So I went back to my Survival map since 1.8 is launching soon, and I felt like exploring the world and see how my old world seed acts differently in the new version. And I’m walking through a forest when I get hit by an Elder Guardian curse.
I went out to the ocean that spawned nearby, but there wasn’t an Ocean Monument anywhere. Then I noticed some weird indents on the side of the coast, and went underwater to investigate.
Turns out, an Ocean Monument somehow spawned under a forest. And it’s within walking distance from my home.
Me and noodleprincesskirigiri were playing Minecraft on creative because she wanted to build an underwater house, so i went off and made a castle, and the next thing i know, there a giant tower of cacti next to it, and a smug looking sister staring at me from on top of it.
