Welcome to the Valheim tutorial for players who want to explore different map seeds. In Valheim, every server has a unique map seed that determines the layout of the world, including the location of resources, biomes, and monsters. By looking at different seeds, you can ensure that there are plenty of resources available before you even start playing your server.

In this tutorial, we will take you step-by-step through the process of exploring different map seeds and how to use them to your advantage using the valheim-world tool by wd40bomber7. We'll show you how to find the best seeds for your playstyle, whether you're looking for a specific resource or biome.

I recommend that you only look at the map seed before you start the server. This way, you will know for certain something is there, but you will still have to explore and search to find it. This keeps the game fun and enjoyable. Try not to use the map seed tool to look at the map of a game you are already playing, because this will ruin your immersion.

Let's get started! You can explore maps of valheim seeds using the website You begin by entering a the name of the seed you wish to explore. The name of the seed could be a word or a random string of characters. In the video, I use one of my favorite seeds, simply "haseeb". People often use strings such as "3jduu23" which are just random characters.

If you do not know the seed of the world you want to get a map from, it is possible to load your world onto the website directly. You can do this by finding your valheim world save, which is usually located in User\AppData\LocalLow. AppData is usually a hidden folder so you might have to type the directory exactly in order to access it.

One of my favorite seeds is "haseeb". Explore it! This seed has loads of HUGE continents, with lots of challenging biomes such as plains, mistlands, and mountains. Its definitely a more challenging seed but that makes the end-game so much more enjoyable!

Heres the website you can use:
