comment Problems with Minecraft Spawn Trap Up In The Sky
I have done that. Mobs do spawn, but it's sporadic. They hop around a bit, and then get pushed down the hole to their horrible falling death as they should. Endermen never seem to spawn though, and I only get a few mobs popping up every once in a while. (9 hrs yielded 16 gunpowder, 20 arrows, a bit of string, and some bones. Seems low, right?)

lc value is 255, so that's higher than the top of my trap, so that should be fine. I would have thought that building it in the sky would REDUCE the number of blocks it would need to check, because most of them would be air, right? Am I missing something?

Ha ha, that IS a screenshot of the trap, albeit from the inside. Probably not too clear. I tried standing closer, but it doesn't seem to make much difference, unfortunately...

Good point about how far away you wait; I think I had misinterpreted how the spawning range works. 24-32 blocks is the range they appear in and move around, correct? (Screens: i.imgur.com/zNRcx.png i.imgur.com/rhQaU.png Pretty dark, but then, it's kind of supposed to be, right?)

The water is on a timed piston circuit, probably about 30 seconds between flushes, which last about 10 seconds each. So, the whole trap floods every 30 seconds or so. (Does that affect spawning, or detection of spawnable areas?) I'm pretty sure I've lit up all the cave areas under the trap, and I'm 150 blocks above ground level, so stuff shouldn't be spawning outside of a 128 block radius from me, right? The only thing within 128 blocks is my trap!
