This is still my favorite Minecraft village seed, and it works as a Minecraft 1.5.2 village seed as well.
On this seed you spawn right in the middle of a massive grass village, and it even has a blacksmith. There's a forest nearby for wood, plenty of cows, and sheep for beds. Also there's a lake nearby with plenty of squid for books, which you can use to get emeralds from the villagers. You can find sugar cane near the lake, cactus in the desert, and carrots and potatoes in the village.
On top of the original village you spawn in, there's also another, smaller village off in the desert only a few hundred blocks away. I don't have the exact coordinates on the second village, but if you follow the ocean you'll find it. Just watch the video and you'll get the idea.
This is my favorite village seed, and be sure to check out the entire Minecraft Village Seed Collection.

This is a great 1.6.4 village seed, I love this one. When you start, just turn around and run a hundred blocks or so and you'll find a lakeside village with houses sticking out of the lake. There's a small island with some potatoes and carrots, along with a small three story tower on it.
In order to fix this village you have to make bridges over the water to allow them out of their houses. The nice thing about this village is how easy it is to protect it from creepers and zombies. The first village's coordinates are:(x37)(z 5)
The reason I say first is because there's another village in this seed. It's a long journey, but it's there. The second village can be found at (x837) (z612) and is pretty cool too.
The second village is a small grass village on a mountainous hill with forest nearby. It's pretty expandable and easily defend-able, it's a good village seed, this whole thing.

Minecraft village seed #3: 1026337915
This is cool Minecraft 1.6.4 village seed. It's a massive grass village with a hidden secret. If you drop explore by the backside of the village you'll find a deep hole that leads to one of the most massive underground caverns you'll ever find. So on top of having a cool village, you have a nearly infinite dungeon to explore that will keep you busy with this village seed for hours.
The village starts right next to where you spawn, but just in case, the coordinates are: (x241)(z300).
Have fun with this massive village, it's a great starter village and it's the best generic village you'll find on 1.6.4, and I think it works on 1.5.2 as well.

This is one of my favorites, not because it's necessarily the best Minecraft 1.6.4 village seed, but because it's hilarious. I like to call this one the deformed water village personally.
On this seed you spawn a hundred or so blocks away from the village. You need to travel to (x70) (z-140) in order to find it, but it has horses in the middle of the village, parts of the paths are made of water. Most of the doors are up in the air. There are trapped villagers in most of the houses.
The bright side of this village is the easy access to water, not the paths, but by the lake nearby. Also there's easy access to a desert biome, sugar cane, and horses. I put this village as number 4 because it's cool, not necessarily the best.

Minecraft village seed #5: 1601902618
Moving on to normal Minecraft 1.6.4 village seeds again, this one you spawn on the border of a desert biome and a taiga biome. Just about 50 blocks away is a pretty big desert village with a temple about 20 blocks away from it. Just in case you get lost, the coordinates are (x-278)(z197).
The best part about this village seed is that the desert temple has a diamond horse saddle in it. The only downside to this is that I couldn't find any horses in the immediate area of the village. None the less, that's a pretty epic find for a temple, not to mention the iron and gold bars that can be found in it as well.

Minecraft village seed #6: -1790490563
This is the most interesting seed hands down, not the best, but the most interesting none the less. You can find the village at (x-410)(z265).
This is the smallest village I've ever seen, and on top of being the smallest, it still has a blacksmith. That's it though, a blacksmith, a house, and a well.
One of the nice things about this village is that it has an open cavern right next to it. Unfortunately it's not loaded with resources. I didn't see any in fact, but I may have overlooked something, so go check it out for yourself.

Minecraft village seed #7: 1916709734
This is a fun seed with a massive 1.6.4 grass village. There is no blacksmith unfortunately, but it has 10 houses and one tower, making it one of the easiest to expand villages on the list. To find the village, the coordinates are (x-222)(z264).
In this village you'll find tons of villagers, potatoes, carrots, wheat, and even 2 donkeys! Other than that it's a pretty uneventful village. It's a great generic village though if you want a grass village.
I don't like this Minecraft NPC village seed as much as some of the others, but it's still a great, massive village seed none the less.

