    posted a message on Eye of Ender ... but no stronghold?

    I found it!!! I used the stronghold finder and set it to 1.9, large biome, and it worked!


    Yeah! Thanks so much everyone!

    Thanks so much - I feel like I should be paying you all like at the Apple Genius Bar!


    I spoke to my daughter and she said she made the biomes extra large, and increased the size and spawn rate of gold and diamonds.


    But you are correct in that the eye of ender did work when I threw it.


    I don't know how this world could have been started in 1.8 unless the software wasn't updated back when my daughter started it about 6 months ago.


    I will check the locations of the original 3 strongholds and see if can get me somewhere.


    Although this doesn't answer the question ... why did the eyes of ender take me to the wrong place to start with?

    Your world must be older than you remember. If it was created back in the 1.8 series then strongholds would not necessarily be in the same place (and there were fewer of them). Testing that seed in 1.8.9 yields the same large mineshaft complex, but no stronghold. However, that also means you have been in the that area previously to generate the chunks without the stronghold (new chunks follow current version generation).


    I looked and 1.9 was released in February 2016. This world was created perhaps 6 months ago. I never played Minecraft before that.

    So I think it's because this a custom world.

    OH! My daughter created the world and I think she made it custom so that it would have more diamonds....


    Does that mean Eyes of Ender don't work? If so, that stinks! I built a blaze farm that took me forever. So I'd have to do it all over....


    Thanks for helping me solve the mystery!

    Wow, we definitely have a mystery! Those coordinates do not take me to the staircase or the portal room. Check out these screen shots. On one of the screenshots, you can see the seed - so I did copy it correctly.


    Any thoughts? I'm in Australia, but why in the world would that matter?

    Here is the last photo showing the coordinates where you found the portal room.

    Wow, that stronghold is quite the mess, but an interesting one!


    The spiral staircase, which is generally considered to be the entrance to the stronghold, is under an island at -1261 62 708 (dig down from there). If you'd like the coordinates of the portal room, just ask.

    Could you recheck those coordinates of -1261, 708? I dug straight down and did not find the spiral staircase. It also didn't seem to be on the island. And yes, I would love the coordinates of the portal room, if you could include the level, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I'm not sure what version it was created in - maybe 1.10 or 1.11?


    The seed is 4037478761576695408 and the coordinates are -1200, 980


    Thank you SO SO much for any help you can give!

    I was searching for the closest stronghold by using the eye of enders. I found the spot where the eye wouldn't go anywhere, just down to the ground. I dug there and ended up hitting bedrock. No stronghold. So I dug out a large horizontal area at about level 20 and threw another eye of ender, and it went to the same spot that I had mined down to the bedrock.


    What happened? I really want to find a stronghold, but even when I travelled far away and tried again, the eye of enders took me back to the same spot.


    Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated!
