I know you can edit the size of villages and there distances and such in superflat worlds, but is there a way to do that in a normal world? preferably 1.14 since I would want to use the new updated villages. Appreciate any answer I can get
wait, we could apply presets to normal worlds? I thought that was just a superflat thing. Hmm, TIL.
Oh, yeah, it's not currently possible in 1.13 or 1.14. The custom world generator was completely disabled because it was not included in the 1.13 world generator rewrite that made the oceanic updates possible. Basically, having the CWG available causes an automatic crash (if you're familiar with how mods work, the CWG is basically for the wrong version of Minecraft now).
Work has been done to bring it forward (per 1.14 snapshot version notes, biomes have been serialized), and presumably work is still being done to bring it forward some more, but it will probably come back in 1.15 or at best a late 1.14 minor-version update unless they wish to delay it for a more-appropriately-timed release (Minecraft 1.16: Over the Rainbow update? I could see Mojang debuting a new CWG in a version that also gives us biome enhancements in the Nether and End as well as allowing us to build custom portals to custom dimensions),
I was going to suggest using presets but I just found they were removed from regular worlds in 1.13.
I have no idea if it's possible in 1.13 or 1.14.
I realize a negative answer is no real help.
Only Superflat has ever allowed you to edit the size of villages or other structure parameters, aside from dungeon count (IMO, one of the greatest failings of "Customized" was the omission of these settings, and more, like changing the generation of caves; my 5+ year old suggestion is still entirely relevant).
Otherwise, the only way to do this is with mods, of which there are none for 1.14 (there is a modloader, Fabric, which was actually made when it was still in snapshots but I have no idea if it lets you modify the relevant code; otherwise, you'd have to manually mod obfuscated bytecode).
