Okay, so I've done everything to find this thing. My world and I have seen three years of life. Never out of survival, and I have a warehouse dedicated to each resource. It's serious. Finally, after years of playing I decided to find my stronghold. (Yes, it's not too old. It does have one). I correctly threw my eyes of ender and followed them till they began hovering. Then they began to shoot into the ground. I had found it. I built my staircase to level 11 but didn't hit it. So step two was to build long corridor strips out the sides of te stari
Strips out the sides of the staircase. Dozens. No luck.
Step three. TNT.
I blew lee the hell out if everything looking for some semblance of stronghold. Nothing.
Step four. I tried to reseed my word into creative mode knowing that if I go into creative mode my world is ruined. It generated a completely different map than my own. Still not deterred I found the stronghold in that world and jotted down the coordinates. Went back to lazuli (my world) and it was a out of lava. Dug the whole thing out. Nothing.
Step 5 was this. Please guys I'm begging you. Help me.
I was misleading. I apologize. I named my world lazuli. The seed is 1669706786712512479. Unfortunately every time I try to reseed my world into creative, it generates something different. My world has te following features:
To the Far East and center is a snowy biome. To the far south and east is a large village bordering jungle. A river runs through the entire center do the world. The ENTIRE center is desert. The mushroom boom is very small and in the oceans to the west and central.
You seemed desperate for help so I am trying. Chunkbase is a good resource. For the 'legacy' PS4 option for your seed it says the stronghold is 820 / -172. Try it. If it is not correct, you can blame Chunkbase if you want or maybe you have other problems with the seed generation on your system. It's worth digging one more hole at least. Good luck.

I was going to say, the seed was probably created before last big update which reset all the seeds. Which absolutely saddened me since I switched from XBOX to PS3 right after the update and my awesome 7 village seed no longer exists. Well it does, but the seed was no longer awesome.