Minecraft village seed #8: 9588827121856333
This is a pretty cool desert village. It has a blacksmith and plenty of villagers, even 5 saplings in a chest for you to plant. The only downside is how far you have to walk to find it. The coordinates are (x68)(z294).
It's a pretty generic desert village, a great start for anyone who wants to expand, especially because of how centralized and non-sprawled out this village is. The cacti are nice too if you want to make a creeper/zombie defense that actually kills them.
Overall it's not my favorite seed, but I still think it's a pretty great village none the less. I like the grass villages more, but this Minecraft 1.5.2 village seed is still pretty darn good.

Minecraft village seed #9: 922282861
This one's a pretty cool village seed. It's a desert village in a little peninsula of desert surrounded by a taiga biome, forest biome, and a grass plains biome. On top of that the desert peninsula has rivers running through it and multiple lava pockets exposed in the desert. To find the village go to the following coordinates: (x-172)(z794)
The downside to this Minecraft NPC village seed is that it's a massive walk to get there. Other than that it's a pretty well rounded village and has pretty much everything you need nearby. The lava pockets are a really nice touch to this village seed.

Minecraft village seed #10: -6331827266257900346
This is the final seed on my list and it's number 10 for a reason. It's a long walk to get to the village, it's small, and it has no blacksmith. On top of that it has a really tiny crop area. To find the village use the following coordinates: (x122)(z267).
The bright side to this seed is that there are probably wolves nearby in the taiga, and the village is so small, it's easy to enclose it with a wall and protect it from zombies. If you're looking for a village that you want to populate, then this could easily be the best Minecraft 1.6.4 NPC village seed for you!

Want to know how to make villagers breed?
It sounds weird, I know, but if you add more doors to a Minecraft village, your population will start to increase.
It basically works like this, for every 3 doors you have, you can have 1 villager. Most villages start with too few of doors to even support the villagers they have, so you'll have to add more.
Just placing doors at random doesn't solve anything, you have to build a house, or more technically, you need more sunlight-based light hitting one side of a door than the other, then it counts as a house.
The easiest way to start doing this is to just add a few more doors to the current houses; unfortunately, there probably isn't enough space on the current houses to add very many more villagers. Instead it's best to build apartment like buildings with doors everywhere.
Be Careful Though!
I've read that if you have a door facing another door within 5 squares of it, then it nullifies one or both of the doors. To counteract this, place your doors every other door, or just only build the doors on one side of the apartment.
I usually place one door on each short side of the rectangle, and then have the rest along the long-side of the apartment. Once you get your design down, just start adding multiple floors to your apartment complex. I usually build at least 5 floors to every apartment I make, now my village has over 50 villagers!
Here's a table to show you my favorite apartment complex idea.
X's are dirt, O's are doors, T's are torches
Here's a one sided view of the apartment complex design
There you have it, expand your own Minecraft village
If you follow the pattern above, and place torches in the same spots on the roof, then you'll never have to worry about zombies and you'll get an amazing number of villagers for an extremely compact space.
Be careful where you place them however
You have to build these structures moderately close to the center of the village, which is hard to figure out. Don't fret however, as long as you build within one or two hundred squares of the village center, it will work. I usually use the well as the center point for my village, but some villages might require different estimates.
Have fun with your new Minecraft Villages, and feel free to tell me about your own success stories below in the comment section.

For number that one worked for me but the border village was gone and I spawned in a snow biome then into and there was the desert village and the temple
Daraster on September 16, 2013:
I tested the 5th seed and the desert temple is damaged: no treasure only a cavern.
Luebke on July 22, 2013:
Hi it's a I like the 5th seed best. I just love sand villages and temples. I found a nice horse in plains nearby that jumps 5blocks! also if you look around the village a bit there is an opening to a cave system not sure just how big it is right now but i looks promising there is a lot of coal here I just started it. So wish me luck when i get settled in the village i'll build the apartment for village growth.

Ah okay! That's good to know.

I'm glad you liked the list and the apartment idea, thanks for the vote up.
By the way, only so many stories count before it counts as being too far away from the village center, so don't waste your time going higher than 5-10 stories.
I'm not sure the exact number you can go, but it's also relative to your village center, i.e. an apartment at center could probably go 10+ stories, and an apartment on the edge of the village might only have the first 2-4 stories count. So be careful.
Jessica Peri from United States on July 11, 2013:
This is a great list of village seeds, and your apartment building is massive! I never thought of making a tall building with doors like that to get more villagers - mine are usually one-story with doors placed the way you indicated on your chart. Voted up!
