Desert wells are sandstone structures that generate in desert biomes.

Generation[edit]

Desert wells generate only in desert biomes. They have a 11000[JE only] or 1500[BE only] chance to be generated in any desert chunk, which makes them a rare sight. It is possible for a well to generate around a cactus. The well structure will still generate with the "Generate Structures" option disabled.

In Bedrock Edition, desert wells have a chance to generate in a cluster between 16 blocks.

Desert well generation is capped at the coordinate Y-128. If desert terrain is extended higher than Y-128 (via add-on), no desert well will be generated.

Structure[edit]

Desert wells are built of sandstone blocks and slabs with a water source inside.
