How do I find bastions?
What is the best way to find bastions in minecraft? Because I find it annoying to randomly travel in the nether hoping to stumble across a bastion.
I tried the main method of looking for the following biomes to look for a bastion, but sometimes it takes too long:
- Crimson Forest
- Nether Wastes
- Soul Sand Valley
- Warped Forest
I also looked at the following https://www.sportskeeda.com/minecraft/how-find-minecraft-bastion-remnant , but it is not extremely fast at finding bastions.
If you aren't opposed to using an external tool, there is a nice site I use for finding both Bastions Remnants and Nether Fortresses. It is called https://www.chunkbase.com/ .
All you need to do is select which https://www.chunkbase.com/apps/ you want (in your case, the https://www.chunkbase.com/apps/bastion-remnant-finder#4670146600342495769 ) and supply your world seed. After doing so, the graph will display all the locations of where a Bastion is located for your world - all you need to do is get walking! Note that the tool only works for more recent versions of the game, and also supports Bedrock edition.
The https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Bastion_Remnant#Generation also has a decent explanation on how these generate:
Bastions remnants won't spawn in Basalt Deltas, but can spawn anywhere else in the Nether.
The regions are 432×432 blocks in Java Edition and 480×480 blocks in Bedrock Edition. Each region has a 4-chunk separation located on the south and east borders of the region in which neither a fortress nor a bastion can generate. This leaves only a 368×368 block section in Java Edition or 416×416 block section in Bedrock Edition where a structure can generate. Two structures will never generate in the same region, however they might overlap if they generate close to the separation border. In Java Edition, the chance of a bastion generating instead of a fortress is 3⁄5 (60%), while in Bedrock Edition the chance of a bastion generating instead of a fortress is 2⁄3 (66.6%).
Here is a graphic from the Wiki that represents the above quote:
Nether structure generation in Java Edition. The black lines represent each region and the dots represent coordinates. Green is where they can generate and red is where they cannot.
