Get ready for some gold digging, as this seed allows you to get a fair amount of gold right from the get-go!
Once you spawn, you’ll be facing a ravine, featuring several blocks of gold! The only issue you will face is reaching them, but that shouldn’t be too hard, seeing as this is Minecraft. Hence the name, the Awesome Gold Ravine Seed!
World Type: Default
Spawn: X: 222 / Y: 64 / Z: 213
Minecraft version: Minecraft 1.8.1+ (tested in 1.8.3)
If you head west after getting the gold, you will find another ravine in some marshland, and while this one is pretty devoid of gold, it has plenty of iron and coal to help you get started. Beware though, there are also some endermen and creepers down here, even in the daytime.
Heading east from spawn will make you find a witches hut, which means you might get lucky and find some ingredients, if you want to try defeating the witch within.
South-east from spawn if the first large NPC village you will find, and this one also features a blacksmith, as well as several fields of food. The blacksmith has a chest with some minor useful items, such as three apples, three iron ingots, two iron helmets, and some gold horse armor.
If you head north-east from here, you should eventually find a cool mountain with a lava fall, which also has another smaller NPC village in the background, although this one doesn’t have any loot, but plenty of villagers to trade with.
Once here, I recommend going south-west, as that will take you past a very cool natural lake, with a some cool hollowed out mountains that party hang over parts of the lake, it is a very scenic area, that is just begging to be utilized in some cool builds in one way or another.
Back to spawn, if you start heading directly west, you should eventually stumble upon a completely floating island. It doesn’t float high above the ground, and it is not very large, but it is still kinda cool nonetheless, and a mildly interesting sight.
That was all the interesting things I could find in the near vicinity of the spawn here in the Awesome Gold Ravine Seed, check it out for yourself if your interest has been piqued, it should work for any Minecraft version 1.8.1 and up.
