Do realms have seeds?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

Realms is a multiplayer service provided by Mojang for Minecraft that allows players to create and join servers hosted by Mojang. It provides a convenient way for players to collaborate and play together, regardless of their physical location.

When it comes to seeds in Minecraft, the seed is essentially a unique code that generates the terrain and other features of a Minecraft world. It acts as a sort of “blueprint” for the world, determining things like the distribution of biomes, structures, and resources.

In the Java Edition of Minecraft, players have the ability to view the seed of a world by typing “/seed” in the chat. This can be useful for sharing interesting or unique world generation with others. However, in Bedrock Edition, which includes the mobile, console, and Windows 10 versions of Minecraft, the ability to view the seed is not available by default.

Now, let’s specifically address the question at hand: Do realms have seeds?

In the case of Java Edition Realms, the answer is yes. Each realm has its own unique seed, just like any other Minecraft world. The owner of the realm can view the seed by accessing the world settings. This can be done by clicking on the pencil icon next to the realm name, then selecting “Game” from the menu on the left side of the screen. The seed will be displayed under the “World Seed” section.

On the other hand, in Bedrock Edition Realms, the seed is not visible to players when playing on a realm. This means that players cannot access or view the seed of a Bedrock Edition realm, regardless of their role in the realm (owner, operator, or regular player). This functionality is simply not available in the Bedrock Edition Realms interface.

It’s worth noting that this lack of visibility for the seed in Bedrock Edition Realms does not mean that the world does not have a seed. Every Minecraft world, regardless of the platform or version, is generated based on a seed. The seed is still used to generate the world, but it is just not visible or accessible to players in Bedrock Edition Realms.

The visibility of seeds in Minecraft Realms depends on the edition you are playing. In Java Edition Realms, the seed is visible and can be accessed through the realm settings. However, in Bedrock Edition Realms, the seed is not visible to players when playing on a realm.
