Minecraft fans are known for creating fantastic creations that are either available through the Minecraft Marketplace or free downloads from a variety of websites. This is partly due to Minecraft’s increase in popularity of the quarantine and pandemic. Minecraft’s Active monthly players went from 126 million to close to 132 million players in a short three to four month. This rapid increase is partly due to the players being stuck at home for a considerable amount of time.
Minecraft fans recently found the original title screen for Minecraft; Minecraft Players have found this out after Nine Years of searching for this iconic world. Minecraft seed is primarily very tough to find as they are a string of numbers and coding, which is randomly generated. Since these seeds are random strings of numbers, this means that the combinations are virtually endless.
Minecraft fans have found another Minecraft seed that they have seen in a variety of places through the Minecraft Menus.
There are two places Minecraft players can see this world is in the Minecraft menus; the first location is as the image for the default resource pack that Minecraft uses.
The second location that players can see this world in the Minecraft menus is the server selection screen; this image is in black and white until the hosts select an icon for the server.
The Minecraft Youtuber SalC1 started this search, and the first of many findings is that the screen was added to the game with the launch of the alpha version 1.2.2 of Minecraft. The Youtuber SalC1 released a tweet showcasing how they found the seed and said, “This is Real.”
SalC1 also released a video showcasing how he and thousands of other Minecraft players were able to find the seed for this iconic image.
He goes into detail about how they used AI to upscale the image quality and how volunteers even donated the use of their GPUs to brute force through a total of 281 Trillion different world seeds until they were able to find the correct one!
The seed for this iconic world is 3257840388504953787, and the famous hill is located at the coordinated are x = 49 and z = 0.
I think every player should see this to see where the iconic image came from and how much work the Minecraft community is willing to do to see their goals achieved!
