I want to make a mob drop trap with spawners in the Nether, and as it's the Nether I can't use water, so I want to have them spawn on one platform which retracts with pistons every so often. I tried to cover the area around the platform with cobblestone slabs, but the mobs were just spawning on the slabs. How do I make sure they spawn on that platform only (with the least amount of blocks)?

I recreated the platform with the spawners in a superflat world, the gold blocks represent the platform where the mobs should spawn:

  • Is it possible for you to include a picture so that we can get a better image of what you mean?

    @Riftcaster added it. Not the original spawners as those have too many failed attempts in them to serve as a proper image, but a similar spawner platform

  • Have you thought of using torches or lava, lol?

  • @Riftcaster For some reason, lighting the place didn't work. Filling the are with blocks, like Rudolf answered, did work though

To prevent Blazes spawning around the platform, you can do a few things:

  • Fill the area around with blocks, or

  • Fill the ground and adjacent walls with torches. Place them everywhere, on each block you can, except the platform and it's close surroundings

I'd recommend doing something in between - encasing the spawner and platform, and fill the area outside of the box with torches.

Good luck!
