I have the random buildings setting turned on. Any trick or tips on finding these strongholds?

there's not really a way to tell where they are, as every map is generated randomly so the best bet would be to just go around and search for them.

not trying to sound like a prick or anything, just dont really think there's a way to really tell where they are right off the bat.
If you believe in Jesus Christ and are 100% proud of it, make this your sig.

I have found about three. Every time it's been either in a ravine or abandoned mineshaft so search around there carefully.

If your not playing a GAME for FUN your doing it wrong.

On creative mode (maybe survival mode too), the TNT\Piston Xray trick works. Try that.

Yes, it works on survival mode.

I found one:

Seed: "twelfth" (no quotes, all lowercase)
* I haven't posted it yet, but it will be on my site later today.
Stronghold coords: 193.29.257

Strongholds will always be underground. They are sometimes attached to abandoned mineshafts, but are easiest to find when they are buried in the walls of underground ravines.
