Hey guys I was just woundering what is the furthest a mob will spawn from you? I think the wiki says its 64 blocks, does anyone know if this is right or if it is more or less?

Don't you love living in the future as we do?  Isn't it grand?  We have personal computers, and high-speed internet installed in cars and coffee bars, even on our cordless cellular telephones, which are small enough to carry around in our pockets.  And now there's even this thing called "the wiki" which has the answers to almost all of our questions.

...yet somehow we still choose to post said questions to the forum anyway, instead of looking up the answers for ourselves.

Mobs spawn naturally within a 15x15 chunk (240x240 block) area around the player. When there are multiple players, mobs can spawn within this distance of any of them. However, mobs that move farther than 128 blocks from any player will immediately despawn, so the mob spawning area is effectively limited to spheres with a radius of 128 blocks, centered at each player.

Yes it is great it allows you to meet arrogant SOBs that cannot see the person has read the info and would like clarification!

So thanks for the clarification you may go back to placing your head back where the sun does not shine until you come to talk down to someone else who is stuck and asks a question.

You said you think that the wiki says 64, which it does not say.  Is that supposed to indicate to me that you have read it, or that you haven't?  Thoroughly?  Recently?

Hi, I don't think we've met.  My name's IronMagus, and I'm kind of a jerk.  I'm sure we'll get along just fine.

Oh do you know if mobs walk around over 24 blocks away from the player and if they do is that in height as well as long the X/Z axis?


PS Nice to meet you, next time you should introduce yourself like that straight off.


EDIT: Nevermind I found it under the AI section of the Mobs page.

I love internet arguments. They're fun to read.

I have no idea what this is. Click on it, though. It's fun.

I laughed pretty hard at this.

Someone doesn't seem to understand what spherical means.
