Slime farming is a method of automatically spawning and killing slimes to easily obtain slimeballs. Before building a slime farm, first decide whether to build it in a slime chunk or swamp biome. Tip: There are sites that can map slime chunks for you. This method requires an underground room to be dug out before the farm is constructed. This method has the advantage of not requiring a dug-out room prior to building the farm, and the size of the farm is not limited, unlike the slime-chunk method.[Expert Version] ilmango's Gold/XP farm (MAX XP)
The first step in constructing either farm is the spawning place. In most farm designs, spawning platforms are created which spawn slimes that are then moved to a killing trap, usually a drowning trap to split larger slimes down and dispatch the smallest size.
It is important to light the spawn platforms up, otherwise other hostile mobs can spawn too. It is also recommended to light the area in a block radius around the farm, to keep the hostile mob cap as low as possible.
The second step in building a slime farm is transportation. In pre As slimes can swim in snapshot 14w06a and above, specific water placement is required in Java Edition 1. The final step in building a slime farm is the separation and killing trap. To separate the different sizes down to the smallest, a drowning trap is usually used.
The largest type of slime is split to the medium size, and medium to small. The slimes are then taken off to another trap to be killed, usually another drowning trap. For greater efficiency, the separation trap could be used as a killing trap as well, although this can be difficult in slime farm traps if the spawning room is too small. Alternatively, a water stream carrying the slimes flowing into a cactus trap can be used. Hoppers around the base of the cacti then collect the drops.
This has the advantage of killing all sizes of slimes without the need for separation. A quick and lossless method for killing slimes is using magma blocks. Slimes can either be pushed there with a water stream, drawn there by iron golemsor allowed to roam off the side on their own. A hopper minecart track underneath the magma blocks can be used to collect the drops. To automatically collect the slimeballs produced by the farm, create a hole below the end of the trap.
Many slime farms, especially those involving iron golems and the mechanic of slimes sinking into a water pit, were broken in 1. Jioge has the solution with this simple trap. Slimes are now able to swim upward and on a horizontal axis, so it is important to take note of how Jioge places the water in the drowning trap. This slime farm's design is quite different from most of the others. It uses fewer spawning pads, which, due to the way the slime spawning algorithm works, increases the spawning rates see video for more details.
The alarm pigmen stay aggro, but it doesn't transfer over to the newly spawned pigmen. This is on a Spigot 1. I even added 4 additional alarm pigmen on the four cardinal directions and that still did not work.
It's almost as if they can't "see" me because when I climb the ladder to the top of the farm they get aggro again. I have looked every where for a solution but no luck. Edit: I would also like to add that I do not have the anvils around the trap doors as in the tutorial, but he said they weren't necessary I tested it with People told me they had problems with 8, but 10 or 12 fixed it.
Reading farther down the comments there appears to be an undefined problem with spigot servers and this build not the render distance or mob cap. It was the simple version.
It must just be the spigot server I guess It was working with out a hitch for the first day and then it just stopped all of a sudden. Rollback Post to Revision RollBack. Which version? Posts Quoted:. Previous Thread.
At the moment the farm will work well for about 5 minutes, the zombie pigmen keep dying and respawning. I have searched under the bedrock for and found a cave which I slabbed, which greatly helped the farm to work better, but the farm still breaks after 5 minutes.
I noticed that as the zombie pigman numbers decreased, the number of entities loaded stayed about the same, which makes me think that something else is using the mob cap. Could the zombie pigmen be spawing somewhere else? Could something else be using the mob cap?
Ilmango had iron golems in the farm to get rid of the magma cubes, but I didn't have the iron for that, and i figured that the magma cubes will work their way off of the platform eventually anyway. Which mob cap do the pigmen use?
How does their spawning work? Zombie pigmen use the ordinary hostile mob cap and need solid, non bedrock, blocks with 1. If it's and you are playing single player then mobs should only be able to spawn down to 15 blocks or so under the bedrock and unless you built something other than the farm above the bedrock where they can spawn then more caves just under the bedrock and max about 60 blocks out from straight under your position should be the only place.
Just testing. The farm is atand I have checked all of the spawning places. I am on a server. Does this mean that when the pigmen die in my farm other mobs in the overworld can spawn and use up the mob cap? Will lighting up the spawn chunks help with this sort of problem? Servers have a server-wide hostile mob cap. If other players are farming other mobs somewhere else that eats into the server mob cap. The mob cap is per dimension, right?Drowned farming is a way to harvest experience orbs and loot dropped by both zombie and drowned mobs.
In all editions, this farm produces the usual rotten fleshgoldarmorand weapons dropped by zombies, as well as experience orbs. In Bedrock Edition the farm also produces tridents and nautilus shells dropped by drowned.
More complex farms are possible, particularly underwater farms for naturally-spawned drowned, which yield tridents in Java Edition. The basic survival-mode farm described here is still useful in Java Edition for gaining a quick and easy way to harvest experience and zombie drops without requiring significant construction or materials.
There are two main ways to farm drowneddepending on the Edition and which drops you desire most. In most cases, it's a good idea to kill the drowned manually to obtain the more valuable loot. The detailed instructions in this tutorial explain how to use a flooded dungeon that converts zombies to drowned.
This is the easiest method to implement in survival mode. In Java Editionthis farm produces the usual zombie drops as well as experience XPbut it doesn't produce the tridents and nautilus shells specific to drowned. In Bedrock Editionthis farm does produce nautilus shells and tridents. A flooded dungeon works by spawning zombies naturally from the monster spawner in the dungeon.
The zombies are funneled into an underwater chamber where they drown. Once converted to drowned, the player can manually kill them for their loot and experience. An underwater farm is the only known way to farm tridents in Java Edition. Drowned farms in a body of water are more complicated because they function similar to a dry-land mob farm. In an underwater farm, naturally-spawned drowned are attracted to a location and funneled into one area where the player can kill them.
A villager is typically used as bait to attract drowned, and the funneling can be accomplished with bubble columns. Transporting a villager to an undersea room in survival mode is a complex undertaking that requires much forethought, preparation, implementation time, and risk.
Instead of a villager, a turtle egg might also work as bait, although this is less reliable because drowned don't detect eggs as they do villagers; they must first happen to look in the egg's direction, then have a clear path to the egg, and the egg must have sufficient space above to allow trampling on it.
The simplest way to start a survival-mode drowned and zombie farm is to locate a dungeon room that contains a zombie mob spawner. Ideally the room should be reasonably close to the overworld surface, but can be any depth that allows for digging 5 blocks or so underneath the floor.
Sometimes a dungeon is found a short distance inside a cave entrance. Unlike an XP farm that generally requires a long falling distance from the dungeon to bring the mobs to near death, no deep excavation is required for a drowned farm.
To construct a survival-mode drowned farm, you need a conveniently located dungeon with a zombie monster spawneras well as a good weapon to clear out the dungeon, a cheap weapon to harvest drowned, torchespickaxesa water bucketand a few signs. Optionally, glass blocks are helpful for viewing when a zombie becomes drowned. Hoppers and a couple of chests also aid collection but are not necessary.
For convenience, it is nice to have nearby outside the dungeon rooma source of water to scoop with the bucket, gates or doors to keep mobs from wandering into your cave while you work, and a home base or temporary base with your bed, crafting table, and other helpful items a short walk away.
Take note of the coordinate location of the center block along the wall with your opening. This floor block is in line with the mob spawner. In the last step, you flood the dungeon with water and dig a hole in this location for the mobs to fall through.
Next, underneath the dungeon, excavate the trap room.
The room should be large enough to move around in, and contain the trap described below. At the most basic level, the trap consists of a single water block that the zombie falls through from above, landing on a block or a hopper so the zombie's head remains in the water and drowns it.
And after having a little look at google I decided that I can't be bothered sorting through the text wall and my internet is slow atm The poll is for ordinary spawners not double spawners just to clarify. In addition if you have a really good up-to-date xp farm please show some pictures or link a video in so I can check it soon.

