Behind you

Having trouble getting my mob grinder to spawn monsters.

Tower design with water coming out of dispensers timed with a hopper clock (currently passing 62 sticks back and forth).

Spawn platform is split into 4 triangular sections with a centralised drop. Each ‘triangle’ measures 21x21 blocks, split into 3 levels. Water reaches the hypotenuse edge of the triangle, but does not pour over.

Height of platform is 200 blocks, with a 31 block fall to hoppers at height 169. Platforms are made of smooth stone blocks. Platforms are about 3/4 covered with planks making a rising ceiling starting at 3 blocks above the corner dispensers, rising to 14 blocks above the drop chute. Rest is completed by coloured glass until it reaches a central 7x7 shaft tower.

I have viewing platforms in the central shaft (clear glass walled) at lvl 169. At level 220 above the platforms using coloured glass to monitor water flow. And at lvl 200 25 blocks away from nearest 2 platforms outer edge (spawn platforms at distance 25-67 from this platform) which can see down the clear glass ‘drop zone’.

Platforms themselves are pitch black, except for the last 2 layers along the hypotenuse which are very dim, but just light enough to see if the platform is flooded or not.

System appears to be working, as in the water flows and recedes with the clock pulse. But no mobs ever seem to spawn.

I’ve got a similar design about 2000 blocks away that works. But this one just doesn’t seem to spawn any mobs. Tower starts at sea level above a deep ocean. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong?

PS4 bedrock edition. Survival mode.

You didn't accidentally build via half-slabs?

Nope, full blocks. The roof has some half slabs, but I don’t want anything spawning there...

I’m wondering if my chicken farm on Lvl 100 is the issue. Will have to do a Bernard Manning in the Xmas season later today to find out...

Ah. You'd probably reached Entity limit in the area.

There is a new nether hub out at the Jungle portal. Construction and renovations are finally complete. Drop by and check it out.

The far west hallway from the Jungle hub to my area of the world is finally complete. I invite you all to take a stroll and see the sights (it's only about 1000 blocks long). The design was inspired by the pre-heresy scheme of Legio Mortis. You can pop through the portal and take a look outside my base if you want but there isn't much to see at the moment. Things are still a bit primitive there and I've got all the villagers locked up so the village doesn't get depleted by a raid.

I've started preparing this update for the DakkaDakka Minecraft server but as it requires Java 16 I just need to change a few more things around behind the scenes on the host server. This means it won't be ready today, hopefully tomorrow, but no promises.

This is just part 1 of the Caves and Cliffs update and doesn't include the world height change, so this isn't the update where we'll do a world reset. That's the next one coming nearer the end of the year.

In order to allow for ease of access to the new blocks, ores and generation I will probably set up another teleporter like the one we have for the Jungle.

We've got one in the west, so how about the distant East? That way, maybe we can get Anvildude to finish the East tunnel.

Hey, the East tunnel's done. It just... stops. Very abruptly. When it gets to my place. Because nobody lives further out.

The DakkaDakka server update is almost ready, but I'm going to complete it tomorrow, probably around 8pm BST (7pm UTC, 3pm EDT) so that I can be around for a few hours in case there are any issues or tweaks needed.

The DakkaDakka Minecraft Server has been upgraded to Minecraft 1.17 Caves & Cliffs update part I!

I have set up a portal at spawn in the portal room beneath spawn. This portal takes you to a village at the foot of a mountain in the new terrain. If you do not know where the portal room is at spawn, follow the glow signs:







The portal on the left in this image goes to Caves & Cliffs terrain. The portal on the right goes to the Bamboo Jungle from the earlier update.

Oooh, fancy. The whole portal room is honestly kinda keen.

Hmm, that's pretty weird. I have not encountered this, but I have only two explanations for why it can be so. The first explanation is quite simple: you have reached the maximum number of mobs in this territory. It is necessary to remove some parts of the mobs if you want them to still appear, otherwise, this will not happen (but I have not encountered this yet). And the second explanation is that the server has limitations. Some servers are created with restrictions and you can't do too much of anything there. I choose the servers here https://minecraft.buzz/category/hcf and so far, I haven't met with any restrictions. I repeat I have never had anything like you before. I think some of what I said is exactly one of your problems. Good luck to you!

Stepkid and I explored east a bit from the portal into the new block area, mostly wanting to get away from the village in case of attracting mobs. At some point we should get a wall around it -- maybe a group project?

Anyway, there's a small but basic underground lodge, signposted, pretty much due east from the village, for anyone heading that direction. We found a large sea soon after that, and got as far as building a bit of a dock for anyone wanting to keep on east.

I tried flying around but the terrain wouldn't load/render quickly enough and I kept crashing into mountains. I found an interesting village to the north so I might set up operations there. I haven't quite decided yet.
