Minecraft Original Title Screen Seed

Posted on

Have you ever played Minecraft Java Edition? If so, you may be familiar with the title screen of it which is a blurred and slowly rotating world in the background. Are you curious with this title screen seed? If you are curious about it, here we will inform you about it.

This seed first appeared in 2011. It ran from beta 1.8 to version 1.13. However, no one knew the seed for it. It means that no one knew the string of characters which are used to produce this title screen world in the game itself. Players have wondered and you may also have wondered about it. You are curious what seed you have to put to be able to find the exact place that so many people have seen before.


Thankfully, a group of players found the seed for Minecraft’s opening panorama on 18th, 2020. Do you want to know what seed it is? Here are the details about it.

  • Version: Beta 1.7.3
  • The Coordinates of it is: X = 61.48 ~ , Y = 75, and Z = -68.73 ~
  • Seed: 2151901553968352745 OR 8091867987493326313

In a post on the Minecraft sub, Redditor Tomlacko explained how the team worked out the background world seed. He began by working out the world axis and the exact Z coordinate by using the clouds seen in the panorama. Then, he combined this research with another project which was devoted to finding the seed of a famous pack.png image of Minecraft which is the grassy hill with trees and also a beach waterfront icon which is seen in the resource pack selection screen and the selection screen of the server.

However, it was only when Minecraft@Home got involved that this panorama project truly kicked off. Minecraft@Home checked every possible world for features that exactly matched what is visible in the title screen. The project began on 14th June and less than 24 hours later someone running the Minecraft@Home program could find the seed that produces that world and also the coordinates of that specific area. One of the people who found the seed, a user named Earthcomputer uploaded a video.

Even though this world has been seen by a lot of people over the course of almost a decade, it is only now the players of Minecraft are able to explore it. The way Minecraft’s world generation works is such that if you and your friend use the similar seed, then you will both get the similar world to be able to explore. So, if you find an awesome world with a seed of Eurogamer for instance, you could allow other people to experience the similar landscape without them needing to connect through multiplayer. They just need to type in the seed Eurogamer when beginning up their own new game. Currently, all players of Minecraft are able to explore its iconic title screen world.

It can be said that this is a wonderful find, however the group who found the seed are not resting on their laurels. Now, they are using the Minecraft@Home project to be able to search for the tallest cactus.
