How can I find the actual seed code for my map?
When a map is created randomly, how can we find the seed that it has generated ?
I want to find some cool map in single player and when I'll find one, I want to get that seed and create it on my SMP server.
In 1.8 they are going to implement the ability to see the level seed by pressing F3
@ProSay Having played the 1.8 pre-release, I can confirm that. You should make it an answer.
@ProSay Not by number he isn't. When Minecraft is updated, you'll notice questions here tend to get updated answers too.
In 1.3 and above you can type
/seedinto the console to view it.
However, this is not as good because usually you want the world seed to create another world like it, to share with a friend, and you can't copy/paste it.
For pre-1.3 versions (and for if you want easy copy/paste) go to seedscope.net, then upload your
level.datfile, and it will show you your seed.
Ah, *where* in the F3 screen is it? Is the feature still in version 1.3.2? I'm not seeing it, for some reason.
@Cyclops Server admins have an option to hide the seed from the debug screen. (This avoids the problem of players scouting the map in single-player.) Are you on a multiplayer server?
@SevenSidedDie, although I'm playing single-player, as I understand it - version 1.3 switched the code to pure multi-player, and faking single-player. Does that mean the seed is hidden by default? Is there any way to unhide it? Wups - I just noticed that the answer was edited to show shift-F3. I'll have to try that when I get home.
