On Minecraft PE I have a small wooden house with a mine inside and wooden flooring

But would there be any reason for mobs to spawn on my roof of the house?

  • Any possibility of getting a screenshot? That could help us see what the problem is. – MBraedley Feb 20 '14 at 15:34
  • I tried to but it does not work – T-u-s-t-y Feb 20 '14 at 15:37

    A better shot of the roof itself might help. We could see if there's any portion of it that might not be illuminated. – Zibbobz Feb 20 '14 at 15:39
  • OK I will do that – T-u-s-t-y Feb 20 '14 at 15:41
  • You can make a stack of dirt to stand on though. – Zibbobz Feb 20 '14 at 15:41

To eliminate a few possibilities:

  • If it's spiders, spiders will climb onto your house roof and wait for you to exit to jump on you. It's annoying, and the reason why I always leave my house running and screaming.
  • The coal(!) you have placed near your door would allow a mob to jump up onto it, then onto your roof. Mobs can jump surprisingly high.
  • Your roof might not be illuminated enough. Light it up with more torches than you think are necessary. Roofs are notorious for being hard to light.
  • It's not obsidian it's coal also endermen are not in pe yet – T-u-s-t-y Feb 20 '14 at 15:42

    I...did not even know you could MAKE a solid block of coal. – Zibbobz Feb 20 '14 at 15:43
  • Edited all the same, since Endermen won't be a problem. – Zibbobz Feb 20 '14 at 15:53
  • @Zibbobz the latest pe patch introduced blocks of coal – Ender Feb 21 '14 at 0:32
