| In the PC (Java) edition, you can ultra-customize
terrain generation: what biomes to use, percentage of
lakes and lava lakes, etc. In the bedrock edition, you have
none of that. But you can still "pick your own world" via
the seed when you click "Advanced". All you need is some
guinea pig, like me, to try out a bunch of seeds and
inventory what comes up. There's a lot of "miracle" seeds
on YouTube and other websites that give you double
villages, abandoned mineshafts, rare biomes, easy access
to diamonds, etc. Sometimes, though, that makes the game
TOO easy. Minecraft is always full of surprises when you
least expect it, and the "common" seeds below are just
waiting for someone to go in and find them. (Of course, I
did just so happen do stumble upon "miracle" seed 1221,
which is also tons of fun.) Note: To find something in
particular, like "village", press CTRL+F to open your
browser's search dialog.
Note: All seeds will work with version 0.9 and higher (use
'infinite' world type).

point has 10 iron near opening and coal not too
far in. Cave leads to large abandoned mineshaft;
buried deep in the cave/mineshaft catacombs I
found 3 diamonds (lots of lava to get around to
get there). From spawn if you head due northwest

river at junction of rivers; thick oak forest
w/giant mushrooms nearby. Double village is short
distance due south. From the 2nd (desert) village,

third village at forest / savannah boundry. From
back at spawn, head due east for a while, past
Pac-Man pond and over savannah plateau, then go
southeast to find a fourth village, cave with
exposed coal, lava lake, and ocean. From back at
spawn, head due northeast to pumpkin patch, then
continue due northeast across dirty water swamp
w/giant mushrooms, then through thick oak forest

river at the right and following the river by the
desert), and you'll eventually get to MESA spires
(including an amazing "mesa spire cave") and the
