Minecraft fans have at long last found the world seed for Minecraft’s most notorious world – the map that shows out of background behind the game’s title screen.
After a fan-powered project commenced on June 14, 2020, players have been working cooperatively to attempt to find the world’s seed – the particular string of numbers that creates a specific one of a kind Minecraft world. After the project lead, Tomlacko, learned “as much as [they] could about the panorama and it’s world (the version, world axis and the exact Z coordinate using clouds)”, they shared their discoveries on the Discord server of Minecraft@Home.
From that point, volunteers gave their inert PC time to “advance Minecraft-related research”.
“BIG NEWS! We have found the SEED of Minecraft’s title-screen background PANORAMA!” cries the title of the Reddit thread that broke the news throughout the end of the week.
“Everyone should be familiar with this world. It’s the one that always appeared on Minecraft’s main-menu (title-screen), blurred and slowly rotating around,” the post continues. “It first appeared in 2011 for Minecraft Beta 1.8 and stayed for many years, until it was only recently replaced in 1.13 and every version after that.
“And nobody ever knew the seed… until now!”
As indicated by the Reddit thread, in under 24 hours in the wake of propelling the panorama application, a volunteer host on Minecraft@Home discovered this seed using “currently we have found a 22 block high one!” Tomlacko says.
