Cartographers maps

So I did some testing with cartographers this evening. The three cartographers i breed up all produced the same woodland mansion map. I did some research and this is normal. A new cartographer will show the nearest undiscovered mansion/monument. This is all fine and good, Except that the cartographers I had at Spidertown ( this being northwest of spawn ) all showed the nearest mansion in the south west section of the world. As luck would have it this mansion is out side the world boarder. Why do I bring this up? Well from what I can tell about how the map is chosen when the trade becomes available there are no more undiscovered mansions with in our world border. I was kinda hoping to capture a illager or two my self.  So is it possible to have spawn eggs for these evil doers? Or are we just going to be out of luck?

Future Projects

The map we are playing on is 3+ years old. we moved the border recently to accomodate for the new woodland mansions (when they came out) but it had little to no effect on being able to actually find any more mansions. There are 1 or 2 mansions within the border and i believe that theres a project in the works to make a mansion work similar to how the Catacombs work. If you dont know what that is Catacombs its like a mazelike underground dungeon that has many monsters and chests inside full of loot. But after so many hours these chests and mobs and things inside of catacombs all refresh. If you would like to experience it you can go to /warp Frost or /warp Cata. If your good at combat it can be TOTALLY worth your time.  P.S. left click the iron doors they work weird for some reason
