Minecraft’s villages are one of its most iconic structures. Wooden houses, farms, and villagers that look like Squidward are a staple of its world, with its design changing depending on the biome that it is in. Whether it’s to spawn zombies, torture villagers, or test contraptions such as TNT cannons, players might want to know how to spawn villages in the game.
The short answer is that there is no single command in vanilla that can spawn a village outright in Minecraft. However, if you want to look for alternative solutions, read below.
How to Get a Village in Minecraft
Before anything, take note that this article was written for Minecraft 1.19.2. If you are reading this article for a future version, the methods and commands listed in this article might be outdated.
First, if you just need a village in any location, you can just use the command “/locate structure <village type>”. This command will return the coordinates to the nearest village from your location. The village type will depend on the biome you want your village to be in. The following are the list of village types currently available in the game:
- minecraft:village (if you just need any regular village)
However, if you want to build a village in a specific location, you can use the clone command after using the locate command. /clone will clone the village you found and put it in a location of your choosing. To do this, use the following command: “/clone <begin> <end> <destination> [replace¦masked] [normal¦force¦move].”
There’s a lot of variables to unpack here, so let me explain.
Imagine a cube area around the village that you want to clone. Take two opposite corners of that cube, use one as the begin coordinate and use another as the end coordinate. (Type x, y, and z coordinates). At this point, there should be six numbers in your command: three for the begin coordinates and three for the end coordinates.
After that, you can now enter the coordinates of your destination area. The clone area will spawn to the NorthWest area of your coordinate, so make sure to enter the LOWEST x y z coordinate value for the destination argument.
Finally, there are also optional arguments for how the cloning will take place. The maskMode controls what blocks from your clone area will be cloned. replace clones all blocks, including air, while masked clones only non-air blocks. cloneMode, meanwhile, controls how the cloning will happen – normal will just clone it normally, force will force the clone if the clone area and destination area overlap, while move will replace the blocks in the source area with air (basically only moving the clone area). The default values for the two modes are replace and normal, respectively.
How do you teleport to a village?
To teleport to a village, you need to type in /tp [username] [x–coordinate] [y–coordinate] [z–coordinate] in the “Chat“ box.
In Minecraft, the /tp command allows you to teleport to a specific coordinates. You can use this command to teleport to a village, by using the coordinates of the village. To do this, re-open the “Chat” box, and type in /tp [username] [x-coordinate] [y-coordinate] [z-coordinate]. Replace the bracketed information with your username and the coordinates of the village.
This command is useful if you want to teleport to a specific location in the world. For example, if you want to teleport to a village, you can use the coordinates of the village. You can also use this command to teleport to other players. To do this, type in /tp [username]. This will teleport you to the location of the specified player.
There are a few things to keep in mind when using this command. First, make sure that you have cheats enabled. Second, keep in mind that you will be teleported to the specified coordinates, even if there is no land there. If you teleported into the void, you will die. Finally, keep in mind that you can only teleport within 100 blocks of your current location.
Here are some tips for using the /tp command:
Use cheats: This command can only be used if cheats are enabled. To enable cheats, open the world options and turn on “Allow Cheats”.
Use coordinates: You can use this command to teleport to specific coordinates. To do this, type in /tp [x-coordinate] [y-coordinate] [z-coordinate]. Keep in mind that you will be teleported even if there is no land at those coordinates. If you teleported into the void, you will die.
Use players: You can also use this command to teleport to other players. To do this, type in /tp [username]. This will teleport you to the location of the specified player.
