I've seen some pretty efficient cobblestone generators, but i always imagine one that can beat 'em all. One that is really efficient and useful. Any ideas?

This one creates a kind of... growing tower of cobblestone that becomes 12 blocks tall. Make a staircase to the top and just mine, mine, mine away  :iapprove:

...just mine it from the ground? I don't understand why anyone would need a lava-based generator just to get cobblestone. Mining is also faster.

The problem is that mining this way means you either ends up far away from your home or you end up with a large hole/room/cave close to your home.
You also need to constantly move and you run the risk of ending up in a dark cave or a pool of lava.

This one of the best designs I have seen, but it's still not perfect since you still need to move around a bit to collect the cobblestone.

The trick for a perfect cobblestone generator is to eliminate the time delay that happens when you break the cobblestone block and are waiting for the next cobblestone block to spawn, but at the same time brings the loot directly to you so you don't need to move around. The only downside with a cobblestone generator like this is that it requires the player to be active.

The other kind of cobblestone generator is the type where you can just tape the mousebutton down and go afk for a while.

or maybe just use a mod that makes pistons that break whats in front of them, put it by a generator and all the work of mining is done on its own.

You can use a pickaxe to mine from the cobble generator?  :iapprove:

I never understood why people would need a cobble generator :I. If you mine underground, you can find diamonds and other stuff, and it doesn't require you to build anything. I did build an auto collecting cobble generator with BTW once, but that was just for me to make my mob trap and i could just go build, come back and have 9 stacks of cobble again.

Cobble generators really only come into play during custom maps or if you have redpower/buildcraft installed. Then they really shine.
