You can replace the 1 with any number you like. That’s the seed number used to create the world. Different numbers will lead to different worlds. (The screenshot above is from right near the spawn point in world #1.)
Looks like it also defaults to wireframe on, textures off, shaders off. That’s dumb. Sorry. In the console:
That should put you in a good place. Also use:
