How to make a flat world in Minecraft Bedrock and Java Editions

When a Minecraft player creates a new world, they have many options to customize it. One such customization option is world type selection.

One world type in the game is known as a “flat” or “super flat” world. Flat worlds are very different from standard worlds. They are incredibly thin from the surface to the bedrock layer.

Additionally, many structures cannot be generated in flat worlds, and surviving is considered significantly more difficult due to the lack of basic resources. However, flat worlds can still be incredibly fun and offer maximum space to build.

The good news for Minecraft players hoping to set up a flat world is that the process is incredibly simple. However, it’s also worth noting that in the Java Edition, players will have additional customization options for their flat world that Bedrock players don’t have access to (by default).

Regardless, flat worlds in Bedrock Edition can be great fun to build even without adjustments, and provide a challenge for survival-oriented players.

While flat worlds may not suit all player tastes, they are at least worth a try. This is especially true for players who like the creative mode, as the world type gives them essentially unlimited build space without having to clear any land.

Survival mode players who are used to the default world generation might want to give it a try as well. The reduced resources and limited structures can make survival much more difficult than it would normally be.
