I was making a fun video when I got this idea. I want a way to get my mob farm to flood the area above the grinder with monsters for an epic battle. I tried a regular waterflow from top to bottom and this creates a strong downward pull. You swim up it very slowly and mobs might drown or stay stuck to the bottom.

Then I got this idea.  You line the walls of your elevator with signs or ladders every other layer, and place water source blocks inbetween. This lets you swim straight up without any downforce affecting you or mobs, and there is an airpocket every other layer, so you can't drown, and more importantly, the mobs can't drown.

This means you can put your grinder anywhere in relation to your mob spawning tower. It used to be limited from gravity, mobs only flowed downhill. The only mob that doesn't go up the advanced elevator are spiders, they just sit at the bottom. I think because they are just 1 block high, they can't jump from one layer up to the next.

I have a video uploading now with a demonstration and an epic battle. At the end, just before my 10 minute limit, I peak inside the mob tower to show off the elevator.

So...

Like this?  Wouldn't pure water work also, as long as it was short enough to prevent drowning?

That's right, this elevator is powered by MURDER and ANIMAL CRUELTY.

yea. like that. The trickiest part is the bottom. How to get a way into it without water spilling out everywhere, but signs are the answer to everything.

Or you can put water in a 1x1 hole next to your mine shaft. (has to be a certain corner or it won't work) and then hold space nex to it and you'll float straight up.

So from above you'd have:

[]  :D  :(
:iapprove:  []  :stone:
[]  :stone:  []

The centre being the main hole.
If that doesn't make sense i'll try and find the youtube video i used
There must be some kind of way out of here, Said the creeper to the player.
