I decided to make a slime farm on my sever, which i play with my two friends on. At first, i checked if a chunk i was planning to build it in is actually a slime chunk. I dug one layer on y 11 and slimes spawned normally, so i began digging a whole chunk. During mining, i found some slimes spawning here as well. I finished, put some platforms below y 39, spawned iron golems and created killing and collecting system (which works, checked it few times). But since then, after several hours of afking, farm did not produce a single slimeball, and im getting a little frustrated why. Yes, i lit up surface and caves around, yes, i was afk about 40 blocks away, so not too close, not too far, yes, i went about 500 blocks away to reload chunks, when i removed torches from platformes, other hostile mobs started to spawn rapidly, like 10 mobs after half a minute. I can't find in the internet any more things i could do to make this farm work. Any suggestions?
Are the slimes able to see the golems? If they need line of sight, you can replace some of the fences with open fence gates. Fences don't allow melee attacks through (you end up targeting the fence gate instead), but they do allow line of sight and ranged attacks (arrows, thrown potions, creeper explosions) through.
Yes, you can see golems from almost every point of each platform, checked it with hitboxes turned on (this blue line on their eyes is always above the fences). When i went back from afk, i also checked the layers, but there weren't any slimes, they just don't spawn at all.
I tried glass and only one layer of fences, this might improve efficiency, but has nothing to do with spawning itself. As i said, i checked the platforms after afking, nothing was there, so this wouldn't help in any way.
Ive been having this same problem with all other mobs spawning on man made farms. My slime farm works fine but the other farms wont respawn the mobs after they are flushed once. Its the strangest thing. All conditions perfect and no respawns. Even ilmangos gold farm. Your farm looks 100% correct
Mine is also built based on illmango video. After another 2 weeks of playing on the server still not a single slimeball produced. Is it possible it's some sort of server or server hosting site problem?
Possibly. Idk if our problems are related but mine is singleplayer too. Creeper farms, general mob farms and witch farms have the same result and i can make any mob farms there is in my sleep. If you have the world download for his slime farm would you mind telling me if they are spawning there? Mine arent in his download either. Im not sure if its my end or some update bug
