mansion is located just across the river at coordinates 204 357. There are no hidden chests in this one, but you will find a giant golem head made of wool at coordinates 211 77 376.
Here is another Minecraft 1.12 seed with a woodland mansion and a village! This time it's a desert village, though! You need to go to coordinates -950 750 for it, and -800 700 for the mansion.
Also, not too far away from this location, you will find a half-buried desert temple at coordinates -950 620 that holds some absolutely amazing items:
This is a five-jungle-temples seed! All five temples are chock full of treasures, too. The jungle area in this survival Minecraft 1.12 seed is not too big, so you should be able to get to the temples pretty quickly. Here are the coordinates:
Together, all five temples will give you the following items:
There are a lot of small desert islands in this Minecraft 1.12 seed. One of them accommodates an entire village at coordinates 568 -424. Unfortunately, there is no blacksmith. However, there is another island a bit to the south with a desert temple at coordinates 184 -280.
You can quickly travel to the mentioned desert temple and grab some fantastic loot:
You'll spawn on the border of this seed's Mesa and birch forest biomes. If you cross over the Mesa area to the north, you will find an awkwardly placed desert temple on the patch of sand at coordinates 264 -776.
Your travel cost to the temple will be more than well compensated by the following items:
Here's a double jungle temple seed for Minecraft 1.12! It's such a rarity when you can find a temple in an enormous area filled with tall, thick trees, and it's even rarer to find a jungle temple with good loot.
But both of the jungle temples in this seed are great. They are located at coordinates 1176 136 and 1320 -392 with the following items inside:
Already tired of the hot summer sun? Here's the Minecraft 1.12 seed that will help you cool down a bit.
You will spawn right near the grand ice spikes biome and a tundra that accommodates an igloo, which is really well hidden among all the trees. But you will easily find it if you follow coordinates -488 -424.
There is a secret passage under the rug inside the igloo. Open the hatch and go all the way down. At the bottom, you will find a chest that holds a golden apple.
In this Minecraft 1.12 seed, you'll spawn on the edge of the desert biome. From there on, you'll need to travel north to coordinates 1833 -635, where you will be able to locate a woodland mansion standing on the brink of another desert.
A bit to the west of the mansion, at coordinates 2184 -312, there is a village and a desert temple standing next to each other. The four chests inside the temple contain:
Here, you'll spawn on the border of jungle and flower forest biomes. If you go to the north, you will locate two small villages standing pretty close to each other at coordinates -504 296 and -712 360.
And, if you go to the south, you will find four jungle temples at the following coordinates:
These are great for players who are looking for a lot of gold and iron because these locations have:
Here's an island village with a blacksmith at spawn! But it is not the only one, as there is a replica village on another island nearby at coordinates 232 104. Even the smithies have similar items in their chests, which mostly contain armor sets.
This is really unusual and looks as if Minecraft glitched and created two identical objects in the same location.
In this Minecraft 1.12 seed, you'll spawn just outside of the jungle on the desert plain. There is a desert village and a temple standing right next to each other just a few blocks away at coordinates 200 104 and 296 152.
The village blacksmith doesn't have anything particularly interesting, but that half-buried desert temple is just what you need:
Here, you will spawn on a beautiful sunflower field not too far away from the woodland mansion that stands at coordinates -606 322, between two types of forest: roofed and taiga.
The secret chest at coordinates -605 73 343 holds a golden apple. Also, there are two huge storage rooms with lots of empty double chests on the same floor.
A village with blacksmith and a lava pool at spawn! This Minecraft 1.12 seed is perfect for those who want to farm obsidian, which requires a source of lava located close to a settlement.
There is also a blacksmith in the village that keeps a chest full of goodies:
Double village at spawn! You will spot the first one right away, but the other one is just beyond the hills at coordinates -152 200. The second one has lots and lots of horses and sheep hanging around, although neither of the settlements has blacksmiths.
But don't worry, there is a skeleton dungeon at coordinates 59 15 221 with two chests holding:
Here, you'll spawn on the beach of a diminutive survival island that has more trees than many other bigger isles located in the same area. But this one is special since it's got a whole ocean monument right beneath it.
As usual, you will be able to locate a huge chunk of gold in the treasure chamber of the monument (that is heavily guarded) at coordinates -253 42 -149. But the reward is totally worth it!
Here is another Minecraft 1.12 seed with an igloo that spawns in the most unusual way possible at coordinates -136 -280. It almost entirely stands on the walls of the secret passage that leads to an underground treasure room.
The hidden chest at the bottom of the room contains a couple of gold nuggets and, of course, a golden apple.
Another desert village and a temple at spawn! This time the smithy's chest is pretty neat, and holds some really fine items, such as:
The desert temple of this Minecraft 1.12 seed can be seen just behind the sand hill near the village at coordinates 186 71 27. The chests in this one hold all three kinds of horse armors and a few extra valuables as well:
You will spawn on one of two survival islands that share two different types of biomes. The plains island has no tress whatsoever, while the hills island has only one, which already makes your survival game tough to beat.
There is an access to an underground mineshaft from one of the islands, and at coordinates 175 36 175, you will find a chest with:
