So i heard about a great/perfect XBox 360 seed with all biomes, 4 mineshafts, 4 villages, all crops, and a nice open nether.
I launch the seed on PS3 and start to explore using the coords found in the post.
blaze spawners? slightly off but still there.
mineshafts? slightly off but still there.
ALL OTHER SPAWNERS... nowhere to be found....
Does PS3 have skeleton spawners?
Do 360 coords match PS3's?
Do both games determine where structures go in the same way?
Is the Xbox map origin the same on PS3 version?
The seed is -1763857877073745322

Yeah there's skeleton spawners on PS3. Although they seem to be much more rare because I find almost 10x as many zombie spawners than I do skeleton spawners.
The coordinate locations are generally in the same area since the generated structures are based on the seed. In a way like how the seed determines which chunks are slime chunks.
I've been looking through Xbox 360 and PC seeds (pre 1.3) and they're generally the same. There was this one seed that was on Xbox 360 that had a HUGE surface crater. Tested it out on PS3 and the crater in the same general area but looked slightly different. But it was there. The mineshaft was in the same spot also except the for spawners. There was supposed to be 3 close spawners but I only found 2 spawners in the area.
Here's the video i'm talking about. It's a PC seed.
Entered that seed into PS3. Boom almost the exact same crater in a slightly different location in the vicinity.
So the seeds between Xbox, PC and PS3 aren't 100% but it's close enough i'd say. Besides certain things like spawners.
I was kind hoping that the origin (0,0,0) was different and I'd be able to translate (15x, 30y) xbox to (0x, 10y) or something using a formula and go to the translated coords and Voila, but no luck yet finding a working formula because like you said, 3 spawners xbox, 2 ps3... well i may ask matm354 to start a thread for ps3 specific spawner coords since he's the first to find it
