If you’re itching to check out the new underwater temples in the upcoming update, here’s an opportunity for you!
This seed requires Minecraft 1.8 to get the correct one, so you will need to open Minecraft in the latest Snapshot version.
If you haven’t created a Snapshot profile yet, follow these instructions to easily create one:
- Open the Minecraft Launcher
- Click on either the New Profile (recommended) or Edit Profile button
- Once you have done that, select a name for the profile, for instance “‘Your name’ Snapshot”
- Under “Version Selection”, tick the box that says “Enable experimental development versions (“snapshots”)
- You will get a warning telling you that it may not be stable and can corrupt worlds, say yes to this (and use your “normal” profile for other worlds, to be safe, you might corrupt them if not)
- Click “Save Profile” and select the new profile
- Launch the game (after installing this map), and you should be able to play it without any issues.
Co-ordinates for the Underwater Temple are (you will probably need to teleport here, as it is quite far away from spawn):
The temple itself contains plenty of Guardians, the new mob included in the update, as well as wet sponges (you can use a furnace to dry these, allowing you to reuse them to scoop up water).
It is a deadly area, with many Guardians, mostly the smaller variant, but also some of the larger, deadlier guardians who can take almost half of your health in one hit if you are unarmored.
Here are some additional details about the seed:
World Type: Default (tested in Minecraft 1.8 Snapshot 14w25b)
Spawn: X: -128.500 / Y: 66 / Z: 245.500
It is pretty interesting to see the new mobs in action, they are very hostile towards anything, even harmless defenseless squid. The temple itself is fun to explore and it is easy to get lost in it, which usually leads to drowning. So be careful!
The seed also gives you a great opportunity to try out the new sponge mechanics, as they are very useful in helping making the temple more accessible.
