I dont know if this is normal but whenever i spawn in a new world there is no village but there is a stonghold which doesnt make sense. Rarely i get a village and its very frustrating cause i cant get some rare items like potatoes, carrots , horse armor, saddle , lead and so on so is this a glitch or what
Check to make sure that you have the "Generate Structures" option checked. (Under the "More Options" tab on the "Create New World" menu). If it is not checked, make sure you check it. (I believe the stronghold will generate regardless since the portal is required to get into the end).
I always check to make sure generate structures is on and it is always is when i create a new world so that isnt the problem what is????
Get a seed from the seeds list for the latest TU that you know is supposed to have villages. Create a world using that seed... do you get villages? If not, then try uninstalling that reinstalling the game and updates (but do the test first.. to avoid unnecessarily uninstalling the game).
If you do get villages on your test, then nothing is wrong... just your bad luck. Not every seed has villages... just like not every seed has a desert or a jungle or what have you.
