Can you now get villagers through zombie spawners?

I see people playing around with Minecraft version 1.4, and I see that zombie spawners now also spawn infected villagers.

On another video I saw how you can cure an infected villager. I wonder if you could cure the villagers that are spawned from the zombie spawner.

  • How do I get rid of these bats on minecraft
  • What items can be farmed fully automatically?
  • How fast are baby zombies?
  • What can I do to secure my towns/castles/hovels from climbing spiders?
  • Binding a Minecraft command to a key
  • How do you host a multi-player survival game in Minecraft?
  • This would be great for me. I have been wanting to bring villagers to my base, but it would be quite a project as the nearest village is miles away. I have a zombie spawner just under my base, so that would be ideal.

    EDIT:

    I answered the question bellow with screenshots. Here is a video I made of the system:

  • Do positive coordinate locations give more ore in Minecraft?
  • Minecraft Vanilla 1.9 crash with problematic frame ig8icd64.dll
  • Can trees grow without sunlight?
  • Execute or Testfor a named dropped Item?
  • Binding a Minecraft command to a key
  • Can I copy part of a Minecraft multi-player (SMP) map to a single-player map?

    I usually don’t answer my own question, but in this case I have to I guess.

    I am running Minecraft pre-release 12w36a and I can confirm that you can cure infected villagers spawned from dungeon zombie spawners in survival mode.

    I had a zombie spawner underneath my base that I never destroyed, I am glad I kept it. I set up a small killing device for killing the unwanted zombies, and waited for a infected villager. In my case it spawned one every 30 zombies or so.

    When I got one I used a splash potion of weakness (water bottle + fermented spider eye + gunpowder). As soon as I threw it I got my golden apple in my hand, and just right-clicked the villager. At this point he started shaking.

    While he was shaking, I waited around. About 5 minutes later he turned into a normal villager.

    At this point I wanted to know if he would despawn, so I went exploring in my world, slept for a few days, and went to the nether a few times. When I came back he was still standing there, which was great.


    I do not know if this will stay in the game. I will update the game once in a while to see if it still works in the snapshots.

    For now I will work on setting up my village, I am glad I don’t have to build the 1000+ block railway anymore.


    I can confirm this works in 1.4.2, see the video in the question for more details.
