Right, sorry I should have been more specific, I mean towards the sunrise (East?), and yes I did use large platforms (I had them already built). I used extra grass for the testing purposes, I had 128 blocks. I tested each of the five platforms (one around the bedrock and four jutting off from it) for 10 minecraft days each. I stayed 24 blocks away from the test platform on each occasion. The 128 blocks of grass was divided into four areas of grass in each quadrant of the large platforms. Only the platform heading towards the sunrise spawned any animals. I use vanilla minecraft except for the too many items mod.

I don't know if it is a peculiarity to 1.9.5 or I was just unlucky, someone else would need to run a similar test to confirm or deny it. I have some time tonight so I might re run the test and see what happens :)

Edit: I'll take screenies this time too!
Ah I see hah (I assumed towards the east but wasn't sure :P). Have fun rerunning the tests, would be interesting if they did end up on the same platform

Re-running now :) With exactly 80 blocks of grass on each platform this time :) And all four platforms running simultaneously. So far I have two chickens spawned on one platform, but its only day 2. I'm also remaining on a tower in the centre so as not to reload any chunks unfairly. (It's not very exciting just standing there :P)

It is nice to know that animals do spawn in 1.9.5 though :)

Not a bug, you have to build beneath it so it doesnt fall :)

1.9.5 Animal spawn test results:

Four platforms starting 24 blocks from the bedrock block, one platform in each direction. Each platform is 9x9 containing 80 blocks of grass and the centre block is cobblestone. Each platform is identical and throughout the testing period I did not move from a central pillar. The test ran for 2 hours.

Yellow block: One cow, two sheep, four chickens, one pig.
Posted Image

Red block: Four pigs.
Posted Image

Blue block: One sheep.
Posted Image

Green block: Three pigs and one sheep.
Posted Image

Conclusion
Animal spawning has been fixed in 1.9.5 and given enough time you should be able to spawn animals on any patch of grass in your skyblock world. Make sure your block of grass is as large as you can make it (you can always rip up the grass later) and well lit.

hi, awesome map having lots of fun with it. just thort adding 4 dimonds and another 3 blocks of lava into the map would be intresting, as it would open up new chalenges like: enchanting table, and lava baced chalenges (theres an infinit lava trick like water that uses 4 bits of lava) you could also then have a infint water sorce in neather. just a few idears any way thanks it was cool :P
