I have two ideas, the first one would be 2 chunks wide (18 blocks) and go 3 chunks back (24 blocks) that way they don't have to die before more spawn. Then they get pushed forward with ice to the lava

My second idea is I have 2 chunks wide, and 3 chunks tall, then fall down and get pushed into lava. So it a lot more compact and takes up less space.

Which of the two designs are more efficient taking space and produce into consideration?

  • So... what are you asking? Are you asking which design is better? Also, do you have access to custom mob spawners?

It seems as though the second design would work better. As long as the spawners aren't within 9 blocks of each other, they should work at full speed. Tesselable, vertical designs are always my first choice, especially with my own Survival-built spawn traps. Just make sure that there are no blocks without water on them that the golems could get stuck on.

  • I was thinking about the dead center or the chunk, since it is towny I do have the exact chunks. So that will not be a problem. My main question is where on the z axis in side the chunk

  • Chunk borders have no effect on mob spawners, except that they need to be in a loaded chunk for them to work.

  • Their is a mob limit per chunk, so in a way it dose. That why my plan is to have it spread out like that

  • Couldn't you simply put it in the spawn chunks of your world ? (Where a compass points where you have no bed). This way you have your spawner running 24/7. No need to care about mob limits (well not really) since it will be always running no matter where you are in the world.

  • @Jaconah no there isn't. There is a total mob cap which is calculated based on the number of loaded chunks.
