Turning old enemies into new friends
A long time ago was looking at using large slimes to push mobs. Didn't work well without access to packed ice so let it go.
Ran across the video again and realized it could be used in a slightly different way now to allow controlled water freezing. So here it is. Very cool. Much closer to the piston/dispenser farms that are more common.
Frosted ice is beneath the grass paths. This both allows the zombie to slide easily and allows him to freeze the nearby water.
Planning to use it for water flushing farms(mobs and plants). Should be quite a bit more supped up than anything that has come before.
Something odd I noticed is that Frost Walker will work the second a mob is loaded, even if they haven't moved. Could be used as a game/chunk loading detector.
Sheep Farm 2.0
Should have built this sooner. Makes the process of wool collecting much faster. Decided to focus on maximizing grass regrowth. There's other ways to do it, but this gave good results.
Pre-roof, using iron bars to keep them from all crushing to one side or another. Lots of lighting to help that grass along.
You wind back and forth shearing and end up back at the start where you can either go again or be on your merry way. Normally end up with several stacks before leaving them to recharge.
That's all for now. Heading off to work on the new farms
