Tried it for my seed and so far the first one didn't work however instead of getting me to a stronghold it lead me to one massive abandon mine network with a dungeon and so far #7 chests... so a stronghold would be nice to find but happy with this find. Moving onto the next option once i finish exploring this mine.

Build a zombie a fire and you keep him warm one night, set a zombie on fire and you keep him warm the rest of his life.
This is pretty awesome. the first stronghold I found was very close to the coords given, and was also part of an abandoned mineshaft, which was a neat treat. I am currently testing it on an smp server to see if it works there too
For those of you who found a stronghold, how did you find it? Di you use like a texture pack, MCedit, xray, or what?
Nvm I found a stronghold Im so extatic! The first coordinate lead me to a big abandoned mine, the second to a place i've already built on, ut the third was in teh relative area of the last set of coordinates!!!
If someone would be so kind as to either make a video showing the usage of this, or perhaps direct me to a program that would do a good job screen recording, I'd love to make a tutorial.
Besides that, I'd like to cover a few things:
This has become a large concern with the application, the problem being that I'm only doing part of the calculations. When I looked through the obfuscated code, there was a large section referencing 20+ .java files (all with their own error messages), and while I'm doing my best to sort it all out, it's not simple.
Finding other things
I got lucky with Strongholds, there was a string with "Stronghold" written in the same file, but when it comes to mine shafts, or dungeons, or anything else really, I don't even know where to start. If someone could point me towards the right classes, or even what I should be looking for, I might be able to add it in.
This goes back to the whole issue of only partially running the code that dictates the position. It's my belief that after coming up with the initial number (what this application finds) that it then goes on to move it depending on the environment, biomes, and just other random things. So, while most of the time the original number is close, it can occasionally be very off.
I was about to come on hear and gripe about how there was nothing at the three coordinates. First one was a village and a ravine and abandoned mineshaft, the second and third only had abandoned mineshafts, no signs of strongholds. Then I read about using MCEdit, and lo and behold, there was a stronghold at position #1. But it was completely buried, no surface signs at all. Not to mention the stronghold itself was very poorly put together so... a bit unimpressive. It only had a single chest that I could find, with 2 apples and 5 bread.
Oh well. Thanks for the work putting into this, the strongholds could definitely stand to use a lot of work in their generation code, making something a bit more consistent.
What's the server? I've nevar gone onto any server besides meh fwends,due to swearing and..Profain is the word? buildings
Bigzom25's server. 126.96.36.199:25565. Its a fun server, dedicated peoples. Griefers, thieves, and backstabbers. Always fun. Modding isn't allowed, anything else is. Yes, even swearing and profanity. It doesn't happen often outside of casual conversation. And the occasional rager/spammer.
