Stronghold Seed

#1ISendOutMarioPosted 6/10/2012 11:41:40 AM
Hey, So I've never actually seen a stronghold. All I want to do is see one... so does anybody know a seed with a stronghold real close to the spawn? For 1.2.5.

Strongholds cant be close to spawn. They are generated in a triangle around spawn. You can use Amidst to find one:

Actually, they can be close to spawn.

Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3g80scaGJ0
About 100 blocks away

Of course, that's a very rare case. However, the End portal room is the thing that is spawned and the rest generates around it, so you could theoretically dig straight down at your spawn point and hit a hallway far away from the portal room.

I just found my first stronghold, it just took a little looking and an Eye of Ender. You'll need to kill a blaze and an Enderman to craft it. Throw it in the air about 600-700 blocks from the center of the map and follow where it points.

My stronghold turned out to be almost straight north from the origin of the map, around 650 blocks away. Now that I found the first one the other ones should be really easy to find.

SO i made a new world just to see a stronghold... Man oh ma, that was amazing. The whole thing was like a giant maze, and there were zombies and skeletons spawning everywhere. Creepers too. I loved the fact that it was like a underground castle, with libraries and treasure rooms and jails, and passageways that end up going nowhere.
