Towns and Towers Mod

Towns and Towers adds lots of new structures to Minecraft, as well as variants of new ones. After installing this mod, you can find all new Villages and Pillager Outposts which are biome dependent. But there’s also Ships too.

This is one of many of our Mod Wikis, here at Minecraft Guides. If you're interesting in finding out about more of Minecraft's Best Mods, then check out our dedicated section! We allow you to sort by Forge, Fabric, Minecraft Version and Genre!


When it comes to Villages, 16 new variants are included. These can be found in the Badlands, Beach, Birch Forest, Flower Forest, Forest, Grove, Jungle, Meadow, Mushroom Fields, Old Growth Birch Forest, Old Growth Taiga, Snowy Slopes, Sparse Jungle, Sunflower Plains, Swamp and Wooded Badlands.

Villages are themed around the Biome they’re in. So in the Mushroom Fields, Villagers will live inside of giant Mushrooms. Whereas in Jungles, the Villages feel more primitive, made from Hay, like they’re tribal.

Some Villages aren’t multiple structures either. At the Beach, a Village can be an individual Lighthouse, which is run by the Lighthouse Master, who has their own trades. Or on the Snowy Slopes, a Village looks like a Ski Resort.

Villagers themselves aren’t changed, only the structures they reside in. Locations like the Badlands Village are the largest, whereas in Swamps, the Villagers have made use of their surroundings and even live in giant tree trunks.

Pillager Outposts

Pillager Outposts have also received an overhaul, with there being 22 different variants. They can be found in the Badlands, Beach, Birch Forest, Desert, Flower Forest, Forest, Grove, Jungle, Meadow, Mushroom Fields, Old Growth Birch Forest, Old Grown Taiga, Savanna, Snowy Beach, Snowy Plains, Snowy Slopes, Snowy Taiga, Sparse Jungle, Sunflower Plains, Swamp, Taiga and Wooded Badlands.

Like with Villages, Pillager Outposts are just new structures. The mechanics and style of Pillagers wont be changed.

With the mod installed, Outposts will be turned into Camps, Forts, Shipwrecks, Towers and more. As the mod uses vanilla loot tables, there’s plenty of Chests to search which contain loot too.

Some of these structures can even be conquered, turning them into suitable bases.


A new structure type is added with Towns and Towers, which is the Sail Ship. These can be found in Cold Ocean, Deep Cold Ocean, Deep Ocean, Lukewarm Ocean and regular Ocean Biomes.

On these Ships, you can find both Villagers and Pillagers. On the screenshot above, you can see a fleet of ships, with each one containing some different Villagers who can be traded with.
