Although generated structures in Minecraft can be fun to explore and loot they are not always easy to find, it’s a great way to get your hands on valuable loot. Some players simply want to find and explore their Minecraft seeds, while others are more interested in finding them for loot or specific plans.
No matter what reason Minecraft players may have for searching out structures, there is a way to locate them based on their type. If roaming the landscape and looking at the horizon are not options, there is a way to find them. Minecraft: Bedrock Edition users can locate the coordinates of nearby structures using the command console.
Use /locate to find coordinates of nearby structures
The command console in Minecraft can help players solve many issues. Although the command /locate is available on Minecraft: Java Edition as also on Bedrock Edition Pocket Edition and Education Edition, it has a different syntax depending on which platform it is being used on.
The command syntax for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition is:
To activate this command in chat console players must enable cheats. This option is available in Bedrock Edition in the world edit menu. It looks like a slider players can toggle on/off. Cheats can also be disabled, so players should remember this.
However, cheats can be enabled so players can use a variety of structures to enter arguments into the command’s syntax. The command requires that players be in the right dimension to search for structures. If a Minecraft player is in an Overworld, the command /locate won’t work if the player attempts to locate a structure in the End or Nether. The command will fail in such cases.
The following commands can be used for detecting nearby structures and having their coordinates displayed to the player using Bedrock Edition’s syntax.
The /locate command for casual Minecraft players is well worth looking into. As mentioned, cheats will result in players losing future achievements.
