When a Minecraft world is first created, the world generates biomes, villages, and other structures at random. Having this random generation is one of the exciting parts about creating a new Minecraft save as you never know what interesting structures/biomes you may find. However, not everyone prefers to have this generation to be random. Many times there’s a specific world players would like to load into. This is where the world’s seed comes into play. Every world upon generation is given a seed; this seed is a random string of numbers that will determine how the world generates its biomes, blocks, structures, etc. Seeds apply the same to a world created on a server as it does in singleplayer. If you own a server, it’s likely you may want to generate a world using a custom seed either from an online website or from your single-player world. This can be done very easily and we will be walking you through the steps on how you can find your current seed and how you can set your Minecraft Server’s seed.

Builds from my previous world aren’t showing up
Please keep in mind that the seed affects only the world generation/default structures. It does not save any man-made objects or buildings.
The seed didn’t change after I restarted the server
If your seed did not change, it’s likely the world was not reset correctly. Make sure that you stop the server, change the world field, and start it back up. Also, make sure that the seed is set in the server settings. If this file was not saved properly, the seed may revert back to blank.
