10 Amazing Minecraft seeds that work on Windows 10 edition

Switch over to the new version and can't get your favorite seeds to work? We've got you covered with the best seeds compatible with Minecraft's Windows 10 edition!

[Take me back to GameSkinny's Ultimate Minecraft Seed Guide]

For those who adopted Windows 10 early and took advantage of the free upgrade from previous editions of the OS, you may have noticed your favorite seeds no longer look the same (or even work at all) in the latest edition of Minecraft. The Minecraft Windows 10 beta version is modeled after the Pocket Edition, making it more streamlined to function seamlessly between PC and mobile devices running the new operating system. While that's handy for switching between tablets and desktops or playing multiplayer, the new version doesn't always play nice with older seeds.

These 10 awesome seeds – all completely compatible with the Windows 10 beta edition - will quickly become some of your favorites with their diverse lineup of biomes and inhabitants. Remember, though, these seed names are all case sensitive, so type them exactly as they appear! If a seed isn't working, check out our guide on seed errors.

Haven't grabbed the new Minecraft beta edition yet? If you already have the PC version of Minecraft, you get the Windows 10 edition at no cost, while anyone who is just getting into the Minecraft craze can jump in for only $9.99 through the Windows store. For those on the cutting edge, the Windows 10 version will also soon be adapted so you can experience Minecraft in a whole new way, with Oculus Rift support coming early next year.

Spawn Near A Double Biome

Minecraft double biome

Seed: shadowscythe

Popping you straight in a populated village with plenty of people and animals to interact with, this nifty little seed features two very different types of terrain right next to one another – one with high desert mesas to climb and one with rolling fields and majestic forests. Get tired of endless desert red? Just jump over to the other side for a field of green. From buildings to rivers to wide open spaces, this one is a ready made fantasy world waiting to be explored.

Spawn Near A Sky High Treescape

Minecraft forest trees

Seed: Smellovision

Spawning next to a giant treehouse, this hilariously titled but no-nonsense seed lets you see the world of Minecraft from high in the boughs of a great forest. When you get tired of mining blocks of leaves and spelling out words in the treeline, there's some interesting locations to be discovered on the ground level as well, like some small pools that seem to double as public baths / watering holes for the local fauna.

Spawn Near Both Taiga And Forest

Seed: 1410403532

One half winter wonderland, one half sprawling forest, this innovative and visually appealing seed has opposing worlds colliding with two biomes lined up next to one another. With taiga meeting the forest, this dual style seed is populated by towering monoliths on both sides just begging to be mined to see if you can reach the very tops of the tallest spires.

Spawn Near A Huge Ocean

Seed: Water World

While it may not have Kevin Costner or Dennis Hopper, this aquatic style seed will let you walk the plank and explore a vast underwater world before drowning. If you're up for a serious swim (or you have some mad crafting skills), you just might find a way off the forlorn island and make it across to the larger, more abundantly populated area that's tantalizingly close but separated by a gulf of deep blue sea.

Spawn Near A Huge Underground Cavern Network

Seed: super pig

For a place called “super pig,” there sure are a lot of cows in this gigantic mountain riddled through with endless cavernous expanses. The side of the major landscape feature feels like a Final Fantasy Tactics battle waiting to happen, while the miles of mine shafts lacing like Swiss cheese are your very own personal Ultima Underworld to explore, blocky style.

Spawn Near Extremely Tall Mountains

Seed: jakanddaxter

Fancy a long walk? Named after the classic Playstation platforming franchise, this seed is filled to the brim with sprawling hills that Just. Keep. Going. Chase sheep that seem to always have better footing than you up and down an infinite expanse of never ending steps. If you make it to the top you'll be rewarded with some pumpkins, just don't lose your step, because it's a long way down...

Spawn Near Rivers And Ravines

Seed: -455

A visually appealing seed that speaks of the grandeur of nature without having gigantic features that scrape the sky, this seed is all about ravines and valleys. There's shallow rivers galore and a whole lot of flora to pick up, not to mention some interesting tree layouts that let you travel across wide areas without ever actually setting foot on the ground.

Spawn Near The Coastline

Seed: 371910

An extremely diverse seed, this one starts you on a peninsula with quick access to nearby islands, deep water areas, and a huge inland with plenty to be discovered. Head away from the coast into the mainlaind and, besides finding plenty of flora and fauna, eventually you'll leave the standard trees and hillsides for a colder, snowier clime.

Spawn Near An Ocean City

Seed: 1413755523

If you liked the “Water World” seed but would prefer something with a more urban feel, this interesting little seed plops you into a city in the middle of the sea! With wooden planks running from building to building, there's not a whole lot to harvest or work with here, making survival mode a real challenge, and creative mode a ton of fun to simply explore across the chains of floating cities.

Spawn Near Savanna

Seed: xnxx

Apparently named after a porn site, this entertaining Minecraft world has a wide open savanna biome to explore, along with some massive, incredibly steep mesas. If you do manage to make your way to the top, there are some amazing vistas to discover along with some massive trees that let you go ever further skyward.
