Minecraft Easy Villager Transport

December 24, 2014 - Minecraft / Video Games

Moving Villagers from place to place in order to start new colonies can be a difficult and painstaking task.  Villagers are notorious for being stupid and getting themselves killed, and they really dislike being moved to far away from their current village.  Attempting to push them all the way from one village to another is impossible because once you reach too far they will run through you back to their starting location.  You can’t prevent them from running through you (similar to the way other players can run through you).


The solution is to use water.  Moving them downhill, then becomes simple and obvious.  Moving them uphill or across even ground takes more time.  In order to accomplish this, you will need to build an uphill canal.  When building a transport canal of this type, be sure to build all of the walls at least three blocks high.  If you do not, then the villagers will be able to jump out of the canal when they reach a new source block.  If they are close enough to their old village then they will run back and you will have to start all over again.


On their own, Villagers won’t step into the water, so you will need to push them onto the original source block.  Although they will transport through the canal on their own, they will move faster if you ride behind them, pushing them a little, but be careful.  If you push too hard then they will push through you and you will be stuck taking a canal ride for nothing.
