    posted a message on Mob spawn farms not working as intended - spawning behaves in erratic ways

    You will find that the devs just don't care about any type of farm, they seem to want everything done by hand and have gone out of their way to prevent farming of any sort. Its a sandbox game that they want played a certain way (go figure). It's pretty much why I stopped playing bedrock edition and why most people don't take bedrock seriously. Sadly bedrock will never truly have a technical type following.

    posted a message on Mob spawn farms not working as intended - spawning behaves in erratic ways

    Your not the only one to have issues with hostile mob farms within bedrock edition. A quick search of these forums will likely result in hundreds of threads, all having the same issue.


    The problem is not you but bedrock itself. It does not conform with the same rules that the java version does. In fact its more complicated, where they dumbed everything else down in bedrock, they complicated the spawn system. In short, there are 2 types of hostile mob spawns, both surface and cave, and each chunk is also limited to a max number of hostiles. Many worlds in time become pretty much a passive world as eventually over time mobs will spawn in areas that are well hidden from the player, and a soft cap will eventually be reached, effectively turning the world passive.


    On the plus side, mob spawners do not follow rules in respects to mob caps, so they will continually keep pumping out mobs, so long as one funnels any newly spawned mobs outside its spawner count range.


    There are some mob farms designed specifically for bedrock, but they are huge, and difficult to work with in respects to a central killing chamber. Most of the farms only deal with 1 type of spawn type as well either cave or surface. I suggest looking these up, as well as the full set of rules and regulations for hostile mob spawning within bedrock.

    Is there a village nearby? If so that is your problem. The villager will not harvest or plant wheat outside of the village radius.

    Looking at the second attached picturer, I can see that you have dirt blocks above the hoppers. This actually blocks the hoppers from picking up any items. Try removing the water stream sources, and placing a second hopper pointing directly into the lower ones, then replacing your water stream sources. They should at least be picking up items at that point in time.


    Edit:

    I guess that hoppers are allowed to pick up items if they are path blocks, so not sure what's going on, to be honest. I know that most sorters do work on bedrock or at least they used to. I admit that I haven't really played much Minecraft now for at least several major versions, mainly because the game is broken on console, and not getting any better.

    Then simply don't play the Bedrock version. It's your choice. Nobody forced you. Just play the Java version.


    Its funny that you say that, as we were forced over to bedrock when they decided not to continue supporting 4J's version which in a lot of ways was vastly superior to bedrock crap. Mark my words bedrock version is killing Minecraft on console, and pc. The only thing it has going for it is that it works on mobile devices and supports servers. In every other aspect, it pales in comparison. I do play the java version, but it's so much more convenient to play on console. I've played with alot of people on console, and almost no one is playing it anymore because they don't like the changes that were made to the game. They made lots of promises to get us playing it and then broke most of them. The FAQ clearly stated that it would be a direct port with exception to redstone mechanics which would run the way the devs meant it to run. Since then they have altered mob spawning/despawning, wither behaivor, altered village mechanics, and I could go on and on and on about the bugs they keep ignoring, but they sure can push and fix mechanics that lead to making the market place work.

    posted a message on So about mobs basically never despawning...

    Truth is the spawn, despawn system in bedrock is total and utter garbage. The whole system really needs an overhaul and should return back to its roots in java. Its tried and tested, it not only works it works well.


    We don't need surface and cave spawns, this is only put in place, because they knew that with this system mobs would get stuck in areas and never despawn, and because of that they wanted some mobs to be able to spawn at night, as a result, they split mobs into two different categories, surface and cave, this does nothing but complicate something that should be simple.


    Mobs should despawn unless they are tagged, or picked up some equipment or items. The further away a mob is the more likely it should despawn. However the devs will never return to this system because it has one fatal flaw, and that is it would allow the construction of mob farms that actually work like most java mob farms once again, and they don't want us farming mobs in this respect.


    Minecraft has thrived and grew on console, and bedrock in 2 years pretty much managed to kill off a large portion of its player base. What remains are young kids and the die-hard ones which will not let go. It's sad really, the game just kept growing and growing, until we got this bedrock crap which caters to too many platforms.

    Its been this way for a long time now on bedrock, and looks like it won't be getting better anytime in the future.

    Quote from Tails1»

    Welcome to the bedrock edition where everything is reduced so that mobile players can handle the game without performance issues.


    Actually, in a recent Minecraft stream with Helen, I asked her about bumping up the mob density and overall count, to which she stated that too many people are complaining about there being too many mobs in the game. Would really like to know where they are getting their feedback from, as I've seen this type of post countless times here, and the bug tracker is also chock-full of lack of mobs.

    posted a message on Question about iron farms

    Yeah, I saw these a while back, but they still are not stacked iron golem farms in respects some something like the titan or trench in that they use the same villagers, and same space, more or less making villages use the same area.


    In fact, I took it a step further and did manage to stack 8 villages all on top of each other. The most difficult part was that each time a new village was created I had to use 2 new detector villagers. However, that's as far as I took it. 8 villages, with 2 doors, and 2 villagers....it took a very long time to get that far.


    It can be done, but it's not worth the time and effort.

    posted a message on Question about iron farms

    4J's version was MUCH closer to java then bedrock ever was. When bedrock was just getting started they stated that they planed to be as close to java version as possible with the exception of redstone, but here we are, with more and more and more garbage they put into bedrock, all supposidly because 'we' asked for it to be this way.


    I dunno who the hell they are asking, but they better start looking elsewhere for advice. Your right I'm upset that they no longer support a version that at least worked the way I wanted it to, that resembled minecraft the way it is, not this utter garbage we have right now called bedrock.


    This isn't change, not when most of the community as a whole come here time and time and time again looking for why something is not working, only to figure out its because bedrock made such changes just to deter certain playstyles.

    Really you are going to go there? You don't like being called a fanboy, but yet you choose to defend bedrock at every chance, I don't get it. We hardly have any decent options on console, 4J's version is no longer supported and updated.

    Pretty much impossible due to the fact that villagers are not shared between villages like in java version.

    I would try copying your world to creative first and then destroying the breeder, to see if that makes the farm work. If yes then you know the problem, and if no then its something else.
