Now that its pretty well confirmed by 4j that spawn eggs with be in TU9, how do they work. I'm looking at the wiki and it's a little confusing.
Does EVERYTHING spawn by way of egg than? Or will hostile/passive mobs still spawn similar to how they spawn now and you can spawn extra mobs by way of spawn egg?
mobs will still spawn the way the do now. Basically spawn eggs are used in creative mode for testing and designing. You can put eggs in a dispenser and control how many and when you want mobs to spawn. You don't have to depend on light levels.
Good to hear, I think that would really mess with survival, wouldn't even be close to the same.
it would up the troll factor for a host... imagine being able to create a room under your friends house, spawn a spider, and leave it there, essentially driving them a little nutty until they found it (or you could go creeper egg crazy and hook up a dispenser to a rapid clock and flood their home with creepers if they hit a button that you place under a sign saying "Don't push this")
