The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
It's back. Patched to make it so iron farms still work. I'm making a new design for my village- It's a village square with shops all around it, and the roofs are low enough so golems can't spawn inside. In the middle there is a big pit with water set up to sweep the golems out (and a zombie villager on a little platform in the middle to draw them there.) It should keep the golems down, serve as an iron farm, still look decent, and allow me to walk around and trade with them.
I have several well-tended villages and the golem population is not uniform. My first village has around 50 of them. In my other villages there were only one or two until recently, when one village suddenly started spawning golems again even though there have been no raids. That second village now has around 15 golems. I like the golems because my cute little villagers are safer, but they do get underfoot.
