Hey guys, so I've had the itch to start making some YouTube tutorials on some of the farms I cone up with... I've seen a need for it as most java farms don't work for better together. I'm debating which to do for my first video.
The first is an effecient mob drop farm, it fully utilized the spawning mechanics of the game, so you constantly fill the mob cap, then drop and kill the mobs. I just finished the first section of it in my single player world, it gets me about 1 stack of gunpowder an hour, and 2 stacks of bones, those were the 2 I was paying attention to. It can be made into 4 sections, so it should generate 4 stacks of gunpowder an hour. It's not a super complex design, but it is a lot of work. It spawns mobs day and night, and utilizes surface spawns only.
The other is a SUPER simple side by side villager trading hall. It's quick to build, no rail system, no redstone, no gap between villagers, not a lot of resources and expandable easily to any size you want. The only real thing it doesn't have is an ejection and killing system for the villagers, you kill the ones you don't want by hand. Its easy to hook into any villager breeder you make.
If you are interested, which would you like to see as my first video?
I voted for the mob farm only because I have a (100% manual) trading hall already. I rail them from the village into their stalls, and rail them back out (into the iron golem pit) if I need to dispose of them. I are simple man.
Figuring out how to get day and night surface spawns would be interesting.
Cool, thanks for the response, I'll eventually do both, just seeing where I want to start. The mob farm is really nice... took a while to build in survival, but man is it worth it. I play with my wife and 2 little kids, and everyone wants gun powder to make rockets with, 1 solid overnight leaving the Xbox on and we are good to go!

Okay now I want to know how you do that. My controller shuts off after a few minutes and not long after that Minecraft blows up back to the Home page. I thought AFK was a thing of the past. HOW FIX THIS?!?
Are you playing on Xbox? If so you should making sure your Xbox is set to never sleep or go into power saving. Your controller shutting off is fine, I turn my controller off to not burn through the battery. I've done many days of afk chillin.
Yeah my Xbox is set to never sleep. If I go AFK the box remains on, but Minecraft will have crashed back to the Home screen. I can sometimes catch it when it's still on the "Your controller has disconnected" screen and re-connect the controller.
Last night I tried removing the batteries and plugging the controller in via USB. With the left stick rubber-banded walking forward (into a wall), the game stayed stable for over an hour. Then after picking up the controller (still connected) and checking iron farm results, I again rubber-banded it this time walking backwards. Came back an hour later and the game had crashed to the Home page.
