    Passive mobs have an entirely different cap from hostile mobs, and if you do kill all passive mobs your world will be very empty since the cap for passive mobs is only 10 - while 10 times that number can easily spawn within the spawn chunks alone during world generation, which is pretty much the only time they spawn (threads like this show just how hard it can be to repopulate the world with passive mobs, there are even "bug" reports regarding this but it is just due to their low cap and spawning, which encourages breeding).

    As for hostile mobs, unless you are on a server I can't really think of any reason why you aren't seeing any mobs; even if there happened to be a lot of caves you'd still see them on the surface at night since they prefer to spawn in flat open spaces due to the pack spawning mechanics, plus I see plenty even with the size of cave systems you can find in 1.6.4 (or my modded worlds with even larger caves; in one recent world I killed an average of 100 mobs per hour, all "natural" encounters, not from farms); the only way this would stop them from spawning is if they were collecting in some spot within 32 blocks of where you are, to close to despawn over time (which can happen if e.g. water pushes them into one spot).

    What do you see for the entity count (E: x/x) in F3? The second number should normally be around 100 or more, with 70 of those being hostile mobs. If it seems normal do you see the first value jump up when looking in a particular direction (this shows the number that are visible)? If it does then there is a concentration of entities in that direction (assuming you are not looking at an animal farm or room filled with item frames, paintings, armor stands, etc). If it is not an issue (e.g. no named hostile mobs that you don't want to despawn) you could try switching to Peaceful for a moment and compare the entity count to that on Easy-Hard; the difference will be the number of hostile mobs and should be around 70 within a few seconds.

    Well, I was on Peaceful mode and tried to check out the entity count, it was 132, after that I switched to Hard mode and it suddenly became 182, I looked around and somehow a lot of monsters appeared, I'm so glad it worked :').

    Thank you so much, guys :wub:

    Since we're on the topic of the Nether, right after I bought the game my friend and I joined a multiplayer server. For some reason I found brewing really intriguing but I had no clue where to get nether wart. My friend told me to go to the nether and shave them off of a giant troll's back and I believed him.

    wow great troll XD

    Sure, if there's light (from fire, or anything else), then mobs do not spawn. Most mobs only spawn when it is light-level 7 or less.

    It could also be that you're hitting "mob caps" - that is, a lot of mobs have spawned in the area, up to a maximum value, so more won't spawn. There could be lots of mobs in caves underneath you.

    if you leave the area entirely (more than 128 blocks away), and go back, then those will have all disappeared.


    Hmm, I'll try to kill most of my animals hoping they would come back, I miss them ;(.
    Also, when I go mining in caves which are very far away from my house, I only encounter 2-3 monsters.

    Mines so stupid I was embarrassed even as a noob.


    So I had never played Minecraft before but my friend kept talking it up. He told me about this dark place called "The Nether" which was home to these super scary white things called "Ghasts". I never bothered to look up any pictures, and my young mind quickly created a super-scary mental image of ghasts.


    So I start my first world and begin my house. Everything's going great until I look out my door and low and behold, a giant white thing!!!


    Now I didn't want to die from burning so I shut my game off and didn't play for the rest of the day. I never realized that the nether could only be accessed through a portal, and there was no way ghasts could be attacking me on my very first day.


    Next day I tell my friend what happened and he was really confused. So we went on my world together and he looks out my door.


    "Dude, that's a sheep."

    Howdy, so I'm playing Minecraft 1.12.1 or something and lately I haven't been seeing any monsters??

    ALSO my mob grinder isn't functioning I tried lowering the height but it's still useless.

    The only mobs I see are just some animals I keep and animals walking around aimlessly.

    I don't use mods just Optifine bc my laptop is laggy lol, and I'm on Hard mode, with gamerule doMobSpawning on true.


    Sooo anyone can help? If you can I would be thankful :)

    Mine is pretty stupid :rolleyes:


    Sooooo it started when my brotha bought Minecraft and downloaded it for all my cousins, on IOS ofc.

    we were like 7 or something, I was the only one getting a hang of building and stuff so they made me build the house (a dirt house on snowy mountains how beautiful) and 'protect' it (they just wanted to get rid of me lol).


    They were all outside killin some sheep and getting any block they find.

    long story short, I had terrible English when I was 5, well I knew the basics but I was too lazy to read anything (English isn't my first language).

    They got me a **** ton of wood and I saw the Crafting Table, I thought it looked cool and thought of using it as flooring :P

    anyways I was just filling the floor with crafting tables when suddenly a window with lots of stuff popped up on my screen, I thought it was some kind of bug.

    I shrugged it of, but it kept haunting me until a few hours I thought of pressing the 'nice looking floor' and yea lol I discovered the legendary Crafting Table and changed the way of our miserable life. :nssnss: by Drazile12
