In this article, we are going to talk about Dungeon finder. If you come to this page to find out that information, so you do not hesitate to keep staying on this page.
To use dungeon finder, you have to enter your world seed in the text box at the top and click “Find Dungeons!”. To get the exact coordinates:
- mouse input: please hover over a chunk or double click.
- touch input: Simply tap or long press on a chunk.
Then, the coordinates will be able to be displayed below the map.
HOW ACCURATE IS IT?
Based on the research, the finder is not 100% accurate. Several of the locations may not be actual dungeons in-game, and some in-game dungeons may be missing. Our goal is that the finder is accurate enough to be useful and not be frustrating to use. If you find multiple locations to be wrong, you are able to try again in a distant location.
For technical reasons, you have to know the seed of your world to use Dungeon Finder. If you are playing SSP, the app can fetch the seed from your save game. In alternative, you are able to use the /seed command in-game. In SMP, you are able to use the same command if you have sufficient rights. Otherwise, you are dependent on the server owner, who started the world and has access to the save game and config files.
This app uses some new web technologies. As a result, some features may be disabled for older browsers. For this case, we suggest you to use the latest version of a major browser such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
The first thing you have to do is choose a seed and version. You are able to type it in manually. The latter will be done by clicking on “Load from Save…” and choosing your level.dat. You will be able to find the save games in the saves folder of your Minecraft installation. On Windows, you are able to use %appdata%\.minecraft\saves to get the folder. When loading a seed from a level, the seed will be stored as a level.
After you entered your seed and version you are able to start using the map. To scroll, please use your arrow keys while your mouse cursor points at the map, or move your mouse while holding down the left mouse button. You are able to use the slider below the map. The lower inputs offer you to go to a specific point of the map and set a marker there. You are able to remove and add the marker by double clicking on the map.
Once using a touch-enabled device, an extra option for enabling/disabling touchscreen control is going to appear below the map. With that option enabled, you are able to drag the map with your finger to navigate, pinch to zoom in and out, and tap and hold to set a marker on the map. By double tapping on the map, you are able to quickly enable/disable the functionality as well.