Anyway couldnt you just throw a splash potion of damage at the feet of the endermen to kill them?

I can't seem to find many clear articles, and videos An article can show me its value in 5 seconds, less if it has a picture I have yet to find a video that gets to the point rather than having a self-aggrandizing introduction, or presents itself in text that doesn't move at the speed I want.
I can watch a video that actually contains the information I want, but finding it is trying my patience. Rollback Post to Revision RollBack.
If you don't have a spawner then you're gonna need a lot of digging or materials to make a decent one. There's plenty of Youtube tutorials out there. Quote from Purechillos. See what you think of this one:. If you have 50 cows, breed all of them, then kill 50 to even it out, then you would get experience, not to mention what you get from breeding all of 'em.
Then, using all of the food you collect, you go on a midnight killing spree. You kill mobs until it's time for next breeding, then repeat, and repeat, and repeat This is for the people who have a lot of time on their hands.

It is possible for the user to create such a trap that can be used by simply standing still, and looking at the endermen. This angers any you look at, luring them into the trap. Most endermen traps are best suited to the Endas endermen spawn at a considerably higher rate there.
You can still create this trap in the overworld, but endermen spawn far less often. To use the trap, stand on the pillar, grab a sword and look at an enderman. It will rush towards the player and fall into the pit. Activate the lever and the pistons will extend. Wait a few moments and deactivate the lever.
The enderman should be weakened by having its head smashed and the player can kill it with one strike. An upgrade is placing pressure plates wooden for testing, so the player can activate the trap with an item, and stone for the enderman at the bottom of the pit and rigging redstone into an AND Gate. The lever primes the trap and the enderman touching the pressure plates activates the pistons.
It is possible for the user to gain EXP from this trap, as the player hitting a mob once will register the mobs' death as a player-kill. This means that even with the pistons crushing the mobs down to half a heart, you can still give experience from the player hitting the mobs at their point of death. It is also possible to switch the levers and pressure pads with a button, these can be timed to crush the endermen, then release when they reach the health points of half a heart, readying the endermen for a one hit kill from the player.
The farm is built in the End at least blocks away from any spawnable block, so the endermen can only spawn there.
A platform is built for the endermen to fall onto from spawning pads built at least 43 blocks above the platform, with rings built upwards to prevent endermen falling onto an area that isn't the platform.
On the 43rd block up vines are placed to break the fall, so the endermen take The spawning pads either have pressure plates on them, connected to sticky pistons with blocks attached, or a tripwire attached to normal pistons to push the endermen off the pads, down the drop and landing on the platform with only half a heart of health left, allowing for one hit kills by punching.
A good way to start punching is to create a two-high ceiling and start staring at the endermen. A similar design uses TNT ignited by a player with a bow enchanted with Flame.
Since the player ignited the TNT that killed the enderman, they will receive experience orbs. Using this farm it is possible to get to level 30 in minutes, provided enough spawning pads have been built. Make sure to have many chests nearby to store the massive amounts of enderpearls! When near an enderman, place down a boat and right click to enter it. Approach the enderman with the boat, the enderman will get trapped in the boat allowing you to get a safe and easy kill.
