I have a large explored area in a pre "Pretty Scary Update" world. Including several swamp areas. Will witches spawn in those areas? If so, is there a stand alone tool (like this one for slimes: http://mcslimes.appspot.com/ ) or similar for finding witch spawn areas?

    If the swap areas is generated before the update, then no, witch will not spawn.

  • Are there any swamp huts there? If yes, then witches will spawn there. If not, you could go to single-player, select the world, and then press re-generate to re-generate the world again (as a different save). This will use the same seed, so the swamp huts will be there in the re-generated world save.

  • @JeffreyLin does doing such a thing erase anything I've done to my world?

    @w1nger1 do you have a reference for that? I've read inconclusive reports on this.

    @Ender If you are looking to bring buildings and items to a new map. No you can't do that in game, you need a 3rd party program to do that.

If yes, then witches will spawn there.

If not, you could go to single-player, select the world, and then press re-generate to re-generate the world again (as a different save). This will use the same seed, so the swamp huts will be there in the re-generated world. Your inventory and world will still be in your old save.

Your third option is to port them over using MCEdit, a third-party program used to customize your world.

    Unless the map was generated with snapshots, there won't be any Swamp Huts before the update.

  • Time to dust off the maps, and do some exploring!

  • @John Are you going to be transferring your old map?

  • Nah, I think I'll just use this an excuse to go exploring. I'd hoped to avoid that. Have a pretty sweet "all in one" farming system built in my current world, but building a witch farm is too darn important....

  • Why? Do you want potions?

If you have any swamp huts, they will spawn, if not, they won't.

These responses are incorrect, they will spawn in pre pretty scary update worlds. dinner_bone confirmed this somewhere. I used the tool "amidst" which tells you where witch huts should be, and built a witch farm there.

edit: here is my source

and here is AMIDST, perfect for finding witch spawning locations in old worlds. link

  • If you did it yourself, that's helpful, but not everyone will believe it. If you can find a link to where Dinnerbone said that, that's even better. Feb 1, 2013 at 15:43
