I have built my house in Minecraft PE, and I have a ton of fences and sticks, but I need to know how big of a perimeter I need to let me sleep at night?

There appears to be quite a few differences between the Pocket Edition and the 360/PC version. Due to this I don't think this should be closed as a duplicate. – Wipqozn Feb 12 '13 at 0:09
Hi, @GeloDCastroid, I've edited your question to add in a bit of punctuation and taken the game name out of the title. That's done to eliminate the redundancy for SEO. – Frank Feb 12 '13 at 0:16
SEO? and if you are going to answer (cough @Wipqozn cough) then answer, don't comment. – Neffer_23 Feb 12 '13 at 22:55
I'd recommend reading our about page. We work a little differently than most other gaming sites. An overriding rule across the SE network (of which Arqade is a part of) is, "Be nice". We are trying to help you. – Frank Feb 13 '13 at 0:10

From spawners, you have to be sixteen blocks away for it to start spawning. In the PC version, monsters will spawn (naturally) as far as your set render distance and/or FOV (Field Of View).

This question is specifically asking about PE, not the full PC version. – DBS Dec 12 '15 at 16:34

I've played PE a lot and have a rough idea of the radius of monster spawning. I think that in PE, monsters can't spawn in a radius of about 15-20 blocks and the zone of monsters not able to spawn is about... 60 blocks after the normal no monster spawning radius. Note that this information may not be very accurate and uses rough estimates by the looks from where I am.

Using "roughly" and "about" and "I think" doesn't help anyone. Try to back up your answer with canonical references or sources. – waifu Feb 15 '13 at 4:21
