I really want a superflat seed with a ton of useful ores which are easy to find. How do I create a seed, and what programs do I use?

Seeds are not “created”, they are found by trying them. The seed is called that because it is the seed for a pseudorandom number generator which is then used to determine all of the attributes of the world; it is not possible to design a seed to produce a desired result.

Type something for the seed, see if you like the world, and if not, try again with a different seed. Or look for seeds other people have tried; there are many web sites which claim to provide such information.

(However, I note that you mention wanting a superflat world. Superflat is a separately chosen option, not determined by the seed, and Minecraft: Pocket Edition does not have an option for superflat world generation.)

Ok thanks.. I hope that Mojang soon allows that option in the pocket edition though. – Neffer_23 Feb 12 '13 at 22:40

Get pocketinveditor off of for shared. Do edit terrain and click slect whole worl replace blocks then click the top browse button and click air. Then the bottom browse button and click what ever youwant to be super flat like diamonds grass sand stone all of that hope this helped!

A link to the program and some punctuation would make this a better answer. – kotekzot Mar 28 '13 at 7:22

Well if your looking for a super flat world then you've come to the right person!

Seed:blank This seed allows you to enter a super flat world so try it!

Just tried it: does not work. Though blank is a neat half-frozen ocean seed, and there are some impressive mountains and valleys on the edge of the map at one side. It's definitely not super-flat though. – SevenSidedDie Apr 1 '13 at 18:32
This is completely wrong. Leaving the seed blank simply means that Minecraft will use a random seed. – MBraedley Apr 1 '13 at 19:19
