Yesterday we went on a grand tour of Minecraft’s geography. Closely tied to the biomes we just studied are the structures found within them. From sprawling (and not so sprawling) villages to temples left to collapse deep in the jungles, the Minecraft world isn’t as untouched as it might seem.
Once I found a single house with two people inside, but there was a pool of lava nearby and I managed to set their house on fire - I hope they had insurance...
I have a couple favorite "odd" discoveries in Minecraft.
The best, by far, was a desert temple that was partially merged with a house in a desert village. Because the temple now had a door, the villagers would go inside. It's the only time I ever found a temple with actual people inside (and a village priest no less). Pretty cool.
My other favorite weird-structure find was when I loaded an old map in a new version of Minecraft (this causes all sorts of really weird glitches as the coordinates of structures stay the same but the world generation algorithm is often times different). In this case the glitch was an entire large village set out on the ocean off the coast like the buildings were on cobblestone stilts. I used a boat to get out there and build cobblestone walkways so the poor villagers could move around again. It ended up being a sweet base because it was easy to light, totally isolated by the water, and 100% hostile mob free.
