Minecraft Seed Finder (Viewer) refers to a tool provided by Chunk Base called Seed Map. This one is available for a lot of versions, including Java 1.14, Java 1.14 (LB), and Bedrock 1.14. If you want to use it, the first thing that you have to do is to go to the official website of Chunk Base.
When you are there, go to Apps and then find the Seed Map, which is also usually called Seed Finder. How to use the Seed Map?
Several features are not totally accurate such as locations can be wrong or missing. Some structures can sometimes fail to generate in game.
For technical reasons, you have to know the seed of your world to use the Seed Map, unless you want to find a seed for a new world.
Seed Map uses some relatively new web technologies so some features may be disabled for older browsers.
- Seed Selection:
The first thing that you need to do is to choose a seed and version. Feel free to type in manually or load it from your savegame. In addition, you should also know that a seed is always a number.
- Dimension and Feature Selection:
Below the seeds and versions, you can select the dimension you want to view. It will affect which features can be enabled. To toggle some features, please click on the icons in the features box just above the map. You are also able to expand and collapse features by clicking the arrow located on the side of the box to show the complete names of the features, as well as some more options. Keep in mind that some features will only show if you zoomed in enough. It will keep the app fast and to not flood it with icons. It will show a warning and all affected features that will be highlighted once that happens.
After you have entered all the options you are able to start using the map. If you want to scroll, you can use the arrow keys while your mouse cursor points at the map, or move your mouse while holding down the left mouse button. You are able to use the slider below the map or your mousewheel for zooming. The lower inputs let you go to a certain point of the map and set a marker there.
- Selecting Structure Locations:
You are able to click or tap on the icons on the map to see the exact coordinate in the game. For some structures, there are some additional details shown.
When you use a touch-enabled device, you will see an extra option for enabling or disabling touchscreen control appeared below the map. With that option enabled, you are able to drag the map with your finger to navigate, you are able to pitch to zoom in and out, and you are also able to tap and hold to set a marker on the map. By double tapping on the map, you are able to quickly enable or disable the functionality.
