First appearances

See History

Igloos are structures that are naturally generated in snowy biomes. They are round structures constructed primarily of snow blocks.

Generation[]

Igloos naturally generate in the Ice Plains and Cold Taiga biomes, but not in Ice Mountains, Ice Plains Spikes, Cold Taiga Hills, or other variants.

Structure[]

Igloos are composed of snow blocks, sheltering a carpeted interior containing a bed, furnace and crafting table.

In half of the igloos, a trapdoor can be found under the carpet, leading down a long ladder shaft to a basement. This passageway and the basement are built from stone brick, some of which are monster eggs. In this basement is a brewing stand, a cauldron, a chest, and beyond the far wall, behind iron bars in two different cages, are a villager priest and a zombie villager priest. The zombie villager can be cured with a golden apple and a splash potion of weakness, both found inside the igloo. No other types of villagers can be found.

The cauldron is 23 full, and the brewing stand contains a splash potion of weakness.
