    Ok I have been really trying very hard on my own to find the strongholds on my seed. I've tried using Cartograph G, I've tried using McEdit, I've tried using the Java code stronghold finder. I've got a fly mod on and have spent two days scouring the area mapping like crazy. I have found some beutyful stuff, villages, mountians ravines, really neet things. But I'm to point I need help, I can not seem to locate the lil buggers. The map seed is Black Sun (in game comes up as -960271765). Any help locating them would really be appricaited.



    I used the seed -960271765 and i could not find any stronghold's, is it an old seed from and old world or a new seed from a new world? you might also have better luck since you have quite a larger map of your world than i do.

    When you use Cartograph G render a normal world north map that shows all blocks like you have already done, next you want to flip that rendered map 90 degrees counter-clockwise (flip once to the left) so that it looks like your in-game map. Next render another map with Cartograph G but this time under block filter you want to "Show Only Block(s):" click the select button next to it and check the bookshelf #47 and Iron Bars #101 then render your map.

    Once you have done that render flip that map 90 degrees counter-clockwise (flip once to the left) then use an image tool to overlay the 2 block render map (i use gimp) and select the option to "Burn" that layer so that the stronghold will show up as black in the picture.

    Whoa man, You are pure gold. Make a tutorial on Stronghold hunting and stick it in your seed!

    Also, could you find the stronghold in the seed 2043584565? Thanks, man ^.^


    Well your map is a huge ocean with tiny islands but you do have a stronghold, the hard part is going to be finding it. I did verify that the stronghold is there but it's under the ocean on the bottom right hand side of your map.

    Happy Hunting.

    Would you be so kind as to point out where the strongholds are on the seed "gimmeabreak"


    Unfortunately i could not find any stronghold's after exploring and entire map, but you do have 2 very nice NPC villages. One of them i spawned in and right across the field towards the bottom right there is another large NPC village plus a very small one on the upper right side of your map.

    I'll try to explore a bit more where i think a stronghold might be.

    I'm just using Cartograph G to find the stronghold's in the world, the Java code stronghold finder just isn't accurate enough. Besides anyone with Cartograph G can do the same thing that i'm doing.

    Skidoodle wrote a little java app that calculates the coordinates of all 3 strongholds from the seed.

    Worked like a charm for me to find all strongholds within 30 blocks with Minutor.


    Meh. It is much more accurate to just use Cartograph G, This way you don't have to guess where the stronghold is at you simply follow the map and dig. The Java parser is not as accurate mapping out your world you still have to figure out if your even in the correct area.

    I'm unfamiliar with that part of the map... It looks different from the ingame map I crafted (no similar landmarks/continents/rivers ect, I spawned pretty close to x-0, z-0)


    In-game maps you don't get the good resolution on and everything is a rough approximation of what it actually looks like.

    Mmk, thanks a bunch :biggrin.gif:


    Your stronghold is right off the tip of an island on the bottom left side of the map and it's a nice one i checked it out, your NPC village is also indicated with a red box and there is a cool mountain on the top right of your map with a cave dig inside of it near the top.

    I found 2 stronghold's on the 404 seed, one is straight across a field from the big NPC village and the other is on the bottom right of the map.

    What kind of land marks do look for when trying to find a stronghold?


    Basically caves with above ground entrances, i have found that strongholds like to spawn near the NPC villages. Other than that just use Cartograph G to create a map of your world once you have explored a full map in-game then make another map that just shows bookshelf's and iron bars. Then overlay the layers and you have a stronghold map.

    You know what, after flying around in MCedit for a while i realized that i forgot to flip the other layer in the image. So your stronghold is not out in the middle of an ocean it's actually across the desert from your NPC village.

    It's correct this time, i went and checked it out and there is a nice stronghold there.

    Yeah, we're still looking for it too... Can we have the exact coordinates of it if it is possible please. That would be much more helpful. Still, it's quite fun looking for it


    Unfortunately cartography doesn't give the coordinates, and there is no real landmarks to guide you to the stronghold since you had the bad luck of a stronghold being generated in the middle of an ocean. It is going to be a very hard one to find.
