I created a new Minecraft PE Server and no mobs are spawning in my server; neither passive or hostile mobs, not even tall grass.

The difficulty is not peaceful and I have restarted the server.

We also spawned in a zombie in the daytime with a zombie egg, but it didn't try to attack us nor did it burn in the sun.

  • Please post a screenshot of the zombie.

  • You can use iCloud picture sharing so that you can access your pictures with iTunes app on your computer or download the free Stack Exchange app to your phone.

  • Minecraft PE servers don't have any official hosting method. You might have to ask this question on the site where you got your hosting tool. Or at least tell us what tool you're using so we can give answers made for that tool.

As of April 18, 2015, PocketMine does not support mobs. It does not spawn mobs naturally, you must use a spawn egg, but then it won't move. The developers are working on this feature but until then you will have to wait. PocketMine doesn't spawn anything naturally including all types of mobs, tall grass, and fire**. This applies to all platforms that PocketMine supports.

** Fire doesn't burn the block that it was placed on either.

  • Oh, I didnt know this.

I have the same problem, I was using the leet server hosting app and noticed that with peaceful off and both passive and aggressive mobs weren't spawning. At that time is when I did some research and found out that leet actually uses pocketmine for their servers, because you can choose how you want your server hosted on the android version and change it, but can't on iOS. They are planning to add support in the future. Hope this helped.
