If you play Minecraft, there is an excellent chance that you've seen this picture before: enter image description here

This image is Minecraft's cover art. Just recently, I've been starting to wonder: is there a seed for this picture? While some of the structures seen in this picture are hand-built, the rest of the terrain looks very natural. It would be very weird if someone built all of this by hand. Mojang just probably generated a world, built some stuff, and screenshotted this picture while on a mountain in 3rd person before letting it run through a software that makes this image like this and not like what vanilla Minecraft would look like. They might've also used a texture pack and some mods to take this screenshot. They might have used a software to make this screenshot, but it would've taken a long time to do so, so there is a very low chance of that being the case. I'm just curious - is there a seed for this world, or is there a world for this picture so that we can recreate the picture or play on this world?

    I’d guess that this was art and not some kind of shaders and editing on a world, but also isn’t this the bedrock logo? I’m pretty sure this is the bedrock logo as its the logo of Minecraft Bedrock on PlayStation 4 at least.

    The only way we know of to brute-force these seeds takes ages. Try asking the Minecraft@Home people.

  • SalC1's discord is where people involved in seed cracking congregate. discord.salc1.com The Minecraft@Home team cooperates with them, but they'd send you there to get the project started anyway, and contribute the CPU time later once the groundwork is done.

    @Penguin The foreground and middle-plane are art, but the far background seems to be regular Minecraft.

  • I am voting to close this question since this is might not actually be a seed at all and answers might be opinions to this image.

If you mean the title screen, the seed is 2151901553968352745 to see the title screen for real in Minecraft and interact with it. The cover art is just art, as @SF stated. The background is actual Minecraft, though we don't know the seed for the background. I hope this helped.
