The next major update for Minecraft is still many months away, and there haven't been any new updates for 1.17 snapshots either, so it's a good time to revisit the most stable 1.16.4 version once again.
In this month's selection of top Minecraft seeds you will find many hardcore worlds that will challenge even the most experienced players.
Of course, you will discover some great locations for beginners, but there are plenty zombie villages, dangerous terrain, and glitchy generation to satisfy the needs of even of the most accomplished survivalists.
This seed offers an excellent opportunity for creative building.
At spawn you will find an unusual narrow hill generation that can serve as the basis for a tower that connects villages underneath it.
This tall hill also has naturally-generated spiral steps that will take you to the very top with just a single tree.
Spawn at the base of the mountain chain of shattered savanna hills that stretch well over a thousand blocks from north to south.
At coordinates -450, -300 you will find an acacia village standing next to some gorgeous formations with floating islands and hollow mountains.
If you have a survival server, then this would be an excellent challenge for all involved.
Here you will have the chance to witness a couple of extremely rare cases of natural generation.
First, you will encounter a completely exposed stronghold located between two ocean monuments at coordinates -1900, -900.
And second, the end portal inside this stronghold has four active eyes, which is one chance in a million. All you need is one more eye and you can activate a part of the portal.
Spawn on the border of desert and mesa biomes. There is a village right next to spawn that stands on top of an exposed mineshaft with a mob spawner right underneath the weaponsmith's shop.
Also, you will find not one but two ruined portals nearby at coordinates 50, 200 and -300, 250.
You will spawn on the ocean shore between two villages. One is located on the mainland at coordinates -350, -150; and the other one can be seen on a separate survival island at coordinates 50, 50.
The island village also has two blacksmiths, which is really rare, and an ocean monument sitting right next to it in the water.
If you ever wanted to start a safe hoglin farm, then check out this Minecraft seed for the direct access to hoglin stables in the nether.
The village at spawn in the forest has a ruined portal at coordinates 200, 250, which will take you straight to the bastion remnant with hoglins.
To the south of spawn you will discover a triple frontier, which consists of plains, mushroom island, and extreme hills.
At coordinates -150, 250 you will encounter a small village resting on the ocean shore near mushrooms.
On the opposite shore there is also an ocean monument and an underwater ruined portal at coordinates 150, 300.
Flower forest is one of the prettiest biomes in Minecraft. This seed even has a village at spawn with a blacksmith.
Under the village you will also discover a double mob spawner: zombie and spider dungeon at coordinates 220, 43, 51 and 199, 42, 48.
Spawn on top of a floating island with a house!
The island floats right above the acacia village. Such a lucky spawn is a very rare occurrence, but you should try it until you get one.
At times the game will spawn you on the lower ground, but if you try several more times, you should appear on the upper hut for sure.
Spawn in a forest with a ruined portal at coordinates 300, 50 and taiga village at coordinates 150, 150.
If you walk through the portal, you will end up at the bridge of one of two nether fortresses that go parallel one to each other.
Together they form a massive structure that can be explored for hours finding loot and various spawners.
You will spawn on the border of mesa and extreme hills biomes. Right at spawn you will encounter a desert temple and at coordinates 250, -100 you will find a desert village that occupies all three biomes.
It's interesting to note that one half of the village is covered in snow while the other one roasts under the sun.
After you spawn travel up north to coordinates 50, 50 for an island village that is situated between two ocean monuments.
At coordinates 100, 250 you will also see an underwater ruined portal near one of the monuments.
While you can't activate the portal under the water you can always clear the chest, which is full of goods.
Three villages at spawn!
This seed has lots of opportunities for trading and crafting right at spawn. But if you can't find all three villages, then here are their exact coordinates:
The second village is infested with zombies. But don't worry, the iron golem will deal with them for you.
Zombie villages can also generate next to jungle temples, which is the case with this seed.
Go to coordinates -350, -300 for such an uncommon occurrence. The chests inside the temple are excellent, usually generating diamonds and emeralds.
But be careful of the zombie villagers, as they may be dangerous even during day time.
Just over the hills to the north you will encounter a double village at coordinates 50, -250.
One of the villages stands in the ice spikes biome, while the other one is located in the lush plains. The latter one also has the blacksmith.
If you feel like dealing with pillagers, then be sure to check their outpost at coordinates 150, -450.
Once you spawn head eastwards to coordinates 200, 100 for a very unusual sight. There you will find a woodland mansion that uses a church building and a village hut as its pillars.
The hut almost entirely spawns inside the garden room, which isn't that bad. But the church suffers miserably and has almost no free space left inside.
You will spawn in the middle of badlands biome with several exposed mineshafts around.
Travel to coordinates 300, 150 for a desert village that stands on the border with bumboo jungle that hides a temple right next to it.
The area behind the village has one of the aforementioned exposed mineshafts you should definitely explore.
Spawn between a ruined portal at coordinates -250, 200 and a plains village at coordinates 150, 100.
The portal will take you straight to the plateau with a bastion remnant structure located in the basalt deltas biome.
The area surrounding the remnant overflows with lava so be extra careful.
If you want to take it easier, then spawn in a peaceful taiga village on the ocean shore with an exposed shipwreck nearby.
Once you get into good gear and weapons you can take on a pillager outpost up north at coordinates -650, -250.
If you can take it, then just keep going north into the desert biome looking for even more adventures.
Looking for a nice chilly overhang? Here is one at spawn right next to a desert village with weaponsmith and a quick access to ocean.
In case you need more resources, you can always raid a desert temple at coordinates 50, -150 or even visit another village that stands at coordinates -250, -400. Either way you can find there everything you need for your survival game.
