That was definitely the case at some point but I don't think it has been for a while.. I can't find a good confirmation either way though.Alice3173 wrote: ↑Mon Mar 25, 2019 8:57 pmI could be remembering things incorrectly (it's been months since I recall reading that) but I believe that the seed you use is actually the spawn location. From what I recall reading awhile back though, the overall world is actually the same regardless of the seed. Seed just sets where you spawn in the world.
Regardless, the world was never actually always the same *everywhere* because the spawn location is generated specially, modifying the usual algorithm (starting resources, no biters right on top of you, guaranteed lake for water), so even if the rest of the world is the same, somewhere being or not being a player spawn location makes a difference
