Stoneholm Minecraft Mod
By Nathan Young
While playing and exploring on your Minecraft server, villages are commonly found in the overworld. These locations are wonderful for trading and collecting resources, among building bases. Whether you’ve encountered a village in the desert or plains biome, they’re scattered throughout the world to enjoy. However, some players may want some to generate underground for more diversity and options to try out. This requires you to use mods, allowing new features such as this and more to be in Minecraft. One of these is known as Stoneholm, providing extra villages underground in the world that can randomly be discovered by players. These areas contain lots of villagers, rooms, loot, and sometimes other features. This is perfect to kickstart a new adventure, as you might find valuable items or the right spot for a home. Setting this up to play with friends is easily done on our panel, as it only takes a few minutes. Although, newcomers to the modding scene may be unfamiliar with our system. Due to this, we’ve created this Apex Hosting guide to show you how to install and use Stoneholm on your Minecraft server.

After joining the server, you’ll want to collect some basic resources and begin exploring the world. Remember, the new villages are only found underground of the overworld. This may make it harder to locate, but luckily there’s an entrance found on the surface. In many normal villages, you’ll stumble across one of these structures that indicates a hidden area beneath your character’s feet. However, this isn’t always true since they can generate randomly in the world. If you’re having trouble finding these underground villages, then consider enabling cheats or becoming a server operator. This provides you the ability to run the /locate command to quickly find them in the Minecraft world. Besides this, the subsections below showcases a standard underground village and its possibilities from the Stoneholm mod to get you started.
While running around in-game, you may see some stone blocks on the horizon. This indicates there’s an underground village, which should be accessible by a water elevator. However, the biome of this structure determines its design and might appear different. Regardless, make your way inside of it to begin exploring the depths of this new village in Minecraft. Remember, these structures can also be near normal villages or entirely somewhere else in the world.
While inside of underground villages, you’ll notice long corridors with countless rooms scattered throughout. This is one of the main areas of the structure, but there’s many other interesting places to explore. In some cases, villagers will have jobs and dedicated rooms to their role. The vast majority of the time, these villages don’t include professions for its inhabitants. Besides this, there’ll be many chests and barrels for you to loot.
On rare occasions, there won’t be any village once you navigate down its entrance point. These structures are considered abandoned or an underground ruin, typically only containing a chest with other unique blocks. This type of village isn’t worthwhile to stick around, especially since there’s many others to encounter in the Minecraft world. Keep this in mind as you continue exploring in-game, as you may get unlucky with this discovery.
Depending on the biome you’ve found an underground village in, there can be many unique rooms to explore. These include farming, animal, storage, water, library, or other areas. If you’re lucky, there might be multiple types of these rooms to use for a new base. Otherwise, it’s a wonderful source of food and valuable items to take for your other adventures. Remember, sometimes there won’t be any of these kinds of areas in an underground village. This may be underwhelming for some players, leading them to search for others to get the perfect ones.
Whether it’s an obvious or hidden chest in villages underground in Minecraft, there’s lots of loot to possibly collect. These can be enchanted books, emeralds, tools, armor, food, ingots, and so much more. We strongly recommend checking all storage containers in these structures, including barrels since they might have something worth stealing.
If you’re unsatisfied with the default underground villages in Minecraft, then consider installing the MoreVillagers mod on the server. This is for Fabric and Forge, allowing you to have more rooms, villager jobs, and other features in these structures. New areas will become available with more items to loot, among other unique generations for normal villages. This is perfect for maximizing your Minecraft experience, as you’ll have more opportunities to enjoy Stoneholm in-game.
If you’re unable to locate any underground villages in your Minecraft world, then make sure you’ve generated a new world. Remember, this is required to allow these new structures to appear in-game. Without doing this means finding them is a lot harder, as already existing regions or chunks can’t force their generation. Besides this, double checking you’ve restarted the server after uploading the downloaded files in your mods directory is another way to solve this situation. In some cases, making a new Server Profile will resolve any unforeseen issues since it avoids conflict with previously installed modifications.
At the time of writing this, there’s only 1.19.3 for the MoreVillagers mod addon. This means if you’re trying to use it for Stoneholm on higher versions, then it won’t work in-game. Whether it’s for Forge or Fabric, everything should be the same so it’ll function properly on the server and launcher. However, generating a new world after installing this addon is required to get the new rooms to appear in underground villages. Otherwise, you may have installed the wrong build of it for Stoneholm. This means you should double check if you’ve downloaded Forge or Fabric, then make the correct changes according to your desired setup.
Other times, players might be unable to join the server after a successful installation on the server’s side. This tends to happen when the impacted user fails to correctly configure their Minecraft launcher. Whether they’ve improperly installed Forge, Fabric, the wrong game version, or didn’t upload the files in the mods folder, double check everything and try again. Once this gets fixed, the situation should be resolved and allow you to join the server. If you’re still unable to do this, then consider reaching out to our Support team so they can work with you.
