Villages in Minecraft are home to villagers who are very important to trade. Villages are difficult to find as they only appear in certain natural areas or biomes. You can find the village on foot or using a third-party program. With its help, you can analyze your world and find villages. Flying in creative mode is another quick way to find villages in the Minecraft world.
Method 1 of 4: Finding villages
Step 1. Use the seed that will allow you to start the game near the village
The quickest way to find a village is to start a new game with a seed that will ensure you appear in the game near the village. Seeds are a set of symbols that are used to generate the Minecraft world. Entering certain seeds will result in the creation of the same world. In other words, seeds can be used to create a world with a village near the starting location. Minecraft for PC, consoles and Minecraft PE have their own separate seeds, but they all work on the same principle.
- Find out your Minecraft version by looking at the lower left corner of the menu screen. Each version of the game has its own seeds, so before you can find the seed you want, you need to find out the version of Minecraft.
- Enter the phrase "[Version number] village seed" into the search engine. You will get a lot of results with different seeds that start the game near the village. Also, look for seeds in forum posts, YouTube videos, blogs, and various Minecraft fan sites. The seeds for the computer and mobile versions of the game, as well as the versions for consoles, differ from each other.
- To enter a seed, open the More Options or Advanced menu on the world creation screen.
Step 2. When creating a new world, enable the Large Biomes option
If you decide to create a new world in Creative or Survival Mode, enable the Large Biomes option to give the villagers more room to spawn. When creating a new world, be sure to also enable the Generate Structures option, otherwise the inhabitants will not appear.
Step 3. Explore the biomes of the plain, savanna and desert
Only these three biomes can spawn residents. In version 1.10, inhabitants can also be found in taiga biomes.
- Plain biomes are mostly unhill and grassy. These are the most common biomes for residents.
- Savannah biomes can be identified by dry grass and acacias.
- Desert biomes are made of sand and have cacti growing on them.
- Spruce and fern grow on the biomes of the taiga. Wolves can also be found here.
Step 4. Explore the Oak Forest biome in Minecraft PE
Villages are rare in the Oak Forest biome in Minecraft PE, so look elsewhere.
Step 5. Continue your search
Villages spawn in random places and there is no surefire way to find them except with third-party tools. To improve your chances of finding a village, search all compatible biomes for it.
To speed up the search, use another mode of transport, such as saddling a horse or a pig
Method 2 of 4: Village Finder Tool
Step 1. Search the internet for a village search tool
Game fans have come up with a tool that analyzes your seed or save and finds villages for you. Then you can take the obtained coordinates and use them to find a village in your game. Note that the accuracy of such programs is about 66%, so that one village out of three will not be located where the program indicated to you.
- One of the more popular village search tools is Chunkbase. To use it, follow this link: chunkbase.com/apps/village-finder. Launch an updated browser, such as Chrome, to take full advantage of the search engine's features.
- There are currently no village finder tools suitable for Minecraft PE.
Step 2. Enter your seed or upload a save file
The fastest way to load your world is to enter the current seed. If you are playing on a computer, you can download the level.dat file located in the% appdata% \. Minecraft \ saves folder.
To find the seed of the current game, enter / seed in the chat window. If you are playing a multiplayer game, ask your admin for the seed
Step 3. Remove the card
After you load the seed, brown dots representing villages will start to appear on the grid. If you zoom in too close, you may not see anything. Remove the map by rolling the mouse wheel until you see dots.
Step 4. Remember the location of the villages in order to check their presence in the game later
Change coordinates by dragging the mouse cursor over the map. Move the mouse over one of the points to see its coordinates in the game. Since the map shows all the possible locations of the villages, you should memorize a few places in case these villages were not generated.
Step 5. Find your coordinates in the game
When you return to the game, find your coordinates. This will help you find villages. You can also use the teleportation command and move directly to the village without exploring any places for this.
- If you are playing on a computer, press the F3 key to find out your coordinates. If you play Minecraft PE, to find out your coordinates, you will have to use third-party programs. In the console version, you can see your coordinates on the map. You will find more information in the article "How to Determine Coordinates in Minecraft".
- To move to a specific location, enable cheats and enter / tp name X Y Z. To teleport to Minecraft PE, use the inventory editor. In the console version, you can only teleport to other players. More information can be found in the article "How to teleport to Minecraft".
Step 6. Check another village if the first one is not there
The search engine will display all the possible locations of the villages, but only two-thirds of them will appear in the game itself. This means that according to the obtained coordinates, the village may not appear. In this case, just go to the next coordinates.
In the console versions of the game, you may come across some rather strange villages. So, for example, in one of them there will be no houses, but only one well. The village finder may not notice some villages in the console version of the game. Therefore, finding villages in the console version is more problematic
Method 3 of 4: Creative Mode
Step 1. Open the survival map in creative mode
One of the easiest ways to find villages in an existing game is to switch to creative mode, in which you can fly and find villages. The process of switching to another mode depends on the version of the game:
- Computer version - Enter 1 into the chat window to enter creative mode. To do this, you must have cheats enabled.
- Mobile version - you need to load your level in the inventory editor and change the mode using the editor's tools.
- Console Version - You cannot switch from Survival to Creative in this version.
Step 2. Start flying
When you're in creative mode, start flying by pressing the jump button twice. Press Space twice to start flying. Double click the jump button in the mobile version of the game.
- Hold the jump button while flying to climb up. To get down, use the squat button.
- Press the jump button twice in flight to stop flying.
Step 3. Find suitable biomes
With the help of flight, you can quickly move around the world. Use this to find biomes that may contain villages: plains, savannah, desert and taiga (since version 1.10).
Use this method in conjunction with the previous ones to check multiple locations from a search engine program. This is much faster than checking every location on foot
Step 4. Check the entire biome
Villages can be anywhere in the biome, so explore it completely before moving on to the next location.
Step 5. Return to survival mode
When you find a suitable village, return to survival mode and continue the game.
- Computer version - Enter 0 into the chat window to return to survival mode.
- Mobile version - use the inventory editor to return to survival mode.
Method 4 of 4: Version 1.11+
Step 1. Start playing in the world with the Generate Structures option enabled
Since the / locate command does not work, you will have to use the 16w39a seed
Step 2. Enter / locate Village into the chat window
The village will be located at the specified coordinates.
