It is very important to find villages in Minecraft if you want to survive. Exploring for many hours without success can be an absurd danger! That's why in this guide you'll discover 4 ways to find villages in Minecraft, with and without cheats. See how below and everything you need to find the perfect shelter.
First step: enable the necessary options to find villages
Before searching and finding villages in Minecraft, consider several details. Unless you play with an already created seed, you will need to enable the appropriate options when creating a new world in Survival Mode.
The first option to activate is generate structures. Without this enabled, villages won't exist, so of course you won't find any! The other option to activate is allow cheats. While it is not necessary to use cheats to find villages, they will make the whole process easier below.
As to kind of world, putting it in "Default" is already good. Just keep in mind that there are some biomes where villages are more likely to spawn:
Plains are the biome where the most villages appear, so the Extra Flat option in the World type can make it easier for more plains to come. This means that the landscapes do not vary much, but it guarantees a greater opportunity to find shelter.
With all that in mind, here are the methods for finding villages!
1st method: go to Chunkbase website
On the Chunkbase page you will find a powerful tool for finding villages, although it is not entirely accurate.
If you have already created a world or downloaded one already created, the most recommended is to use the Seed number. For PC Java version, you can use command / seed on the chat console to know the number of the world you are playing. Write it down!
If you cannot use this command, after creating the world return to the main menu. Select your game, click "Redo", click "More options in the world" and you will see your game starting number.
Once you know this number, put it in the "Seed" slot on the Chunkbase website. Make sure you put the version of the game that matches yours. You will see the option below the coordinate map on the right. Then click on the blue "Find villages!" and a series of dots will appear. These points are the villages in an approximate position.
If you want to know the coordinates of one of these points, place your mouse over them. Take a look at the XZ numbers shown at the bottom left of the map and write them down or keep your browser open while you play. With this method, you can already get an idea of where villages exist.
2nd method: use teleportation and village location tricks
If you already know the full or partial coordinates of some villages, there is a perfect trick, which is the command / teleport Where / tp.
This command is divided into different sections: / tp [Your name] XY Z. That is, you will need to write the name first, always respecting the upper and lower case letters. Then write each coordinate number in order. If it contains a negative number, don't forget the "-" symbol!
If you're in the game and don't want to use the Chunkbase website, you can choose the command / locate . For PC and in Spanish, the trick is to locate Aldea , respecting the capital letter. On cell phones or English versions, the trick is /locate the village.
What this command does is locate the village closest to your position. However, it is common for you to receive only the values of the XZ coordinates, without the Y position. This also happens with Chunkbase.
When you want to teleport, you'll have to try your luck with different Y values. If you get buried, dig fast! And try not to put the number too high, or you risk dying from the fall.
3rd method: use a specific seed
If you don't want to create a new world, you can choose to use a Seed you know well. There are several on the internet, and in many cases they are full of villages.
Some start directly in a village. If you choose this method, when creating a world, make sure you correctly place the corresponding Seed number.
4th method: explore yourself!
The last method is the most laborious of all, but it can be the most fun. It's a lot of effort to have to go scouting around villages yourself, but this is the real Minecraft experience!
We only recommend that you mount a fast mount, so that exploration is more effective. Remember to look more into the plains, savannas, deserts, and taiga biomes, because that's where you'll find villages.
A useful tip here is to open the chat console and type /game mode creative to activate Creative mode. In this mode, press the jump button twice. This will allow you to float and see the world around you better. After all, it's easier to find villages from above.
Another way to write this trick is to replace "creative" with "c" or "1". If you want to go back to Survival mode, type / survival in game mode. You can change "survival" to "s" or "0".
