5 Greatest Methods for Finding Villages in Minecraft 1.18.2

 Minecraft's universe is large and spans an almost limitless amount of distance, which is measured in the game in "blocks." While a large portion of the environment is covered with various biomes and terrains like woods, mountains, seas, and more, players may come across some randomly produced constructions from time to time.

Ocean monuments, woodland houses, desert temples, witch homes, and other constructions are among them. The village, on the other hand, is one of the most prevalent and welcoming constructions in the game.

Villages are made up of a huge complex with a set number of modest houses and structures. Each house has a villager, as well as chests, planks, bricks, crafting tables, food, and other items. Villages serve as safe havens for players who come across them while exploring the world of Minecraft.

1- Use The Location Command

Almost every player is likely to be familiar with this strategy. However, for those who are unfamiliar with the game and are having difficulty locating a town, this approach is arguably the simplest way to locate any biome or construction in the game.

Commands are used to adjust the game's many characteristics. The /locate command is one of these commands. To discover any structure in the game, just hit the assigned keybind that opens the in-game console (front slash or "/" by default") and enter in another forward slash followed by the phrase "locate" and the structure's name.

Players must input "/locate village" in this instance. This will show every village type in the game (denoted by their biome type). The coordinates of the town may be found by clicking on a specific entry in the console, and clicking on these coordinates will transport the player to them. It's that simple.

2- Look for Things Near Water

Water is a valuable resource in the game. While there is no thirst gauge in the vanilla survivor game mode, water has many additional uses in the game, such as water buckets, fish farms, watercraft, and more.

One of the nicest things about water sources in the game is that settlements tend to grow closer to them. This enables the locals to cultivate a variety of crops and food resources, such as wheat and potatoes, in addition to sugarcane and melons.

3- Avoid Mountain Ranges, Jungles, And Dense Woods

Every construction in the game, whether a Pillager Outpost or a fortress, requires a set amount of area to develop and expand. Villages often grow in a horizontal way.

This implies they require a lot of room to grow, which eliminates or reduces the likelihood of their forming in mountains and heavily inhabited environments like woods and jungles.

4- Increase The Render Distance

When looking for anything in Minecraft or other games, it's usually a good idea to find a vantage point or at least go high up. Climbing a tree or a mountain in survival mode or soaring aloft in creative mode are excellent ways to scout the region and see if the player can detect any communities.

The render distance a player has when playing is one part of this that may be really useful. Render distance is a setting that determines how many chunks are loaded for a player to see from a given place. A higher render distance, in layman's terms, allows gamers to see further. This may be really useful when attempting to locate settlements.

5- Look In The Appropriate Biome

Players may only discover settlements in a limited number of the game's biomes. Oceans, mushroom biomes, and jagged peaks biomes, for example, are less likely to have towns. 

The following biomes, on the other hand, are more likely to spawn villages:

  • Desert
  • Plains
  • Sunflower Plains (Bedrock Edition only)
  • Tundra
  • Snowy Tundra
  • Savanna
  • Taiga
  • Taiga variants (Bedrock Edition only)
