The best way I found to create the seed is to start at small and then expand to large without overwriting world edges. Also, explore the whole small map first before expanding!!If you select overwriting world edges, you will mess up quite a few of those villages packed into the small sized map. There are a few small graphic anomalies by not overwriting (eg. some missing ice where some water should be frozen), but nothing major. The reason you should explore the small map before expanding is sometimes as many as 3 of the villages are completely missing or glitched. Confirm that you have the full 15 villages in your small world before expanding.
I came across this seed shown as a classic map and wondered about it's potential if the map size was increased. I experimented with various ways of creating and expanding the seed trying to maximize its content. I also produced a detailed mapping of all its structures. I also gave it a name! The final result is a large map with 25 villages (15 of which are on the small map!) and a total of 15 blacksmiths. The amount of loot from blacksmiths alone is pretty staggering. Diamonds, obsidian, full sets of iron armor, iron weapons, iron pickaxes, iron ingots, gold, etc. is all within a map of spawn. Another thing that makes the amount of villages crazy is just how big each one is. I would consider the majority of them to be near double village size! There are only 2 or 3 that I might consider small and none that consist of a single house. I found 12 desert temples, 4 ocean monuments, 3 witch huts, a jungle temple and 3 igloos. The seed seems to have a decent variety of biomes. I'm not a rare biome pro, but the only one I looked out for but did not find was mesa bryce. I tend to look for ice spikes and it definitely has 4 or 5 of those. Let me know if you have any specific biome questions.
Here are the coordinates I have so far! I bet there are a lot more interesting things to find (jungle temples, mob spawners, abandon mines, etc). Let's get exploring!

The more I play this seed, the more amazing I'm finding it. I have found 80+ diamonds and only have maybe 3 branches off my mine shaft. There are TONS of ravines and caverns to explore. Every map seems to have several huge natural ravines. I have found top end enchants on villagers without having to unlock much (mend, efficiency 5, infinity, etc). Its crazy!
How is it going for other people that are trying out the seed?
Thanks MightyMattJ for the diamond coordinates. It makes me wish I saved the coordinates of what I have found so far since they have been plentiful in the small area that I have explored. I'll probably update the post with diamond locs so we can start a list.
I started working my way into nether exploration yesterday. I updated the location list with two Nether Fortresses! Lots of chests and blaze spawners found.
Yes! Not sure how I missed that one from my list of locations. I updated the original post and its now first on the Biomes list. Thanks for calling that to my attention.
On a friendly formatting note, you might want to edit your post and delete the quotation. No reason to have my entire post linked with your question since its sort of a wall of text. Hope you're enjoying the seed and let me know if you have any more questions / things to share!
I recommend creating it on small and fully exploring that map before expanding to large with overwrite world edges off. The reason you should fully explore the first map is because it is buggy and sometimes some villages are completely missing or glitched (e.g. half houses, buried houses, etc).
So the official steps are:
1. Enter seed and create small sized world (NOT classic)
2. Fully explore Map 0 to check if you have all villages 1-15 without any glitched buildings or villages missing entirely. I recommend creating a backup at this point when you have a proven 15 village small map, but I can be overly cautious so do what you will here.
3. Expand map to large with the overwrite world edges box unchecked (off).
4. Enjoy and post comments, findings, explorations here.
Hi CrumbReaper. Now that I reread my original post, I can totally see why it is confusing the way I introduced the seed. I'm going to rearrange it so my later creation description comes first. Thanks for bringing my attention to it! Also, glad you're enjoying the seed.
After the update I loaded your seed up again and played around with the different options. With a small world and large biomes thrn expanding to large with overwrite off, I was blow away. I still have all of the southern most maps to explore as well as some of the east but so far i have found 36 villages, 21 blacksmiths, 36 desert temples, 5 spawners and a jungle temple. Most of the original x,y,z is the same just more. I will post some coordinates as soon as i get some free time.

Just wanted to say "thanks" for sharing this seed. The amount of villages on the small world map was pretty impressive. I had expanded the map before the last update, but did not explore anything outside the initial small map. After the update, I went south one map and found a mansion. It was the only structure that I found on that entire map.
