Village Locator Add-on

This add-on adds a Village Locator map to the game which can be obtained by trading with a cartographer villager. This new map will give you the directions to the closest village in your area. Villages are great resources for food and shelter and this makes them very useful when you’re playing survival mode.

How does it work?

Trade with a cartographer to obtain the Village Locator map. You’ll need to unlock several trading tiers before he’ll sell you one though. Just keep on trading and it will eventually unlock.

The map (which is called an “Unknown Map”) will display a small green marker. This is the location of the village. Sometimes you’ll have to travel great distances before actually finding it though.

    Villages Are all over the place why would there be a map?!

    Unless you use it in the village it’s a waste it works it’s good

    How about making the map a rare drop from zombie villagers? I think it’s better than making it in the bonus chest or sold by cartographers, because it implies the said zombies were residents of the village but they got infected and started wandering around.

    There is no point since you are probably trading a cartographer in a village anyway.

    I like it

  7. NinjaMatthew says:

    And why use a map when you can just use the /locate command? You need to enable cheats anyway to activate the behavior pack, so why not just save some time and use commands?

    I like it. If only it came with bonus chests instead of the villager. Of course, you can just explore distances and then use the map and hope it’s not the village you have bought the map from.

    Great idea, but one flaw with it. In order to get it, you have to find a village, at which point makes the village locator useless because it just shows you the village you already are in. The way most people would find the cartographer is in a village.

    • 5tr4 says:

      What i mean, is that the cartographer you would get the village locator from, you find in a village. So you have to find a village in order to be able to find that same village easier. Unless you cure a zombie villager, but even then its just easier to find a village.

        The addon itself is good. But because you have to get it from a villager, and it locates villages, its completely pointless.

  10. NinjaMatthew says:

    But if you’re trading with a cartographer, you’re already in a village, so if the map shows you where the closest village is, it would just show you a map of the village you’re in. It’s a good idea, there should just be a different way to obtain the map

    This addon is helping me but I never get a cartographer villager though 🙁

    The other addons called more treasure maps addon, and these two don’t seem to be compatible, could someone make an addon that adds maps for all of the naturally generated structures in minecraft? That’d be reall awsome since I suck at finding them naturally XD

    This is really cool!, though I remember seeing an addon like this that added maps for temples, the stronghold, and mineshaft maybe you could make one addon that unlocks the trades for all of those maps?

  14. Merisays says:

    This is extremely useless, as cartographers can only be found IN villages! The map just directs me to my current area, making it a complete waste of valuable resources. Please make the map obtainable from somewhere else.
