so, heres the deal, i play minecraft on the most revent available update for java on xbox one, i made the switch from console edition specifically for the aquatic update, but now find that hostile mobs dont spawn.
I built my base on a small island between 2 ocean monuments and there happened to be a few trenches aswell so initially i didnt take notice of the low mob spawning but then i went to the nether, i found one fortress over a lava lake and built a 200x 50 block spawn pad so i can grind through some withers and eventually get a beacon, however, after 2 hours of running around, spawn proofing the surrounding area, loading and unloading, and rebooting, i found only 1 wither skeleton spawn on this pad, with not a single other mob.
since this occourance i have also noted the monuments only have 3-5 guardians in them each and i only came across 1 spider from my whole time caving.
i am playing normal difficulty survival no cheats. Help?
