I've been playing Minecraft on and off since 1.7.3 and was curious if I update an old world, will it have a stronghold in it?
When I created my world in 1.7.3 I saved a clean copy of it before I did any work. I recently loaded it in 1.2.5 and saw the message about it being converted to Anvil. What I'd like to know is will there be a stronghold spawned somewhere as I walk around or would I be wasting my time?
I like the layout of the world but I'd really like to take advantage of the strongholds as well.
Well, I downloaded an x-ray mod and tried it. I did see three huge underground mine shafts but haven't found any stronghold. There also seems to be an inordinate amount of coal... almost looks like every 4th block is coal.
I may not have gone far enough though since I had the UI turned off so as not to spoil it with coords. if there was in fact one. I'd still want to "discover" it the old fashioned way.
