    I /cremoved the chests at the mob farm but will have to rework the whole thing as the drop is not high enough to kill the witches that seem to be spawning everywhere now. It seems somebody installed some tripwire triggered pistons too (maybe in an attempt to kill the witches?) but that didn't...

    My Minecraft enthusiasm has faded. Not sure if its going to return.. i usually have a pretty short attention span with games.

    Oh i see.. he covers the whole spawning floor with pressure plates to make the water flow correctly. I guess it will be easier for me to just kill the spiders that climb down the drop shaft though.

    Yep i've seen his videos.. he used passive spawners that rely on the mobs moving around so they fall down from level to level. Unfortunately that doesn't work that well anymore because the mobs now tend to freeze a few seconds after spawning when the player is a bit further away. So i decided to...

    I think its all stuff that we found while lighting up the caves in the area. Shouldn't be a problem if you take what you need. Maybe leave a bit of building material in case something needs to be fixed or redecorated.

    It is possible to create non despawning Zombies and Skeletons though. :D The trick is to have them pickup items. Panda4994 even made a mob spawning switch by exploiting this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-MJqk1bF68

    Ok here are the screenies of the item sorter: To the right is the dropoff chest with the item elevator behind it. Left the 3 chests with their sorting mechanism. These can then be repeated over and over again. The hoppers second from top are the ones holding the filter items, 22 pieces...

    The smallest design for the sorters that i found so far is this: I am using a slightly different design though that doesn't need a torch below the hopper but powers the adjacent block instead so it is possible to sort the stuff into 3 double chests that are stacked on top of each other. I'll...

    BTW in 1.5.1 they also fixed the problem with using Lava Buckets as fuel. The hopper below the furnace will now also suck the empty bucket out of the fuel slot, so you can power your autosmelters with lava as well.

    You might want to check out the Mob Farm. I installed an automatic item sorter there now. It also uses a small dropper tower as an item elevator... though its not the best design as i found out yesterday when i started installing the same thing on the witch farm you can just power the middle one...

    Being one of those "LOLFARMEVERYTHING" type players THIS (the last sentence in the quote above) is exactly why i build farms. I was of the impression that the work i put in building farms benefits all players on the server, freeing them from the mostly boring task of collecting certain...

    There's a nice little design for a self feeding charcoal maker on minecraftwiki. Pretty cool... ---------- Post added at 04:29 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:19 PM ---------- Actually this can even be more simplified, i just fiddled around with it and came up with this:

    Tree Eater Farm Ladies and Gentlemen, the new Tree Farm is now officially finished. A few words of instruction: The farm seems to work flawlessly with Birch, Spruce and Jungle trees. Just do as the sign says, fill the dispenser with bonemeal if necessary and then plant a sapling...
