I'm on 1.14.3 and amidst has been update for it. So it is impossible to get an ice plains/taiga without villages or pillager outposts? For some reason amidst runs impossibly slow on my computer so I use mineatlas and then check the villages with amidst.
Amidst about 3 times slower on any release after 1.12.2.
That's why I usually have two instances of it on in task bar.
If I'm looking for a specific biome configuration I will use chrl-R in 1.12.2 to search quickly and when I find a promising seed I use Ctrl-C and the open my 1.14 Amidst window and enter that seed to see what that world will look like.

If you aren't part of the solution, then you obviously weren't properly dissolved.
I'm thinking that you could avoid villages and outposts by creating a 1.12.2 version world using BigAlanM's seed, choosing World Type: Customized, going into Creative mode and flying around to load the area you want to sanitize.
Then you could upgrade to 1.14.3 if you want, switch to Survival and play normally.
The part you had previously loaded should be village free, since you'd have turned them off, and outpost free, since they didn't exist in 1.12.2
Everything outside that area would be normal since the customization doesn't work in later versions.
(Or you could stay in 1.12.2 and have no villages or outposts anywhere, you could still cure zombie villagers if you decide you want to do some trading or so.)
I don't like the idea for having to downgrade version just to get a certain criteria or spawning in items/changing gamemodes. I would turn off generated structures but I want dungeons etc.I love the campfires and barrels too much to not play 1.14. I just decided to try find a swamp that way no villages can spawn. Great idea, though
